Conspiracy Theory: The Leveson Inquiry - A False Front? Phone Hacking In The UK

Updated on November 27, 2012

Hacking All Over The World

The consequences of the allegedly uncovered phone hacking scandal in the UK have been running on for some time now. On 13th July 2011 UK Prime Minister David Cameron appointed Lord Justice Leveson as Chairman of the inquiry with a remit to investigate specific claims relating to phone hacking at the News Of The World, belonging to the News Corporation owned by Rupert Murdoch. For those of you that don't know, News Corporation also owns the Fox News network, a regular broadcaster of alternative and 'leaked' news relating to government conspiracy theories such as Illuminati operations and UFO technology. Could Murdoch have ultimately set himself up as a target via disseminating secret government information whilst the phone hacking scandal provided the perfect opportunity to take action? And an even more significant question, was phone hacking used to access any of the secret government information which Murdoch's network has publicly released in the past?

After the recent take-down Julian Assange's website WikiLeaks, it was only a matter of time before Murdoch would be targeted and the phone hacking which is alleged to have taken place provided the perfect opportunity for the initiation of such an operation to take place. Could the Leveson Inquiry not only relate to the phone hacking scandal which is alleged to have occurred but also be due to inside information which Murdoch's news network has disseminated over the years? It's only a theory... but it makes sense.

On 28th May 2012 former Prime Minister Tony Blair was questioned about his relationship with the media. Whilst Blair was giving evidence a protestor burst into the room and shouted "this man should be arrested for war crimes!" Blair then went on to inform the inquiry that a 'personal vendetta' had been set up against his wife, Cherie. In addition an egg was thrown at the former PM's car as he left the inquiry. Just nine hours prior to this incident news had been released that Julian Assange would find out on 30th May 2012 if he is being extradited to Sweden. However, this does not actually relate to the activity of his website WikiLeaks which, before it was closed down, would disseminate secret government information. He is actually wanted in Sweden for questioning over allegations of rape and sexual assault. However, Assange fears that this will ultimately lead to him being transferred to US where a soldier named Bradley Manning is currently facing charges of handing over government documents to Assange's website WikiLeaks.

One thing is for certain... there has been uproar lately and a lot of it somehow seems to relate to the dissemination of inside information whether this is acknowledged overtly or not. The Leveson Inquiry continues to unfold and develop into conspiracy wtihin conspiracy and has become so siginificant that even a movie is being made about it. There has already been a publicized television series on the topic. It's not just coincidence that many people targeted by governments turn out to be whistleblowers. Both Assange and Murdoch are guilty of releasing secret government information but what about Tony Blair's relationship with the media? Apparently Blair's relationship with Murdoch became 'easier and better' after Downing Street and that Blair had relied on the Murdoch empire for support after newspapers turned hostile towards him after the 2003 invasion of Iraq. As it turns out Blair had actually become Godfather to Murdoch's daughter Grace in 2010. It also turns out that whenever Murdoch visited Downing Street he would enter and exit the property via the back door.

Is Blair really guilty of war crimes? At a mock tribunal in Malaysia in 2010 George W. Bush and Tony Blair were both found guilty of war crimes. However, as this was a mock tribunal the case carries no legal weight whatsoever though supporters believe the symbolic value of the case is beyond doubt.

What really astounds me personally is how strongly the Leveson Inquiry is being taken in comparison with the much older case of UK citizen Gary McKinnon who the US have been trying to extradite for over 10 years for hacking into computer systems owned and operated by US Air Force, US Army, the Pentagon and NASA. McKinnon also claims he found evidence of a gigantic cigar-shaped object suspended above the Northern Hemisphere, evidence that NASA airbrush anomalies out of their images before making them public and a list of off-world (non-terrestrial) officers on documents related to fleet-to-fleet transfers. McKinnon was also interviewed by Project Camelot. However, despite the significance of this case McKinnon, even over 10 years later, has still not been extradited and is currently walking the streets of the UK.

EDIT: It has now been announced that Gary McKinnon will NOT be extradited.

      Notice how the phone hacking scandal hasn't been mentioned at all since the unveiling of the Jimmy Savile sex scandal?!

      Somethgblue, Sounds like HAARP all over again! I wrote about McKinnon before in a hub called 'Hacking The Pentagon' I'm pretty good at the moment too thanks for asking, things are starting to look up :)

      Fitnezz Jim, project Camelot is a disclosure effort by Kerry Cassidy and another guy, I can't remember his name. The project Camelot you are talking about is the 1964 US Army project.

      Is there more than one Camelot? The one I'd read about (and referenced) was a 1960's effort. It seems to me McKinnon is way too young to have been involved in any way with that.

      Many inquiries and press releases are just for show to placate the masses, the most recent that amazes me is the recently released info about a massive array of antennas to be built in Australia and New Zealand to explore space. This array has been there for years and is not news but the public will end up paying for it twice.

      Another is the preposterous claim that NASA has found a planetary body near Neptune or the recent revelation by NASA that rogue planets do exist after fifty years of telling us they don't.

      Have written anything about McKinnon? Good hub haven't heard much from you lately . . . doing allright?
