|Sony Hack is Almost Certainly an Inside Job:
(Posted on December 19, 2014 by Paul Joseph Watson )
Now, if I were in Kim Jong-un's shoes, I know how I would respond - publish REAL documentaries exposing Western (especially US) leaders, and their very real 'abominable peccadilloes', and reprint in various languages books exposing the TRUTH about their drug smuggling, paedophilia, money and real estate frauds, political assassinations, etc.
Sure, Western MSM won't publicise these books and video documentaries, but their existence will get around the world, despite Western attempts to block them.
And why North Korea, China, Russia, Venezuela, Cuba (and much of Latin America), Malaysia, Iran and other countries don't do the same thing is puzzling.
These countries could expose the facts the Monsanto's GMO's are deadly, as are it's glyphosates and other products; the the US is widely spraying Chemtrails, and their adverse reaction on the weather (including California drought); the reality of Morgellons; the true nature of WI-FI in schools, and it's deadly 'New Thalidomide' potential; the damage to insects, animals and even plants and trees of the mass spread of microwave communications (mobile phone providers haven't inserted an opt-out of liability for harm for nothing - any more than Monsanto got the 'Get Out of Jail Free' from the US Establishment for any damage done or adverse effects of it's 'safe' GMO's; and of US manufacture and release onto the market of fake gold bullion bars, in reality gold-plated tungsten.
Step up to the plate, threatened nations, and pro-actively hit these War Criminals, Criminals Against Peace, and Criminals Against Humanity hard, before you get picked off, one by one.

“Despite providing no proof of North Korean involvement, President Barack Obama promised a “proportional response”. Promptly, North Korea’s Internet was mysteriously shut down for a day.

The false flagging of North Korea: CIA weaponizes Hollywood
CIA-BadgeThe campaign of aggression against North Korea, from the hacking of Sony and the crescendo of noise over the film, The Interview, bears all the markings of a CIA false flag operation.
The hacking and alleged threats to moviegoers has been blamed entirely on North Korea, without a shred of credible evidence beyond unsubstantiated accusations by the FBI. Pyongyang’s responsibility has not been proven. But it has already been officially endorsed, and publicly embraced as fact.
The idea of “America under attack by North Korea” is a lie.
The actual individuals of the mysterious group responsible for the hacking remain conveniently unidentified. A multitude of possibilities—Sony insiders, hackers-for-hire, generic Internet vandalism—have not been explored in earnest. The more plausible involvement of US spying agencies—the CIA, the NSA, etc. , their overwhelming technological capability and their peerless hacking and surveillance powers—remains studiously ignored.
Who benefits? It is illogical for Pyongyang to have done it. Isolated, impoverished North Korea, which has wanted improved relations with the United States for years (to no avail), gains nothing by cyberattacking the United States with its relatively weak capabilities, and face the certainty of overwhelming cyber and military response. On the other hand, Washington benefits greatly from any action that leads to regime change in North Korea.
But discussion about Pyongyang’s involvement—or lack of—risks missing the larger point.
This project, from the creation of The Interview to the well-orchestrated international incident, has been guided by the CIA, the Pentagon, and the State Department from the start. It is propaganda. It is a weapon of psychological warfare. It is an especially perverted example of military-intelligence manipulation of popular culture for the purpose of war.
There is nothing funny about any of it.
The Interview was made with the direct and open involvement of CIA and Rand Corporation operatives for the express purpose of destabilizing North Korea. Star and co-director Seth Rogen has admitted that he worked “directly with people who work in the government as consultants, who I’m convinced are in the CIA”. Originally conceived to be a plot taking place in an “unnamed country”, Sony Pictures co-chairman Michael Lynton, who also sits on the board of the Rand Corporation, encouraged the film makers to make the movie overtly about murdering Kim Jong-Un. Bruce Bennett, the Rand Corporation’s North Korean specialist, also had an active role, expressing enthusiasm that the film would assist regime change and spark South Korean action against Pyongyang. Other government figures from the State Department, even operatives connected to Hillary Clinton, read the script.
The infantile, imbecilic, tasteless, reckless idiots involved with The Interview, including the tasteless Rogen and co-director Evan Goldberg, worked with these military-intelligence thugs for months. “Hung out” with them. They do not seem to have had any problem being the political whores for these Langley death merchants. In fact, they had fun doing it. They seem not to give a damn, or even half a damn, that the CIA and the Pentagon have used them, and co-opted the film for an agenda far bigger than the stupid movie itself. All they seem to care about was that they are getting publicity, and more publicity, and got to make a stupid movie. Idiots.
The CIA has now succeeded in setting off a wave of anti-North Korea war hysteria across America. Witness the ignorant squeals and cries from ignorant Americans about how “we can’t let North Korea blackmail us”, “we can’t let Kim take away our free speech”. Listen to the ridiculous debate over whether Sony has the “courage” to release the film to “stand up to the evil North Koreans” who would “blackmail America” and “violate the rights” of idiot filmgoers, who now see it as a “patriotic duty” to see the film.
These mental midgets—their worldviews shaped by the CIA culture ministry with its endorsed pro-war entertainment, violent video games, and gung-ho shoot ‘em ups—are hopelessly brain-curdled, irretrievably lost. Nihilistic and soulless, as well as stupid, most Americans have no problem seeing Kim Jong-Un killed, on screen or in reality. This slice of ugly America is the CIA’s finest post-9/11 army: violent, hate-filled, easily manipulated, eager to obey sheeple who march to whatever drumbeat they set.
And then there are the truly dumb, fools who are oblivious to most of reality, who would say “hey lighten up, it’s only a comedy” and “it’s only a movie”. Naïve, entitled, exceptionalist Americans think the business of the war—the murderous agenda they and their movie are helping the CIA carry out —is all just a game.
The CIA’s business is death, and that there are actual assassination plans in the files of the CIA, targeting heads of state. Kim Jong-Un is undoubtedly on a real assassination list. This is not funny, either.
The real act of war
The provocative, hostile diplomatic stance of the Obama administration speaks for itself. Washington wanted to spark an international incident. It wants regime change in Pyongyang, does not care what North Korea or China think, and does not fear anything North Korea will do about it.
On the other hand, imagine if a film were about the assassination of Benjamin Netanyahu and the toppling of the government in Tel Aviv. Such a film, if it would ever be permitted even in script form, would be stopped cold. If it made it through censors that “magically” never slowed down The Interview (and yes, there is censorship in America, a lot of it) Obama would personally fly to Tel Aviv to apologize. At the very least, Washington would issue statements distancing themselves from the film and its content.
Not so in the case of The Interview. Because American elites actually want the Kim family murdered.
Despite providing no proof of North Korean involvement, President Barack Obama promised a “proportional response”. Promptly, North Korea’s Internet was mysteriously shut down for a day.
Unless one is naïve to believe in this coincidence, all signs point to US spy agencies (CIA, NSA, etc.) or hackers working on behalf of Washington and Langley.
Given the likelihood that North Korea had nothing to do with either the hacking of Sony, the initial pulling of the movie (a big part of the publicity stunt, that was not surprisingly reversed) or the “blackmailing” of moviegoers, the shutting down of North Korea’s Internet was therefore a unilateral, unprovoked act of war. Washington has not officially taken responsibility. For reasons of plausible denial, it never will.
Ad Optimized by Adpushup
Perhaps it was a dry run. A message. The US got to test how easily it can take down North Korea’s grid. As we witnessed, given overwhelming technological advantage, it was very easy. And when a war against Pyongyang begins in earnest, American forces will know exactly what they will do.
The US is flexing its Asia-Pacific muscles, sending a message not only to Pyongyang, but to China, a big future target. Some of the other muscle-flexing in recent months included the anti-Beijing protests in Hong Kong (assisted by the CIA and the US State Department), ongoing provocations in the South China Sea over disputed oil, and new defense agreements that place new anti-missile systems and missile-guided naval vessels to the region.
The bottom line is that America has once again been mobilized into supporting a new war that could take place soon. The CIA and Sony have successfully weaponized a stupid movie, making it into a cause and a battle cry.
If and when bombs fall on North Korea, blood will be on the hands of the makers of The Interview, every single executive who allowed it to be made, and the hordes who paid to see it.
If America were a decent, sane society, The Interview would be exposed, roundly denounced, boycotted and shunned. Instead it is celebrated.
The CIA should be condemned. Instead, Seth Rogen hangs out with them. America, increasingly dysfunctional, loves them. Obeys them.
The false flagging of Russia
Regarding The Interview, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich issued a statement in sympathy with North Korea, correctly calling the film’s concept aggressive and scandalous, and decried the US retaliatory response as counterproductive and dangerous to international relations.
Of course. Washington has no interest in improved international relations.
The Russians should know.
Like Kim Jong-Un, Vladimir Putin has been vilified, demonized and false-flagged, incessantly. If Kim is today’s object of ridicule, Putin is Evil Incarnate.
Consider the hysterical, desperate provocations by Washington in recent months.
A US-NATO coup, engineered by the CIA, toppled the government of Ukraine, planting a pro-US neo-Nazi criminal apparatus on Russia’s doorstep. The CIA and its worldwide network of propagandists pinned the blame on Putin and Russia for aggression, and for obstructing “democracy”.
The MH-17 jetliner is downed by Ukrainian operatives, with the support of the CIA, Mi-6, etc. etc. This false flag operation was blamed on Russia— “Putin’s Missile”. The US and NATO are still trying to pin these murders on Putin.
The war against the Islamic State—a massive CIA false flag operation—seeks to topple with the the Assad government as well as to militarily counter Russia. The ongoing Anglo-American conquest of regional oil and gas supplies, and energy transport routes is also aimed at checkmating Russia and China across the region.
The US and NATO have attacked the Russian federation with sanctions. The US and Saudi Arabia have collapsed oil prices, to further destroy the Russian economy. Full-scale military escalations are being planned. The US Congress is pushing new legislation tantamount to an open declaration of war against Russia.
What next? Perhaps it is time for the CIA to produce a Seth Rogen-James Franco movie about assassinating Putin. Another “parody”. Or how about a movie about killing Assad, or anyone else the United States wants to make into a Public Enemy? Don’t think Langley isn’t working on it.
The return of the Bushes (who were never gone)
In the midst of all escalating war hysteria comes news that Jeb Bush is “actively exploring” running for president in 2016. The long predicted return of the Bush family, the kings of terrorism, the emperors of the false flag operation, back to the White House appears imminent.
The CIA will have its favorite family back in the Oval Office, with true CIA scion to manage the apocalyptic wars are likely to be launched in earnest in the next two years: Russia/Ukraine, North Korea, the Middle East.
Jeb Bush will “finish the job”.
The 2016 presidential “contest” will be a charade. It is likely to put forth two corrupt establishment political “friends” posing as adversaries, when in fact, they are longtime comrades and conspirators. On one side, Hillary (and Bill) Clinton. On the other side, Jeb Bush, with George H.W., George W. and all of the Bush cronies crawling back out of the rotten woodwork. The fact is that the Clintons and Bushes, and their intertwined networks, have run the country since the 1980s, their respective camps taking turns in power, with Obama as transitional figurehead (his administration has always been run by neoliberal elites connected to the Clintonistas, including Hillary Clinton herself).
The collective history of the Bushes stretches back to the very founding of the American intelligence state. It is the very history of modern war criminality. The resume is George H.W. Bush—the CIA operative and CIA Director—is long and bloody, and littered with cocaine dust. The entire Bush family ran the Iran-Contra/CIA drug apparatus, with the Clintons among the Bush network’s full partners in the massive drug/weapons/banking frauds of that era, the effects of which still resonate today. And we need not remind that the Bush clan and 9/11 are responsible for the world of terror and false flag foreign policy and deception that we suffer today.
While it remains too early to know which way the Establishment will go with their selection (and it depends on how world war shakes out between now and 2016), it is highly likely that Jeb
Bush would be the pick
Hillary Clinton has already been scandalized—“Benghazi-ed”. Jeb Bush, on the other hand, has ideal Establishment/CIA pedigree. He has waited years for the stupid American public to forget the horrors that his family—Georges H.W. and W.— brought humanity. And now Americans , with their ultra-short memories, have indeed forgotten, if they had ever understood it in the first place.
And the American public does not know who Jeb Bush is, beyond the last name. Jeb Bush, whom Barbara Bush always said was the “smart one”, has been involved in Bush narco-criminal business since Iran-Contra. His criminal activities in Florida, his connection with anti-Castro Cuban terrorists and other connections are there, for those who bother to investigate them. His Latin American connections—including his ability to speak fluent Spanish, a Latin wife and a half-Latin son (George P. Bush, the next up and coming political Bush)—conveniently appeals to the fastest-growing demographic, as well as those in the southern hemisphere drug trade. Recent Obama overtures towards the Latino demographic—immigration, Cuba—appear to be a Democratic Party move to counter Jeb Bush’s known strengths in the same demographic.
Today, in the collective American mind, Kim Jong-Un and Vladimir Putin are “the bad guys”. But the mass murdering war criminal Bushes are saints. “Nice guys”.
A Jeb Bush presidency will be a pure war presidency, one that promises terror, more unspeakable than we are experiencing now, lording it over a world engulfed in holocaust.
This is not a movie.

|North Korea was NOT Behind the Sony Hack According to Multiple Security Experts:

'North Korea was NOT behind the Sony hack according to multiple security experts who discredit FBI findings and reveal that a studio insider named 'Lena' may be responsible
The FBI last week announced that they had discovered conclusive evidence proving the North Korean government was behind the Sony hack
President Obama then attacked the country for their behavior during a news conference, and informed them that the United States would retaliate
Now, the findings of the FBI are being called into question by many of the cybersecurity industry's leading experts
What's more, after an independent investigation, Norse has determined that they believe a woman named 'Lena' is responsible for the hack
Almost every expert stated that they believe the hack had to have been an inside job.
By Chris Spargo for MailOnline
Published: 19:59, 25 December 2014 | Updated: 13:05, 26 December 2014
The FBI just last week confirmed what many Americans already assumed to be a forgone conclusion when they revealed there was conclusive evidence that North Korea's government was behind the hacking of Sony, an attack the government bureau said was carried out as a way 'to inflict significant harm on a U.S. business and suppress the right of American citizens to express themselves.'
Then, in a press conference on Friday, President Obama not only attacked North Korea and leader Kim Jong-un for their attempts to 'intimidate' Americans through their actions, but went so far as to warn the country that America would retaliate in response their actions.
Almost immediately the North Korean leader issued a statement denying involvement and demanding an apology from the United States for their 'evil doings.'
And while that apology is probably never coming, it seems that Kim Jong-un may be right, at least according to numerous cybersecurity experts and hackers who have come forward to not only point out the flaws in the FBI's investigation, but also possibly reveal the identity of the culprit.
The first FBI claim that Rogers tears down also happens to be one the strongest that the FBI has, saying in their statement; 'The malware used in this attack revealed links to other malware that the FBI knows North Korean actors previously developed.'
There are two problems with this according to Harris, and both have to do with the bureau basing their findings on assumptions as opposed to fact.
First,while a similar malware may have been used in a previous cyber attack that North Korea has been linked to, that does not serve as definitive proof that this attack was carried out by North Korea.
Harris then further chips away at this statement, pointing out that he and many security experts do not believe North Korea was involved in those previous incidents, whose coding the FBI is referencing to tie the attacks together.
What's more, the coding for one of the two malwares, Shamoon, was leaked according to Harris, and would not be difficult for any hacker to find.
He then takes aim at the FBI conclusion that since the IP addresses used in the attack are addresses used by North Korea in previous attacks, they must be responsible.
According to Harris, the reasoning is flawed as these addresses are used by everyone from major hackers to even small time Internet criminals to avoid detection, meaning these addresses could tie virtually anyone in the hacking community, or even someone using stolen credit cards to shop online and avoid detection, to the attack.
Then, there is the fact that the demand by the hacking group, who call themselves the Guardians of Peace, that the The Interview not be released was not announced until weeks into the hack, and only after some members of the media had begun to perpetuate the now widely accepted story that the goal of the hack was to make sure The Interview would never be distributed by Sony.
Kurt Stammberger, a senior vice president with cybersecurity firm Norse, echoed many of Harris' statements in a separate interview, and said that given the severity of the hack it had to have been an inside job.
Stammberger, whose company decided to carry out their own independent investigation, told CBS News; 'We are very confident that this was not an attack master-minded by North Korea and that insiders were key to the implementation of one of the most devastating attacks in history.'
That's not all either, as he says their research seems to be pointing them towards a woman named Lena who even claims be a member of Guardians of Peace.
'This woman was in precisely the right position and had the deep technical background she would need to locate the specific servers that were compromised,' revealed Stammberger.
Then there is world famous hacker Hector Monsegur of Anonymous, known to many as Sabu, who does not think North Korea could have hacked Sony, a company whose internal systems he knows all to well as he has hacked into their database........'

'Anti-virus pioneer John McAfee claims to have been in contact with the group of hackers behind the devastating cyber-attack against Sony Pictures and guarantees they are not from North Korea.
Speaking to IBTimes UK about his current roster of security startups under his Future Tense brand - including secure messaging app Chadder - McAfee spoke about working with the FBI previously but said that, in this case, the agency was "wrong".
"I can guarantee they are wrong. It has to do with a group of hackers - I will not name them - who are civil libertarians and who hate the confinement the restrictions the music industry and the movie industry has placed on art and so they are behind it."

Sony Pictures hackers 'got sloppy' when trying to hide their location, says FBI
'The Interview' becomes Sony's No 1 online film, having raked in $31m
Sony CEO speaks for first time about 'vicious and malicious' cyberattack
In December Sony Pictures was the victim of a devastating cyber-attack by a group calling themselves Guardians of Peace. They crippled the studio's internal systems and stole vast troves of sensitive data, including unreleased films and private email conversations.
The group eventually threatened violence if the studio released the film The Interview, which pokes fun at North Korea, and Sony Pictures capitulated and failed to release it in cinemas. The FBI, who have been investigating the attack, have blamed North Korea for the attack though concrete evidence has yet to be shown publicly.
'I don't want to name them - that would make me a nark'
The 69-year-old McAfee indicated that he has been in touch with the hackers, adding that, like most hacking groups, its members are located around the world.
McAfee said he agreed with the reasons the hackers attacked Sony Pictures.
According to McAfee, the group attacked Sony Pictures as it is indicative of an industry which is "controlling the content of art," adding "I'm sorry but I don't like that myself. I don't like it one iota."
McAfee said he was not going to identify the group behind the attack because he doesn't want to be a "nark" adding "I don't mind that the North Koreans are blamed, I'm not particularly happy with what the North Koreans are doing."
McAfee said that no one was being hurt by the FBI's accusations, that they were not arresting anyone and putting them in jail. However it should be noted that the US government has used the FBI's accusation to impose further sanctions on the country as well as 10 officials.
"Maybe [North Korea] have been wrongly accused in this case, but they have not been accused in cases where they should have been accused."
McAfee first rose to prominence in the 1980s as a security software pioneer with his eponymous company McAfee Associates.
He has been in the news in recent years for his more outlandish behaviour. In November 2012 he went on the run from police in Belize, where he was wanted for questioning in relation to the murder of his neighbour Gregory Faull.
McAfee's whereabouts are not known at the moment, but he was last seen in Portland, Oregon where he was evicted from his apartment for apparently stalking a property manager.
Talking about his relationship with hackers, McAfee said he has gone from being their opponent and enemy to their confidant:
"I founded McAfee Associates and they [hackers] were my enemies for years as were all other hacking groups, but over the years I began to respect their values at least, I had talks with many of them on the phone. I know many people within Anonymous, I was the keynote speaker at Defcon in Las Vegas and got a standing ovation."
McAfee added: "I'm not saying that their methods have my approval but I am saying is that the reason they do the things that they do is valid."
The on-the-run rebel told one story about how his relationship with hackers has evolved over the years.
When McAfee was in Belize and it came to light he was being sought for questioning about the murder of his neighbour Gregory Faull, McAfee fled the country.

Sony Pictures hack: Anonymous plans to leak The Interview online
In what was a show of solidarity with McAfee, Anonymous attacked the internet infrastructure in Belize, shutting down the computer systems of the government for three days.
This, however, prevented McAfee from posting a message on his blog, which he had just started using to update people on his status and whereabouts.
McAfee managed to get in touch with a member of Anonymous and pleaded with them to stop the attack, even though the hacktivist group believed it was showing solidarity with him.
Within an hour of the message being sent, McAfee said the computers were back up and running.
'Hackers want freedom - and I support them'
This is not to say that he entirely agrees with everything a group like Anonymous does:
"I do not always condone their means [shutting down the Bank of America] although what they are trying to do was show solidarity with the founder of Wikileaks, which I approve of.
"These people [hackers] by and large have good hearts, they want freedom, freedom of expression, freedom to live unobserved and I am solidly, solidly behind that."
McAfee was at pains to point out that he was not indicating it was a group necessarily associated with Anonymous which was behind the Sony Pictures attack...'
I don't know how McAfee reasons no one is hurt by the FBI's accusations - does he think sanctions are harmless, particularly to a poor country such as North Korea?
Ah well, at least the FBI have got their act together; years after 9/11 they were still claiming 'no hard evidence' linking OBL to 9/11!!
