WikiLeaks Fends Off Cyber Attack

Kurt Nimmo

Remember when the Pentagon promised to put a missile down the smokestack of anybody who hacks the elite?

It hasn’t done that yet with WikiLeaks, but somebody is doing the next best thing—launching a coordinated cyber attack.

The attack came after it released a new round of DNC emails.

It also followed Julian Assange’s interview with John Pilger.

During the interview, Assange insisted the hacked DNC emails were not provided by the Russians. He also said Donald Trump would not be permitted to win the election.

In October Obama told the CIA to prepare for a cyber war with Russia.

Zero Hedge remarked:

In what is looking more and more like a season finale of the HBO series “House of Cards” with each passing day, the Obama administration is now literally threatening a cyber war with Russia over allegations it was behind the hacking of Clinton’s emails. According to an exclusive NBC report, the Obama administration “is contemplating an unprecedented cyber covert action” (though it’s unclear how exactly it’s covert if Biden is announcing it to the world via an interview with Chuck Todd) against Russia, in “retaliation for alleged” interference in the American presidential election, and has asked the CIA to draft plans for a “wide-ranging “clandestine” cyber operation designed to harass and “embarrass” the Kremlin leadership.”

So now the Obama administration is overtly leveraging the full power of the United States to intimidate foreign governments, and most likely Julian Assange, in order to maintain control of the Executive Branch of the government. Does anyone within the mainstream media see any problems with this? Certainly Chuck Todd and NBC do not. And notice that even the NBC article refers to “alleged” Russian interference because not a shred of evidence has been presented to prove that senior Russian officials were actually behind the hacking of Hillary’s emails…but who needs facts when you have a complicit media eager to advance whatever propaganda is necessary to maintain power?

It’s fair to say the CIA is responsible for the DoS attack on WikiLeaks, although there is no evidence of this.

Cui bono. Only the state and its sycophants stand to gain from taking down WikiLeaks.
