If you get your news exclusively from BuzzFeed, then today is the first day you've even heard of the Center for Medical Progresses's Planned Parenthood sting videos. Why? Because Planned Parenthood hired someone to try and prove the sting videos were faked in an attempt to discredit CMP. And that's what BuzzFeed reported: image1 First of all, are you sh***ing me?

    That’s “nonsense” and “utter baloney” according to the White House. White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest was questioned about the report during the White House Press briefing by Fox News reporter James Rosen. “It’s utter baloney,” Earnest replied flatly. The New York Post story by Edward Klein cites anonymous sources suggesting that Jarrett not only leaked the details of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email address, but pushed six separate State Department probes into her behavior. Klein also cited sources that Jarrett “put out word” to reporters that the White House would look on with favor if they “gave...

    If you want a truly anonymous life, then maybe it's time you learned about Tor, CSpace and ZRTP. These three technologies could help people hide their activities from the National Security Agency, according to NSA documents newly obtained from the archive of former contractor Edward Snowden by the German magazine Der Spiegel. The combination of Tor, CSpace and ZRTP (plus another anonymizing technology for good measure) results in levels of protection that the NSA deems "catastrophic" -- meaning the organization has "near-total loss/lack of insight to target communications," according to Der Spiegel. "Although the documents are around two years old,...

    Damning evidence has emerged of US President Barack Obama's dismissal of Israel's position in favor of supporting the position of Hamas and its allies during ceasefire talks. A "senior US official" leaked an audio recording of a telephone conversation between Obama and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to Channel One. In it the 35-minute conversation, which took place on Sunday, the US President appears downright hostile at points, and even cuts off Netanyahu in the middle of his protestations over a one-sided truce proposal which would have seen Hamas receive all its key demands, but that Israel ultimately rejected.

It is also significant because it’s coming from a foundation who thought they were giving money for a 501(c)3 to “strengthen democracy,” but instead awarded it to what appears to be an organization who engages in partisan politics. Winner was understandably upset after reading the initial column in the Observer, and told me, “We want citizens to be more engaged, but distributing this memo does not further those purposes....

The US State Department in February 2009 asked all US missions abroad to list all installations whose loss could critically affect US national security. The list includes pipelines, communication and transport hubs. Several UK sites are listed, including cable locations, satellite sites and BAE Systems plants. This is probably the most controversial document yet from the Wikileaks organisation.
