Former British Ambassador Claims Source Of Podesta Leaks "Comes From Within Washington"

Tyler Durden's picture

With the media gripped by accusatory speculation regarding the identity of the source behind the Wikileaks leak of hacked Podesta and DNC emails, much of it focused on Russia, a new theory has emerged from Craig Murray, the former British ambassador to Uzbekistan, who tells Sputnik (a Russian media outlet) that the source of the leaks are not Russian hackers but a Washington insider.

"The source of these emails and leaks has nothing to do with Russia at all. I discovered what the source was when I attended the Sam Adam's whistleblower award in Washington. The source of these emails comes from within official circles in Washington DC. You should look to Washington not to Moscow."

Asked about whether or not WikiLeaks have ever published information at the behest of Moscow, Murray said that "WikiLeaks has never published any material received from the Russian government or from any proxy of the Russian government. It's simply a completely untrue claim designed to divert attention from the content of the material."

While blasted by Washington, first by Republicans several years ago, and most recently by Democrats, the WikiLeaks revelations have often been hailed as a champion of accountability.

"I think whistleblowers have become extremely important in the West because the propaganda model — as Chomsky puts it — has been reinforced to the extent that people don't get any true information out of the media at all. It's worth saying that Julian Assange and WikiLeaks are publishers; they publish what whistleblowers leak to them," Mr. Murrary told Sputnik.

Yet, whistleblowers in the US continue to be subject to lengthy prison sentences. A key example is Chelsea Manning, who was sentenced on August 21, 2013 to a thirty five year sentence for providing WikiLeaks with sensitive military and diplomatic documents highlighting, among other things, US military conduct in Iraq. Murray also mentions the case of John Kiriakou, a former investigator of international terrorism with the CIA who turned whistleblower.

"The people who did the torture have suffered no comeback at all," adds Mr. Murray.

Taking a step back and discussing the risk of geopolitical escalation between Russia and the US, Murray told Sputnik that "there is no chance whatsoever that Russia is going to ever attack the United States, that simply isn't going to happen."

"Just as Russia is not going to attack the United Kingdom. There never has been a chance that Russia would ever attack either of these two countries. But of course the narrative is all to do with power and funneling huge amounts of American taxpayer money into the defense industry and the security industry and these people are both from the class that benefits."

It's an extremely dangerous game, says Mr. Murray, and it feeds into a foreign policy that is completely mad.

"In Syria — and I should say I'm no fan of the Assad regime at all — but the idea that backing assorted groups of jihadists to tear the country apart is a better solution is crazy and it's especially crazy when we've already messed up Iraq, Afghanistan and now we're doing exactly the same thing again and you can see it doesn't work, it only works in terms of promoting continued instability and continued spending for the military and the security services."

Finally, Murray also believes that the public can't get clear analysis of these issues from mainstream media, because they are part of the same money/power nexus.

It's fun to joke about the "Russians" meme, but her camp has shown who the true McCarthy-ites are.  Funny part is, McCarthy was pretty much right - this time, probably not so much.

If the Russians had access to John Podesta's email, they wouldn't be giving that up. They would just keep reading his email to gain more intelligence, and/or use his email to phish someobody elses.

This info was provided to ZH Tips 8 hrs before it appeared on Drudge. The ZH blogger complained about the lack of response from ZH.

"You snooze, you lose" comes to mind, but it's probably just a bandwidth problem: not enough staff to handle responses fast.

Steve Pieczenik was born in Cuba of Jewish parents from Russia and Poland and was raised in France.[2] His father, a doctor from Dombrovicz who studied and worked in Toulouse, France,[3] fled Poland before World War II. His mother, a Russian Jew from Bialystok, Poland,[3] fled Europe after many of her family members were killed.

Steve Pieczenik has a very impressive CV , to say the least.

I always suspected him of being a shill for the NWO-Deep State, especially 'cause he would periodically 'show up' on controlled opposition AlexJones' show.....

...Until about a ½ year ago.

Pieczenik finally, started to name the 'zio-jewish, israeli, rothschild' cabal as directly involved in destroying the USA.

AJ was, as always, silent when anyone points out the main perps as being apart of the above mentioned cabal.

For me, Pieczenik's explicit description of "the jewish influence" was convincing enough that, I believe his integrity should not be questioned more than the average joe.

Yes.

He's on the good side.

I truly don't give 1 fuck about his ethnicity/religion/heritage.

He's NOT a ((( )))-bastard.

He's an American & today can be called a Patriot.

Leaks via Wikileaks came from good intel & agencies (I know, sounds like an oxymoron) that decided to fight back against co-opted intel & LE agencies that Comrade Obama has quietly (and sometimes not so quietly) revolutionized to complete his Leftist "Fundamental transformation of America"

It wouldn't surprise me to learn that the NSA or CIA (or both) are behind the leaks.

No shit sherlock.  believe it or not there are still honest/trustworthy public servants in the intelligence and military. People who see the Clinton corruption/fraud for what it is and who actually understand the constitution.

Agreed.   Compartmentalization is a real phenomenon that allows good people to do bad things and sleep well at night.  However, there will always be a few that see the bigger picture and stand up for principles.   To those few individuals, I salute you!

Likewise, compartmentalization breaks down as the complexity of the system (in this the complexity of fraud) increases.  The old saying about two people being able to keep a secret if one of them is dead comes to mind.  In this case, there is so much dirt to be spread around... so many dirty hands... that the fraud has reached unimaginable levels.  Interesting how it mirrors the economy... no coincidence there.

LofP's comment reminds me of how there are still good cops. But for some reason, these good cops aren't doing much to get rid of the bad cops. So are they really good cops still if they knowingly let their comrades get away with being bad?

centerline's picture

The system is designed to swiftly and ruthlessly punish those who move against the status quo.  The IRS, for example, can turn an average life into a living hell (and should NOT have the power to do this... OT). 

There are lots of good guys who just keep thier mouths shut.  Unlike us here who just can't help ourselves to be vocal. 

Those silent good guys have limits though.  And every day we are pushing the boundaries further.  And, as psychology indicates, once enough people, previously silent, take a stand... the momentum explodes.  Same psychology as rape victims all being silent until one or two steps into the light and calls out the criminal. 

EddieLomax's picture

Yep, and this needs to be kept in mind when thinking about conspiracies/false flag attacks, too many of them rely on large numbers of people keeping something massive quiet for the benefit of a few and not their country, without evidence those sorts of conspiracies are just moonhowling.

And it is good to know there are still some people who love their country in the government, they seem like a dying breed these days.

Obviously.  There's no Russian hackers... that's a Clintonian Red Herring.  It's probably someone high up in their staff that they don't want to impugn - maybe even Billy, who's getting back at HRC for all those years of strife he's had to drag her around for her shot at the White House (if she goes down in flames, I'll bet he drops her like a hot potato).  So... it's those dastardly Russians up to their old Cold War tricks again!  Come to think of it, I wonder if the whole Cold War thing was a concoction of the political establishment.  hmmmm

IndyPat's picture

Oh...hold up. There are most certainly Russian hackers. Arguably, they are some of the best there is.
It's just that they ain't gonna get caught by these lightweights. The most definitely aren't gonna wrap their hacks in all things Russian. It's laughable. The arguments the Hill staff put out are truly scary in the fact that all of them have such a shallow, pop culture understanding of hacking. Both in methods and motivations. The Russian hacking aruemnets they make are incredibly dull and Hollywood.

Bryan's picture

Yes, you are right.  Thanks for the correction.  :-)   And the U.S. has hackers too (as do most 1st world countries), so it's not just the 'evil Russians'. 

IndyPat's picture

Plus, nobody seems interested in pointing out the difference between hacking and spying.
If you lump it all in as hacking, then basically any country with an intel agency are hackers. The term is misused. It's motive that sets the two apart.
