US can't link Julian Assange to Bradley Manning: report


www.rawstory.com

One avenue by which the United States could press charges against Julian Assange appeared to have closed Monday, with US military officials' admission that they can't find a link between the WikiLeaks founder and PFC Bradley Manning, the alleged source of WikiLeaks' State Department cables.

News reports late last year indicated that the US was trying to build a criminal conspiracy case against Assange through evidence that he aided Manning when the Army private allegedly copied more than a quarter million classified State Department cables onto CD and walked away with them.

And yet ANOTHER angle which 'prosecutors' have come up empty handed against Assange, despite them trying just about any angle they can to hang him on some charge.

So he WAS telling the truth after all, that he had no hand in Manning's aquiring of the docs he obtained.

I'm sure there will be more charges coming, especially in light of Assange's promise to begin releasing new material in the coming months. Just wonder what types of charges TPTB will trump up against him next?

This guy has proven to be quite adept at covering his bases thus far...

I was going to write a lengthy opinion but then I remembered a quote by someone that captures my feelings regarding this development in a more briefly, and certainly eloquently, fashion than me:

Does it seem weird to anyone else that the gov't doesn't even try to find a more high ranking patsy than Manning? It seems obvious to me (and should to most others who pay attention) that Manning is far too low ranking to access the clearances that must be needed to walk off with all those documents. And perhaps he could access military documents...but how does low ranking member of the military get state department documents?!

Sorry if this has already been asked, I'm new here.

Manning had access to SIPRNet.

The Secret Internet Protocol Router Network (SIPRNet) is "a system of interconnected computer networks used by the United States Department of Defense and the U.S. Department of State to transmit classified information (up to and including information classified SECRET) by packet switching over the TCP/IP protocols in a 'completely secure' environment"

Manning was used.

Watch this 11 minute interview with Cryptome's co-founder John Young. It is worth the 11 minutes. And while Russia Today is more than a bit biased; I get the feeling Young knew this going into the interview, but needed an outlet to let people hear what he had to say.

I have yet to come across any good sources that identified Manning as the source for Cable gate. There where some reasonable assessments that he was involved with one of the Iraq videos, but a lack of action at the time it was released makes me suspect to this. Having people release uncomfortable facts without punishment is not good for a fascist regime and challenges its authority. This whole case appears to be more about using fear to keep people quite than a search for justice.
