Files in Lawsuit Against CIA Stolen in ‘Disturbing’ University Break-In

from Common Dreams

University of Washington police are investigating a break-in at the school’s Center for Human Rights (UWCHR) after files from a lawsuit against the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) were stolen from the center’s offices.

A computer and hard drive containing information from a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed on October 2 were stolen from the offices of Dr. Angelina Godoy sometime between Thursday and Sunday, according to police. The UWCHR is investigating whether the CIA illegally withheld information about human rights violations carried out by U.S.-backed El Salvador army officers during the country’s civil war against leftist rebels in the 1980s.

Godoy said “about 90 percent of the information” was taken in the break-in. The UWCHR has backups of the stolen files, but Godoy said the concern now is how the data might be used against rights workers in El Salvador who are involved in the lawsuit.

“What worries us most is not what we have lost but what someone else may have gained,” she said in a statement. “The files include sensitive details of personal testimonies and pending investigations.”

The break-in had “suspicious and disturbing” elements, the Seattle Times reported—including that it coincided with a campus visit by CIA director John Brennan, who gave a speech at the university’s law school Friday.

With the New CISPA on the Docket, Wikileaks Pushes New “Pro-Palestinian” Cracka Hacker Bullshit

CRACKA

The new CISPA, CISA, is on the floor in the Senate right this minute and about to be voted on. It’s the new cyber security bill that promises to hand over control of collection all of your information and storing it to Big Business… it’s basically the definition of fascist surveillance state. This bill makes is so Big Business can collect your data, sell your data, analyze your data, predict your behavior based on that data, share it with Big Brother and even take steps to minimize the risk you pose to the New World Order of theirs all on their own with built in immunity for fucking your life up.

It’s the “gold standard” of the fascist control grid as Hillary Clinton might call it and it is EXTREMELY unpopular with the people of this country.

“The privacy-killing law CISA — which gives legal immunity to corporations when they share your private data with the U.S. government — is back on the Senate floor after Internet activists have successfully delayed it many times. This could be our last chance to stop it for good.”Boing Boing

We already got part of the new CISPA in the USA “Freedom” Act thanks to the “Edward Snowden” psyop and Glenn Greenwald helping manufacture a crisis they could use to pass it.

Now it’s Wikileaks’ turn I suppose.
