Wikileaks Does it Again!

This time, there will be serious and long lasting diplomatic damage.
This Assange bloke needs to go for a long sleep in the desert.

The London-based newspaper Al Hayat reported Thursday that the documents show that the Turkish government allowed money and weapons to flow across the border into Iraq in support of Al Qaeda forces there.
Diplomats will be earning their pay.

Did they catch the tout who leaked the second lot of files? If so why would you even risk giving the files to wikileaks if the prospect is a treason charge and a long time looking at 4 walls made of concrete.

I'm interested as to why wikileaks seems to devote it's time to leaking sensitive US documents only, surely there must be plenty of chinese/russian/korean whistleblowers willing to rock the boat? I assume Assange isn't interested since a leak of that nature would give him very little publicity.

Most of the Russian ones are now dead.....

I believe one Russian leaker of secrets was executed in front of his mates in a rather unpleasant fashion pour encourage les autres.

Got to say I am looking forward to it. I found the previous ones very interesting, and as someone interested in history (Iraq now thankfully falls into that category) its gold.

The governments initially claimed that it would have knock-on effects to operations in Iraq and Afghanistan but they were forced to retract that statement when it was proven to be false. That was my only real concern with the previous leaks and seeing as it was proven to be a false concern I see no problem with them.

Hm. When exactly was this "proven to be false?"

It'll be no coincidence then that Julian Assange is currently under investigation for sexual assault.
So you saying that a due process isnt to be done, after an allegation,because he's someone in the limelight then, guess we should never think that celebs are guilty of anything eh !

Leaked War Files Expose Identities of Afghan Informants - FoxNews.com

The Pentagon claimed that a preliminary review of the thousands of secret reports released by WikiLeaks showed that they posed no immediate threat to U.S. forces

And thats coming from Fox who were portraying Arsanage as the devil incarnate....




If anything the leaks played against the Taliban as they highlighted how much larger the number of Taliban-caused civilian deaths is and proved Taliban exaggerations of ISAF caused deaths to be false. They were probably more pissed of then our governments. Of course our media focused on ISAF caused civilian deaths but thats to be expected.

Bit about Wikileaks here:

About Wikileaks

Mainly, but not all US/Western focussed.

The initiative probably would have fizzled before the Iraq War. 50% of this is down to the enormity of the WMD (etc) deceit and the human cost. And what idiot let someone download SIPRnet content onto a USB or a load of CDs?

Having worked in the DIS, I'm a firm believer in the STFU principle.

I'm not sure that any of this actually helps, apart from wasting staff time and getting everyone excited.

Why isn't Assange dead yet? Seriously, secret services of the West, what good are you if you can't clobber one scurrilous slimy ratbag of an enemy agent like him? I'm sure that you have very talented people in your employ, you can surely fake a heroin overdose or a slip on the soap when getting out of the shower, all nice and deniable. Even if you had to resort to speeding past on a motorbike and brassing him up with an Uzi what's Sweden, of all countries, going to do about it? Form a committee on promoting sexual equality in the chairmaking industry? Threaten to release another ABBA album?

Rumours about this evening HMG has slapped 'D Notices' out reference these wikileaks disclosures.
More on the Guido Fawkes site (the BBC won't report it).

As for him being bumped off seems he has taken out some life insurance straight from a James Bond novel

U.S. warns Britain and allies to expect another embarrassing WikiLeaks expose 'within days' | Mail Online

'WikiLeaks is urging the public to download a mysterious ‘insurance’ file said to contain information to be released if Julian Assange is killed.

In a Twitter post today the whistleblowing service published a link to the Pirate Bay file sharing site with the comment: 'Now is a good time to download some ‘history insurance’.
Expose: Wikileaks reported on its Twitter page that U.S. allies are being warned

The giant file, nearly 2GB in size, is said to contain thousands of secret U.S. documents aimed at embarrassing the nation’s government, and potentially causing harm to the United States’ relations with allies.

The file has been around since this summer and is heavily encrypted.

In the event of Mr Assange’s death (or some other unspecified reason), the secret key would be released — exposing the documents to all who have downloaded and obtained the key.

It is uncertain why Wikileaks is now urging users to download the file, but it just may be that they’re planning to release the key soon.'

The same sort of techno-clever people that send Sgt Slingsby Viagra offers.

They can do it, and I'm sure the technology is very clever.

The morality behind it all is a different issue.
