That time FBI asset Sabu threatened Privacy International and probed their servers
Logs from Project PM’s internet relay chat, February 2012 — a month before the FBI admitted they’d been running Hector “Sabu” Monsegur since the prior July
Like everything else in the Project PM IRC, which was closely associated with Anonymous, this conversation was logged and published by unknown parties, in addition to being monitored by the FBI itself, along with Monsegur’s FBI-provided laptop. The full transcript from which this is taken can be found on pastebin.
Feb 06 20:03:27 <Sabu> if you’re so fuckin elite what are you doing here trying to convince us we’re doing things that are unethical
Feb 06 20:03:34 <Sabu> how does that look little man?
Feb 06 20:03:36 <Paladine> it is nothing to do with ego it is about being ethical and not exposing hundreds of millions to potential harm
Feb 06 20:03:44 <Sabu> Fuck you and fuck your ethics
Feb 06 20:03:50 <Sabu> we are the anti-thesis to such points
Feb 06 20:03:51 <Paladine> fuck you and your childish games

Feb 06 20:05:07 <m> Sabu: they collaborated in the WL spyfiles release.
Feb 06 20:05:09 <o> do you understand the advantages of embracing a diversity of tactics — we do shit that you cannot do because your hands are tied.
Feb 06 20:05:18 <Paladine> sabu, that is because you are too busy looking up your own ass to notice anytihng else in the world
Feb 06 20:05:27 <o> fact is, you need us as teeth to back you up with whatever phony negotiations you do with the people in power.
