Wikileaks: A big dangerous US government con job

10-12-2010 20:35

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.

Nobel Peace Prize Petiton: Julian Assange

10-12-2010 13:19

Assagnes Haftbefehl wurde Aufgehoben !
Please sign online petition: Nobel Peace Prize for Julian Assange ....... HUMAN RIGHTS - Background (Preamble): Julian Assange is the public face of Wikileaks, the organization that has done so much to expose the evil actions of the US and other governments - actions which those governments would rather keep secret.
He is currently under lock and key in the UK, on trumped-up charges widely seen as an excuse to get him into captivity with the aim of discouraging further disclosures of information which it is so evidently in the public interest to disclose. An award of a Nobel Peace Prize to this courageous man would recognize his contribution to justice and would encourage further leaks of information from those who are considering revealing facts but who might otherwise decide not to. An online petition has been launched, urging the Norwegian Nobel Committee to award the Nobel Peace Prize to Julian Assange. .......... ........... OK this idea comes from the Kremlin, but never mind that. Ditto the fact that Kissinger, Peres, and Obama also got given this prize. And the hacking is brilliant. But let's fight on more than one front.
