Congressman Going to Probe Wikileaks

An no those aren’t my words. Either way congressman King of New York is a little upset that Wikileaks posted 500,000 intercepted pager messages obtained during 9/11. He’s so upset that he’s launched an investigation into Wikileaks. From his lips to our ears:

“It does raise security issues, and we will look into it in Washington,” King (R-Seaford), the ranking Republican on the House Committee on Homeland Security, said Friday.

Correct me if I’m wrong but in a open and transparent government such as our is supposed to be shouldn’t this information have been provided by the government freely? I’m going to go ahead and write my standard disclaimer that I don’t believe there is any grand conspiracy behind the 9/11 attacks. What I do believe is the government has used that event to shit all over our civil rights and allow themselves to play the “classified” card on everything.

But I think I have an idea how those messages were intercepted:

“All pager traffic is non-encrypted,” said Phil Lieberman, president of Lieberman Software Corp. of Los Angeles. “The fact that people are intercepting the traffic is not surprising.”

Poor security, it’s always biting people in the ass. By you might want to pay Lieberman since he found your hole.

  1. The pager messages are covered under existing FCC regulations that allow the freee interception of radio communication, but not its disclosure without the permission of the owner. There is nothing classified about the pager messages and the government as well as law enforcement can get these messages under court order.

    The big surprise to many people was the fact that “people” were intercepting and storing this information aside from the pager companies and possiblly the government.

    Encryption has always been available for pager users, but few are willing to pay for the extra security.

  2. You can go to the bank on the fact that the end is very nigh for 911 liars, stalkers, slanderers.

    As for those who say that it’s not appropriate to release personal messages that were texted on 911…. People deserve the truth… What is not right [much less appropriate] is the continual lies and slander that has gone on for years.

    Karma can be a b!tch. Justice is coming and those who deserve their “just desserts” will be finally getting them.
