In my post yesterday, I quoted from internal WikiLeaks e-mails pointing towards the real possibility of finding that George Soros was involved in helping to get WikiLeaks off the ground - perhaps by providing seed money to WikiLeaks or providing use of his name and connections to raise money, for example. And even the George Soros-funded Media Matters does not deny Glenn Beck’s claim that the WikiLeaks attorney Mark Stephens has done some pro bono work for Soros’ Open Society Institute.
Nevertheless, if you needed any more proof that WikiLeaks and George Soros’ shadow network of progressive groups are ideological soul mates, you need look no further than the Director of the New Internationalism Project, Phyllis Bennis, at the Soros-funded Institute for Policy Studies. She sees the release of so many purloined secret documents of the U.S. government as a liberating, cleansing act.
Ms. Bennis, like George Soros himself, hates U.S. power. In fact, she has written a book entitled Challenging Empire: How People, Governments and the UN Defy U.S. Power and Ending the U.S. War in Afghanistan: A Primer.
The Middle East component of her New Internationalism Project
challenges the drive towards U.S. empire in that region and beyond
The United Nations component of her New Internationalism Project
analyzes U.S. domination of the UN and attempts to strengthen the potential role of the UN as part of a new internationalism and the global resistance to empire
Not even President Obama’s kowtowing to the United Nations to win popularity in the court of global opinion, his aggressive outreach to the Muslim world and his unconditional negotiations with the thugs in Iran are enough for Ms. Bennis.
This is where WikiLeaks comes in.
