Assange and Russia’s Dance with the Devil
TDC Note – Do you trust Julian Assange or Zbigniew Brzezinski or neither? Tough question.
There is a powerful need, powerful and irrational, to believe in Wikileaks. For the past seven years, Wikileaks has warred on the enemies of Israel, pushed for attacks on Iran, leaked material, often found to be fabricated, embarrassing to political enemies of Israel, and has done so under a guise of phony anti-imperialism and anti-Americanism, easy to sell to the undiscerning dumbed down by a generation of “info-tainment” news.
Never a word has been spoken about the bombings of Yemen, the slaughter of the Palestinians nor the abuse of sanctions and the endless threats against Iran. All Wikileaks material is approved by Israel, as admitted by Assange in 2011, during his spat with the New York Times.
We also find that Wikileaks or really Assange based material, though often anti-Obama, is not only highly supportive of America’s warlike neocon agenda but almost invariably damaging to Russia and her allies.
Those who accept Wikileaks at face value simply aren’t paying attention. Back in 2010, Veterans Today did an analysis on Wikileaks and ran background on Julian Assange. We found Wikileaks to be an intelligence operation that using material given to Israel by the American National Security Agency (NSA) under a bizarre intelligence sharing agreement.
Assange himself had a theatrical and spotty personal background closely resembling the “legends” created for intelligence assets.
The Leak Fabricators
The US routinely passes on all raw domestic surveillance material to Israel including massive phone and email taps. This includes financial data on corporations and included Hillary Clinton’s private email as well. This is the real source of the leaks, there is no magic hacker cabal.
Israel simply scans the material, sends it to working groups, and uses it to manipulate financial markets, control currencies, blackmail politicians and channels some into the intelligence operation known as Wikileaks.
On December 3, 2010, National Public Radio host Judy Woodruff interviewed former National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski. The following partial transcript is from that interview:
ZBIGNIEW BRZEZINSKI: But I think the most serious issues are not those which are getting the headlines right now. Who cares if Berlusconi is described as a clown? Most Italians agree with that. Who cares if Putin is described as an alpha dog? He probably is flattered by it.
The real issue is, who is feeding Wikipedia on this issue — Wiki — Wiki — WikiLeaks on this issue? They’re getting a lot of information which seems trivial, inconsequential, but some of it seems surprisingly pointed. …The very pointed references to Arab leaders could have as their objective undermining their political credibility at home, because this kind of public identification of their hostility towards Iran could actually play against them at home.
Author’s note: The use of the term, “pointed” is key. This indicates two classes of information and also begins building a hypothesis to support “intent.” If there is “intent” in the leaks, then they are an intelligence operation, not a leak.
ZBIGNIEW BRZEZINSKI: It’s, rather, a question of whether WikiLeaks are being manipulated by interested parties that want to either complicate our relationship with other governments or want to undermine some governments, because some of these items that are being emphasized and have surfaced are very pointed.
And I wonder whether, in fact, there aren’t some operations internationally, intelligence services, that are feeding stuff to WikiLeaks, because it is a unique opportunity to embarrass us, to embarrass our position, but also to undermine our relations with particular governments.
Author’s note: Brzezinsky goes exactly there, indicating his belief that Wikileaks is tied to an intelligence agency. This is a full and direct challenge to the credibility of wikileaks showing no reservations whatsoever.
ZBIGNIEW BRZEZINSKI: For example, leaving aside the personal gossip about Sarkozy or Berlusconi or Putin, the business about the Turks is clearly calculated in terms of its potential impact on disrupting the American-Turkish relationship….the top leaders, Erdogan and Davutoglu and so forth, are using some really, really, very sharp language.
JUDY WOODRUFF: But this is 250 — it’s a quarter-of-a-million documents.
ZBIGNIEW BRZEZINSKI: Precisely.
JUDY WOODRUFF: How easy would it be to seed this to make sure that it was slanted a certain way?
ZBIGNIEW BRZEZINSKI: Seeding — seeding it is very easy. I have no doubt that WikiLeaks is getting a lot of the stuff from sort of relatively unimportant sources, like the one that perhaps is identified on the air. But it may be getting stuff at the same time from interested intelligence parties who want to manipulate the process and achieve certain very specific objectives.
What All this Means
Nearly six years ago, Wikileaks was “outed” as an intelligence operation. As Assange has spoken often of his admiration for Israel’s Netanyahu and has, in extremely critical areas such as 9/11, moved to quell controversy and actually suppress any investigations, particularly those that might lead to Israel, there can be little doubt who runs Wikileaks.
Running background on Sarah Harrison, supposed editor of Wikileaks credited with spiriting Edward Snowden to Moscow leads us, not only into the middle of Britain’s MI6, seen by many as a Mossad “franchise” but to Snowden’s former employer, Booz Allen Hamilton, long tasked with undermining Putin through their Russian operation, the Moscow Times, run through a Swedish front company.
Harrison has been repeatedly tied to Mossad press assets in the US and Britain and has a clear association with destabilization efforts against both Iran and Russia.
The Wikileaks organization, when rosters are checked, is made up entirely of former employees of Radio Liberty and Radio Free Europe, organizations that work under an advisory board which includes former Bush cabinet members Donald Rumsfeld and Condoleezza Rice.
Today few doubt that the ADL, the Anti-Defamation League, is an Israeli intelligence operation used to blackmail American politicians. Before being removed from that organization, its former head, Abe Foxman, became a standing joke, essentially a “Mafia don” in a yamukah. Here is what the ADL published our Veterans Today’s efforts to expose Wikileaks, which can reasonably now be taken as confirmation of Wikileaks ties to Israel:
“Many of the conspiracy theories about Israel and WikiLeaks are being promulgated by an anti-Semitic conspiracy theorist named Gordon Duff on his Web site Veterans Today, which features anti-Israel and Holocaust denial materials. Duff has authored numerous articles and appeared in interviews advancing his allegations that Israel orchestrated WikiLeaks as a public relations campaign. In an undated interview with British-based IQRA TV, Duff even implicated India’s intelligence agency as being part of the conspiracy to bolster Israel’s image.
In another interview with the mainstream the Israeli newspaper Haaretz on December 17, 2010, Duff told the paper that, “WikiLeaks is obviously concocted by an intelligence agency. It’s a ham-handed action by Israel to do its public relations.”
There are two ways to take this, one being that Veterans Today and this author are really awful, despite being pushed by Israeli mainstream media or, just perhaps, that when Duff and Brzezinski outed Assange, something else happened.
We believe the answer is simple, that as Wikileaks has never leaked a single document or email involving Israel, a nation central to global controversy, that Wikileaks is Israel.
We think it is and has been a “slam dunk.”
Gordon Duff is a Marine combat veteran of the Vietnam War that has worked on veterans and POW issues for decades and consulted with governments challenged by security issues. He’s a senior editor and chairman of the board of Veterans Today, especially for the online magazine “New Eastern Outlook.”
