The Zundelsite has massive documents about the two Canadian government agencies I call the "Seamy Twins" - CSIS and SIRC.
CSIS stands for Canadian Security Intelligence Service. It is a civilian spy agency, widely rumored to be utterly beholden to Zionist interests.
SIRC is an acronym for Security Intelligence Review Committee. Ostensibly, it is the watchdog agency that is to keep CSIS honest.
In fact, the two are in bed together, the latter covering and rubber-stamping unsavory business for the former, as a parliamentary investigation a few years ago revealed. This happened in the infamous "Heritage Front Affair" where a government-sponsored infiltrator, Grant Bristow, tried to get white young people to engage in stupid and illegal acts.
CSIS and SIRC are of great interest to many Zundel-watchers because these agencies are supposed to do the hatchet job for the Holocaust Lobby and their fellow travellers in convincing Canadians that Zundel is a "security threat to Canada" so Immigration can deport him to Germany - where he will spend years, if not a lifetime, in prison for "Holocaust denial."
This legal struggle has gone on for years and is not yet quite over - for as the saying goes ( and this goes certainly both ways!) ". . . a lot of roads lead to Rome".
Therefore, a recent security breach, whereby sensitive CSIS documents were found in a dump, are more than of passing interest to us.
As the press reported, this was not the first time that matters of internal security at CSIS were shoddily handled. In 1996 there was a similar incident - not nearly as compromising and telling as this recent one.
Just how irresponsible these agencies are can be seen in yesterday's Letter to the Globe and Mail, written by the man who discovered the first security breach. His name is Brian Zavitz of Toronto.
Here is that letter:
The man who found the CSIS diskette
As the man who found the diskette containing confidential CSIS documents in a Toronto phone booth in 1996, I must say I have found the incident and the aftermath bewildering in the extreme.
First, there was the discovery in itself and then the subsequent handling of the incident by a top-secret government agency that I hadn't even known existed. Neither experience instilled much confidence in the professional conduct of our nation's intelligence affairs.
Second, the account in the Globe and Mail (Nov. 18) leaves several false - even if inadvert - impressions as to my actions. In the most distressing, I am quoted as saying that I "considered selling" the information to foreign agents, and the impression is given that I delayed some time before returning the diskette.
In fact, I phoned CSIS directly, within minutes of discovering what the diskette contained. It is true that in those first few minutes, as the surreal dimension of what I had discovered were dawning on me, my imagination ricocheted around the potential James Bond scenario. But I never would give a moment's serious consideration to betraying my country.
Third, following up on the affair in newspaper accounts, I now learn of another agency, SIRC, which is responsible for overseeing CSIS's operations, and which reports having done a full investigation of the loss. Wait a minute! Nobody from SIRC contacted me, either to confirm facts about the discovery of the diskette or potential leakage of the information it contained, or to check on the conduct of the CSIS agents who made the initial inquiries. Just how thorough and effective was this "full" investigation?
This unexpected involvement with government and public affairs has left me feeling singed and sobered - a little less willing to think that we can trust public servants to do their jobs, and a lot more careful if I should ever have to talk to the press again.
Thought for the Day:
"At one time righteousness was called sanctimonious. At one time no one was so full of themselves as to preach to those who did not come to listen."
