- A newly de-classified document from the
FBI confirms that Attorney General Reno appointed Webster Hubbell to a
secret computer chip project intended to bug America. The document, a
1993 letter from FBI Director William Sessions to Janet Reno, was obtained
from the Department of Justice using the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).
- The FBI letter to Reno states "During
the June 30, 1993 meeting with the National Security Council staff to discuss
the status of the Presidential Decision and Review Directives concerning
key-escrow encryption technology and telecommunications trends, which was
attended by Associate Attorney General Webster Hubbell, the issue of a
recommended solution to the law enforcement access problem, or the digital
telephony issue, was discussed."
- The Department of Justice withheld many
of the documents seen by Hubbell, including a SECRET report from the FBI
on "Requirements For the Surveillance of Electronic Communications."
- The June 30, 1993 letter from Sessions
to Reno states that the Whitewater figure attended a secret White House
briefing on U.S. computer chip policy. In 1993, President Clinton considered
mandatory legislation for a special computer chip called CLIPPER to be
manufactured into all U.S. computers. According to a SECRET FBI report
from 1992, the CLIPPER chip contained a "exploitable feature"
which allowed the Federal Government to intercept and decode computer communications.
- The letter proves Ms. Reno appointed
her trusted Assistant Attorney General Webster Hubbell to over-see the
secret National Security Agency (NSA) encryption chip project in 1993.
According to documents obtained using the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)
Hubbell attended at least one other meeting at the National Security Agency
(NSA) Headquarters in May 1993, along with White House lawyers Vince Foster
and Bernard Nussbaum.
- Ms. Reno has been heavily involved in
the making of computer security policy of interest to China since 1993.
She has also supported a view to monopolize the computer security industry
under the Federal government.
- One 1996 CIA report noted that Ms. Reno
wanted to monitor all American domestic computer communications such as
e-mail, using a technique to secretly intercept and decode any messages.
According to CIA Director John Deutch, the government would mandate all
computers be equipped with a special "back-door" system called
"key recovery". Federal agents would use a secret "key"
to secretly enter a back door and read any computer communication.
- According to the 1996 report to V.P.
Gore by CIA Director Deutch, Ms. Reno proposed an all out Federal take-over
of the computer industry. The Justice Department, proposed "legislation
that would ... ban the import and domestic manufacture, sale or distribution
of encryption that does not have key recovery."
- Prime targets for monitoring would be
foreign governments, banks, corporations, and individuals opposing the
Clinton administration. The keys were to be held by "key recovery
agents" licensed by the Commerce Department.
- According to Congressional investigators,
documents from Hubbell's personal schedule for 1993 show that the Whitewater
figure met multiple times at the White House on a top secret computer chip
project called CLIPPER. Hubbell met with the then National Security Council
(NSC) advisor George Tenet. Tenet is currently the Director of the CIA.
- According to George Tenet's SECRET White
House email, Ron Brown insisted that the Commerce Department be one of
the key holders or be in charge of licensing key holders.
- Hubbell resigned from the Justice Department
in April of 1994. In late June 1994, Lippo boss James Riady met with John
Huang and Bill Clinton during five days of White House visits. Early the
next week, a Lippo unit paid Hubbell about $100,000.
- In December 1994, Hubbell pled guilty
to several felony charges relating to illegal billing in the Whitewater
affair. Webster Hubbell also cited his Fifth Amendment rights to not testify
before the Senate Congressional hearings.
- Two weeks after the Lippo money was given
to Mr. Hubbell, John Huang got his job at the Commerce Department as Assistant
Secretary. Huang's position determined technology transfers that went
to places such as Indonesia and Communist China. Mr. Huang has taken the
Fifth Amendment. His wife, Jane Huang, has taken the Fifth Amendment.
- Commerce/Lippo/DNC fundraiser and secret
cleared John Huang was briefed 37 times on encryption communications by
the CIA while working at the Brown controlled Commerce Department. Immediately
after each briefing, Huang would walk across the street to the Lippo/Stephens
Group offices and make long distance phone calls and send faxes to points
- Key recovery or key escrow is a government
back door system designed to secretly monitor computers. Key recovery
has a big downside, according to a former top Clinton official. Key Recovery
can be abused by foreign powers to perform economic espionage against the
U.S. or worse, to monitor political opponents around the world.
- "Can Key Recovery be used against
dissidents and political opponents?" questioned Admiral William McConnell,
the former National Security Administration Director under President's
Bush and Clinton. "In a word, YES."
- Admiral McConnell is considered the father
of the CLIPPER chip. McConnell ran the NSA under Clinton.
- The role of Webster Hubbell in CLIPPER
raises the specter of economic and military espionage at the highest level.
Orwellian computer chip technology abused by oppressive foreign governments,
targeting their citizens and Americans around the globe.
- In fact, it was the "exploitable"
feature of CLIPPER that worried U.S. government officials. The FBI Director
wrote two major papers to Clinton NSC advisor George Tenet early in February
of 1993. The FBI documents reveal that CLIPPER had flaws which could compromise
all the computers so equipped.
- The FBI Director wrote "This design
means that the list of chip keys associated with the chip ID number provides
access to all CLIPPER secured devices, and thus the list must be carefully
generated and protected. Loss of the list would preclude legitimate access
to the encrypted information and compromise of the list could allow unauthorized
- The CLIPPER flaw worried other U.S. government
officials. NASA decided to decline to use any CLIPPER device. In 1993
NASA Associate Administrator for Management Systems and Facilities, Benita
A. Cooper, wrote "There is no way to prevent the NSA from routinely
monitoring all encrypted traffic. Moreover, compromise of the NSA keys,
such as in the Walker case, could compromise the entire system."
- Please note, Ms. Cooper referred to Soviet
spy John "Walker" who is serving life in prison for disclosing
U.S. Navy secret codes. In 1993 Ms. Cooper did not know of Lippo, Huang,
nor Hubbell but her prophetic prediction was not so remarkable in retrospect.
- The role of Webster Hubbell and the First
Lady at the Rose office law firm goes much deeper than Whitewater land
fraud. During the 1980s, Mrs. Clinton and Webster Hubbell worked on a secret
NSA project for a Rose office law firm client. This too is also clearly
documented by FOIA request. Mrs. Clinton, Hubbell and Vince Foster worked
on a NSA contract for Systematics of Arkansas, a firm then owned by Riady
partner Jackson Stephens.
- Nor is the involvement of the Riadys,
Huang, Hubbell, Foster, and Mrs. Clinton in a White House scandal a conspiracy
theory. In 1993, the Arkansas travel firm Wide World Travel was selected
by Hillary Clinton to replace the illegally fired Presidential Travel Office
staff. Wide World Travel was then owned by the Lippo Group.
- The new FBI letter is clear evidence
that Ms. Reno is in conflict of interest. She is NOT investigating the
penetration of Chinese military agents inside the Clinton White House.
A real investigation of the Chinese intelligence operations involving
advanced U.S. secure communications should involve Webster Hubbell, General
Reno, Bill Clinton and the First Lady.
- However, no FBI agent wishing to keep
his job will show up at Janet Reno's door to ask questions - much less
try to interview Mrs. Clinton. General Reno can only avoid charges of
direct conflict by immediately appointing an independent Special Counsel
to investigate possible treason by the President of the United States.
