Marcy Wheeler, blogging under the pseudonym “emptywheel” at, discusses the 44 thousand emails the hacker group “Anonymous” procured from private security firm HB Gary Federal, in retaliation for being “outed;” the three security firms (HB Gary, Palantir, and Berico Technologies) that submitted proposals (indirectly) to Bank of America for solving their WikiLeaks problem through a disinformation and smear campaign against WikiLeaks supporters like Glenn Greenwald and David House; how the Department of Justice referred BofA to law firm Hunton & Williams – which then solicited the security firms’ bid and gave BofA plausible deniability; the same three security firms’ work with the Chamber of Commerce to infiltrate and discredit opposition groups including unions; why we should be suspicious of security companies that work as defense contractors and for corporations in the private sector; and how the CIA deals with employees who torture: promotion!
