WikiLeaks Promises to Reveal Pentagon Murder Cover-up: US Government Feels Threatened

WikiLeaks Controversy is not something new to WikiLeaks – a website notorious for leaking sensitive governmental, corporate, organizational, or religious documents. In the past, they have leaked Guantánamo Bay procedures, documents belonging to the Church of Scientology, contents of Sarah Palin’s e-mail account and internet censorship lists.

Obviously, over the years WikiLeaks has managed to anger quite a few people, organizations and governments around the world. In fact, the US Army even considered attacking WikiLeaks in the past. According to The Register, a 2008 report by the Army Counterintelligence Center, classified Secret, called for a mole hunt and prosecutions to undermine potential sources’ trust in WikiLeaks.

Due to fundraising problems, WikiLeaks had to close shop for several months. However, it bounced back in February ’10 and is once again courting trouble. WikiLeaks has promised to reveal a Pentagon murder cover-up at the US National Press Club on April 5. Although, very little information is available about the nature of the information available to WikiLeaks, it is definitely sensitive enough to prompt the US government into action.

A flurry of recent updates on the official WikiLeaks Twitter account suggests that they are currently under an aggressive US and Icelandic surveillance operation. Here are the recent tweets by WikiLeaks in chronological order:

  • WikiLeaks is currently under an aggressive US and Icelandic surveillance operation. Following/photographing/filming/detaining.
  • If anything happens to us, you know why: it is our Apr 5 film. And you know who is responsible.
  • Two under State Dep diplomatic cover followed our editor from Iceland to on Thursday.
  • One related person was detained for 22 hours. Computer’s seized.That’s
  • We know our possession of the decrypted airstrike video is now being discussed at the highest levels of US command.
  • If you know more about the operations against us, contact
  • We have been shown secret photos of our production meetings and been asked specific questions during detention related to the airstrike.
  • We have airline records of the State Dep/CIA tails. Don’t think you can get away with it. You cannot. This is WikiLeaks.

In the past, WikiLeaks has played a pivotal role in exposing wrongdoing. It has managed to remain true to its principle of only publishing documents of political, diplomatic, historical or ethical interest. Over the years, it has managed to gain both respect and reputation for making a positive impact.

At the moment, the big question is, did WikiLeaks byte off more than it can chew? It will be interesting to observe how events unfold over the next few days. Stay tuned for more updates.

Update: A possibly related slightly older tweet reveals a bit more about the current situation:

Finally cracked the encryption to US military video in which journalists, among others, are shot. Thanks to all who donated $/CPUs.

      If Julian Assange is released on bail, he needs to be well guarded, people who speak up have been known to dissapear or been killed, likeMartin Luther King ,President Kennedy, be very vigilant and well guarded .big people are involved here, everyone knows who they are. may god keep him safe.

    What happened to U.S. values of freedom of speech.
    The U.S. is grossly hypocritical.
    Wikileaks is doing what the U.S. has done to others for years.
    Assange is a political prisoner. The Swedes should hang their head in shame for cowtowing to American pressure.
    Will the U.S. forget Assange’s human rights and imprison him down in Cuba without charge.
    So much for “human Rights” America has no right to lecture China and other countries on human rights when you see what they do to others.
    Hang your head in shame America and rewrite your fifth ammendment for it’s a joke as is the U.S.

    we are used to think the Watergate scandal was discovered by those two journalists at the Washington Post: Bernstein and Woodward. But Woodward was a former Naval Intelligence officer, he worked at the ONI (Office of Naval Intelligence). where he was the briefing officer for Admiral Moorer, head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff who had authorized his subordinates to spy on the White House´s National Security Counsel…..Woodward during the Watergate investigation was fed by the FBI through deep throat, aka FBI Associate Director Mark Felt. Woodward’s supervisor was Ben Bradlee, a former CIA propaganda officer. During his service Bradlee joined the staff of the Office of U.S. Information and Educational Exchange (USIE), the embassy’s propaganda unit. USIE produced films, magazines, research, speeches, and news items for use by the CIA throughout Europe. USIE (later known as USIA) also controlled the Voice of America, a means of disseminating pro-American “cultural information” worldwide….Do I have to go on?
    In practice the Watergate was a news show run by the United States Intelligence community to get rid of Richard Nixon. And the same is happening with this Wikileaks.
    America is still run by INTELLIGENCE
