US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has denounced the release of classified diplomatic cables as an “attack on the international community”.
Mrs. Clinton also stated:
“This disclosure is not just an attack on America’s foreign policy interests,” she said. It is an attack on the international community: the alliances and partnerships, the conversations and negotiations that safeguard global security and advance economic prosperity.”
This is quite bizarre. Global security through murders and killings? Exposing American forces savagery in Iraq is now a threat and/or attack on the international community? Insulting world leaders while schmoozing up to these world dictators, is justified as “partnership? Let me get this straight: Saddam was accused of hiding WMD, invaded a sovereign country next door and was immediately dealt with, toppled, executed and the country is in complete chaos. We “brought Iraq democracy.” Or so we’d like to claim while millions of innocent people including children have been executed by our forces!
Yet, Israel, a terrorist nation of Apartheid and NaZionism continues with its crimes against humanity – and we quickly reward this nation of terrorists and Nazis with more advanced planes and weapons.
But why are these leaked “secrets” considered a threat to our National Security? Let’s look at some:
As to diplomats’ portrayals of world leaders, Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi is said to have been described as feckless, vain and ineffective and sharing a close relationship with the “alpha dog”, Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin.
President Nicolas Sarkozy of France is said to be thin-skinned and authoritarian, while German Chancellor Angela Merkel is described as risk-averse.
Corruption in Afghanistan with concerns heightened when a senior official was found to be carrying more than $52m (£33m) in cash on a foreign trip
Meanwhile, Libya’s Colonel Muammar Gaddafi always travels with a “voluptuous blonde” Ukrainian nurse, according to one of the cables.
This is such sensitive information! After all, the voluptuous Ukrainian nurse is really another form of WMD! And the $52 million in cash? Secret? I say this is just the type of story I expect to hear on the 7 o’clock news!
Wikileaks has posted only some of the 200 of the 251,287 messages it says it has obtained. However, the entire bundle of cables has been made available to five publications, including the New York Times and the UK’s Guardian newspaper. Will more “secrets” be revealed to the cattle (human race) of the world? If it “serves our foreign policy and national interests,” you bet… and other trash is revealed or leaked to us so that we would think there’s really nothing of value in these leaked secrets!
For example, Wikileaks argues the release of the documents has shed light on the wars, including allegations of torture and reports that suggest 15,000 additional civilian deaths happened in Iraq. We also know that… but the sad truth is that Banning, the one accused of such leaks, is imprisoned… as the news reported this morning (Tuesday November 30, 2010) for releasing a video of American forces in a helicopter, executing Iraqi civilians indiscriminately. I remember the story well: when it was first reported, we were told that these people were insurgents… then the truth came out briefly and the story quickly buried and disappeared!
But if another country committed such atrocities, we would be invading them to restore “justice.”
And if an “ally” committed the same atrocities, we praise them for their self-control in not killing more civilians!
This is exactly why Private First Class Bradley Manning is in jail!
