I really wonder if some users on Metafilter and other sites are fed talking points to criticize Wikileaks and Assange with, because in the last thread on this issue, I read someone using the "double game" talking point well before it was used elsewhere. It ended up in on NPR later in the afternoon in an interview with a military official who was criticizing Wikileaks and Pakistan. That same "double game" phrasing only ended up in the mainstream media two or three days later, so it wasn't some term that had been regurgitated elsewhere before it ended up here. I wouldn't be surprised at all to hear there was a low-level smear campaign in place, where people are compensated for planting misinformation and viral phrasing.

Now this could be serious stuff, are there really cia agents on metafilter ? Are they allowed to double post ?
I think this is an area of policy we havent really covered yet and deserves serious discussion. If there were cia people on mefi, surely jess, matt and cortex would know - would they tell us ?
Indeed Matt may now be working for the man as we speak
- I think we should be told.
(if this thread is deleted - i will unleash an encrypted file of cortex playing kenny g covers)
