Wikileaks has the advantage of being the peoples intelligence center that exposes the false flag intelligence of the U.S. Ied Imperialist Camp that the whitehouse and the Pentagon spreads throughout the world. Wikileaks is a fountain of freedom of the press, which the bought off monopoly media censors, deletes, and denighs is going on throughout the Imperialist ruled world.
Wikileaks gives the people the anti-fascist knowledge that the people need to carry through its opposition to the growing fascist assault on the liberation forces of the insurgent peoples. In short they are a media break through necessary to the forming anti-fascist united front globally. Manning and Assange are true heroes for the peoples of the world for showing a path of exposure of Imperialist empire building that destroys the environment with pollution and unjust wars, and illegal violence.
