CNN reports on revelations that over 5,200 pentagon employees purchased child pornography and after prosecuting a very few officials investigations Operation Flicker was halted due to lack of resources while hundreds and possibly thousands of guilty officials got off the hook.

Back when Anderson Cooper’s show was about “Keeping them honest” he reported on an undercover internet child pornography sting operation which was abruptly halted after 8 months when it was learned that 5,200 targets in the operation were actual pentagon employees.

Cooper drills about Republican Charles Grassley on why the investigation was stopped so abruptly and why thousands were not further investigated after the operation revealed the employees purchased child pornography online.

The investigation, called Project Flicker was launched by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency (ICE) into employees who provide military zip codes in their addresses when purchasing child pornography online.

Congress began running through the list and cross-checking the addresses to find out which of the offenders were actually Pentagon employees.

After only 8 months into the investigation and after cross checking only 3,500 names on the list the investigation was abruptly shut down according to a U.S. senator that Cooper does not name in the segment.

Cooper reveals documents obtained through Freedom of Information (FOIA) requests after the investigation was shut down were able to confirm at least 264 of the employees were confirmed to be on the payroll of the Pentagon, including employees at the Secretary of Defense and individuals at the NSA.

Cooper states that 9 of these people had top-secret security clearances and that only 20% of those 264 people were even completely investigated and even fewer still were ever prosecuted.

After 8 months the entire probe was entirely halted with 1700 names entirely unchecked and investigations into all other individuals suspended.
