I just did a thread about this, but when I posted it my computer crashed, so I'm glad you made one.
John Young, who runs cryptome.org (a site older than wikileaks), has claimed that wikileaks is a CIA front. Wayne Madsen has also said he believes
that wikileaks is a CIA front. The documents recently released from the Afghan war implicate pakistan is funding resistance, which plays nicely into a
ramp up of military activity expanding our empire in the middle east, as first outlined by Zbigniew Brzezinski in 'the grand chessboard'. The first
consequence of the leaks has been the administration threatening Pakistan, which doesn't make any logical sense at all.
1) Our intelligence agencies created most of these other agencies, and have very strong ties to the ISI (Pakistan's intelligence agency)
2) The military already had these documents, so why are we just now moving on Pakistan, unless these documents were released to stir up public support
for a ramp up of military operations in Pakistan?
Also, Assange appears to be trained at engaging crowds, and recently on a talk show did some things I believe were planned. He takes off his jacket
(reminiscent of what Obama did), and then his cell phone rings (planned?) a minute into the interview. While these things may be coincidental, they
may not be. By the end he has the place giving a standing ovation.
Another factor leading me to believe wikileaks may not be as altruistic as they claim is their excessive fundraising. Cryptome is a similar site, and
it costs just over $100 to keep that site running. Wikileaks fundraising goals were around 5 million.
None of these things mean absolutely that it is a front, but the evidence is mounting.
