In celebration of the release of Chelsea Manning today, we share our original work of the cables of the US State Department.
With some time on my hands, after being censored as a mainstream journalist, I spent six months reading and writing about these cables.
These cables revealed Hillary Clinton as head of the US State Department, spied on Mohawks, Mapuche, Presidents Evo Morales and Hugo Chavez, and more during the Obama Administration.
The murderous campaign of the US included a new mining coalition of five countries to push mining in Peru as Indigenous lay dying defending their lands.
Clinton also demanded that US Ambassadors get secret DNA samples from foreign diplomats in Africa and Paraguay.
The United States secret government targeting Indigenous Peoples, and people of color, was exposed.
The U.S. secret government -- where corporations and wealth take precedence over human life -- was spread out for the world to see.
In a democracy, truth telling should never be a crime.
The error was not in the publication of these cables -- but in the United States secret shadow government which prevents the people from knowing the truth, and deploys its lies and deceptions in its false self portrait to the world.
