The long-awaited book by Sharyl Attkisson the investigative reporter who quit her job at CBS news because they tried to stop her from investigating stories that might hurt the Obama administration hits the bookshelves next week on Election Day. Details of are already being released via reviews and news items.
One item in Sharyl Attkisson’s book “Stonewalled: My Fight for Truth Against the Forces of Obstruction, Intimidation, and Harassment in Obama’s Washington,” reveals how the Obama Administration spied on her via a “government-related entity” that also planted classified documents on her computer in an attempt to have one of her sources or Ms Attkisson herself arrested.
The NY Post reveals that her book Ms Attkisson says a source who arranged to have her laptop checked for spyware in 2013 was “shocked” and “flabbergasted” at what the analysis revealed.
“This is outrageous. Worse than anything Nixon ever did. I wouldn’t have believed something like this could happen in the United States of America,” Attkisson quotes the source saying.
She speculates that the motive was to lay the groundwork for possible charges against her or her sources.
Attkisson says the source, who’s “connected to government three-letter agencies,” told her the computer was hacked into by “a sophisticated entity that used commercial, nonattributable spyware that’s proprietary to a government agency: either the CIA, FBI, the Defense Intelligence Agency or the National Security Agency.”
The breach was accomplished through an “otherwise innocuous e-mail” that Attkisson says she got in February 2012, then twice “redone” and “refreshed” through a satellite hookup and a Wi-Fi connection at a Ritz-Carlton hotel.
The spyware included programs that Attkisson says monitored her every keystroke and gave the snoops access to all her e-mails and the passwords to her financial accounts.
“The intruders discovered my Skype account handle, stole the password, activated the audio, and made heavy use of it, presumably as a listening tool,” she wrote in “Stonewalled: My Fight for Truth Against the Forces of Obstruction, Intimidation, and Harassment in Obama’s Washington.”
This is outrageous. Worse than anything Nixon ever did.
Attkisson says her source — identified only as “Number One” — told her the spying was most likely not court-authorized because it went on far longer than most legal taps.
The source also reported to Attkisson the government planted three classified documents that were “buried deep in your operating system. In a place that, unless
you’re a some kind of computer whiz specialist, you wouldn’t even know
“They probably planted them to be able to accuse you of having classified documents if they ever needed to do that at some point,” Number One added.
Next week when the book is officially published look for Sharyl Attkisson to reveal more roadblocks to the truth placed by the mainstream media and the “most transparent” administration in history, the Obama administration
