Ashkenazi: Intelligence looking into leaks - Israel News, Ynetnews

Addressing the leak of classified documents by the WikiLeaks website, the army chief said that the extent of the matter was still unclear but that the Military Intelligence unit was monitoring the matter, which "could affect the dialogue with some people in the future." This teaches us about a new world with many risks, he added.

OpEdNews - Article: US Govt Spy Program: Main Core, PROMIS and the Shadow Government: Part I

Main Core has received attention in two 2008 articles, one a piece by investigative journalist Christopher Ketcham entitled The Last Roundup (which also looks at Continuity of Government programs but more on that in a little while) and Tim Shorrock entitled Exposing Bush’s Historic Abuse of Power. Both articles tie Main Core to the now legendary PROMIS software, an extremely advanced program designed to aid federal prosecutors in case management tracking. PROMIS could pull and put together a wide range of data from disparate sources into a single record.


"U.S. journalist Mike Ruppert, a former Los Angeles police officer who now runs a Web site that seeks to expose CIA covert operations, said he met with RCMP investigator McDade on Aug. 3 in L.A. Ruppert said the RCMP officer was anxious to see documents he received three years ago from a shadowy Green Beret named Bill Tyre [sic] detailing the sale of rigged Promis software to Canada." - The Toronto Star, September 4, 2000.

Beware of the extremists

By in occupied Palestine A few weeks ago, a supposedly religious activist, probably from one of the Gulf States, suggested to me that Muslims shouldn’t confine our attacks to Zionists; we ought, he said, to attack Jews as Jews, on the grounds that the vast majority of Jews support Israel.

Net neutrality, the FCC, Wikileaks and the future of internet freedom

Remember, I am not arguing here for or against the principle of net neutrality itself, but rather warning about the FCC's imposition of false authority over the internet in the first place. The idea of net neutrality has merits, but granting the FCC the power to control the internet is a disastrously bad idea that will only end in censorship and "information tyranny" -- especially now that governments around the world are witnessing the "dangers" of information freedom via the Wikileaks fiasco.

FDN héberge un miroir de WikiLeaks

Tout cela, savoir si ce que fait WikiLeaks est bien ou mal, ce n'est pas l'affaire de FDN. Chacun d'entre nous a probablement une opinion qui lui est propre, un avis personnel sur le gris moyen, quelque part entre le blanc éclatant du héros moderne ou le noir de charbon de l'ennemi public numéro 1. Mais ce n'est pas l'affaire de FDN. Nous, nous faisons du réseau, simplement du réseau, rien que du réseau.

Wiki-Leaks and Plausible Lies - Where Have All The Critical Thinkers Gone? -- Axis of Evil --

And let's not forget previous Wiki-leaks 'dumps' of data, which included nuggets of US and Israeli government nonsense like Iraq really did have WMDs! And there you were thinking that the WMD business was a total lie! Well, guess again, thanks to some of the Wiki-leaks documents, we now know that the US was totally justified in invading Iraq and killing 1.5 million innocent civilians. And if that isn't enough for ya, then just remember...9/11!

Je suis Espagnol !!

Beaucoup attendaient ce moment, comme la reconnaissance tardive d'une histoire douloureuse dont les plaies tardent à se refermer. Soixante-dix ans après la Retirada qui vit déferler de notre côté des Pyrénées, un demi-million de réfugiés, les descendants d'exilés peuvent désormais acquérir à leur tour la nationalité de leur pays d'origine. L'Espagne tente ainsi de parachever sa réconciliation historique en honorant la mémoire des opposants à Franco. Manque plus qu'un parasol et je vais m'installer sur la Costa Brava auprès de mes cousins :-)
