WikiLeaks: Anonymity is Imperative

mass media /
The Aussie founder of WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, is now paying the price for breaking a cardinal rule of all digital warriors, ANONYMITY!
According to a questionable report from the The Daily Beast, Assange is facing an internal revolt by some members of the WikiLeaks group. It is clear from the report that internal ego wars are responsible for the latest attacks on its founder. In a very amateurish action, one female associate has gone public via the alternative media and stated that ‘she believes’ Assange to be an Aussie chauvinist – well, as the ‘American,’ actor Clint Eastwood, once said, ‘opinions are like arseholes, everybody has one!’
She also believes that Assange should step aside as the public voice of WikiLeaks until smear allegations are dealt with by the Swedish Courts; however, it seems more likely -- as going public with internal matters would indicate -- that she craves some of the media attention that Assange is unwisely attracting.
Internal squabbling notwithstanding, the latest WikiLeaks leaks are sure making the Pentagon and CIA happy, Ms ‘paris hilton’ Jonsdottir!
Surely the bigger picture requires us to weigh the value of WikiLeaks to the public against the overjoyed CIA reaction to Ms ‘i want my turn in the sun!’
The lesson here is clear, adhere to the hacker code of ‘Anonymity is Power,’ and keep to the primary objective of exposing the criminals and subverting criminal States; resolve your differences in private and never show anything to the world except a united front.
We are ONE or we are nothing.
O, and Ms Jonsdottir, you may also find this article interesting, it was written by another ‘chauvinistic’ Australian; a prelude perhaps, it states -- for the first time -- how in the digital age a new warrior has emerged, one that is capable of subverting an entire Nation/State. Yes, the mindset behind such creative thought is indeed, Australian – deal with it!
A final note to Julian and the core team, learn and get back to work.

Massive File-Sharing Police Raid in 14 European Countries
by via chela Tuesday, Sep 7 2010, 7:37pm
Police have raided sites in as many as 14 European countries in a file-sharing investigation. The operation is the culmination of several years of investigation. Several individuals were arrested and computers seized.
One of the inadvertent victims of the raid may have been the Pirate Bay which is currently unavailable. The Swedish ISP PRQ, which has been linked to the Pirate Bay, has been raided as well. However, the two events may be unrelated.
The operation, apparently coordinated by Belgium police forces, is aimed at taking down the Warez Scene, the secretive network of groups and servers at top of the file-sharing food chain.
Scene groups compete to be the first to make content available online, but this content is usually restricted to the private and secretive network.
However, releases typically filter down as those with access to the top servers then share the files on other sites and peer-to-peer networks.
There have been raids in The Netherlands, Belgium, Norway, Germany, Great Britain, Czech Republic, Hungary, Sweden and other countries.
Sweden saw the most activity, with seven locations, including two ISPs, being raided. A number of PCs and servers were confiscated and four people have been detained by the Swedish authorities.
The police also raided Umeå University and the ISPs PRQ and Phomera. The authorities say that all they needed was IP information at these sources and that no one suspected of file-sharing is associated with these organizations.
“At 9:00 this morning, five policemen were here,” PRQ’s Mikael Viberg told TorrentFreak. “They were interested in who were using two IP addresses from 2009 and onwards."
"We have no records of our clients but we’re handing over the e-mail addresses for those behind the IPs. However, it’s rare that our clients have mail addresses that are traceable,” he explained.
PRQ is also associated with Wikileaks, though the 'authorities' have confirmed that the operation had nothing to do with the whistleblower site.

Is Julian Assange now a target of the CIA psyops department?
by staff report via fleet - TNRA Thursday, Sep 9 2010, 8:28am
We bring you tonight the sordid tale of Julian Assange in Sweden: a saga of broken condoms, scorned women and character assassination, possibly directed from on high by unseen forces who are determined to destroy the whistle blowing organisation he founded.
After studying all the known facts it seems clear that Mr. Assange is definitely the victim in this sad affair, yet the media (including the “high-brow” broadsheets) continue to publish stories about Assange which prominently feature the word “rape”, while dredging up trivial gossip about his sex life.
‘An allegation has been reported all around the world’, Assange says of the continuing Swedish legal circus. ‘It’s at present on six million websites. In fact one in twenty websites mentioning the word rape also mentioned my name.’ - http://rixstep.com/1/20100908,01.shtml
This remains the case even though the leaked “rape” charge was almost immediately withdrawn, and no formal charges have been laid. This remains the case despite the disingenuous attempts of crooked journalists to dispel valid and justified suspicion that this is all a product of the CIA dirty tricks department.
The propensity of the global mainstream media to act in lock-step to publish baseless slander is something which must be confronted and exposed. It is tangible proof that there is a conspiracy of the powerful running things, shaping opinion and subverting democracy and the rule of law.
