Having exclaimed that WikiLeaks is “a non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors like Russia,” laying the blame for every embarrassing leak at Moscow’s footsteps, the FBI and CIA have admitted that they are searching for an “insider” (not a Russian) who exposed thousands of top-secret documents that described CIA tools used to penetrate smartphones, smart televisions and computer systems.

As CBS News reports,  a manhunt is underway for a traitor inside the Central Intelligence Agency.

Sources familiar with the investigation say it is looking for an insider — either a CIA employee or contractor — who had physical access to the material. The agency has not said publicly when the material was taken or how it was stolen.

Much of the material was classified and stored in a highly secure section of the intelligence agency, but sources say hundreds of people would have had access to the material. Investigators are going through those names.

The trove was published in March by the anti-secrecy organization WikiLeaks.

In his first public comments as director of the CIA just last week, Mike Pompeo railed against WikiLeaks and its founder Julian Assange.

“It is time to call out WikiLeaks for what it really is: A non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors like Russia,” he said.

WikiLeaks has said it obtained the CIA information from former contractors who worked for U.S. intelligence. The CIA has not commented on the authenticity of the WikiLeaks disclosures or on the status of the investigation.

It seems once again that WikiLeaks’ facts were ‘facts’ and CIA/FBI ‘facts’ were ‘fake’.

    The CIA is who needs to be exposed for the criminals they are. They are the ones who handle all the covert operations that have caused wars and other problems in the middle east and elsewhere.
    Like with the Clinton e-mail leaks, the source is irrelevant, it’s the content of the leak that is important to us. These leaks expose them for their corruption and lawlessness.
    These cretins are busy trying to figure out who tattled on them and they are ignoring the fact that they have been exposed for violating our rights and our privacy.
    Apparently they haven’t learned anything.
