In times of universal deceit, telling
the truth is a revolutionary act.
         - George Orwell

Napoleon once observed that "history" is a set of lies agreed upon. In an era of ubiquitous fake news and information warfare, this has never been more true. The very concept of objective truth in history is fading out of our world. Pure propaganda and outright lies are passing into our history textbooks as unquestioned truth, condemning future generations to false views about historical reality. But the task of sifting through the lies and propaganda is overwhelming, limited by the ambition and time constraints of most observors. Only those who have dedicated their lives to sorting reality from falsehood are qualified to rewrite "consensus" history as a duty to humanity. The contributors to this site endeavor to do just that.

CIA Amassing Everyone's Biometric Data

       Fingerprints. Iris scans. Blood samples. Either at police stations, border crossings or human resource departments in major corporations, the all-too-personal data relating to our genetics is being collected at an alarming rate.  Reluctant travellers and corporate employees (not to mention criminals and those simply asking for a police background check) have been constantly reassured for years:  "Don't worry, the biometric data we're collecting on you won't leave our internal computer systems!"
       But now we learn what we've suspected all along:  NO, your personal biometric data IS being shared, and with one of the most sinister organizations in the world - the CIA.

As revealed in the recent Wikileaks Vault 7 release, software developed by the CIA called 'Expresslane' has been deployed across numerous federal agencies in the US and its allies to secretly collect the biometric data of everyone they can.  Ostensibly to "partner" with related agencies for "ease of intelligence sharing", the software is often installed in these government agencies and corporations as part of "routine software updates."

In fact, they are stealing information clandestinely, since government laws expressly forbid the sharing of biometric data.  The whole story wreaks of Danny Casolaro's 'Octopus' story of the mid-1990s, when PROMIS software was installed in government and law offices around the world to secretly collect data on every human being on the planet.  The repeated promises of 'Firewalls' to protect personal data turn out to be purely illusory, as we can now demonstrate that the CIA has access to EVERYTHING.

"I have nothing to hide, so who cares?" is the response many people will give to such revelations.  To such responses, I say this:  watch the movie GATTICA.
