Wikileaks and its impaired boss represent a classic form of limited hangout or self-exposure, a kind of lurid striptease in which the front organization releases doctored and pre-selected materials provided by the intelligence agency with the intent of harming, not the CIA, nor the UK, nor the Israelis, but rather such classic CIA enemies’ list figures as,

At Foggy Bottom and Langley, a manic fit has been building since the flight of Ben Ali.
U.S. imperialist planners now believe they can re-launch their shopworn model of the color revolution, CIA people-power coup, or postmodern putsch against a whole series of countries in the Arab world and far beyond, including Italy.
The color revolutions had been looking tarnished lately, as a result of the failure of the Twitter Revolution in Iran back in June 2009.
Previously, the Cedars Revolution of 2005 had failed in Lebanon. The Orange Revolution in Ukraine had been rolled back with the ouster of NATO-IMF kleptocrats Yushchenko and Timoshenko.
Georgia, the Roses Revolution was increasingly discredited by the repressive
and warmongering regime of fascist madman Saakashvili.

The second document dump focused on Iraq, but now the targeting had shifted to Prime Minister Maliki, and the Iranian asset whom the U.S. by some strange coincidence was trying to oust as leader of Iraq in favor of the U.S. puppet Allawi.
With the third document dump, this time involving State Department cables, we found out much derogatory gossip about such classic CIA targets as,

Wikileaks thus directs the vast majority of its
fire against figures who are part of the CIA’s enemies list.
The totalitarian liberal Senator Feinstein wants to bring back Woodrow Wilson’s infamous Espionage Act of 1917 in honor of Assange. Assange must be seen not as an activist, not as a journalist, and not as an entertainer, but rather as a spook.
John Young of Cryptome, according to some reports, has denounced Wikileaks, to which he formerly belonged, as a CIA front.
In a December 29 RT interview, Young described the internet as,
The internet is indeed a vast battlefield, where the intelligence agencies of the U.S.-UK, China, Israel, Russia, and many others clash every hour of the day, with commercial spies, hackers, anarchists, cultists, mercenary trolls, and psychotics all getting into the act as well.
Intelligence agencies deliberately feed real and
doctored material to various websites, sometimes using their own disgruntled
employees as cutouts, conduits, and go-betweens. This means among other
things that Bradley Manning cannot be taken at face value, although it is
also clear that he like anyone else should not be tortured.
Now they think they have a cult figure whom they
can sell to the youth bulge in the Arab world and other developing
countries, where most of the population is under 30. This is an operation
which must be exposed.
And as far as Assange’s attacks on the Vatican are concerned, they fit neatly into four centuries of British intelligence warfare against the Holy See, going back to Guy Fawkes and Lord Robert Cecil’s Gunpowder Plot of 1605 and beyond.
Not much new or radical here...
No U.S. public figures have had to resign because of anything Wikileaks has done. No major ongoing covert operation or highly placed agent of influence has been blown. After all these months, there are still no U.S. indictments against Assange, even though we know that a U.S. grand jury will readily indict a ham sandwich if the U.S. Attorney demands it.
If the CIA had wanted to silence Assange, they could have subjected him to the classic kidnapping aka rendition, meaning that he would have been beaten, drugged, and carted off to wake up in a black site prison in Egypt, Poland, or Guantanamo Bay.
Otherwise, the CIA could have had recourse to the usual extralegal wetwork.
We must also assume that the new U.S. Cybercommand with its vast resources would have little trouble shutting down the Wikileaks mirror sites, no matter how numerous they might be. The same goes for Anonymous and other flanking organizations of Wikileaks. But these considerations are purely fantastic.
Assange emerges today as the pampered darling and golden boy of The New York Times, Der Spiegel, The Guardian, El Pais - in short, of the entire Anglo-American official media Wurlitzer.
He reclines today in baronial splendor in the country house of a well-connected retired British officer who should be quizzed by the media about his ties to British intelligence.
The radical-chic world, from Bianca Jagger to
Michael Moore, is at Assange’s feet.
Originally, the group was programmed to attack China, and its board was heavily larded with fishy Chinese dissidents and “democracy” activists from the orbit of the Soros foundations.
Interestingly, the first big publicity breakthrough for Wikileaks in the mainstream U.S. media was provided by an infamous totalitarian liberal today ensconced in the Obama White House - none other than Cass Sunstein.
In Sunstein’s op-ed published in the Washington Post of February 24, 2007 under the title “Brave new Wikiworld,” we read:
How interesting that Sunstein was present at the
creation of the new Wikileaks psywar operation!
In his January 2008 Harvard Law School Working
Paper entitled “Conspiracy Theories,” Sunstein infamously demanded that the
United States government deploy groups of covert operatives and
pseudo-independent agents of influence for the “cognitively infiltration of
extremist groups” - meaning organizations, activists and Internet websites
who espouse beliefs which Sunstein chooses to classify as “false conspiracy
As Assange told Belfast Telegraph reporter Matthew Bell last July,
In other words, Assange argues that the truth about 9/11 truth is not nearly as radical as the various scandals which Wikileaks claims to expose.
But the scandals Assange is offering target
mostly the adversaries of the CIA.
He reportedly spent several years in the menticidal Anne Hamilton-Byrne cult (also known as The Family and Santiniketan) near Melbourne, Australia.
Here little children were separated from their parents and made to ingest,
Dozens of children were told that Hamilton-Byrne was their real mother, and had their hair dyed blond.
Anne Hamilton-Byrne reportedly regarded blond hair as a sign of racial superiority. Careful observers will have noted that Assange’s hair is sometimes blond, sometimes more brownish, raising the question of whether his grooming practices are a residue of his time with Hamilton-Byrne, whom he says he does not remember.
When other kids were getting cookies and milk, was Assange being lobotomized by LSD and other potent psychopharmaca dished up by Hamilton-Byrne?
There is evidence pointing in that direction.
Will the youth of the world, already burned by
their recent fatuous obsession with
Obama, be duped again by such an
Pentagon Papers Whitewashed CIA, Blamed Army, Demonized
This reminds us of an earlier CIA limited hangout operation, the one known as the Pentagon Papers.
This was a carefully screened selection of historical documents, supplemented by outright forgeries, relating to the Vietnam War and compiled by Morton Halperin and Leslie Gelb, both of whom have gone on to glittering careers in the imperialist foreign policy establishment - Gelb became president of the Council on Foreign Relations, while Halperin serves today as chief political officer of the Soros wolfpack of foundations.
The papers were leaked by former RAND Corporation official Daniel Ellsberg, who had been a very bellicose hawk in Vietnam before a suspicious Damascus Road conversion to pacifism, and then published in the U.S. establishment press - similarly to Assange today. There was nothing in the Pentagon papers which a casual reader of LeMonde or Corriere della Sera did not already know.
But, as Mort Sahl later said, left liberals have generally had very few heroes, so they battened on to Ellsberg and lionized him - led by Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, and some others.
(This is a syndrome which we see again today: at
the moment when Obama’s treacherous sellout on the Bush tax cuts was
providing a final disillusionment for many gullible left libs, Assange
arrived on the scene as their new Savior. Not by chance, Ellsberg has now
designated Assange as his own reincarnation, and thus surely the new
The Pentagon Papers systematically hid the salient political fact of the entire Vietnam era, which is that President John F. Kennedy before he was assassinated was preparing to end the de facto U.S. combat role in that country. Instead, Kennedy was systematically demonized and smeared, emerging as the villain of the piece.
Needless to say, the Pentagon papers throw no
light whatsoever on the CIA role in the Kennedy assassination - in the
same way that Assange’s various document dumps tell us nothing of
importance about 9/11, the Rabin assassination, Iran-contra, the 1999
bombing of Serbia, the Kursk incident, the various CIA color revolutions,
or many of the other truly big covert operations of the past decades.
That is the common denominator of the CIA’s
limited hangout operations from Ellsberg to Philip Agee to Assange, with so
many other “former” CIA operatives turned “whistleblowers” along the way.
