50 Children Have Been Rescued After Officials Busted a Multinational Pedophile Ring

Source: Time

Nine people were arrested in Thailand, Australia and the U.S. and 50 children were rescued following an Interpol investigation into an international pedophile ring.

The investigation, which began two years ago and is called Operation Blackwrist, targeted a “dark web” site that had more than 60,000 global users, according to the BBC.

Operation Blackwrist began after Interpol spotted images showing 11 boys under the age of 13 on a website where users utilized encrypted software to hide their identities, according to the BBC.

According to an Interpol statement, weekly images of children being abused were being uploaded to the site, but it was difficult to track down the perpetrators as the children’s faces were generally hidden.

4. An Important Point to be Made About This "Industry". . .

. . . Is that it would not be possible without the direct interaction of powerful, rich people.

The image of some crass, scuzzy lowlife locking kids in a dirty basement might be the picture some people would associate with sexual human trafficking. But the level of organization, the resources needed and the money to be made means that there are many people high up on the pecking order of our society who are either using the services or filling their pockets directly, or they may be turning a blind eye to murky business dealings with people who remain useful despite their unsavory connections.

Remember, poor people don't have the connections or knowledge of resources to operate an international "business". That remains the province of folks who can curry favor with law makers and find ways to disguise the source of a lot of money.

5. "direct interaction of powerful, rich people"

“I've known Jeff (Epstein) for 15 years. Terrific guy,'' Trump told New York Magazine back in 2002. "He's a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it - Jeffrey enjoys his social life."

7. The "Qanon" groupies are going to be crowing about this.

A big part of their conspiracy theory is that Trump is going to have all sorts of people arrested for "satanic child sex rings," including Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and others.

8. But QAnon didn't say a thing about this, didn't leak names, didn't point to where this happened

There was no prediction from QAnon that this would happen, QAnon didn't leak details that only investigators would know, etc.

I've pointed this out before, if we've got time to discuss QAnon, then we've got to begin mocking QAnon over this.

I'm looking at a conspiracy theorist site right now, they got their info from the BBC, not from a QAnon tweet.
