[For more than six months, Wired's Senior Editor Kevin Poulsen has possessed - but refuses to publish - the key evidence in one of the year's most significant political stories: the arrest of U.S. Army PFC Bradley Manning for allegedly acting as WikiLeaks' source.--Glenn Greenwald, "The worsening journalistic disgrace at Wired," salon.com, December 27, 2010]

[WMR has learned from a long-time Republican Party consultant that the CIA used Sweden to launder the transfer to Wikileaks of carefully screened and redacted State Department cables and the subsequent release of the cables to pre-selected corporate news media entities. Sweden was chosen because of its so-called "press freedom and freedom of expression" traditions in an effort to make the release of the cables by Wikileaks appear to be unconnected to a covert CIA and Pentagon psychological operations program designed to place further controls on the Internet.

. . . a major international news event designed to provide increased support for governments around the world, including Sweden, the United Kingdom - where Assange is now free on restricted bail - and the United States, to place draconian curbs on the Internet.--Wayne Madsen, "Sweden co-opted by CIA/Pentagon to launder Wikileaks cables," veteranstoday.com, January 3, 2011]
