disinformation campaign against the US, Pakistan and Libyan rebels

Wikileaks is like the Hydra of Greek mythology.  You cut off one head, another springs out, even more vicious than the one lying at your feet.  After having waited until the scandal died down, discrediting Wikileaks for its ties to Israeli intelligence and its pattern of using censorship and ‘seeded’ information to serve a pro-war agenda, 700 new documents are released today on “Gitmo.”

At first glance, this is the usual Wikileaks “chickenfeed.”  Yes, everyone knows America tortured prisoners, held innocent men for years and was utterly inept in handling intelligence.  Though tales of sexual humiliation and torture sell newspapers, the information itself was old news years ago.  However, as is usually the case, every Wikileak has a “Wiki-agenda” behind it and this one, as usual, is no exception.

The New York Times was heavily ‘burned” by Wikileaks, having been discredited by Assange’s reporting of censorship of leaked information that was turned over to that publication.  Their report on today’s leak is restrained and cautious.

I wear many hats but history, economics and political observance have always been a passion. I am a graduate of the University of Cincinnati College of Business with a degree in Information Systems and Digital Business with a minor in European History. I work for a small mom-and-pop IT consulting and software design company. We deal in servicing mostly government funded non-profit mental and behavioral health care agencies in the state of Ohio. In this I deal with Medicaid and Medicare funds and have a little insight on the boondoggles of government there. Thankfully the undemanding nature of my daily profession gives me ample time to read and stay aware of our current state of affairs which I find stranger than fiction in many instances. In addition to being in the IT field, I have also been self employed with a small contracting company so I might know a thing or two about the plight of small business that employs 71% of the American workforce. I however don't draw my knowledge from my day jobs, which I have had a few; I draw it from an intense obsession with facts and observation about the world in which I live. I do have formal education in things such as history, economics and finance particularly as it pertains to global issues, but I have come to find much of what I thought I knew from the formalities of a state university I had to unlearn through much time and independent research. I hope you enjoy what I bring you which is not often heard in the mainstream news outlets. I would like to think my own personal editorializing is not only edifying but thought provoking while not at all obnoxious. That last one may be a hard to achieve.
