Try looking at this in a different way...
What if Wikileaks were really the ultimate false flag operation, whereby CIA and State leak their own material? There are some advantages to this, of course:
- They can embarrass and endanger whomever they want
- They can blame any policy failure on the leaks promulgated by Wikileaks
And, if it ever gets out of control, can claim perfect justification in silencing Wikileaks.
