Is Wikileaks for real? Monday’s guest on Truth Jihad Radio, Jonathan Azaziah, has ripped Wikileaks as a Mossad operation. And nothing he’s seen since then has changed his opinion.
Meanwhile the anti-9/11-truth left, i.e. the gatekeepers, are almost all Wikileaks cheerleaders. Julian Assange, like these gatekeepers, is “annoyed by 9/11 conspiracy theories.” Now Wikileaks tells us that the mean, nasty Muslim suicide hijacking plot was even bigger than we realized, aided by an al-Qaeda support network that the government never discovered. Uh-huh. Whatever you say, Julian.
Oddly, Noam Chomsky, the former 9/11 gatekeeper who now admits there is no evidence that al-Qaeda was responsible for the attacks on New York and Washington, recently cast doubt on Wikileaks.
The vibrant democracy movement in Tunisia was directed against “a police state, with little freedom of expression or association, and serious human rights problems,” ruled by a dictator whose family was hated for their venality. This was the assessment by U.S. Ambassador Robert Godec in a July 2009 cable released by WikiLeaks.
Therefore to some observers the WikiLeaks “documents should create a comforting feeling among the American public that officials aren’t asleep at the switch” – indeed, that the cables are so supportive of U.S. policies that it is almost as if Obama is leaking them himself (or so Jacob Heilbrunn writes in The National Interest.)
“America should give Assange a medal,” says a headline in the Financial Times. Chief foreign-policy analyst Gideon Rachman writes that “America’s foreign policy comes across as principled, intelligent and pragmatic … the public position taken by the U.S. on any given issue is usually the private position as well.”
In this view, WikiLeaks undermines the “conspiracy theorists” who question the noble motives that Washington regularly proclaims.
Is Chomsky joining the Wiki-skeptics? Or is he intentionally distracting us from the obvious fact that Wikileaks has generally damaged US interests while supporting Israeli ones – as Azaziah argues persuasively
Tune in Monday to Truth Jihad Radio, 1 to 3 pm Central on AmericanFreedomRadio.com, to hear two full hours of Jonathan Azaziah, and perhaps a surprise guest or two, debating the Wikileaks issue!
