You need to take this information for what it is - Our governments opinions of foreign affairs. Would you be surprised that U.S. diplomats possess a view mostly favorable to Israel. Would you believe that the diplomatic corps would hold opinions contrary to Israel.
To me, the lack of criticism of Israel so far in the STATE DEPARTMENT DOCUMENTS exposed by Wikileaks shows a US diplomatic corps essentially in lock step with Israel - surprise surprise. Arrogantly pushing to justify their international actions.
What - did you think the state department was a source of truth ? ?
That is in question here. But rather:
- who or what is behind all this?
- what is the purpose of releasing this information to the public?
- which parties have access to classified information coming out of washington?
- Why is the lamestream media HELPING these alledged "criminals" en "terrorists" from wikileaks achieving their aims, while ignoring so many orther issues at the same time?
I think these are legitimate questions. Are we supposed to think that Julien Assange is some sort of modern day Robin Hood who fights injustice and corruption out of sheer compassion for humanity? I would think that is a little bit naieve..
out of ethical considerations. Some journalists still have integrity, and they force the others to at least have a little. Journalists are still capitalists, so they want to sell papers.
I'm sure Assange likes the publicity - helps him get girls, who knows.
So what's Ron Paul's angle ? -- See a world without trust in someone is a difficult world to live in.
Who or what may be behind this, and how these 'leaks' may benefit the interest of Israel, I'd suggest you just check Haaretz.com newsheadlines. Here are a few examples from the last 12 hours:
* WikiLeaks exposé: Israel tried to coordinate Gaza war with Abbas
* WikiLeaks exposé: Barak warned strike on Iran was viable until end of 2010
* WikiLeaks exposé: Iran used ambulances to run arms into Lebanon during 2006 war
* Yossi Melman / WikiLeaks exposed all on Iran, but told nothing new
* WikiLeaks exposé: Karzai 'paranoid' and Ahmadinejad 'like Hitler'
* WikiLeaks dispatch: Iran's Khamenei has terminal cancer
* WikiLeaks cables show U.S.-Israel fear of 'fundamentalist' Erdogan
* Netanyahu: WikiLeaks cables prove Israel is right on Iran
* WikiLeaks exposé makes it clear: Everybody hates Iran
You have to ask yourself which government benefits the mosts pr-wise from all these pieces of information (or desinformation), and so far it seems a pretty good deal for Israel.
If Wikileaks is not a tool of Israel or others complicit with Israel, why are there no controversial documents which involve Israel? One of the countries with which we have the most diplomatic involvement. Yet nothing? Not even a strongly worded rebuke or an opinion paper on their leaders, diplomacy or policies? It's all stuff which supports a hard line against Iran and makes the current U.S. administration and its other Middle East allies look a bit foolish.
None of this stuff is Top Secret either. It all stinks of another game of wag the dog. Whoever runs Wikileaks, they seem to be very picky-choosy about what they release and none of it is bad PR for Israel.
says he is against the wars.
Whether or not you believe him is up to you.
I appreciate his shedding light on a topic that the media would much rather leave in the shadows.
That is how they convince you they are allies. Assange is another person who thinks 9-11 went down just like the government said... That is what he is all about - a pied piper to lead conspiracy experts away from the real problem.
If he was truly against war, he would be exposing the REAL cause of ALL wars, yet he shines the light AWAY from there.
Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.
by various governments include the us gov. in order to expose us dealings, i guess even asking you to reserve judgments would be too much. contrast that to the easy time posting and theorizing-away of the whole galaxy with conspiracies by some of the armchair/keyboard patriots here. note that they are being sent classified materials on us dealings? not israel. u guys really think the world is centered around your ideas.. if someone's not *yet* up to your standard, he's automatically a fake. just like rand paul, just like julian.
Wikileaks, following much media fanfare (reason for suspicion right there) has just released a huge number of documents supposedly leaked to WikiLeaks and no other websites'. The media is denouncing this as a threat to the United States while US politicians wring their hands and wonder when they will be free of the curse of the First Amendment and all that troublesome nonsense about Freedom of Speech. Many observers think this is a propaganda set up and that neither Julian Assange or WikiLaeks should be taken at face value. After all, Julian Assange keeps insisting there was no 9-11 conspiracy and the 9-11 truth movement a "distraction." Apparently Julian Assange has patented conspiracy and nobody else may expose one except himself!
Of course, there is really not that much that is new in this latest dump. Like prior WikiLeaks dumps, most of it is old news mixed with some rather dubious claims. In his last such dump, Julian Assange included a claim that Osama bin Laden is still alive and controlling Al Qaeda. Of course, it is well documented outside the United States that Osama bin Laden has been dead for many years and that Al Qaeda itself is a fake front group created to hoax Americans into endless wars of conquest, much as the fictional Emmanuel Goldstein was used in George Orwell's "1984."
As for the present batch of documents, again it is a rehash of stories already known to the blog-o-sphere. Even those people who did not know US diplomats spy on their United Nations counterparts did not find it surprising or in any way a new idea.
So what is the real purpose of Assange's little charade? Propaganda.
Propaganda is like rat poison. 95% of it is tasty, healthy food. But the purpose is to get you to swallow the poison. The same is true of the WikiLeaks document dump. The bait are all these old stories which we already knew about, used to convince us that the entire pile is "tasty, healthy food," except that it isn't. Buried in the pile of delicious, albeit past the expiration date morsels are the bits of poison which the US Government knows you will no longer accept at face value from the controlled media, but hope you will eat if handed to you by a con artist posing as hostile to the government.
So, given that 95% of the current WikiLeaks is really old news, as a public service I will point out the bits of poison that Julian hopes you will eat.
1. Iran is bad so you should all want to kill them.
2. Saudi Arabia is bad because they are funding Al Qaeda so you should all want to kill them.
3. North Korea is bad because they gave really long range missiles to Iran for Iran to put their nuclear warheads in, so you should all want to kill them.
4. China is messing with your computers, so you should all want to kill them.
That about sums it up.
Funny thing about rat poison. After a while the rats learn to eat the food and leave the poison behind.
"If this mischievous financial policy [greenbacks], which has its origin in North America, should become endurated down to a fixture, then that government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off its debts and be without debts. It will hav
if it was. I would put NOTHING past them. Obama must have done something that they didn't "approve" of. If it was them then I consider that an act of terrorism.

Introduction: The first of two programs dealing with WikiLeaks, this broadcast examines an intelligence–connected mind control cult with which WikiLeaks kingpin Julian Assange appears to be affiliated. As well connected as it is ruthless and criminal, the Santiniketan Park Association of Anne Hamilton-Byrne conditioned children with drugs, sensory deprivation, sleep deprivation, torture and ritual sexual abuse in order to produce subjects who bent to the will of the group’s leader.....
That, get ready. . . .Iran has nukes and nobody trusts them. Sound like Israel to you? (don't worry, I know what you meant)
