If you read the Cablegate cable, you will see that the US doesn't sound like it planned the Egyptian revolt but worked with some people who were determined to try. I say the CIA was simply hedging its bet. They do that all the time. In their business, they'd be idiots not to.
It sounds more like Webster's making it up as he goes along.
This is from the cable Webster's relying upon (Note the term "unrealistic"):
Comment: xxxxxxxxxxxx offered no roadmap of concrete steps toward April 6's highly unrealistic goal of replacing the current regime with a parliamentary democracy prior to the 2011 presidential elections. Most opposition parties and independent NGOs work toward achieving tangible, incremental reform within the current political context, even if they may be pessimistic about their chances of success. xxxxxxxxxxxx wholesale rejection of such an approach places him outside this mainstream of opposition politicians and activists.
Webster Tarpley thinks WikiLeaks is a fake, yet here he is relying upon a Cablegate cable and getting that wrong to boot.
The whole anti-Julian Assange clique over at Veterans Today is really sinking, sinking, sinking. They are all incestuously sharing their false premises — building upon their fellow's errors.
Recently, it appears InfoWars.com and Alex Jones has climbed on their bandwagon. One of his top writers, Kurt Nimmo, has said it's a sure thing that Julian Assange is a useful idiot of the CIA, etc., all because Julian isn't yet on the 9/11 Truth bandwagon with Alex and Kurt it seems. Read the comments there. They are very telling. The site has undergone a huge shift lately. The comments used to be loaded with stuff from near illiterates. Jones is trying to be taken more seriously; however, if he goes down the Gordon Duff (Veterans Today) route, he'll fail at it.
9/11-Truth is not a proper litmus test. People are still too in the dark on it in spite of the fact that 9/11 Truth has been around so long. Some people just don't know enough to look into it. They have been conditioned not to look at anything that questions certain governments on that level.
