    Viktor Bout: Weapons Smuggler May Be the Tip of the Iceberg

    Documents from WikiLeaks published in International Business Times disclosed that American officials warned Washington that the Russian intelligence services are working closely with organized crime.

    Wikileaks and Latin America: Don’t Make U.S. Diplomats Liars

    Diplomats have often been disparaged as honest men sent abroad to lie for the good of their countries.

    Morning Bell: Just Another WikiLeak On An Already Sinking Ship

    There is nothing positive that can be said about the release of more than a quarter-million confidential American diplomatic cables by the rogue hacker organization WikiLeaks.

    WikiLeaks’ Inconvenient Truth about Iraqi Chemical Weapons

    Buried in the WikiLeaks avalanche of documents related to the war in Iraq are various reports about the discovery of chemical weapons caches inside Iraq—reports which contradict the revisionist narrative about the genesis of the war. Scattered throughout the roughly 392,000 documents illegally published by WikiLeaks are accounts of U.S., … More

    Wikisteria: Don’t Take Anti-War Bait

    The aim of releasing thousands of classified documents on the Afghanistan war on the WikiLeaks Web site was apparently to undermine American public support for the war. The founder of WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, said he wanted the world to see the “true nature of the war” and equated the WikiLeaks … More

    The WikiLeaks Assault on the Rule of Law and National Security

    The publication of over 91,000 classified U.S. military documents on Afghanistan by WikiLeaks has, as White House national security adviser Jim Jones said, “put the lives of Americans and our partners at risk.” The documents include raw intelligence reports whose disclosure could not only endanger lives, but risk revealing the … More
