Replying to your part about the Washington Post:
First: It has been the same way for the other leaks. Either Wikileaks gives them to one news agency (or two) an they continue sharing or they do it
over a "anonym mailbox"
What would you do knowing probably every secret agency is behind you and wants to stop the transfer and the leak. As an agent my first approach would
be to block the possibilites of the transfer happening. Stopping the first transfer of the information would be the best approach.
I'm sure almost any hacker who releases sensitive stuff (secret cables, new torrent releases, whatever) does this over an anonymised way.
Say the Gov knows your going to give information to XY. They don't know where you are hidding but where XY is. So i think the gov would park themselfs
infront of the XY House and wait for you to appear.
I don't see anything wierd or unusual in this.
An about the George Soros connection... well check your sources... the stuff about Soros and Assange alrdy cam up some months ago. The 'information'
this alleged relationship is based on are vague, false or just not there (made up).
- Russia says: Wikileaks is US Gov. work
- Some bloggers say: It's NWO with george soros
- U.S say: Wikileaks are terrorists
- Turkey says: Wikileaks = Isreael
i think we should trust wikileaks more then Putin, the U.S Gov. or some blogger.
The Info is out there. For the cables Wikileaks itself says that there is no proof that they are correct or whatever.
You are free to read, analyse and use this info. As it goes for all the info you're getting (MSM, Inet, Books).
What you, the MSN or other make out of the Info is totally your /their choice.
Do you really think the MSN will report on everything that's in the cables - or will they leave out parts (and pushing others) hoping no one will
Criticism an Scepticism is always good. And i myself question the authenticity of wikileaks everyday. Your thread (and others) are very helpfull to
get a more objectiv overview on that matter. So thank you.
Nonetheless i can't agree with you
