WikiLeaks - do you care?

If you are serious about learning about this new phenomenon on the web and in the news, you might take a look at this Swedish produced documentary on the cyber entity. It could form your opinion, or change it.
If you are interested in the future of the internet, you should take the time to view it. If you are interested in demystifying Julian Assange, you should view it. If you are interested in free communication, you must watch it.
If you are here because you simply believe conspiracy theories, you should leave, this video is no theory.

Pay particular attention to the comment from a soldier in the helicopter gunship cockpit after the destruction of the minivan. Start at 25:30. If you are not too sick by then, go back and watch the whole video, then ask yourself why this isn't headline news on every TV station in the world? - WikiRebels: The Full Documentary About WikiLeaks Video

Common things

There are certain things about the current WikiLeaks furor that bring back the past. The difference is that today we have instant communication and knowledge of actual goings on. Or the potential of.
Back in the days of the Viet Nam war. We heard only what news was meant for North America via newspaper and TV reports and what the precarious pipeline of independent news gatherers were able to report. Which was published in underground tabloid newspapers. It was the beginning of the era where the government controls the news to the people back home.

This was furthered in the news during the first Gulf War when Peter Arnett reported direct from Baghdad and was eventually disgraced and fired for his truths.

There are many stories from Viet Nam vets on the conduct of that war. Instances of distortion of the truth that grew in volume as Lyndon Johnson took over direct management of the conflict in Indo-China.

A Sergeant in the Army returns to his commander after a foray into the jungle. "What happened with your squad, today, soldier?" His superior asks.
"We lost two men Sir, and killed three Viet Cong."
The Captain retorts in a gruff voice, "No, soldier, tell me again what happened."
Causing the young Sergeant to stammer a second reply, "Sir, We lost two soldiers in a firefight. We know we killed two enemy in the attack and think we got two more."

The Captain sighs. Stands up behind his desk, intimidating the young soldier, and says, "No no no. You must have it wrong. You killed ten Cong commies and lost none?"
"Um, Sir?"
"You hard of hearing Sergeant? You heard what I said. Now what exactly did you say?"
The Sergeant, swallows visibly, straightens to attention and takes a stab at another answer. "Sir! We killed ten Viet Cong and came back with no casualties. Sir!"
"Thank you, Sergeant. Dismissed."

The Captain then reports this accounting to his own superior, who says, "Captain, that is exactly NOT what happened today. Exactly what happened is that a squad of our troops attacked the enemy in spite of their overwhelming numbers, but with our superior training, skill and weaponry they killed 200 Viet Cong and lost none of our brave soldiers."

The report goes to the another officer higher up the chain. Who nods his head and then says, "These reports go right to General Westmoreland now who sends them directly to President Johnson."
And he then proceeds to write a memo to the General - "Our platoon had no losses today but over 500 Viet Cong were killed in a fierce firefight near Hanoi. We expect to liberate the city soon."

And an independent newspaper reporter, sitting in a cafe in Saigon, sipping French coffee, who read this latest report in an American newspaper and commented to a friend. "So far, with my math, we have killed over twice the population of North Vietnam? Doesn't anyone get it?"
The reporter disappeared the next day. Saigon was a dangerous place.

And so began the fear of truth in the modern era of media reporting. And so began the intent to kill the messenger. The web today may be the last bastion of truth to the people.
Is WikiLeaks the messenger?

Secret goings on?

You read it here first.
Several months ago, the Chinese set the other world military powers agog with a demonstration of their capabilities. They shot down a satellite in space!
It was one of their own but they showed they could do it and sent a chill throughout the industrial military complexes of many nations, most of all, the US. If space is to become a factor in world warfare, then space ship satellites cruising miles overhead need to be impervious from attack from the ground.

So then, a few weeks ago, a news helicopter filmed a rocket rising from somewhere west of Los Angeles. No one knew what it was. See the article and video below Chemtrails/Contrails/Missiles for an explanation. The Pentagon denies knowing what that missile was. Trying to pass it off as a contrail from a commercial airliner. Well we all know that the Pentagon never tells the truth. (not that they are obligated to tell us the truth)

So then, just the other day, the US announces that it's space craft/flyer, the X37B Ordital Test Vehicle has just landed after a successful secret mission into space. This 'plane' was built by Boeing's Phantom Works Division for NASA originally until the US Airforce Rapid Capabilities Office took it over. It was secretly launched in April of this year on a seven month test mission.

Now, considering what the implications are that something like this could be shot down from the ground by an enemy force, wouldn't you think a test would be in order while this vehicle was orbiting?
Just what was it doing up there? Technologies to be tested included advanced guidance, navigation and control, thermal protection systems, avionics, high temperature structures and seals, conformal reusable insulation, and lightweight electromechanical flight systems. Or so we are told.
In addition, the X-37B Orbital Test Vehicle will demonstrate autonomous orbital flight; upon command from the ground, the OTV autonomously re-enters the atmosphere, descends and lands horizontally on a runway. So wouldn't the US Air Force need to KNOW their systems worked by performing an ultimate test? Shooting one of their own most advanced missiles at their project, (with fail safe capabilities of course, perhaps programmed to disintegrate or just go off into space silently forever) would be something they would need to know. So making sure they could detect, and thwart any attempt from Earthlings to interfere with the conquest of humanity.

So could that missile launch in California recently have been a test to confirm their secret X37B vehicle would be safe up there? Unable to be shot down? Watching us below? Shadowing us with impudence? Even arrogance. Threatening us all into submission and slavery? Zapping us by laser with no fear of retaliation.

Sure the thing looks like a huge slug. But we never thought Jabba the Hutt was dangerous either, and look at the trouble he caused Princess Leia and Luke.
