UPDATE: A friend suggested that perhaps Wikileaks is being fed by Obama as an end-run around the financial-military-industrial complex, especially since the heavy rumors that Bank of America is the next target. In a strange way, I resonate to this. Perhaps I'm naturally cynical and suspicious, but I've been really impressed by Obama's raw intelligence. I'm one of those people talking about the need for "11-dimensional chess" to solve the horrible Medusan tangle left by eight years of W and eight years of Senor Triangulus. (Remember Hillary's Health Horror?) It's a possibility, tripping up the oligarchy by using secrecy and manipulation against them. Such a petard!
Just out of curiosity, and being a contrarian, I googled wikileaks.gov.
Apparently it hasn't occurred to anyone that the secrecy behind wikileaks would be exactly what is needed for a false flag operation, and Julian Assange a paid actor.
Even if it started as an honest attempt to show up secrecy, so many former Wikileaks workers have jumped ship that a completely new direction might have been taken.
It's also possible, and looking probable that the low level Army private was used as a scapegoat. Perhaps this is all a battle for turf among espionage agencies in the US government. Nothing significant has actually been released.
