BREAKING : Australia Spied On Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, Leaked Edward Snowden Documents Reveal

Australia government, ASIS plots to destabilize Indonesia exposed by American hero Edward Snowden; documents list 'who's who' of Indonesian government

By  Michael Brissenden

Australian intelligence tried to listen in to Indonesian president Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono's mobile phone, material leaked by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden reveals.
ASIS, NSA spied on Indonesian President Yudhoyono
Documents obtained by the ABC and Guardian Australia, from material leaked by the former contractor at the US National Security Agency, show Australian intelligence attempted to listen in to Mr Yudhoyono's telephone conversations on at least one occasion and tracked activity on his mobile phone for 15 days in August 2009.

The top-secret documents are from Australia's electronic intelligence agency, the Defence Signals Directorate (now called the Australian Signals Directorate), and show for the first time how far Australian spying on Indonesia has reached.

The DSD motto stamped on the bottom of each page reads: "Reveal their secrets – protect our own."

The documents show that Australian intelligence actively sought a long-term strategy to continue to monitor the president's mobile phone activity.
Australian government and it's ASIS/NSA spies have now committed an irrevocable act of espionage against Indonesia

The surveillance targets also included senior figures in his inner circle and even the president's wife Kristiani Herawati (also known as Ani Yudhoyono).

Also on the list of targets is the vice president Boediono, the former vice president Yussuf Kalla, the foreign affairs spokesman, the security minister, and the information minister. 

Mr Yudhoyono's spokesman Teuku Faizasyah has responded to the revelations, saying: "The Australian Government needs to clarify this news, to avoid further damage ... [but] the damage has been done."

Asked about the spying in Question Time today, Prime Minister Tony Abbott said: "First of all, all governments gather information and all governments know that every other government gathers information... the Australian government never comments on specific intelligence matters. This has been the long tradition of governments of both political persuasions and I don't intend to change that today."

One page in the documentation lists the names and the 3G handsets the surveillance targets were using at the time.

A number of the people on the list are lining up as potential candidates for the presidential election to replace Mr Yudhoyono next year.

The documents are titled "3G impact and update" and appear to chart the attempts by Australian intelligence to keep pace with the rollout of 3G technology in Indonesia and across South-East Asia.

A number of intercept options are listed and a recommendation is made to choose one of them and to apply it to a target – in this case the Indonesian leadership.

The document shows how DSD monitored the call activity on Mr Yudhoyono's Nokia handset for 15 days in August 2009.

One page is titled "Indonesian President voice events" and provides what is called a CDR view. CDR are call data records; it can monitor who is called and who is calling but not necessarily what was said.

Another page shows that on at least one occasion Australian intelligence did attempt to listen in to one of Mr Yudhoyono's conversations.

But according to the notes on the bottom of the page, the call was less than one minute long and therefore did not last long enough to be successfully tapped.

WAYNE MADSEN : Naval War College’s Own ‘NSA’ Defends The Other NSA

Psycho wanna-be spook John Schindler proxy for NSA attacks in ludicrous attempt to discredit veteran investigative journalist Wayne Madsen as war on legitimate journalists in U.S. heats up yet again: Once a professional institution, Naval War College now infested with illiterate propagandist shitbags ala Schindler and his crew of sycophantic Twitter twats who have seats awaiting them and their bosses/enablers at the New Hague War Crimes Trials

By Wayne Madsen

Once upon a time, before the age of Twitter and the rise of faux journalists on 24-hour cable television news networks, the National Security Agency would respond to exposés of its oftentimes-illegal surveillance operations with no response. The Public Affairs Office at NSA headquarters had a boilerplate reply to all press inquiries: “No comment,” which, on a rare day, might change to “we cannot either confirm or deny the story.”
American hero Edward Snowden
All that has changed in the wake of the disclosures by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden of some of NSA’s most closely held classified operations. No longer content to ignore press reports about its activities, the NSA, which has refined the concept of “offensive information warfare” into actual practice, relies on a cadre of three professors within the U.S. Naval War College’s National Security Affairs department, also called “NSA,” to carry the signal intelligence agency’s water in launching attacks on critics of NSA and journalists who write about the agency. 
U.S. traitor, NSA tool John Schindler
The favorite tool for this NSA media “war room” operation on the banks of Rhode Island’s Narragansett Bay is Twitter. Whether the target is journalist Glenn Greenwald, this editor, Representative Justin Amash (R-MI), former Vice President Al Gore, and the handful of NSA whistleblowers who have come forward, including Snowden, the War College’s “NSA” troika of professors—former National Security Agency officer John Schindler and his two sycophantic assistants, Tom Nichols and Stephen Knott—enlist the aid of a committed group of Twitter “followers” to launch vicious attacks against any and all comers. Their followers range from Charles Johnson of the peculiar website “Little Green Footballs,” who is a washed up former band member for the group “Chicago,” to former Tory member of the British Parliament Louise Mensch, whose only claim to fame is resigning amid the Rupert Murdoch phone tapping scandal. 
NSA fascist dirtbag, traitor and Schindler enabler Keith Alexander
The NSA2 troika in Newport, Rhode Island can also rely on a few polemicists who masquerade as journalists. Chief among them is Michael C. Moynihan, a writer for The Daily Beast and the Jewish Tablet website, who once worked for a neo-conservative group in Stockholm called Timbro and served on the editorial board of a Swedish magazine called “Neo,” as in “neo-con.” Timbro has been associated with the activities of Karl Rove and Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt. Moynihan’s libelous screeds, some of which have been directed against this editor, are complemented by those of Joshua Foust, who claims to be a national security reporter, but who has collected pay checks from a Defense Intelligence Agency contractor. The Newport troika and their media allies can always be assured of the constant support of the website Business The site was started by DoubleClick founder Kevin Ryan, who also happens to serve on the board of the Nazi collaborator George Soros-financed Human Rights Watch, is close to outgoing New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, and is a member of the always-suspect Council on Foreign Relations.
Schindler, Alexander and their NSA Christian fundamentalist psychos actively seek WWIII, believing they and their followers will be vacuumed up by "God" following an Armageddon they seek to start alongside Netanyahu in the Middle East
As acerbic and vicious as these pro-NSA “wannabe” journalists can be, they do not hold a torch to the caustic and defamatory Twitter feed that ushers forth from Schindler, whose media appearances on CNN, CNBC, and MS-NBC skyrocketed in the wake of the Snowden revelations and media commentary on them, claims to have been an NSA intelligence and counter-intelligence officer and a consultant for the FBI. In reality, his most significant position at NSA appears to have been the “Command Historian” for the Naval Security Group Command, the Navy component of NSA’s military branch, the Central Security Service. Schindler also claims Babelfish-like fluency in no less than 11 languages, including German, Serbo-Croatian, French, Italian, Spanish, Russian, Polish, Hungarian, Slovenian, Ukrainian, Albanian, and Arabic. 
NSA CNN propagandist shills will be held accountable for lies
Schindler’s leadership role as chief NSA defender and inquisitor at the Naval War College appears to have the support of college president, Rear Admiral Ted Carter, who assumed command of the Navy institution this past summer. The Naval War College’s own official Twitter feeds often advertise Schindler’s latest screeds against NSA critics and whistleblowers. Schindler claims that his Twitter postings, postings on his blog 20Committee, and media comments are his own opinion. However, one homespun parody of Schindler’s blog, xxtwitterwarcommittee, takes Schindler and his fellow troika to task for violating the Hatch Act, a federal law that prohibits political activities by federal employees using government facilities on government time. The proprietor of the parody site suggests that an audit be carried out to match Schindler’s media appearances and Twitter activity to Newport base access and employee time card entries. 
Schindler's Nazi hero Julius Streicher
Schindler’s ethnic slurs against Roman Catholics of French descent have earned him other media criticism as well as seen in this article by the Justice Integrity Project in Washington, DC.

A typical Schindler attack is found in the following libel hurled at this editor found on the 20Committee blog. The attack likens the editor to convicted Nazi war criminal, propagandist, and curator of Europe’s largest collection of pornography, Julius Streicher.

“Above all, disregard Wayne Madsen, who did serve as a Navy cryptology officer some years ago, but who has left earth orbit altogether and espouses a conspiratorial worldview that would make Julius Streicher blush.” 
Those who run the Nuremberg facility, where the Nazi war crimes trials took place, would take great exception to this editor, hand on the dock where the Hazi leadership sat, being likened to Julius Streicher. But with neocons, like Nazis, anything is fair game

What is particularly loathsome about Schindler’s vicious libel is that in 2006 this editor rolled out his German-language book, Moralischer Bankrott, which deals, in part, with the war crimes of the Bush-Cheney administration, in the very same building in Nuremberg where Streicher and his fellow Nazis were convicted. The event was attended by the German media and received accolades from German jurists, as well as politicians from the Social Democratic Party and Free Democratic Party.
It is abundantly obvious that the Naval War College’s role in providing media response services for the National Security Agency is no mere coincidence. 
The war college, like other military activities, is expected to seek out its own non-funded revenue source and the intelligence budget is second only to the defense budget in doling out funds to national security “welfare” recipients.

The Naval War College’s National Security Affairs department has engaged in a number of non-academic “security” and intelligence projects, including providing support, along with the US Southern Command and U.S. embassy in Kingston (where the Special Collection Service maintains a surveillance post) to the 2011 Fifth Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Security and Strategy Conference held in Moneague, Jamaica. Present were national security and military personnel from Jamaica, Belize; Dominican Republic; Guyana; Trinidad & Tobago; Barbados; St. Vincent; St. Kitts; Dominica; Barbuda (oddly, the sister island of the twin island country, Antigua, was omitted); U.S. Virgin Islands; and the Bahamas. 
WMR has sent a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to the Naval War College requesting all documents on all contacts between the war college’s National Security Affairs department and faculty and the National Security Agency. The effort has not been problem-free. The facsimile number for the FOIA coordinator listed on the Naval War College website was inoperative. The war college informed us that the fax machine had broken and was never replaced. An alternate fax number in the war college’s legal office was also inoperative. The FOIA request has been sent by Certified Mail. The 2012 FOIA report submitted by the Naval War College reported the sum total of all FOIA requests to the college for the year 2012: the whopping number of 6. We don’t expect our FOIA request to be lost in the paper shuffle.

‘Immense Mystery’ As Sea Stars Being Wiped Out Along West Coast, Could Be Gone For Generations

There is no mystery to this; next to go will be the abalone, crab and urchin populations; bewildering disease is spreading and “no idea what’s causing it, or how to stop it” — Timelapse shows all legs lost in 7 hours (VIDEOS)


Santa Cruz Sentinel, Nov. 16, 2013: [...] 

The stars lose their legs and, essentially, disintegrate into blobs. Researchers have no idea what’s causing it, or how to stop it. The disease, whatever it is, has wiped out sea stars from the local shoreline, with even the pools at Natural Bridges State Beach now empty of stars. Similar die-offs have occurred before, but never this widespread and always during warm-water cycles [...]

Pacific Starfish, Half Moon Bay California
It is afflicting sea stars from Southern California to Alaska, and [...] the Pacific Ocean being in a cold-water cycle. “Those are two very bewildering facts,” said Pete Raimondi, who heads UC Santa Cruz’s Ecology and Evolutionary Biology lab. “[...] what we really don’t understand is how [they get infected],” Raimondi said. [...] the disease [...] is now showing up in subtidal zones. [...]

CBS News, Nov. 12, 2013:  

Legacy of Fukushima:  Another dead ocean
What’s wiping out the starfish in California? [...] Scientists on the West Coast are at a loss to explain what’s killing sea stars, also known as starfish. In some places, 95 percent of the starfish population has died. Marine biologist Pete Raimondi showed CBS News the tide pools along California’s Monterey Bay. Thousands of bright sea stars usually line these shores. In less than two months, they’ve vanished. Raimondi said the mystery of what is happening to the sea stars is “immense.” “I mean, that’s probably, from a scientific point of view, one of the most intriguing things,” he said. “We have no obvious culprit.” [...] The disease is more widespread than ever, stretching from Alaska to Southern California. [...] “We’ve never seen it like this, never,” Raimondi said. [...] Scientists say they don’t know how much worse the die off will get, and that it could be generations before these shores are once again painted purple and orange.

Americans Frustrated With Corporate - Controlled U.S. Media

Then stop watching it; Americans need to tune out Obama/CIA mouthpieces


Americans are frustrated with the mainstream media in the United States which is controlled by big corporations, a political commentator in New York says. 
"Mainstream media" scum will burn for their crimes
“Clearly there’s been a major shift in the media in the United States, fewer companies in control, less diverse coverage in many respects, more focus on headline celebrities, personalities and partisan issues than in depth features or efforts to really explain the world to the public,” said Danny Schechter, an editor of

“There’s also a tremendous push-back to the media. Right now more people are getting news from online sources than traditional sources, in fact newspapers are closing, magazines can’t figure out how to stay,” Schechter said.

“So you have a major shift taking place in the media and lot of it is fueled by dissatisfaction and frustration but people don’t know what they can do really to improve it because the corporate control is so thick over most media outlets that it’s hard to envision how the voice of the public can be heard,” he added. 
Protesters across the United States marched against the mainstream media on Saturday, saying the American people deserve “the truth”.

Demonstrators targeted the headquarters of media giants like ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, and FOX News, decrying their narrow coverage of world affairs.

The activist groups that organized the March Against Mainstream Media (MAMM) also challenged the mainstream media to cover the protests. 
The protests are “an attack against the credibility of the mainstream media in an attempt to steer its viewers away from its lies and towards alternative media sources,” the organizers said on their website.

“The United States Mainstream Media is the #1 tool used against the American people and we have to get the mass public to turn away from this garbage once and for all and actually start thinking for ourselves,” they added.

Americans' distrust in the media hit a new high last year as a Gallup poll last September revealed 60 percent of the American public had little or no trust in the mass media to report the news fully, accurately, and fairly.
