Thanks MIKE for shedding light on this. Ever since this Wikileaks has been heard of all I get from most people is how this is another Daniel Ellsberg. I think it's nothing at all like Ellsberg. As much as we all want transparent government & accountability, there certainly are plenty of legitimate reasons for information to remain privileged and confidential to different levels of security. I think we all agree that 'the interest of national security' has too often been used to keep illegal actions covered up, but real national interest secrets and personnel should remain secret or have people already forgotten what happened to Valerie Plame & Joe Wilson? Don't tell me they think Dick Cheney is anything like Daniel Ellsberg?

Wikileaks, Legitimate Whistleblowers or CointelPro?

Julian Assange, founder of Wikileaks

The Intel Hub

Alex Thomas

I have received multiples tips
        from our sources that indicate Wikileaks is part of a massive
        government operation. Rather than posting an article with quotes
        from sources that must remain unnamed, I have decided to let
        what we know about Wikileaks speak for itself.

Wikileaks and their founder, Julian Assange have been the focus
      of intense media scrutiny for what has been dubbed the ���New
        Pentagon Papers.���
With all the attention focused on how
      they received the information and what it means, most media
      outlets have overlooked some very important questions. Who is
      Julian Assange and how has Wikileaks managed to out run both the
      CIA and NSA? Why has the world elite stood by and let a group
      fronted by a former hacker release information that is perceived
      to damage them? Is it possible that Wikileaks has been set up as a
      shill group, used to spread misinformation on a massive scale?

From its inception, Wikileaks has been hailed as a mysteriousentity,
      capable of exposing government corruption on every level. Even
      more mysterious, Wikileaks founder and public face, Julian
      Assange, has been able to out maneuver multiple
            federal agency���s
on his supposed quest
      for truth. Alternative news outlets across the globe have
      applauded Wikileaks for its exposure of our disastrous military
      policies and there implications for the people of Afghanistan.
      Basically,Wikileaks has been given a free pass within the ���truther���
      community. In our info battle against this so called ���New World
      Order,���[Old World Order] we tend to overlook the
      shady tendencies of the people and groups we perceive to be
      allies. Clearly this is the case with Julian Assange and his
      supposed release of classified material. Could Wikileaks be a well
      place group of Cointelpro
      Agents, started not only to take the spotlight off other, more
      legitimate whistleblowers, but to be used as a pawn in order to
      demonize all whistleblowers as potential threats to national

Recently, Wikileaks released the Afghan
            War Logs,
which documented multiple
      operations that killed a high number of civilians, ���secret���
      operations/units, a rise in Taliban attacks on NATO, and perhaps
      most importantly the perception that the Pakistani intelligence
      service has aided the enemy by double crossing NATO forces and
      passing intelligence to the Taliban.

A common theme has emerged from the revelations brought
        forth by the Afghan War Logs, a theme that does more good than
        harm to the government its supposed to be exposing.

Let���s start with the evidence in the logs which revealed that
      U.S. forces were responsible for thousands of civilian deaths.
      Similar to the video, Collateral
,  this evidence does nothing but
      incite anger towards individual U.S. soldiers while shielding the
      real enemies, most notably the offshore banking cartel that is
      actively working towards the destruction of our beloved
      Constitution in order to implement a tyrannical world government.
      As shown, these type of leaks only further the hatred that many
      Muslims have towards whom they deem the oppressors. When you see
      your family murdered, the fact that groups such as Hamas, and Al
      Qaeda were
by western intelligence agencies
      most likely does not play into your decision to join a terrorist

Another revelation brought forth by the Afghan War Logs is the
      supposed rise
            in attacks
on NATO forces by the
      Taliban. This information is very beneficial to the forces that
      have invaded Afghanistan. Support for the Afghan war continues to
      decrease, and to counter that the government needs to show the
      public that the terrorists are just as deadly and mysterious as
      before. From the beginning ,the Afghan war has been a lie, started
      on the false pretense that cave dwelling terrorists pulled off one
      of the most deadly terrorists attack in American history. The CIA,
      along with the Mossad and MI6, have a long history of staging
      terror attacks, whether it be 9/11, 7/7, or the multiple bombings
      that happen daily throughout the middle east. While that may be
      hard to swallow for some, these facts are documented in hundreds
      of research papers as well as the internal documents of the
      intelligence agencies involved.

Perhaps the most sinister information brought forth by the war
      logs is the claim that the Pakistani ISI are working in cohesion
      with the Taliban. The suggestion by Secretary of State Hillary
      Clinton that the ISI has known and hidden the whereabouts of top
      Al Qaeda members is nothing more than a ploy to push for more
      drone attacks, as well as a possible troop deployment inside
      Pakistan. As reported
      in the New York Times, the logs go as far as claiming that members
      of the ISI have worked with the Taliban to organize groups of
      militants! War propaganda anyone?

As reported by Wayne Madsen, Wikileaks is most likely a Mossad/CIA
front. Its hard to argue with that claim as everything
      put forward by Wikileaks has been, for the most part, beneficial
      to the world elite.

WMR has confirmed Young���s contention that Wikileaks is a
          CIA front operation. Wikileaks is intimately involved in a $20
          million CIA operation that U.S.-based Chinese dissidents that
          hack into computers in China. Some of the Chinese hackers
          route special hacking program through Chinese computers that
          then target U.S. government and military computer systems.
          After this hacking is accomplished, the U.S. government
          announces through friendly media outlets that U.S. computers
          have been subjected to a Chinese cyber-attack. The ���threat���
          increases an already-bloated cyber-defense and offense budget
          and plays into the fears of the American public and businesses
          that heavily rely on information technology. Article

If in-fact the government was in fear of more ���leaked��� documents
      wouldn���t logic suggest they just shut down the WikiLeak Site? An
      article in The Sydney Morning Herald contains the following quote,

���That the President already had authority under the
            Communications Act to ���cause the closing of any facility or
            station for wire communication��� when there is a ���state or
            threat of war���,

The most scary aspect of this whole psi op is the fact that there
      is now an open call to ban whistleblowers and in extremely
      instances execute them! Republican Congressman Mike Rogers has
      openly declared that all whistleblowers should be tried for
      treason and then executed. Rogers strongly indicated that Daniel
      Ellsberg, who released the Pentagon Papers, should have been
      executed when he released his classified information on the
      history of the United States political and military involvement in

Daniel Yates, a former intelligence officer, recently wrote a
            shill piece
with the title, ���Leaked
        Afghan files put civilians at risk.���
Yates went on to say:

It is hard to imagine that many people will judge it
          sensible to speak to NATO troops in the future. That can only
              the suffering of the Afghan people


What Yates was trying to put forward, is that not only is the
      release of classified information detrimental to national
      security, it also prolongs the suffering of the civilians in the
      area. What he conveniently fails to mention is that the invasion
      of Afghanistan under a totally false pretense has caused an untold
      amount of civilian deaths. All of a sudden the intelligence
      community has miraculously started to care about civilian life?

To top it off, Julian Assange is apparently annoyed
      with conspiracies theories such as those that mention 9/11:

What about 9/11? ���I���m constantly annoyed that people are
          distracted by false conspiracies such as 9/11, when all around
          we provide evidence of real conspiracies, for war or mass
          financial fraud.��� What about the Bilderberg conference?

How can we support a group whose
      front man has attempted to debunk legitimate conspiracies and
      instead has pushed the information that he has received,
      information that has been proven beneficial to the world elite?

As reported
      by Jack Blood, Wikileaks are partners with the Open
        Society Institute
, a George Soros funded operation!

People such as Wayne Madsen and John Young have already
        attempted to expose Wikileaks as a front organization. When
        contacted for this article, John Young, the founder of Cryptome,
        had this to say:

���The principal deficiency of Wikileaks is its lack of
          transparency about its operators and funds, characteristics of
          spies and secret societies up to no good and whose main
          purpose is to hide from public accountability and conceal
          corruption and criminality.

Such organizations always use a noble purpose and claim
          secrecy is needed to protect supporters. In practice the
          secrecy protects the principal beneficiaries, the operators
          and sources of funds, and supporters are sacrificed to protect
          the continuation of the enterprise.

Wikileaks has followed the lucrative model of the cult of
          national security, the largest world���s secret enterprise,
          composed of selected elements of governments, military,
          intelligence, NGOs, contractors, lobbyists and supporters,
          identified by their clearance for access to classified

Royalty and religion have long demonstrated the power of
          secrecy in misrepresenting what they are up to, pronouncing a
          great public benefit while reaping privileged rewards behind
          this cloak ��� a lavish cloak of property, ceremony, titles and
          prizes, architecture, clothing, language and literature,
          music, fine arts, and not least, a complex apparatus of
          punishment for apostates and infidels, often by military means
          but equally often by covert attacks.

Cults of royalty, religion, military are the main
          practitioners of secrecy and they are role models for
          ambitious persons who believe they have a mission to be
          superior to the public and must violate public trust to battle
          those who have similar ambitions. They invent enemies to
          warrant this betrayal.

They also combine with their competitors to advance their
          causes. Thus the appeal of global initiatives to violate
          national borders in transgression of local law hidden by

That���s the short sermon. Far better is the browsible
          library of bountiful supporting information undoctored by

The release of the Afghan war logs have done nothing to expose
      the NWO, what they have done is strengthen the calls for tough
      retaliation against legitimate whistleblowers. Whistleblowers are
      an integral part of this infowar, without them, we the people have
      no way to know what our government is doing, legal or illegal. Its
      even conceivable that Bradley Manning, who from all indications is
      a true patriot, was set up by the government in order to be used
      as a scapegoat for this whole fiasco, as well as to weed out
      another patriots from the ranks of intelligence.

As a movement, we must question even our closest allies, not just
      in the case of Wikileaks but with all major alternative news
      outlets and activist groups.
