(Please spread the word about this enigma! Someone who is not a regular reader of this blog may be able to offer a solution.)
If you're looking for a spooky head-scratcher, you may want to study the mysterious case of BillCaseyHoneyPot. At this writing, I don't know if we are dealing with an important matter or a complete waste of time. All I can do is give you the basics.
A couple of days ago, the Washington Post published an article on a device called Stingray
, a suitcase-sized cell phone tower spoofer meant to help cops gather signals from a suspected miscreant. This technology is controversial for a number of reasons -- for one thing, it also scoops up data from non
-suspects in the area.
Although worrisome in and of itself, Stingray is not the focus of this particular post. What interests us here is the way one person reacted
to the WP article.
That person goes by the handle BillCaseyHoneyPot. He flooded the WP website with a series of lengthy cryptic comments which strayed far from the original Stingray story. These comments, which frequently referenced the CIA and its leaders, were soon "disappeared" by the powers-that-be at the Post. Fortunately, Cryptome
collected many of these communications before they vanished.
BillCaseyHoneyPot may be a hacker, or he may be an intelligence insider. Possibly both. It is also possible that he is simply a leg-puller who has read a lot of stuff about spies. He could even be a total fruitcake.
I'm sure of only one thing: This fellow tries very hard to come across as someone who knows where all of the proverbial bodies are proverbially buried.
Thom Hartmann's website
is one of the very few to take note of BCHP (if I may be allowed to shorten his name). Here's an example of the mystery man's wit and wisdom...
UNITED STATES IS ABOUT TO BE HIJACKED
By it's VERY OWN DEPARTMENT OF STATE
and yet - sits on a 3/4 inch tape - TAKEN by a 12 year old - at a University in Pennsylvania -
WHAT IS ON THAT HELMS TAPE ?
WAPO ?EH ?
DOJ EH? DOS EH ?
I'll tell you THIS MUCH
Henry Kissinger should be on death row -
Porter Goss should be on death row
and I WILL DIE TO LIVE MAKING SURE THIS TRUTH IS BROUGHT FORTH
There will BE NO THIRD BUSH
THERE WILL BE A TRIAL FOR DONALD RUMSFELD
THERE WILL BE A TRIAL FOR RICHARD CHENEY
WHAT IS ON THAT TAPE
ENDS THIS NATION
AND IT'S CURRENCY
That last phrase -- "AND IT'S CURRENCY" -- indicates to me that we are not dealing with an intelligence professional. For one thing, most professionals would know when to use an apostrophe. (Someone who attended the University of Pennsylvania certainly would know that.) More importantly, BCHP sounds like one of those tiresome gold bugs. You know the kind: They are always ranting and raving about the insubstantial nature of paper money, and they often end up pitching an investment in gold mine shares. I stopped listening to those loons decades ago.
Nevertheless, some of BCHP's comments remind me of what Polonius said of Hamlet: How pregnant sometimes his replies are! a happiness that often madness hits on...
Big Bird was a WONDERFUL project though-
the optic was TERRIFIC - I celebrated being able to read a label off of a GOLF BALL From geo synch-
GROVER THOUGH - PUSHED IT -
NO ONE HAS THAT RIGHT
This article on WAPO is a simple focus on triangulation of EM fields -
GROVER - NEVER WOULD HAVE HAPPENED
in my WILDEST DREAMS -
and yet ? GROVER HAS BEEN LIVE - what ? 11 years?
WAPO can't even LEGALLY PRODUCE AN ARTICLE ON GROVER
No - not in this world .......
AMAZING what DEMOCRACY MEANS
when THREAT TO NATIONAL SECURITY INTERFERES WITH FREEDOM OF SPEECH.
I do not believe that "GROVER" refers to Grover Norquist. Context indicates that the term may refer to a new NSA program or technology.
A commenter who seems to know what he is talking about suggests that "Grover" refers to an app called GeoRover
, produced by SAIC. See here
Here are a few more examples...
WE ARE STARRY EYED?
NOW as sure as the SUN WILL CROSS THE SKY
and SK-91 will pass over my head 3 times a day - until it is engulfed -
DOD - YOUR PETTY SK-91 - SKIMPS ACROSS THE SKY
TALK OF WHEN I DIE
I have no idea what an SK-91 is; initial googling provided nothing useful. This next one is particularly fun:
TELL ME - TELL ME -
TELL ME - TELL ME - TORN - MORNING
THAT KEY should SCARE THE LIVING HELL OUT OF CIA
GO AHEAD - PUSH IT
I'll show you a war you can't win
Just for jolly, I googled that "key." The three hits all traced back to this Cryptome story.
I will give a HINT -
LET US TAKE A STEP BACK TO Enron -
If you want PROPER OPTIC - as Phil Mudd would say at CIA - retired....
Sorry Phil- I KNOW this is NOT your message - HOWEVER -
Imagine what Enron did to California - with metered energy resources context to electricity?
Imagine the UNNAMED - YET to be given name - as to ANTI TRUST Sherman - Clayton -
ENTER STAGE LEFT - to this theatrical venue - CIA
Enter Stage RIGHT - United States Department of State
We're going to have a party
Philip Mudd is the former Deputy Director of counterintelligence for CIA. (Wasn't that Ray Rocca's old gig? I wonder if the ghost of "Mother" still roams the halls of the second floor...) Mudd once showed up on Colbert's show and offered the opinion that teevee turns viewers' brains into cotton candy. I kind of like this guy.
PORTER GOSS IS LUCKY TO EVEN HAVE A HEART BEAT
ROMAN is STILL ON THE LOOSE -
PORTER should be VERY GRATEFUL ROMAN is controlled.
The first line seems reasonable enough. I have no idea who "ROMAN" is. (If Gordon Novel were still alive, I might note that "roman" is French for "novel.")
THE BEST PART of all of this?
It's not what is MONITORED - realtime NOW in 2015
WHAT IS THE BEST is what was STORED in 1973
on a 3/4 tape
and FOR WHATEVER REASON - it just happened to be THE TAPE I said as a child - WOW - that looks cool - let's TAKE IT.
Turn your back on your nation? Ed would agree - maybe you're a traitor
but - turn your back on your species ? THAT IS TABOO.
Poor Ed, I keep calling him Eric in game - lol
I'm sure he's okay with it - I KNOW HE IS.
A reference to Ed Snowden? I believe so.
(By the way, Neil Patrick Harris got on my shitlist when he made that "for some treason" remark during the Oscars. But that's a topic for another time.)
There ARE NO LLAMACOINS
however- Zabiullah Mujahid?
STILL SITS - phone UNTRIANGULATED by this what was it ? the ZINGER?
the WHAT ?
oh yeah - Stinger -hahahaha
Triangulation is SO 1998.
I play Treyarch Black Ops Zombies with Snowden REGULARLY - TOUCH IT DOJ - TOUCH IT - GO FOR IT - I'll BREAK OPEN YOUR COMPLACENCY ON NAZI RELOCATION - we ALREADY OWN EVERYTHING - he have taken EVERYTHING FROM Loftus's computer AND MANY INSIDE YOUR FRAIL INSECURE NETWORKS.
"Llamacoin" seems to refer to someone or something in the Bitcoin universe; see here
Zabiullah Mujahid is a spokesperson for the Taliban; he lives in Pakistan. (He has a Twitter account
, although clicking on that link might bring you to the attention of the NSA.) Interestingly, some people think that "Zabiullah Mujahid" is a group name used by multiple people.
"Loftus" probably refers to John Loftus, a writer on intelligence matters (and on Nazis) who is widely thought to have Mossad links.
SISTER BALOCHISTAN -
WHAT WE don't know?
16 people SHOT - doesn't matter....
HOW MANY PEOPLE DEAD?
Though you've seen it?
PLEASE don't TELL A SOUL
US Department of State behind THIS ONE -
Hillary welcomes the BADGE AND AWARD TO TIMMY TOWELL
and TIMMY HEADS TO BALOCHISTAN
I STILL REMEMBER THE TALKS BY THE WATER
WHO KNEW THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE LAND
6 TRILLION in NATURAL GAS?
STILL does NOT MAKE IT'S WAY
HOW BADLY CAN TOWELL HURT BUSH?
DOJ can't TOUCH ME ON IT - why ?
Because - silly- DOS will sit there DAY IN DAY OUT -
saying it just ain't so.
LONELINESS TIMMY - isn't it- a troublesome problem...
How's that POST K Street - LIFE - TOWELL? WORKING OUT?
Hillary gives you an award as you tie a man up to your bed?
HOW IS IT?
HILLARY CAN SUPPORT YOU WITH A Department of State Award - WHILE you are facing CHARGES for DRUGGING A MAN ? TOWELL ? CHAINING HIM TO YOUR BED?
This last bit is particularly boggling. Towell is a former ambassador to Paraguay who, in 2009, was accused of sexually forcing himself on an 18 year-old male. Towell was in his 70s at the time. In case you are wondering how a man that age could overpower an 18 year-old, I should mention that a gun and a machete were involved. Allegedly.
Towell's ambassadorial stint occurred in the Reagan and Bush I administrations. Later, Towell was tied to "the great Paraguay mystery"
which was once a hot topic throughout blogland...
In October 2006, the Cuban news agency Prensa Latina and Paraguayan and other Latin American newspapers reported that Towell was the administrator of a 173,000 acre ranch in the Chaco region of Paraguay on behalf of former President George H. W. Bush, under whom Towell served as U.S. ambassador to the country.
, and here
. Although the Paraguay/Bush allegation was always quite fascinating, I see no evidence of a tie between Towell and Hillary Clinton.
Incidentally, Balochistan is a province in Pakistan where the CIA leases the Shamsi Airfield, from which drone strikes are launched. There has long been an independence movement in Balochistan, and one of the leading figures in that movement goes by the nomme-de-guerre "Baloch Sister."
Let's get back to BillCaseyHoneyPot. Is he a spook? A hacker? A crackpot? Or -- odd thought! -- some combination of all three?
My big problem here is the simple fact that BCHP has not given us a comprehensible linear narrative. Nothing here makes sense. We don't have a story
BCHP has given us nothing but an unorganized collection of intriguing names. His penchant for bizarre linkages and schizy repetition hardly contributes to his credibility.
Right now, I'm leaning toward the theory that we're dealing with a crackpot. But I'm willing to be talked out of that stance. Do you
have any insights into this matter?
This post has attracted some striking commentary which now has me leaning away from the "crackpot" theory.)
(Bill-O, if you're reading these words, here's some advice: Try expressing yourself more clearly. These Dan Brownian games of peekaboo cannot possibly help anyone.)
