THE ONLY WEBSITE WITH THE LICENSE TO SPY!

Ruptly is live outside the Royal Courts of Justice in London, as a preliminary hearing for the United States appeal against the denial on Julian Assange’s extradition to the US to face espionage charges is held. Assange is expected to attend the hearing in person.

A protest in his support is set to take place outside the court. ​Following that hearing, the High Court is expected to schedule a date to hear full appeal arguments. ​​In July, Britain’s High Court granted the US government a permission to appeal an earlier decision by a lower court judge that Assange could not be sent to the United States to face charges due to concerns over his mental health and potential risk of suicide in the US prison system. ​​

The Wikileaks founder faces seventeen charges under the Espionage Act, and one under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act in the US. He could get a sentence of 175 years in prison, if convicted. ​ ​​Currently, Assange is held in near-solitary confinement in London’s HMP Belmarsh.​

A UK court is allowing the US to appeal a decision denying the extradition of Julian Assange after a judge refused the request in January. Mr Assange’s lawyer Jennifer Robinson says the appeal is “not unexpected” after the ruling at the beginning of the year but the likelihood it will be granted is unknown.

Attorney: U.S. Case Against Julian Assange Falls Apart – Report

True Information is the most valuable resource and we ask you to give back.

One of the main witnesses in Julian Assange’s extradition case has admitted he made false claims against Assange in exchange for immunity from prosecution, a bombshell revelation that could have a major impact on the WikiLeaks founder’s fate.

Assange faces up to 175 years in prison if brought to the U.S., where he was indicted for violations of the Espionage Act related to the publication of classified documents exposing U.S. war crimes. According to a new article in the Icelandic newspaper Stundin, the convicted hacker Sigurdur “Siggi” Thordarson falsely claimed he was a prominent WikiLeaks representative instructed by Assange to carry out hacking attacks, but he was in fact only tangentially involved with the organization.

The article suggests the U.S. Justice Department collaborated with Thordarson to generate the indictment for Assange that was submitted to the British courts. “This is just the latest revelation to demonstrate why the U.S. case should be dropped,” says Jennifer Robinson, a human rights attorney who has been advising Assange and WikiLeaks since 2010.

“The factual basis for this case has completely fallen apart.” #DemocracyNow Democracy Now! is an independent global news hour that airs on nearly 1,400 TV and radio stations Monday through Friday.

Docu – Julian Assange And WikiLeaks – Story Of A Whistleblower

True Information is the most valuable resource and we ask you to give back.

The decision not to extradite Julian Assange to the US is unlikely to be the end of his struggle. For the past 10 years, a team of reporters has followed Assange and the WikiLeaks network.

In their first film in 2011, they portrayed Julian Assange and his team as transparency activists, fighting for a new, open relationship between citizens and information. Since then, Wikileaks has come under constant pressure from the US government. But the site nevertheless continued to publish secret and explosive information that has both illuminated and shaped our world.

In 2013, the team met Julian Assange again, interviewing him in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London. At the time, Assange had no idea that he was going to spend the next seven years in these rooms, observed by surveillance cameras. In 2016, Wikileaks played a crucial role in the election of US President Donald Trump. In 2017, it tried to similarly influence the French election. Throughout the years, the reporters have kept filming, talking to Julian Assange’s father, who regularly visits him in London’s Belmarsh prison, as well as to his lawyers. Today, Julian Assange and WikiLeaks are at a turning point in their history.

To his detractors, Assange is a spy and a traitor, and deserves his fate. His supporters say the US extradition request is a serious and unprecedented attack on the freedom of information, protected by the US constitution. And who’s to say that the news outlets that have collaborated with WikiLeaks won’t be prosecuted, as well?

The prosecutors have received Julian Assange’s consent, with some reservations, to be interviewed in London and have his DNA taken. The prosecutors have asked for clarifications concerning the reservations.

– As soon as it becomes clear that there are no obstacles for the planned investigation matters, we will submit a request for legal assistance to the British authorities to further continue the investigation. A request will also be sent to the Ecuadorian authorities regarding permission to perform investigative measures at the country’s embassy in London, says Director of Public Prosecution Marianne Ny.

At present, it is not possible to estimate when the interview will take place.

Unveiled – WikiLeaks Project K-Release of Kissinger Cables

WikiLeaks Project K – Release of Kissinger Cables

A sends:

Subject: WIKILEAKS PRESS RELEASE | THE KISSINGER CABLES OVER 1.3 MILLION DOCUMENTS

WIKILEAKS SPECIAL PROJECT K: THE KISSINGER CABLES

‘Investigative journalism has never been this effective!’ Publico

The Kissinger Cables are part of today’s launch of the WikiLeaks Public Library of US Diplomacy (PlusD), which holds the world’s largest searchable collection of United States confidential, or formerly confidential, diplomatic communications. As of its launch on April 8, 2013 it holds 2 million records comprising approximately 1 billion words.

WikiLeaks’ publisher Julian Assange stated: “The collection covers US involvements in, and diplomatic or intelligence reporting on, every country on Earth. It is the single most significant body of geopolitical material ever published.”

THE KISSINGER CABLES

“The illegal we do immediately; the unconstitutional takes a little longer.” — Henry A. Kissinger, US Secretary of State, March 10, 1975: http://wikileaks.org/plusd/cables/P860114-1573_MC_b.html#efmCS3CUB

The Kissinger Cables comprise more than 1.7 million US diplomatic records for the period 1973 to 1976, including 205,901 records relating to former US Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger. Dating from January 1, 1973 to December 31, 1976 they cover a variety of diplomatic traffic including cables, intelligence reports and congressional correspondence. They include more than 1.3 million full diplomatic cables and 320,000 originally classified records. These include more than 227,000 cables classified as “CONFIDENTIAL” and 61,000 cables classified as “SECRET”. Perhaps more importantly, there are more than 12,000 documents with the sensitive handling restriction “NODIS” or ‘no distribution’, and more than 9,000 labelled “Eyes Only”.

At around 700 million words, the Kissinger Cables collection is approximately five times the size of WikiLeaks’ Cablegate. The raw PDF data is more than 380 Gigabytes in size and is the largest WikiLeaks publication to date.

WikiLeaks’ media partners will be reporting throughout the week on their findings. These include significant revelations about US involvements with fascist dictatorships, particularly in Latin America, under Franco’s Spain (including about the Spanish royal family) and in Greece under the regime of the Colonels.

The documents also contain hourly diplomatic reporting on the 1973 war between Israel, Egypt and Syria (the “Yom Kippur war”). While several of these documents have been used by US academic researchers in the past, the Kissinger Cables provides unparalleled access to journalists and the general public.

Most of the records were reviewed by the United States Department of State’s systematic 25-year declassification process. At review, the records were assessed and either declassified or kept classified with some or all of the metadata records declassified. Both sets of records were then subject to an additional review by the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). Once believed to be releasable, they were placed as individual PDFs at the National Archives as part of their Central Foreign Policy Files collection. Despite the review process supposedly assessing documents after 25 years there are no diplomatic records later than 1976. The formal declassification and review process of these extremely valuable historical documents is therefore currently running 12 years late.

The form in which these documents were held at NARA was as 1.7 million individual PDFs. To prepare these documents for integration into the PlusD collection, WikiLeaks obtained and reverse-engineered all 1.7 million PDFs and performed a detailed analysis of individual fields, developed sophisticated technical systems to deal with the complex and voluminous data and corrected a great many errors introduced by NARA, the State Department or its diplomats, for example harmonizing the many different ways in which departments, capitals and people’s names were spelt. All our corrective work is referenced and available from the links in the individual field descriptions on the PlusD text search interface: https://search.wikileaks.org/plusd

RECLASSIFICATION ATTEMPTS THWARTED

The CIA and other agencies have attempted to reclassify or withhold sections of the US National Archives. Detailed minutes of US State Department meetings show that these attempts, which originated under the Bush II administration, have continued on through until at least 2009. A 2006 analysis by the US National Security Archives, an independent non-governmental research institute and library located at George Washington University, found that 55,000 pages had been secretly reclassified.

The censorship of the US National Archives was thrown into stark relief in November last year when the Archive censored all searches for ‘WikiLeaks’ from its records. See http://dissenter.firedoglake.com/2012/11/03/us-national-archives-has-blocked-searches-for-wikileaks/

Julian Assange, WikiLeaks’ publisher, said: “The US administration cannot be trusted to maintain the history of its interactions with the world. Fortunately, an organisation with an unbroken record in resisting censorship attempts now has a copy.”

STATUS UPDATES

WIKILEAKS AND JULIAN ASSANGE

After WikiLeaks’ publication of Pentagon and State Department documents in 2010, the White House launched a multi-agency investigation into WikiLeaks and its publisher Julian Assange. The investigation includes the Department of Justice (DOJ), the FBI, the State Department, the CIA and the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) among others. The DoJ / FBI investigation is ongoing, as is its associated Grand Jury in Alexandria, Virginia, which is headed up by District Attorney Neil McBride, a current candidate for the FBI directorship.

A number of senior political figures in the United States have called for the assassination, extraordinary rendition or kidnapping of Julian Assange and other WikiLeaks staff and for the execution of WikiLeaks US sources: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZuQW0US2sJw

The Grand Jury has coercively forced numerous people to give testimony in secret and to do so without the presence of a judge or defence lawyer. The actions of the Grand Jury, including issuing PATRIOT Act ‘subpoenas’ against Twitter, Google and other companies, is the subject of ongoing legal proceedings.

On 1 February this year, the Associated Press reported that the FBI was conducting an illegal investigation into WikiLeaks‚Äô activities in Iceland. This investigation was discovered by the Icelandic Minister of the Interior, Ögmundur Jónasson, who ordered the FBI to leave and issued a formal diplomatic protest to the United States.

Julian Assange, an Australian, was granted political asylum on 19 August 2012 by the government of Ecuador. He remains under their protection in the Embassy of Ecuador in London. British police have surrounded the embassy and the British government admits to spending more than $4.5 million on this policing presence so far. Contrary to international law, the United Kingdom refuses to grant Julian Assange safe passage to Ecuador, saying that he must be extradited to Sweden to answer questions. He has not been charged with an offence in either country and the chief of the Swedish Supreme Court says there is no legal reason why Swedish police cannot go to London should they wish to speak to him.

By 8 April 2013 Julian Assange will have been imprisoned, detained under house arrest in the United Kingdom, and unable to leave the protective custody of the Ecuadorian Embassy for a total of 854 days.

On 11 April 2013 a feature film about Julian Assange in his formative years will open the Washington DC International Film Festival: http://www.filmfestdc.org

Julian Assange is a popular figure in his native Australia, where he is running for the Australian Senate. The latest poll, by Labour party polling outfit UMR, showed he had 27 per cent of the voting intention: http://wikileaksparty.org.au/

BRADLEY MANNING

An alleged WikiLeaks source, intelligence analyst Bradley Manning, now aged 25, was arrested on 26 May 2010 by US Army investigators. Manning was detained under extreme conditions in Kuwait and Marine Corps Base Quantico, Virginia. The United Nations Rapporteur on Torture Juan E. Mendez formally found these conditions to amount to “cruel and abusive treatment” akin to torture. Judge Denise Lind of the US military court found that his conditions were illegal. After the resignation of Assistant Secretary of State for Public Affairs P. J. Crowley over the issue, Manning was transferred to Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, and the Quantico barracks were decommissioned. Mr. Manning’s defence team said that the abusive treatment may have been in order to break Mr. Manning into turning State’s witness against WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange.

By 8 April 2013 Bradley Manning will have been detained without trial for 1049 days, the longest detention without trial of a US soldier in modern history. His trial is said by Guantanamo beat reporters to be more secret that the military commissions held against al Qaeda suspects. It is scheduled for 2 June 2013 at Fort Meade, Maryland. WikiLeaks, the Center for Constitutional Rights and more than 30 other media organizations have filed suit against the US military for the abuse of secrecy used in prosecuting the case.

ECONOMIC CENSORSHIP: BANKING BLOCKADE

After documented political pressure, including from Senator Joseph Lieberman and Congressman Peter T. King, VISA, MasterCard, Bank of America, PayPal, Western Union, AMEX, Diners Club, Discover and JCB erected an extra-legal banking blockade against the WikiLeaks organization and its donors. The blockade is the subject of ongoing litigation and a resolution by the European Parliament. It has been condemned by the United Nations Special Rapporteur for Freedom of Expression, Frank La Rue, the New York Times, Reporters Without Borders, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Amnesty International, the Council of Europe, and numerous other organizations.

The fiscal blockade against WikiLeaks is similar to that conducted against the central banks of Cuba and Iran, however, unlike these two countries, the WikiLeaks blockade is being conducted with no known legal or administrative basis. In fact, the US Secretary of the Treasury found in early 2011 that there was no legal reason to place WikiLeaks under a US embargo. Due to the market dominance of VISA, MasterCard and PayPal, the extra-legal action has cut off 95 per cent of WikiLeaks’ income stream, costing the organization more than $50 million dollars.

All litigation to date has been won by WikiLeaks and its partners, but the blockade continues. An appeal, lodged by Valitor (Visa Iceland) is to be heard by the Icelandic Supreme Court on April 15, 2013.

BREAKING THE BLOCKADE: THE US FREEDOM OF THE PRESS FOUNDATION

In December 2012 Daniel Ellsberg, John Cusack, John Perry Barlow, Glenn Greenwald and others launched the Freedom of the Press Foundation, which allows US citizens to bypass the blockade to make tax-deductable and anonymous donations to WikiLeaks.

Unveiled by Cryptome – Bradley Manning Military Spying Analyzed

Bradley Manning Military Spying Analyzed

 


This comments on Alexa O’Brien’s Narration of Bradley Manning’s court statement, February 28, 2013:

http://www.alexaobrien.com/secondsight/wikileaks/bradley_manning/pfc_bradley_e_manning_
providence_hearing_statement.html

Manning’s statement provides useful information to understand military spying seldom revealed to the public. His statement was not only advised by his defense attorney but vetted by military intelligence as mandated for court proceedings.

1. Manning cites his advanced training as a military spy at Fort Huachaca, AZ, Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) 35F; this MOS requires Top Secret/SCI clearance.*

1.1 He does not describe specific skills he obtained and their application during training. Presumably much of this is classified.

2. Manning cites his military spying duty at Fort Drum, NY.

2.1 He does not describe specifics of what this spying involved. Presumably much of this is classified, particular that associated with spying inside the United States or on US persons.

2.2 Nor if this spying inside the United States and against US persons was legal. Military uses, and perhaps personal use, is likely classified.

3. Manning describes surveilling websites, chat rooms, and other fora as part of his military spying duites, including targets located in the United States and against US persons.

3.1. He does not describe if this surveillance was recorded and applied for military spying purposes by him and/or others in addition to his personal use.

3.2 Nor if this spying inside the United States and against US persons was legal. Military uses, and perhaps personal use, is likely classified.

4. Manning describes chats and communications allegedly with representatives of WikiLeaks.

4.1 He does not describe if these were recorded and/or used for military spying purposes. Presumbly military uses are classified.

5. Manning describes his back-ups of data and analysis of military spying.

5.1 He does not describe military systems back-ups which are conventional in most systems and in particular on systems handling classiifed information.

5.2 Presumably these back-ups will contain data about his and all others’ back-ups and downloads.

6. Manning describes archiving and sharing of spying data and analysis for general use.

6.1 He does not describe multi-level security measures customarily applied to archiving and sharing systems.

6.2 Presumbably these security systems recorded all uploads, downloads and accesses to archiving and sharing systems.

7. Manning describes lax monitoring of computer and network usage, outages, work-arounds and contingencies of systems he used in military spying as justification for his personal initiatives.

7.1 He does not describe counter-intelligence measures to track usage, outage, work-arounds and contingencies long associated with computer and networks, especially those handling classified information.

8. Manning admits to disclosing lightly classified information in his statement.

8.1 He does not disclose any lightly or other classified information in his statement. Presumably advised to not do so.

9. Manning does not describe military spy training in deception, undercover, ruse, lying, impersonation, dupery, false innocence, attacks, counter-attacks, guile, sabotage, planting false information, spread of disinformation, ploys and other spy tradecraft, in particular those associated with the cyber-spy curriculum at Fort Huachuca, AZ.

9.1 Presumbably much of this is classified.

10. Manning describes use of Tor for anonymizing.

10.1 He does not describe faults in Tor:

10.2 Its principal funding by the US Government;

10.3 Its tax-exempt status by the US Government;

10.4 Its principal place of operation in the US;

10.5 Its principal staffing by US persons;

10.6 Its principal board members by US persons;

10.7 Its vulnerability of tracking users through sniffing of nodes and instantaneous access to node activity by planted-ware (including the nodes which claim to not log).

_________

Corollaries:

11. The USG will call 140 or more witnesses for the Manning trial.

11.1 Presumably no prosecution classified testimony will be public, as before.

12. Manning defense will call its witnesses.

12.1 Presumably no defense classified testimony will be public, as before.

13. Military court may withhold information from the public more than civilian courts.

13.1 Information, evidence and testimonry can be classified to avoid disclosure by using military courts to cloak illegal operations.

14. MOS 35F has been revised in response to Manning disclosures, imprisonment and prosecution.

14.1 MOS 35F revisions will not be made public, especially spying inside the United States and against US persons, as before.

15. There will no disclosure of using young service members to spy inside and outside the United States, as long practiced and more recently online.

16. There will be no disclosure of manipulating young service members to believe they know more than they do or getting away with more than they are — standard means and methods of spy operations.

17. There will be no disclosure of manipulating the public by encouraging ostensibly opposition media coverage.

18. There will be no disclosure of manipulating friendly and hostile participants to inform on each other.

More later when the official transcript is released — with the likelihood it may be redacted, doctored or revised for security clearance.

 


* Top Secret clearance is for life; even it is withdrawn there is no escape from the obligation to never reveal what was learned under the clearance (Daniel Ellsberg readily admits he never revealed all he knew for that reason; nor has the other famous US disclosers not in jail or buried).

 


 

 

 

 


Cryptome – Assange’s International Subversive Vol 1

Assange International Subversive

 


A sends:

Here is “International Subversive” Vol#1, the Hacking E-zine produced / edited by the Australian ‘hacker’ Mendax in 1991 (reference: Dreyfus, “Underground: Tales of hacking, madness and obsession on the electronic frontier” Ch.8

http://suelette.home.xs4all.nl/underground/justin/chapter_8.html ) aka Assange

The document came to me in several pieces – I’ve made no changes to the content other than to stick them together in order and add in some formatting (spaces) that tidy up some of the headings, so all spelling mistakes etc are originals (there are two section “2.4” & two section “2.7”, the later of each should be sections “2.5” & “2.8” respectively I guess according to the contents section). Best viewed with a fixed-width font.

The E-zine lists its editor as ‘The Chthonic Hvee’, presumably Mendax wielded his electronic editorial pen to publish under a different alias (in the same way he was able to change is alias from ‘proff’ to ‘Mendax’ being a research contributor to the Dreyfus book. Interesting.).

I can’t confirm the original source of the document or the accuracy of its content so it comes to you with all appropriate disclaimers – perhaps some of Cryptomes readers will be familiar with the incidents , etc., discussed within and can comment further, if you decide to publish this.

Revealed – Former C.I.A. Officer Is the First to Face Prison for a Classified Leak

The first C.I.A. officer to be
convicted of disclosing classified
information to a reporter in more
than six decades is scheduled to be
sentenced to 30 months in prison on
Jan. 25. John Kiriakou is to be
sentenced as part of a plea deal in
which he admitted e-mailing the name
of a covert officer to a
reporter.His prosecution, as well as
five others, has been lauded on
Capitol Hill as a long-overdue
response to a rash of dangerous
disclosures and defended by both
President Obama and Attorney General
Eric H. Holder Jr.Mr. Kiriakou is
remorseful, up to a point. “I
should never have provided the
name,” he said.Supporters say
Mr. Kiriakou neither intended to
damage national security nor did so.
Some see a dark paradox in the
impending imprisonment of Mr.
Kiriakou, who in a 2007 appearance
on ABC News defended the
C.I.A.’s use of desperate
measures to get information but also
said that he had come to believe
that waterboarding was torture and
should no longer be used.

Revealed – WikiLeaks declares war on banking blockade

 

assange

Dear Friend of WikiLeaks 

Today sees the launch of the Freedom of the Press Foundation − a new initiative
inspired by the fight against the two-year-long extra-judicial financial embargo
imposed on WikiLeaks by U.S. financial giants including Visa, MasterCard, PayPal and
the Bank of America.   

The Freedom of the Press Foundation (https://pressfreedomfoundation.org/about), an
initiative of Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) co-founder John Perry Barlow,
former Pentagon Papers whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg, the actor John Cusack and
others, will crowd-source fundraising and support for organizations or individuals
under attack for publishing the truth. It aims to promote "aggressive,
public-interest journalism focused on exposing mismanagement, corruption and
law-breaking in government".   

Over the last two years the blockade has stopped 95 per cent of contributions to
WikiLeaks, running primary cash reserves down from more than a million dollars in
2010 to under a thousand dollars, as of December 2012. Only an aggressive attack
against the blockade will permit WikiLeaks to continue publishing through 2013. 

The new initiative, combined with a recent victory in Germany, means contributions
to WikiLeaks now have tax-deductible status throughout the United States and Europe.

Julian Assange, WikiLeaks' publisher, said: “We've fought this immoral blockade for
two long years. We smashed it in the courts. We smashed it in the Treasury. We
smashed it in France. We smashed it in Germany. And now, with strong and generous
friends who still believe in First Amendment rights, we're going to smash it in the
United States as well.” 

The Foundation's first 'bundle' will crowd-source funds for WikiLeaks, the National
Security Archive, The UpTake and MuckRock News. Donors will be able to use a slider
to set how much of their donation they wish each organization to receive and can
donate to WikiLeaks using their credit cards. The Foundation holds 501(c) charitable
status, so donations are tax-deductible in the U.S. Other courageous press
organizations will be added as time goes by. It will not be possible to see by
banking records what portion of a donor's contribution, if any, goes to WikiLeaks. 

It is admitted by Visa, MasterCard and others that the blockade is entirely as a
result of WikiLeaks' publications. In fact, the U.S. Treasury has cleared WikiLeaks
and WikiLeaks has won against Visa in court, but the blockade continues. 

John Perry Barlow
(http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/2012/apr/20/hacktivists-battle-internet?INTCMP=SRCH),
a board member of the new Foundation, says the initiative aims to achieve more than
just crowd-sourced fundraising: "We hope it makes a moral argument against these
sorts of actions. But it could also be the basis of a legal challenge. We now have
private organizations with the ability to stifle free expression. These companies
have no bill of rights that applies to their action – they only have terms of
service." 

The WikiLeaks banking blockade showed how devastating such extra-judicial measures
can be for not-for-profit investigative journalism and free press organizations.
Initiatives such as the Freedom of the Press Foundation are vital to sustain a truly
independent free press.  
In heavily redacted European Commission documents recently released by WikiLeaks
(http://wikileaks.org/European-Commission-enabling.html#pr), MasterCard Europe
admitted that U.S. Senate Homeland Security Chairman Joseph Lieberman and
Congressman Peter T. King were both directly involved in instigating the blockade. 

As journalist Glenn Greenwald
(http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2012/nov/23/anonymous-trial-wikileaks-internet-freedom)
− also on the FPF board − recently wrote: "What possible political value can the
internet serve, or journalism generally, if the U.S. government, outside the
confines of law, is empowered − as it did here − to cripple the operating abilities
of any group which meaningfully challenges its policies and exposes its
wrongdoing?... That the U.S. government largely succeeded in using extra-legal and
extra-judicial means to cripple an adverse journalistic outlet is a truly
consequential episode: nobody, regardless of one's views on WikiLeaks, should want
any government to have that power."   

But what of the chance these U.S. companies will blockade the FPF like they did
WikiLeaks? "Let Visa, Mastercard, PayPal and all the rest block the independent
Freedom of the Press Foundation. Let them demonstrate to the world once again who
they really are," said Mr Assange.

Wikileaks – Two Years of Cablegate as Bradley Manning Testifies for the First Time

assange

Dear Friend of WikiLeaks

We recently celebrated the two-year anniversary of Cablegate on the same day as
Bradley Manning testified for the first time about the torture he has received at
the hands of the U.S. government.   

To mark this occasion Julian Assange wrote a piece for the Huffington Post showing
some of the effects of Cablegate across the globe, including helping to end the Iraq
War and playing a crucial part in the Arab Spring.   

When WikiLeaks started to publish Cablegate, the largest diplomatic leak in history,
the U.S. government retaliated with unprecedented attacks on Julian Assange and
WikiLeaks, including threats to assassinate Assange and establishing an
extra-judicial banking blockade against WikiLeaks and Assange.   

Despite these attempts to close down WikiLeaks we continued in 2012 with even more
publications: the GI Files, Syria Files and the Detainee Policies. Along with our
supporters we shall continue to fight through next year as well.

--------------------------------

Two Years of Cablegate as Bradley Manning Testifies for the First Time by Julian
Assange in The Huffington Post

Thursday, November 29th, Bradley Manning testified for the first time since his
arrest two and a half years ago in Baghdad. Today also marks the two-year
anniversary of the first front pages around the world from Cablegate, an archive of
251,287 U.S. State Department diplomatic cables -- messages sent between the State
Department and its embassies, consulates and diplomatic missions around the world.
In collaboration with a network of more than 100 press outlets we revealed the full
spectrum of techniques used by the United States to exert itself around the world.
The young intelligence analyst Bradley Manning was detained as an alleged source.

WikiLeaks came under attack, with American politicians and right-wing pundits
calling for all of us to be designated as terrorists, some even calling for my
assassination and the kidnapping of our staff. Speaking on Meet The Press, Vice
President Joe Biden referred to me as a "high-tech terrorist," while Senator Joe
Lieberman demanded that we be prosecuted under the U.S. Espionage Act. The
Department of Justice spokesperson Dean Boyd admitted as recently as July 2012 that
the Department of Justice investigation into WikiLeaks is ongoing, and the Pentagon
renewed its threats against us on September 28th, declaring our work an "ongoing
crime." As a result, I have been granted political asylum and now live in the
Ecuadorian embassy in London, surrounded by armed police while the FBI portion of
the "whole of government" investigation against us, according to court testimony,
had reached 42,135 pages as of December last year.

Earlier this week, WikiLeaks released European Commission documents showing that
Senator Lieberman and Congressman Peter T. King directly influenced decisions by
PayPal, Visa and MasterCard to block donations to WikiLeaks, which has blocked 95
percent of our donors since December of 2010. Last week the European Parliament
expressed its will that the Commission should prevent the arbitrary blockade of
WikiLeaks.

Bradley Manning, who is alleged to be a source of the cables, started testifying on
Thursday about his pre-trial treatment, which UN Special Rapporteur Juan Mendez said
was "at a minimum cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment in violation of Article 16
of the Convention against Torture." Captain William Hoctor, the government
psychiatrist with 24 years of experience who evaluated Manning at Quantico base in
Virginia, testified that brig commanders had ignored his recommendations for
Manning's detention, something he had not even experienced in his work at Guantánamo
bay prison.

Bradley Manning has been detained without trial for 921 days. This is the longest
pre-trial detention of a U.S. military soldier since at least the Vietnam War. U.S.
military law says the maximum is 120 days.

The material that Bradley Manning is alleged to have leaked has highlighted
astonishing examples of U.S. subversion of the democratic process around the world,
systematic evasion of accountability for atrocities and killings, and many other
abuses. Our archive of State Department cables have appeared in tens of thousands of
articles, books and scholarly works, illustrating the nature of U.S. foreign policy
and the instruments of U.S. national power. On the two-year anniversary of the start
of Cablegate, I want to highlight some of the stories that have emerged.

A War of Terror

The United States' War on Terror has claimed hundreds of thousands of lives,
inflamed sectarian violence, and made a mockery of international law. Victims and
their families struggle to have their stories acknowledged, and the U.S.' systematic
avoidance of accountability for war crimes implicitly denies their right to be
considered human beings. Moreover, as the U.S. increasingly relies on clandestine
military operations conducted outside the scrutiny of government oversight, the
execution of this expanding War on Terror becomes increasingly uncoupled from the
democratic process. While President Obama had promised the American people in 2008
that he would end the Iraq War, U.S. troops were only withdrawn when information
from a cable revived international scrutiny of abuse occurring in Iraq, resulting in
a refusal to grant continued immunity to U.S. troops in 2012 or beyond.

In 2007 the U.S. embassy in Baghdad obtained a copy of the Iraqi government's final
investigation report on the massacre of 17 civilians on September 16th, 2007 in
Nisour Square. The report concluded that the incident was an unprovoked attack on
unarmed civilians, asked for $8 million in compensation for each death and $4
million for each injury, and demanded that the private security firm Blackwater be
replaced within six months. Blackwater continued to operate in Iraq for two years
afterwards, and the U.S. Embassy compensated victims with $10,000 for each death and
$5,000 for each injury. Five years later, the offending Blackwater mercenaries have
escaped from accountability to Iraq, and attempts to bring them to justice in the
U.S. have resulted in a long chain of dismissed cases and one undisclosed
settlement. WikiLeaks' Iraq War Logs release of 391,832 U.S. Army field reports
uncovered 14 additional cases where Blackwater opened fire on civilians, along with
numerous oth
 er incidents of abuse. The Iraq War Logs also showed how the United States handed
over prisoners to be tortured in gruesome detail -- stories of electrocution,
mutilation and of victims being attacked with drills.

The fact that, five years on, the victims of the Nisour Square Massacre have seen no
meaningful accountability is an atrocity. But it is unfortunately no surprise that
the U.S. claims immunity for its forces in other countries, then fails to administer
justice at home.

These events -- and in particular one cable detailing the summary execution of 10
Iraqi civilians, including four women and five children -- by U.S. soldiers and a
subsequent airstrike to cover up the evidence, forced the U.S. withdrawal from Iraq
in 2011. The story of handcuffed execution and cover-up sparked outrage around the
world in the midst of negotiations to extend U.S. troop presence into 2012 and, in
response to international coverage, Iraq revived its investigation into the
incident. Iraq ultimately refused to grant immunity to U.S. troops in 2012, forcing
the U.S. to withdraw in December 2011.

This systemic violence and cover-up extends to the war in Afghanistan. When news
emerged that a midnight bombing campaign on the Afghan village of Granai in 2009 had
possibly resulted in the death of up to 100 civilians, U.S. officials publicly
asserted that most of the dead had been Taliban fighters. A State Department cable
written shortly after the event summarizes a meeting between the Red Cross'
Afghanistan chief Reto Stocker and U.S. Ambassador Carl Eikenberry in which they
discussed findings from an investigation of the event. In the cable, Stocker is
referred to as "one of the most credible sources for unbiased and objective
information in Afghanistan." The Red Cross report estimated that 89 of the dead and
13 injured were in fact civilians. Neither the U.S. government nor the Red Cross
publicly revealed these figures.

WikiLeaks and the Arab Spring

The Tunisian cables describe the extreme corruption and lack of transparency of the
Ben Ali regime. The Ben Ali extended family are described as the worst offenders,
their lavish life accompanied by "a wide-range of corrupt schemes," including
"property expropriation and extortion of bribes." We also learned that Ben Ali
family assets included an airline, several hotels and a radio station. One cable
describes state censorship of Tunisia's only private broadcast satellite TV station,
and a surprise tax judgment against the station of almost $1.5 million.

In its 2011 annual report, Amnesty International praised WikiLeaks and its media
partners for catalyzing the revolution in Tunisia:

    "While the 'Jasmine Revolution' in Tunisia would not have happened without the
long struggle of brave human rights defenders over the last two decades, support
for activists from outside the country may have been strengthened as people
scrutinized the WikiLeaks documents on Tunisia and understood the roots of the
anger. In particular, some of the documents made clear that countries around the
world were aware of both the political repression and the lack of economic
opportunity, but for the most part were not taking action to urge change."

When Tunisia's president Moncef Marzouki spoke with me on The World Tomorrow, he
thanked WikiLeaks for its work, saying, "I am very grateful for all that you have
done for promoting human rights, truth, and I admire and support your efforts."

Shortly following Tunisia's revolution, protests erupted in Libya, and a new batch
of cables revealed the strategic calculations behind U.S. support of the Gaddafi
regime. In Egypt, cables revealed that Mubarak would rather die in office than step
down and that his son would likely succeed him. Then, just as evidence emerged that
Vice President Suleiman was tipped to replace Mubarak, cables were released
detailing his former role as intelligence chief, as well as his close ties to
Israel. Such elements became a crucial part of the ongoing Egyptian uprising.

A Global Death Squad Consulting Firm?

For years, WikiLeaks faced a chorus of accusations by U.S. officials and right-wing
pundits of making the world a less-safe place, and of having potentially caused harm
through publication of embarrassing secrets. In reality, the cables show that
torture and killing are not isolated events, but the violent manifestations of an
aggressive policy of coercion used by the United States in the pursuit of its
strategic commercial and political goals around the world.

While U.S. law bans the training of military units with a history of human rights
violations, in practice the law is easily and often circumvented. The Indonesian
army's elite special forces unit KOPASSUS has brutally repressed the West Papuans'
freedom movement (West Papua has been occupied by Indonesia since 1963), as has been
extensively documented by Human Rights Watch. Despite this, U.S. diplomats in
Jakarta judged in 2007 that the time had come to resume collaboration with KOPASSUS,
for the sake of "commercial interest" and "the protection of U.S. officials."

A diplomatic cable from November 2009 mentions as a side note that right-wing
paramilitaries in Colombia were responsible for the death of 257,089 victims, a
figure well above the estimations of local human rights activists. The U.S. has
nonetheless offered generous support to the Colombian military; Amnesty
International, which has called for a complete cut-off of U.S. military aid to
Colombia, has estimated that total U.S. aid in 2006 amounted to $728 million, of
which 80 percent was given to military and police assistance. As of 2012, U.S.
military support to Colombia is ongoing.

Such examples illustrate the United States' liberal interpretation of the laws
banning the training of military units with a history of human rights violations. In
another cable from August 2008, U.S. officials acknowledge that the Bangladeshi
death squad, the Rapid Action Battalion (RAB), has been involved in obvious human
rights violations, making support for the RAB difficult -- U.S. officials hoped,
however, to improve the RAB's record and polish its public image. U.S. officials
praised the RAB for having "succeeded in reducing crime and fighting terrorism,
making it in many ways Bangladesh's most respected police unit." In a diplomatic
cable from 2009, it was also revealed that the UK had been training the RAB for the
previous 18 months "in areas such as investigative interviewing techniques and rules
of engagement."

Foreign Service Spies

In 2009, Hillary Clinton sent an intelligence gathering directive to 33 embassies
and consulates around the world. The directive asked diplomats to gather
intelligence on UN officials, including credit card numbers and online handles. A
similar cable requested intelligence on officials from the Democratic Republic of
Congo, Burundy, Rwanda and Uganda, and specifically mentioned the collection of DNA
samples, iris scans and computer passwords.

Another state department cable revealed that a mole within the German government was
spying for the U.S. Embassy in Berlin, frequently updating U.S. officials on
negotiations between Merkel's conservative Christian Democrats and Westerwelle's FDP
on the formation of a new coalition government in 2009. Helmut Metzner, formerly
chief of staff to Germany's foreign minister, admitted to being the mole mentioned
in these cables when this story broke in the press, and was subsequently fired.

Lobbying for Unaccountability -- Manipulation of Judicial Process in Other Countries

Abuse that occurs in war, as it did in Iraq, is often dismissed by its perpetrators
as exceptional, and we are often assured that when abuse has occurred, the
accountability mechanisms in place will bring justice. The diplomatic cables have
given us numerous concrete examples of the coercion used by the U.S. to manipulate
and undermine judicial processes in other countries, and they establish a clear
policy for the evasion of accountability in any form.

During the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq, two journalists -- including the Spanish
journalist José Couso -- were killed and three others were wounded when a U.S. tank
fired on the Palestine Hotel in Baghdad. An investigation into the event was
subsequently launched in Spain, and an international arrest warrant was issued for
three U.S. soldiers involved. Cables showed that the U.S. aggressively fought to
have Spanish officials drop the case. Writing about the case in one cable, U.S.
Ambassador Eduardo Aguirre emphasizes: "While we are careful to show our respect for
the tragic death of Couso and for the independence of the Spanish judicial system,
behind the scenes we have fought tooth and nail to make the charges disappear."
Shamefully, this quote was redacted in the original reporting on the subject from El
Pais and Le Monde.

In another example from 2003, a German citizen of Lebanese origins, Kalid el-Masri,
was kidnapped while on vacation in Macedonia, renditioned to Afghanistan by the CIA,
and tortured for four months. When his captors finally decided he was innocent, he
was flown to Albania and dumped on a country road without so much as an apology. In
a cable from 2007, we learn that when a German prosecutor issued arrest warrants for
agents involved in el-Masri's kidnapping, the U.S. ambassador in Berlin warned
German officials that there would be repercussions. No arrests have yet been made
and el-Masri is still seeking justice.

The U.S.' manipulation extended to the UK, where a cable shows that during a British
public inquiry led by Sir John Chilcot into the UK role in the Iraq War, the
Ministry of Defence had "put measures in place" to protect U.S. interests.

Global Powers Work to Break Environmental Solidarity, and to Exploit "Opportunities"
of Climate Change

On environmental issues, cables show that the U.S. routinely makes symbolic gestures
rather than initiating substantial practices to combat climate change, and works
aggressively to tailor international agreements to its own commercial interests.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton asked embassies to gather intelligence on the
preparations for the Copenhagen UN Convention on Climate Change Meeting in December
2009, asking for biographical details of representatives from China, France, Japan,
Mexico, Russia and the European Union. Cables show that in Copenhagen the U.S.
manipulated the accord talks by offering "gifts" to poorer countries to derail
opposition to the accord proposed by first world powers. Another cable from the
Secretary of State revealed that in 2010, a Maldives ambassador designate had
stressed the importance of "tangible assistance" from larger economies to smaller
ones. As a consequence of this meeting, the accord offered financial compensation to
poor countries suffering from the effects of global warming.

In a visit to Canada in 2009 David Goldwyn, the State Department's Coordinator for
International Energy Affairs discussed public relations assistance to be offered to
the oil sands industry. Goldwyn proposed consulting experts, scholars and think
tanks to "increase visibility and accessibility of more positive news stories." The
cable was later used by environmentalists in their battle against the Keystone XL
pipeline, which ships crude oil across the U.S.-Canada border. In early 2012,
President Obama rejected the Keystone XL pipeline proposal, but recently publicly
announced support for another proposal. It also turns out that Goldwyn eventually
went on to work for Sutherland, a lobbying group in favor of Keystone XL.

The cables also reveal that the U.S. is carefully positioning itself to take
advantage of new opportunities for harvesting hydrocarbons and minerals from the
Arctic as climate change melts polar ice. U.S. diplomats were hoping to offer
Greenland support for its independence from Denmark in exchange for access by
American gas and oil companies to exploit the country's resources. The U.S. has been
closely watching Russia, America's main competitor for Arctic resources, but
American officials also showed concern over Canada's potential territorial claim to
the Arctic's Northwest passage.

Secret Agreements -- Circumvention of the Democratic Process

The State Department cables revealed that the United States and its allies
systematically make secret arrangements with various governments, hiding details not
only from the country's public, but sometimes even from the country's
representatives, ministers and oversight bodies.

In 2009, Jeremy Scahill and Seymour Hersh broke a story in The Nation on secret U.S.
special operations forces combat missions and drone strikes in Pakistan. When
questioned about the story, Department of Defense spokesperson Geoff Morrell
dismissed the claims as "conspiratorial theories." Only one year later, cables
released by WikiLeaks confirmed their story. In addition, cables quoted Pakistan's
Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani telling U.S. officials: "I don't care if they do
it as long as they get the right people -- we'll protest about it in the National
Assembly and then ignore it." Stories based on State Department cables also revealed
agreements between the U.S. and Yemen in which the Yemeni government would claim
responsibility for attacks launched by the U.S. on local militia groups. The release
of State Department cables resulted in total transparency with respect to certain
aspects of the War on Terror.

State Department cables also revealed that the U.S. worked with Australia to weaken
the text of an international agreement banning the use of cluster munitions -- bombs
which spray thousands of smaller bomblets over a large area. Out of more than 13,000
casualties of cluster munitions registered by Handicap International, over 98
percent are civilian and one-third of those are children. Despite this, cables also
revealed that the UK's then-Foreign Minister David Miliband secretly approved the
use of a legal loophole to allow the United States to store cluster munitions on UK
territory, despite the fact that the UK is a signatory to a convention banning them.
The United States is not a signatory to the Convention on Cluster Munitions, and
even attempted in 2011 to have the ban lifted by the UN.

In 2007, former Canadian Deputy Prime Minister John Manley asked U.S. officials for
predator drones to help shore up liberal support for a sustained Canadian presence
in the war in Afghanistan. At the time, Manley was leading a government-appointed
panel charged with investigating Canada's interests in a future role in Afghanistan.
In August 2012, the Ottawa Citizen reported that the Canadian government is seeking
to spend up to $1 billion on a state-of-the-art armed drone fleet.

The cables also revealed that Canada's conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper
secretly promised NATO in January 2010 that Canada would remain in Afghanistan to
conduct army training even after the end of its mission in 2011. The Canadian public
was shocked when the government announced that it would be extending its mission in
November of that year. Harper expressed concern to U.S. diplomats that an early
departure of Canadian troops from Aghanistan would seem like a "withdrawal,"
reflecting the low public support for Canada's mission in Afghanistan.

In 2008, the U.S. proposed an "informal agreement" to Swedish government officials
for the exchange of information on terrorism watch-lists. U.S. officials explained
that they feared scrutiny by the Swedish parliament would jeopardize "law
enforcement and anti-terrorism cooperation." Cables also revealed that in 2009, the
U.S. resumed full intelligence-sharing with New Zealand after it had been restricted
in retaliation for the country's ban against nuclear-powered or armed vessels in its
ports. Both governments agreed that the newly resumed cooperation should be kept
hidden from the public.

The Realpolitik of Commercial Lobbying

State Department cables illustrate that U.S. officials and their commercial partners
take a default position of having an intrinsic right to resources and market
dominance around the world.

In a 2007 cable to the U.S. Trade Representative, U.S. Ambassador Craig Stapleton
suggested taking a hard-line approach towards the European Union over its resistance
to American genetically modified products and foods. France's refusal to embrace
GMOs and agricultural biotechnology, according to Ambassador Stapleton, would lead
to a general European rejection of GMOs, and he suggested retaliation to help the
French see things differently:

    "Country team Paris recommends that we calibrate a target retaliation list that
causes some pain across the EU since this is a collective responsibility, but
that also focuses in part on the worst culprits. The list should be measured
rather than vicious and must be sustainable over the long term, since we should
not expect an early victory." 

The cables also showed that the U.S. revoked visas of then-Ecuadoran presidential
candidate Xavier Neira and seven others due to their involvement in a legal case
against the American pharmaceutical company Pfizer for unfair competition. The
timing of the decision to revoke their visas coincided with the upcoming
presidential elections and an impending court decision on the case. In its
explanation of the revocation, officials cite "corruption" and the case against
Pfizer.

The U.S.-based Shell Oil company has a long and sordid history in Nigeria, and its
representatives spoke openly about activities in the country. In a 2009 meeting,
Shell representatives told U.S. officials that they would be able to influence the
Nigerian government's 2009 Petroleum Industry Bill to suit their interests.

Cables from 2005 highlight U.S. determination to "improve the investment climate"
for mining companies in Peru. Representatives from Canada, UK, Australia,
Switzerland and South Africa met to strategize ways of circumventing anti-mining
protests coming from a diverse group of NGOs, the Catholic Church and indigenous
Peruvians. Once protests had turned violent, the U.S. used this as an excuse for
monitoring NGO groups such as Oxfam and Friends of the Earth, and asked the Peruvian
government to enhance security by taking control of roadways and transit areas.

In other cases, officials in the U.S. Embassy assisted in lobbying for or against
particular pieces of legislation according to U.S. commercial interests. U.S.
officials lobbied on behalf of Visa and MasterCard against a bill in Russia which
would have created a national card payment system, taking away Visa and MasterCard's
market share.

Strategic Duplicity on Human Rights and Press Freedom

A cable summarizing a meeting with a director of Al Jazeera shows that U.S.
officials expected a special report with graphic images of injured Iraqis to be
changed and its images removed. In another cable, the director is asked to explain
Al Jazeera's lack of coverage of the Iran elections and protests as opposed to their
"heavy" coverage of Gaza.

The U.S. Navy's Fifth Fleet is based in the kingdom of Bahrain, and the U.S. has
maintained a mutually beneficial relationship with the country's leaders over the
past years. In one cable, the U.S. ambassador to Bahrain praised the country and its
king, pointing out that U.S. companies had won major contracts there. This same
regime brutally cracked down on protesters during the Arab Spring, and Bahraini
authorities shut down dissident websites and publications. While the U.S. State
Department harshly condemned the crackdown on protests after Iran's 2009 elections,
it remained silent on the killings in Bahrain.

Thailand's Monarchy Exposed

Thailand's lèse majesté law prevents anyone in the country from speaking openly
about the monarchy without risk of severe punishment. As such, any reports about
political developments in the country are censored, and there is a huge gap in
public knowledge about the country's political environment. WikiLeaks' release of
State Department cables gives an unprecedented view of not only the monarchy's deep
impact on the politics of the country, but also the close relationship that Thailand
had with the U.S. Journalist Andrew MacGregor Marshall quit his job at Reuters to
write his book Thailand's Moment of Truth, using the Thai cables exposing obscured
and taboo aspects of Thailand's politics, history and international relations for
the first time.

U.S. Aims to Reshape Global Views and Law on Intellectual Property and Copyright

U.S.-based lobbying groups work hand in hand with U.S. State Department officials
around the world to aggressively lobby for legislation and trade agreements that
favor American companies such as Google, Facebook, Apple and Microsoft, or large
film studios such as Disney, Paramount, Sony and Warner.

A 2006 cable from Japan describes the first draft proposals for a "gold standard" in
intellectual property rights enforcement, called ACTA. This standard was meant to
give intellectual property owners much stronger powers, even at the expense of
citizen privacy and due process. ACTA was subsequently negotiated in secret, unknown
to the general public, until WikiLeaks leaked the first draft in 2008. In the film
industry, the lobbyist group for motion picture studios conspired with their
Australian counterpart to establish a legal precedent for holding an Internet
service provider accountable for copyright infringement in Australia. What is the
effect of this push and pull? It is a global environment where legislation and legal
precedents are set to benefit intellectual property owners who are rich, powerful
and influential -- even at the expense of public good.

Breaking the Monopoly on Influence

The examples I present above represent only a small fraction of what has been
revealed by WikiLeaks material. Since 2010, Western governments have tried to
portray WikiLeaks as a terrorist organization, enabling a disproportionate response
from both political figures and private institutions. It is the case that WikiLeaks'
publications can and have changed the world, but that change has clearly been for
the better. Two years on, no claim of individual harm has been presented, and the
examples above clearly show precisely who has blood on their hands.

In large Western democracies, the political discourse has been so highly controlled
for so long, that it is no longer shocking when Western experts fill in to speak for
third world victims, or when an American president stands up at a podium to accept
his Nobel Peace Prize, and makes the case for war. It is, in fact, no longer safe to
presume that a media outlet such as The New York Times would perform the same act
today as they did in 1971 when Daniel Ellsberg leaked the Pentagon Papers.

In a panel discussion with Daniel Ellsberg and New York Times editor Jill Abramson
discussing the Pentagon Papers, Ellsberg voiced his dissent over the Times'
acquiescence to the Bush administration's request to delay James Risen's story on
warrantless NSA wiretapping until after the 2004 elections. Abramson equivocated:

    "The thing is when the government says -- you know -- by publishing a story
you're harming the national security, you're helping the terrorists. I mean,
there are still people today who argue that the NSA program was the crown jewel,
the most valuable anti-terrorism program that the Bush administration had going,
and that it was terribly wrong of the Times to publish." 

On the same panel, Daniel Ellsberg said of the Pentagon Papers:

    "The secrecy of these documents has so far condemned over 30,000 Americans to
death and several million Vietnamese. And the continued secrecy of them will
undoubtedly contribute to the death of tens of thousands more Americans, and so
forth. I think that's true. But that comes up in the WikiLeaks case, right now."

Since the release of the diplomatic cables, WikiLeaks has continued its operations
despite the financial blockade, publishing leaked documents from companies selling
mass interception units to state spy agencies around the world; detainee profiles
for almost all of the people detained at Guantánamo Bay prison; U.S. policy manuals
for detention of military prisoners in the War on Terror; intelligence databases
from the private intelligence firm Stratfor; and millions of documents from inside
the Syrian government. The information we've disclosed frustrates the controlled
political discourse that is trumpeted by establishment media and Western governments
to shape public perception.

We will continue our fight against the financial blockade, and we will continue to
publish. The Pentagon's threats against us do the United States a disservice and
will not be heeded.

With thanks to WikiLeaks Press for research.

Julian Assange: Cryptographic Call to Arms

 


Excerpted from Cypherpunks: Freedom and the Future of the Internet, by Julian Assange with Jacob Appelbaum, Andy Müller-Maguhn and Jérémie Zimmermann. OR Books, New York, 2012, 186 pages, Paper. Buy online. Cryptome review of the book.

Pages 1-7.

INTRODUCTION: A CALL TO CRYPTOGRAPHIC ARMS

This book is not a manifesto. There is not time for that. This book is a warning.

The world is not sliding, but galloping into a new transnational dystopia. This development has not been properly recognized outside of national security circles. It has been hidden by secrecy, complexity and scale. The internet, our greatest tool of emancipation, has been transformed into the most dangerous facilitator of totalitarianism we have ever seen. The internet is a threat to human civilization.

These transformations have come about silently, because those who know what is going on work in the global surveillance industry and have no incentives to speak out. Left to its own trajectory, within a few years, global civilization will be a postmodern surveillance dystopia, from which escape for all but the most skilled individuals will be impossible. In fact, we may already be there.

While many writers have considered what the internet means for global civilization, they are wrong. They are wrong because they do not have the sense of perspective that direct experience brings. They are wrong because they have never met the enemy.

No description of the world survives first contact with the enemy.

We have met the enemy.

Over the last six years WikiLeaks has had conflicts with nearly every powerful state. We know the new surveillance state from an insider’s perspective, because we have plumbed its secrets. We know it from a combatant’s perspective, because we have had to protect our people, our finances and our sources from it. We know it from a global perspective, because we have people, assets and information in nearly every country. We know it from the perspective of time, because we have been fighting this phenomenon for years and have seen it double and spread, again and again. It is an invasive parasite, growing fat off societies that merge with the internet. It is rolling over the planet, infecting all states and peoples before it.

What is to be done?

Once upon a time in a place that was neither here nor there, we, the constructors and citizens of the young internet discussed the future of our new world.

We saw that the relationships between all people would be mediated by our new world, and that the nature of states, which are defined by how people exchange information, economic value, and force, would also change.

We saw that the merger between existing state structures and the internet created an opening to change the nature of states.

First, recall that states are systems through which coercive force flows. Factions within a state may compete for support, leading to democratic surface phenomena, but the underpinnings of states are the systematic application, and avoidance, of violence. Land ownership, property, rents, dividends, taxation, court fines, censorship, copyrights and trademarks are all enforced by the threatened application of state violence.

Most of the time we are not even aware of how close to violence we are, because we all grant concessions to avoid it. Like sailors smelling the breeze, we rarely contemplate how our surface world is propped up from below by darkness.

In the new space of the internet what would be the mediator of coercive force?

Does it even make sense to ask this question? In this otherworldly space, this seemingly platonic realm of ideas and information flow, could there be a notion of coercive force? A force that could modify historical records, tap phones, separate people, transform complexity into rubble, and erect walls, like an occupying army?

The platonic nature of the internet, ideas and information flows, is debased by its physical origins. Its foundations are fiber optic cable lines stretching across the ocean floors, satellites spinning above our heads, computer servers housed in buildings in cities from New York to Nairobi. Like the soldier who slew Archimedes with a mere sword, so too could an armed militia take control of the peak development of Western civilization, our platonic realm.

The new world of the internet, abstracted from the old world of brute atoms, longed for independence. But states and their friends moved to control our new world — by controlling its physical underpinnings. The state, like an army around an oil well, or a customs agent extracting bribes at the border, would soon learn to leverage its control of physical space to gain control over our platonic realm. It would prevent the independence we had dreamed of, and then, squatting on fiber optic lines and around satellite ground stations, it would go on to mass intercept the information flow of our new world — its very essence even as every human, economic, and political relationship embraced it. The state would leech into the veins and arteries of our new societies, gobbling up every relationship expressed or communicated, every web page read, every message sent and every thought googled, and then store this knowledge, billions of interceptions a day, undreamed of power, in vast top secret warehouses, forever. It would go on to mine and mine again this treasure, the collective private intellectual output of humanity, with ever more sophisticated search and pattern finding algorithms, enriching the treasure and maximizing the power imbalance between interceptors and the world of interceptees. And then the state would reflect what it had learned back into the physical world, to start wars, to target drones, to manipulate UN committees and trade deals, and to do favors for its vast connected network of industries, insiders and cronies.

But we discovered something. Our one hope against total domination. A hope that with courage, insight and solidarity we could use to resist. A strange property of the physical universe that we live in.

The universe believes in encryption.

It is easier to encrypt information than it is to decrypt it.

We saw we could use this strange property to create the laws of a new world. To abstract away our new platonic realm from its base underpinnings of satellites, undersea cables and their controllers. To fortify our space behind a cryptographic veil. To create new lands barred to those who control physical reality, because to follow us into them would require infinite resources.

And in this manner to declare independence.

Scientists in the Manhattan Project discovered that the universe permitted the construction of a nuclear bomb. This was not an obvious conclusion. Perhaps nuclear weapons were not within the laws of physics. However, the universe believes in atomic bombs and nuclear reactors. They are a phenomenon the universe blesses, like salt, sea or stars.

Similarly, the universe, our physical universe, has that property that makes it possible for an individual or a group of individuals to reliably, automatically, even without knowing, encipher something, so that all the resources and all the political will of the strongest superpower on earth may not decipher it. And the paths of encipherment between people can mesh together to create regions free from the coercive force of the outer state. Free from mass interception. Free from state control.

In this way, people can oppose their will to that of a fully mobilized superpower and win. Encryption is an embodiment of the laws of physics, and it does not listen to the bluster of states, even transnational surveillance dystopias.

It isn’t obvious that the world had to work this way. But somehow the universe smiles on encryption.

Cryptography is the ultimate form of non-violent direct action. While nuclear weapons states can exert unlimited violence over even millions of individuals, strong cryptography means that a state, even by exercising unlimited violence, cannot violate the intent of individuals to keep secrets from them.

Strong cryptography can resist an unlimited application of violence. No amount of coercive force will ever solve a math problem.

But could we take this strange fact about the world and build it up to be a basic emancipatory building block for the independence of mankind in the platonic realm of the internet? And as societies merged with the internet could that liberty then be reflected back into physical reality to redefine the state?

Recall that states are the systems which determine where and how coercive force is consistently applied.

The question of how much coercive force can seep into the platonic realm of the internet from the physical world is answered by cryptography and the cypherpunks’ ideals.

As states merge with the internet and the future of our civilization becomes the future of the internet, we must redefine force relations.

If we do not, the universality of the internet will merge global humanity into one giant grid of mass surveillance and mass control.

We must raise an alarm. This book is a watchman’s shout in the night.

On March 20, 2012, while under house arrest in the United Kingdom awaiting extradition, I met with three friends and fellow watchmen on the principle that perhaps in unison our voices can wake up the town. We must communicate what we have learned while there is still a chance for you, the reader, to understand and act on what is happening.

It is time to take up the arms of our new world, to fight for ourselves and for those we love.

Our task is to secure self-determination where we can, to hold back the coming dystopia where we cannot, and if all else fails, to accelerate its self-destruction.

New – WikiLeaks donations now tax deductible EU wide

Wau-Holland-Stiftung (WHS), named in memory of the German philosopher and net
activist Wau Holland, has been collecting donations for WikiLeaks since 2009. In the
immediate aftermath of WikiLeaks publication of the US diplomatic cables in 2010,
not only did PayPal arbitrarily shut down the WHS donations account, but the
tax-exempt status of the Foundation was challenged as well.

It took almost two years of negotiations with German tax authorities to strike a
deal: Tax exemption (charitable status) will be granted again going forward and
going back to 2011, but not for 2010. (See: "Taxing Transparency", Der Spiegel, 13
Nov 2012).

Therefore, citizens of EU member states will be able to donate to WikiLeaks
operations through WHS and in addition, write the donation off from their income
tax. This is because of a ruling of the European Court in 2009 (Decision C-318_07),
which mandates that every member state must honour the tax exemption decision of any
other member state.

And this is how you make a money transfer to support WikiLeaks:

Unveiled – European Commission enabling blockade of WikiLeaks by U.S. hard-right Lieberman/King, contrary to European Parliament’s wishes

European Commission documents released today by WikiLeaks show that hard-right U.S.
politicians were directly behind the extrajudicial banking blockade against
WikiLeaks. In the heavily redacted documents, MasterCard Europe admits that Senator
Joseph Lieberman and Congressman Peter T. King both "had conversations" with
MasterCard in the United States. Lieberman, the then-chair of the Senate
Intelligence Committee, boasted of instigating Amazon's cutting of service to
WikiLeaks - an action condemned by the Council of Europe's Committee of Ministers on
7 December 2011.

Senator Lieberman tried to introduce the SHIELD Act into the Senate and advocated
for prosecuting the New York Times for espionage in connection with WikiLeaks'
releases. Rep. Peter King, chair of the House Homeland Security Committee, tried to
formally designate WikiLeaks as a foreign terrorist organization, have its staff
listed as 'enemy combatants', and have WikiLeaks put on a U.S. Treasury blacklist.
On 13 January 2011 the U.S. Treasury announced it would not do so because there was
no evidence that WikiLeaks should be on such a list. While Lieberman and King were
unsuccessful in these methods of legally cutting WikiLeaks from its popular donor
base, they were successful in doing so extra-legally via VISA and MasterCard, which
together hold a monopoly of 97 per cent of the market of EU card payments.

VISA Europe is registered in London and is owned by a consortium of European banks.
MasterCard Europe is registered in Belgium and has similar ownership, but the
Commission papers show that European control of VISA Europe and MasterCard Europe is
a fiction. The papers reveal that the instructions to blockade WikiLeaks' operations
in Europe came directly from VISA and MasterCard in the United States. Ownership
would normally imply control, but VISA and MasterCard Europe are essentially
controlled by confidential contracts with their U.S. counterparts, a hidden
organizational structure that the Commission calls an "association of undertakings".

On Tuesday, 19 November 2012, the European Parliament took an important step towards
safeguarding the economic sovereignty of all Europeans. In Article 32 of its
resolution, the European Parliament expressed the will that the Commission should
prevent the arbitrary refusal of payments by credit card companies, which
economically strangles businesses and organizations, notably ours. The resolution is
an important step to putting an end to the Lieberman/King blockade, which has wiped
out 95 per cent of WikiLeaks' revenues. The Lieberman/King blockade has been
directly condemned by, among others, the UN Special Rapporteur of Freedom of Speech
and the New York Times Editorial Board. The blockade is a direct infringement of the
Article 19 right to receive and impart information, and threatens all donor-funded
organizations and the freedom of the press.

It comes as a surprise, then, that the European Commission is taking the contrary
view in its preliminary decision, of not opening a formal investigation into VISA,
MasterCard and AmEx's violations against DataCell, the company that collected
donations to the WikiLeaks project until the imposition of the blockade in 2010. The
Commission's 16-page preliminary decision has been announced after 15 months of
deliberations. The 'normal' waiting time is four months. Yesterday, DataCell and
WikiLeaks submitted detailed counter-arguments to the Commission's preliminary
decision.

Through the leaked documents we learn that VISA and MasterCard have used a false
statement by the Australian Prime Minister, Julia Gillard, to mislead the European
Commission. The Prime Minister's statement, which she later claimed was made in her
"private capacity", was that the WikiLeaks publication of diplomatic cables was
"illegal". This was declared to be false by a subsequent investigation by the
Australian Federal Police, which declared that WikiLeaks had not broken any
Australian law. Earlier this year, the Australian Senate passed a resolution
demanding the retraction of the Prime Minister's false statement.

The leaked documents reveal MasterCard's political stance to our exposure of the
crimes and horrors of military campaigns: "It is evident that any affiliation with
an organisation causing damage to the national interests of several nations involved
in the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq... will be extremely damaging for the public
perception of MasterCard".

Julian Assange said: 
> There is no sovereignty without economic sovereignty. It is concerning that
hard-right elements in the United States have been able to pressure VISA and
MasterCard, who together hold monopoly over the European market, into introducing
a blockade that the U.S. Treasury has rightly rejected. These unaccountable
elements are directly interfering in the political and economic freedoms of EU
consumers and are setting a precedent for political censorship of the world's
media.

WikiLeaks will continue to fight the blockade, despite its limited resources,
because it is fighting for its survival. Already there have been victories. In June
2012 WikiLeaks won its first court victory in Iceland against the Lieberman-King
blockade. Last month WikiLeaks opened a new battle front by filing, together with
its partner DataCell, a case against Teller A/S (VISA Denmark).

NOTE

The movement in Parliament and in the rest of Europe is to support WikiLeaks'
publishing rights. The German foundation Wau Holland Stiftung (WHS), which collected
donations for WikiLeaks via PayPal had their donations account arbitrarily shut
down. The tax-exempt status of the Foundation was challenged as well, as a result of
political interference which was exposed this month in Der Spiegel ("Taxing
Transparency"). Yesterday, WHS announced that, after almost two years of
negotiations with German tax authorities, its tax exemption (charitable status) has
been reinstated. Citizens of all EU Member States will now be able to donate to
WikiLeaks' operations through WHS and deduct the donation from their income tax.

*Quote from Visa and MasterCard Submissions to the European Commission*

Visa's response to the European Central Bank:

> As you will no doubt be aware, in some jurisdictions, various stakeholders have
questioned whether WikiLeaks is, in respect of some of the material it publishes,
committing criminal acts. Our Operating Regulations prohibit the use of the Visa
system for illegal purposes either in the jurisdiction of the merchant (in this
case Iceland) or the jurisdiction of the cardholder (which could be anywhere in
the world). It is possible that activities that are permitted in one jurisdiction
may be illegal in others. Accordingly, the application of the relevant position
under the Operating Regulations does not necessarily depend solely on Icelandic
law.

> This position is appropriate and proportionate in light of the alleged unlawful
conduct of WikiLeaks, which, among other sensitive material, in 2010 published and
refuses to return large amounts of material stolen from classified US military
databases. Further, according to recent press coverage, it appears that the
leaking of sensitive information is continuing.

MasterCard's arguments to the European Commission:

> MasterCard does not hold a collective dominant position with Visa... It is also
worth mentioning here that MasterCard does not constitute an 'essential facility',
and therefore is under no obligation to provide its services to any particular
undertakings.

> It is evident that any affiliation with an organisation causing damage to the
national interests of several nations involved in the wars in Afghanistan and
Iraq, and possibly putting lives needlessly at risk, will be damaging for the
public perception of MasterCard and consequently damage MasterCard's goodwill or
its [trade]Marks.

> By way of example, in 2004 MasterCard requested the Dutch acquirer, then 'Interpay
Nederlands B.V.' (now 'Paysquare') to suspend the provision of acquiring services
to merchants operating websites offering access to pornographic material including
showing sexual acts with animals ('bestiality content').

> ...before taking its decision, MasterCard Incorporated did not have any contacts
with public authorities, and therefore did not act upon request from any public
authorities.

> MasterCard Incorporated had several conversations with the FBI, US Treasury and
the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) about the possibility of such DDoS
attacks.

> MasterCard Incorporated had conversations with certain Congressional staff (i.e.
Chairman Lieberman and Chairman King's [Senate and House Homeland Security Chairs]
staff)."

*European Parliament - on Card, Internet and mobile payments*

  Towards an integrated European market for card, internet and mobile payments - 20
November 2012

The European Parliament voted that the Commission introduce legislation to determine
when credit card companies can deny payments:

> 32. Considers it likely that there will be a growing number of European companies
whose activities are effectively dependent on being able to accept payments by
card; considers it to be in the public interest to define objective rules
describing the circumstances and procedures under which card payment schemes may
unilaterally refuse acceptance;

In his intervention, Swedish MEP Christian Engstrom explained:

> Another example is when Visa, Mastercard and Paypal blocked payments to WikiLeaks.
There was no legal basis and [it] should be seen as the three companies helped the
US government to silence an inconvenient voice. It is not acceptable that private
corporations have the power of [controlling] free speech.

ON OUR OWN – November 5, 2012

Public benefit of

Wau Holland Foundation

History of withdrawal

End of 2010, the Wau Holland Foundation (WHS) was intervention by the Hessian Ministry of Interior ( [1] , [2] , [3] , [4] ,) the exempt status by the then competent tax office Kassel denied [5] . This decision was taken so that the foundation had with the fundraising and the associated project financing WikiLeaks violated the “principle of selflessness.”

Under the principle of selflessness (§ 55 AO), a foundation may not primarily pursue economic purposes, eg commercial purposes or other commercial purposes, but can only use the money to further their own goals. The withdrawal of exempt status by the IRS is already difficult to understand why, for two reasons: First, lay the tax office has not received accounting records from the year 2010 which would justify such a decision. Second, the regional council has Kassel as supervisory authority early December in a press release made it clear that the promotion of WikiLeaks very well according to the statutes of the Foundation to purchase.

Perhaps this is why the reasoning by the tax office in Hamburg, after the relocation of the Foundation inherited the controversial procedure was changed, and as a “violation of the principle of immediacy” (§ 57 AO) pursued.

During the test

The WHS commissioned a specialized foundation and tax law firm to represent their interests and put an objection against the decision [6] . In subsequent proceedings, there was a test of whether the Foundation had in 2010 met the “requirement of immediacy” and the statutes according to the donations it was no longer in dispute.

The “principle of immediacy,” requires that a nonprofit organization can indeed engage helpers to achieve their goals, it must be a traceable control procedures are set binding.

End of 2009 / early 2010 the WHS had met with the “WikiLeaks” only oral agreements, until the end of 2010, these arrangements were also fixed in a written contract with a project manager, in addition to the objectives and responsibilities and control processes are defined. Although the guidelines were already out of the contract throughout 2010, lived by all parties accordingly, did the tax office does not recognize that the immediacy was preserved and declined after 18 months of testing our appeal against the decision from [7] .

To the process after all this time to finally bring to a conclusion, the WHS agreed with the tax office to Hamburg to complain against a rejection of the opposition does not [8] and to obtain the profit for 2011 and subsequent years back.

Of present state

We have learned through this process, what contractual conditions, we need to encourage charitable can. All donors from 2010, we unfortunately have to say that these donations are not tax deductible. Nevertheless, these donations were used for the purposes of the donor.

When we are presented by the tax office promised exemption notification has been received, we can exhibit for the years 2011 and 2012 donation receipts upon request. For donations to 200, – Euro for the donor, the payment document is sufficient, together with the notice of exemption, which can then be downloaded from http://www.wauland.de.

The projects that promote Wau Holland Foundation, also here to inform.

We appreciate every donation, here you can see the form in which you can donate. For donations, large donations and inheritance rules please contact us at the contact form available.

Former CIA Officer John Kirakou Pleads Guilty to Disclosing Classified Information About CIA Officer

 

ALEXANDRIA, VA—Former CIA Officer John Kiriakou, 48, of Arlington, Virginia, pleaded guilty today to disclosing to a journalist the name of a covert CIA officer and also admitted to disclosing information revealing the role of another CIA employee in classified activities.

Neil H. MacBride, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, and James W. McJunkin, Assistant Director in Charge of the FBI’s Washington Field Office, made the announcement after the plea was accepted by U.S. District Judge Leonie M. Brinkema.

Kiriakou pleaded guilty today to one count of intentionally disclosing information identifying a covert agent. As part of the plea agreement, the United States and Kiriakou agree that a sentence of 30 months in prison is the appropriate disposition of this case. Sentencing has been scheduled for January 25, 2013.

“The government has a vital interest in protecting the identities of those involved in covert operations,” said U.S. Attorney MacBride. “Leaks of highly sensitive, closely held, and classified information compromise national security and can put individual lives in danger.”

“Disclosing classified information, including the names of CIA officers, to unauthorized individuals is a clear violation of the law,” said Assistant Director in Charge McJunkin. “Today’s plea would not be possible without the hard work of the prosecutors and FBI special agents and analysts who brought this case to justice and who will continue to pursue those who ignore their obligations to protect national security secrets.”

According to court records, the case is a result of an investigation triggered by a classified filing in January 2009 by defense counsel for high-value detainees at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. This filing contained classified information the defense had not been given through official government channels, including photographs of certain government employees and contractors. The investigation revealed that on multiple occasions, one of the journalists to whom Kiriakou illegally disclosed classified information, in turn, disclosed that information to a defense team investigator. This information was reflected in the classified defense filing and enabled the defense team to take or obtain surveillance photographs of government personnel. The government has made no allegations of criminal activity by any members of the defense team for the detainees.

Kiriakou was a CIA intelligence officer between 1990 and 2004, serving at headquarters and in various classified overseas assignments. Upon joining the CIA in 1990 and on multiple occasions in following years, Kiriakou signed secrecy and non-disclosure agreements not to disclose classified information to unauthorized individuals. In a statement of facts filed with his plea agreement, Kiriakou admitted that he made illegal disclosures about two CIA employees and their involvement in classified operations to two journalists (referenced as “Journalist A” and “Journalist B” in court records) on multiple occasions between 2007 and 2009.

Kiriakou admitted that, through a series of e-mails with Journalist A, he disclosed the full name of a CIA officer (referred to as “Officer A” in court records) whose association with the CIA had been classified for more than two decades. In addition to identifying the officer for the journalist, Kiriakou also provided information that helped the journalist link the officer to a particular classified operation.

In addition, Kiriakou admitted that he disclosed to Journalists A and B the name and contact information of a CIA analyst, identified in court records as “Officer B,” along with his association with an operation to capture terrorism subject Abu Zubaydah in 2002. Kiriakou knew that the association of Officer B with the Abu Zubaydah operation was classified. Based in part on this information, Journalist B subsequently published a June 2008 front-page story in The New York Times disclosing Officer B’s alleged role in the Abu Zubaydah operation.

Without Kiriakou’s knowledge, Journalist A passed the information he obtained from Kiriakou to an investigator assisting in the defense of high-value detainees at Guantanamo Bay.

Kiriakou also admitted that he lied to the CIA regarding the existence and use of a classified technique, referred to as a “magic box,” while seeking permission from the CIA’s Publications Review Board to include the classified technique in a book.

This case was investigated by the FBI’s Washington Field Office, with assistance from the CIA and the Air Force Office of Special Investigations. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Iris Lan of the Southern District of New York; Mark E. Schneider and Ryan Fayhee of the Northern District of Illinois; and W. Neil Hammerstrom, Jr. of the Eastern District of Virginia are prosecuting the case on behalf of the United States.

WIKILEAKS intervenes in the U.S. federal election

 

Dear WikiLeaks Friend,

From today WikiLeaks has decided to intervene in the U.S. federal election. It is clear that whether Republicans or Democrats are in power, without the sort of pressure we can exert when we are at our strongest, the U.S. government will continue to declare the whole world a battleground. Last Friday, the Pentagon publicly reissued its threats against WikiLeaks, demanding that we destroy our previous publications and cease “soliciting” U.S. military whistleblowers — and that our failure to do so was an ongoing “crime” and “law enforcement matter”. The FBI file for the pending prosecution of WikiLeaks, according to court records from earlier this year, has reached 42,135 pages. WikiLeaks is determined to stop these and other moves towards what appears to be ?€? let’s be honest ?€? a transnational security state dystopia. We believe knowledge is power and that knowledge should be in the hands of the people. By placing huge quantities of secret knowledge into your hands we can stop the concentration of power that is driving these trends. We ask that you cast the only vote that matters, and vote with your wallet. It is possible for you to make donations with your credit card, despite the attempted blockade. To do so, visit http://wikileaks.org/donate Also, please consider visiting our campaign website, at http://wikileaks.org/donate2012 and passing it on to your friends and family. Below are some suggestions Friends of WikiLeaks might want to consider to support WikiLeaks in this campaign: -Show your support to the world AND financially assist WikiLeaks: Buy a Tshirt at the official WikiLeaks store: http://www.wikileaks.spreadshirt.com – Download a poster to print and display from: http://www.somersetbean.blogspot.com – write to your national papers to correct libels against Assange and WikiLeaks: eg Julian Assange has not been charged with any crime anywhere, yet publications state the contrary. – write articles, facebook posts, tweets emails etc titled ‘Why I will not be voting for Obama’ or ‘Why I will not be voting from Romney – Contact your friends, family, colleagues and classmates organise a WikiLeaks campaign event – Create a WikiLeaks Campaign/Defence Group at your school, college, University or work place Solidarity, Julian Assange and Team

Unveiled – The Syria Files by Wikileaks

Julian Assange, investigative partnership organised by WikiLeaks and the data obtained by WikiLeaks.

Bernd Pulch, MA, Publisher and Journalist

 

 

 

 

Dear Readers,

in continuing our partnership with Wikiileweaks we will soon publish the Syria Files by Wikileaks.

WikiLeaks began publishing the Syria Files – more than two million emails from Syrian political figures, ministries and associated companies, dating from August 2006 to March 2012.

This extraordinary data set derives from 680 Syria-related entities or domain names, including those of the Ministries of Presidential Affairs, Foreign Affairs, Finance, Information, Transport and Culture.

Over the next two months, ground-breaking stories derived from the files will appear in WikiLeaks (global), Al Akhbar (Lebanon), Al Masry Al Youm (Egypt), ARD (Germany), Associated Press (US), L’Espresso (Italy), Owni (France) and Publico.es (Spain). Other publications will announce themselves closer to their publishing date.

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said: “The material is embarrassing to Syria, but it is also embarrassing to Syria’s opponents. It helps us not merely to criticise one group or another, but to understand their interests, actions and thoughts. It is only through understanding this conflict that we can hope to resolve it.”

At this time Syria is undergoing a violent internal conflict that has killed between 6,000 and 15,000 people in the last 18 months. The Syria Files shine a light on the inner workings of the Syrian government and economy, but they also reveal how the West and Western companies say one thing and do another.

The range of information extends from the intimate correspondence of the most senior Baath party figures to records of financial transfers sent from Syrian ministries to other nations.

The database comprises 2,434,899 emails from the 680 domains. There are 678,752 different email addresses that have sent emails and 1,082,447 different recipients. There are a number of different languages in the set, including around 400,000 emails in Arabic and 68,000 emails in Russian. The data is more than eight times the size of ’Cablegate’ in terms of number of documents, and more than 100 times the size in terms of data. Around 42,000 emails were infected with viruses or trojans. To solve these complexities, WikiLeaks built a general-purpose, multi-language political data-mining system which can handle massive data sets like those represented by the Syria Files.

In such a large collection of information, it is not possible to verify every single email at once; however, WikiLeaks and its co-publishers have done so for all initial stories to be published. We are statistically confident that the vast majority of the data are what they purport to be.
