More than 2000 worldwide US-collaborators publicly exposed

September 3, 2011

US Protected "Strictly Protected" Sources Now Strictly Un-Protected

The US-led Northern Atlantic Terror Organization NATO still bombs the towns and people in Libya and sends their armed stooges to hunt black people and other alleged supporters of the Libyan government. Though there is not much, what the Libyan people can do against the terrorists’ bombs, today is the first day of international revenge.

Wikileaks just published an editorial taking pride of contributing to the US-led series of regime change operations in the arab world publicly known as the “Arab spring.” The terrorists just admitted that their predatory war of aggression against Libya has already cost the life of 50.000 people. Wikileaks did not find a single word of regret for all the black people murdered in Libya by US-led terrorists, but expressed only regret that a recent breach of Wikileaks secrecy publicly exposed US-collaborators.

But the most cynical sentence in Wikileaks’ statement is this one:

Every day that the corrupt leadership of a country or organization knows of a pending WikiLeaks disclosure is a day spent planning how to crush revolution and reform.

Cryptome Timeline of 19 July 2010 shows, that in July 2010 Wikileaks got the secret US-embassy cables well before July 2010 and the whole world knew it at that time. But instead of publishing the material instantly, Julian Assange decided to hold the cables back until the end of November 2010. Even then Wikileaks did not publish all cables, but only small portions, it let the corrupt propaganda outlets of NATO-countries set the spin for the cables and strictly censored all the names of the collaborators with the global US terror regime.

In the meantime the US-led global terror regime had enough time to plan on how to deal with the leak. In August 2010 Barack Obama signed his secret “Presidential Study Directive 11” in which he ordered all US agencies to prepare for a series of US-led regime changes in the arab world. The US plan was to stage a set of regime changes, switching one corrupt government of US puppets against another regime of US puppets, to mask these US-led regime change operations as spontanous revolutions and to deflect public attention and shame from the most corrupt governemnt in the world: itself.

It is the U.S. goverment which invaded Afghanistan and Iraq, causing the death of millions of innocent people there. It is the U.S. government which based devilishly uses predator drones to more or less randomly kill people in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia and Yemen. It is the U.S. government who sends special operation forces to perform “kill operations” and has the nerve of calling the rumors to identify targets for the killers “intelligence.” It is the U.S. government which enables the zionist apartheid regime to oppress and slaughter the indigenious population of Palestine. It is the U.S. government which supports all wars of aggresion of the zionist regime against it’s neighbor coutries and shieds the zionist regime from being persucuted for it’s world wide acts of murderous terror. It is the U.S. government which regularly performs regime change operations in the whole world to bring puppet governments to power, which do not serve the interests it’s people but it’s masters in the U.S. The U.S. government does all this for the sake that their banksters and corporations dominate and plunder the world.

The recent most criminal act of the U.S. government was murdering tens of thousands of Libyans and bombing Libya into ashes so that Libya will need it’s financial assets for reconstructing Libya instead of being able to invest it in other African nations to help Africa overcome the neocolonalism of World Bank, IMF and CFA-Franc. And Wikileaks claims to be proud to have assisted the USA with that murderous plunder, censoring it’s cable leak to help the U.S. terror regime to keep it’s collaborateurs secret, so that these U.S. collaborateurs can continue to act as U.S. agents of infuence. But #Fail.

It’s a mistake to trust the U.S. government. The U.S. terror regime is not trustworthy. Not at all. For nothing. Who ever talks to the U.S. govenment and it’s agent of terror in it’s world wide fortresses it calls embassies shall know that now and forever. The Wikileaks cables are out as undeletable Torrent in the internet – uncensored, all the cables with all names of US-collaborators exposed, plainly readable in clear letters for everyone.

As debate in the externally-based opposition press and Libya\’s small indigenous elite swirls around proposed wealth distribution, government re-structuring, possible adoption of a constitution and the ostensible withdrawal from politics by presumed heir-apparent Saif al-Islam al-Qadhafi, ordinary Libyans have largely eschewed politics and remained primarily focused on improving their daily standard of living. Khaled Nayyed (strictly protect), son of a prominent businessman and a successful importer of furniture in his own right, recently told P/E Chief that ordinary Libyans had been frustrated by years of sanctions-imposed privations and, more recently, by the disparity between increased availability of consumer goods and their stagnant salaries. Exhausted by years of largely failed political adventurism under the auspices of Muammar al-Qadhafi\’s al-Fateh Revolution and the Jamahiriya (state of the masses), most Libyans do not really care about politics or political reform. \”Do not give us free speech, parties, a constitution or elections – give us the ability to make and freely spend money\”, he said.
