    (Washington, DC) — Judicial Watch today announced it received 756 pages of newly uncovered emails that were among the materials former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton tried to delete or destroy, several of which were classified and were transmitted over her unsecure, non-“state.gov” email system. Hillary Clinton repeatedly stated that the 55,000 pages of documents she turned over to the State Department in December 2014 included all of her work-related emails. In response to a court order in another Judicial Watch case, she declared under penalty of perjury in 2015 that she had “directed that all my emails on clintonemail.com...

    The mighty CIA has fallen victim to a major breach, with WikiLeaks revealing the true scope of the Agency’s ability for cyber-espionage. Its tools seem to be aimed at ordinary citizens – your phone, your car, your TV, even your fridge can become an instrument of surveillance in the hands of the CIA. How does the CIA use these tools, and why do they need them in the first place? And as WikiLeaks promises even more revelations, how is all of this going to shape the already tense relationship between new president and the intelligence community? A man who has...

    Full Measure News ^ | January 10th 2016 | Sharyl Attkisson
    An email hidden from public view for three years reveals a rescue attempt was interrupted. The military offered to deploy Special Forces to Benghazi during the assault, long before the attackers killed CIA contractors and former Navy Seals Glen Doherty and Ty Woods. Three and a half hours into the eight-hour long siege, the military's Chief of Staff Jeremy Bash emails top State Department officials: "we have identified the forces that could move to Benghazi. They are spinning up as we speak. They include a SOF [Special Operations Forces] element that was in Croatia."
  • Sources: Predator drone was over Benghazi consulate during last hours of attack

    10/20/2012 7:39:22 PM PDT · by chessplayer · 47 replies
    CBS News has been told that, hours after the attack began, an unmanned Predator drone was sent over the U.S. mission in Benghazi, and that the drone and other reconnaissance aircraft apparently observed the final hours of the protracted battle… But it was too late to help the Americans in Benghazi. The ambassador and three others were dead. Retired CIA officer Gary Berntsen believes help could have come much sooner. He commanded CIA counter-terrorism missions targeting Osama bin Laden and led the team that responded after bombings of the U.S. Embassy in East Africa. “You find a way to make...
  • Ex-Spy Is a Long Shot to Oust Schumer

    NY Times ^ | July 1, 2010 | DAVID M. HALBFINGER
    The last time Gary Berntsen went after such a formidable adversary in hostile territory, he was commanding a small band of fellow spies and commandos in pursuit of Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan after 9/11. After helping drive the Taliban from power, they tracked him to the mountains of Tora Bora, only to see him slip away. His current assignment could make that one look easy. Mr. Berntsen, a Long Island-bred C.I.A. operative who retired in 2005, decided earlier this year to try to serve his country in a new, and not exactly clandestine, way: by running for office. While...

    The American spy who persuaded Libya to renounce its weapons of mass destruction is to return to the Central Intelligence Agency, where he will direct an aggressive drive to recruit informants inside Iran to aid possible negotiations over Teheran's nuclear capability. Stephen Kappes, a former United States Marines officer who resigned from the CIA after a clash with its then director, Porter Goss, has been brought back from self-imposed exile in London by George W Bush. Iran will be top of his agenda. "He's a remarkable guy, a talented leader and among the finest officers of his generation," said Gary...

    A former senior CIA operative says the U.S. can easily destroy Iran’s nuclear facilities with bunker-busting bombs and other weapons. "We can dig those things out. We can destroy them," Gary Berntsen, who led the search for Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan in late 2001, told The Jerusalem Post. "We can take care of it in a couple of days with air strikes and they wouldn't be able to stop us. "It wouldn't be difficult to plan. There'd be some dangers but I think the United States can do it." Berntsen, who left the CIA last June after more than...

    Publication of “Jawbreaker” Excites Trolls ! A former “CIA Commander” – (that’s what Newsweek calls him ) – named Gary Berntsen has finally managed to secure CIA clearance for the publication of what looks to be an interesting book , entitled “Jawbreaker”. According to Newsweek ,Mr. Berntsen says Osama bin Laden was able to escape from the siege of Tora Bora in December,2001 because US Central Command would not allow more American troops to be deployed. He adds he was sure bin Laden was there,because sources he trusted had told him so ; and he disagrees with former CENTCOM commander...

    Former CIA Officer Sues to Publish Book Detailing Osama Bin Laden's EscapeBy Katherine Shrader Associated Press Writer Published: Jul 28, 2005 WASHINGTON (AP) - The CIA is squelching publication of a new book detailing events leading up to Osama bin Laden's escape from his Tora Bora mountain stronghold during the U.S.-led invasion of Afghanistan, says a former CIA officer who led much of the fighting. In a story he says he resigned from the agency to tell, Gary Berntsen recounts the attacks he coordinated at the peak of the fighting in eastern Afghanistan in late 2001, including how U.S. commanders...
