WHEN TRUTH BECOMES DANGEROUS
(TO INVESTIGATIVE JOURNALISTS and WHISTLEBLOWERS)
MEMO TO THE PUBLIC: WIKILEAKS DOES NOT HACK
WIKILEAKS DOES NOT CONSPIRE WITH RUSSIA TO HACK WEBSITES.
WikiLeaks is an award-winning multi-national media organization and associated library. It was founded by its publisher Julian Assange in 2006. WikiLeaks exposes corruption at the highest levels of government and very powerful government agencies which in turn are extremely annoyed by having a spotlight shown on them. US intel agencies do not care for Assange because he is an investigative journalist whose organization brings to light things that very powerful people don't want to have exposed. As a result there has been a concentrated and HIGHLY aggressive effort by the government to discredit WikiLeaks and its founder.
It's important to note that despite carefully directed mainstream media reporting to the contrary, WikiLeaks did NOT hack the DNC website. Craig Murray, highly intelligent, extremely well respected, with a long career in the diplomatic corps, is the former British ambassador to Uzbekistan and associate of Julian Assange. He flew to Washington, D.C. to personally accept the DNC emails. In an interview with the Daily Mail in August of 2016, Murray stated: The CIA "are absolutely making it up" in their report claiming a Russian had provided WikiLeaks with thousands of private emails from the Democratic National Committee. "I know who leaked them," Murray said. "I've met the person who leaked them, and they are certainly not Russian and it's an insider. It's a leak, not a hack; the two are different things" According to Murray, the release of Democratic National Committee emails was the deed of a disgruntled Democrat employee
"The leakers' motivation was 'disgust at the corruption of the Clinton Foundation and the 'tilting of the primary election playing field against Bernie Sanders," Murray said. "Neither of [the leaks] came from the Russians,'"said Murray. "The source had legal access to the information. The documents came from inside leaks, not hacks. 'Regardless of whether the Russians hacked into the DNC, the documents Wikileaks published did not come from that," Murray stated emphatically. 'I don't understand why the CIA would say the information came from Russian hackers when they must know that isn't true,' he said. 'Regardless of whether the Russians hacked into the DNC, the documents Wikileaks published did not come from that.'
"Hillary Clinton has stated multiple times, falsely, that 17 US intelligence agencies had assessed that Russia was the source of our publications. That's false - we can say that the Russian government is not the source [of the information WikiLeaks published]."
WikiLeaks specializes in the analysis and publication of large datasets of censored or otherwise restricted official materials involving war, spying and corruption. It has so far published more than 10 million documents and associated analyses.
Although no organization can hope to have a perfect record forever, thus far WikiLeaks has a perfect in document authentication and resistance to all censorship attempts.
