Liberal Icon Daniel Ellsberg fears Wikileaks founder Julian Assange may be a CIA Target

EDITOR’S NOTE: Daniel Ellsberg remains one of the enduring American examples of integrity who single handedly challenged Richard Nixon and the military industrial complex by leaking the notorious “Pentagon Papers” into the public domain. Americans in particlular should take note of Ellsberg’s commentary on the current state of affairs in the United States, as the nation- yet again,  have been lied into a series of hopeless wars for profit. Blind supporters of President Barrack Obama should pay close attention to Ellsberg’s conclusions, less they be consigned to the exact same fate suffered by previously blind supporters of George W. Bush. Washington’s moves to silence all whistle blowers both inside and outside the US run contrary to the core fundamentals on which the US and its great Constitutional government were once founded. In another recent interview with the German journal Spiegel Online, Ellsberg explains, “I voted for him and I will probably vote for him again, as opposed to the Republicans. But I believe his administration in some key aspects is nothing other than the third term of the Bush administration.” The question remains: when will Americans and Obama apologists wake up and smell the coffee?

Daniel Ellsberg, who gained fame when he leaked the Pentagon Papers in 1971 in hopes of ending the Vietnam War, told MSNBC’s Dylan Ratigan on Friday that he not only sees a parallel between himself and the person who recently leaked a video of an assault by US forces on Iraqi civilians but also fears for the safety of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, who published the video.

Army specialist Bradley Manning was recently arrested in the case, and according to reporter Philip Shenon, the Pentagon is “desperately” seeking Wikileaks founder Julian Assange in hopes of preventing further damaging revelations.

    Pakistan is aiding the Taliban? We needed leaked documents to tell us what we’ve known for 8 years?

  2. Wallace Reynoldson Says:

    Perhaps that person thought they owed their loyalty to the democracy of the US- not its government or Pentagon…

    Bradley Manning is a national hero. Daniel Ellsburg was a much older man when he stole the Pentagon Papers; the Berrigan brothers were older, and priests. Mr. Manning is a very brave and good man, and deserves the support of all of us. His heroism is what we shoild all be capable of. We must support him in every way, and follow his noble example. I say this as a former captain in the United States Marine Corps.
