  • Is Obama embracing torture? State Dept spokesman out of a job after criticizing treatment of Manning

    A State Department spokesman is out of a job after publicly criticizing the military's treatment of alleged WikiLeaker Bradley Manning. Obama maintains that Manning's treatment is "appropriate". State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley resigned under pressure on Sunday, a few days after telling a small audience at MIT that the Obama administration's treatment of alleged WikiLeaks secret-spiller Pfc. Bradley Manning has been "ridiculous and counterproductive and stupid." Asked about the criticism, Obama said the Pentagon had assured him that the conditions of Manning's detention — including, reportedly, some enforced nudity and 23 hours a day of solitary time — are "appropriate...

    Last night, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange sat down for a rare, extended interview with Steve Kroft of '60 Minutes.' In what CBS has called Assange's "most extensive television interview to date," the Australian national defended his organization's mission, discussed the roots of his own anti-authoritarian philosophy, and compared WikiLeaks' core principles to "those of the U.S. Revolution."

    I find many things ironic. However, I came across and article recently regarding the well known Julian Assange. As many of us know, he has a website called WikiLeaks. WikiLeaks' sole purpose is to take confidential information and make it public. Prior to this year, many of the leaks were based upon companies. Since this spring, many of the leaks have originated from the US government. Now, to look at the situation from an organizational level and relate it to a human is fairly simple. The cables were simply an internal dialog regarding the inner workings and thoughts of...

    Lovesick Emails of Julian Assange Reveal A Horny Creep At The Very least The Lascivious Lecher At WorkIn April of 2004, Elizabeth ( a fictitious name) a 19 year old female approached Julian Assange in a Melbourne bar. Assange was a 33 year old student studying mathematics and physics at the university. "I started talking to him and he just seemed kind of quiet and nerdy. I didn't think he was sexy or anything. Just strangely alluring for a 19-year-old girl." Assange flirted with her by flexing his mathematics skills and kidding her about being ignorant of mathematics and science....

    Gotta agree with Jazz Shaw here, this kind of whining by the left about the "inhumane" prison treatment of the treasonous Manning is beyond idiotic, it's embarrassing. Jazz Shaw spent some with the Military Police while he was in the military, I spent 6 years working the county jails of Los Angeles. We talk from experience: And I’m here to tell you that some of these self-styled human rights experts and legal analysts have probably been smoking something which the authorities would also frown upon. What are these "inhumane" conditions for this POS? At 5:00 a.m. he is woken...

    Found! An actually interesting Wikileaks, and tellingly it's not actually about the US, but an actually closed government: China. This one specifically goes after the veracity of Chinese GDP which is described as "man made" (via FT Alphaville) It's actually fascinating: 3. (C) Describing some of the challenges he faces as Party Secretary, Li [Liaoning Party Secretary] related that despite brisk economic growth of SIPDIS 12.8 percent in 2006, Liaoning’s income gaps remain severe. Liaoning ranks among the top 10 Chinese provinces in terms of per capita GDP, yet the number of its urban residents on welfare is among the...

    Is Wikileaks an operation to get rid of Hillary Clinton prior to 2012? There are a few writers who think so. Don Surber wrote about the Time interview of Julian Assange where he says Hillary should resign and concludes: The Wikileaks scandal is not that it was leaked but it is a blatant attempt to eliminate Hillary Clinton as a threat to Barack Obama’s re-election. ~~~ This is a political assassination that deserves inquiry by the Republican House come January. Forget getting Julian Assange on publishing the leaks. Find out who leaked. We know why. And some in the...

    On a February trip to the Middle East, Senate Foreign Relations Committee chairman John Kerry (D-MA) told Qatari leaders that the Golan Heights should be returned to Syria, that a Palestinian capital should be established in East Jerusalem as part of the Arab-Israeli peace process, and that he was "shocked" by what he saw on a visit to Gaza. Kerry discussed the Israeli-Palestinian peace process in a visit to Qatar during separate meetings with Prime Minister Hamad bin Jassim Al Thani and the Emir of Qatar, Hamad bin Khalifa, as revealed by the disclosure of diplomatic cables by the website...

    After WikiLeaks' unauthorized release of a quarter of a million State Department documents Sunday, Rep. Peter King (R-Seaford) called for the Swedish website to be designated a "foreign terrorist organization" and its founder Julian Assange to be charged as a spy. "WikiLeaks presents a clear and present danger to the national security of the United States," he wrote Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. "I strongly urge you to work within the administration to use every offensive capability of the U.S. government to prevent further damaging releases by WikiLeaks," said King in the letter he made public Sunday.

    An innocuous-looking memory stick, no longer than a couple of fingernails, came into the hands of a Guardian reporter earlier this year. The device is so small it will hang easily on a keyring. But its contents will send shockwaves through the world's chancelleries and deliver what one official described as "an epic blow" to US diplomacy. ... The US military believes it knows where the leak originated. A soldier, Bradley Manning, 22, has been held in solitary confinement for the last seven months and is facing a court martial in the new year. The former intelligence analyst is charged...

    Wikileaks has released the next wave of classified material and it has made this country infinitely weaker. No country will want to confide, nor help, the US again knowing that they too could be embarrassed. Ronald Neumann, who served as U.S. ambassador to Afghanistan from 2005 to 2007, tells Danger Room he fears the impact of forced candor on U.S. foreign relations. “A man might say things to his wife about his mother-in-law that he would be horrified to hear her repeat to her mother and the doing of which might even put great strain on his marriage,” Neumann...

    WMD Found in Iraq According to the latest batch of Wikileak documents. In particular, coalition troops kept coming across numerous artillery shells filled with mustard gas. Remember the terms of Section 8 of UN resolution 687 that ended the first Gulf War: Iraq shall unconditionally accept the destruction, removal, or rendering harmless, under international supervision, of: (a) All chemical and biological weapons and all stocks of agents and all related subsystems and components and all research, development, support and manufacturing facilities Thus the instance of a single chemical weapon in Iraq violates the terms that ended the Gulf War, and...

    I guess it's fitting that the nimrod who released all these Iraq war documents has been proven to be not only a nimrod, but a tool: By late 2003, even the Bush White House’s staunchest defenders were starting to give up on the idea that there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. But for years afterward, WikiLeaks’ newly-released Iraq war documents reveal, U.S. troops continued to find chemical weapons labs, encounter insurgent specialists in toxins, and uncover weapons of mass destruction. In August 2004, for instance, American forces surreptitiously purchased what they believed to be containers of liquid...

    Is this supposed to be some kind of October surprise? First the Obama camp decides to trump up stories of foreign money coming into Republican coffers....yawn. Now they (oh wait, it was wikileaks, not the Democrats.....yeaaaaah) get the Iraq war back into the news. My question....what did Obama know and when did he know it? A frago is a “fragmentary order” which summarises a complex requirement. This one, issued in June 2004, about a year after the invasion of Iraq, orders coalition troops not to investigate any breach of the laws of armed conflict, such as the abuse of...
