Is there Something Rotten in America?

When William Shakespeare, the great Playwright in our English language, wanted to make a point about the corruption in his country, he used the analogy of a ghost walking the ramparts of Elsinore Castle in Denmark, as a warning of all of those who could see and hear him, explaining to his listeners to be extremely careful about all they could see and hear. Please bear with me while I provide a similar warning about those who believe mistakenly that the alleged dramatic release of Wikileaks, to warn our citizens about the meaning of Wikileaks' "Revelation". In fact, were these leaks a warning at all, but only another method to obfuscate what WE are doing in Afghanistan: The latest "coup" allegedly involved leaks of thousands of pages of supposedly sensitive documents regarding US informers within the "Taliban" in Afghanistan and their ties to senior people linked to Pakistan's ISI military intelligence. As a former Intelligence Operations Officer of our 4th US Armored Division in Germany, I immediately smelled a "rat". The "release" was merely calculated disinformation to obfuscate the REAL events in Afghanistan: The one figure most prominently mentioned, General Hamid Gul, former head of the Pakistani military intelligence agency, ISI, is the man who during the 1980's coordinated the CIA-financed Mujahideen guerilla war in Afghanistan against the Soviet regime there. Gul is accused of regularly meeting Al Qaeda and Taliban, and orchestrating suicide attacks against NATO forces in the war zone. Please check rense.com, and read the entire fraudulently "leaked" story, as reported by F. William Engdahl. Though the premise is false, the story is still very good reading!
