    Microsoft Windows Hacking Tools Leaked by NSA - How? Why? What Next?
    Published on Apr 16, 2017
    "The National Security Agency (NSA) announced this week that several top secret hacking tools & scripts they had created to exploit unknown flaws in the Microsoft Windows operating systems for the purpose of surveillance & remote code execution were acquired during a hack by the hacker group Shadow Brokers which they freely distributed to the public. This raises a lot of questions about why the NSA didn't report the exploits to Microsoft and how Microsoft knew about the exploits before it was publicly known and I answer these questions and much more in this video. The views expressed in this video are my own and nobody else's and information sighted was from public sources or publicly known on Reddit, various news outlets, etc.

    Wikileaks Whistleblower Chelsea Manning released
    May 17, 2017
    https://www.scmagazineuk.com/wikileaks-whistleblower-chelsea-manning-released/article/662251/

    "Manning released a statement last week in which she thanked former President Obama for the commutation of her sentence, adding, “I can imagine surviving and living as the person who I am and can finally be in the outside world. Freedom used to be something that I dreamed of but never allowed myself to fully imagine.”

    Manning was the key leaker behind a great tide of embarrassing materials leaked from inside the US government, military and the Iraq war effort. While working as an intelligence analyst in the US army during 2010, Manning leaked classified information to Wikileaks including some of the largest document dumps in history.

    Those disclosures sent shockwaves around the world. Many have credited them with sparking the Arab springs of 2012, and the documents that she gave to Wikileaks lifted the lid on corruption around the world and abuses within the military campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    Perhaps the most notable of her disclosures was known as the “Collateral Murder” video which showed American forces firing on civilians.

    The leaks were seized upon by the New York Times, Der Spiegel and The Guardian who helped to publish the massive tranches of information and make them intelligible to the public."
