This was posted on twitter by Wikileaks on Saturday: Real change begins Monday in the WashPost. By the years end, a reformation. Lights on. Rats out..

On Monday the Washington Post began a serial story that essentially describes that we have had a fourth branch of government created in secret without our approval starting after 9/11 by the Bush administration and continuing under the Obama administration. You know how much those Republicans hate big government and  are all about reducing govenment spending...not. It is so big it can't be managed and is one of two main  reasons we have such a huge deficit. They are everywhere including Alaska. The story is very complex. The article is a thing to behold and I never thought I would say that about the Washington Post. There is no telling where this huge monster of top secret spying could take us. It is clearly at in great part designed as an offshoot to the military-industrial complex so an elite group of people can get rich off the tax payers. We are paying for this monstrosity and a ridiculous war while people continue to loose their jobs and homes.

In this video Julian Assange of Wikileaks says, "So, secret planning is usually secret for a reason, because if it is abusive it will be opposed. So, it is our task to find secret abusive plans and expose them where they can be opposed before they are implemented."

2010 Oslo Freedom Forum:

 John Pilger on the use of propaganda by the United States government:

But there is a problem. Most Americans are opposed to these wars and to the billions of dollars spent on them. That their brainwashing so often fails is America’s greatest virtue. This is frequnetly due to courageous mavericks, especially those who emerge from the centrifuge of power. In 1971, military analyst Daniel Ellsberg leaked documents known as the Pentagon Papers which put the lie to almost everything two presidents had claimed about Vietnam. Many of these insiders are not even renegades. I have a section in my address book filled with the names of former officers of the CIA, who have spoken out. They have no equivalent in Britain.

Ask yourself this, why didn't President Obama or any legislator tell us about this?

Thanks for posting about this, Celia, for most Americans have no idea about their government's secret projects. Hats off to the Washington Post for launching this series, which I read about on the Above Top Secret website.


'The Real U.S. Government' is an article by Glenn Greenwald that discusses WaPo's publication.


I've been an avid follower of whistleblowers for years. I firmly believe that to be awake and aware is to be forearmed. One of my favourite sites is:
