Excellent researcher and anti-fascist resistant Dave Emory presented part of a blog post published on Extreme Liberal’s blog. The post contains an extract from a series of online chats between Bradley Manning and former hacker Adrian Lamo. In this series, originally published it is entirety on Wired.com, we see that Manning presented himself to Adrian Lamo as the source not only of the Gitmo files but also of several other key documents that WikiLeaks obtained. So for the first time, Manning is specifically named as a source for WikiLeaks. But not only that. Among all of the files, another document shows that there is evidence that the State Department or some intelligence agency within the american government might have known where bin Laden was, since 2003. In other terms, because Manning might have inadvertently blown the operation that was coming, god knows when, to crack down on bin Laden in Abbottabad, the Administration was rushed to do it out of fear that he would otherwise escape. WikiLeaks began releasing the Gitmo files on April 24th 2011 and the operation on bin Laden’s hideout was conducted on May 1st. It is difficult not to see a connection. Read my earlier post to see how I assed the situation 48 hours after the event.
I hope you are not one of those who believe that Bradley Manning is really a « whistleblower ». On that I agree with Emory and Extreme Liberal’s blog webmaster. If there is a thing on Earth that Manning is not, it is being that. Why? Because a whistleblower will denounce a situation closely related to his/her professional skills and area of expertise, not on thousands of issues disconnected to one another. Manning released a thumbnail disc that contains thousands of files. We can all assume that he didn’t read the vast majority of them, for reasons of time to start with. So what was his goal in doing that? A few possibilities that we can identify in trying to explain his strange behavior is that he is a mind-control job, he is being manipulated, he has been promissed a chunk of cash…or he is just stupid, immature and crazy. Make your pick. Because it is obvious that he would get in jail for such behavior. Believe me folks, he is not a whistleblower. His actions play into a broader agenda of destabilization of the liberal and progressive political class, represented in the United States by the Democratic Party. The files that he « whistleblowned » will just help the enemies of democracy to break down a world that is already pretty much weakened by the incessant attacks of fascists, nazis and all kinds of groups of the Extreme-Right, with the help of their Extreme-Left and Islamist puppets. Folks, I am telling you: don’t bite into the Bradley Manning story and the WikiLeaks deception. Stay focus on democracy, on progressive and liberal values and on the political way of the Center. The truth lies in the Center and that Center shall set you free.
