The CIA plans to radically overhaul operations, ramping up its capability to deal with cyber threats while boosting integration between departments via a network of new units, the agency says.
Central Intelligence Agency director John Brennan outlined the proposed changes to the agency in a message to staff on Friday described as a “Blueprint for the Future” covering four key areas.
Mr Brennan said the US espionage agency would set up a new “Directorate of Digital Innovation” to reflect the rapidly evolving cyber landscape :: Read the full article »»»»

Tinfoil hats at the ready; A newly-declassified CIA document has confirmed the existence of famed Area 51 – Groom Lake, an outpost of Edwards Air Force Base – in Nevada, however, conspiracy theorists will be mightily disappointed, the recently released documents offer NO proof of alien spaceship landings at the top secret site.
Area 51 has long been fodder for wild UFO tales claiming the US government imposed secrecy over the site north-west of Las Vegas to cover up evidence of extraterrestrials. Paradise Ranch, or the Nevada Test and Training Range – as the US Air Force likes to call it – 135 km/83 miles north-northwest of Las Vegas, remains enigmatic, it’s current purpose is officially UNDETERMINED!
The latest release – under US freedom of information law – outlines that instead of encounters with flying saucers, recounts the history of Area 51 as a testing range for the government’s U2 spy plane during the Cold War. The intense secrecy around the base has helped keep the site in UFO folklore :: Read the full article »»»»

Australian mining magnate Clive Palmer has outlandishly accused the United States Government of funding environmental group Greenpeace via the CIA to undermine Australia’s coal mining sector. Palmer made the extraordinary claim over Greenpeace’s plan to use the court system to tie up coal mining applications.
Palmer is apparently angry at Greenpeace’s plan to use lawyers to thwart future coal mining projects and claims funding is coming from US environmental charity the Rockefeller Foundation. He alleges it is funded by the CIA and says it is trying to harm Australia’s industry and help American interests.
Palmer referred to a paper produced by environmental group Greenpeace which calls for action to stop the expansion of the Queensland coal industry. Greenpeace’s plans were leaked to the media earlier this month as it organises a campaign to raise $6 million to fund legal battles against controversial coal mining projects across Australia :: Read the full article »»»»

With growing concerns over the very real threat of “cyber warfare,” militaries around the globe are racing to recruit specialised computer personnel, operatives they believe may be central to the conflicts of the 21st century. While money is plentiful for new forces of “cyber warriors,” attracting often individualistic technical specialists and hackers into military hierarchies is another matter.
Finding the people to command them is also tough. After a decade of messy and relatively low-tech ground wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, some senior western officers are if anything less confident with technology such as smartphones and tablet computers than their civilian contemporaries.
Ironically, the earliest – modern – computers were developed by the military to crack codes, simulate nuclear explosions and communicate effectively through battle conditions. The Internet – our daily bread – grew out of a military research program, the wide open pockets of military technology spending gave us satnav, 747 Jumbos and sms.
With the Pentagon saying its computers are being attacked millions of times every day, time is short. “We are busy and we are getting busier every day,” Lt Gen Rhett Hernandez, a former artillery officer who now heads U.S. Cyber Command, told a cyber security conference in London last month organized by British firm Defence IQ. “Cyberspace requires a world-class cyber warrior … we must develop, recruit and retain in a different way to today.” Read the full article »»»»
