U.S. Senate Wants To Label WikiLeaks A “Non-State Hostile Intelligence Service”

By Aaron Kesel

The U.S. Senate is considering a bill that would classify WikiLeaks as a “non-state hostile intelligence service” bundled as part of the 2018 Intelligence Authorization Act. Presumably, that classification would authorize the use of force against WikiLeaks.

“It is the sense of Congress that WikiLeaks and the senior leadership of WikiLeaks resemble a non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors and should be treated as such a service by the United States,” a section of the Act reads.

The Act almost unanimously passed a Senate panel last month 14-1, rejected by only one man, Sen. Ron Wyden, an Oregon Democrat who staunchly opposed the measure due to the provision that was snuck in about WikiLeaks.

“The language in the bill suggesting that the U.S. government has some unstated course of action against ‘non-state hostile intelligence services’ is equally troubling,” Wyden said in a press release. “The damage done by WikiLeaks to the United States is clear. But with any new challenge to our country, Congress ought not react in a manner that could have negative consequences, unforeseen or not, for our constitutional principles. The introduction of vague, undefined new categories of enemies constitutes such an ill-considered reaction.”

“The use of the novel phrase ‘non-state hostile intelligence service’ may have legal, constitutional and policy implications, particularly should it be applied to journalists inquiring about secrets,” said Senator Wyden.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions previously said in April that the arrest of WikiLeaks’ publisher Julian Assange was a “priority” for the DOJ.

“We are going to step up our effort and already are stepping up our efforts on all leaks,” he said. “This is a matter that’s gone beyond anything I’m aware of. We have professionals that have been in the security business of the United States for many years that are shocked by the number of leaks and some of them are quite serious. So yes, it is a priority. We’ve already begun to step up our efforts and whenever a case can be made, we will seek to put some people in jail,” Sessions said.

Meanwhile, CIA Director Mike Pompeo has regularly labeled WikiLeaks a “non-state hostile intelligence service,” the same term used in the Senate bill.

WikiLeaks, an international non-profit whistleblowing organization, has leaked at least 10 million classified documents to date from various governments including the United States. In 2016, the group published a number of documents and emails from the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Hillary Clinton’s campaign chair John Podesta that suggested the DNC deliberately tried to discredit presidential candidate Bernie Sanders over then-Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

As both the current and former administrations continue forward with an ongoing seven-year investigation into WikiLeaks since their 2010 leak of almost 100,000 State and Defense Department secret documents dubbed Cablegate pertaining to U.S. military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, neither administration has been able to charge a single member of WikiLeaks with a criminal indictment.

In that case, only the source of the leak was punished: former U.S. intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning, who spent spent the last seven years in prison before former U.S. President Barack Obama commuted 28 years of her 35-year sentence on his way out of office, calling it “very disproportionate relative to what other leakers have received” and that “it makes sense to commute and not pardon her sentence.”

Julian Assange, WikiLeaks’ publisher, is currently holed up in the Ecuadorian embassy in London, where he has been illegally detained in arbitrary detention, according to a UN panel. Assange has been held against his will, isolated from his children, since June 2012. He faces extradition to Sweden to face sexual assault allegations that have been repeatedly dismissed, and is an investigation that’s since been dropped by Swedish prosecutors.

The other aim of the bill is to assure that all secret and clandestine missions are approved by the president and that Congress is made aware of all military operations.

Here’s Julian Assange speaking with Ron Paul a few months ago about the “War on Truth”:

    Caligula’s horse had a higher IQ then the US Senate.
    The horse’s ASS had a higher IQ then the US Senate.
    What the horse LEFT BEHIND has a higher IQ then the US Senate.
    I hold nothing but contempt and scorn for that collection of thieves, liars and traitors.
    Wikileaks has done great service to America and Julian Assange should be given a statue that the COWARDS of the Senate would then refuse to defend.

    the truth about corrupt govt is hostile to who ?

    • freewheelinfranklin543 | August 24, 2017 at 1:16 pm | Reply

      The corrupt government!

    • Given Wikileaks is a CIA operation for social engineering and to control the flow of potentially damaging leaks from true independent sources globalresearch.ca/who-is-behind-wikileaks-2/22389 , at this point the continuous release of information on corruption is serving to demoralize the public into accepting a different form of government. A form that is more draconian and restrictive than the one we have now.

      That’s the reason Trump was selected to create a POTUS persona the MSM uses to mold it’s imagery to further polarize the nation.

      Expect global Technocracy to be forced upon us through a combination of fear and seductive promises.

  3. Personally I liked and preferred candidate Trump and what he stood for (and who praised Wikileaks) compared to today’s president “flip-flop” pro-warmonger Trump who now says he doesn’t like Wikileaks. So when is crooked Hillary and her gang of the “enemies within” going to brought to justice again??? Behind building that wall and attempting at getting this country in financial order after Obama’s $20 trillion of debt, going after crooked Hillary is why I voted for Donald. To put that treasonous witch in prison where she belongs.

  4. The “Senate” is just as corrupt as the House. WikiLeaks is a threat with the truth to just how corrupt our Congress is so they attack out of self-protection. I didn’t vote for Trump (nor Hillary) but my feelings about him are more positive as time goes on. The one major issue that prevents me from being over the moon over him is his support of Israel’s genocide of Palestinians. Unfortunately, he’s listening to Kushner’s (Mossad Agent) advice. He needs to kick that Zionist/Nazi to the curb…get him OUT of the WH.

    • James Innewmex | August 26, 2017 at 8:50 am | Reply

      Israel is a Zionist enclave, not a Jewish state. Research Khazaria and the Khazars.

    • Wikileaks is an intelligence operation. Note Dr. Chossudovsky’s article in the link above. Assange has always been hostile to 9/11 Truth calling it a “false conspiracy”. See the next link. http://911blogger.com/news/2010-07-22/wikileaks-founder-julian-assange-annoyed-911-truth

      Assange asked Freedom House (a CIA front) to sit on Wikileaks advisory board. Also, he had a Rothschild lawyer, and has been close to Establishment figures, etc.

      The release of “leaks” on govt corruption is a social engineering project and one objective is to get people to give up any semblance of elected governments. This is also true for the “Panama Papers” and “Humpty Dumpty” leaks in Russia. The “Vati-Leaks” scandal was done to reform Catholic doctrine to be more in line with the NWO new ‘religion’. The butler was a cover story, admitted in a BBC documentary. More social engineering.

      • Actually, this isn’t the first time I’ve heard that Assange was working with the CIA. That being that case, why isn’t our Congress trying to make the CIA an unlawful entity and shutting it down? That would get rid of the CIA AND Assange in one fell swoop…No? I am very aware that Deep State personalities want to get rid of our Congress altogether…certainly Dick Cheney is one of them and he’s said as much. I am a Constitution supporter and believe for any form of good government, we need to honor and respect our Constitution. That means, under no circumstances should our Congress be disbanded. But that does not mean we should continue to ignore the corrupt politicians that are running it…politicians that are being Blackmailed or bought-and-paid-for by the Deep State, of which Blackmail is a CIA operation called “Brownstone”. The Vatican is already a partner to the Deep State and has been for Centuries and received greater protection by Mussolini (Fascist/Communist) when he allowed the Vatican to be a country, with all the rights of sovereignty, within the country of Italy. That gave the Vatican, the Deep State’s religious center, to operate with impunity from any other laws other than it’s own. Do I need to through in the pedophile priests who are immune from any laws other than the Vatican? A very high up Catholic Archbishop in Australia, said he would rather go to prison than report a pedophile priest. Seems to me it’s that kind of thinking that’s in the Vatican itself, since that’s how they have been operating for centuries. I would call that Deep State thinking…wouldn’t you? I would also venture to say the Deep State really has no changes to be made to the Catholic religion because of that thinking. What’s truly sad about the Catholic religion and its communicants is that the communicants are so brainwashed, they keep supporting the Church, thereby, supporting the pedophilia! It is true, the NWO wants a one-world religion (one world everything, in fact)…the Catholic religion is already “IT”. I agree with you about the NWO social engineering. It’s very clear to see the Tavistock Institute has been very busy with that. A one-world currency is already in progress with the Deep State’s Blockchain initiatives of US$ vs. SDR, whereby the Dollar will cease to exist as all personal assets will be digital. Personally, I see Assange, if he is connected with the CIA, as a secondary threat, whereby the real threats are the NSA/CIA which are under the complete control of the Rothschild Banking cartel. Have always been from day of inception right after WWII. One would THINK our Congress would be shutting them down instead going after the Band-Aid (Assange) that covers the infestation. Much like our mainstream medical establishment (AMA) does. However, in a way, I can’t blame the members of Congress for their hands-off attitude, as those that did their best to speak up to stop this Deep State evil have turned up very dead. Like the many independent journalists and whistleblowers have. We are dealing with extreme evil and they have names.

  5. Unfortunately the US is a rogue nation and must keep all of its illegal and clandestine activities totally secret. Secret upon secret, day after day, month after month, year after year and never ending. A democracy cannot exist under those circumstances. A government that can only stay in power by consistently lying to its people is not one that has a moral or ethical right to exist. The American judicial system is another facet of government that has proven in practice that it cannot provide justice consistently and fairly across the board. Where a Manning is tried for disclosing “secrets” and sentenced to 35 years in prison, even though the so called secrets resulted in no proven harm, a Cheney can out a secret security agent working on non nuclear proliferation, resulting in the exposure of American foreign agents and gets no penalty. In fact he doesn’t even get investigated. So much for a fair and balanced judiciary. Attempting to destroy the press’s ability to disseminate the truth is a symptom of a dictatorship, not a democracy.

    • I agree except most of our press refuses to tell the TRUTH , the whole truth,
      without the twist and omissions to suit their personal or corporate line.

    • “A democracy cannot exist under those circumstances.”

      JFK, Yale University, June 11, 1962: “For the greatest enemy of the truth is very often not the lie – deliberate, contrived, and dishonest – but the myth – persistent, persuasive and unrealistic.”

      Justice William O. Douglas: “Since when have we Americans been expected to bow submissively to authority and speak with awe and reverence to those who represent us? The constitutional theory is that we the people are the sovereigns, the state and federal officials only our agents. We who have the final word can speak softly or angrily. We can seek to challenge and annoy, as we need not stay docile and quiet.” (dissenting opinion, Colten v. Kentucky, 407 U.S. 104 (1972))

      If you are speaking of the USA, we are NOT a democracy, we are a CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC.

      James Madison, “Father of the Constitution,” argued that in a pure democracy, “there is nothing to check the inducement to sacrifice the weaker party or an obnoxious individual.”

      Delegate Edmund Randolph agreed with Madison, saying: “In tracing these evils to their origin, every man had found it in the turbulence and follies of democracy.”

      John Adams: “Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide.”

      Alexander Hamilton: “We are a Republican Government. Real liberty is never found in despotism or in the extremes of Democracy.”

      What does that mean, “constitutional republic”? It means that the US Constitution is the definer of our government, dividing the delegated powers (authority) to the different governments – state and federal, then further dividing it between the different branches, and to named-in-writing offices within a branch; it is the supreme Law of this nation that ALL legislation must be in Pursuance thereof to be LAWFULLY binding on the American people; it is the supreme Contract that ALL who serve within our governments are required to be Oath bound to; it also puts all of this and more in writing so that it is easily accessible to all so that they can know exactly what those that serve within our governments can do, are forbidden to do, etc.

      Thomas Jefferson: “Our peculiar security is in the possession of a written Constitution. Let us not make it a blank paper by construction”.

      James Madison: “Do not separate text from historical background. If you do, you will have perverted and subverted the Constitution, which can only end in a distorted, bastardized form of illegitimate government”.

      Our allegiance and the allegiance of all who serve are to the US Constitution and each state’s Constitution, NOT to any person who serves within government or to any office within government. It is our loyalty and allegiance to the documents that are the foundations of our freedom because then EVERYONE has the knowledge of what those who serve within our government are allowed to do.

      J. Reuben Clark: “God provided that in this land of liberty, our political allegiance shall run NOT to individuals, that is, to government officials, no matter how great or how small they may be. Under His plan our allegiance and the only allegiance we owe as citizens or denizens of the United States, runs to our inspired Constitution which God himself set up. So runs the oath of office of those who participate in government. A certain loyalty we do owe to the office which a man holds, but even here we owe just by reason of our citizenship, no loyalty to the man himself. In other countries it is to the individual that allegiance runs. This principle of allegiance to the Constitution is basic to our freedom. It is one of the great principles that distinguishes this “land of liberty” from other countries”. (caps mine)

      You are correct about secrets, and they are forbidden to those who serve within our government.

      Patrick Henry, American colonial revolutionary: “The liberties of a people never were, nor ever will be, secure, when the transactions of their rulers may be concealed from them.”

      Benjamin Franklin: “In free governments the rulers are the servants, and the people their superiors and sovereigns. For the former, therefore, to return among the latter was not to degrade but to promote them.”

      What do I mean when I list both the states Constitutions and the US Constitution as being our governments?

      Mack/Printz v USA (1997), Justic Scalia, majority opinion: “It is incontestable that the Constitution established a system of “dual sovereignty”…. Although the States surrendered many of their powers to the new Federal Government, they retained “a residuary and inviolable sovereignty”…. Residual state sovereignty was also implicit, of course, in the Constitution’s conferral upon Congress of not all governmental powers, but only discrete, enumerated ones. Article 1, Section 8, which implication was rendered express by the Tenth Amendment’s assertion that “[t]he powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people”.
      The Framers’ experience under the Articles of Confederation had persuaded them that using the States as the instruments of federal governance was both ineffectual and provocative of federal state conflict. The Framers rejected the concept of a central government that would act upon and through the States, and instead designed a system in which the state and federal governments would exercise concurrent authority over the people. The great innovation of this design was that our citizens would have two political capacities, one state and one federal, each protected from
      incursion by the other” – “a legal system unprecedented in form and design, establishing two orders of government, each with its own direct relationship, its own privity, its own set of mutual rights
      and obligations to the people who sustain it and are governed by it.” (end quote)

      Justice Sandra Day O’Connor: “The Constitution does not protect the sovereignty of States for the
      benefit of the States or state governments as abstract political entities, or even for the benefit of the public officials governing the States. To the contrary, the Constitution divides authority between federal and state governments for the protection of individuals. State sovereignty is not just an end in itself: “Rather, federalism secures to citizens the liberties that derive from the diffusion of sovereign power.”

      Mack and Printz v. United States: “The Framers rejected the concept of a central government that would act upon and through the States, and instead designed a system in which the State and Federal Governments would exercise concurrent authority over the people. The Federal Government’s power would be augmented immeasurably and impermissibly if it were able to impress into its service – and at no cost to itself – the police officers of the 50 States… Federal control of state officers would also have an effect upon the separation and equilibration of powers between the three branches of the Federal Government itself.”

      “The American judicial system is another facet of government that has proven in practice that it cannot provide justice consistently and fairly across the board.”

      Those who serve within the judicial system are as corrupt as the rest who serve within our governments. Their LAWFUL duties are put into writing so that all can know what they do or are forbidden to do. Remember if it is NOT assigned (delegated) to the branch or named office within a branch in writing, then it is forbidden to those who serve within those places. Also remember that those that SERVE WITHIN our governments have NO POWER or AUTHORITY themselves, they are ALLOWED to use the authority of the branch or named office within a branch for as long as they do the duties as assigned in writing, take and KEEP the Oath.

      Thomas Jefferson: “It would be a dangerous delusion were a confidence in the men of our choice to silence our fears for the safety of our rights; that confidence is everywhere the parent of despotism; free government is founded in jealousy, and not in confidence; it is jealousy, and not confidence, which prescribes limited constitutions to bind down those whom we are obliged to trust with power; that our Constitution has accordingly fixed the limits to which, and no farther, our confidence may go…. In questions of power, let no more be said of confidence in man, but bind him down from
      mischief by the chains of the Constitution.”

      Daniel Webster: “We may be tossed upon an ocean where we can see no land – nor, perhaps, the sun or stars. But there is a chart and a compass for us to study, to consult, and to obey. That chart is the Constitution.”

      “In fact he doesn’t even get investigated. So much for a fair and balanced judiciary.”

      You are misinformed of WHO does the investigations, etc. The US Constitution, in writing, (Article 1, Section 8, Clause 15) assigns the duties to
      — Enforce the US Constitution (supreme Law and supreme contract) and each state’s Constitution (highest law and contract of the state),
      — Enforce and keep the “Laws of the Union” (which are constitutional laws ONLY),
      — Protect the country against all enemies both domestic and foreign, and
      — “to suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions”

      … to us, to the American people as the Militia of the several states. No one else has those duties delegated to them. WE retained them so that there could never be a “police state”, or military takeover by our own military.

      “Attempting to destroy the press’s ability to disseminate the truth… ”

      Daniel Webster: “Is the Constitution worth preserving?” He said, “Then guard it as you would the very seat of your life. Guard it not only against the open blows of violence but also against that spirit of change.”

        I disagree with O’ Connor’s position which resulted from Lincoln’s destruction of the lawful government on behalf of the Crown and bankers.

      • Of course the USA is not a democracy as it was founded by rich slave owning traitors who believed that their masonic ideology should be in charge. The same gang that said all men were created equal, except black ones who should be slaves and Indians that should be exterminated.

      The “U.S.” is not a nation at all but a criminal private enterprise using the labor of its American slaves to work toward its global goals of enslaving all the earth’s people and taking all the earth’s resources. Listen to John F Kennedy’s speech on secret societies and conspiracy.

    Lincoln replaced the lawful American Government with a de facto private non-state Federal Government. The U.S. Federal Government, military, intelligence agencies, the Federal Reserve, IRS, etc are all non-state hostile agencies.

  8. I have, unfortunately and tragically, experienced firsthand what Wiki Leaks does in real world crisis areas/high threat environments, and have seen the DIRECT effects (not indirect, like “whoops, we told the bad guys where your Fwd Ops Over-Watch Pos (position) is” and then watch these obviously intellectual giants (please tell me you hear the sarcasm so I don’t gotta spoon feed it) to all these people who apparently have jobs that don’t mind them taking weeks off work to demonstrate/protest and cause more divisive unrest (then complain about said divisive environment and play the blame game when all they’d need is a f–king mirror). It’s so naive! Any of you who TRULY believe such globally desired “transparency” (which will never happen…it’s like free healthcare. It sounds great, then you put your money where your mouth…er..I mean, where President is, and nothing happens EVER, or at least nothing that puts a dent in anything except the nation’s increasing debt and YOUR PERSONAL debts.) Let’s use an analogy….Putin, good guy or bad guy, I don’t care, just like Hillary/Trump—I’m an independent–and not left NOR right-wing.

    BUT, however, WikiLeaks has actually caused real-world damage that has affected more than our fake news outlets let us hear about (It’s the “why show Americans what they leaked about Syrian/Russian war crimes etc today if it’s not relevant/entertaining/etc?”, or maybe political rhetoric back when it was Trump-bashing or Hillary-bashing yet again, for the one hundredth time in a row, with the same sound bites…YEAH, duh, he’s a putz being a child and tweeting ridiculousness and repeatedly does so every time his chubby little nublets touch that phone! But guess what? NO ONE CARES NOW. He’s POTUS, we’re stuck, get past it..BUT, wait a min!!! Guess what? We can stop leaking. PEOPLE ARE ACTUALLY DYING LIKE THOSE HOLLYWOOD FILMS WE USED TO MAKE FUN OF FOR BEING SO UNAUTHENTIC WHEN IT CAME TO INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES ETC (Jason Bourne, Enemy of the State, etc etc….they are all out to get us and listen in/record all my conversations with my fellow colleagues or my pops! I DON’T FEEL INVADED. People who seriously, actually do need to buck up and deal with it….it happened with or without your consent before so…uh….how do you wanna play it? Whine on comment boards like this or let it be and enjoy your lives….OR maybe many of you, my fellow thinkers…logical and HOPEFULLY reasonable enough to listen to another American who just wants to end the BULLSH-T we keep having to hear about some NEW salacious scandal and move past it?I mean, that just all I wanna to know…is when and if the news we hear is even..uh…fine, even just 10% truth! Hell, I’m down to watching VICE News now to get even close to anything that resembles facts!! And so far, even trusty old CNN has backstabbed us (and I mean even before the recent stuff went down w/ them)…I have OCD and do entirely too much fact checking, even if it means I go on some weirdo radicalized white supremacy page or some Arabic jihadi looney website, even if just to see if what THIS a-hole or THAT a-hole says in his cave is the same thing WE HEAR over HERE in OUR news, but to me once our movies and our television get compromised and have that “agenda/rhetoric feeling”, I can’t take it even with a grain of salt and say “Wow! Sure glad Wiki Leaks is around to clear this all up for me. I mean, its go-pro cams and random people I don’t know whatsoever who claim to be truthful journalists showing what they want…nothing new right? So what’s the point in keeping ANY leak sites around? OR HOW ABOUT THIS…the day another attack happens because we listened/watched Wiki’s posted crap, and believe it as factual, then what? I know no one will be thanking any Scandinavian jerk-offs who feel “it’s always been their duty to air everyone ELSE’S dirty laundry”!!! …I’ve lost FAAAAAR TOO MUCH at this point to ever trust this type of information sources EVER AGAIN. —-HEY! THINK ABOUT THAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I mean it
    TRY LOSING YOUR MOM OR DAD TO BEING “TRANSPARENT”. To say how selfless THEY and YOU are for having such insight behind the looking glass.
    Guess what? I’m still the aforementioned independent voter, I just stopped thinking any luck would come our way anytime soon and from the looks of YOUR GUYS’ COMMENTS, some are with me and some want the NSA to just open right up to every wrongdoing it’s ever done!! IT’s DONE! Watergate, the Russian scandal with Trump, it’s not new.
    I LOVE BLACK SITES. I LOVE JSOC. I LOVE THE IDEA THAT YOU, NOR I, HAVE ANY RIGHTS BECAUSE ONCE YOU EVEN GET THE SLIGHTEST BIT JADED AFTER LOSING PEOPLE BECAUSE OF THE LEAK SITES (and I mean literally and directly) or once you see that people, who were already in lethal, fluid, dynamic and HIGHLY KINETIC AND RISKY OPERATIONAL ENVIRONMENTS get snatched because someone said “here’s a link to a suspected ISIS stronghold” and then our OWN ALLIES go in and kill everyone, and guess what? IF we’d let NSA/OGA (CIA) do their jobs for just a few minutes, maybe we would find out that those weren’t jihadis we killed….but actually contractors (like myself) using disguise to help refugees out of bombed out areas in bad neighborhoods. Not to topple regimes….come on. Read what I wrote below (if you’ve even read my rant this far lol) and you’ll see why I believe someone should have arrested Mr. Wiki Leaks, and/or shot him years ago…..sorry, I don’t wanna lie right now BECAUSE I don’t want you nor others reading this to get confused or angry once I appear just like the fakes that we see everyday.
    When my longtime friends were killed, here at home really, not in Syria or Irag, I wrote a letter and I’m not gonna repeat it but lets just say, below this, is the basic last gist of what my end point is—————->>

    December, 2011
    (I signed NDAs as a contractor and SME (Subject Matter Expert) on an older private firm’s asymmetric defense/asset protection entity called the RATTLR Group (Rapid Asymmetric Tactics Training and Lead Response Group), so I can’t just spill the ol’ beans…I can say I worked for TITANGROUP/L-3 Communications and that’s it. Period.
    Now here’s what I wrote about..

    I can’t believe we lost everyone at that Fwd CP! Why? WTF?
    *(My answer came weeks later, almost like because of the shame, and it was just “Sorry brother, f–kin’ Wiki Leaks. No one’s really safe. We used to bitch about Youtube? When that came out that may have seemed bad but…Wiki Leaks? This guy picks sides, his staff do too, same with the narrative that Anonymous try to feed us about THE GOV’s NARRATIVE (the irony in that is unreal, not to mention the obvious hypocrisy), whomever…all have a “side” and once they pick it, that’s that.
    I swore I would find some hacker type and find out why and what happened to my friends…Right? I mean,
    directly or indirectly, they’ve unknowingly allowed Somali children getting beheaded by AS (Al Shabaab)
    recently, like a few years back if my memory serves, and then was taken off ASAP once it was “leaked”…..But wait? Isn’t that transparency? The big speeches about “checks and balances” etc and taking accountability for the “black bag stuff”?? (luckily for him, it was just outside the red line and his usual defense entourage that speak for him like he’s NOT a threat to more than just the US is he “merely leaked the true positions of certain people at certain times”-type BS) and it cost those longtime friends their LIVES, after spending ALL of their own lives either working their tails off to try and better the world we live in, not shoot it up etc…not cause MORE damage, but instead, build cultural bridges, military or not….No one I knew would sign up to conduct “illegal drone strikes” etc etc, but as DoD personnel in the intelligence and/or US SOF community, they weren’t just put at risk by this “transparency”, they paid dearly and I still speak to their shattered families (I get calls ALMOST every other night from my friends’ widows who just ball and wish to leave this life because of what happened…Their husband was a contractor with just a pair of binos on him reporting Sudanese Janjaweed positions who had just raided, robbed, and raped nearly a half dozen villages in a week or less) who knew these men who just wanted to build up local townships in their AOs (areas of operation) and would be constantly given gifts of appreciation by those that lived locally and saw the direct result of their team’s work. They rarely needed to defend themselves, then suddenly, someone feels defiant….”those US imperialists…those spying a-holes think they are the world police! I went to MIT, I’ll show them!” (same talk as the Boston boys who blew those poor souls up, those Chechens that weren’t TOTALLY stupid, they had a plan that went south, and didn’t adapt, and thank god they got smoked!). Same with Snowden….People think that movie and his story is sooooo what we are as a country….WE HAVE NEVER BEEN THAT COUNTRY HENCE WHY WE ARE EVEN STILL HERE. Israel? Mossad? Do they sound like they have a lot of Snowdens? no….because they are ruthless in defending their own. Sometimes they get unspooled and go off reservation…but it’s better than crazed Syrians raping women in the dozens in British subways!!
    Our enemies use Wiki Leaks (Russia? China? They are disinformation experts as we’ve known for decades) and make full on fake documentaries etc about NATO or the “Jews, and their control over this or that etc” (I mean the Iranian IRGC, there), and how everyone is out to get them so they MUST flex or no one will fear them!
    Ok enough of my rant…I have tears welling up thinking about these neutral Scandinavian pansies who think they are SUCH heroes just because they were told so by other black hat hackers, leaders in the world, etc, etc. He’s a MASSIVE piece of sh–t and ABSOLUTELY SHOULD BE BANNED AND/OR PUT ON THE NON-STATE HOSTILE LIST.
