This comic has a thread on (ATS) here:
ATS History: COINTELPRO and “WhispersInTheDark”


Is the ATS Conspiracy Forum COINTELPRO? part 1

The 3 Amigos, co-owners of From left to right: Skeptic Overlord,  ATS Tech Wiz; Simon Gray,  ATS founder; Springer,  ATS Biz tycoon.

What is ATS?

ATS – is the largest conspiracy discussion forum on the Internet. ATS has nearly 60,000 registered members and over 2 million individual posts!


From the 1920’s to 1976, the FBI orchestrated a number of COunterINTELligence PROgram aimed at disrupting political dissidence. In 1976 the Church Committee investigated and documented the FBI’s involvement in infiltrating the US Communist Party, the Ku Klux Klan, the Black Panthers and the Nation of Islam. The FBI claims to have stopped all COINTELPRO activities in 1976…Conspiracy theorists disagree, claiming that other intelligence departments immediately began conducting COINTELPRO activities similar to the FBI’s.

Conspiracy theorists, being by nature paranoids often accuse the ATS forum itself of being a COINTELPRO operation. Such topics are common and usually appear every month or so without affecting the board in any substantial way. However, in August 2003 a series of cryptic posts by a mysterious member going by the handle WhispersInTheDark (WITD) sent the whole forum community in an uproar – almost triggering the end of ATS.

On August 4th WITD posts:

Chaos on Capital Hill.
The football has been replaced by a dummy for the dummy.
Doves are fighting but hawks are regrouping.
The commander-in-chief takes a little time off. A trip. Out-of-the-hill. Just like before 9-11.
Who has the football? Why?

Rumors. Whispers. Fears.

Watch Jakarta.

as originaly posted at

16 hours later in Jakarta…

Exactly as predicted by WITD! Had Whispers prophesized the Marriott Hotel Bombing?

to be continued…

Was WITD a high level deep throat?

The ATS forum surged with activity.

Could WITD have simply edited his post after the Jakarta events?
ATS’ forum software duly records each post edit… WITD’s post had none.

Eventually an overzealous ATS member alerted the FBI.

The FBI declared the post an elaborate hoax.

Forum Admin Skeptic Overlord explains:

took advantage of a weakness in our forum software thus enabling him to edit his post directly in the database, thus, not leaving an edit mark.

However many members were not convinced in particularly one Mod, the now legendary DragonRider (DR). Here are some of his discoveries…

  1. DR and 2 other ATS members swear they had seen the post before the bombings.
  2. WITD knew the FBI had been contacted before the ATS proprietors.
  3. Both IPs logged by WITD were traced to DoD Intelligence networks.
  4. The CIA knew about the Jakarta bombing** 72 hours before it happened. (So WITD could have been legit!)

Eventually DR was deModed and banned from ATS. He moved on to the Black Vault Forum and the now defunct Shadow Confederacy Forum. For the next 2 years the WITD subject was ATS taboo.

Without a doubt, there are COINTELPRO agents visiting and posting on ATS. Echelon *** keywords are frequently used on the forum, and it’s bound to have attracted Intel agencies interest. WAS the WITD incident covered-up by one or more of the 3 amigos? Is ATS itself a CONITELPRO?

    Alright. Im tired of the rumors.

    Dragonrider was banned from the ATS forums for sending sexually explicit pictures of himself through the u2u system. Ive seen the photos myself.

    Yes, he had great contributions to the forums. He was a execellent author. Doesn’t change the fact that he was a pervert. Sending photos to one of the owners wifes. His banning was well deserved.

    Oh, and btw, the WITD incident was in fact a hoax by the administration.

    ATS is comprised of about the most uptight senior staff I have ever experienced. There is no room for error in their TOS because the slightest violation could mean eternal death of your IPs access.

    I dogged on skeptic overlord one day and have been permanently banned. I have tried to rejoin under different names after my IP changed several months after the supposed violation. No success.
    touchy touchy these creators of ATS…lol

    I’ve just had a bad experience w/ ATS. I’ve contributed a lot to the Paul is Dead thread. Right after another member commended me on my “professionalism,” I was banned! I guess it was fine as long as people thought PID was a “joke,” but as soon as people started taking it seriously, *someone* wanted to shut me down. It’s just good, old-fashioned truth suppression, IMO.

    I can vouch for ATS being a being government sponsored enterprise.

    I am a former member, and I can tell you, is a highly censored, highly edited, website with an agenda that is the opposite of what it books itself as being. AS a member, you risk serving this agenda every time you post.

    I have personally witnessed, private messages called 2you2’s
    altered and edited to serve a moderator’s agenda.

    I am glad these websites are stopping to pop up. Any educated observer should immediately understand ATS is a government front and COINTELPRO operation to track and silence alt theories and facts. Clearly layout Barack Obamas agenda and you get banned. Question COINTELPRO operations, you get banned. Say something a moderator disagrees with, you get banned. Point out COINTELPRO members you get banned.

    Google BBQ Stoppers Above Top Secret, there are email correspondence from mark and skeptic overlord trying to cover their butt.

    I also have serious questions about Alex Jones, he has flat out lied manipulated stories on air. He even went so far to set up a fake voicemail machine where he called the white house and left a blistering message fighting the NWO on the white house answering machine. The problem is, there is no white house answering machine and there never was. Not to mention Alex Jones background, family in the FBI? Google Alex Jones gets his ass kicked – try to verify story.

    You have to change your MAC address, otherwise you will still be shown as the original violator no matter the IP you have..
