Wikileaks Greatest Hits: the UFO Cables

Wikileaks has done so many great things by now -- such as reporting that Steve Jobs died of AIDS, attempting to extort cash from anyone who might have exchanged emails with Freddy Balzan, feeding the rightwing's phony Climategate scandal with East Anglia emails, faking a NYT column, or helping the dictator of Belarus identify his domestic enemies -- that it's getting hard for Assange fans to remember it all!

So let's refresh our memories about the UFO cables!

5. Interesting

I don't want to limit this to Wikileaks, but yes, they're acting like a cult. They're acting like a religion. They're acting like a government. They're acting like a bunch of spies. They're hiding their identity. They don't account for the money. They promise all sorts of good things. They seldom let you know what they're really up to. They have rituals and all sorts of wonderful stuff. So I admire them for their showmanship and their entertainment value. But I certainly would not trust them with information if it had any value, or if it put me at risk or anyone that I cared about at risk.

Nevertheless, it's a fascinating development that's come along, to monetize this kind of thing. That's what they're up to. You start with free samples.

15. Julian and Cryptome parted ways less than amicably.

 

it I suspect that John Young's wife sniffed out Julian's bullshit pretty quickly.

6. I'd hate for anyone to forget what Wikileaks has actually done, and frankly

I'm kinda losing track of it myself

So when I wondered "What has Wikileaks done on the UFO issue?" I was surprised to find these links, which I either never knew about or which I had somehow forgotten about

7. LOL! You've been obsessively posting WikiLeaks/Assange smears for a year+ now.

At all hours of the day.

I can't imagine there are even casual DU readers who aren't familiar with your posting habits on this matter.

The little smeary "preamble" in your message, which was clearly your reason for posting and had nothing to do with UFO's, was the point. It looks like you got so excited to post the smear you forgot the UFO part entirely and had to add it after the fact, as your edit history on this OP indicates.

One is free to believe what one wants, correct?

14. You're accusing me of calling you a "Clintonista"?...

That should be easy to prove, right? I look forward to a link to support your accusation.

Or, you could edit your post to make it clear who you're accusing of calling you a "Clintonista".
