Wait. It gets worse.

Sting Theory
Geeze, I hate it when satire is indistinguishable from reality.

Two “independent sources” both looked at an email, and both came away from reading that email with the wrong date? How is that possible?

It has been CTH contention for several weeks that a counterintelligence sting operation has been going on within the IC community. False trails of information, seeded by ‘White Hat’ investigators, intended to be captured by ‘Black Hat’ leakers – and delivered to their usurping allies in media. The stories are fake, the leaks are real.

All investigative documents, relating to the witness, are provided to the congressional committees prior to the interviews with the witnesses; or, if the information is classified, each committee member has an opportunity to review the documents via a controlled SCIF environment when no physical copies are allowed as part of the evidence.

The Don JR./Wikileaks email could very easily be part of a ‘sting’. The date was intentionally seeded as incorrect. The resulting story is fake. The leak, however, is real.

Each nugget of disinformation exposes a specific leaker. Each trail used in the sharing of that disinformation exposes the enabling media. The White Hat plants the fake news seed, and then watches to see where, when, how, to-whom, and from-whom, it shows up. [story]

Just discovered that my “Geeze” snark, above, is due to Muggeridge’s Law. (via Ed Driscoll)

    You do realize, Doug, that if anyone from the DNC or the GOPe is willing to run the risk of all the snark and calumny thrown their way and actually visits this here sandbox, you’ve just given them their final Hail-Mary last-weekend-of-the-Senate-election-campaign meme, don’t you?

    I mean, that is just the sort of lunacy they’d latch on to … and expect to be believed.

    ^ Good eye!
    Yeah, held off doin’ this a little, hoping I could snark one of ‘em;
    buuut turns out, had to project.

    Lemme know if we get cited as a source by ABC or CNN.

    that gives me another idea for a PShop.

    This satire site shut down when they realized it was impossible to satirize the left.

    Tom Clancy in one of his novels described this as a canary trap.

    ^ Yeah, it’s an old internal-security technique.
    Prob’ly goes back to primitive man. (Hey, who’s stealin’ my leg of mastodon? I know, I’ll add a little rotten sabre-tooth meat to one portion and turn my back.)

    Plumbers and environmental inspectors use it, too — inject dyes or tracer chemicals into possible leak sources.
