Second to last bullet point:
If you have information which you believe might be of interest to the CIA in pursuit of the CIA's foreign intelligence mission, you may use
our e-mail form. We will carefully protect all information you provide, including your identity. The CIA, as a foreign intelligence agency, does not
engage in US domestic law enforcement.
See the implied "we will not cooperate with law enforcement" in their message?
WikiLeaks accepts classified, censored or otherwise restricted material of political, diplomatic or ethical significance.
WikiLeaks does not accept rumour, opinion or other kinds of first hand reporting or material that is already publicly available.
If your submission matches this criteria we will publish and keep published the document you submitted. The information you submit will be technically
anonymized and we do not retain any information on you. We will never cooperate with anyone seeking to identify you.
See it in theirs? These are the same messages intended for different audiences.
They have a website for law abiding people to provide them with information and they have a website for people who steal their information from them
to identify themselves.
"WikiLeaks accepts classified, censored or otherwise restricted material of political, diplomatic or ethical significance."
"If you have information which you believe might be of interest to the CIA in pursuit of the CIA's foreign intelligence mission, you may use our
Is saying an identical thing. Information of "political, diplomatic, or ethical significance" is the same as "of inerest to the CIA in pursuit of
the CIA's foreign intelligence mission"
They issue controlled releases, but of what? Really, what did releasing the video they just released accomplish? "War is horrible!"
So what? That video was not nearly as damaging as Abu Garabi. They claim they are stalked by CIA agents.
Let me ask you this, if you were the head of the CIA and you thought it was pretty likely that people within your organization were leaking to
wikileaks, wouldn't you compartmentalize any strategies against wikileaks? If only four people know about the plan, and other people are kept in the
dark but given specific orders with minimal info, then any significant leak (the whole entire plan was 'leaked', magically) would be minimal and any
major leak would be recognizable as the fault of only a very small number of individuals (eg no one would #in leak it).
On top of that, wikileaks is constantly trying to get lots and lots of money, they are constantly being 'tailed' by james bond but if you just help
them raise several hundred thousand dollars then they'll be able to give out this information!
Wikileaks screams intelligence community, either domestic or foreign, to me. It might not be united states intelligence agency though.
No matter how you look at it wikileaks collects intelligence and then controls the release of that intelligence
. "We're releasing the video
on March 5th."
Wikileaks = Honeypot or deep reconnaissance or both.
