    In the second excerpt from the John Pilger Special, to be exclusively broadcast by RT on Saturday, courtesy of Dartmouth Films, Julian Assange accuses Hillary Clinton of misleading Americans about the true scope of Islamic State’s support from Washington’s Middle East allies.


    In a 2014 email made public by Assange’s WikiLeaks last month, Hillary Clinton, who had served as secretary of state until the year before, urges John Podesta, then an advisor to Barack Obama, to “bring pressure” on Qatar and Saudi Arabia, “which are providing clandestine financial and logistic support to ISIL [Islamic State, IS, ISIS] and other radical Sunni groups.”


    “I think this is the most significant email in the whole collection,” Assange, whose whistleblowing site released three tranches of Clinton-related emails over the past year, told Pilger in an exclusive interview, courtesy of Dartmouth Films.

    “All serious analysts know, and even the US government has agreed, that some Saudi figures have been supporting ISIS and funding ISIS, but the dodge has always been that it is some “rogue” princes using their oil money to do whatever they like, but actually the government disapproves. But that email says that it is the government of Saudi Arabia, and the government of Qatar that have been funding ISIS.”

    Assange and Pilger, who sat down for their 25-minute interview at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, where the whistleblower has been a refugee since 2012, then talk about the conflict of interest between Clinton’s official post, which held throughout Obama’s first term, her husband’s nonprofit, and the Middle East officials, whose stated desire to fight terrorism may not have been sincere.


    John Pilger: The Saudis, the Qataris, the Moroccans, the Bahrainis, particularly the first two, are giving all this money to the Clinton Foundation, while Hillary Clinton is secretary of state, and the State Department is approving massive arms sales, particularly Saudi Arabia.

    Julian Assange: Under Hillary Clinton – and the Clinton emails reveal a significant discussion of it – the biggest-ever arms deal in the world was made with Saudi Arabia: more than $80 billion. During her tenure, the total arms exports from the US doubled in dollar value.


    JP: Of course, the consequence of that is that this notorious jihadist group, called ISIL orISIS, is created largely with money from people who are giving money to the Clinton Foundation?

    JA: Yes.

    Pilger also questioned Assange over increasingly frequent accusations from the Clinton camp, and Western media, that WikiLeaks is looking to swing next week’s US presidential election in favor of Donald Trump – perhaps at Russia’s behest.

    But Assange dismissed the prospect of Trump, who is behind in the polls, winning as unlikely – and not necessarily due to his standing with the electorate.

    “My analysis is that Trump would not be permitted to win. Why do I say that? Because he has had every establishment off his side. Trump does not have one establishment, maybe with the exception of the Evangelicals, if you can call them an establishment,” said Assange. “Banks, intelligence, arms companies, foreign money, etc. are all united behind Hillary Clinton. And the media as well. Media owners, and the journalists themselves.”

    The world awaits the HRC "no fly zone" and subsequent war.

    Of course, as with Libya, this will be a cool kind of war deserving of a Nobel Peace Prize.

    I heard that Hillary has made a secret deal with the Juniptians to divide Mars between them, the Eskimos and the Galactic empire.

    And yesterday she gave nuclear technology to Lichtenstein for a schnitzel and a rim job.

    The more you learn about these people, the more you realize that if aliens actually did exist, they would not want to reveal themselves to humans and continue to visit without conversing with us.

    You know, it's getting harder and harder to say Trump is a worse candidate.

    Is humanity really this hopeless and amoral?

    I guess in a few days we will know.

    God, your insight is so spot on.
    What informs your word choice, how do you determine the exact (perfect! am I right, people?) appropriate imagery for the topics you chime in on?
    It's like you're a commentary savant!
    We are witnessing historical genius here, folks: enjoy it while you can.

    Keep in mind the muslims hillary has supported are the one that want sharia law and cut christians heads off in the street not to mention same treatment for homosexuals. The democrats would be proud if they could pull themselves away from mainstream media.

    The US is forever supporting the nastiest regimes in the world.
    They supported Saddam, Pol Pot, the Iran-contra scandal... you name it, they've had a finger in the pie-hole of hate.

    I don't know why you're so surprised a Democrat does it as well.

    Did someone actually give me a thumbs down for enjoying a good reply directed at myself?

    God damn, you're a hard audience to please!
