Three cheers for Nonombre who correctly identified Maschke as guilty of treason. At some point we must demand that our Government see him as both a traitor to his former Army Intelligence career, and an overt Treasonous bastard !!!
Further, congrats to Yankee Dog for his follow up. !!!
George's only reply was to repeat his Emporer's new clothes theme. That won't make much of a defense should our government ever get a motivated patriotic prosecutor to place charges against him.
I give these two gentleman full credit for their posts, and I can only hope I inspired this theme some weeks ago when I did so as well.
Re: How to Beat the Preliminary Credibility Assessment Screening System (PCASS)
Reply #1 - Apr 9th, 2008, 7:30pm Treason: The crime of betraying a nation or a sovereign by acts considered dangerous to security. Encyclopedia Britannica
My. Maschke, today on the world-wide web you deliberately and with malice of forethought published a “primer” detailing a method you believe can be employed to successfully defeat the Defense Department’s Preliminary Credibility Assessment Screening Device (PCASS). You published this information knowing full well (and even proud of the fact) that Al Qaeda and others out to murder American soldiers and innocent civilians access your “public service” website on a regular basis in order to glean whatever information they can on American intelligence sources and methods.
You have in the past defended such actions (specifically in your attacks on polygraph) by making a number of statements including the following:
1. Truthful applicants for positions in U.S. government and law enforcement have been “wrongfully” branded as liars and therefore did not get jobs they otherwise “deserved.”
2. Citizens under suspicion of engaging in criminal acts have been subjected to this unfairly intrusive “pseudo-science”
3. Poor, misunderstood sex offenders have had their “privacy” violated.
4. The government is making a “mistake” by putting their trust in polygraph “testing” (quotes are yours, not mine.)
I add that you have said many times on this site, that the purpose of your efforts is to help truthful citizens “ensure” that they pass the polygraph test and that if a few bad people happen upon your site and use your methods to attempt to defeat the polygraph….well, no big deal.
Well allow me to explain what you succeeded in actually doing here today. You see, if you had read the MSNBC article and associated OFFICAL DoD documents carefully, you would have seen that the PCASS device is ONLY authorized for use on NON-U.S. CITIZENS and is being specifically fielded to a combat zone in a time of WAR to ASSIST in ferreting out terrorists, insurgents, and other murderers of U.S. troops and innocent civilians. The government, while admitting the device is not perfect, believes (rightly or wrongly) that it is at least better then “gut feeling”, which is ALL our soldiers have now when dealing in these very dangerous matters.
So what did the brave, ex-patriot George Maschke do? He immediately published on the internet a list on instructions (which he believes) can be used to defeat this technology.
But wait. I find myself confused. You see, George Maschke did not provide this information to some young FBI applicant. You see, the FBI does not test its applicants with PCASS.
This information isn’t being provided to some poor misunderstood sex offender in Cleveland, Ohio. He too will never be tested with PCASS.
My. Maschke, please explain to me how providing this information assists truthful American citizens “ensure” that they pass the PCASS test? Americans will never be tested with this device. Oh, I am sure you could argue that maybe one day they will be, but that is NOT the purpose at this juncture. Please don’t try to say that you just provided this information to terrorists because maybe one day, an American “might” be tested. That would be weak, even for you.
So why did you provide this information? You did not assist a single “innocent victim” by what you have done today. So in the end, who were you attempting to “help” by compromising the safety of our soldiers in this way? Oh, I am sure you will say that you were simply exposing the weaknesses of another “pseudo-science”. Hmmm, you exposed this “pseudo-science by publishing a way to “defeat” it (you believe). Hmm. Isn’t that sort of like publishing a way to easily shoot down an American military helicopter, because you don’t agree with the use of military helicopters?
What you actually did Mr. Maschke (quite stupidly) was “provide aid and comfort to the enemy during a time of war.” That, Mr. Maschke is a rock solid definition of “TREASON”.
You see, based on what you did today, you can no longer rationalize the outrageous behavior you have exhibited for YEARS on this website. You have finally allowed the bitterness of your true colors to bleed through. The truth is, you don’t care about anything other than your ongoing narcissistic “hissy fit” against the “system” that dared deny you what you continue to believe was your “right” to federal employment. In doing so you openly, intentionally, and with GREAT MALICE provided information you in fact HOPE will be used to circumvent American Intelligence sources and methods. My. Maschke, there is no other purpose for this technology. You KNEW that.
Finally, Mr. Maschke, I leave you with a simple question. If you had been one of those Iranian government officials you so like to hang out and drink tea with, and let’s say you disagreed with an intelligence method they employed. So you published a procedure on the internet you were sure could defeat that method, what EXACTLY would your fellow Iranians do to you?????? Hmmm????
So, in the end Mr. Maschke, you are officially, and undoubtedly a traitor, guilty of high treason against your countrymen and potentially responsible for the deaths of innocent people….
