Sex, Lies, Iran, Israel and WikiLeaks

WikiLeaks has given the mainstream media yet another opportunity to vilify Iran.  A typical headline, from the New York Times was:  “Around the world distress over Iran.”  And, ironically, it is true, but not in the way the headline writer meant.

Around the world there is distress over Iran, distress at the way it is being cast in the role of the Evil Doer, when all but the most ignorant observers realise that it is nuclear-armed Apartheid Israel that is the real threat to world peace, not Iran.

    How come Wikileaks doesn’t mention Henry Kissinger telling his boss Richard Nixon: “If they put Jews into gas chambers in the Soviet Union, it is not an American concern”?

    (I posted this on another Wikileaks-Iran related thread, but it applies here, as well. It’s an informative article about wikileaks’ media connections and how they are using the wikileaks provided material to further israeloamerican criminal policies.)

    He doesn’t go into the possible israeli connection, but does provide a wealth of info on the corporate media connections with wikileaks and how the media is using wikileaks to further the israeloamerican propaganda against Iran and other Muslim countries.

    Military staffer knew about attacks: report

    Published: 12 Dec 10 20:06 CET


    “A Swedish Armed Forces (Försvarsmakten) employee warned an acquaintance to stay clear of an area in central Stockholm on Saturday where, several hours later, two explosions went off in what is being called a terrorist attack.

    “If you can, avoid Drottninggatan today. A lot can happen there…just so you know,” the message said, according to the TT news agency.

    Armed Forces spokesperson Jonas Svensson told TT on Sunday he was unaware of the message.

    “I haven’t heard about this at all. Now I’m going to check out the information,” he told TT when confronted with the news.

    Later the Swedish military said it was now “preparing how the issue will be dealt with”. [Like in “oops”, busted, HTF can we spin and defuse this?” – h]

    Rather reminiscent of those emails warning several Jewish wtc workers to stay home on 11 Sep., 2001, no?

    NYT Reporter Defends Publishing WikiLeaks Cables

    Global Research Editor’s Note

    The following transcript points to the involvement of the corporate media including the New York Times in the Wikileaks project.

    How do we interpret this relationship?

    The corporate media is the source of disinformation and at the same time it is supporting “transparency” and truth in media.

    David E. Sanger, Washington Correspondent of the New York Times, worked closely with Wikileaks. He was involved in the distribution, editing and dissemination of the leaked documents.

    Sanger is member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and the Aspen Strategy Group together with Madeleine K. Albright, Richard Hass, R Talbott, Robert.B. Zoellick (president of the World Bank), and Philip Zelikow (formerly executive director of the 9/11 Commission)

    We have highlighted a number of important statements in the first part of this interview, which confirm that the NYT has not only been involved in the selection and redacting of the Wikileaks documents, it has they also undertaken these activities in consultation with the US government.

    Unquestionably the released documents constitute an important data bank in their own right.

    The question is who controls and oversees the selection, distribution and editing of the released documents to the broader public.

    What interests are being served?

    “We should look at the countries that are satisfied by the leak, and Israel is very satisfied,” Huseyin Celik, the deputy chairman of Turkey’s ruling party AKP.
