Wikileaks: truth or fiction

Well, well, well, they finally caught Julian Assange. Predictable set-up? That's is an understatement.

Hopefully, some of you are starting to really wonder who this guy is and who he really works for. Is he a cointelpro or hero? Is he a mere distraction and tool for the NSA to crack down further on internet wistleblowers? Whether the new liberal cult hero Julian Assange is in fact a “useful idiot” helping to propagate fake leaks for the Establishment, or is a bona fide covert intelligence operative, remains to be seen. His recent detention in the UK for alleged sexual abuse in Sweden is providing endless media candy which will focus on the international legal circus of these charges, and further propel the cult of personality forward. The hyped media attention seems a bit dubious to me and I'm beginning to wonder if Wikileaks is simply a corrupt oracle putting out a mix of light-to-middleweight intelligence and outright misinformation, in order to direct public opinion on a variety of issues.
My advise: be vigilant when analysing your Wikileaks. Watch for the low-hanging fruit… look but don’t bite!

Here's a very interesting take on Wikileaks... worth a listen.

I find it troubling that nothing in the recent leaks relates to the real reason for the US occupation of Pakistan and Afghanistan - namely fierce competition with our major economic rival (China) over dwindling Middle East oil and natural gas resources. Nothing about the Chinese-built Gwadar Port. Nothing about CIA support for the Baloch separatist movement. In a way the leaks support the "official" narrative justifying the Afghanistan/Pakistan - which makes no sense whatsoever. I blog about this at http://stuartbramhall.aegauthorblogs.com/2010/11/28/afghanistan-and-the-road-runner/
