Guantánamo's military court will reportedly call CIA witnesses to explain the Agency's destruction of torture evidence - an act carried out in part by the new Deputy Director of the CIA, Gina Haspel.
WikiLeaks has published what it says is the largest leak of secret CIA documents in history. The thousands of documents, dubbed "Vault 7," describe CIA programs and tools that are capable of hacking into both Apple and Android cellphones. By hacking into entire phones, the CIA is then reportedly able to bypass encrypted messenger programs such as Signal, Telegram and WhatsApp, although—contrary to many news reports—the documents do not show the CIA has developed tools to hack these encrypted services themselves. The documents also outline a CIA and British intelligence program called "Weeping Angel," through which the spy agency can hack into a Samsung smart television and turn it into a surveillance device that records audio conversations, even when it appears to be off. Other documents describe ways to hack into Skype, Wi-Fi networks, PDFs and commercial antivirus programs. The leak also shows the CIA has reportedly looked for ways to hack into cars and trucks, which WikiLeaks said "would permit the CIA to engage in nearly undetectable assassinations."
Other documents outline how the CIA has used the U.S. Consulate in Frankfurt, Germany, as a covert base to spy on Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Monday’s release totals 7,818 web pages and 943 attachments, which WikiLeaks says comes from the CIA’s Center for Cyber Intelligence in Langley, Virginia. Some of the material was redacted by WikiLeaks to avoid releasing the actual computer code used in the programs.
WikiLeaks says Monday’s release is only the first batch of many more secret CIA documents. The CIA has refused to comment on the authenticity of the documents. But at least one anonymous government official told The New York Times the documents were real, while another a former intelligence officer told the Times the code names used in the documents appeared to be accurate. WikiLeaks did not reveal the source of the leak, but did say the source "wishes to initiate a public debate about the security, creation, use, proliferation and democratic control of cyberweapons."
On Twitter, Edward Snowden said, "The CIA reports show the [U.S. Government] developing vulnerabilities in US products, then intentionally keeping the holes open. Reckless beyond words."

Two congressional committees are advancing legislation today to repeal the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.

“Kadın ilk olarak, bedeni üzerinde başka herhangi birisinin hak iddia etmesini reddederek; istemedikçe çocuk doğurmayı reddederek; Tanrı’ya, devlete, topluma, kocaya, aileye ve benzeri şeylere hizmetkârlık yapmayı reddederek. Yaşamını daha basit, ancak daha derin ve daha zengin yaparak. Yani, kamuoyu görüşü ile halkın ayıplaması korkusundan kendisini kurtararak, yaşamın anlamını ve özünü tüm karmaşıklığıyla öğrenmeyi deneyerek. Kadınları oy sandığı değil, ancak bu özgürleştirecektir.”
"First, by asserting herself as a personality, and not as a sex commodity. Second, by refusing the right to anyone over her body; by refusing to bear children, unless she wants them; by refusing to be a servant to God, the State, society, the husband, the family, etc., by making her life simpler, but deeper and richer. That is, by trying to learn the meaning and substance of life in all its complexities, by freeing herself from the fear of public opinion and public condemnation. Only that, and not the ballot, will set woman free."
The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights is raising concerns over Federal Communications Chair (FCC) Chairman Ajit Pai’s recent decisions on Lifeline, media ownership, and inmate calling rates.
