WikiLeaks Inspires New York Times

If you thought that the arrest of Julian Assange could mark the end of WikiLeaks, think again.

Eyeing the international success (and mainstream hype) that boosted WikiLeaks' popularity, the New York Times Company (NYSE: NYT) is exploring the idea of developing a similar site of its own.

Bill Keller, Executive Editor at the New York Times, told Yahoo!'s (NASDAQ: YHOO) The Cutline that the new site could be similar to Al Jazeera‘s Transparency Unit, which encrypts file submissions from anonymous leakers.

Says Keller, “A small group from computer-assisted reporting and interactive news, with advice from the investigative unit and the legal department, has been discussing options for creating a kind of EZ Pass lane for leakers.”

This could prove to be quite the lucrative venture for the New York Times, which has been searching for new and additional forms of revenue. If this site comes to fruition, expect the News Corp. (NASDAQ: NWSA [FREE Stock Trend Analysis]) family of publications, TV networks and websites to follow suit.

Q: Will American authorities go after the New York Times - and other mainstream established journalism/journalists?

Thanks.

Excellent news!

And to your Q, my answer is:
It's a 50/50 chance: On one hand, the government would (normally) be terrified of actually doing what they have long been accusing fascist governments-and-never-a-free-democratic-government of doing, and actually stifling the free press (so long as NYT publicizes an attack on their Leaks system as an attack on free expression):
After all, this IS the NY times, and it would turn a lot of heads.

On the other hand, the US government isn't shy about stepping out of character and behave in the most tyrannical manner to hound Wikileaks- if they're willing to go that far, I doubt they'd worry about letting their facade fall a little further..

Bin Laden and Julian Assange, False flag and living plant (12/7/2010)

On 12/4, I wrote an article "Wiki-Leaks is another false flag" and posted it in APFN. One hour later, I was surprised to find the topic was replied by Julian Assange. I don't think it was Assange himself did it. He is on the run. Most likely it is the work of his handler - the Feds. The purpose is to link me to a would be "criminal". Assange is a living plant like Bin Laden. Here is the topic:

Bin Laden is a living plant.

In 1990, Soviet bloc collapsed. US intelligence turned its resource which used to deal with Soviet bloc to the new target - Mid-east countries which are rich in natural resource. Bin Laden, an asset of the CIA in Afghanistan war(against Russian), was revived in this new project as a false flag - Islamic extremist. He went to Sudan first in 1991.

The Sudanese offered to arrest Bin Laden and extradite him to Saudi Arabia .

http://www.infowars.com/saved%20pages/P ... _laden.htm


Saudi and US didn't take the offer with various excuse because Bin Laden is a living plant they deployed there.

In 1995, Bin Laden tried to set up a connection with Saddam but was refused.

Exhaustive review finds no link between Saddam, al Qaida

A September 2006 report by the Senate Intelligence Committee concluded that Saddam was "distrustful of al Qaida and viewed Islamic extremists as a threat to his regime, refusing all requests from al Qaida to provide material or operational support."

The Senate report, citing an FBI debriefing of a senior Iraqi spy, Faruq Hijazi , said that Saddam turned down a request for assistance by bin Laden which he made at a 1995 meeting in Sudan with an Iraqi operative.

http://news.yahoo.com/s/mcclatchy/20080 ... hy/2875005


Sudan may have felt the danger to accomodate Bin Laden. In May 1996, the Sudanese asked bin Laden to leave. He went to Afghan and stay there until now.

In August 1998, Sudan and Afghanistan were bombed by US missiles.

In 2001, after 911, Afghan, facing US invasion, made an offer but failed.

In Bin Laden's recent 20 years, the countries he went or tried to go, have something in common: They all have rich natural resources. Sudan and Iraq have oil. Afghan has rich mine. '

He didn't go to Yemen, Somali or Syria for his "revolution" because they are resource poor countries, not in US interest list. He didn't go to Saudi or Kuwait. Because they are US allies. He only went to Sudan, Afghan, or Iraq (intended to) because these three countries were not controlled by US at that time. As a living plant, he gave US the excuse to activate attack on these three countries. (Even Saddam realized that Bin Laden was a dangerous living plant and rejected him, Iraq at last was invaded with an unexisted WMD)

Julian Assange is another false flag and living plant. The target is not to control natural resource but to control the free speech kindom - the Internet. If you have noticed that in last month, the events come with the Wiki-leaks' third leaking. '

What will be their next step? Feds will upgrade the secret level of the leaking document to their puppet Assange. That will finally justify the legitimate of control of the Internet. When you saw that Wiki-Leaks is moving from this server to that, this web site to other, do you realize all these sites could be potential victims of the next wave of Internet censorship and seizure? Assange does same thing Bin Laden has done.

I always say that I am the most wanted of the Feds. Though I am always under the surveillance of the Feds, to set up an internet communication with a "criminal" could justify their action and turn an unreasonable search into a reasonable one. On 12/5, (next day that Assange post reply to my article) A working van of "Direct TV" parked at my front door. Technician installed something in my neighbor's house. (we share one roof and the wall) I think that they were installing detective instrument. My neighbor has had a dish satelite antena already.

So let me get this straight- the USA had been secretly using a puppet terrorist enemy to create nothing more than an illusion of legitimacy in the eyes of the public, but then decided to create a second puppet that leaks information that makes them look BAD in the eyes of the public it was setting up such elaborate plans to look GOOD in front of, and then acts completely out of character of the noble bastion of freedom but as everything every conspiracy theorist accused it of, thus creating a self-sabotage, in order for the weaker justification that won't actually work to censor the internet?

I know you're only here to troll, kid, but come on

Wiki-Leaks is another false flag

1. It doesn't leak any important secret of dirty insiders of US government.

2. It provokes Iran and other Arab countries. (News that Saudi king asking US to attack Iran)

3. This time the likely purpose is to justify war on Iran

WikiLeaks: Iran 'obtains North Korea missiles which can strike Europe'
Iran has obtained ballistic missiles from North Korea that could be used to strike Western Europe, the leaked files suggest.

On another note, I have found there is little point in trying to convey real-world politics to tinfoil hat-types, because they have become so lost in their almost superstitious delusions that nothing outside seems real. Mostly they spend more time watching sci-fi and discredited news sources (like Fox, even though they hate it they can't stop watching) and virtually none at all researching different countries and leaders from independent sources (that is, outside the same media sources) that even the most bogus concepts to a well-learned person make perfect sense to someone who spends most of their day on their couches before the TV.

For example, Katsung (assuming he's the real deal, and not just trolling the forums for attention) would feel that
1- illegal acts of war, torture, and conspiracies to invade or economically-collapse rival countries, or lobbying from other countries to do these things are 'not important' nor 'dirty' insiders of US government because he lacks the capacity to analyze information on its own, but instead blindly disregards any information that does not correspond to his belief that the US government is actually controlled by aliens trying to make the prophecies of the bible come true.

2- Assumption from simple TV land that because lazy TV audiences can be riled up into complaining about something (but not enough to leave their couches except to walk downtown to wave a sign on a street) that counties will fall for obvious ploys and be quick to attack others on nothing but knee-jerk impulse, instead of conspiracy to obtain hegemony or resources.

3- Because Iraqi warcrimes and leaked reports of Afghanistan being a failure, are going to justify Iran.

(quo bit)- an example of binary thinking, that believes:
1- either a source is pure and true, and the USA government can't possibly figure out how to feed false data into it
2- it is actually in the employ of the USA
As such, it is a matter of deciphering which leaks were deliberate false leads by the USA government (eg the 'terrorist targets that terrorists must not know about and must not be leaked by Wikileaks- opps" leak), against those from the US government offices that do no favors for the us government.
Similarly, a government official couldn't possibly create an account in a conspiracy forum and spread propaganda either!

A further example is the person's inability to confront logic- such as actually trying to make a case against the logical claims I made, or more importantly, explaining how THEIR sources (conspiracy papers) are correct, and not just outright speculations and fabrications.

Some news for you to think by your self:

Julian Assange wined and dined at US Embassy
Julian Assange was a guest at a US Embassy cocktail party less than a year ago.

To the United States, Julian Assange may now be Public Enemy Number One. Some American politicians have even called for his execution.

But less than a year ago, the founder of WikiLeaks was officially entertained at a US Embassy cocktail party by one of the very diplomats whose secrets he would soon spill to the world.

At the reception, held at the US ambassador's residence in Reykjavik, Iceland, Mr Assange chatted with Sam Watson, the embassy's deputy chief of mission.

Ha ha! What exactly do you think this means? The diplomatic circuit is notoriously loosey-goosey. I have also been "wined and dined" at a U.S. Embassy, and I'm the biggest nobody you can even imagine.

And it clearly shows he gatecrashed the party, and was possibly doing some research.

Unless you expect us to believe that the US asked Assange to show the helicopter massacring civilians and make them look bad as a trick to do something that couldn't possibly have been done by only leaking the snake venom factory report.

He once worked for Pentagon.

10/12/01 Quote, "Julian Assange Fired From IT Job At Pentagon

December 1, 2010 | ISSUE 46?48


ARLINGTON, VA¡ªWith officials describing his publication of sensitive U.S. State Department documents as "the last straw," Wikileaks founder Julian Assange was asked to resign from his position as the Pentagon's IT coordinator Monday. "We gave him his first warning after the whole Iraq and Afghanistan war diaries thing, and strike two was when he forwarded that video montage of Nicolas Cage yelling to the entire staff," Defense Department human resources director Curtis Shannon said. "But we just can't overlook this latest offense. Even if he's the only one who knows where the spare USB cables are." At press time, Assange had already been invited to interview for an IT position at the Central Intelligence Agency.
