Two Years of Cablegate as Bradley Manning Testifies for the First Time

Two Years of Cablegate as Bradley Manning Testifies for the First Time | Psycholitics & Psychonomics | Scoop.it
The information WikiLeaks has disclosed frustrates the controlled political discourse that is trumpeted by establishment media and Western governments to shape public perception.

 

'Thursday, November 29th, Bradley Manning testified for the first time since his arrest two and a half years ago in Baghdad. Today also marks the two-year anniversary of the first front pages around the world from Cablegate, an archive of 251,287 U.S. State Department diplomatic cables -- messages sent between the State Department and its embassies, consulates and diplomatic missions around the world. In collaboration with a network of more than 100 press outlets we revealed the full spectrum of techniques used by the United States to exert itself around the world. The young intelligence analyst Bradley Manning was detained as an alleged source.

 

WikiLeaks came under attack, with American politicians and right-wing pundits calling for all of us to be designated as terrorists, some even calling for my assassination and the kidnapping of our staff. Speaking on Meet The Press, Vice President Joe Biden referred to me as a "high-tech terrorist," while Senator Joe Lieberman demanded that we be prosecuted under the U.S. Espionage Act. The Department of Justice spokesperson Dean Boyd admitted as recently as July 2012 that the Department of Justice investigation into WikiLeaks is ongoing, and the Pentagon renewed its threats against us on September 28th, declaring our work an "ongoing crime." As a result, I have been granted political asylum and now live in the Ecuadorian embassy in London, surrounded by armed police while the FBI portion of the "whole of government" investigation against us, according to court testimony, had reached 42,135 pages as of December last year.'

WikiLeaks Tapes shows up corporate media, celebrates citizen journalists

 

'The WikiLeaks phenomenon has shown us that a new form of journalism is possible. It has also shown just how full of Western corporate propaganda the mainstream media have become.

 

The lengths that Vogan has gone to, as a completely unfunded solo operator, to make such an important contribution to the historical continuum is a case in point that independent citizen journalism is an indispensable tool for speaking the truth.'

The Mouse That Roared - a documentary film

The Mouse That Roared - a documentary film | Psycholitics & Psychonomics | Scoop.it
Birgitta Jónsdóttir—parliamentarian, activist, poet, Buddhist, single mom—fights to make Iceland the free speech capital of the digital world.

 

Please support

 

IMAGINE A NATION that offers a safe haven to whistleblowers risking their lives to stand up and speak the truth.

IMAGINE AN INTERNET that empowers “netizens,” rather than collecting data and spying on them.

Well, the tiny nation of Iceland is working together to do just that, and a unique woman, an Icelandic MP named Birgitta Jónsdóttir is leading the fight for digital democracy.

I'm Judith Ehrlich, and I was nominated for an Academy Award when I directed “The Most Dangerous Man in America, Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon Papers.” This film expands on the issues of my previous film, in the context of the 21st century.

TRANSPARENCY!
