Was WikiLeaks a False Flag operation?

It’s possible. The idea has occurred to me in the past; to date, nothing that WikiLeaks has published is truly damaging ( I speak in terms of national security; the damage to personal reputations is something different ). Hell, from a certain perspective, the US State Department comes of looking like it’s actually doing its job. Seriously– who doesn’t think that the Saudis “will fight to the last American”?

But, why then the persecution of Julian Assange– or, rather, why such an obviously contrived persecution of Julian Assange? Any half-way decent espionage agency could have “retired” Assange with little fuss or muss. Why then the high-profile, low-plausibility rape charge? I suspect that there has either been 1) a serious experience-drain amongst our intelligence agencies, or (something I suspect may be closer to the truth) 2) this is a part of a proxy-war between one or more of our intelligence agencies against the Obama Administration.

Stop for a second and let that sink in: one of the alphabet soup companies has decided to take the President down a peg. If that doesn’t worry you, then you’re taking anti-anxiety drugs the likes of which my doctor won’t prescribe me.

  1. Good post. It really bothers me that there’s no reference in any of the cables to the “strategic” reasons (i.e. control of Middle East oil) for the US war in Afghanistan and Pakistan. According to former intelligence operative Wayne Madsen, Assange’s sources (CIA?) redacted the cables before they fed them to Wikileaks. I’m inclined to believe this.

    We have yet to find any mention whatsoever of Pentagon and CIA support for the Baloch separatist movement – or the secession of oil and mineral rich Balochistan from Pakistan to become a US client state – just like Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan and the other former Soviet republics. And nothing about the CIA training young Baloch separatists in bomb making and other terrorist activities to disrupt operations at the Chinese-built Gwadar Port (part of the energy transit route for Iranian oil and natural gas headed for China).

    I blog about this at http://www.stuartbramhall.com. I’ve put up a great map originally posted by the Free Balochistan movement – depicting a new state somewhat larger than the rest of Pakistan.

    John Young has been pointing this out for a couple of years now, Assange’s motivations are irrelevant he could sincerely believe he’s leading a charge as a noble Hacktivist citizen journalist and still be a tool peddling selective disclosures that are just limited hang-outs that fulfill policy imperatives of others.

    Your point about the Free Balochistan movement is spot on, in any case…
