Another profound revelation is that the CIA can engage in "false flag" cyberattacks which portray Russia as the assailant.

Discussing the CIA's Remote Devices Branch's UMBRAGE group, Wikileaks' source notes that it
"collects and maintains a substantial library of attack techniques 'stolen' from malware produced in other states including the Russian Federation. "With UMBRAGE and related projects the CIA cannot only increase its total number of attack types but also misdirect attribution by leaving behind the "fingerprints" of the groups that the attack techniques were stolen from. UMBRAGE components cover keyloggers, password collection, webcam capture, data destruction, persistence, privilege escalation, stealth, anti-virus (PSP) avoidance and survey techniques."

Your Say

Umbrage, huh? Is their other project "High Dudgeon?"

And why is anyone surprised that the CIA (or any intelligence organization) works on being able to conduct false flag operations. Or black flag. Or gray flag. Sheesh, people, grow up. Even if you never participated knowingly yourself, don't you read spy novels or watch such movies?

If you can't hear the unbalanced machine over revving and coming apart at the seams, requiring you to hunker down and tooter up there's something wrong with your circuit board. If you know which end of a screwdriver is the business end and you don't wear a thong you too can assemble a fairly decent AR from scratch in a single evening for less than $500 and nobody but you will know about it. The following evening, for less than 25% of the cost of store bought, you can reload 300+ rds of 5.56. Keeping your nose to the grinder in a month, if it lasts that long, you will have a decent armory for your tribe. BTW, don't forget the grub and h2o. There's no such thing as *too much* in the realists world.

Assume anything you tell anyone else is also known by some other(s).
The upside of this loss of secrecy may be an explosion of truth, or at least candidness which if inaccurate is at least honest opining.
Face and voice analysis/recognition technology applied to TV and radio and nonelectronic speech will soon be reporting, in real time, misleaders from honest speakers.
The honest speakers may be honest but wrong in their viewpoints. Sociopaths will still be a problem not detectable by face/voice recognition techniques. To be on the safe side assume the worst and be ready, if your life is at stake, with the Mattis attitude.
Ur innate ability is important. Urinate before girding your loins for the future fracas.
