UK Official Makes Stunning Announcement: “I Met With Source of Leaks, It’s Not Russia”

December 11, 2016 | WASHINGTON, DC

“It’s bullshit.”

Those are the words Craig Murray used to describe the current state of mainstream media. He is referring to the media’s wild claim that a shadowy cabal of “Russian hackers” tampered with US elections.

Craig Murray is a former UK ambassador with a sterling track record of exposing human rights abuses and corruption.

Murray helped to actively oppose war crimes and torture during the illegal invasion of Iraq, and spoke outside the Ecuadorian embassy in London in support of Julian Assange and whistleblowers around the world.

The media — owned by a small handful of private corporations — has been trying to convince the American population that “Russian hackers are threatening democracy.” Of course it is the same media that told us “weapons of mass destruction in Iraq” were also threatening democracy.

In a stunning interview, Murray says the corporate media is “absolutely making it up.”

“It’s bullshit,” he said over the weekend, adding “I know who leaked them.“


He is referring to the emails from John Podesta and Hillary Clinton’s private server in which corruption and talk of child sex trafficking was observed.

“I’ve met the person who leaked them, and they are certainly not Russian. It’s an insider.”

Murray’s announcement confirms the FBI’s findings as well.  After careful investigation, the FBI found no evidence that “Russian hackers” were to blame.

The allegations of Russian hackers leaking the emails are “fuzzy and ambiguous,” according to the FBI.


Julian Assange has also hinted that the leaks came from either a patriot within the US intelligence community or possibly a DNC staffer named Seth Rich, who was found murdered around the time of the leaks.

So who is telling the truth? The corporate media? Or Craig Murray, FBI insiders, and Wikileaks?

To answer this question in an intellectually responsible manner, we have to consider some crucial data points as part of our background knowledge:

As of 2011 virtually all of the media we receive was under the control of just six corporations.

The same media has a documented and proven track record of consistently deceiving the public.

Wikileaks has a 100% accuracy rate.

Wikileaks has criticized human rights abuses in Russia for quite some time, which contradicts the wild claim that they are helping Russia.

A third-party service via Google was used to authenticate the emails leaked by Wikileaks, confirming that the content within the emails is veridical.

For these reasons alone, it is rational to give prima facie credence to Wikileaks instead of the corporate media.

Our assessment: Craig Murray and Wikileaks are probably telling the truth, and the media is almost certainly bullshitting.

Recent studies have shown that less than one in three Americans trust the corporate #BullshitMedia, so perhaps its recent weasel words like “fake news” and “Russian hackers” indicate its own panic and desperation.


But leave all of that aside, because there is a further point that puts the whole matter to rest and it is this: the source of the leaks is logically orthogonal to the content within the leaks.

Consider some make believe world, for example, in which a savvy anarchist from Italy hacked the emails and used a Russian IP address to cover her tracks. It would still be true that the criminality expressed in the emails actually did occur.

Corruption is corruption, it doesn’t matter if a secret society of Eskimo hackers happened to reveal it.  To dismiss what is known to be true solely on the basis of the messenger conveying that truth is patently fallacious.

If you want to guard yourself against deception we recommend shutting off #BullshitMedia completely and checking into things for yourself. In short: study everything, join nothing.

A philosopher explains what this means:

“Study everything, join nothing” means that one ought to beware of institutions and organizations with their tendency toward self-corruption and the corruption of their members…. “Join nothing” means avoid group-think; avoid associations which will limit one’s ability to think critically and independently; be your own man or woman; draw your identity from your own resources, and not from group membership.

This infographic explains how #BullshitMedia is owned by a relatively small handful of corporate interests that are often contrary to the will of the people. And this was as of 2011 — the consolidation of power is likely worse now.
