We dodged a bullet.
Julian Assange, founder of the whistle-blowing site WikiLeaks revealed emails that might link Clinton and ISIS.
He also accused defeated Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton of misleading Americans about the true extent of Islamic State’s supports to Wahington’s Middle East Allies.
Julian Assange, founder of WikiLeaks
“Most significant email”
In the interview with John Pilger broadcasted last Saturday by RT and produced by Dartmouth Films, Assange calls the newly leaked information “the most significant email in the whole collection.”
In the September 27, 2014 email made public by WikiLeaks last month, Clinton urges then advisor to President Barack Obama John Podesta to “bring pressure” on Qatar and Saudi Arabia.
The email reads:
“This entire effort should be done with a low profile, avoiding the massive traditional military operations that are at best temporary solutions. While this military/para-military operation is moving forward, we need to use our diplomatic and more traditional intelligence assets to bring pressure on the governments of Qatar and Saudi Arabia, which are providing clandestine financial and logistic support to ISIL and other radical Sunni groups in the region.”
Later in the email chain, Podesta became discomfited discussing the matters on an unsecured network, and replied, “Yes and interesting but not for this site.”
“All serious analysts know, and even the US government has agreed, that some Saudi figures have been supporting ISIS and funding ISIS, but the dodge has always been that it is some ‘rogue’ princes using their oil money to do whatever they like, but actually the government disapproves,” he said.
“But that email says that it is the government of Saudi Arabia, and the government of Qatar that have been funding ISIS,” he added.
The interview between Assange and Pilger took place at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, where Assange has been staying as a refugee since 2012.
Excerpt from the interview:
John Pilger: The Saudis, the Qataris, the Moroccans, the Bahrainis, particularly the first two, are giving all this money to the Clinton Foundation, while Hillary Clinton is secretary of state, and the State Department is approving massive arms sales, particularly Saudi Arabia.
Julian Assange: Under Hillary Clinton – and the Clinton emails reveal a significant discussion of it – the biggest-ever arms deal in the world was made with Saudi Arabia: more than $80 billion. During her tenure, the total arms exports from the US doubled in dollar value.
Pilger: Of course, the consequence of that is that this notorious jihadist group, called ISIL or ISIS, is created largely with money from people who are giving money to the Clinton Foundation?
There have been talks in the past that Clinton and ISIS are linked, but no strong evidence has surfaced. These were dismissed at conspiracies.
Meanwhile, Pilger asked Assange about the accusation that WikiLeaks is looking to tilt the favor of the voters to Donald Trump, perhaps at Russia’s bidding. This accusation came from Clinton’s camp and several Western media outlets.
He dismissed the potential of a Trump presidency. He said that this is not due to his standing with the voters, but because he “would not be permitted to win.”
If this interview and the emails weren’t leaked, do you think President-elect Donald Trump could still have won? Does this information prove Clinton and ISIS are related?
