The founder of the transparency organization WikiLeaks released a
statement yesterday upon the release of over 500,000 diplomatic cables
dating back to 1979, which succinctly reveals how the CIA was
essentially responsible for creating the Islamic State (ISIS) terror
The timing of the release coincided with the sixth anniversary of
WikiLeaks “Cablegate” release, which exposed the machinations of the
underbelly of the U.S. empire. The latest release, known as the “Carter
Cables,” adds 531,525 new diplomatic cables to the WikiLeaks’ already
voluminous Public Library of U.S. Diplomacy (PLUSD).
In a statement released in concert with the release of the “Carter
Cables,” Julian Assange mapped out how the events of 1979 began a series
of events that have ultimately culminated in the rise of ISIS.
“If any year could be said to be the “year zero” of our modern era, 1979 is it,” said Assange.
