Suspicious activity points to large-scale surveillance of D.C. phones
(INTELLIHUB) — An unusual amount of suspicious cellphone activity in the nations capital has given rise to concerns that a rogue entity is listening to the communications of U.S. government officials and foreign diplomats, according to a shocking new report in the Washington Free Beacon.
According to the report, officials with the Department of Homeland Security have noticed a large spike in suspicious activity on a major cellphone carrier which has raised red flags over concerns that the cellphones in and around Washington D.C. are being tracked by an unknown entity.
“Mass amounts of location data appear to have been siphoned off by a third party who may have control of entire cell phone towers in the area, according to information obtained by the Free Beacon. This information was compiled by a program that monitors cell towers for anomalies supported by DHS and ESD America and known as ESD Overwatch,” read the Free Beacon report.
“Cell phone information gathered by the program shows major anomalies in the D.C.-area indicating that a third-party is tracking en-masse a large number of cellphones. Such a tactic could be used to clone phones, introduce malware to facilitate spying, and track government phones being used by officials in the area,” it continued.
Unbelievably, a source for the article also claimed that while the attack was first seen in D.C. it has seen been noticed by other sensors across the country. On top of that, sensors close to both the White House and the Pentagon were specifically targeted.
A report by the contractor ESD Overwatch, which was viewed by the Washington Free Beacon, makes clear that this was indeed a hack with the specific purpose of tracking the large scale subscriber base of one of the nations biggest cellphone carriers.
“Information gathered by the program shows a massive uptick in efforts to identify and track cellphones. The third-party hacker appears to be identifying phones as they connect with local cellphone towers and recording this information.”
This truly astonishing revelation comes at a time when President Trump is openly under large-scale attack by elements within the deep state who have continually leaked classified material to a compliant mainstream media dedicated to taking out the rightfully elected President of the United States.
Obviously this report leaves many unanswered questions, most importantly who is conducting the cellphone surveillance and is the Trump White House a specific target?
Consider this. We now know that cell phones in the Washington D.C. area are being tracked by a rogue entity yet the mainstream media has largely ignored this key information, apparently opting to leave the American people in the dark about such an important development. One has to wonder if this isn’t elements of the deep state once again targeting the president while the press does their “job” and stays silent….
