Most Disturbing Wikileaks Documents

Wikileaks have shown us that we the people don't really have our transparency. We are spied on, lied to, and sometimes forced to do things against our will.

After years of scrolling through wikileaks documents, I present you the 5 documents I found to be the most disturbing.

P.s.: Like my other video Exploring The Dark Side of the Deep Web, I'm going to make this as digital as possible, enjoy.

List of Most Disturbing Wikileaks Documents

Espionnage Élysée
Hillary’s Order
Collateral Murder
Africa’s Uranium and mineral mine rights
The 3 Big T's (TTP, TTIP and TISA)

Prefer watching a video? I got you covered!

Hey.

Do you believe transparency exist?

Or do you believe HUGE decisions are made behind closed doors?

Wikileaks have shown us that we live in a society that fakes transparency and trust.

Nations spying on their own people,
nations spying on other nations,
secrets kept from the people…

Don’t believe me?

Then let’s explore Wikileaks’ documents shall we?

5. Espionnage Élysée

In 2015, Wikileaks' documents have confirmed that the U.S. have been spying on one of its closest ally, France. Communications of France’s president have been intercepted, listened to and recorded.

The 3 presidents that were spied on were Jacques Chirac (1995–2007), Nicolas Sarkozy (2007–2012), and even Francois Hollande (2012–present).

To make matters worse, they even turned their attention to French cabinet ministers, the French ambassador to the United States, and French companies with contract or negotiation valued at more than $200 million. BNP Paribas, AXA and Credit Agricole to Peugeot and Renault, Total and Orange.

The United States then swaps the information obtained with its five eyes partners that is Canada, New Zealand, Australia and the United Kingdom.

The presidents that were spied on include, Jacques Chirac, Nicolas Sarkozy and even the current president Francois Hollande.

4. Hillary's Order

Hillary Clinton spied on U.N.

When she was the secretary of state, Hillary Clinton ordered U.S. diplomats to retrieve information of important United Nation figures.

Important information include credit card numbers, email addresses, phone, fax and pager numbers, frequent-flyer account numbers, DNA, fingerprints and even iris scans.

United Nation figures include permanent Security Council representatives of China (Liew JieYi), Russia (Vitaly Churkin), France (François Delattre) and the United Kingdom (Matthew Rycroft) and even the secretary general of the United Nation (Ban Ki-moon).

I wonder what she was planning to do with all their personal information…

3. Collateral Murder

The van after the shooting.

Wikileaks's documents has released a video showing U.S. soldiers shooting innocent civilians and journalists. The soldiers claimed that they thought the people were caring weapons, which is a somewhat acceptable reason.

But what makes this video extremely disturbing is not the shooting itself, but the attitude of the U.S. soldiers. They treated the shooting as though it was a… game. Laughing when the civilians were shot dead, driving over the dead bodies and even saying that it’s the civilians’ fault that the solders injured 2 kids.

This is a whole new level of dehumanization.

Watch the full video or the shortened version. Warning: Some viewers might find the video disturbing.

2. Africa's Uranium and Other Mining Rights

Africa's Uranium Mining Rights

Chinese and Western companies like Areva, have obtained uranium and other mining rights in the Central African Republic and escaped paying for environmental consequences.

They do this by deceiving state officers with shell companies and through bribery.

After they are done mining, the companies abandoned the country. Leaving behind them a nuclear contaminated land. And the people of Central African Republic are the ones who will suffer for the companies’ greed.

1. The 3 Big T's (TTP, TTIP and TISA)

A new global legal and economic system that was created by the United States and European Union to bypass the World Trade Organization.

What’s wrong with this new system is that most emerging economies are excluded. Countries like China, India, Russia, South Africa, Brazil, all the emerging economies are being excluded. And it's funny how th United States is included in all the T’s, that is TTP, TTIP and TISA.

The new legal system also allows companies to sue governments for anything that effects their investment, and it is happening right now.

A few examples, Vattenfall sued Germany for facing out nuclear energy, British American Tobacco sued Australia for limiting cigarette advertisements, Veolia sued Egypt for raising the minimum wage and Lone pine sued Canada for banning fracking.

Corporations will be so rich and powerful that even governments will be on their knees.

In short, the 3 big T’s will affect everything, the world's economy, health care, food safety standards, the environment, Internet privacy… EVERYTHING!The whole world will change for the worse, and all these were kept under secrecy.

Don’t you just love democracy?*with sarcastic voice*
