The Wiki Hoax

by Gordon Duff

True colors, we are seeing them now. Those still trying to peddle the Wikileaks myth, the boyish grin concealing the powerful conspiracy, espionage and treason at the highest levels of American society, these are the real enemies of the information age.

There are two opinions of Wikileaks. The worlds intelligence services all, every single one, believes Wikileaks is simply an intelligence agency playing games. They say this to each other, Vladimir Putin and Zbigniew Brzezinski have announced it to the world and others are following suit.

Nobody, at least nobody typically "answerable" will say the word "Israel" but it is what they mean when they say "intelligence agency." They mean Israel. Every Wikileak does something to help Israel in a different way at a different time. If Israel has a problem, a Wikileak is there., part of the solution. This time, Secretary Clinton was in the way and Wikileaks showed up to gut the State Department and give Israel the usual "buff and polish" job they usually do.

There is another group, not a group that actually believes Wikileaks is real, few but the "Joe Six-Pack" crowd buys that, but a group that loves Wikileaks like an addict loves a fix. The press loves Wikileaks. I even love Wikileaks. Wikileaks is pushing readership through the roof, not just America but worldwide. Wikileaks is a news marketing phenomenon like any disaster. There is a reason the media are compared to vultures and hyenas.

Killing Wikileaks as the hoax it is, and not a harmless hoax, not by a long shot, is like killing the golden goose. Wikileaks sells news, pulls up website traffic to unimaginable levels, even crashes servers from overload. There isn't just one story, teaching the world how bad America is, there is also the daytime TV drama, the soap opera of Julian Assange.

I wonder when the public will pick up on the endless stream of carefully posed, carefully staged photos. Just imagine meeting Assange, hiding from Interpol, running for his life, the CIA hunting him down, angry "date rape' victims lurking the streets of London and Amsterdam. He always has time for the media, never misses an interview.

"Julian, look to the side, leer a bit…look threatening. OK, another one, this time …softer…something the gay community will like. OK, that was great."

Wikileaks would be funny if it weren't getting people killed, something almost everyone agrees on. Those with a powerful desire to "buy in," the disaffected, the overt and "closet" America haters and, most of all, the bored. Wikileaks is perfect for people with nothing to do, nothing to talk about and absolutely no knowledge about foreign policy or defense. There is something for everyone in Wikileaks, rape, gay sex, car chases, everything but truth.
