The Shadow of the Kraken


Front Page Magazine makes the connection between Powell's references to Hammer, Scorecard, and the Kraken.

Front Page Mag In 2017, WikiLeaks released numerous CIA documents detailing "Kraken." They included orders to spy on all major candidates in France's 2012 presidential election, including the incumbent at the time, Nicholas Sarkozy. "Kraken" would provide information on each party's election strategy and each candidate's private conferences and ability to influence political decisions.

The CIA uses another program in conjunction with "Kraken," called "Hammer" (or "Hamr" in the files WikiLeaks released), which Powell referenced. "Hamr" spies on protected networks without being detected.

The connection to Wikileaks documents that probably predate the election controversy is enough to take Powell's allegations even more seriously.
