CrossTalk: Vault 7

    Mar 10, 2017 Wikileaks strikes again. On full display are the CIA’s spy tools and methods. Snowden provided a briefing book on U.S. surveillance, but the CIA leaks could provide the blueprints. And your Samsung TV and iPhone are a big part of this. CrossTalking with Larry Johnson, Suzanne Nossel, and Patrick Henningsen.

Ecuador grants asylum to Assange – FULL SPEECH by FM Ricardo Patino

Commentary: Even though I had little doubt that Ecuador would grant asylum to Assange, it was really heart-warming for me to listen to the absolutely beautiful statement of Foreign Minister Ricardo Patiño, in particular after learning of the mind-boggling arrogance of the Brits who dared to cross a line very few, if any, governments ever dared cross: threaten to violate the sovereignty of an embassy (the only other example I

The Secrets of Wikileaks – Julian Assange’s Deal With the Devil

By Israel Shamir for Counterpunch In Part One of my report last weekend here on the CounterPunch site I showed that the US was secretly funnelling money into Belarus to fund the unelected opposition. Previously, the claim had been routinely denied. Now we have sterling proof. It is engraved in a confidential cable from a US Embassy to the State Department. It is undeniable. That is, if you found the

WikiLeaks to release Israel documents in six months

The Peninsula reports:DOHA: WikiLeaks will release top secret American files concerning Israel in the next six months, its founder Julian Assange disclosed yesterday. In an excusive interview with Al Jazeera, Assange said only a meagre number of files related to Israel had been published so far, because the newspapers in the West that were given exclusive rights to publish the secret documents were reluctant to publish many sensitive information about

New Zealand accused of Israel ‘flap’ to boost Arab trade

by Richard Adams for The Age US diplomats  accused the New Zealand government of overreacting to Israeli agents trying to get NZ passports fraudulently so Wellington could sell more lamb to Arab countries, according to leaked cables. The arrest and conviction in 2004 of two Israeli citizens who were caught using the identity of a cerebral palsy sufferer to apply for a NZ passport caused a rift between NZ and

CIA Launches W.T.F. to Assess Cablegate Damage

by knowledgeempire for WL Central The CIA has launched a new task force to assess the impact of Cablegate. The Wikileaks Task Force, apparently termed W.T.F., will focus on media exposure and the repercussions of the newest cable releases. After Wikileaks published its first batch of classified documents, CIA spokesperson George Little had claimed that the CIA was “unconcerned” about the Wikileaks disclosures. Conversely, on November 8, the following press

Did WikiLeaks reach a secret deal with Israel?

By Abdel Bari Atwan, Special to Gulf News Absence of cables from US embassies in Tel Aviv is surprising, especially on the Lebanon war and Gaza massacre The current deluge of WikiLeaks’ pirated US diplomatic cables has been a triumph for press freedom and the democratic ideal of open and accountable government, but has mostly served to confirm rather than reveal. Unlike WikiLeaks’ previous scoops (the Afghan and Iraq War

Wikileaks, Litvinenko and a personal note

Dear friends, Justin Raimondo has penned a very good commentary on what Wikileaks reveals about the canard about the Russian secret service killing Litvinenko with some Polonium 210.  But I cannot publish it here lest the pretend-libertarians at Antiwar.com try to sue me for doing so.  Still, Raimondo makes so many good points that I will break my self-imposed rule and actually just point to the URL of the original

Kettling Wikileaks

by Richard Stallman for Defective by Design Kettling: also known as containment or corralling – a police tactic for the management of large crowds during demonstrations or protests. The Anonymous web protests over WikiLeaks are the internet equivalent of a mass demonstration. It’s a mistake to call them hacking (playful cleverness) or cracking (security breaking). The LOIC program that is being used by the group is prepackaged so no cleverness

Wikileaks: Documents Confirm US Plans Against Venezuela

By Eva Golinger for Postcards from the RevolutionState Department documents published by Wikileaks evidence Washington’s plans to “contain” Venezuela’s influence in the region and increase efforts to provoke regime changeA substantial portion of the more than 1600 State Department documents Wikileaks has published during the past two weeks refer to the ongoing efforts of US diplomacy to isolate and counter the Venezuelan government.Since Hugo Chavez won the presidency for the

Do we know “who is behind Wikileaks”?

I am getting emails from readers on an almost daily basis now, pointing me to the article by by Michel Chossudovsky “Who is Behind Wikileaks?”  This is a very good article indeed, and I highly recommend its reading.  But please, let me point out the key segment of this article (emphasis added): In the case of Wikileaks, the facts are contained in a data bank; many of those facts, particularly

Two important articles by the EFF about the Internet freedom in the Wikileaks context

Information is the Antidote to Fear: Wikileaks, the Law, and You  by Kevin Bankston When it comes to Wikileaks, there’s a lot of fear out there on the Internet right now. Between the federal criminal investigation into Wikileaks, Senator Joe Lieberman’s calls for companies to stop providing support for Wikileaks and his suggestion that the New York Times itself should be criminally investigated, Senator Dianne Feinstein’s recent Wall Street Journal

Vladimir Putin and Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva support Assange and Wikileaks

It’s official now, Russia and Brazil support Assange and Wikileaks. Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said on Thursday that the arrest of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange showed the West was hypocritical in its criticism of Russia’s record on democracy. Brazil’s President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva on Thursday expressed “solidarity” with jailed WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, criticising the Australian activist’s arrest as a blow against “freedom of expression.” That’s 2

Russian official: WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange should receive Nobel prize

By Eric W. Dolan for the Raw Story An unnamed Russian official suggested Wednesday that detained WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange should be awarded a Nobel prize. “Non-governmental and governmental organizations should think of ways to help him,” a source in the Kremlin administration told RIA Novosti. “Perhaps he could be awarded a Nobel prize.” The remarks by the Kremlin official come after Assange was arrested Tuesday morning by London Metropolitan
