Cindy Sheehan on Wikileaks diplomatic cables

An excerpt of an article by Cindy Sheehan and the Peace Movement:

While only a tiny fraction of the U.S. diplomatic cables scheduled for publication by Wikileaks have thus far been made available, some conclusions can already be drawn.

Much of the pressure for war appears to come from within the United States, whose representatives treat the entire world as a hostile enemy to be spied on, lied to, and exploited. The secrecy that permits this behavior must be broken if the United States’ approach to the world is to change.

Our government is seen as controlling a global military and espionage empire that impacts every region of the globe and deceives its own population. Secrecy, spying, and hostility have infected our entire government, turning the diplomatic corps into an arm of the CIA and the military. Secret war planning, secret wars, and lies about wars have become routine.

We have long known that the war on terrorism was increasing, rather than diminishing, terrorism. These leaks show Saudi Arabia to be the greatest sponsor of terrorism, and show that nation’s dictator, King Abdullah, to be very close to our own government in its treatment of prisoners.

Our Department of Justice has granted immunity for aggressive war, kidnapping, torture, assassination, and warrantless spying, while pursuing the criminal prosecution of Bradley Manning for allegedly leaking materials to Wikileaks. Were our government to indict Julian Assange or support the extradition or rendition of Assange, while maintaining that his work and not the Pentagon’s has endangered us, our nation’s moral standing would reach a new low.

  1. WHERE THE HELL WAS THIS LEFTY MENTALITY ON THE DATE OF 911 OR ON PEARL HARBOR? DURING THOSE FANTASTIC YEARS OF THE CLINTON YEARS WE MADE A PILE OF MONEY AND BOUGHT A LOT OF FRIENDS, BUT WHERE WERE THEY WHEN THE DEAL WENT DOWN IN 2003? AND WHY DID CLINTON DISMISS OUR MILITARY COMMISSIONS AND LAY ABOUT HALFOF THEM OFF? I GUESS WE CAN LAY DOWN OUR WEAPONS AND JUST SURRENDER TO THESE TERRORIST JIHADISTS AND LET THEM HAVE NUKES WHILE WE SELL OUR ECONOMY AND OUR NATION TO THE CHINESE! RIGHT? SO I GUESS IT IS O.K. IF WE ARE MAD AS HELL AD DONT TRUST MUSLIMS AND CHINESE! DAMN RIGHT! THIS MAY BE THE ANSWER TO YOUR QUESTION OF WHY AMERICA IS GOING DOWNHILL.
