Anonymous Has Infiltrated The U.S. Army & May Have More Influence Than We Think

According to a BuzzFeed interview with an active-duty Army captain and member of Anonymous, not only are many members of Anonymous in the military but they have played an active role in the Arab Spring and are planning more Bradley Manning type leaks.

Using different internet channels and message boards, these military members of Anonymous have been able to communicate with each other and members of the outside organization. The Army has taken several steps to crack down on these leaks and infiltration and is relying heavily on troops keeping a suspicious eye on their fellow troops, especially in the intelligence community.

Here is the transcript on the interview:
An active-duty Army captain and member of Anonymous describes how the organization operates, his own involvement in the Arab Spring, how the crackdown on Bradley Manning and Edward Snowden has affected soldiers, and how more leaks are on the way. He has agreed to speak with BuzzFeed on the condition of anonymity.

Are there a lot of members of Anonymous in the Army?
There are more than you would think, more heavily in the techie world [of the military] — especially at Fort Huachuca, where all the intel people are. A lot of them wanted to get the job [there] because they want to learn secret stuff and have a better personal understanding of how the world actually works. - See more at: http://americanmilitarynews.com/2013/08/anonymous-has-infilt...

I don't think people really get the idea of Anonymous.

There's not a meeting place for these people online.

If a hacker, or hacker group, takes down a major website or hacks databases to gain information - they may choose to post under the pseudonym "Anonymous." But no one truly belongs to Anonymous. That's the whole irony of the news reports I see when they talk about Anonymous. They think they're a group of specific people - but the name takes on its actual definition.


I don't know what to think about these guys.

Sounds Like Obama May Outlived His Usefulness

He can't pull it off - Next!
