Irish-American Heritage Month March 2013 Official Presidential Proclamation

As one of the millions of Americans with Irish blood, I am proud to recall the struggles of my Irish ancestors to overcome the prejudice and hatred once visited upon Irish immigrants to this country.
Not unlike the struggles that many other immigrant groups are currently facing, the Irish people were often forced to leave their country because of famine and lack of opportunity in their own country.
It's time for all people to be recognized for their value and their unique contributions to world culture. No longer should hate and divisiveness caused by differences in background, heritage, skin color, ethnicity, or gender matter. We are all one. We are all related.

This post is in honor of my Irish ancestors:
The Brady's, MacBradaigh originally, which means "spirited" who came from County Cavan Ireland and gave many of their descendants red hair or, in my family's case, brunette hair with lots of red in it.
The Dunn's (originally O' Duinn), a name meaning "the dark one" either dark complexioned or dark haired, from Ulster province Ireland.
The Horner's, a name which means "one who made horn spoons" or "one who blew a horn", probably in an army.
The Wilson's, an Irish line of mine that I know little about as the last was a female who was adopted very young and knew little more than that she was Irish.
The Ruarks, originally O'Rourke, again I know little beyond the name and that they are Irish.
I have other probable Irish lines but Irish ancestry is notoriously difficult to trace and that is about all I know about these unknown Irish lines, just that they exist.
I honor you, in particular, my unnamed/unknown Irish ancestors. Just as happens now, so many immigrants lost their history and that is very sad.

President Obama officially launches Irish-American Heritage Month, 2013

Kicking off March’s St. Patrick’s Day, a celebration in a sea of green and remembering how the Irish shaped America

On Thursday evening President Barack Obama issued a proclamation officially announcing the launch of Irish-American Heritage Month, 2013. With ancestral roots in Moneygall, County Offaly, Obama referred to Ireland’s tradition of immigration to the United States, their contribution and inspiration.
The President drew to mind those immigrants who helped to shape and build America and also commented on how the tiny island of Ireland has “inspired” so many.
“For more than two centuries, America has been made and remade by striving, hopeful immigrants looking for a chance to pursue their dreams,” the President said.
“Millions among them were born in Ireland, separated from our shores but united by their belief in a better day. This month, we celebrate the Irish-American journey, and we reflect on the ways a nation so small has inspired so much in another.
“Generations of Irish left the land of their forebears to cast their fortunes with a young Republic.  Escaping the blight of famine or the burden of circumstance, many found hardship even here.  They endured prejudice and stinging ridicule. But through it all, these new citizens never gave up on one of our oldest ideas: that anyone from anywhere can write the next great chapter in the American story. So they raised families and built communities, earned a living and sent their kids to school.
“In time, what it meant to be Irish helped define what it means to be American. And as they did their part to make this country stronger, Irish Americans shared in its success, retaining the best of their heritage and passing it down to their children. That familiar story has been lived and cherished by Americans from all backgrounds, and it reaffirms our identity as a Nation of immigrants from all around the world. 
“So as we celebrate Irish-American Heritage Month, let us retell those stories of sweat and striving.  And as two nations united by people and principle, may America and Ireland always continue to move forward together in common purpose.” 

Barack Obama is himself of partial Irish descent, with ancestors coming from County Offlay, Ireland.

This is part 1 a video of Jan Michael Looking Wolf, Native American Flutist and performer, with GRAMMY winner George Noriega and guitar player Tim Yett on the main stage at the 2007 Native American Music Awards! He is playing a very special flute made by Brent Haines that allows him to actually play two flutes at one time.

Last night I was very privileged to attend a concert by Jan Michael Looking Wolf here in Oregon. Jan Michael is a Native American,  of the Kalapuya tribe, and he still lives near the tribal reservation. Jan Michael is also of Irish descent and his music reflects both his native roots and his Celtic ancestry, as well as many other influences.

The concert was a wonderful experience with a world class musician and I highly recommend his uplifting and inspiring music.
I have never endorsed any other artist on my blog, but Jan Michael Looking Wolf is one of the people inspiring others through his music, and his many good works. Enjoy and please buy one of his beautiful Cd's.  A link to his web site is below.

I was especially inspired by his message of unity with all people, or "One Heart." Jan Michael's integrity and compassion was very obvious and I can't recommend this Lightworker and his music highly enough.

In this video, Jan Michael Looking Wolf shares of the Native American Tradition of One Heart and offers beautiful wooden native flute performance. Donald Blackfox produced and edited the video.

Jan Michael's lifeway and musical expressions are based on the Native American Tradition of 'One Heart'. In short, it is a truth that we are equal regardless of the color of our skin, tribal affiliation, language we speak, income, gender, faith, nationality or personal beliefs. 'One Heart' is the recognition of Unity through Diversity. His music carries a message of HOPE for our children and oneness for humanity. Jan Michael frequently performs at non-profit events nation wide and his music has been used for several non-profit projects.

Dr Joe Vitale Ho'oponopono 15 Minute Miracle

Karen Nauman - - "I have found that combining EFT Tapping and the ancient Hawaiian energy practice called Ho'oponopono, is very powerful!" 

If you are open and willing to practice these simple steps, you will discover that this method works wonders with confounding or complex cases, and especially for those who seem resistant to helping themselves.

It is an helpful (and entertaining) video to watch this first before reading on. At the beginning there is some awesome (although, not 'Ho'op') info. that Joe shares about setting goals and limiting (or as he calls them, 'counter') beliefs. I think he's a VERY cool, leading edge guy!

Ho'oponopono Interview With Dr. Hew Len

Interview of Dr Hew Len with Rita Montgomery and Dr Rick Moss. Data is what is running us. It is at the root of what we experience. Change that within yourself and the outer world changes. Most of the time we are using dead information

Ho' oponopono Cleansing Memories Within

As you watch this video you can focus on any problem, issue, relationship or concern and the healing Ho'oponopono images will assist you in letting go of the memories that created the problem memory. Feel the peace of the words and music take you to the clear zero state of freedom, free from being run by past memories and beliefs. A lot of the images are ho'oponopono cleaning tools that you can eat or have around you. You can simply listen to the recording on its own to receive the cleaning via this also.

The War on Consciousness Graham Hancock

Graham Hancock tells the story of his 24-year relationship with cannabis brought to an abrupt halt in 2011 after an encounter with ayahuasca, the sacred visionary brew of the Amazon. Along the way he explores the mystery of death, the problem of consciousness, and the implications for the human future of a society that wages total war on true cognitive liberty.

Graham Hancock is the author of The Sign and the Seal, Fingerprints of the Gods, Keeper of Genesis, Heaven's Mirror, Supernatural and other bestselling investigations of historical mysteries.

His books have been translated into twenty-seven languages and have sold over five million copies worldwide. His public lectures and broadcasts, including two major TV series, Quest for the Lost Civilisation, and Flooded Kingdoms of the Ice Age, have further established his reputation as an unconventional thinker who raises controversial questions about humanity's past. Hancock's first venture into fiction, Entangled, was published in 2010 and his second novel, War God, on the Spanish Conquest of Mexico, will be published on 30 May 2013. Hancock maintains an active Facebook presence: His website is:

Lightning Strikes the Vatican a Geo-Synchronicity?

This article comes from David Wilcock of Divine Cosmos

Lightening Strikes the Vatican a Geo-Synchronicity?

On the same day Pope Benedict resigned, lightning struck the Vatican. This was a powerful geo-synchronicity event -- easy to understand, and with profound implications -- once you see it in context.

Although the changes still seem to be moving at glacially-slow speeds, we are continuing to see signs of very positive developments.
This doesn't surprise me -- as we live in a conscious, living universe. The Source Field Investigations is where I made my case.
I am working non-stop to finish the first draft of the sequel right now -- but I had to stop for a minute to report on these incredible developments.
Human life is not an anomaly reserved to one planet. The universe is literally teeming with life -- everywhere and anywhere it can grow.
Once this becomes known and accepted on a widespread level, it is arguably going to be the biggest shift in perspective in our own recorded history.
DNA is written into the laws of quantum mechanics. There is enough scientific proof that this has now become an indisputable fact.
I first became aware of this concept of energetic DNA-forming waves when I found the Law of One material in 1996 -- and it utterly changed my life.
Now that I am cranking on my new book deadline, and very close to the finish line, I am highly immersed in the Law of One material again -- and it feels great.
The Law of One philosophy lets us know that all is well. The things that are happening on earth are part of a grand illusion that is intended to help us all grow into more loving and honorable people.
The signs continue to get more and more interesting, and provocative, telling us big stuff is coming soon.
Recently we had another geo-synchronicity -- a manifestation of synchronicity on a worldwide scale. This one was a lot bigger than the Super Bowl blackout.
It seems appropriate that this article happens to be the 1,111th piece of content we've posted to Divine Cosmos -- if you look at the link.
Lightning struck the Vatican on the same day that Pope Benedict spontaneously resigned.
Considering how decrepit Pope John Paul II looked in the final years of his life, no one believed this was actually due to health reasons. And then lightning struck.
The media is openly tracking the story -- and sees that we are not being told the truth.
In fact, it is being openly discussed that a "secret gay group" has been running the show -- with murderous effectiveness.
I guess that's one way to describe the Cabal. Fair enough.
Pope Benedict Resigned Partly Because of Secret Gay Group
Was the pope under the influence of a secretive "gay lobby" within the Vatican itself?
That's the claim put forth by Italian daily newspaper La Repubblica.
On Thursday, the popular paper published an article alleging that Pope Benedict XVI's decision to resign this month was partly prompted by a report that accused Vatican officials of being under the influence of several internal lobbies, reportedly including a gay one.
The Irish Times reports that Benedict commissioned the report after the Vatileaks scandal broke last year. The report, written by a trio of cardinals, concluded that "various lobbies within the Holy See were consistently breaking" the sixth and seventh commandments, "thou shalt not commit adultery" and "thou shalt not steal."
(The sixth commandment referencing adultery has historically been tied to the Catholic Church's doctrine banning homosexuality.)….
Scandalous revelations involving the Vatican and gay sex have been published by La Repubblica before. In 2010, the newspaper revealed wiretaps and police documents that showed a Vatican chorister and an elite papal usherhad been involved with a gay prostitutes ring. Both men were dismissed from their duties, the Telegraph notes.
La Repubblica's allegations are only the latest in a string of theories relating to the pope's sudden departure,which has prompted rampant speculation.
Benedict himself has further confused matters with his Ash Wednesday homily, in which he referenced vague internal "divisions."
“I am thinking in particular of the sins against the unity of the church, of the divisions in the body of the church," Benedict said, according to the Washington Post.
It was quite stunning to see this huge lightning bolt strike the Vatican on the same day.
And... someone was there to photograph it, in the ideal location, right as it happened.
Furthermore, it didn't strike "just any old place."
It hit the literal equivalent of the eye at the top of the triangle.
In this case, that would be the very peak of the main dome of the main building in the Vatican -- namely St. Peter's.
In Law of One terms, lightning is one of the "archetypes" in the mind of the Galaxy -- which is called the Logos.
Even mainstream media had to question whether this was "a sign from God" -- as we see in the above Daily Mail caption.
When seen in full context, this event is extremely, extremely interesting.
On the very same day that The Source Field Investigations came out -- August 23, 2011 -- the entire East Coast of the United States shook with a very strange 5.5 earthquake.
People all over the East Coast felt a sickening, churning movement of the ground under their feet -- causing widespread fear and concern.
This same earthquake literally cracked the capstone of the Washington Monument -- right where the All-Seeing Eye would be.
Insider sources revealed that the black-ops world had been thrown into a total panic -- once we understand what caused the earthquake.
On this very day, they found out -- once and for all -- that their underground bases were NOT safe havens of refuge.
These bases were originally built so they could hide out underground after nuking the surface of the earth -- to reduce population, which has long been one of their main goals.
The two most important bases -- the classic Denver Airport base as well as the one right near DC, called "Crystal City" -- in which all top politicians had lavish facilities ready to flee to at a moment's notice -- were spontaneously destroyed.
In the case of Crystal City, the destructive force was so powerful that the entire East Coast shook.
I first wrote this up in September 2011. Then a host of other bases were destroyed soon afterwards -- and this triggered a comprehensive follow-up article.
Disclosure Imminent? Two Underground NWO Bases Destroyed
Disclosure Imminent? Part II -- Many More Bases Destroyed
I was profoundly inspired by these events. I knew my insiders well enough to be clear that these events really did happen. It was an incredible intervention by higher forces that seemed to have our best interests at heart.
Only three months after these bases were destroyed, I got drawn into the Financial Tyranny investigation -- thanks to extensive dream guidance encouraging me to pursue it.
Additionally, the underground base destructions were bigger and more dramatic examples of an apparent battle between positive ET humans and the Cabal that had already become publicly visible the year before.
A massive string of bizarre EMP-type equipment failures occurred -- beginning right AFTER the date where I had been told, in advance, that a positive faction in China had delivered an ultimatum to the Cabal.
For this same reason I titled the series "China's October Surprise." All of this is critically valuable context.
The Super Bowl blackout I wrote about in the previous update was a perfect continuation of this type of strategy.
Disclosure, "The Event" and China's October Surprise -- Part I
China's October Surprise Part II: Earth's Quarantine Has Lifted
China's October Surprise Part III: The Fight for Disclosure
China's October Surprise Part IV: Live Radio Show
So again, the Washington Monument capstone cracked on the same day that they lost Crystal City -- their best place of refuge if they ever created a huge disaster.
Insider testimony has since revealed that a total of at least 28 bases have been wiped out. Each of these bases could hold 65,000 personnel -- or more.
Apparently the method of destruction was perfected so that earthquakes did not continue to happen -- or were only minimal.
In each case, staff and equipment were "portaled" out in advance, to an unknown location. No radioactivity was used. The air pressure inside the base would suddenly, massively increase, causing everything to break apart inside.
The damage is so extensive, in each of these cases, that rebuilding is literally the equivalent of starting over from scratch -- and the Cabal is now out of money, thanks to a focused, worldwide resistance effort. 
Unfortunately, we don't know the exact number of bases this has happened to -- because the flow of information completely dried up as of early spring 2012.
Nonetheless, the cracking of the capstone of the Washington Monument was a very intriguing geo-synchronicity.
Once I heard what all the top insiders were telling me, I realized that this crack was not an accident -- it was by design.
I dramatized this event with a Photoshopped image of lightning striking the monument -- and put it out beginning on September 16, 2011.
I had no idea, at the time, that this would have a real-world counterpart -- on the capstone of the Vatican.
And not just any day -- but the very day that Pope Benedict suddenly and mysteriously resigned.
The 22-part Major Arcana of the Tarot apparently goes back to Atlantean times, and was given to us by ETs to reveal the patterns of the mind we all share.
Each card represents a cluster of experiences that we all go through -- and we must go through -- as evolving souls.
Lightning is one of the 22 archetypes. In modern form it is the Lightning-Struck Tower, Tower of Destruction or just "The Tower."
If you're doing a Tarot spread for yourself, you really don't want to see The Tower come up. It's arguably the most intense and difficult card that can appear.
The lightning represents Divine energy coming into physical manifestation.
This Divine energy manifests, seemingly out of nowhere, to collapse the towers of materialism that we build.
The king and queen you see plunging to their deaths in the card were negative, Cabal-type dictators.
This archetype means that ALL efforts to enslave humanity must ultimately be destroyed -- by direct, blatant Divine Intervention.
I saw this same symbol happen with the Washington Monument capstone event -- even though no literal lightning struck.
The fact that this occurred on the same day we released The Source Field Investigations -- which was a treasure-chest of planet-healing science suppressed by the Cabal -- was very interesting.
Now we've had this Vatican event -- where the lightning was quite literal, not metaphorical.
I have heard from insiders that Anonymous is not just a bunch of kids. The alliance of nations I've been speaking to you about -- now over 150 in total -- is providing direct support.
This includes patriotic aspects of the US military.
Computer hacking has become a mission-critical aspect of their oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.
As you may remember, Anonymous recently hacked the Federal Reserve -- and released all kinds of secure information. There is apparently much more data where that came from. 
Furthermore, hacking has completely wiped out Cabal bank accounts -- leaving them without money, in free fall.
The insider chatter is that Anonymous presented the Vatican with similarly damning information. It was literally the "offer you cannot refuse."
Had this offer not been taken, unbelievably damaging information would have been made public -- including video.
What we are seeing, in short, is a gradual process of change. Everything is being done slowly, so as not to upset the public too much.
However, the symbol of lightning -- once seen in context -- is a powerful indication that Benedict's resignation is a very positive event.
Freedom may seem impossible. The challenge may seem far too great.
However, freedom is also a choice -- and it begins in your daily life. We can choose love, laughter, joy and good cheer. We need not live in fear.
The new physics tells us that the more we do this in our own lives, the more quickly the world will follow.
Over 50 documented scientific studies have been conducted on the Meditation Effect -- in which 7000 people meditating reduced world terrorism by 72 percent.
Even so, that's just the beginning.
The science is real -- and this latest geo-synchronicity is a very compelling intervention into our "consensus reality". It is a harbinger of much greater positive events to follow.
The world we are heading into is so fantastic that most people's imagination is not even capable of envisioning it.
Graham Hancock gave a fascinating TEDx talk recently -- and it's already had over 77,000 views on YouTube.
"The War on Consciousness" is a frontal attack against the Cabal -- and well worth the time to watch.
Graham discusses new physics theories of consciousness, the connection to indigenous cultures, and the ease with which corruption could be solved.
For example, the entire problem with the loss of the Amazon rain forest could be solved -- forever -- by six months' worth of the Iraq war budget.
If this video gets enough traffic (i.e. if you watch it!) then it may appear on the main TED website -- which could help awaken a lot more people.
Additionally, I have now signed on to do a full-length presentation at the Project Camelot conference focusing on time travel.
This will happen on the weekend of April 5th -- at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Glendale, California, near the Burbank airport just outside LA county.
The legendary Montauk Project duo, Preston Nichols and Peter Moon, will be there -- along with David Anderson, Anthony Sanchez, George Green and Sean David Morton.
Just as of earlier today, I got an email confirming that Henry Deacon -- the most highly-positioned insider ever to come forward and reveal his identity to the public -- will be there as well.
Henry Deacon worked in the "breakaway civilization", interacted with over 40 types of human ETs, and used stargate travel from underground bases as a part of his daily job, working off-planet.
I spent well over 80 hours on the phone with this man and barely even started to access all the intel he had encountered in his many different jobs -- at the highest levels of compartmentalization.
He has remained underground for many years, only surfacing at the Zurich conference. Now he's ready to say more -- and I am very glad.

This is truly an industrial-sized freak-fest -- hundreds of vendor booths, many top speakers, and thousands of people coming and going throughout the weekend.
It's truly epic -- great food, great speakers, lots of networking opportunities, and quite a wild ride. I've done it three times before and it has always been an amazing journey.
This time I'm doing two lectures, a panel and a workshop. It also happens to be the least expensive event I do each year, making it easily accessible.
The website hasn't been updated yet, as we're still sorting out the final details -- but I will be there.
We've had a sudden pick-up in interest for the all-weekend Houston Convergence as well -- on the weekend of March 15-17th at the elegant Sheraton North Houston Hotel.
This is truly our premier conference experience -- a non-stop 16-hour tour-de-force of the latest, greatest information, including a VIP meet-and-greet on Sunday where every participant gets to speak with me personally.
If you've read The Source Field Investigations or are a regular of this website, nothing can compare to the experience of a full weekend like this.
At my last conference I literally had over 1,400 slides in the presentation -- and it just keeps getting better and better.
Since I did NOT sell out to the Cabal, we still need your support to keep this work, and the five employees who support it, alive -- so I strongly appreciate your help by attending our events.
There are some great surprises ahead... but I will save that until I'm cleared to speak about them.
As you know, we've been working on the CONVERGENCE film, bringing it up to the point where we can get it financed and produced, for many years now.
Jim Hart, who has worked with many top directors including Steven Spielberg and Francis Ford Coppola, is writing the film with his partner Amanda Welles, and yours truly as story advisor.
Jim feels this is his best and most enjoyable script since CONTACT -- and it also provides a delivery vehicle for this new science to reach the world in an entertaining way.
We have been quietly working with a very significant, non-Cabal entertainment conglomerate to get this going -- the same with the Source Field television series.
They suggested rewrites that we all voted and agreed on. Finally, those rewrites are almost finished. Within weeks we will have our script.
Things are very exciting on this front, as this could be one of the most dynamic and engaging sci-fi / ancient mysteries films to come out in years. I am amazed at how much it has evolved.
Patience has admittedly been very difficult -- but now that I'm seeing it come together it all seems worth it.
Bear in mind it will still take a year to emerge once we get financed -- but the company we're working with can attach A-list actors and directors to our show.
Furthermore, Jim has had a huge career break recently on a project that has not yet been publicly announced, but will very soon -- with arguably the top CG character actor in film from the last ten-odd years.
The timing of this is all very synchronistic -- as once this film is announced, there will be a sudden spike in demand for other scripts Jim has written.
This effort has been financed almost entirely out-of-pocket on my side -- and I am really looking forward to seeing all this time and effort turn into a great movie.
In addition to the Source Field television series, which will be for network distribution, I'm also starting another television series with an Internet-based media company -- which will be called Wisdom Teachings.
In fact, our first tapings are this coming Monday and Tuesday.
This will be a weekly half-hour show. You will see a new episode every week, all year -- as part of a much bigger collection of thousands of exclusive spiritual, metaphysical and health/fitness titles that are all available for instant, high-definition web streaming access.
It's like the metaphysical Netflix -- the only one of its kind out there, really -- and you will be able to watch my weekly show every Monday, and all others, for 9.99 a month.
We are not going to formally announce the show, with links, until the first episodes are ready -- but hopefully this will only take about a month, so be on the lookout for that as well!
I'm really excited about these developments. Time for more video, more multimedia and more content -- to break out of the "Internet Ghetto," as Richard C. Hoagland once called it!
It's a lot to juggle right now, believe me, but the book is almost done and I'm very relieved. I've never worked this hard in my life, but I am doing it because see freedom on the horizon -- and this is a very exciting time to be alive.
I thank you for your support in this mission. Without you, we wouldn't be here! It seems like the speed of everything is really picking up -- and when we stay in the flow, wonders follow.
I do very much look forward to true freedom coming to this planet. The power of this shift will be tremendous -- and honestly, as I said, most people literally cannot imagine what our society will look like in just a few years' time.
We can co-create this change. Spreading the word, learning to treat others with love, acceptance and forgiveness, and bravely stepping up to do our part... it's all part of the great dance of life.
You don't have to sit back and wait for it. The most powerful gateway to the universe you have is the present.
All the work of so many lifetimes is ultimately completed in a single instant -- and you can choose whenever that will be.

Bradley Manning: I Did it to Make the World a Better Place

Bradley Manning: I Did It to Make the World a Better Place

Stephen: In pleading guilty to 10 charges of misusing classified material, Bradley Manning says he intended to spark a debate on U.S. foreign policy. But the soldier pleads not guilty to 12 far more serious charges, including aiding the enemy and multiple counts of violating the US Espionage Act.
By Charlie Savage of the New York Times – March 1, 2013
I believed if the public … had access to the information this could spark a debate about foreign policy in relation to Iraq and Afghanistan.
FORT MEADE, Maryland: Bradley Manning has confessed in open court to providing vast archives of military and diplomatic files to the antisecrecy group WikiLeaks, saying he wanted the information to become public “to make the world a better place”.
Appearing before a military judge for more than an hour on Thursday, Private Manning read a statement recounting how he joined the military, became an intelligence analyst in Iraq, decided that certain documents should become known to the American public to prompt a wider debate about the Iraq War, and ultimately uploaded them to WikiLeaks.

“No one associated with WLO” – an abbreviation he used to refer to the WikiLeaks organisation – “pressured me into sending any more information,” Private Manning said. “I take full responsibility.”
Before reading the statement, he pleaded guilty to 10 criminal counts in connection with the leak, which included videos of airstrikes in Iraq and Afghanistan in which civilians were killed, logs of military incident reports, assessment files of detainees held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and 250,000 diplomatic cables.
The guilty pleas exposed him to up to 20 years in prison. But the case against the slightly built, bespectacled 25-year-old – who has become a folk hero among antiwar and whistleblower advocacy groups – is not over.
The military has charged him with a much more serious set of offences, including aiding the enemy and multiple counts of violating the Espionage Act, and prosecutors now have the option to press forward with proving the remaining elements of the more serious charges.
That would involve focusing only on questions such as whether the information he provided counted as the sort covered by the Espionage Act – that is, whether it is “national defence information” that could be used to injure the United States or aid a foreign nation.
In a riveting personal history, Private Manning portrayed himself as thinking carefully about the categories of information he was divulging, excluding the sort that would harm the United States. He said he was initially concerned about diplomatic cables in particular, but after doing research learned that the most sensitive ones were not placed into the database to which he had access, and he concluded that those might prove “embarrassing” but would not cause harm.
Private Manning said the first set of documents he decided to release were hundreds of thousands of military incident reports from Afghanistan and Iraq that he had initially downloaded onto a disk because he needed them for his work, and the computer network connection kept going down. The reports, he decided, showed the flaws in the counterinsurgency policy the United States was then pursuing in both war zones.
The military, he said, had become “obsessed with capturing or killing” people on a list while ignoring what the operations were doing to ordinary people in the two nations. The reports, he said, were not sensitive because they recounted events that were long over.
“I believed if the public – in particular the American public – had access to the information” in the reports, “this could spark a debate about foreign policy in relation to Iraq and Afghanistan”, he said.
Private Manning said he brought the disks home when he went on leave in early 2010 and initially decided to give them to a newspaper.
He said he first called The Washington Post and spoke to a reporter for about five minutes, without going into detail about what he had. He said he decided that the reporter did not seem particularly interested because she said the Post would have to review the material first and a senior editor would make the call.
He said he then tried to reach out to The New York Times by calling a phone number for the public editor, an ombudsman who is not part of the newsroom. An automatic answering service routed him to voicemail, and he left a message that no one returned, he said. He also considered visiting the offices of Politico but was deterred by a snowstorm.
Eventually, Private Manning said, he decided to release the information by uploading it to WikiLeaks. He later sent several other batches of documents and files to the organisation from his computer in Iraq, while striking up an online chatroom relationship with someone he said he assumed was a senior figure in the group such as Julian Assange, whose name he mispronounced as “as-SAHN-JAY.”
Private Manning said he came to greatly value his online conversations with the WikiLeaks person because he felt isolated in Iraq, where he lacked close relationships with his fellow soldiers. For instance, he said, “I lacked a close relationship with my roommate due to his discomfort” with Private Manning’s homosexuality.
But while he “enjoyed the ability to discuss pretty much anything” with the WikiLeaks person, whom he decided to refer to by a pseudonym taken from the author of a book he had read, “in retrospect I realised these conversations were artificial and meant more to me” than to the WikiLeaks person.
He did not elaborate. Nor did he discuss his later online conversations with Adrian Lamo, the former computer hacker who alerted the federal government to the leak.
