I got a new e-mail from JC today.
Quote:
I know that you don't know Saul.

I also know that you are not a member of the NCS. And yet, you know something about Red Monday...



If you are receiving this e-mail, chances are you got a red envelope from a man resembling a secret service agent in Ontario, California. Either that, or you were one of the several hundred who accessed the drop-point through the leak on Digg's homepage Wednesday morning. (btw special thanks to echelon/3 and NSMike for burying the story so quickly... you infocontainment guys are a lifesaver.)

Either way... you were not supposed to know about this.

But now, I suppose I should congratulate you... since you've accessed some sensitive information relating to Red Monday, you are now considered a junior informant for the NCS. Any and all communications between us should be consistered strictly confidential. We need to keep a lid on this.



Many of you have been e-mailing me over the past week.. asking questions. Like "what is Red Monday?" I know some things... but I'm not prepared to give up any key details until I know you can be trusted. If you want to know more about the Event, then you're going to have to gather some intelligence for me. Thsi is a pure OSINT assignment. I need people who are quick and smart, people with some ingenuity... people who I can TRUST to help me investigate this. It could be the most significant event in 6 years...

Write me back, and type "Sayid Jarrah" if you comply, or "Desmond Hume" if you are unable to accept...



***
Now, onto business...

For those of you who were asking before.. I managed to retrieve that last bit of phone call from log 92547:
http://www.red-monday.com/phonelogs/92547-recovered.mp3

Not much there, but the symbol I was talking about is some sort of character I pulled out from a corrupted image file. I have no idea what it is, or what it means, so echelon/3 is working on it. She's good at this sort of stuff. But if anyone has any ideas, by all means... throw it out there.

That's all for now. I should be in touch again October 15th.

PS, shut up n00bs, I don't sound like a girl.


EDIT: ROT13. I'm stupid.

Also, you guys trying to crack the code... You obviously didn't "tri" enough. Look up Trifid Cipher and then email me once you've broken the messages. By the way, ROT13 is about as easy as it gets with encoding... if you don't get this, than you really have no business working in the cryptography industry. Maybe you need to ask the guys on the devshed Security and Cryptography Forums next time. lol.

I'm sorry if I can't say what Red Monday is right now.
All I can say is that I'm researching certains members of the Saudi Royal Family history to try and identify who the prince is.
We believe it's Khalid Bin Sultan but we've not been able to confirm it yet.


So want me to email him back?

Not sure of the context (haven't read through the thread), but a decent nubmer of those names seem like they're pulled from popular TV Dramas. I recognize a few from Lost, 24, and Heroes...maybe Gray's Anatomy.

Fairly "rare" names like DL Hawkins (Heroes) in the mix make the connection fairly likely.

Well, now that JC had to basically give us the answer on how to decipher the codes...

The codes don't say much except for that we're supposed to be gathering info on this prince guy.

misnkjkmkvnjjdxvwzigxt.zuhznihptoogvefwxqjwksttah
"nereus.iamlookingforinformationonkhalidbinsultan."

I think we should start gathering information.

By the way, has anyone figured out what that symbol is, what it means, or who it's connected to?

I tried to clarify it for reference:



Closest thing I've been able to find is this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pronunciation_of_English_th

I know that's not it, but I'm trying...

I was glad the code in the email was pretty easy to decode. Once I saw the uggc://jjj.whatever, I figured it was a substitution code, and solved it with pen and paper. I'm glad someone else was able to tackle the Trifid cipher, though.

EDIT: Is it just me, or does JC sound EXTREMELY nervous on these recordings? Almost like there's something he's trying to keep from whoever he's talking to.

the Prince

I've found that there seem to be 2 widely used spellings of the Prince's name:

Khalid bin Sultan (the spelling JC used) & Khaled bin Sultan

Also notable is that his full name is:

Khalid (Khaled) bin Sultan bin Abdulaziz al Saud

EDIT: In the new email, JC says that this "could be the most significant event in 6 years." What happened 6 years ago?

Also, I noticed that the "names" JC used in the email to let him know if you're in or not were different for me.

Quote:
type "Robert Hawkins" if you comply, or "Jake Green" if you are unable to accept...

The Saudi US Relations Information page lists the Prince's name as:

Prince Khalid bin Sultan bin Abdul Aziz Al-Saud

THAT WAS FROM THE EMAIL! lemme express the phrase

so echelon/3 is working on it.
She's good at this sort of stuff

echelon/3 must be a girl helping JC and Saul! We thought it was an agency WHO KNOWS!
