A Surge of Truth

For most of us, it is plainly clear that Wikileaks is not just an act of pure journalism -- it is also the ultimate form of true democracy...

(LONDON) - It is an "attack on the international community," said US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in reference to the release of 250.000 secret cables by Wikileaks.

Clinton is correct, this is indeed a long overdue, necessary attack on an ‘international community’ of war mongers and war criminals.

The leaked cables reveal a very gloomy picture of the state of our world current affairs : It unveils a clear dichotomy between the people of the world and our conflict driven political leadership.

For most of us, it is plainly clear that Wikileaks is not just an act of pure journalism -- it is also the ultimate form of true democracy: it respects the most sacred liberal principle, namely, ‘the right to know’.

The White House has ordered government agencies to tighten their handling of classified documents.

But I guess that there is not much they, or anyone else can do to prevent those leaks now : ultimately, it is human beings who are implementing those global-Zionist murderous policies -- and evidently, human beings are humane and even brave enough to blow the whistle.

Mrs. Clinton said it was essential that 'the diplomatic community' be able to conduct private communications. Yet, it is also essential that people out there know more of the plans of our diplomats and leaders. Especially when these plans lead to genocidal actions.

"Every country, including the United States, must be able to have honest, private dialogue with other countries about issues of common concern," said Clinton, and I wonder, what is so “honest” about Mossad chief Meir Dagan partially agitating, with his American counterparts, a student coup in Iran?

Clinton wouldn't comment on specific details, but did say - for example - that it showed concerns about Iran were real, widely shared and well founded.

She is indeed correct -- both Israel and King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia urged the US to destroy Iran's nuclear facilities. Seemingly, once again America has been caught in bed with the world’s darkest regimes.

Unlike Clinton, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad performed a gesture of real leadership and true responsibility today -- He actually dismissed the leaks in an attempt to strengthen Tehran's relations with its neighbours.

He realises that peace is patriotic. He must have realised that peace is popular.

Excuse me but does anyone remember 911? How we knew but did nothing with the available information to at least try something other than sit back and wait. Can't have a leak without a hole. The problem is from within. Why wasn't that stuff properly secured? Ever hear of Fort Knox? Stop blaiming others for our own incompetence.

With all due respect, it has become obvious that wikileaks is a set-up probably an israeli front. Many reasons why, the evidence is overwhelming. The so-called "truth" spoken of here, I already knew about. Nothing new. The things I did not know about, like Saudi Arabia wanting the U.S. to bomb Iran, seem to all support israel. Interesting. Also, DHS shut down about 80 websites during the wikileaks release time, for things such as copy infringement etc. They could have just as easily shut down the wikileaks release...They didnt. There is more, but you get the point.
