The scientist behind the bogus claim in a Nobel Prize-winning UN report that Himalayan glaciers will have melted by 2035 last night admitted it was included purely to put political pressure on world leaders. Dr Murari Lal also said he was well aware the statement, in the 2007 report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate [...]
HAMMAMET, Tunisia — This ancient Mediterranean hamlet, advertised as the Tunisian St.-Tropez, has long been the favorite summer getaway of President Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali and his large extended family, many of whom have built vast beachfront mansions here with the wealth they have amassed during his years in power.

When considering Wikileaks, we must be cognizant of the following facts, which ought to give any sane person pause:
1. There is very little in the way of concrete, independently verifiable fact in existence to check Julian Assange’s version of his own past.
2.

The FBI on Tuesday added four more names to the list of antiwar activists subpoenaed to testify before a grand jury as part of an investigation into whether members of the peace movement provided “material support” for terrorism.
Julian Assange gave his first cable news interview since his release from jail to MSNBC’s Cenk Uygur on Wednesday, and he had harsh words for both politicians and the media — especially Fox News.
U.S. Soldiers share how they were encouraged to carry extra AK-47′s in their vehicles at all times in case they accidentally killed Iraqi civilians. Then they can just drop weapons near the bodies, and turn the civilians into insurgents.
After nine years of war in Afghanistan, costing over $100 billion in taxpayer money and 700 American lives, the full truth about this murky conflict remains elusive.
The government and media have colluded to paint the picture of a noble, patriotic, heroic, flag-waving American crusade in Afghanistan that is, alas, very far from reality. As the 19th century cynic Ambrose Bierce pointedly observed of patriots – “the dupe of statesmen; the tool of conquerors.”
WikiLeaks is a touchstone. Amid all the brouhaha and legal shenanigans engaged in by various governments – the Brits, the Swedes, the Americans – the prospect of having a web site devoted to spilling the secrets of the elites has brought out everyone’strue colors.
