The Sickening Child Porn Crisis Infecting U.S. Government Agencies

Obama's pedophiles and satanic deviants  continue to drag America slowing, painfully down into the toilet of history; FBI needs to once again take a hard look at the U.S. Embassy Jakarta and "diplomats" stationed there - one of which is linked to former Ambassador Ralph Boyce and responsible for the transport of John Mark Karr from Thailand

At least 22 current local, state, and federal employees have been convicted of horrific crimes against children. Even worse: There are likely many more of these monsters.


Daniel Rosen, a senior State Department official arrested last month for soliciting sex online with a minor, was reportedly arrested again Sunday night in Washington, D.C., and charged with an earlier crime of voyeurism after police searched his cellphone. And he is only the latest in a long string of government employees to have been accused of crimes against children.


Public records and reports reviewed by The Daily Beast show that at least 22 current and former local, state, and federal employees have been convicted of crimes ranging from distributing child pornography to conscience-shocking acts of violence against infants. The crimes have occurred over the past decade, with many of the cases coming in the past four years. Experts say the numbers are likely far higher and may not be thoroughly documented by law enforcement agencies across the United States.


There is a veritable rogues gallery of sexual predators from the ranks of local law enforcement to the diplomatic corps. 

Their crimes usually involve some online component, either distributing graphic images or using text messaging and chat rooms to lure victims.

At the State Department, where Rosen worked, a senior technology project manager was arrested in 2012 and accused of 10 counts of possessing child pornography. The same year, a former special agent with the Bureau of Diplomatic Security was sentenced to seven years in prison for possession of child porn, including some 30,000 images contained on computer equipment in his house. And in 2008, a Foreign Service Officer was sentenced to 20 years in prison for possession of child pornography and admitted to videotaping his sexual encounters with girls while working abroad as a consular officer.


At the CIA, the former station chief in Algeria was sentenced to more than five years in federal prison for drugging and raping a Muslim woman and for illegally possessing a firearm while under the influence of cocaine. 

Authorities also discovered child pornography on his laptop computer, though no charges were filed for that offence. 




At the Homeland Security Department, six now ex-employees are doing time for crimes including possession of child pornography, soliciting sex with minors, and human sex-trafficking. And in 2011, a U.S. Army lawyer and West Point graduate pleaded guilty to “forcible sodomy with an infant” and making and distributing violent images of child abuse.


Crimes against children aren’t limited by government agency or the profession of the offenders, who hail from the military, local law enforcement, and federal departments. “Child porn within our government agencies has reached crisis level,” Lori Handrahan, a researcher of child sex abuse cases, wrote in a recent blog post. Handrahan, who has documented other cases in and out of government, says large numbers of men are downloading child pornography frequently from their work computers.


Precisely how many government employees have been convicted on child pornography charges is difficult to assess because official reports don’t distinguish by employment category. And many of the most frequently cited government reports on child sexual crime rates haven’t been recently updated.

But federal statistics show a rising trend in child pornography and exploitation cases. 


Between 2007 and 2012, more than 11,447 defendants were convicted in federal courts for offenses related the sexual exploitation of a minor, according to a Justice Department report. “These crimes have ranged from production of obscene visual depictions of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct to receipt, distribution, possession, and/or production of child pornography to the direct physical, sexual abuse of a minor.”


In 2010, the Justice Department released the first-ever National Strategy for Child Exploitation Prevention and Interdiction, which aimed to assess the dangers from child pornography, online enticement, and other crimes against children. It found that between 2005 and 2009, there was a 432 percent increase in child pornography movies and files submitted to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, which attempts to identify victims.


“Although documenting the precise quantity of child pornography is difficult, it is evident that technological advances have contributed significantly to the overall increase in the child pornography threat,” the strategy report found. From 2005 through 2009, it said, U.S. Attorneys prosecuted 8,352 child pornography cases, “and in most instances, the offenders used digital technologies and the Internet to produce, view, store, advertise, or distribute child pornography.”

The label “pornography” arguably doesn’t capture the depravity of some of the crimes committed against children. In 2012, a Ganby, Connecticut, police captain was sentenced to 10 years in prison for possessing and trading videos that “horrifically depicted children being sexually abused by adults,” according to a U.S. prosecutor. Among the images the former cop sought from fellow traders were those of babies being bound and tortured, officials said.

Also in 2014, the former acting director of cyber security at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services was convicted for his participation in a child porn ring that included images so violent and disturbing that even veteran investigators said they were shocked by what they saw. A federal prosecutor said the employee used his technical expertise to navigate anonymous computer networks frequented by child porn peddlers.

Cases of violent child abuse in the United States have mirrored recent revelations from an organized abuse ring in the United Kingdom featuring senior members of the British government. Shocking cases of crimes against children went unreported or covered up for decades. As The Daily Beast reported Friday, the potential key witness in the ring, who was himself allegedly a victim as a schoolboy, fled Britain and now lives in the United States. 


John Mark Karr was a child procurer for U.S. State Department employees at the U.S. Embassy Bankok. He was flown out of the country by Embassy staff who rightfully feared exposure after Thai authorities began closing in on Karr for prosecution. The Jon Benet Ramsey story was completely contrived by the State Department in order to get Karr immediately out of the country and out of the clutches of the Thai police. He was flown Business Class on a champagne flight into the U.S.  The 5th Estate is in the process of identifying the Embassy official that arranged Karr's flight out of Thailand, and when it is confirmed will publish a full report identifying the individual, who was working at the time for then U.S. Ambassador to Thailand Ralph Boyce

The international dimensions of child pornography and violence haven’t escaped the FBI, which last week helped to take down an alleged porn kingpin in South Africa. The accused was reportedly arrested at his home in Grahamstown, near the country’s southern coast, and had 16 hard drives, a laptop, and video and still cameras. FBI agents are said to have discovered the network after seven people were arrested in the United States using Web sites designed to coax children into performing sexual acts while surreptitiously being videotaped.

The FBI is seeking to extradite the man because most of the victims were in the United States.

Britain's Shame: Evidence Mounts Of Child Abuse Cover-Up

LONDON (AP) — 

A toxic mix of misuse of power and official silence has become Britain's shame as the country faces up to a growing web of evidence that the abuse of vulnerable children by powerful men was covered up for decades.


Vile, perverted slob Cyril Smith was protected 
by the other members of the group
Several lawmakers said Tuesday that former detectives and intelligence officers should be guaranteed protection from prosecution if they speak out about child abuse by senior police, politicians or other prominent people.

"I would just very much hope the police now can investigate this very thoroughly without fear or favor, get to the bottom of the truth," Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg said after the BBC aired new claims of a cover-up of pedophile behavior three decades ago. "I would urge anyone who has any information that can cast any light on what happened way back then to come forward and co-operate with the police."


Many Britons have felt a creeping horror over the last few years as allegations of child abuse have piled up.


"And then I grabbed his firm little bum…" - Just how 
"deep" does Clegg's involvement go?
There was the revelation that the late children's entertainer Jimmy Savile had abused children in hospitals, children's homes and TV studios for decades. 

Separately, police announced they were investigating claims of a pedophile ring involving powerful politicians. 

And gangs of men in several regional towns were convicted of sexually exploiting teenage girls.




The latest allegations came Monday, when the BBC's "Newsnight" program reported that an ex-detective had told it that a lawmaker, Cyril Smith, was arrested in the early 1980s as part of an investigation into child-sex parties, but was released hours later.

He said officers were ordered to hand over notebooks and video footage from their undercover operation, and were told they would be violating the Official Secrets Act if they revealed what had happened.

The BBC did not identify the former detective because of the legal threat hanging over him.



After Smith died in 2010, prosecutors revealed that in 1970 eight men had accused the Liberal lawmaker of abusing them as teens. The prosecutors said Smith was never charged, but should have been.

Labour Party lawmaker Tom Watson, who has campaigned to expose sexual abuse by politicians, said former police officers and civil servants with information have a duty to come forward, and should be protected from prosecution.




Legislator Simon Danczuk, who represents the Rochdale constituency that Smith once held, also said whistleblowers "should be given the freedom to speak out" without fear of prosecution.

A dam of official silence around child abuse in Britain began to break after the 2011 death of Savile allowed his long-silent victims to come forward.




Since then, several once-prominent entertainers, including TV host Rolf Harris and former glam rock star Gary Glitter, have been convicted and police have reopened dormant abuse inquiries.


Sir Peter Morrison was also part of the 
child-abuse ring
But police have been accused of having been part of the problem by suppressing allegations against well-connected pedophiles. On Monday, Britain's independent police watchdog said it was looking into allegations that Scotland Yard covered up historic allegations of child abuse from the 1970s to the 2000s.

Several recent cases in which gangs of men have been convicted of sexually exploiting girls in the care of local authorities have also exposed failures by police and social services.

In those cases, the perpetrators were mainly of South Asian origin, and their trials heightened racial tensions in northern towns such as Rochdale and Rotherham.


But Home Secretary Theresa May, Britain's top law-and-order official, has warned that abuse revelations will touch the whole country, and all sections of society.

May has ordered a public inquiry into how public agencies — including government bodies, police, hospitals, churches and the BBC — handled child-abuse allegations.

The abuse claims reach so deeply into the upper echelons of British society that finding a figure to head the inquiry has been problematic. Two chairwomen were appointed and then rejected because of their connections to the establishment. Last month a judge from New Zealand, Lowell Goddard, was selected to lead the probe.




"We already know the trail will lead into our schools and hospitals, our churches, our youth clubs and many other institutions that should have been places of safety but instead became the setting for the most appalling abuse," May wrote in the Daily Telegraph last week.

May said that many Britons did not yet appreciate "the true scale" of past abuse.

"What we have seen so far is only the tip of the iceberg," she wrote.

​White House Exempts Itself From FOIA Requests

Emperor Obama and his White House criminals exempt from the law  

RT
03/17/2015

Notwithstanding claims of being the most transparent administration ever, the White House now says that an executive branch office is exempt from United States Freedom of Information Act requests effective immediately.


"Big Daddy" Idi Amin Obama 
As of Tuesday, the Office of Administration will no longer have to heed FOIA requests — the likes of which had for decades helped explain the inner workings of White House functions — according to a notice published in the Federal Register this week.

Although the White House is largely exempt from having to answer FOIA requests, the Office of Administration has until now been among the few exceptions concerning the commander-in-chief. In the final rule published on Tuesday morning, however, the deputy assistant to President Barack Obama writes that the office’s parent agency, the Executive Office of the President, “is removing regulations from the Code of Federal Regulations related to the status of records created and maintained by the Executive Office.” According to the White House’s reasoning, the sole function of the Office of Administration is to advise and assist the president and therefore it’s not covered under the Freedom of Information Act or the Privacy Act of 1974.


Gregory Korte, a USA Today reporter who broke the story on Monday evening, wrote that the Office of Administration had answered FOIA requests for 30 years.

“Until the Obama administration, watchdog groups on the left and the right used records from the office to shed light on how the White House works,” Korte wrote.


Under the last Bush administration, however, the watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, CREW, filed a suit with the agency which opened the door to a lengthy legal battle.

An appeals court said six years ago that the Office of Administration is not an “agency” as defined by FOIA since it “performs only operational and administrative tasks in support of the president and his staff,” and is therefore exempt. However, the decision was not made official until entered in the Federal Register this week with little notice.


“This action is being taken in order to align Office of Administration policy with well-settled legal interpretations,” Beth Jones, deputy assistant to the president, explained in the Register.

But critics have been quick to call out the Obama administration for the peculiar timing of the announcement. Not only does the Register notice come six years after an appeals court settled the FOIA issue, but also in the middle of “Sunshine Week,” in which news groups are strongly advocating government transparency.

"The irony of this being Sunshine Week is not lost on me," Anne Weismann of CREW told USA Today. "It is completely out of step with the president's supposed commitment to transparency.”


Speaking to The Hill, a White House official defended this week’s announcement, saying, “This federal register notice does not change any aspect of the administration’s FOIA policy. It simply removes outdated regulations that no longer apply to the Office of Administration and haven’t applied since the Bush Administration."

“Generally speaking, the administration has gone to great lengths to release more information on the front end so that individuals do not have to file a FOIA to get access to government data and other information,” the official added.


Even before news of the Federal Register notice caught wind this week, reporters were calling that claim into question. In a Washington Post article concerning the Obama administration’s transparency record with regards to Sunshine Week published on Monday, reporter Jason Ross Arnod wrote that President Obama’s pledge to run the “most transparent” administration in US history has fallen short, according to critics, evidenced through the use of secret laws, evoking state secrets privilege and prosecuting whistleblowers, among other tactics.

During a Tuesday afternoon briefing, White House press secretary Josh Earnest described the notice as “a matter of just cleaning up the records that are on the books.”




“It has no impact at all on the policy that we have maintained since the beginning to comply with the Freedom of Information Act when it’s appropriate,” Earnest said. “It also has no bearing on the Office of Administration and the role that they do play in ensuring that the administration is the most transparent administration in history.”

Meanwhile, White House correspondence can still be obtained by the American public, but only through filing requests under the Presidential Records Act — and not until five years after an administration has run its course.
