The his blog post, “Obama officials caught deceiving about Wikileaks”, Glenn Greenwald sheds some lights on a few things relating to Wikieaks. The links in this article are courtesy of Greenwald.
Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Adm. Mike Mullen’s claims of Wikileaks having “blood on its hands” are false with Pentagon officials admitting that there is no proof that Wikileaks has actually caused a single death. That is, “We have yet to see any harm come to anyone in Afghanistan that we can directly tie to exposure in the WikiLeaks documents,”
Also, presidential and congressional officials have both knowingly lied about Wikileaks, exaggerating the threat it has posed to US interests and overstating the secrets it has released in order to more easily persecute Assange and the website.
The US government has lied, and people have believed it, again.
