Profiling Project Seth Rich Report: ‘Death More Likely Committed By Hired Killer’ Than Botched Robbery; Possible Overlooked Surveillance Camera

A new report has been released by an independent, non-partisan group on the investigation into the death of DNC worker Seth Rich, who was murdered last July in DC. The investigation is still an open homicide case 10 months after he was murdered in the District’s Bloomingdale neighborhood.

Rich’s killer remains on the loose, and for months now a group comprised of forensic experts and George Washington University graduate students, called The Profiling Project, have been digging into the case.

The Profiling Project’s Jack Burkman and Kevin Doherty held a press conference Tuesday morning to announce the release of their initial report on the investigation, and saying there would be many more to come.

Jack Burkman is a GOP lobbyist, who put up $105,000 of his own money as a reward to help solve Rich’s murder, and is funding the Profiling Project.

Kevin Doherty is a former U.S. Marine and Special Agent/Criminal Investigator in the intelligence community.

A hired killer is a “possibility,” Doherty said at the press conference when asked about the report’s conclusion that Seth Rich’s death was more likely committed by a hired killer than from a robbery gone bad. “A proficient killer is what we think. The fact that the killer has gotten away with it for this period of time, and that it appears it was a very sanitized crime scene, certainly shows some level of proficiency in killing.”

One key piece of information included in the report is surveillance cameras discovered at the location of Seth Rich’s murder that may have been overlooked by D.C. police. “What we found is there actually is possibly another surveillance camera that may have been missed in the initial investigation, so we have turned that over to the police,” Profiling Project volunteer Kevin Zhang told WJLA.

“We’ve been in contact” with D.C. police, Doherty said. “We hope they have looked at it, we hope they had this already. But we were quite surprised when we came across it during our neighborhood canvass.”

Burkman spoke about the lack of co-operation from authorities and ongoing lawsuit to obtain evidence from the investigation. “No new evidence has been released on this case since October 16th, 2016. We filed a lawsuit to get them to release certain things. The judge has scheduled a hearing in this case, so we are hopeful that the mayor will put some pressure on the chief and they’ll do the right thing and turn over what we want.”

“What could possibly be the reason for not releasing a ballistic report to the public or to an organization like this. There is no reason. I don’t want to infer any bad motives, but when people won’t give you the ballistics report, they won’t give you the medical examiner’s report, they won’t even give you the medical examiner’s stated cause of death. At some point it becomes a circus,” Burkman said.

During the press conference, Burkman also revealed some new information not contained in the report. “I have one piece of evidence you may like,” Burkman said. “We do know the hospital, it was George Washington University hospital. I was approached about a week ago by a woman who is very afraid for her life. She is a federal contractor in the health arena. She’s actually conducting a bit of her own investigation trying to find out who the doctors were who worked on Seth Rich. But that’s a group who doesn’t want to talk. So we will be beginning to open an investigation there and to see what we can learn.”

Brad Bauman, the spokesperson for the Rich family, issued this response to the report Tuesday:

“The Rich family was not provided a copy of the preliminary report, never saw the report or was otherwise consulted in the preparation of the report. I received the report a half an hour before it was made public thus depriving myself, the family or the family’s lawyers any reasonable time (to) review it. As noted, by the report’s methodology, ‘The Profiling Project’ was given no special access to any materials, evidence or persons and due to case sensitivity, conducted only informal, limited interviews. Given that fact, the family hopes that the general public takes the findings at face value—valuable experience in research collection and report writing for students at George Washington University but in no way should take any findings contained within as new, credible or otherwise lending credence to conspiracy theories surround the circumstances of Seth’s death. We further hope that this doesn’t continue to impede the Metropolitan Police Department’s ability to find the killers and give folks who might have information to their arrest cover to stay silent.”

America’s “War on Drugs”: History Channel Reveals True Story for the First Time on Television

In Archive, CIA, Drugs, USA on June 19, 2017 at 9:28 AM

06/18/2017

Synopsis via TheIntercept:

Starting Sunday night and running through Wednesday the History Channel is showing a new four-part series called “America’s War on Drugs.” Not only is it an important contribution to recent American history, it’s also the first time U.S. television has ever told the core truth about one of the most important issues of the past fifty years.

That core truth is: The war on drugs has always been a pointless sham. For decades the federal government has engaged in a shifting series of alliances of convenience with some of the world’s largest drug cartels. So while the U.S. incarceration rate has quintupled since President Richard Nixon first declared the war on drugs in 1971, top narcotics dealers have simultaneously enjoyed protection at the highest levels of power in America.

Despite the fact the U.S. has no formal system of censorship, this monumental scandal has never before been presented in a comprehensive way in the medium where most Americans get their information: TV.

That’s why “America’s War on Drugs” is a genuine milestone.

Stone Meets Putin: The Interview 2 Years in the Making

In Archive, Putin on June 13, 2017 at 5:29 AM

06/12/2017

Over his career, Oscar-winning director Oliver Stone has interviewed controversial figures like Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro. For his latest documentary, the Showtime series “The Putin Interviews,” Stone was granted extensive access to the Russian president. Stone interviewed Putin more than a dozen times over two years. No topic was off limits. Prodded by Stone over the course of two years, Putin confronts a host of critical topics in candid detail, including his long-term grip on power, his personal relationships with Clinton, Bush, Obama and Trump, Edward Snowden’s asylum in Moscow, as well as allegations of election meddling and fostering turmoil in Syria.

PART 4

On “CBS This Morning” Monday, Stone said he first got to know Putin during production of his film about Edward Snowden, released in 2016, for which he interviewed the former NSA analyst in Moscow nine times. Stone also asked Putin about the Snowden affair and his point of view on it, “and one thing led to another.”

Stone said he was invited by Putin to conduct the interviews.

“I think he needed to be heard fairly because I’m not going to be an editor; I’m going to let him speak,” Stone said. “And his point of view is not heard; you don’t hear him in Russian in the West; you hear a dubbed voice, and sometimes a dubbed voice can be very harsh.”

Contractor Reality Winner Arrested for Leaking NSA Docs Assessing Russian Attempts to Hack US Voting Systems (w/ Updates)

THE LEAK

TheIntercept:

Russian military intelligence executed a cyberattack on at least one U.S. voting software supplier and sent spear-phishing emails to more than 100 local election officials just days before last November’s presidential election, according to a highly classified intelligence report obtained by The Intercept.

The top-secret National Security Agency document, which was provided anonymously to The Intercept and independently authenticated, analyzes intelligence very recently acquired by the agency about a months-long Russian intelligence cyber effort against elements of the U.S. election and voting infrastructure. The report, dated May 5, 2017, is the most detailed U.S. government account of Russian interference in the election that has yet come to light.

While the document provides a rare window into the NSA’s understanding of the mechanics of Russian hacking, it does not show the underlying “raw” intelligence on which the analysis is based. A U.S. intelligence officer who declined to be identified cautioned against drawing too big a conclusion from the document because a single analysis is not necessarily definitive.

The report indicates that Russian hacking may have penetrated further into U.S. voting systems than was previously understood. It states unequivocally in its summary statement that it was Russian military intelligence, specifically the Russian General Staff Main Intelligence Directorate, or GRU, that conducted the cyber attacks described in the document:

The NSA analysis does not draw conclusions about whether the interference had any effect on the election’s outcome and concedes that much remains unknown about the extent of the hackers’ accomplishments. However, the report raises the possibility that Russian hacking may have breached at least some elements of the voting system, with disconcertingly uncertain results.

The NSA and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence were both contacted for this article. Officials requested that we not publish or report on the top secret document and declined to comment on it. When informed that we intended to go ahead with this story, the NSA requested a number of redactions. The Intercept agreed to some of the redaction requests after determining that the disclosure of that material was not clearly in the public interest.

ISIS Ultimatum: ‘Bloodbath’ in France if Demands Not Met by President in 7 Days (Full Letter & Audio Message)

In Archive, France, ISIS, Terrorism on June 3, 2017 at 3:11 AM

LeakSource Note: The letter is dated May 29th, but it was not reported by news outlets until June 1st. The earliest tweet found containing original link to the pdf/mp3 is also June 1st. So the deadline is between June 4th-June 7th.

Translated summary via DailyStar:

06/01/2017

It states “French people have begun to taste the terror” and warns “what awaits you is even more destructive and more terrifying” including “car bombs, trucks rushed, improvised explosive devices”.

Promising that “all this will become your daily life until you are collapsed”, the eight page document lists eight demands the new President must follow to “in order to stop this bloodbath”.

Among them is “the immediate cessation of the bombing against ISIS” and “the withdrawal of all French troops of all countries of the Muslims”.

It also demands the “immediate sales of arms” to ISIS, “the release of all Muslims” arrested on terror offences”, and for “all Muslims to be free to leave France and live in the Islamic State”.

The group warns the country has seven days to respond, saying: “Oh the French people, think fast, think well and act quickly, before it is too late.

“If you do nothing, you will see very soon that we will destroy the French State, as it tries to destroy ISIS – otherwise known as Daesh.

“But the destruction of the French State will also by the destruction of the French people.

“You have no idea of what awaits you…”

The document, which has been sent to French news organisations as well as the authorities, also directs threats to the country’s police officers.

It warns: “French police, if you continue to obey your government blindly, in oppressing as well your people that the Muslims, be aware that your bullet-proof vests and your pistols do you not suffice in the face of our Kalashnikov and our seat belts of explosives.”

The telegram concludes: “Oh the French people, you have just to elect a new President supposed to represent you.

“The latter has 7 days to respond favourably to our requests by making a formal declaration.

“In the case of refusal, these next 5 years are likely to be the last that you will live.

“Because the next wave of attacks which will hit the France will be much more appalling than the previous ones. And this will be the last war that you will steer…”
