There’s not much point in staging a coup if you don’t influence who is placed in power in the aftermath. Of course in order for a puppet government to be effective, they can’t be perceived as such. You wouldn’t want the natives to get restless would you?

The evidence that the U.S. was behind the toppling of the Ukrainian government early this year is so overwhelming at this point that the subject really isn’t up for debate, however initially it was unclear how the election of Petro Poroshenko fit in. The ecstatic response by Washington when he was declared the winner, and their unbending support in spite of his ongoing military assault against civilians in the east, made it clear that he was the chosen one, but the paper trail wasn’t immediately obvious.

As it turns out, the evidence that Poroshenko is in the pocket of the U.S…

Canada’s Shame

Children missing and victimized on a large scale.

Canada Lost Over 600 Missing or Murdered Aboriginal Men

Story – Haringey council is notorious for its high-profile failures in child protection. Victoria Climbié and Baby P, who were tortured to death after social workers, managers, officials and doctors ignored numerous warning signs, will never be forgotten by the public, nor the council forgiven. In this latest case, which highlights different but equally alarming failings, the Labour authority turned on an innocent couple after receiving a single anonymous letter claiming the mother had “shouted” at and “slapped” her six-year-old.”

Julian Assange Interview on ABC Sunday Show

30 06 2013

Interview with George Stephanopoulos.

GEM:

STEPHANOPOULOS: Let me bring this back to Julian Assange. Back in 2010, an email that was revealed from you by Bart Gellman in “Time” magazine, said that you hoped the revelations from Wikileaks would bring about, quote, “the total annihilation of the current U.S. regime.” Is that still your goal, and what did you mean by that?

ASSANGE: I did not say that and there is no such email. That is simply false.

STEPHANOPOULOS: It’s quoted in “Time” magazine in December 2010.

ASSANGE: Yes. Well, I mean, “Time” magazine. But this is — it’s very interesting that you raised such a thing like that. We are in a situation where we have these extraordinary revelations that are causing great embarrassment to a new national security state that is arising in the U.S. It’s not just the U.S. Similar national security states are rising in other countries, but it is trying to evade democratic will. It’s treating Congress like a bunch of fools. And we saw Clapper up there lying, bald-face lying to Congress. We have secret interpretations of the law. What does the law mean if there are secret interpretations in secret courts?

Alex Gibney’s new film, “We Steal Secrets,” is about WikiLeaks and its founder, Julian Assange. It dutifully peddles the state’s contention that WikiLeaks is not a legitimate publisher and that Bradley Manning, who allegedly passed half a million classified Pentagon and State Department documents to WikiLeaks, is not a legitimate whistle-blower. It interprets acts of conscience and heroism by Assange and Manning as misguided or criminal. It holds up the powerful—who are responsible for the plethora of war crimes Manning and Assange exposed—as, by comparison, trustworthy and reasonable. Manning is portrayed as a pitiful, naive and sexually confused young man.

Bad Day for WikiLeaks Prosecutors

11 04 2013

Brisbane Times - US must prove Manning helped al-Qaeda

The US government must prove that Bradley Manning knowingly helped al-Qaeda by leaking secret documents to WikiLeaks in order to convict him of “aiding the enemy”, a judge has ruled.

The ruling by Judge Denise Lind at a preliminary hearing raises the bar for convicting Manning – who has admitted leaking the documents but denied aiding the enemy – of the most serious charge he faces.

Judge Lind said the prosecution in the military tribunal must show evidence Manning had “reason to believe such information could be used to the injury of the US”, by an armed group like al-Qaeda or another nation. . . .  (more)
