Cryptome F1 Snitch Talk

Cryptome received a telephone call yesterday from a young man who said he wanted to learn more about Wikileaks. Said he was confused and would appreciate hearing from someone who had a lot of experience with these kinds of things. Said he was a student who had served two tours in Iraq and planned to return to military service as an officer. Tell me about Cryptome, he said, why are you doing it, how you get started. What you think of Wikileaks.

Cryptome provided its pre-prepared tell-all to anonymous callers wanting understanding about the mysterious world of "spilling secrets," about 10 minutes of snitch pulp plagiarized from the CIA FOIA and its Studies in Intelligence, the  Snitch Museum, the bulging shelves of snitch novels and Wikileaks snitch confessions galore. Enough to stay on the list of suspects needed to keep snitches and their controllers snitching to upstairs funders eager to snitch to taxpayers about national security threats. To help young snitches demonstrate their prowess at sucking information out of farts eager to warn people to think for themselves, to defy authority, to distrust leaders who will sacrifice them while pocketing rewards, to battle the diabolical cult of national security, to ... Key F1.

Cryptome hit pause, whispered, we shouldn't be talking on the telephone, dangerous to you to be recorded talking to Cryptome. Send an email for identification and a more secure means to communicate will be arranged.

Will I be able to talk to you anymore?

It doesn't have to be about anything I have to say.  I am generally interested 
in listening to you. In a world where information seems to be the most valuable
resource; I find myself knowing that I really know nothing. On Tue, Aug 3, 2010 at 2:26 PM, John Young <jya[at]> wrote: Hi [Deleted], Good talking with you. Be careful. Regards. John

Well, I tried calling you one more time.  I am unsure from your last email as 
to whether we can further communicate.  I have a vested interest in finding 
out as much as I can from those who are older and wiser then me but still give 
a disclaimer "I don't know anything."  Knowing this I very much so would like 
to find a form of conversing that fits your(our) needs.
