I hope people see what I see now...the last leaks (and all prior) have done nothing....and mostly are made up of old news reported years ago
It shocks me how many people actually trust, 100%, that some hacker guy can go country-to-country, living out of a backpack, wanted by interpol, the
CIA, and other agencies, and NOT get caught or shut down.
But SO MANY people say-
"oh Mask, shut up! Wikileaks is the hero!"
Sorry...but this last leak did nothing but reinforce my original thoughts...and basically convince me I am right.
Enjoy Assange telling "you" what to believe...and enjoy his "propaganda" that seems clearly designed to cover criminal butts and bring us to

You know after their last few tweets I made a thread about my doubts ( here
). You have been saying this all along, I'll give you that! I was/am really Wikileaks pro, but these last few Tweets of random content such as
"Hilary is taking aggressive steps - By the way DONATE to us" has made me climb on a fence regarding the validity of Wikileaks and their intentions.
They make over $200K a year, and will probably make more now, why would they need to advertise for more donations? Its like, "Hey, we released 250
odd cables - just a reminder that we want money for doing it".
It's not patriotic or in anyway honest. They are taking the FREE
out of the "FREEdom of Speech". Real hackers and journalists are all about
the story and exposing it, not making money from it. Yeh its good to be able to pay for servers and bandwidth usage etc, but $200 should cover that.
Besides it is not as if Assange needs the money for plane tickets, the guy is grounded wherever he is.
I only recently became aware of John Young's link to Wikileaks via a user on Youtube yesterday. I was shocked, no wonder John is furious at them; and
there was me thinking it was competition and ego wars!
I'm going to stay on the fence now, out of Wikileaks side, and out of the other side; I seriously just don't know and I'm being honest when I say
that. I don't know, maybe because Julian seems to be a nice quiet guy who was a hacker and his background story is interesting and the angry
reactions of TPTB are good to watch.
Maybe there is something going on in the back boiler?
Too many donation Tweets for me, money talk is not good; especially when the group is unknown. If they want people on their side they should stop
asking for money because that is exactly what drew my attention to a possible sway in my opinion towards/against them.
