WikiLeaks Publishes Terrorist To-Do List

From the Agence France-Presse:

WikiLeaks reveals US global interests list

December 6, 2010

WASHINGTON — WikiLeaks has divulged a secret list compiled by Washington of key infrastructure sites around the world that could pose a critical danger to US security if they come under terrorist attack…

Among other revelations, the latest WikiLeaks document dump showed Australia’s then leader Kevin Rudd warning US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton that force might be needed against China "if everything goes wrong".

A State Department cable from February 2009 asked US missions to update a list of infrastructure and key resources worldwide whose loss "could critically impact" the country’s public health, economic life and national security.

It details undersea cables, key communications, ports, mineral resources and firms of strategic importance in countries ranging from Britain to New Zealand, via Africa, the Middle East and China.

A Canadian hydroelectric plant is described as a "critical irreplaceable source of power to portions of Northeast US," while a Siemens factory in Germany does "essentially irreplaceable production of key chemicals".

Also listed are European manufacturers of vaccines for smallpox and rabies, an Italian maker of treatment for snake-bite venom, and a German company making treatment for plutonium poisoning.

Why else would WikiLeaks publish this except to help terrorists and other US enemies with their targeting lists? Is there any doubt that Mr. Assange and his pals are terrorists on a jihad against the United States?

Who can doubt that his entire purpose is to try to cut down America’s standing in the world one way or another? In fact, maybe we should start calling him ‘Barack Hussein’ Assange.

According to the diplomatic cable, the request was designed "to strengthen national preparedness, timely response, and rapid recovery in the event of an attack, natural disaster or other emergency".

Compilation of the list would help "prevent, deter, neutralize or mitigate the effects of deliberate efforts by terrorists to destroy, incapacitate or exploit" sites deemed of "vital" importance to the United States.

Malcolm Rifkind, a former British defense and foreign secretary, lashed out at WikiLeaks for releasing the list.

"This is further evidence that they have been generally irresponsible, bordering on criminal. This is the kind of information terrorists are interested in knowing," he said, according to British media

"Bordering on criminal"? We take it that is British understatement.

    The basic international and diplomatic policy of the United States—which kept us out of disastrous foreign wars and other expensive entanglements abroad for over a hundred years—is usually assumed to date from Washington’s Farewell Address of 1796. But it actually goes back a generation before this. It was clearly stated by John Adams in connection with the negotiations for French aid in 1776. Adams warned against making any alliance “which should entangle us in any future wars in Europe.”

    At the close of the Revolutionary War, the Congress, under the Articles of Confederation, stated our traditional policy of neutrality as well as it has ever been expounded: “The true interest of the States requires that they should be as little as possible entangled in the politics and controversies of European nations.” This stand was formally invoked in President Washington’s forthright Neutrality Proclamation of April 22, 1793, and reaffirmed in his famous Farewell Address of September 17, 1796.

    The same clear policy of neutrality and avoidance of foreign involvements was heartily echoed by Thomas Jefferson in his first inaugural address: “Peace, commerce and honest friendship with all nations—entangling alliances with none.”

    Would that the men who followed had respected this wisdom. Because we wouldn’t now be fretting over Julian Assange

    It wouldn’t surpise me one iota to learn that wikeleaks is a device to undermine the security of the west.

    We are, after all, bad to the bone.

    And somebody has to correct that, doesn’t he?

    • Mithrandir says:

      I wonder if all those conservatives who said, “Waterboarding was OK, because we got a lot of valuable information out of it” would say the same things about Wikileaks?

      It’s all much-ado-about nothing, our masters got embarrassed, that’s why all the whining and hand-wringing.

    If the WikiLeaks offer any benefit, it is the glaringly obvious need to clean house on many levels at the State Department.

    There’s too much loose talk & attitudes regarding this country’s security over there.

    Rush may have pinned down what wikileaks is all about:

    “RUSH: All right, WikiLeaks. WikiLeaks. Did you notice something? Up until recently, this WikiLeaks guy was a “whistleblower.” Julian Assange was a whistleblower. But now? Now that some of these leaks involve Hillary and the fraud that was global warming, now this guy is not a whistleblower. He’s a muckraker. He’s a guided missile! You know what the real downfall of this is gonna be? There’s gonna be a tightening on Internet freedom. You watch. Because of this, somebody in this regime is gonna propose tightening down on regulations and “net neutrality” is gonna come along and so forth. That’s gonna be the upshot of all this. It’s not a good thing.

    I don’t think terrorists need Wikileaks to tell them where all the important and soft targets are. They will just resort to the Mubai-style attacks: a bunch of hoodlums rampaging with guns. –Should there be backscanners in all hotels now too?

    On Judge Napolitano’s FREEDOM WATCH show, Philadelphia police RANDOMLY search people on the street now. 8% we charged with a crime. I suspect THIS, airport scanners, the coming Wiki-internet monitoring bill soon to come up is preparing us for a coming economic meltdown, or nuclear attack.

    It’s all about conditioning us for dictatorial rule.

    Assange was arrested a little while ago. The tool of the left will have to sit in jail for about six hours before Soros is awakened for bail money. Then it will be back to business as usual. Wikileaks…and the people who run it need to be arrested. And prevented from using a computer ever again. There. Sanitized to keep people from being aghast at what I really think should happen to them all.
