Who is Behind Wikileaks?

Wikleaks is upheld as a breakthrough in the battle against media disinformation and the lies of the US government.
Unquestionably, the released documents constitute an important and valuable data bank. The documents have been used by critical researchers since the outset of the Wikileaks project. Wikileaks earlier revelations have focussed on US war crimes in Afghanistan (July 2010) as well as issues pertaining to civil liberties and the “militarization of the Homeland” (see Tom Burghardt, Militarizing the “Homeland” in Response to the Economic and Political Crisis, Global Research, October 11, 2008)
In October 2010, WikiLeaks was reported to have released some 400,000 classified Iraq war documents, covering events from 2004 to 2009 (Tom Burghardt, The WikiLeaks Release: U.S. Complicity and Cover-Up of Iraq Torture Exposed, Global Research, October 24, 2010). These revelations contained in the Wikileaks Iraq War Logs provide “further evidence of the Pentagon’s role in the systematic torture of Iraqi citizens by the U.S.-installed post-Saddam regime.” (Ibid)
Progressive organizations have praised the Wikileaks endeavor. Our own website Global Research has provided extensive coverage of the Wikileaks project.
The leaks are heralded as an immeasurable victory against corporate media censorship.
But there is more than meets the eye.

WikiLeaks revelations raise more questions than answers

Posted by seumasach on December 12, 2010

“Israel’s main target is the Erdoğan government. The fact that the documents include allegations aimed at discrediting the government doesn’t seem to be a coincidence,”

The content of leaked US diplomatic cables made public by whistleblower website WikiLeaks has already led to heated debates in the domestic political arena, while a considerable number of analysts and politicians warn of the danger of losing sight of the big picture as they argue it is an attempt by self-interest groups to manipulate governments and the public.

Wikileaks: A Big Dangerous US Government Con Job

10th December, 2010

The story on the surface makes for a script for a new Oliver Stone Hollywood thriller. A 39-year old Australian hacker holds the President of the United States and his State Department hostage to a gigantic cyber “leak,” unless the President leaves Julian Assange and his Wikileaks free to release hundreds of thousands of pages of sensitive US Government memos. A closer look at the details, so far carefully leaked by the most ultra-establishment of international media such as the New York Times, reveals a clear agenda. That agenda coincidentally serves to buttress the agenda of US geopolitics around the world from Iran to Russia to North Korea. The Wikileaks is a big and dangerous US intelligence Con Job which will likely be used to police the Internet.

Daniel Ellsberg has been running around singing the praises of Julian Assange ever since his first big-time leak, the Collateral Damage video, which showed a U.S. gunship killing various unarmed civilians in Iraq two of whom happened to be reporters. With the recent pile of “leaked” state department memos, Ellsberg can’t hardly take a breath between interviews and round table discussions, where he is the primary focus and a staunch supporter of everything Wikileaks.

Something stinks about Wikileaks release of “secret” documents

F.William Engdahl

Voltairenet

12th August, 2010

Coinciding with Voltaire Network’s interpretation of the Wikileaks uproar, F. William Engdhal also detects the signs of a gross diversion maneuver. Conspicuously, no mention is made of the juicy Afghan drug business while retired Pakistani General Hamid Gul is conveniently framed for the breakdown of U.S. policies in Afghanistan. After Osama bin Laden, this is the second time that the mightiest world power would be ridiculing itself if indeed it had been outwitted at the hands of a sigle man. Remarkably, one of the few who still believes in the official tale of OBL happens to be leakmaster Julian Assange himself.
