Gregory Foster, after viewing the "Hackers Wanted" documentary, which was leaked to BitTorrent just before the Manning-Lamo chats allegedly began, proceeds to investigate what role the documentary might have played in the turn of events that ultimately ended in Pfc. Bradley Manning's arrest.

@TorrentFreak called up Adrian Lamo [ @6 ] on May 20, 2010 to get his comment on the film leak: http://bit.ly/qxeuaZ #Anonymous
Gregory Foster @gregoryfoster
Via @6, the film hadn't been released as "the producer @DanaBrunetti had too many 'ego conflicts' w/ the cast & crew." http://bit.ly/qxeuaZ
Gregory Foster @gregoryfoster
@TorrentFreak says the film's Director, Sam Bozzo, may have felt differently about distributing films via BitTorrent: http://bit.ly/qxeuaZ
Gregory Foster @gregoryfoster
As Adrian Lamo [ @6 ] seems to have convinced Sam Bozzo to "leak" another film to #BitTorrent the previous year: http://bit.ly/oSDSlk

That Sam Bozzo film is "Blue Gold: World Water Wars" (2008); IMDb: http://imdb.to/qEXCz3; torrents: http://bit.ly/mRJwAh

On June 12, 2010 an "unreleased director's cut" of Bozzo's film (the director) was released to BitTorrent: http://bit.ly/qNV0CM

On June 13, 2010, @TorrentFreak interviewed "Director Sam Bozzo On BitTorrent and the Movie Industry": http://bit.ly/pI4FkZ

@gregoryfoster sorry you wasted your time on it and unfortunate that you support piracy and steal unfinished work.

@DanaBrunetti Hi! I'm just following the rabbit hole. Can you tell me about the film? I am all rabbit-like ears.
Gregory Foster @gregoryfoster
>@DanaBrunetti Are you willing to engage in a conversation about the film, why you did not support its release, & what happened? #Anonymous
Dana Brunetti @DanaBrunetti
@gregoryfoster the film was never completed due to manipulation by one publicity seeking self centered subject.
Gregory Foster @gregoryfoster
>@DanaBrunetti Opinion on timing of the film's release to BitTorrent the day before the #Lamo-#Manning chats are said to have taken place?
Dana Brunetti @DanaBrunetti
@gregoryfoster Prefer not to as I do not wish to play into the publicity and desired result subject wanted and received because of it
Gregory Foster @gregoryfoster
@DanaBrunetti I can respect that. I'm going to continue on my way. Nice meeting you, and I will look into your other work soon.
Dana Brunetti @DanaBrunetti
@gregoryfoster Film led him to "him" - see chat log - which resulted in more publicity than "he" could have ever imagined. "His" dream.
Dana Brunetti @DanaBrunetti
@gregoryfoster unfortunate that one's life was ruined and he ended up in jail because his viewing of it led him into the mouth of a snake.
Gregory Foster @gregoryfoster
>@DanaBrunetti It seems like #Manning reached out to him after viewing the film. There's ambiguity in the log text: http://bit.ly/oj6pPm
