Skip to comments.Global Warming Emails May Have Come From Insider
Posted on 11/21/2009 10:51:23 AM PST by Starman417
New information on the CRU emails, now it appears it may not be a hack but a insider:
The anonymous tipster, whom many people initially assumed had "hacked" into the computers at the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia (repeatedly called the "Hadley CRU," by mistake), might in fact be a CRU insider who released the files for his own reasons.
The user, known only as "FOIA" (which now appears to be a reference to the British equivalent of the US Freedom of Information Act), left only one comment on The Air Vent to announce his release of his 61-MB ZIP archive. He has never been heard from since, nor has anyone stepped forward claiming to be that person since the story became widely known.
Persons knowledgeable in information security hold that this is not the behavior of a hacker. A hacker normally boasts of his act, even if he were hired or otherwise suborned to commit his act by someone else. These two reports provide illustrations of such behavior.
Other commenters have observed that the very form and organization of the archive, which expands to 168 MB of text files, word-processing documents, PDF files, raw data, and even program code, indicate that someone already having access to the system logged in through his usual channels, made the archive, and then logged out. The user's choice of words indicate someone having a motive to disclose to the world certain activities and mindsets that the user found distasteful, at least.
This Examiner has been able to reconstruct a timeline of the story
Read the original article to see the timeline, it is quite damning evidence that this was no hacker, but an insider and it all boils down to:

What’s disgusting here, is that more emphasis is put on determining who leaked the material, than on the facts the material exposes.
MSM kills the messenger if they don’t like the message
Click on the image above to see the idiot Gore proclaim that the center of the earth is millions of degrees.
This video link starts the video at the exact spot where he says it.
Yep, but the NYT made that harder to do yesterday by acknowledging that the hacked emails were legitimate.
The world owes the leaker a debt of gratitude, and possibly a lot more, should this information help stop the global warming scam. The leaker may have saved millions of lives while throwing a stumbling block in the way of tyranny. It remains to be seen how the state media will spin this, or bury it.
Has there been any comment from the CRU?
The ice cap isn't the ONLY thing that has grown in size and thickness. Look at fat Al.
We can force the MSM to acknowledge the information gleened by the hacking of the CRU by flooding the comment sections of MSM on-line web sites with info and challenges.
Being that the earth’s core is millions of degrees hot, does it really matter?
Take the Nobel away from Gore and give it to the hacker.
“The guy might need some protection right now...He should step to the podium for his protection...”
Perhaps a woman...
China, Russia, and India have no use for this passing as well.
I think the enthusiasm with which many of the AGW-sceptics have jumped on this hack tells us more about the sceptics than the scientists.
Alinsky must be so proud. If you're caught red-handed, desperately cling to mocking or scrutinizing the mental health of whoever caught you.
Of course not. And that's why I'm sitting in my swimsuit here in balmy Northern Illinois. Snow is just a vague memory anymore...
Do I really need the /s extension?
Cough, cough. Love the responses.
