Ukrainian hacking group CyberBerkut released this video back in 2015, claiming they ripped it from one of John McCain’s laptops.
Given some of the #QAnon revelations we’ve had recently, I thought it worth bringing to your attention:
The hackers had this to say at the time:
“We CyberBerkut received at the disposal of the file whose value can not be overstated! Dear Senator McCain! We recommend you next time in foreign travel, and especially on the territory of Ukraine, not to take confidential documents. In one of the devices of your colleagues, we found a lot of interesting things. Something we decided to put: this video should become the property of the international community!”
It’s been brought to my attention that individuals at the time of James Foley’s beheading were concerned about the veracity of the video.
Given what we know now, rewatch this clip from ABC news.
Now, I’m not saying these are the same incident. Not at all. The Foley one, for instance, definitely looks filmed outside.
But don’t you find it a bit off that Foley is wearing a mic? Like, an expensive lav mic that hooks up wirelessly to the multi-camera setup they just happen to have out here in the desert.
And remember how his death was used as justification for military action in Syria?
One last video:
Hmmm…. Foley worked for USAID.
Where else have we seen USAID today? (Hint: Second photo).
