Sibel Edmonds exposes Omidyar, PayPal: Implicated in Withheld NSA Documents; William Binney & Russell Tice CONFIRM!

BFP Breaking News- Omidyar’s PayPal Corporation Said To Be Implicated in Withheld NSA Documents
The U.S. Government, An Implicated Billionaire, Fortune-Seeking Journalists & A Public in the Dark

Sibel Edmonds | December 11, 2013

The 50,000-pages of documents obtained by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden contain extensive documentation of PayPal Corporation’s partnership and cooperation with the National Security Agency (NSA), according to three NSA veterans. To date, no information has been released as to the extent of the working relationship and cooperation between the two entities- NSA and PayPal Corporation. What’s more, the billionaire owner of PayPal Corporation has entered into a $250 Million business partnership with two journalists-Glenn Greenwald and Laura Poitras, a journalist duo who possess the entire cache of evidence provided by Edward Snowden. Despite earlier pledges by the journalists in question, only one percent (1%) of Snowden’s documents has been released.

BFP was recently contacted by a retired NSA official who claims that the documents obtained by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden contain extensive documentation pertaining to NSA’s partnership with major U.S. financial institutions, including credit card companies and PayPal Corporation. The official, who requested anonymity, also alleges that a deal was made in early June, 2013 between the journalists involved in this recent NSA scandal and U.S. government officials, which was then sealed by secrecy and nondisclosure agreements by all parties involved.

Upon receiving this report BFP contacted three other high-level former NSA officials for additional information and comments.

And, pray tell: what does Omidyar's Quisling buddy/co-founder of PayPal, Max Levchin, think of illegal, UnConstitutional NSA spying? Observe:

Who's Controlling The Snowden Documents and to What Purpose?

Who's Controlling The Snowden Documents and to What Purpose?

Glenn Greenwald has only released 1% of the Snowden documents and those were approved and released after over 100 meetings with US and British intelligence. Some documents are being held back to be released with Greenwald's book. And Greenwald's possession of the documents were the basis of his new $250 million media venture with PayPal's Pierre Omidyar raising ethical questions of checkbook journalism. But even more troubling is the close relationship between the NSA and Omidyar's PayPal.

Whistleblower Sibel Edmonds of BoilingFrogsPost.com has been publicly asking questions of Greenwald and Snowden to determine the ethics and purpose of the Snowden leaks.

Mr. Snowden, It’s Time to Come Out and Take a Stand Publicly as to Your Intentions

Sibel Edmonds | December 15, 2013

When It Comes to Whistleblowing, Integrity & Purity of Intentions Matter Most

A week ago I began writing a series of commentaries on significant consequences and conflicts of interest associated with Glenn Greenwald, his new PayPal billionaire boss, and the ownership and commoditization of the 50,000-page incriminating documents obtained and released by NSA’s Edward Snowden. In my series I solely focused on serious ethical questions and consequential conflicts of interest matters that have remained unasked and unanswered with regards to the recent joint venture between Greenwald and Omidyar, dubious and lucrative book and movie deals with mainstream corporations under the premise of exclusive document release, and our government’s sudden and unexplained change in its stand and modus operandi.

Up to this point I have left the topic of Mr. Edward Snowden pretty much untouched, and here is why.

To date, after six months of intense and nonstop mainstream media coverage of the Snowden-NSA topic, very little is known about Mr. Snowden himself, and this includes his real intentions and objectives, the nature and details of his deals and agreements with members of the press-including those made with Glenn Greenwald, and his position on the latest developments, which include the exclusive business deal struck between Greenwald and billionaire Omidyar, million dollar book and movie deals made based on exclusive publication of some of the leaked documents, and the highly mysterious change of position in the government’s stand and response in the midst of all the publicity and commoditization of the controversial leaked NSA cache.

What about the connections between PayPal, the CIA and the data mining company they founded — Palantir? Is PayPal owner Pierre Omidyar an altruistic billionaire who cares deeply about investigative journalism or did he work with US government to financially strangle WikiLeaks and prosecute the PayPal14? Is Omidyar’s new journalism company a move by the CIA and globalist banksters like PayPal to co-opt authentic journalism and control public debate about the NSA?

If Snowden wants to retain a shred of credibility he needs to distance himself from Greenwald any way he can.

Sibel Edmods direct address to Snowden

Sibel Edmonds posted this direct address to Snowden.

Part of it is bizarre, as she's directly asking Snowden what his intentions were etc. After the interview he gave to Greenwald-Poitras, as well as public statements made in Moscow airport press conference, I can't believe Sibel Edmonds still doesn't know his intentions.

The later part of it is not so bizarre, in which she directly requests Snowden to comment on what he thinks about the Greenwald-Omidyar controversy.

Like I said, I think it's asumed Snowden is legitimate...

And like Julian Assange, he did not have any interest in this taking the twist it has. I think Snowden made it very clear he wished to have the newspaper report these leaked documents, specifically Russia free press and other editorials.

I'm sure many viewers would greatly prefer he went with Russia Today, and dropped the Guardian all together like a hot potato for now. It obviously would make this whole soap opera die down.

However I again reiterate, that Greenwald's character flaws are nothing that ascribe real guilt. Edmonds just does not like him is what I gather from her articles.

I see nothing showing Greenwald even had any idea this was a problem, nor do I see anything that suggests motives. Also recall, he went to Laura first before approaching Omidyar and was warned. He's an opportunist rushing into hasty judgment calls, but that's pretty much all. Omidyar is definitely the one who's guilty.

I have a great deal of respect for both Glenn and Sibel.

She made great efforts to get her original message out through the MSM and caught holy hell. But in doing so she also did a lot of damage to the 'establishment' with her actions. It's taken time, but only a few years, and in the grand scheme.

Glenn has also done a lot of great work I think. The real message is for us to research and verify what they have both exposed.

Listen to all but follow none.

Ron Paul took money from sinners and used it well.

Some people are willing to resist the temptations for fame, money and power.

Guilt by association is a fallacious argument, not proof.

Free includes debt-free!

let exposure of 9/11 be the litmus test.

If they don't report on the TRUTH behind 9/11, then through omission they are not writing about everything that is true.

I still take it that Greenwald was conned...

I see all sides of this, and Sir Omidyar seems like a simple and helpful gentleman at first glance. It is impossible for even casual observers to not simply just trust him without regret. However, as CNN, RawStory and the mainstream media is finding out...Omidyar is not even innocent. He's on the board of directors for InnoCentive, and In-Q-Tel; which are financially partnered with defense firms like Palantir and Boeing. So much for not having a conflict of interest.
http://mattermark.com/106-startups-who-received-investment-f...
http://www.boilingfrogspost.com/2013/12/14/green-light-for-g...

On top of that, he was partnered with Peter Thiel and now Thiel is after him for some other reason. It could be a smear campaign, yet in between the innuendo are some shocking facts. Thiel was head CEO of Palantir a short time ago. Pierre Omidyar is financially partnered, and paid, through Booz Allen Hamilton.

http://investing.businessweek.com/research/stocks/people/rel...
http://davidshurter.com/?p=3815

And then he's got numbers of employees, over at Booz Allen and then just showing up working for Omidyar network. It makes no sense, it buggers belief that he would know nothing. Then on top of this, Greenwald's role in it is muddy but I take a position he was duped. His past actions show him making errors, so I feel that this was just another wrongly made choice. When there's all the talk about book deals, it's easy to blindly walk into an establishment trap.
http://cryptome.org/2013/12/ogr.htm

Still the credibility of this "New" media outlet starts off on the foot of being tabloids.

You are wrong...again.

Omidyar Network invested in the $9M round with 3 others in InnoCentive. Iqbal Paroo, a senior adviser to him, previously served on InnoCentive's board in 2007-X. InnoCentive is an open solutions company that has thousands of PhDs working to solve a vast array of problems. They aren't some evil organization.

In-Q-Tel did co-invest with Omidyar Network but Pierre never served on the board of In-Q-Tel nor InnoCentive. This is the only company they co-invested in. Intel, Nokia, Google and Samsung have co-invested with In-Q-Tel.

Please stop insulting and demeaning people who have done way more to help make the world a better place than you or I ever will.

http://mattermark.com/106-startups-who-received-investment-f...

http://www.crunchbase.com/financial-organization/omidyar-net...

Check out http://ronpaulforums.com for activism and news.

Omidyar directly invested in InnoCentive...thrice wrong.

"The Omidyar is an investor in a Waltham, Massachusetts firm called InnoCentive. The company, which markets crowd sourcing technology to “solve problems,” has among its investors IN-Q-TEL, the Central Intelligence Agency’s venture capital firm that brought forth companies like Palantir, which helped develop the very same metadata-mining program, PRISM, that caused Snowden to break ranks with NSA and reveal the agency’s nefarious deeds. Palantir was also part of the smearing efforts mainly directed against WikiLeaks by another U.S. government contractor, HB Gary Federal. Those smears by Pakantir were also directed against Greenwald because of his support for WikiLeaks. But that’s not all.

The connections between Omidyar and the U.S. surveillance structure do not end with IN-Q-TEL. One of the Omidyar Network’s other partners in promoting InnoCentive is Booz Allen Hamilton, the NSA contractor for whom Snowden worked at the NSA station in Hawaii when he made off with NSA’s “smoking gun” classified documents and slides."

http://www.intrepidreport.com/archives/11190

Don't bother for an encore.

Grasping at straws

I like how you haven't posted here in over a year and show up posting a few dozen comments spreading misinformation.

Again, you are wrong but you make little sense. Omidyar invested via the Omidyar Network, which is directly. You are posting sloppy facts / lies all over the place. And you can't even admit you were wrong about the Booz Allen connection.

Great job and welcome back.

Check out http://ronpaulforums.com for activism and news.

Really dependent on whether they possess 9/11 related materials.

But if they in fact possess 9/11 related materials, I totally 100% agree.

I'm happy with what they have reported thus far, but it they have this:

- 9/11 related material;
- Names/Persons/Websites that are controlled opposition, ie. CIA, FBI;
- Anything about CIA mind control slaves, handlers, programs, etc.;

Glenn damn well better publicly release all related information ASAP.

I disagree. Unless their new adventure is focused ONLY

on the snowden documents, regardless of whether they have any "new" documents on 9/11, the truth behind 9/11 must be exposed. We don't need anymore evidence that what we already have. Getting that evidence in front of the brainwashed masses...in the right manner...with the clear understanding that it will rock their world just like it rocked most of our worlds when we first came to grips with it...is required by GG and the others.

EVERYTHING we have suffered through and all the things that keep being put into place "to keep us safe" is predicated on 9/11. Knowing that 9/11 was a planned event...turns that tragic day into the crime of the century. It cannot ever get a free pass.

Nooses need to be ready'd and gallows setup for the execution of the evil criminals that attacked our country. "You are either with us...or you are with the terrorists." Shouldn't be too hard gathering up the terrorists either...they live in country and still fill some of the most powerful positions in government....and over in that country with the "special relationship" tag...Israel and Mossad.

Again, I fully believe Snowden and Greenwald are innocent...

Greenwald on the basis of just being an opportunist who rushes into things without thinking. This has happened before in Greenwald's career, so I don't understand why Edmonds is on the attack based on that. In fact Wayne Madsen and even John Pilger have acted as opportunists in their journalist careers.

Likewise, I fully agree with most folks that Snowden is innocent and had no idea this affair would take the twist it has. I think Snowden got suckered, and mostly trusted Laura rather than Greenwald simply due to many previous blunders at Guardian news. That much has always been clear. Pierre Omidyar on the other hand, is GUILTY and the biggest joke I have ever seen.

He has covered up what nearly looks like insider trading, he is incompetent, he apparently has ties to Dov Zakhiem and on top of this he professes that his new media venture is scandal free!! And apparently he believes he's going to get away with deep sixing the entire Snowden story, so he can please his board members with her "vetting" process. The guy is a CIA Mockingbird operation for sure and his main motive is to make money off the NSA and pass CISPA, on top of the fact he's three strokes short of a brain cell.

Palantir and PayPal,....

...both Peter Thiel companies.

Pattern?

Jackpot....Palantir and Pierre are on the board of Innocentive..

Yes, Pierre's been busy for sure.
We caught him alright. Here's hard evidence that Pierre Omidyar just happens to be a senior partner at Booz-Allen Hamilton, and sits on the board of directors for InnoCentive Incorporated, the nexus where Booz-Allen, Palantir and defense firms like Beoing all combine.
http://mindbodypolitic.com/tag/palantir/
http://www.bizjournals.com/boston/stories/2006/01/30/daily30...

Pierre is just "not interested" in the actions that Booz Allen and Palantir are taking, but he's plenty interested in the profits they're making! Not even eBay's co founders are bothering to defend him. Ninety percent of his profits come from defense firms who would love to steal all our privacy rights away, using fake scandals.

http://pando.com/2013/12/14/team-omidar-world-police-ebay-pu...

Pierre is as good as done! Even if he didn't mean for any of this to happen, he's willingly profiting off our lost privacy rights for sale. And Greenwald I still would say had no idea about this nonsense. InnoCentive and Palantir's little dance is actually not on the NASDAQ stock exchange.

So what's the alternative?

For Pierre and his $250 million investigative journalists NewsCo to disappear? You are conflating loose connections as absolute facts of sinister motives.

Pierre never was involved with BAH and Sal Giambanco is not a board member of BAH. There's no indication I can find that he ever was.

As Glenn tweeted: "If Laura Poitras or Jeremy Scahill or I were ever told "you can't write about this": how many seconds would elapse before we quit?"

EDIT: Can't trust Pando.com, it was funded by Peter Thiel!

Angel investors

It doesn't dawn on him how money flows in the tech industry. That a great deal of successful founders invest in the next generation of startups and that those investors don't get to control who the customers are is not considered. It's just assumed to have been the plan all along. And not just any plan, but part of the Master Plan!

Palatir started out as just another analytics company. Blaming them and their investors for the spying is like blaming Ford and its investors for mechanized warfare.

But then it's much easier to accuse others of sinister intent than it is to do anything constructive. Convincing othets to take meaningful action is hard. No, much more satisfying to throw out an accusation based on a couple of Google searches, 5 minutes on Wikipedia and the weakest logic then pretend to have saved some Daily Paul reader from being fooled.

Only time will tell, that's for sure...

I don't think it's going to "disappear" but I also don't think Laura or anyone else is going into this blind, now. I think as they already commented publicly there are some reservations for sure.

What is most alarming of all is Omidyar's right hand man, Salvadore Gambianco still sits on Booz-Allen Hamilton Holdings which is the owner of defense firm Booz-Allen. And that he has no qualms about continuing to profit from these ventures.

As the press is sure to learn, Gambianco is still at Booz-Allen and Pierre has ties to them directly. So there is a conflict of interest, for sure that was established. However, even with all this it is likely Peter Thiel is smearing Omidyar with a lot of this too. It could be a case where he is no longer really involved with Booz Allen, they're just making it appear that way. Yet only time will tell and certainly as everyone notes, nobody will continue with this if the Snowden leaks gets tainted or suppressed. In my opinion, I wouldn't blindly trust either Thiel or Omidyar after what's uncovered here.

Maybe you are wrong?

Maybe this news startup will be a good thing.

Sal Gambianco is not on the board of Booz Allen. And he's not in their leadership database and is not on the site from 2010-now according to the Internet archive. There are zero links about this except the Rense article by Yoichi Shimatsu.

All this stuff you think is just baseless speculation. People in everyday life don't act the way you are alleging.

Oh no, Salvatore is still there...

No, Salvatore Giambanco is very much still on the Board for Booz Allen Hamilton. He sits in the shareholder position along with such notables as Dov Zakheim and John Mcconnell.

Evidently this has a very strange dynamic, because the press is going to find out about these conflicts of interest at InnoCentive. I didn't wish to believe it but, Omidyar has been exposed now as even potentially committing a crime. Insider trading is a crime.

What gives me pause, is how there's actual employees of Omidyar who have a revolving door with Booz Allen. And even financial ties to Dov Zakheim. That only proves that like with Paypal, he is directly profiting off the actions of companies like Booz Allen and In-Q-Tel. To then exclaim to the public, that his new company will be "transparent" is what beggars belief.

You are wrong.

Philip Odeen, a member of the Board of Directors of Booz Allen, was appointed as a Director of Globant SA on December 10, 2012.

Sal Giambanco is a member of the Board of Advisors for Globant, along with Reid Hoffman, the founder of LinkedIn. The link you posted says Sal's board affiliation is Globant SA.
