The release of documents pertaining to the war in Afghanistan by WikiLeaks has been the cause of a great deal of controversy. Though WikiLeaks maintains it would never release any information that could put soldiers in danger, the release of somewhat sensitive documents has continued. The website recently released a CIA document that explores non-mainstream dogma of the role of the U.S. and the CIA in world terrorism. The Central Intelligence Agency and the Pentagon have decried the release, though disclosed that the document does not pose a risk when out in the open.
WikiLeaks releases classified CIA paper
WikiLeaks posted a CIA report on its website, according to CNN, which was previously classified. The report is titled “What if Foreigners see the United States as as ‘Exporter of Terrorism?’” and the subject is an exploration of the United States exporting terrorism through foreign policy. It isn’t known how the document was obtained. Examples are highlighted such as the Irish Republican Army receiving aid from Irish Americans, Jewish-American support for extremist Israeli terrorist groups and so forth. The main focus of the report is the potential ramifications should the U.S. be perceived as a creator and exporter of terrorism.
Typical for Red Cell
The document was created by a division of the CIA called Red Cell. The purpose of this group is to examine any weaknesses or theories that challenge conventional dogma of U.S. policy. More or less, the job of Red Cell is to look at things from a different point of view. The CIA and the Pentagon have both condemned the latest leak. Authorities have admitted that the document poses no serious threat but that all documents from the Defense Department or CIA should be removed and returned.
WikiLeaks founder in odd legal dispute
Founder and editor of the website, Julian Assange, is no stranger to being at the center of controversy. He was arrested in absentia for rape in Sweden. The warrant was revoked by a judge the day after the charges were filed. Assange has attributed the charges to a smear campaign against him by offended governments conspiring with European legal authorities. He has been in legal trouble for hacking in Australia, his home country.
