Listen to a reading of this article (reading by Tim Foley): It's funny how former Israeli PM Ehud Barak just deleted a tweet admitting that Israel has nuclear weapons at the same time The Washington Post reports that US allies have a "don't talk about Nord Stream" policy because of the answers it would turn up. There are so many open secrets that everyone knows but isn't allowed to acknowledge publicly.
You are being very generous in just saying that the alleged Russian hack remains unproven. It has been disproved, as well as any negative can be disproven. Why does no one in the US know this? Because no one aside from the Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity, who self published their extensive research and finding with Consortium News will touch it. Besides, IIRC, Aaron Mate’ and a couple of others. You are 100% correct. And, you said it with clarity. What separates Julian from a great journalist like Sy Hersh? The invention of the new way of communicating and protecting sources you spoke of, and that Julian is the most fearless publisher in history, while Sy is a great reporter. It’s a close call, but I agree. Would that they had each other to count on.
When I see Assange, I'm always reminded of Henry Thoreau's words:
"UNDER A GOVERNMENT WHICH IMPRISONS UNJUSTLY, THE TRUE PLACE FOR A JUST MAN IS ALSO A PRISON."
Brilliant analysis and commentary as usual Caitlin. Clearly your perspective and mine are very much in sync. I'm always grateful for your insights and try to get my comments published on Consortium News where I follow you the most. Best wishes from Las Vegas NV USA & Halifax NS Canada
"Fucking idiot." - these are not idiots, Caitlin. They're worse - they're operatives. The idiots are those who listen to and believe them.
And those are many - that's why these types are flourishing. And that's what's truly amazing and revealing about this "evolved" species called humans.
My greatest disappointment with Assange was his failure to cover his ass with releases of information that would've truly rocked the global empire. The WikiLeaks trove that came out was mostly picked over rubbish. How has the regime been able to squash the most damning info? How has that not made it to the light of day? Wasn't it supposed to be his Get-out-of-jail-free card? His insurance to stay alive? He knew they wanted him eliminated. Surely he was smarter than that, than to get caught with nothing to bargain with? To say the hell with it and flood the zone with his most incriminating evidence?
So many good truths contained within this piece. It's an explosion of clear-thinking and anti-propaganda! (We need more of it, much, much more.)
This is perhaps the saddest line (next to how gullible the China-haters are and how the world's greatest journalist is still in prison): "The media could have seized on the corruption exposed in the WikiLeaks documents to spark an invigorated charge to investigate US government malfeasance. Instead it was used to hide, forgive, and facilitate US government malfeasance."
Now more than ever, we need to shut down the Western/pro-war mainstream media machine completely. COMPLETELY. It's time to start a vocal boycott of the MSM. Who's with me? #BoycottMSM
Keep fighting the good fight!
As you can count on Consortium News to publish your materiel, so as to reach a wider audience. So, many kudos and great respect to the great Joe Lauria as well, who has done more reportage in the US on the Assange persecution than everyone else put together.
The empire of lies is the undisputed masters of propaganda. In this and this alone is the United States exceptional. It has successfully gaslighted, brainwashed generations of people ever since WWII. You and I are living in historic times as we personally witness the last dying days of a hegemony.
Xi Jinping said it correctly this is the most significant event in the past 100 years; referring to the Western countries collapse and the birth of a new world structure.
The primary effect of the Internet is clearing-cutting the spirit
Followed by mono-cropping the mind.
(repeat after me, repeat after me, repeat me after . . . . . . . . . .
I'm so glad to hear the truth about Assange spoken so clearly. It puts the injustice in true perspective.
He changed the course of history at least twice, and I know of no journalist who has paid a heavier price.
What we are prepared to believe without evidence has a lot to do with infantile dependency on delusions of superiority and privilege. It isn't sign of strength.
Julian Assange, must be Free!, Julian Assange can be Free! and we must fight in this historic battle to
Win! or our children will be next!
We can not leave a world to our children where governments can violate the rule of law with impunity
and where telling the truth has become a crime.
I hope the next president pardons Assange and Snowden since both their stories were truthful in retrospect. A strange is only “other” when you refuse to see them as loving and needing just like you. Wars can be circumvented when others are respected as equal to oneself. Toppling other governments should be off limits as well as orchestrating who leads and doesn’t lead. This is not democracy but tyrant tactics. Hands off america. We have too much to straighten out here.
Thank you !!

Seeing now everything about US “Empire of Lies”, including thanks to courageous Elon Musk and Twitter Files, it is beyond doubt that 2020 and 2022 elections were stolen..
US State press is paid to lie and must lick asses of their advertisers/controllers -- US arms industry and US fascist bipartisan War party.
