    Actually, if you already know about Cryptome, sorry, this blog post isn’t for you. Move along, pal, nothing new.

    But if you’re interested in national security issues, and particularly if you prefer to study primary source documentation and make up your own mind about things, take a look at Cryptome. The site is w-a-y old school, just a page of links in good old HTML 101. They’ve been online since 1996 and serve as a repository of documents and information, some leaked, some obtained via FOIA. Cryptome was Wikileaks decades before Wikileaks.


    For example, Cryptome currently offers aerial views of the CIA’s basic training facility (swanky), Camp Peary in Virginia, with its shooting ranges, driving track and own airstrip.

    Following the incident in Benghazi? Cryptome has overhead images of the compound and surrounding neighborhood.

    Readers are intended to be critical consumers, as Cryptome offers no commentary or validation. A list of allegded CIA agents and front companies, for example, seems overly broad, but you be the judge.


    The web site also focuses on the NSA, cryptography and publishes interesting albeit open source U.S. government documents aplenty. For anyone with such documents to share, Cryptome is happy to receive them, and includes irs PGP key on the site.

      “Cryptome was Wikileaks decades before Wikileaks.” Been there, done that and will do it again (and again). Cryptome is a-w-e-s-o-me. As you say, nothing fancy but it’s a gold mine of information. F_ck the CIA, the (long list of) other intelligence agencies and the rest of the national security state. Thanks, Peter, for sharing this with your readers. Long live Cyptome! Long live Wikileaks! :-)

      Ditto. These depraved, torturing and murdering sub human bastards ARE the terror of the world. I’d submit they’ve become THE #1 “international terrorist group”, totally outside the Rule of Law, control by Congress, and if that list is correct, have taken on a “corporate” aspect as well. It wouldn’t surprise me if the financial meltdown was part of a CIA plot. After all..take a look at all the “funds”, banks, and other financial institutions on that list.

      Frankly, I believe the CIA is the enforcement arm of the NWO, and is the power that be behind every thing that is happening in ‘merica and around the world today.

      But these say it better than I ever could …..
