WWII code ´may never be cracked´
BBC, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:US Veteran, 11/23/2012 11:41:49 AM

Experts at intelligence agency GCHQ have asked for help in de-coding a message found attached to a pigeon leg, thought to date back to WWII. The dead bird was found in a chimney in Surrey a few weeks ago. But without more information, the code may never be cracked, according to the BBC´s security correspondent Gordon Corera. The code is as follows: AOAKN HVPKD FNFJW YIDDC RQXSR DJHFP GOVFN MIAPX PABUZ WYYNP CMPNW HJRZH NLXKG MEMKK ONOIB AKEEQ WAOTA RBQRH DJOFM TPZEH LKXGH RGGHT JRZCQ FNKTQ KLDTS FQIRW AOAKN 27 1525/6

It says "Beware the ides of March" or "Who´s John Galt" or "Where´s Waldo" or who cares?

The KEY to figuring it out may be the form used for the msg. They don´t show it completely in the video. It appears to we in English [or American]. The actual code is too short to give you enough for the computers. You must understand that there is a different code used for each letter of the msg. So you do need the code book. And military crypto labs are generally trash-less [everything gets burned, even candy wrappers]. The NSA would keep copies for a limited time and then burn.

I broke it. It´s a "book" code utilising the C-Ration instruction sheet for a cheese souffle made from the canned cheese.

It says: "We are burning artillery propellant charges in an attempt to melt this cheese. Send more ammunition. Thank the Yanks. Tom Adkins, HM Sgt. Atllry."

It looks like the "spy numbers" codes I used to hear on short wave in the 1980´s. Best guess is they were coming from Florida or Cuba. They were 5 number groups spoken in Spanish. Never was able to make sense of them.

Probably from a long-lost one-time pad. Good luck cracking that (Although the NSA could probably do it if they wanted to waste a few trillion CPU clock ticks on it).

A one time pad without the key (assuming the key was longer than the message--no repetition) will never be broken. All a supercomputer can do is give all possible solutions--a really, really, REALLY big number of solutions, most gibberish but a HUGE number of clear-text too.

for instance:

fred go jump in a lake
that dinner was lovely
we will attack at dawn
who let the dogs out??

...ad infinitum

Worth reading, ´´The ULTRA Secret´´, the story (long after the war) of the codemakers and codebreakers in Bletchley Park, in England. The modern military organization needs abilities beyond those of a submariner or a pilot. There are reasons for the existence of the No Such Agency in Fort Meade. This account is one reminder.

When U.S. combat deaths drop to zero
MSNBC, by Steve Benen    Original Article
Posted By: US Veteran- 4/1/2014 12:17:51 PM     Post Reply
The United States has been at war in Afghanistan longer than any conflict in our history. Regardless of what one might think of the war in terms of strategic value, it has been a brutal, deadly conflict, seemingly without end. But as U.S. forces prepare for the conflict’s end, we can already see the changes to U.S. casualty rates. Indeed, the month that just ended last night, March 2014, marked an extraordinary milestone: as Hayes Brown noted, it was “the first time in more than a decade that there were zero U.S. fatalities among American troops engaging in combat.” In Iraq, the

Bay Bridge´s $9.4 million
temporary bike path to be razed

The Bay Area Toll Authority spent $9.4 million to build a temporary entrance so the Bay Bridge´s bike path could be ready when the new eastern span opened to traffic in September. And now - after less than seven months - the half-mile-long connector is being torn down to make way for a new, permanent gateway. That puts the cost to provide temporary bike and pedestrian access to the bridge at about $47,000 a day.

Everyone knew there would be some gun owners flouting the law that legislators hurriedly passed last April, requiring residents to register all military-style rifles with state police by Dec. 31. But few thought the figures would be this bad. That 50,000 figure could be as little as 15 percent of the rifles classified as assault weapons owned by Connecticut residents, according to estimates by people in the industry, including the Newtown-based National Shooting Sports Foundation. No one has anything close to definitive figures, but the most conservative estimates place the number of unregistered assault weapons well above 50,000, and perhaps

Disney Channel child star Mia Talerico, 5,

Police are investigating death threats against 5-year-old Disney Channel actress Mia Talerico. The "Good Luck Charlie" starlet has been the target of anonymous harassment and threats against her life posted online. "Good Luck Charlie," one of Disney´s most popular shows, recently made headlines for featuring the first openly gay couple on the network in a Jan. 26 episode. A lesbian couple was worked into the story line — and managed to cause outrage among conservative parenting groups — but the uproar will only be around one episode. It is unclear if any of the threats against Talerico were made in

The journalists at ABC News offered yet another high profile experiment to terrify the parents of America into not owning guns. In an hour-long special on Friday night, Diane Sawyer and David Muir hid pink guns at the playground of an elementary school in an effort to see if young girls would play with them. Unsurprisingly, the young children did. The Young Guns program also included the obvious revelation that firearms shouldn´t be concealed in backpacks and with candy. Diane Sawyer narrated, "For more than a decade, there has been a powder pink gun on the market." Referencing the location of

The Fire Island resort of Saltaire wants to seize private property — using taxpayer money. World War II vet Frank Whitney is locked in a legal battle with officials who want to take his Saltaire Market grocery by eminent domain in order to build their own updated version. And the upscale village may increase property taxes to do it, raising as much as $2.5 million to buy and rebuild the market, which was damaged during Hurricane Sandy. Whitney’s family says it wants to fix the store — the village’s only commercial property — and has the money to do so, but it accuses

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
