As we go to air, the Wikileaks controversy continues to dominate the news, and we turn now to look at broader issues around the leaked material.

With the focus entirely on the personality and legal debacle of Julian Assange, the embattled whistle blower and arguably greater victim in all of this is PFC Bradley Manning, who has been locked in an isolation cell for the past seven months under extremely restrictive conditions which amount to torture. He is prevented from exercising in his cell and has been forcibly medicated with anti-depressants.

Bradley Manning is accused of being the source for the leaked Baghdad "Collateral Murder" video which thrust Wikileaks into the international spotlight in April 2010.

Meanwhile, there are ongoing questions regarding the integrity of Julian Assange because of his sweeping dismissal of 9/11 conspiracy theories. Here are his exact words as transcribed by Matthew Bell of the Belfast Telegraph on 19 July 2010: "I'm constantly annoyed that people are distracted by false conspiracies such as 9/11, when all around we provide evidence of real conspiracies, for war or mass financial fraud.".

Michel Chossudovsky has probed into the origins of Wikileaks and observes the following:


Wikileaks' geopolitical focus on "oppressive regimes" in Eurasia and the Middle East was "appealing" to America's elites, i.e. it seemingly matched stated US foreign policy objectives. Moreover, the composition of the Wikileaks team (which included Chinese dissidents), not to mention the methodology of "exposing secrets" of foreign governments, were in tune with the practices of US covert operations geared towards triggering "regime change" and fostering "color revolutions" in different parts of the World.

Today we welcome to the show veteran broadcaster and media professional Anthony Lawson to discuss these matters and more. Anthony recently posted a video on youtube highly critical of Assange, suggesting that "if Julian Assange did not already exist then the CIA and Mossad would need to invent him". This viewpoint, which is shared by a variety of independent researchers, stems from the observation that the bulk of material leaked seems to prop up US foreign policy objectives while leaving Israel completely untouched.

Anthony pulls no punches in this interview, so fasten your seat belts folks!

It is our opinion nonetheless that the case of PFC Manning is a clear instance of a genuine whistle blower risking his career for the sake of transparency, justice and freedom.

Wishing you the very best of Christmases from the crew at TNRA, may we suggest you also visit the Bradley Manning support network where you can leave a donation for this brave young man.

Well, I have to say that what Anthony was saying about Julian not touching 911 does sound a bit suss to me too. I would really hope not but this does seem more and more like another hoax, swindle, a distraction to our real issues.

Could this be another bull shit distraction like global warming? Who knows. I really hope not.

Great show, keep it up.

The other half of this story is that Bradley Manning is a homosexual gay activist. Who broke up with his boyfriend and had huge chip against the US Army policy of Don’t ask don’t tell (D.A.D.T.) and thus leaked the data base out of contempt. He is not the gentile soul and freedom warrior he is made out to be in the general media. He was without doubt depressed as shown in his blogs, and thus was put on medications and minimum bedding due to been on suicide watch. see Wikileaks Leaker an Angry and Confused Soldierhttp://www.pittsreport.com/2010/11/wikileaks-leaker-an-angry-and-confused-soldier-what-one-homo-has-already-done-to-the-us-military/
I believe this story has political motives from the US government as well.

They did invent Assange, MK cult child.
Research his family.

At least he exists.  Bradley Manning is fictitious.

Free speech is one paradox to use Hereward’s word.  Another paradox is freedom of choice. Hereward has touched on something here, I reckon, when it comes to exposing little children with jabs that cause some to have adverse affects incliding some reported siezures.  The idea of ‘freedom of choice’ is treated as an article of faith by some people only when it suits them.  Look at this comment on same-sex ‘marriage’ by Fairfax media columnist Clementine Ford (The Age, Feb 3, 2015). Quote, “The pursuit of marriage equality is vital, not least of which is because every Australian of legal age should have the right to embrace or reject it as they see fit and according to their own system of values.”  So what happens if we replace the idea of ‘same sex marriage’ with “vacination’? An interesting mental excercise. . . . . .

Yeah well of course they spy on people using gmail, read the international terrorist laws. The politicians gave themselves exclusive rights to spy on who they like when they like however they like.
They are aiming for an 1984 type deal in my opinion and they will continue to aim for that as longs as we let them, the sad part being that 90% of the people in our country do just let them.
I say good on ya for speaking the truth but the more relevant topic would be the reduction in our rights that abott has made since he sat in the seat. he is going one further than just spying by giving ASIO the right to arrest anyone they want for no apparent reason. that’s new news.
The fact that government agencies pay for our private information has been an issue for a long time.
Since there was an internet to spy with I’d say. The internet just isn’t a private entity regardless of how anyone sells their website.

Crypto Currencies will rocket in value as the FIAT system devalues itself.

Only problem is, 50% of cryptos are produced in their first year normally.

This is a pretty big deal in my opinion thus I’m calling for a Bitcoin-do-over.
