Wikileaks’ Julian Assange says he has emails that directly tie Hillary Clinton to weapons which ended up in the hands of Islamic State (ISIS) jihadists.
In a new interview, Assange admitted that Clinton’s emails, which Wikileaks now has, implicate the former Secretary of State in the Libyan intervention when weapons flowed into Syria and ultimately were used by ISIS members, according to Democracy Now.
Well, WikiLeaks has become the rebel library of Alexandria. It is the single most significant collection of information that doesn’t exist elsewhere, in a searchable, accessible, citable form, about how modern institutions actually behave. And it’s gone on to set people free from prison, where documents have been used in their court cases; hold the CIA accountable for renditions programs; feed into election cycles, which have resulted in the termination of, in some case—or contributed to the termination of governments, in some cases, taken the heads of intelligence agencies, ministers of defense and so on. So, you know, our civilization can only be as good as our knowledge of what our civilization is. We can’t possibly hope to reform that which we do not understand.
So, those Hillary Clinton emails, they connect together with the cables that we have published of Hillary Clinton, creating a rich picture of how Hillary Clinton performs in office, but, more broadly, how the U.S. Department of State operates. So, for example, the disastrous, absolutely disastrous intervention in Libya, the destruction of the Gaddafi government, which led to the occupation of ISIS of large segments of that country, weapons flows going over to Syria, being pushed by Hillary Clinton, into jihadists within Syria, including ISIS, that’s there in those emails. There’s more than 1,700 emails in Hillary Clinton’s collection, that we have released, just about Libya alone.
Just these last few weeks, Wikileaks has released thousands of emails which exposed how the Democratic National Committee (DNC) conspired during the Democratic primary against Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt and worked with the media to drive positive narratives about Clinton.
Following the DNC leak, former DNC chairwoman was forced to resign, but was immediately hired by Clinton’s campaign.
