Two days ago 70 websites were closed down by the department of Justice. No judge, no jury and no court hearing. Their argument? They allowed torrent downloads.
So if it is so easy to close down websites why is Wikileaks still up and running? The Pentagon has a whole department dedicated to being able to stop cyber “terrorism” and Julian Assange can run rings around them with his Robin Hood antics.
The alleged perpetrator Pt. Manning who “stole” the secret documents is in solitary confinement and not even his family is allowed to visit him. We don’t know his story but with the political situation in the US being what it is he will probably be called an enemy combatant and will not be allowed to have a court hearing and he will disappear into the system never to be heard from again.
But Julian Assange is a different story.
Who is he and were is he coming from and how come he can travel freely around the world and disappear from the face of it at will? I don’t know about you but if I travel I have to have my passport on me and have to give statements once or twice as to why I’m travelling and and were I will be staying and while you can always lie about your whereabouts the fact is that Julian Assange is quite recognisable to say the least and with all the attention he generates I’m sure he is tracked just about all the time.
But never the less he, much like the other boogieman dressed in a white jellaba and turban with a grey white beard, comes and goes without the CIA or any other international squirrelly police department being able to apprehend him for even the most basic accusations such as his alleged involvement with sexual harassment in Zweden. In fact he can be on Larry King live and disappear again.
If that does not strike you as odd I don’t know what will. Real live Jason Bournes simply don’t get away with what Julian Assange has been doing and stay free. Not for very long anyway.
This is what journalist and writer Webster Tarpley has to say about Julian Assange and its pretty damning. For example he wants to know who pays for Assange’s nomadic existence? How does he have access to the front page of some of the most prestigious newspapers while it is so difficult to get anything in if you are not a journalist with any of these papers? How does he manage to stay free and alive giving open press conferences and TV interviews without being apprehended? Why did he not get a ten year sentence when caught hacking like so many other hackers?
And what about his so called revelations? A video in which some US soldiers shoot some poor unsuspecting Iraqis? Come on. More than a million have been killed, more than four million left the country and another four million have been internally displaced so what gives?
And his recent revelations? Hillary Clinton wants her ambassadors to spy on local politicians and the duke is an asshole and a greedy one at that and the Saudis pay money to al Qaeda? If you didn’t know these things you haven’t been paying attention.
These are not revelations but information which while irritating for Mafia bosses such as Hilary Clinton are only mildly amusing or shocking as in the case of the murdered Iraqis but only and only if you have lived with your head in a pile of sand for oh, the last 10 years.
It becomes even more suspect if you know that Assange’s operation is closely related and possibly financed by Soros, the secretive hedge fund billionaire “Philanthropist” because Soros is a man with many agendas and with an asset such as Assange to help manipulate our perception of the reality with carefully selected tid bits about people such as Hilary Clinton etc. he might just be trying to achieve those agendas. Add this to the fact that Assange is seemingly untouchable to the CIA or the Pentagon and you have a case for Assange being in their pocket too.
I put my money on the bet that Julian Assange is a patsy. A useful clown whose Robin Hoods antics keep us from real issues and will possibly even lead us into believing that we should engage in wars with Iran and Pakistan.
