Hypocrite: CIA Director Who Delighted in Wikileaks DNC Release Threatens Julian Assange

from The Daily Bell:

The CIA should be thanking Wikileaks for revealing vulnerabilities in their department. If you run the supposedly best, most expansive and powerful spying agency in the world, shouldn’t you be able to stop leaks revealing your secret hacking tools?

But instead CIA Director Mike Pompeo threw a hissy fit Thursday and called Julian Assange “a fraud–a coward hiding behind a screen.”

Pompeo said, “Assange is a narcissist who has created nothing of value.”

But this is actually an interesting turn around for Pompeo. Last July Pompeo sent out a tweet, which has since been deleted, that gloated over the proof released by Wikileaks of corruption at the Democratic National Committee. He seemed to find their information valuable.

So Pompeo apparently enjoyed Wikileaks when it was publishing information that helped him and hurt his political opponents. The organization basically helped elevate him to his current position by damaging the image of the Democrats before the election. But now that he has the power, he certainly doesn’t want to be held accountable!

Pompeo even went so far in his speech to criticize the Wikileaks release of the hacked DNC emails about which he once gleefully tweeted! Did he think deleting the tweet scrubbed it from the internet?

Since Wikileaks has revealed the inability of the CIA to keep their information under wraps, Assange doesn’t rub him the right way anymore.

Pompeo claims that Julian Assange and Edward Snowden only leaked documents to make a name for themselves, seeking to “make a splash” at the expense of national security.

Pompeo even suggested that free speech has limits.
