Warning Americans about the dangers of “false narratives” CIA Director Mike Pompeo on Thursday compared Wikileaks to “a hostile intelligence service” in his first major addresses since being tapped by President Donald Trump to lead America’s top spy agency.

“WikiLeaks walks like a hostile intelligence service and talks like a hostile intelligence service,” Mr. Pompeo said during a speech at the Washington think tank, The Center for Strategic and International Studies. “It is like a non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by foreign governments like Russia.

Last month the rogue leaking website published thousands of documents it described as secret CIA files detailing the agency’s hacking abilities, including tools it alleged the U.S. government uses to break into computers, mobile phones and even smart TVs.

Mr. Pompeo said WikiLeaks overwhelming focuses on the U.S. and encourages people to actually join the CIA to steal intelligence. He also targeted its founder, Julian Assange, and detailed his connections to Islamic terrorist organizations.

“That Assange is nothing short of a hero to these terrorists is reprehensible,” he said. “Franky, our government has not done enough looking at this new risk.”
