The Scarlet Pimpernel of Cyberspace | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


The Scarlet Pimpernel of Cyberspace

There’s also something about WikiLeaks that smells nasty to me. I sense the leaks have been heavily censored, or cherry-picked before the public saw them. Much seems to be missing. But what these missing pieces are remains an unknown.

For example, the New York Times, one of the recipients of the entire leak package of thousands of cables, appeared to use them selectively to push its pro-war position in Afghanistan and press for war against Iran. The "revelations" brought cheers from the war party.

But where was information about involvement of Afghanistan’s Tajik-Uzbek Northern Alliance, the key US ally there, in running the drug trade? Or the influential Afghan Communist Party?

Call them the dogs that didn’t bark.
