Egypt “Police” force woman to strip naked or be arrested

Now that the revolutionary fervor of the Arab Spring has come down to a simmer most of the news is focusing on elections and the increasing possibility that Muslim Brotherhood candidates could take control of the country. Absent are the reports of human rights violations and one would be hard pressed to find the little bit of news that brings it to light. Those stories, when they do make it to the airwaves, are usually on Arabic only websites. Effectively this cuts off a good amount of the free world from following the stagnant (and most likely regressive) human rights policies in action in post revolutionary Egypt.

Last month on Egypts “90 Minutes” this clip was aired of a woman being confronted by a “police” officer. To date the man has yet to be identified. If he was/is a member of law enforcement than ID’ing him should not be hard. At a certain point the woman is asked by the officer to remove her undergarments. When she refuses the “officer” says he will be taking her away to the ministry of justice. This video has been brushed aside for two reasons. Firstly, since the man can not, and has not yet been identified, critics claim that he must not be a law enforcement officer of any kind. Secondly, towards the end someone appears in front of the camera making a funny face. The conclusion to date is that the video must be inauthentic. But from what we have learned about the human rights violations post-Mubarak this is still quite tame. It makes one wonder if it is really being brushed aside because what we in the west view as a violations of rights is not viewed the same due to the gender of the victim.

The encounter starts about 1:30 mark and continues until around the 4:00 mark. You be the judge.

UPDATE: I was cleaning out my files, folders, unnecessary bookmarks, etc and came across this older CNN report here. Even then the women were asking “What happened to the revolution we started in Tahrir Square?”. I can answer that. Activities in Tahrir (Cairo) and Alexandria were sort of like a democracy high school party. When the cops break it up and every one is forced to leave what are you left with? Vomit patches on your mom’s new carpet. The participants of the party swear they can relocate the party and continue on. Yet, have you ever made it to the rendezvous? The fun people went their own way and all that is left is a gathering of lonely followers with no clear direction; you mind as well entertain yourself and puke on the new carpet at the new party location.

Tutorial: How to expose an “Anonymiss”

DISCLAIMER: This is for research and teaching purposes only. I am not making any claim or accusation that this person is involved in the despicable acts that Kos contributors have partaken in over the past year. This is strictly an example of how to use a personal blog to lift the veil of anonymity.

When someone creates an online persona starting with the intention of remaining anonymity it usually isnt a big deal. However, when they are politically motivated they are usually doing this for the purpose of starting shit and harassing people. So here is a quick tutorial on how to use the smallest clues to unmask some of these losers. Ive chosen someone who calls themselves “Anonymiss”.

If you have noticed the “anonymiss” tag has slimed its way over to Daily Kos some time ago. Now we know the group has more than one member but for all intents and purposes we will focus on just one. Anonymiss in DC seems like a good place to start and that is what we will use for an example. So in a few easy steps I’ll show you how this is done

1) The first thing we see in the side bar is that she is a Daily Kos fan. Great, we’re on the right track. Plus her blog postings include her adventures of going to see the inauguration of Obama and random light slams against those who are not liberals. Moving on…

2) Dont bother starting at the most recent entries. Go to the earliest. This is something that I learned from my homegirl Mandy Nagy (aka Liberty Chick). Start at the beginning and work your way forward. It gives you a great picture of who you are dealing with and the chances of missing an important detail is greatly reduced. So, lets go to the first month of the blogging, December 2008 entitled “Wrong Number, Anyone?”; this is where we learn her identity and is chock full of clues. Ok, see picture below, this is where you should be.

3) In this post she is aggravated because she has received two voice-mails from people that are complaining about the biased news coverage. She makes it a point to stress that she is not in the news business. As she states, “Keep in mind that my work has NOTHING to do with the Middle East. At all. Zip. Zero. Nor am I a reporter.” One person complains about the covering of the ongoing conflict with the Palestinians. The second is a larger clue. So lets take her own words again.

“Fortunately, the next message happens to be from a much more rational guy from some newspaper in Pennsylvania who was wondering if I could help him get some more information about an article “I” ran on the Treasury.”

Now we know that there is an article in December 2008 that has a byline (author’s name) on it that is either the exact same name as hers or at least close enough to mistake her for the author. Do you see how easy this is yet? She then confirms that the callers that found their way to her voice mail were actually looking for the Associated Press.

“And then I call the Associated Press, who tells me that they’re really sorry, but people must be misdialing my number, which is similar to the number for the Business Desk.”

And then again she confirms it. She returns the call to one gentleman and tells him:

“I manage to say ‘Hi, I just wanted to let you know that you called and left me a message about an Associated Press article yesterday but you had the wrong number.'”

4) She has given us everything. Finding out her name now couldn’t be easier. At this point you swing over to Google and look for Associated Press articles from December 2008 with a female author. You will find the article on the Palestinian conflict as well as the article on the Treasury. Go ahead and check, I’ll wait. Ok are you back? Got the name? Great, now enter that name into Google and see if there is another person with the same name in Washington D.C. Well I’ll be damned, there are only two people in the country with this name and yes, one is actually in DC while the AP writer just has a DC number.

Great Job! You just unmasked an “Anonymiss” No hacking needed. Now you know her name and where she works. You used information that she freely provided. Bonus: Afterwards you can check out their friends and see what they are saying. Heyyyy, wait a minute, they actually tweeted a picture of her with the caption? “Not so anonymous now are ya?” Yes they did.

END NOTE REGARDING THE REAL ANONYMOUS AND ANONYMISS: I am not targeting any real member of Anon or an of those who are the real Anonymiss. I am targeting the political hacks, the paid political operatives, who were such cowards that they decided to use illegal means to intimidate their political opponents and used YOUR good name to hide behind. I am talking about people like Neal Rauhauser of Progressive PST. New fags were the cancer that was killing /b. Rauhauser is just one example of the poison that is killing ANON. Ask him yourself and he’ll just attempt to Triforce so he can prove that he is a legit. The Anonymiss of the Daily Kos are not legit; Ditto on the other ANONS teamed up with Daily Kos. The sharp anons are picked up on his fake profiles and his lame attempts to co-opt Anon and labeled him as COINTELPRO and called him out. Congrats, you were spot on.

Dont feed the trolls :) My rapsheet-My Way

No reason for a long back story. Twitter trolls that have no life outside of harassing people online said they were going to release my personal info. Awesome. Nothing about me is private. See my “Contact” page.

They hinted that they would release my 12 year old criminal record. Cool. My myspace profile talks about it extensively. Before deleting my Facebook profile I discussed it there too. Anyone who has talked to me once knows my story. Its a story of a wild kid who crashed and burned. Frankly, I love the story and sometimes even embellish it a little.

But its something that I have talked about openly for 12 years. So they want to have some fun and release it as a bombshell? I really hope they stimulated the economy by paying an online service for my “public” records. But, I dont want them to have too much fun. So here is the spreadsheet that shows all of my charges (my entire criminal record) from 1999-2000. By the way, that was also when I was a liberal and thought the world owed me something 🙂 You grow up and you wise up. But not if you remain a liberal.

Did the idiots think I was going to be shaking in my boots? This is the butt of every joke I make about myself. What is interesting is that they took a bluff I made seriously. I said I would release the SSN#’s of the Occupy Wall Street crowd. As much as I disagree with that movement I would never release anyones personal info; especially not SSN#’s. Furthermore, no one has that info nor are any of their opponents even looking for it. But it was an interesting experiment. I waited to see who would react. Interestingly enough the real #OWS crowd didn’t react and attack. Rather the criminals on the left whom are the usual suspects did. It worked perfectly. And yes, Ron Brynaert, you’re one of them. Trolled softly 🙂

Peace.

PS-Every good experiment has a variable. Did you guys see how easy it was to isolate a few of you? You reacted emotionally. Im a tactician; emotion has no part in my actions. That is why you fail.

Update For Context: 9/21/17

This post is old. But new visitors need some context. This was directed at a specific audience at a specific time. Twitter trolling is pretty incessant. And sometimes it gets to the point where folks will go to the extent of sending loaded fake links from support@twitter that are designed to compromise a persons computer (opening reverse TCP). And that is what started all of this. These one-track mind folks fell into the same trap they set for others. While I did not execute a reverse shell (because that is highly illegal – even though they didnt care and did just that!) I did use a link to gather their info to pass to Twitter. Notice, in the end, I’m still here-Again.

Notice that I am the stalker for trying to stop them from using reverse shell execution on targets in an attempt to hijack systems and logins:

I then baited them by having someone use a link shortening service that (used for marketing and analytic) would grab info that Twitter would need. At the end of the original post I referenced this tweet/link re SSN#’s of OWS folks being dumped. It never happened. It was ruse. Whomever clicked it were the same ones actively involved in the current (at that time) campaign. When this was posted any visitor to this post knew exactly what I was talking about. But we have new visitors. (Welcome!)

And precisely nothing happened. Ever. The Occupy Wall Street folks were actively waging illegal campaigns digitally. While they were doing that news came out that thier info (paid protesters) was obtained and in the hands of leakers speaking with media. So they were already in panic mode. I could go on and post other convos but I think you get the point. So that is the context. I wont bore you with anymore screen caps. This update is in part due to the irrational and violent nature of Trevor S Valle’s when asked to clarify comments that didn’t make any sense. See that post here

PPS: Remember when Barret Brown threatened me? He was a public figure too. Is he out of jail yet? I am not going anywhere. Ever.
