Wikileaks Reveals Privately Run CIA's Dirty Secrets (Update 2)

BY JESUS DIAZ
FEB 26, 2012 7:15 PM


Wikileaks has published five million emails from Stratfor, an intelligence company based in Texas that, looking at their practices, appears to be America's very own privately run CIA. According to Wikileaks, their deals would also include the use of privileged information to make money in financial markets.

Stratfor's clients are the US Government, other countries and military organizations, as well as private companies like Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman or Raytheon. They have a global network of spies in governments and media companies, including "secret deals with dozens of media organizations and journalists, from Reuters to the Kiev Post." According to the emails, these spies get paid in Swiss bank accounts and pre-paid credit cards.

Wikileaks says that the emails also reveal the creation of a parallel organization called StratCap. Apparently, this organization would use Stratfor network of informants to make money in financial markets. Wikileaks claims that the emails show how then-Goldman Sachs Managing Director Shea Morenz and Stratfor CEO George Friedman put StratCap in motion in 2009.

Here are some of the highlights, according to Wikileaks:

Global network of informants

The Global Intelligence Files exposes how Stratfor has recruited a global network of informants who are paid via Swiss banks accounts and pre-paid credit cards.

Who are their spies?

Government and diplomatic sources from around the world give Stratfor advance knowledge of global politics and events in exchange for money. Stratfor has a mix of covert and overt informants, which includes government employees, embassy staff and journalists around the world.

How they control their sources

"[Y]ou have to take control of him. Control means financial, sexual or psychological control... This is intended to start our conversation on your next phase" � CEO George Friedman to Stratfor analyst Reva Bhalla on 6 December 2011, on how to exploit an Israeli intelligence informant providing information on the medical condition of the President of Venezuala, Hugo Chavez.

Using secret information to make money in financial markets

Stratfor's use of insiders for intelligence soon turned into a money-making scheme of questionable legality. The emails show that in 2009 then-Goldman Sachs Managing Director Shea Morenz and Stratfor CEO George Friedman hatched an idea to "utilise the intelligence" it was pulling in from its insider network to start up a captive strategic investment fund. [...] CEO George Friedman explained in a confidential August 2011 document, marked DO NOT SHARE OR DISCUSS: "What StratCap will do is use our Stratfor's intelligence and analysis to trade in a range of geopolitical instruments,particularly government bonds, currencies and the like".

US Government and Mossad ties

Stratfor claims that it operates "without ideology, agenda or national bias", yet the emails reveal private intelligence staff who align themselves closely with US government policies and channel tips to the Mossad � including through an information mule in the Israeli newspaper Haaretz, Yossi Melman, who conspired with Guardian journalist David Leigh to secretly, and in violation of WikiLeaks' contract with the Guardian, move WikiLeaks US diplomatic cables to Israel.

Secret deals with media organizations and journalists

Stratfor did secret deals with dozens of media organisations and journalists � from Reuters to the Kiev Post. The list of Stratfor's "Confederation Partners", whom Stratfor internally referred to as its "Confed Fuck House" are included in the release. While it is acceptable for journalists to swap information or be paid by other media organisations, because Stratfor is a private intelligence organisation that services governments and private clients these relationships are corrupt or corrupting.
[WikiLeaks]

Update: Stratfor CEO has resigned following this clusterfuck. It seems the company's security hasn't been fixed yet, at least according to Anonymous:

From: george.friedman@stratfor.com
To: fred.burton@stratfor.com
Subject: Draft
Date: 2012-02-26 19:02:07
It is with great personal disappointment I have to inform you that I will resign from my position as CEO for Stratfor to immediate effect.
Please rest assured that this decision was not an easy. But in the light of the recent events, especially the release of our company emails by WikiLeaks, I have decided that stepping down is in the best interest of Stratfor and its customer base.
I want to emphasize that this will have no effect on Stratfor's business or its members and we will continue to provide state-of-the-art intelligence services.
Regarding the latest breach, Stratfor is fully in control of the situation However, while I cannot take any personal responsibility for this incident, I still have to admit that mistakes have been made on our side. To be clear: We certainly do not condone any criminal activities by groups like Anonymous or other hackers. This is theft and we will continue to cooperate with law enforcement to bring those responsible to justice. But we must acknowledge that this incident would not have been possible if Stratfor had implemented stronger data protection mechanisms - which will be the case from now on. Indeed we will immediately move to implement the latest, and most comprehensive, data security measures.
While I played no role in our technical operations, as the company's CEO I do accept full responsibility thus will resign from my position effective immediately.
Again, my sincerest apologies for this whole unfortunate incident.
Sincerely,
George Friedman
Update 2: Stratfor says that the email above is false in this Reuters article:
It said it would not be cowed under the leadership of George Friedman, Stratfor's founder and chief executive officer. It said Friedman had not resigned as CEO, contrary to a bogus email circulating on the Internet.
Some of the emails being published "may be forged or altered to include inaccuracies; some may be authentic," the company statement said.
"We will not validate either. Nor will we explain the thinking that went into them. Having had our property stolen, we will not be victimized twice by submitting to questioning about them," the statement said."
Or maybe that's part of a disinformation campaign to question the credibility of all the emails. After all, the article is from Reuters. Who knows at this point.

Interpol says suspected Anonymous hackers arrested
By GREG KELLER, Associated Press � 1 hour ago February 29, 2012 
 
PARIS (AP) � Interpol said that 25 suspected members of the loose-knit Anonymous hacker movement have been arrested in a sweep across Europe and South America.

The international police agency said in a statement Tuesday that the arrests in Argentina, Chile, Colombia and Spain were carried out by national law enforcement officers working under the support of Interpol's Latin American Working Group of Experts on Information Technology Crime.

The suspects, aged between 17 and 40, are suspected of planning coordinated cyberattacks against institutions including Colombia's defense ministry and presidential websites, Chile's Endesa electricity company and national library, as well as other targets.

The arrests followed an ongoing investigation begun in mid-February which also led to the seizure of 250 items of IT equipment and mobile phones in searches of 40 premises in 15 cities, Interpol said.

In Chile's capital, Subprefect Jamie Jara said at a news conference that authorities arrested five Chileans and a Colombian. Two of the Chileans are 17-year-old minors.

The case was being handled by prosecutor Marcos Mercado, who specializes in computer crime. He said the suspects were charged with altering websites, including that of Chile's National Library, and engaging in denial-of-service attacks on websites of the electricity companies Endesa and Hidroaysen. The charges carry a penalty of 541 days to five years in prison, he said.

Jara said the arrests resulted from a recently begun investigation and officials do not yet know if those arrested are tied to any "illicit group."

"For now, we have not established that they have had any special communications among themselves," he said.

Jara said authorities were continuing to investigate other avenues, but gave no details.

Gen. Carlos Mena, commander of Colombia's Judicial Police, said no one was arrested in Colombia, but he noted that some Colombians had been arrested elsewhere, including Chile. He said he hadn't confirmed a report that one of those arrested in Argentina may have been from Colombia.

Mena did hint that there might be arrests in Colombia. He said other nations have been providing information and Colombian authorities are looking into it, but so far haven't arrested any hackers.

"You have to leave them alone, so when we have all the evidence, and the prosecutor makes the decision, we will be all over it and capturing them," he said.

No official statements have been released yet in Argentina. An Argentine media website based its story on the Interpol statement, which it quotes as saying that 10 people were arrested in Argentina.

Earlier Tuesday, police in Spain announced the arrest of four suspected Anonymous hackers in connection with attacks on Spanish political party websites. These four were among the 25 announced by Interpol.

A National Police statement said two servers used by the group in Bulgaria and the Czech Republic have been blocked.

It said the four included the alleged manager of Anonymous' computer operations in Spain and Latin America, who was identified only by his initials and the aliases "Thunder" and "Pacotron."

The four are suspected of defacing websites, carrying out denial-of-service attacks and publishing data on police assigned to the royal palace and the premier's office online.

Interpol is headquartered in Lyon, France. The organization has no powers of arrest or investigation but it helps police forces around the world work together, facilitating intelligence sharing.

Anonymous, whose genesis can be traced back to a popular U.S. image messaging board, has become increasingly politicized amid a global clampdown on music piracy and the international controversy over the secret-spilling site WikiLeaks, with which many of its supporters identify.

Authorities in Europe, North America and elsewhere have made dozens of arrests, and Anonymous has increasingly attacked law enforcement, military and intelligence-linked targets in retaliation.

One of Anonymous' most spectacular coups: Secretly recording a conference call between U.S. and British cyber investigators tasked with bringing the group to justice.

Anonymous has no real membership structure. Hackers, activists, and supporters can claim allegiance to its freewheeling principles at their convenience, so it's unclear what impact the arrests will have.

Some Internet chatter appeared to point to a revenge attack on Interpol's website, but the police organization's home page appeared to operating as normal late Tuesday.

One Twitter account purportedly associated with Anonymous' Brazilian wing said the sweep would fail.

"Interpol, you can't take Anonymous," the message read. "It's an idea."

Hacking off the Feds: Anonymous intercepts FBI conference call about�themselves (AUDIO)
Published: 03 February, 2012, 19:45
In an audio recording made and posted online by the internet hacktivists Anonymous, a number of Federal agents both in the US and the UK can be heard discussing ways to apprehend members of the group.

In an ironic post, the hacktivists made the 20-minute long conversation available online, taunting the Federal Bureau of Investigations with the leak � and the fact that while the agents may only have half-formed plans to arrest Anonymous members, the group itself is making sure to stay one step ahead.

After a rather odd discussion on whether there really is a McDonalds in the Pentagon � and gleeful confirmation of the existence of one in Sheffield � the agents get down to the point of their conference: whether dual interviews with suspects are possible, the delayed arrests of several teenagers suspected of being hackers, and unnamed �operational matters.�

But the most intriguing part of the conference comes after a US agent thanks his UK counterparts for their help. �We are here to help,� came the reply. �We know we�ve cocked up in the past.�
Unfortunately for those with Kipling�s mongoose syndrome of wanting to know all, the London field office does not elaborate on how exactly it has cocked up in the past � or whether the comment was related solely to the Bureau�s battle with hacker groups like Anonymous, LulzSec, Antisec and others.

The FBI has already reacted, saying the leaked recording was confidential,and that the information revealed �was intended for law enforcement officers only and was illegally obtained.'' The Bureau also added in its statement that it is �hunting those responsible�.
For the moment, however, the score is clearly in Anonymous� favor as they continue to catch the FBI agents off guard with their weekly #FFF � or FuckFBIFriday � leaks. The Twitter hashtag, popular among the group and its followers, usually sees some sort of sensitive or secret information leaked every week. This Friday, however, Anonymous dropped a double bombshell, releasing not only the recorded conference call, but also emails related to the case of Sgt Frank Wuterich, the US Marine that admitted to killing civilians in Iraq and walked away scot free.

12-02-27 Draft Human Rights Alert’s 2012 State of Israel UPR Submission // // //


Draft Human Rights Alert’s 2012 State of Israel UPR Submission: The electronic record systems of the courts of the State of Israel and integrity of the justice system


Executive Summary                                                                                             TOC
Allegations: Conditions, now prevailing in the electronic records of the courts of the State of Israel, amount to violation of any article of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, where integrity of the courts and the justice system is a prerequisite. Such violations undermine the rule of law. Likewise, such conditions are claimed as violations of international treaties and conventions, to which the State of Israel is a party, including, but not limited to the Hague Convention (1961).
Evidence: Human Rights Alert’s (NGO) Submission is narrowly focused on analysis of the electronic record systems in national courts (Supreme Court, district courts, detainees courts [Batey Din le- Mishmoret Muhzakim]).  In particular, public access to court records and integrity of the records, which are made accessible to the public, are examined.
The analysis is based on public court records and attempts to access court records and ascertain their integrity in practice, and uses methods inspired by data-mining and zero-knowledge proofs; on consultations with Israeli law and computing experts as well as religious leaders; on media reports, and on attempts to obtain relevant public information or solicit investigation/ corrective actions by relevant national agencies.
In 2001-3, critical events took place relative to integrity of the Supreme Court’s electronic records. Numerous case files are missing altogether, a cardinal sign of judicial corruption, according to UN reports on Strengthening Judicial Integrity.  Additionally, a large number of records are falsified. Since then, the Supreme Court's electronic records have been published online unsigned and uncertified, ‘subject to editing and phrasing changes.’ The 2010 Ombudsman’s report (60b) noted various anomalies in development and implementation of the systems, including compromised security. 
Today, the Supreme Court refuses to certify its own decisions. An unsigned, undated apostille certification procedure, which is published online by the Judicial Authority, is opined as fraud, intended to simulate compliance with the Hague Convention (1961).*
In response to Freedom of Information request, the Judicial Authority claimed that there was no instructional documentation for the systems, and other requests, pertaining to the ultimate administrative authority for the servers and the authorization of the online publication of the false apostille procedure, are still pending.
Conclusions: Precipitous deterioration in integrity of the electronic records of the courts of the State of Israel is documented over the past decade in conjunction with implementation of false new online public access and/or case management systems (CMSs) in the courts.  Prevailing conditions should be deemed a failure of the legal profession, which undermines the integrity of the justice system, and with it – civil society and socioeconomic development.
Recommendations: Proposed solutions would have to draw upon civil society agents outside the legal profession, most likely – computing experts and religious leaders.  Truth and reconciliation commission may also be required, for the resolution of the disposition of the large number of court records from the past decade, which are opined as fraud or are missing, and for investigation, whether judges/justices and/or senior officers of the Ministry of Justice of the State of Israel have been involved in wholesale violations of their oaths of office.
The State of Israel is not alone in employing false electronic record systems in the courts to simulate the rule of law.

12-02-25 Afghans besiege US bases in Koran protests// Afganos asedian las bases norteamericanas en las protestas del Corán // 阿富汗人围困在“古兰经”的抗议美军基地 // Афганцы осаждать американских баз в Коране протеста //

In what has become a routine by now, a war launched by the US to protect another nation against that nation's abusive government, ends up with much greater abuses by the US military.

With the recent riots in Afghanistan, touched off by American soldiers burning a pile of Qur'ans, killing two GI's, at least 15 Afghanis, and injuring numerous others, the American occupying force and the Karsai government appear on the precipice of the absolute loss of all popular support. This imperial faux pas arrives shortly after photos surfaced of American troops urinating on Afghani corpses, and two recent accidental attacks upon Afghani schools, killing several young children. Pushed to the point of breaking, for three days all across Afghanistan, an enraged populace, from elderly men to school children, attempted to storm American military bases with mere stones as weapons.

At a protest rally today outside the Supreme Court a sign read, "Yes Justice Kennedy, we the people see the corruption". That's a direct reference to Kennedy's assertion in "Citizens" that "independent expenditures by corps. do not give rise to corruption & the appearance of influence or access will not cause the electorate to lose faith in this democracy". Yes it will and the corruption is all too evident.

Puppets And Lackeys

By Luke Hiken and Marti Hiken

As the President travels throughout the country, seeking money from the unidentified rich, and carrying out the only campaign promise he will ever keep, namely, to raise a billion dollars to ensure his own re-election, the American people watch docilely, as the last vestiges of democracy in this country are torn asunder.  http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article30643.htm

12-02-23 The Supreme Court, the Ministry of Justice, the legal profession, and corruption of the electronic records of the courts in the State of Israel

It is inconceivable that the senior financial officers of a large corporation or a government ministry would refuse to sign any financial reports of their agencies for a decade, and the senior executive officers of the respective agencies would only file reports under the disclaimer, 'subject to changes.' But the Supreme Court's records have not been certified by the Chief Clerk of the Supreme Court for almost a decade, and all decisions of the Supreme Court are published subject to changes.
Critical events, related to corruption of the electronic records of the courts of the State of Israel, took place in the period of 2001-3 and involved US based corporations IBM and EDS.  Conduct of the Supreme Court, the Ministry of Justice, the Israeli Bar Association and NGOs in subsequent years amounts to systemic failure of the legal profession in the State of Israel. 
Any proposed solution would have to draw upon other civil society agents, most likely - computing experts and religious leaders.  Allowing current conditions to prevail is likely to result in widespread corruption of the justice system.

http://www.scribd.com/doc/82597082/ Jerusalem, February 23 - "The most striking events, relative to corruption of the electronic records of the Supreme Court of the State of Israel, took place in 2001-3," says Joseph Zernik, PhD, of Human Rights Alert (NGO), "The conduct of the Supreme Court, the Ministry of Justice, the Israeli Bar Association, and relevant NGOs in subsequent years amounts to a systemic failure of the legal profession."

The Judiciary and the Supreme Court: The rhetoric regarding 'constitutional rights' is inconsistent with the failure to comply with the fundamentals of due process.
 
Conduct of the judiciary was largely reconstructed from the discontinuities in certification patterns of the Supreme Court's decisions between 2001-2003:  In the transition to a new electronic record system (ELYON2), a dispute erupted between the justices/magistrates and the Chief Clerk of the Supreme Court. The core of the dispute, as it appears from the records, is in the desire of the justices to be able to modify decisions after their "entry" (Rishum).  The new system enabled the direct entry of records by the justices, bypassing the Chief Clerk.  Likewise, the new system enabled the retroactive modification of records by the justices, after the records had already been entered.  Under such circumstances, the Chief Clerk was left in a position that he could not certify any definite record as the "original" for a "true copy."  In a more fundamental level the dispute was over control of the records and the duty and authority of the Chief Clerk as the custodian of the records..  In practice, the dispute was over the ultimate administrative authority for the servers of the Supreme Court. 

In the middle of this dispute Chief Clerk Shmaryahu Cohen died in office.  Within days a Rasham (magistrate judge) started substituting for the Chief Clerk.  Such substitution was permitted by law, but the Rasham certified the records of the Supreme Court anonymously, with no mention of his/her name, and the evidence shows numerous records missing or bearing false dates and/or certificates.

Starting January 2003, no certification and no mention of the Chief Clerk appears on the records of the Supreme Court, although a new Chief Clerk had already been appointed.

The online publication by the Judicial Authority of a false and deliberately misleading apostille certification procedure is of particular significance.  A reasonable person would conclude that the procedure was intended to simulate compliance with the Hague Convention (1961).

It is impossible that any of the justices of the Supreme Court was and is unaware of the underlying issues.  The underlying issues have affected the daily routine of the Supreme Court for a decade.

Such conduct by the justices of the Supreme Court took place during the same years that the Supreme Court launched a campaign of evolving 'constitutional rights' in Israel.  The rhetoric of 'constitutional rights', most notably in Israeli Civil Rights Association v Minister of Justice, is inconsistent with failure of the Supreme Court to uphold the fundamentals of due process - honest and transparent court records, and due notice and service of judicial orders and decisions.

The evidence shows that the Supreme Court today routinely publishes online simulated records, and arbitrarily conducts simulated review of entire cases.  Such conduct violates the fundamental Human Rights of access to national tribunals for protection of rights, and for fair hearings.

The Ministry of Justice: Resigned to corruption of the electronic records of the courts as a permanent condition.
Particularly intriguing is the sequence of events of 2003-5:
o       In 2001-3 discontinuities are found in the certification of the Supreme Court's electronic records, which were followed by disappearance altogether of the certifications by the Chief Clerk of the Supreme Court on the individual electronic records.
o       In 2003-4 new Regulations of the Courts were promulgated by the Ministry of Justice, pertaining to public access to court records, the duties and authority of the Office of the Clerk.

The new Regulations could appear as intended to enhance the authority of the offices of the clerks and public access to court records.  However, in pertinent part the Regulations say:
5. Mechanical SystemsAny directive in these regulations shall be complied with in any mechanical or electronic
system of the courts, with necessary modifications, following instructions of the Director of the Administration of the Courts.

In paragraph 5, the Regulations authorized the Director of the office of Administration of the Courts to modify the Regulations in an unchecked manner.  The legal system of the State of Israel does not permit any promulgation by the Judicial Authority, and no lawful procedure has been established for the promulgation or publication of such regulations.  Paragraph 5, above, should be considered equivalent to the controversial Rule Making Enabling Act (28 USC 2071-7) in the United States.  
 o       In 2005, the Regulations were amended, again appearing to enhance the authority of the office of the clerk as custodian of the court's records, and the chief clerks as the ones authorized to certify the decisions. 

However, by 2012, the electronic records of the courts are maintained in servers on corporate grounds in Herzlia, and the Chief Clerk of the Supreme Court refuses to certify the judicial records of the Supreme Court.

o       Around 2009-12, a new apostille certification procedure was published online by the Judicial Authority, with no valid legal foundation. 
-        The procedure required joint, convoluted implementation by the Judicial Authority and the Ministry of Justice.
-        The procedure was intended to circumvent the refusal of the Clerk of the Supreme Court to certify the decisions of the Supreme Court (and possibly similar refusal by other chief clerks), and to simulate compliance with the Hague Convention (1961).

The publication of the fraudulent apostille certification procedure demonstrates the resignation of the Ministry of Justice to conditions, where the electronic records of the courts are permanently corrupt.

The Israeli Bar Association and some NGOs: Unsuccessful opposition
 The Israeli Bar Association obtained in 2003 a consent judgment by the Supreme Court against the Minister of Religious Affairs, mandating that the rabbinical courts comply with the law of the State of Israel relative to due process notice and service of court orders and decisions. 

The evidence shows that the Supreme Court today does not comply with the same provisions of the law.

The evidence also shows persistent opposition by the Israeli Bar Association to the implementation of Net Ha-Mishpat electronic record system in the district courts.  In particular, the Israeli Bar Association opposed the changes in established court procedures, which were unilaterally implemented in the system by the Judicial Authority.

Likewise, the Israeli Civil Rights Association, a notable NGO, was engaged for over a decade in litigation before the Supreme Court against the Ministry of Justice, relative to restrictions that were promulgated in the Regulations of the Courts on public access to court records.  The restriction were promulgated in conjunction with implementation of the electronic record systems.  The judgment by Presiding Justice Dorit Beinisch, in favor of the Ministry of Justice, permitting the restricting regulations elaborated on numerous 'constitutional rights'. 

The Israel Democracy Institute, another notable NGO, or some of its key personnel, were involved as consultants to the State of Israel government on matters related to electronic record systems.

It is unlikely that none of the senior attorneys appearing before the Supreme Court, or involved in international law, have noticed the corruption of the records and the missing Chief Clerk's certifications.

US corporate involvement
The Ombudsman'
s report did not name the corporations, who were involved in development of the electronic record systems of the courts of the State of Israel.  However, media identified the corporations as Teldor, EDS, and IBM. 

Media reported that IBM and EDS were involved in corruption of governments elsewhere in the world.

The scope of the problem and potential solutions
Over the past decade, unknown number of Supreme Court records have been falsified, and unknown number of fraudulent Hague Convention apostille certifications have been issued.  The integrity of the electronic records was undermined by the judiciary.  However, other government branches and the legal profession at large failed to stop the process.

The conditions, now prevailing in the Supreme Court reflect a failure of the legal profession as a class.  Had there been a constitution in the State of Israel, conditions should have been considered a 'constitutional crisis.'   Therefore, any proposed solution should attempt to draw upon civil society agents from other walks of life - e.g., computing experts, or religious leaders.  If current conditions are permitted to prevail, widespread corruption of the justice system should be expected.

Similar events took place in the United States a decade or two earlier, and are tightly linked to the current financial and constitutional crises there, with widespread criminality by large corporations, which is repeatedly "settled" by the courts.  Involvement of the US-based corporations IBM and EDS in events related to the electronic records of the Israeli courts is particularly alarming, as is the speed at which the Israeli courts imitated corrupt practices of the United States courts.

Nathan Schneider, Op-Ed: “The prospect of an Occupy general strike has been circulating for a while already. One of the several Facebook event pages devoted to it has more than 10,000 attendees. Occupy Los Angeles began calling for a May  1 general strike as early as last November, and Occupy Oakland joined at the end of January. Occupy Wall Street’s Direct Action group tried to take a strategic approach to the idea; though many of its members had little hesitation about calling for it, they took steps to ensure there was consultation, and therefore buy-in, among some of those whose participation would be vital.”

Invalid, simulated apostille certification procedure published online by the Judicial Authority of the State of Israel
The apostille certification procedure, published online by the Judicial Authority, is invalid by design.  Its outcome should be considered a simulated apostille certification [Ishur le-Mar'it Ayin] of judicial records, relative to the Hague Convention (1961).  It is part of a pattern of compromised integrity of the electronic records of the Supreme Court of the State of Israel, and refusal of the Chief Clerk to assume accountability for the Supreme Court's records.  Computing experts are readily available in Israel, who could examine and provide solutions.  However, resolution of false records, already entered in the system, is likely to require the establishment of a Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

xxx Jerusalem, February 19 – Freedom of Information request has been filed with the office of Courts Administration of the State of Israel, pertaining to the process by which the online Public Information Page – Authentication of Public Records (“Apostille”) was generated and authorized for publication. [1]

"The online published procedure should raise serious concerns," says Joseph Zernik, PhD, of Human Rights Alert (NGO), "The procedure is invalid by design and convoluted by implementation. It cannot be reasonably be considered an inadvertent error." [2,3]
According to Dr Zernik, the procedure is invalid due to its false chain of authentication authorities, [4,5] and therefore the document outcome of such procedure should be considered a simulated apostille certification. relative to the Hague Convention (1961). [6]
Dr Zernik had previously filed Freedom of Information requests on the office of Courts Administration, pertaining to other aspects of the certification, or lack thereof, of the electronic records of the Supreme Court. [7,8]  The two earlier requests remain unanswered. [9]
The apostille certification procedure should be seen as part of a wider pattern of compromised integrity of the records of the Supreme Court:

  • The publication of simulated records and the conduct of simulated litigation; [10]
  • Variations in the certification boxes of the records over the past decade that ended with no certification at all; [11]
  • Discontinuities in the certification authority of the records; [12]
  • Refusal of the office of the Clerk of the Court to certify Supreme Court records, even upon request; [13]
  • False dates/certifications of decisions/judgments of the Supreme Court, [14] and
  • Missing ID certifications of the Supreme Court servers. [15] 
Several Israeli computing and legal experts expressed concern regarding these findings.

The State Ombudsman 2010 report (60b) [16] additionally noted, regarding development and implementation of the systems, which involved Electronic Data Systems Corporation [NYSE:EDS] and IBM Global Technology Services [NYSE: IBM]: [17]
  • Corporations were awarded state contracts with no bidding, as required by Israeli law and regulations;
  • Development was initiated with no written specifications;
  • Development was supervised by individuals on special personal contracts, with no core supervision by state employees, as required by Israeli law and regulations;
  • No independent inspections were conducted by the state customer prior to implementation of the systems;
  • The servers were located under corporate control, not under the State Courts Administration, and
  • Unknown number of individuals had issued double smart ID cards.
“It is not clear, who controls the electronic records of the Supreme Court today,” says  Dr Zernik, “What is clear is that the Chief Clerk of the Supreme Court refuses to be held accountable for the integrity of the Supreme Court’s records.”

“Data protection and cryptology experts are readily available in Israel, who could examine the systems and propose solutions,” says Dr Zernik, “However, any solution is likely to also require a Truth and Reconciliation Commission, to address the false records already entered in the systems.”

Dr Zernik had previously shown that the electronic record systems of the California and US courts enable and are routinely employed for fraud on the People by large corporations and financial institutions in collusion with the courts. [18,19]

The 2010 submission of Human Rights Alert to the Human Rights Council (HRC) of the United Nations was reviewed by the HRC professional staff and incorporated in the official HRC Professional Staff Report with a note referring to “corruption of the courts and the legal profession and discrimination by law enforcement in California.”  [20,21]

http://www.scribd.com/doc/82036041/[2] In pertinent sections, the the online Public Information Page – Authentication of Public Records (“Apostille”) says:
In the procedure for authentication of public records, they are certified by a Notary Public.  The acknowledgement by the Notary Public is a public record, which requires authentication as well.  Authentication of the latter public record, and this record alone[bold in the original - jz], is under the authority of the courts.  The authentication is executed on a form in compliance with the agreement with the destination nation.
...
“Apostille”
-  a document destined to nations, who are parties to the October 5, 1961 Hague Convention for the Abolishment of Requirement for Legalization of Public Records (Heretofore the “Convention”).  Israel is a party to the Convention.  Therefore, the courts authenticate Notary Public acknowledgements, which are destined to nations, which are parties to the Convention, by an “Apostille” document.
...
The “Apostille” document is of the form and language stipulated in the Convention, as shown hereafter:
A specific, bilingual (Hebrew/English) “Apostille” form is also provided online by the Judicial Authority of the State of Israel as part of theInformation Page.

http://elyon1.court.gov.il/heb/info/apostil.htm 
[4] False chain of authentication authorities, relative to the spirit and the letter of the October 5, 1961 Hague Convention for the Abolishment of Requirement for Legalization of Public Records:As is the case in other courts that originated in the English common law, the law and regulations of the State of Israel (see 5, below) designate the "Office of the Clerk" as the custodian of the judicial records of a given court, and authorized only the individual, who is the "Chief Clerk" of a given court, to certify the authenticity of judicial records of that court.
In contrast, the online Public Information Page – Authentication of Public Records (“Apostille”) requires that a Notary Public certify the judicial records.
The offices of the clerks of the various courts are not typically authorized to authenticate the signatures of Notaries.  As is indicated in the online Public Information Page – Authentication of Public Records (“Apostille”), the Minister of Justice authorizes certain individuals, who are staff members of the offices of the various Clerks of the Courts, to authenticate Notries Public signatures, in order to enable this procedure.

Emacs!
Yeats photographed in 1923

Yeats' 1920 poem, "The Second Coming" contains some of literature's most potent images of the twentieth century.

Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned.
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.

WikiLeaks: Bradley Manning Nominated for Nobel Peace Prize by Icelandic Parliamentarian

February 7, 2012 12:25 PM EST

On Saturday, Icelandic member of parliament Birgitta Jónsdóttir posted a nomination letter on her blog on behalf of the three-member parliamentary group The Movement, proposing suspected WikiLeaks source Bradley Manning as a candidate for the 2012 Nobel Peace Prize. Nobel Peace Prize nominations can be submitted by any member of a national assembly, among others.

12-02-08 IBM, ESD, and corruption of governments // IBM, EDS y la corrupción de los gobiernos // IBM,ESD 和政府的腐败 // IBM, EDS, и коррупция правительства

Emacs!    Emacs! Over the past decade, US corporations IBM and EDS have been involved in development of the electronic record systems of the courts of the State of Israel.

According to the State Ombudsman 2010 report (60b): [1]-         The corporations were awarded contracts with no bidding;
-         Development was initiated with no written specifications;
-         No state employees were involved in core supervision, only individuals on personal special consulting contracts;
-         The state customer did not perform any independent examination of the systems prior to implementation;
-         The servers are located on corporate grounds, not under the courts administration;
-         Unknown number of persons issued double smart ID cards.

Previous reports documented that the systems, developed by these corporations undermined the integrity of court records in Israel.  [2]
Below are search results regarding involvement of IBM, EDS in other cases of corruption of governments. 

As is often the case with high level corruption, one can assume that most cases are never exposed.

Although the systems implemented in the Israeli courts and the US courts are very different, the nature of the fraud in their systems is similar, and the end results are identical: conduct of simulated litigation and publication of simulated court decisions and judgments, and refusal of the offices of the Clerks of the courts to certify the courts' decision. [3-5]
"A court, which refuses to certify its own decisions, is certified corrupt," concludes Joseph Zernik, PhD, of Human Rights Alert (NGO).
