Barrett Lancaster Brown is an American journalist, essayist, activist and former associate of Anonymous; in the 2011/12 period he was sometimes referred to as the "spokesperson for Anonymous".[1] In 2010, he founded Project PM,[2][3][4] a group that used a wiki to analyze leaks concerning the military-industrial complex.[5]

He was involved with and reported on the HBGary e-mail leak.[6][7][8]

In January 2015, Brown was sentenced to 63 months in federal prison for the crimes of accessory after the fact, obstruction of justice, and threatening a federal officer stemming from the FBIs investigation into the 2012 Stratfor email leak. Prosecutors had previously brought other charges associated with sharing a link to the leaked Stratfor data, but those charges were dropped in 2014. As part of his sentence, Brown was also required to pay almost $900,000 to Stratfor in restitution.[9]

In late 2020, Brown restarted Project PM.[10]

A Quote by Barrett Brown

Paedophile“[...] back in 2007-2008, just like with the show, Perverted Justice, or Catch a Predator,<a href="#cite_note-1">[1]</a> [...] well there's a lot of us doing stuff like that back then, [...] and people still do it, they pretend to be young girls and all that, and as a proof of concept, as a test back in 2007 I did this and tricked the perp, the pedophile, into calling my number which turned out to be the number of the local Brooklyn New York police station. And then I told them, look you've just called that number, they've got that on file, I can send this to them right now, unless you do what I tell you to do, [...] I now have this guy's life in my hands, because I can send that to the police station and he's going down. So alternatively, if I were say, someone who wanted to build up a slave army of pedophiles, in order to achieve certain ends, I could say now here's what you have to do, you have to do the same thing I just did to you to three other people. Tell each one of them to do it to three other people and then down the line when I'm ready for you to do the actual work, I'll provide instructions, [...]”9 June 2022KONCRETE podcast
