CIA Director Smears Wikileaks After Tweeting Them During 2016 Election

CIA Director Mike Pompeo blasted Wikileaks during an event held by the Center for Strategic & International Studies today, despite having promoted the publisher's leaks in 2016 to attack political opponents during the U.S. Presidential elections.

Pompeo took an extremely hard line with the publishing giant, labelling them a "non-state hostile intelligence service" before repeating the baseless contention that Wikileaks was abetted by the Russian Federation, despite FBI Director James Comey's assertion in late March that Wikileaks has never dealt directly with the Russian government.


Pompeo further stated that the Russian media outlet Russia Today (RT) had actively collaborated with Wikileaks, and that Wikileaks founder Julian Assange was a narcissist and a fraud "hiding behind a computer screen." Mr. Assange is currently residing in Ecuador’s London Embassy, where he has been held in de-facto captivity since August 2012 after being granted asylum by Ecuador. On April 6, 2016 the United Nations Working Group on Arbitrary Detention found that Assange’s detention was unlawful. They ordered that he be released immediately and compensated by Sweden and the United Kingdom for the roles these states played in his captivity.

Director Pompeo's comments are ironic given that during the 2016 election, he was happy to publicize Wikileaks' release of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) emails which proved that the DNC had been committing election fraud during the Democratic primary race and improperly communicating with members of the American media. Pompeo tweeted about about the release and accused then President Barack Obama of being complicit in the primary fraud and collusion with the press.

The apparent policy flip by Pompeo comes after Wikileaks began to release their Vault 7 series of leaks, showing that the CIA has been improperly accessing the personal electronic devices of Americans, was concealing known exploits from product manufacturers, utilizes false attribution techniques allowing them to conceal their hacking attacks by portraying them as coming from another country and uses tools which appear to have been developed by Russian criminal organizations.

Oh ye of little faith.

Does anyone see that satan/lucifer is playing the right and left in a whipped up firestorm of coming chaos?

Whoduh thuk...angry right just barely getting over the tempest of years of built up frustration watching the criminality and corruption get so far out of hand. Totally uncontrollable govt . And the communist militant just waiting for an excuse to revolution to destroy America from within, left. Angry angry in hissy fitittus, angry because the witch lost.

Sigh...two angry sides are being given a common escape goat. Satanic lucifer laughs.

So, see how this is going? Anger on the left like a smoldering ember in a burnt down house amid a tinder dry city ready for a spark to ignite them all in what, one common cause?

Angry, homeless, hungry masses being purposely whipped into the hate corner for the next move from babylon...their master of unreality.

One day at a time is as fast as the world turns.

Let time tell which way this seemingly woarmongering is going to go. Has it ever occurred to anyone that all this banter and uppity false flagology is actually the Greatest Shit Show on Earth? What if all these actors and actresses are playing each part in the best real way they can all having just one purpose. To keep people from Seeing the Return of The Lord. To master the acts of distractionology? Then to distract from the distractions until there are so many distractions, one never looks up anymoar. They just look for food and to not be killed by a bigger gang of monkeys in the shooting concrete jungle once known as, America.

Like ol Zak used to say, what if? He would start many of his discussions this way to ask questions to get people to ponder. Yeah, a lost human quality in the minds of sum. Pondering, what if Nibiru is real? Or, what if there are multiple Brown dwarfs out there looming...closing in. And, what if they carry a wild host of falling angels? Or, fireballs from the heavens?

Meh...of course this is just a bunch of words but...what if?



Got Vit D-3 to calm that aching heart?

Simply amazing.. In the ten years Wikileaks has been around, they have never been accused of being in bed with the Russians......until Hillary lost the election.
Tells me, is there any corner of the world that Vlad is NOT secretly running?? Any sphere of influence where he is NOT secretly pulling strings?? Any misfortune that he is NOT secretly responsible for?? A single damn conspiracy theory that does NOT begin and end with him???

Let's talk about those because this is getting ridiculously redundant.

It is Trump admin policy to praise something when it helps you only to slam it when it may hurt you. Or in the case of something like the stock market bubble, trash it when you're not in office but boast about it when you are in office. 

Total fucking clown and gong show going on there.

Well, not his best moment, but Assange should have specified a bit considering the CIA is everywhere. The word "rogue" would have helped a bit. What I mean is that Pompeo was only 1 of a couple of people that told Trump the Syria thing was a false flag, so that's more likely the reason he was set off by Assange. I do believe Pompeo is trying to clean things up. I've watched alot of him during congressional hearings and he comes off highly genuine.

It looks really bad, like the fool has gone into total melt down. I don't know if he is trying to gain sympathy for the CIA but it is not the kind of agency that will ever get it, working quitely obviously does not suit this fools big mouth.

The CIA obviously told him some things, that he is incapable of psychologically handling and has now exposed himself as an easy victim for psyops, a risk to everyone. Publicly declaring that all non-US citizens have no right to free speech ie have no rights what so ever, any where in the world, what they hell is that about, seriously way to go, to do major damage to US reputation, I could not imagine a worse statement.

Still the same nonsense, Russia having those secrets is not bad but Wikileaks exposing that Russia has those secrets is bad, why? Somehow the enemy having those secrets is OK but the US public and the citizens with no rights of the US's so called allies is bad. PS saying that citizens of allied states have less rights than citizens of the US is a really, really bad thing to do, pretty much he has stated that US allies are not allies just vassal states that must obey and their citizens are vassals without rights who also must obey (subhumans without rights, including four of the five eyes, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, United Kingdom).

It is going to be hard to fire him so soon, so I'll guess he ends up with a debiltating illness that forces his resignation. Why the hell, wasn't that speech vetted by smarter people in the CIA, what the fuck are you guys and gals doing?

Tell me its not true...this is shaping up to be the biggest double cross since "The Sting". And brother, it fucking stings.

Assange, Snowden, Manning, Barret Brown, and hopefully many more to follow; are the only brave men and women saving the world from tyranny and oppression.

Trump owes these people his eternal thanks.

Assange is the reason Trump is in the white house.

Assange may very well be the reason trump gets his stupid ass impeached, if he keeps up the double cross.

Well, he did shoot down TPP, TTIP and is in the process of undoing NAFTA.

But for the sake of integrity, I truly hope he is just not as smart as he makes himself out to be and that he is being misled by the establishment (swamp) that he has not eliminated yet.

There may be a glimmer of hope he will see the light and get back on his original purported path.

The bad thing is that more people have died unnecessarily in this process.

I’m thinking of adding a couple of monikers for him in addition to “President Benedict Trumpbama”.

“President Not Hillary” is one and “President Used Car Salesman-In-Chief” is the other.

They all fit depending upon the issue he lied to us during the campaign about.

For example, he is following through on immigration so he is “President Not Hillary” on this.

When it comes to “phenomenal, you’re going to love it” tax reform he is “President Used Car Salesman-In-Chief”.

Regarding Wikileaks, foreign entanglements, illegal bombing and murder, he is “President Benedict Trumpbama”.
