A recent post — NSA Hacked French President’s House — has been viewed yesterday by more than 7,000 readers from 124 countries.
GOOGLE would point to this blog on the search — in English — for the word ‘NSA’.
Unfortunately, we noticed that the video is no longer available: “This video has been removed by the user”, YouTube indicates. And of course, the video is no longer available on the website of the French Newspaper ‘Le Monde’.
Shorter videos have appeared on several French News Media but the 90′ long interview of Bernard Barbier is no longer available. Here is a video showing Barbier’ s interview.
‘Quantum Insert’ Attacks & Facebook pages
The French media however confirm that the NSA had used Facebook [and ‘Quantum Insert Attacks’ ] to get inside the computers of several collaborators of Sarkozy. See this video.
SECRET//SI//NOFORN VISIT PRECIS BERNARD BARBIER
The secret document “SECRET//SI//NOFORN VISIT PRECIS BERNARD BARBIER” confirms that Barbier visited the NSA on April 12 2013 to discuss the attacks. The US agencies had denied involvement in January and offered assistance in attributing the attacks.
This note offers a summary of the information published by the French Media:
An initial press report from Paris Atlantico, “French Web site Says Turkish Hackers Behind Elysée Cyber Attacks.” dated 12 July 2012 stated it was believed “the attacks originated from France’s allies” and speculated Turkish hackers with possible links to Turkish “intelligence services or government bodies” might be responsible.
Barbier claims in the interview that he came easily and quickly to the conclusion that only two countries –The US and Russia — were capable of such a sophisticated attack. Based on similarities with a previous attack the DGSE had investigated and understood, Barbier was 100% convinced that the attacks were coming from the NSA.
The removal of Barbier’ s extraordinary interview is a fact ‘open to interpretation’.
Perhaps, there is a perfectly innocent explanation. Then again, someone may have decided that the former Director of the DGSE –Technical Division — had been a little too talkative?
