Now that Trump is so concerned about who to arrest for leaking, we all get to submit our best guess.  There maybe should be a lottery.  Any way my guess would be "The Russians".   Maybe Trump should ask his good buddy Putin to cough up the leakers.

This article was published in Folha de São Paulo, Brazil's largest circulation newspaper, on April 20, 2013. The English version appears below.

Recent events indicate that the Obama administration has stepped up its strategy of “regime change” against the left-of-center governments in Latin America, promoting conflict in ways not seen since the military coup that Washington supported in Venezuela in 2002. The most high-profile example is in Venezuela itself, during the past week. As this goes to press, Washington has grown increasingly isolated in its efforts to destabilize the newly elected government of Nicolas Maduro.

Foundation fellows and diplomats have lauded the overwhelming approval of the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) by the General Assembly of the United Nations, with UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon describing it as a means to obstruct the illicit arms flow to warlords, pirates, terrorists, criminals and the like. Many who have critically monitored the situation in Syria and the ramifications of foreign intervention in Libya may have difficulty swallowing Ban’s words, as some would argue that the UN has itself been complicit in these crises for turning a blind eye to arms and funding going to al-Qaeda-linked rebels in various countries. Twenty-three countries abstained from the vote (representing half the world’s population), including Russia, China, India, Cuba, Bolivia, Nicaragua and Egypt, while three – Syria, Iran, and North Korea – voted no. Iran’s Deputy Permanent Representative to the UN Gholam-Hossein Dehqani called the treaty a political document disguised as an Arms Trade Treaty, and with highly legitimate reasons for doing so.

The British security firm G4S is set to rake in massive profits thanks to crises in Mali, Libya and Algeria. Recognized as the world’s biggest security firm, the group’s brand plummeted during the London Olympics last year due to its failure to satisfy conditions of a government contract. But with growing unrest in North and West Africa, G4S is expected to make a speedy recovery.

The G8/g20 aftermath:Who are the real thugs
Joan Russow – Global Compliance Ressearch Project

The G8 and The G20 countries account for most of the nuclear weapons. for most of the 1.7 trillion global military budget, for most of the greenhouse gas emissions, and for most of the exploitation of the poor, and disenfranchised
The Communiqué from the G8 was nothing more than a reaffirmation of their long held militarism and the Communiqué from the G20 was nothing more than industrial competitive  global  trade dribble

The G8/G20  strut and fret their days upon the stage,. A tale
full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

And at what cost and for what violation of civil and political rights

Bush's Brain Karl Rove Thinks Torture Is Good

Karl Rove has caused a storm of protest by saying that he is proud of waterboarding and other “enhanced interrogation techniques” used on prisoners by the US and internationally condemned as torture.   According to Rove torture is good and it seems international law and human rights don't matter.   This was the man who was the Bush administration's public relations advisor and often called "Bushes Brain"
