CNN B-Roll Transcript (June 2005)

A previously concealed B-Roll transcript from CNN Interviews in June 2005 has been made available at KryptosRevisited.com.  The transcript was compiled and edited by CNN’s Justine Redman (producer) and Elonka Dunin.

Sanborn discusses details of his CIA Sculpture “Kryptos,” and reveals new information about clues leading up to K4.  He also discloses actual techniques and concepts about k4, noting how it might fit in to the rest of the puzzle.

CNN Article: Sanborn, Too, was Obsessed with Kryptos

A CNN article from June of 2005 has been referenced at KryptosRevisited.com.  Sanborn discusses with journalist James Ensor details about how the Kryptos solution was first shown to members of Historical Intelligence before handing a sealed envelope over to William Webster at the CIA’s New Headquarters Building dedication ceremony.  Sanborn talks about k4, that last unsolved passage of Kryptos, metaphorically suggesting it is like “sand in an hourglass.”  Discover why Kryptos has its grip on everyone — even it’s creator.

Sanborn: ‘Kryptos’ sculpture was ‘an obsession’

Disinformation or Lazy Maintenance?

Many rumours about Kryptos flood the Internet.  It is difficult to distinguish between fact and fiction when it comes to the sculpture, especially to those who have only recently been exposed to it.  A new document entitled “Misconceptions” at KryptosRevisited.com will attempt to track some of the more widespread claims about Kryptos and distinguish truth from deception through articles and sources directly produced from James Sanborn’s own words.  Much of the disinformation about the sculpture — or Misinformation — is not a product of intentional misdirection, rather it is often attributed to earlier perceptions of Kryptos that has since become outdated or reformed in light of more precise focus over time.

For example, Kryptos Part Three (k3), is commonly understood to be encoded by a Triple or Keyed Columnar Transposition.  A decade ago, that was anyone’s best guess, and it seemed elegant at the time.  Since then, a much simpler, artistic cipher called a Double Rotation Transposition has been demonstrated to also be the solution to that part of the code, and it makes the old technique seem overly-complicated and confusing.  This is one such example of new information that is difficult to discover online because of the overwhelming number of references to outdated material.

One way to stay abreast of new information is to subscribe to the kryptos.info network blog RSS feed (comments can also be subscribed on an individual-article basis through the web site) and to bookmark KryptosRevisited.com as your up-to-date source for Kryptos Sculpture information.  We know you’re busy cracking the code, so we’ll make sure you’re informed with the latest breaking news and discoveries.
