Just look at Wikileaks saying Osama is alive and operating evil acts, that 911 is a false conspiracy, and that Bradly Manning (if he exists at all) is captured and detained ready to be charged if he hasn't been already (been missing the boards for two days).
PS- add to all that- I do not support stealing American documents...that is terrorism at its finest.

I absolutely agree 100%, it is obvious, blatant and disingenuous!
The capper for me was the bit about OBL not only being alive but also orchestrating terrorist attacks via Pakistan. What an absolute joke.
I love the little tidbit about 9/11 not being a false flag. I guess they thought us minions really are that stupid.

So what if the CIA runs Wikileaks? What if the CIA isn't the "bad guy" in our government, what if the CIA has the best interests of the people in mind? What if the Pentagon or another unknown agency is the real problem and the CIA is fighting against them by leaking these documents?
According to a January 2010 interview, the Wikileaks team then consisted of five people working full-time and about 800 people who worked occasionally, none of whom were compensated. Wikileaks has no official headquarters. The expenses per year are about €200,000, mainly for servers and bureaucracy, but would reach €600,000 if work currently done by volunteers were paid for. Wikileaks does not pay for lawyers, as hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal support have been donated by media organisations such as the Associated Press, The Los Angeles Times, and the National Newspaper Publishers Association. Its only revenue stream is donations, but Wikileaks is planning to add an auction model to sell early access to documents. According to the Wau Holland Foundation, Wikileaks receives no money for personnel costs, only for hardware, travelling and bandwidth
After the site was shut down by a Swiss bank in February 2008, a coalition of U.S. media that included the American Society of Newspaper Editors, Gannett, Hearst, the L.A. Times and Associated Press clubbed together to file an amicus curiae brief, forcing the original judge who had granted the injunction for the shutdown to vacate it, citing the First Amendment
