Snowden: WikiLeaks Proved Obama Administration Paid To Keep Smartphones Hackable
NSA whistleblower reveals CIA leaks biggest bombshell
Edward Snowden has revealed that the biggest headline behind the CIA files leaked by WikiLeaks should be that the Obama Administration not only knew about the vulnerabilities of the public's personal devices, but they funded an operation to manipulate those weaknesses and keep iPhone and Android smartphones "hackable".
The former National Security Agency contractor turned whistleblower has reportedly been sifting through the 8,761 classified documents released to the public by WikiLeaks on Tuesday and described the actions of the CIA and US Government as "reckless beyond words".
Snowden has also confirmed that he believes that the files released are genuine and that the most worrying part is the level of spying exposed, saying that they “show iOS/Android are what got hacked – a much bigger problem.”
The Washington Examiner reports:
Snowden replied to this tweet with a “PSA,” saying that it “incorrectly implies CIA hacked these apps / encryption.”
Instead, Snowden says the Vault7 documents show that iOS and Android smartphones got hacked, which he said is a “much bigger problem.”
In a separate tweet, Snowden said he is still parsing through the documents, many of which include long strings of code. But from what he’s seen so far, Snowden said that what WikiLeaks “has here is genuinely a big deal. Looks authentic.”
This does seem to explain Trump's wiretapping issue as Obama has been in charge for 8 years would have had full knowledge of such operations taking place.
The evidence should now give Donald Trump even more weight in his pursuit of criminal charges against his predecessor.
Critical to investigate if, and for how long, CIA permitted the most popular US smartphones to remain vulnerable after learning of breach. https://t.co/Noj8qStoDT— Edward Snowden (@Snowden) March 9, 2017
Someone needs to be held accountable for the actions of the US Government, and now as pressure mounts with allegations of wiretapping and illegal spying, it is looking more and more like Barack Obama could actually go to prison.
He has been shielded from many a crisis by his own Justice Department and now that is all gone.
It is rumored that he has bought property in Dubai where they do not extradite. He might want to head out now. This can only get worse. We have just started looking at the leaked CIA documents….
Something that is becoming increasingly obvious to the people now is the fact that Obama LIED.
