Could also be a misdirections. Wikileaks founder says, "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." Perhaps to crackdown on Internet?

Ben: Yes, you are right: we should be very skeptical about everything we hear. It is better to assume that everything we come across contains at least some mis-info, as this guy says:

Vet the data as you would anything else from any source. Use your skills of discernment. For me, the most worrying thing about WikiLeaks is the promotion it receives from the corporate media. Even the trash talking Wired is promoting Wikileaks by constantly mentioning it.
In the end, though, obsessing about disinfo this and disinfo that is generally a waste of time. It’s safe to assume that damn near everything we come across contains disinfo.
There is the issue of stench, however. Sources that say, categorically, that there’s nothing to see here on 9/11 smell really bad to me. As bad as anything can smell. (See my maggot bucket if you think that I don’t know what smells bad.)

Ben: For me the important part of these "revelations" is the confirmation of the fact that US special forces are using assassination squads and covering up the death of civilians.
From a Christian perspective such facts show beyond reasonable doubt that a Christian cannot in good conscience support US war against Iraq, Afghanistan and possibly Iran, since the state is lying and following principles in theory and practice which directly contradict the principles of "Just war theory".
Also, it is another reason why we should be demanding from the state to bring our troops back as, like in Vietnam, they are being forced into dehumanizing situations for no good reason. (The Military suicide rate continues to increase: Suicide Claims More US Military Lives Than Afghan War
The Bush/Obama War on Terror is a scam, leading to the death of millions of innocent civilians and soldiers. The sooner people wake up to this fact the better.
