Warning Americans about the dangers of “false narratives” CIA Director Mike Pompeo on Thursday compared Wikileaks to “a hostile intelligence service” in his first major addresses since being tapped by President Donald Trump to lead America’s top spy agency.

“WikiLeaks walks like a hostile intelligence service and talks like a hostile intelligence service,” Mr. Pompeo said during a speech at the Washington think tank, The Center for Strategic and International Studies. “It is like a non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by foreign governments like Russia.

Last month the rogue leaking website published thousands of documents it described as secret CIA files detailing the agency’s hacking abilities, including tools it alleged the U.S. government uses to break into computers, mobile phones and even smart TVs.

Mr. Pompeo said WikiLeaks overwhelming focuses on the U.S. and encourages people to actually join the CIA to steal intelligence. He also targeted its founder, Julian Assange, and detailed his connections to Islamic terrorist organizations.

4. Pompeo is another GOP fool who doesn't think people can look up his record

of public remarks on the internet. In this case, he cited a Wikileaks dump during the campaign as "proof", and it came up during his confirmation hearing:

...."Maine senator Angus King endearingly said that Pompeo had “sent out a Twitter” citing DNC emails released by WikiLeaks as “proof” that Hillary Clinton’s nomination was “fixed.” Pompeo said he couldn’t remember the tweet, insisting, “I have never believed that WikiLeaks was a credible source of information.” The tweet, for the record, is below.

5. Pompeo spread Wikileaks lies from his own Congressional

twitter account during the 2016 campaign. So, of course he knows.

This may actually be one of the few honest statements Pompeo has made, though. Of course Wikileaks is a hostile intelligence service. Our own intelligence services are being devastatingly cracked by others. Like after the invention of gunpowder, a whole new type of warfare.
