Pentagon employees, some with top secret security clearances, busted for child porn

I am republishing this post from July 27, 2010 in view of Pizzagate, which gives this post a new significance.

When you read this post, just remember that a pedophile is defined as an adult with “sexual fondness for and activity” with children, i.e., minors below the age of consent. In other words, the definition doesn’t require that there be sexual abuse of a child; sexual attraction to children is definitive. That in turn means that the Pentagon employees busted for child porn are pedophiles.

Remember the news back in April 2010 that, while the economy crashed, senior staffers at the federal government’s Securities and Exchange Commission were spending hours surfing pornographic websites on government-issued computers while they were being paid to police the financial system?

Now comes news that employees and contractors of the Pentagon are buying and watching child porn on the taxpayers’ dime. Not only is porn-watching on government computers illegal, it is against the law for all Americans to purchase and view child pornography. Worse still, some of the Pentagon child porn creeps have high-level security clearances, which makes them national security hazards because their sexual perversion makes them vulnerable to blackmail.

On July 23, 2010, Dana Hedgpeth of the Washington Post reports that “Federal investigators have identified about 20 Pentagon employees and contractors accused of buying and downloading online child pornography and in some cases used their government-issued computers to view the illegal material.”

According to a 94-page report released by the Defense Department’s inspector general’s office, some of those involved possessed top-secret security clearances and worked for such divisions as the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the National Security Agency (NSA) and the National Reconnaissance Office. Those agencies deal with some of the government’s most sensitive intelligence and defense work.

The number of Pentagon employees investigated was not disclosed in the report, but a Pentagon spokeswoman said the probe involved about 20 people who had an “affiliation with the Defense Department” as full-time employees, former military members or contractors. Some of those people have been prosecuted, and some of their cases were dropped for lack of evidence. Other cases remain open.

The cases are part of a wider probe, Operation Flicker, which was started by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement four years ago and which has identified more than 5,000 people who subscribed to online child pornography websites.

The cases detailed in the new report include one involving an employee of Oracle Corp. who had a top-secret clearance and worked on a contract for the National Security Agency. The man subscribed to various child pornography websites and made 21 purchases. After authorities started investigating him, the report said, he attempted to tamper with computers at his office. He was put on administrative leave with pay. He later fled to Libya but was arrested and extradited to the United States.

Another case involved a government employee at the National Defense University in Norfolk who made two purchases from a child pornography website. He pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography and was sentenced to five years in prison.

It is illegal to access pornography with a government computer.

UPDATE (Feb. 12, 2017):

Five years later, the Boston Globe discovered the Pentagon still had not investigated as many as 1,700 of the cases involving employees suspected of child-porn.

  1. here’s an article that details an interview about “pizzagate” and it’s connection with virginia and DC:
    “Pizzagate: Virginia, DC Areas Hubs for Missing Children”
    http://sgtreport.com/2016/11/pizzagate-virginia-dc-areas-hubs-for-missing-children/
    quotes from the link:
    “the state of Virginia has by far the highest number of missing kids per capita in the nation at 0.00467.”
    “This means that a child in Virginia is about 2.67 times more likely to turn up missing than in second ranked Florida. Most of the states run about 0.0010, making Virginia an 4.67 to 1 outlier.”
    “Curiously, almost all states — except for Virginia — provide photos of nearly all of the missing children. Of 392 missing in Virginia, 202 have no photos.”
    the pentagon, or should I say “pentagram”, is located in virginia….coincidence?

    • I wonder if they have a “Boy’s Town” in the area too? They mentioned in the ‘raw footage’ of the Franklin cover up that the one guy would get some victims from the kids at Boy’s Town. When we were growing up, there were a couple of instances that I know of where someone tried to abduct kids, my sister for one, and then a friend’s sister a few ‘hoods away. And you didn’t hear ANYTHING about it in the news, local or otherwise. Ditto rapes in the ‘hood. This stuff is covered up a LOT, especially in the burbs. They want to make things look tidy. A former operator for emergency services said you wouldn’t believe the stuff that isn’t ever reported.
      People also don’t mention the fact that tons of foster kids end up missing every single year.

  2. ” it is against the law for all Americans to purchase and view child pornography. ”
    Since it’s ALSO illegal to sell ,create or distribute Child porn,could they be brought up on a separate charge of being COMPLICIT in distributing Child Porn since they had the ability to apprehend those who were dealing in it,but DIDN’T. I think THAT’D be a Felony,too.

  3. This is not surprising. I have a feeling the UK pedophile rings and the pedophiles here are intertwined. I also have the feeling soon that these horrific operations by the lowest of the low are going to make an error somewhere and a huge trafficking operation will be revealed. These shadow operations of such heinous, abberant, abusive behavior cannot survive forever. I pray all the victims of child sexual abuse have their day in court and get the justice they deserve!

  6. Demonic forces are all around us. People have died for coming too close to the truth. These satanic people are a global cult. Their practices range from pedophilia, torture, young blood transfusions, cannibalism, organ transplantation, experimentation and other heinous acts that are unimaginable.

    Place your faith in God and not man. We must all double our efforts to bring this inhuman behavior to light. The ring masters hide in plain sight. Evil, powerful people with unlimited financial resources to feed their satanic greed. While the recent sting operations are a good start, we haven’t scratched the surface of the worst villains. Keep your children safe, teach them well, and pray.

  7. The recent influx of news of child pornography and Pizzagate sure makes me curious as to where all those children from Mexico and Central America sent here by their parents disappeared to. They even admitted they lost many when the massive exodus from their own countries began.

    • Thank you, MomOfIV. I saw that this morning and considered posting about it. It is heartening to see that not all Hollywood types are depraved. Maybe Kutcher would shine a light on Pizzagate, but I doubt it because the MSM have all declared it to be “fake news”. 😦
