NSA: DoJ Staff Attorney Has Alerted Bancroft Associates

This is evidence for the Grand Jury. DoJ Staff Attorneys have alerted Bancroft Associates about this information.

There is a confirmed, ongoing communication between DoJ Staff Attorneys and the Bancroft staff of former-US Asst. Attorney General Viet D. Dinh and others.

Is Gonzalez hoping to get retroactive changes to Geneva because OLP drafted memos permitting violations of Geneva? Ref

The e-mail relates to a discussion between Bancroft and DoJ Staff.

Here is a link to the Yahoo e-mail, which has been lawfully intercepted:


This is related to a communication between Bancroft and DoJ.

We leave it to the Grand Jury to decide whether it warrants a broader review, and which specific names within the e-mail you may wish to subpoena during your investigation.

  • What is the reason for the concern?

  • What prompted the e-mail?

  • What is the relationship between the Bancroft employee, the DOJ Staff, and the recipient?

  • Was there some sort of alarm and concern?

  • Did the employee at the firm not realize that the e-mail had been compromised lawfully using methods which the NSA cannot detect?

  • How does it feel to have your personal information and private communications monitored and discussed?

  • Does it feel enjoyable to know that the Grand Jury could spend quite a bit of time reviewing this e-mail and contemplating its contents?

  • Did you have a reason for discussing the information at this time; or could it not wait until you met at a "more convenient" time where you would not have your communication monitored?

  • Do you like being watched?

  • Does it give you pleasure to know that your communication is being sifted through, mined, and explored by personnel which the NSA cannot control?

  • Do you understand that this man could read this link?

  • Do you think David should know?

  • Maybe you would like to talk to David?

    Ooops, what about the other e-mail?

  • Did you feel better?
