The Wikileaks movie trailer

 

I didn’t even know they were making a movie about wikileaks. But I must admit, the trailer looks really intriguing. “The Fifth Estate” is about Julian Assange, wikileak’s founder.

When wikileaks came to the surface three years ago, no one knew it would be this scandalous. WikiLeaks published secret US Military documents, covering military operations in Afghanistan and Iraq. It also covered other hot topics; such as Scientology, Henry Kissinger’s Middle East peace talks, and American profiling and investigation of foreign ambassadors to the USA.

Some of the leaks were about Kuwait, specifically covering our Interior Minister’s suggestions on how to handle Kuwaiti Guantanamo detainees [link1 & link2]. It also leaked documents that predicted the Fukushima nuclear disaster, released documents warned that Japanese nuclear plants weren’t capable of withstanding strong earthquakes [link].

The movie will be released in October, but I don’t know if it will also be released here in Kuwait. I personally am very interested in watching this movie, like I’m sure many people are too.

Unbelievable: Kuwait donates $4 Billion to Egypt

Kuwait donates 4 billion dollars to Egypt

Why do we keep on squandering our money like this?

Why are we giving Egypt money?

We decide in just one day to throw more money at them than the whole annual amount of aid the US gives them?

Why couldn’t we have used the money to settle the housing issue for 100,000 desperate and needy Kuwaiti families?

I don’t like it.

There’s no reason to lavish and waste money on Egypt, definitely not an amount this big.

We have plenty of Kuwaitis who deserve this way more than anyone else on this planet.

It’s our money, not anyone else’s.

Why can’t we keep it to ourselves and stop scattering it like trash?

Hillary Clinton finally joins Twitter

Hillary Clinton joins twitter first tweet

Check out her first tweet. So badass. “I’ll take it from here”. It’s right up there with the Terminator’s “I’ll be back”. And will you check out President Clinton’s shout out to her?! That’s pretty awesome too!

The guy and gal she’s thanking were the ones who created the hilarious Texts From Hillary on tumblr. Former US First Lady\Former Secretary of State\Former Senator got a healthy sense of humor.
