I'm going to preface this by saying this is my opinion. I may be wrong.
A lot of fuss is made in the mainstream media about Julian Assange and Edward Snowden.
Assange is, as I'm sure we all know, the Wikileaks founder who is supposedly on the run from the authorities who supposedly have trumped up some rape
charges in order to arrest him and extradite him to the US for his "crimes" in exposing US interests accross the world. He is currently sitting in the
Ecuadorian Embassy in London and costing the British taxpayer a hefty amount in surveillance costs just in case he dares to try and go and get on a
plane and go somewhere else.
Snowden is the worlds currently most famous departure lounge refugee. On the run from the NSA after breaking the worst kept secret in the world that
government agencies routinely monitor all internet and electronic communications (the only thing new in his revelation was the name PRISM, those of
use who have been around the block a bit already knew about Echelon and Carnivore).
These two men are Public Enemy 1 and 2 if you believe the hype. They've done unspeakably bad things to the US Intelligence Agencies and apparently the
US wants them back to find out just what they said...
But I have a problem with these two, and it goes past their supposed actions and "heinous" crimes.
You see, they're still breathing.
Now, lets look at the opposite side of the spectrum, from two people who actually knew
knew something. He knew that the British Government completley
and utterly lied to the people of the UK in the "intelligence dossier" about Iraq that was published to try and get the public here to support the
war. So he had an off the record conversation with a BBC journalist by the name of Andrew Gillingham about it. After Gillingham hinted that Kelly was
the source of his published information regarding the claims made in the dossier Kelly was called to speak before a parliamentary select committee.
Two days after that he was dead from "haemorrhage from incised wounds of the left wrist, in combination with coproxamol ingestion and coronary artery
atherosclerosis", or supposedly suicide. However his records - including the postmortem were then sealed for 70 years.
Now the British government has since reopened the records for scruity, and claim that nothing underhand happened. Some people believe that may be the
case but others still maintain that Kelly was "suicided" in order to make sure he didn't say any more. Personally, I subscribe to that theory.
Alexander Valterovich Litvinenko
was a former Russian FSB agent who knew a thing or two about
organised crime and the black side of Russia. He came to the public eye after accusing his FSB bosses of murdering the Russian tycoon and oligarch
Boris Berezovsky. The accusations landed him in hot water and he was arrested for exceeding his authority in making them. He was tried, set free, then
arrested again in Russia before he fled to London and was given asylum by the British Government. He used his new found British status to level
accusations that the Russian secret service had staged bombings, and politically targetted executions to bring Putin to power.
One day, so the story goes, Litvinenko went out to meet two former KGB agents who introduced him to two other people who claimed to have evidence of
one of the targetted executions. Litvinenko came back from that meeting with more than a story. He came back with massive amounts of radioactive
pollonium in his bloodstream, and died 23 days later after falling ill.
His murderer was never found, and the British government have since refused a public enquiry into his death.
So here's my thought. If Assange and Snowden are still breathing, they probably don't really know too much, and the info they have isn't as
"sensitive" as we are led to believe. Both are highly credible mainstream media patsies, who get trotted out when a distraction is needed - a little
extra Oz factor? Remember - don't look at the man behind the curtain!!!
Kelly and Litvinenko, on the other hand...well they had a house drop on them.
Makes you think, doesn't it?
