"Assange en paranoid tyrann"
 
 
 Wikileaksgrundaren Julian Assange står misstänkt för våldtäkt 10.02.2011

Arbetet vid Wikileaks är kaotiskt och hela den slutna organisationen leds av en paranoid envåldshärskare som heter Julian Assange. Bland annat de här beskyllningarna riktas nu mot Wikileaks, av den tidigare chefsprogrammeraren och presstalesmannen Daniel Domscheit-Berg. Han lämnade Wikileaks i höstas och har nu skrivit en bok om sin tid vid Wikileaks.



- Allt kretsar kring Julian Assange och jag tror att det här till slut inte kommer att leda någonstans, säger Daniel Domscheit-Berg.

I boken "Inside Wikileaks: My Time with Julian Assange at the World's Most Dangerous Website", går han ut med hård kritik mot Assange. Han talar om kaoset som härskar vid Wikileaks, om den allsmäktige ledaren Assange och om problemen med att skydda de källor som läcker material via Wikileaks. Julian Assange beskrivs som maktgalen, paranoid och sparsam när det gäller sanningen.

Allt mer sluten organisation


Daniel Domscheit-Berg lämnade Wikileaks under hösten, efter att ha hamnat på kollisionskurs med Assange gällande hur denne ledde organisationen. Kritiken handlade också om att Wikileaks, trots att man arbetade för öppenhet, hade utvecklats till en allt mer sluten organisation. Domscheit-Berg startade projektet Openleaks och tog med en del av de program som han hade utvecklat som chefsprogrammerare vid Wikileaks.

- Vi som lämnade Wikileaks ville inte lämna en del av programmen kvar, eftersom vi tyckte att Assange var utom all kontroll, säger Domscheit-Berg.

Assange försöker nu på juridisk väg komma över mjukvaran, medan Domscheit-Berg har sagt att han är villig att överlämna allt han har, så fort han bedömer att Assange kan axla ansvaret.

Samtidigt som Domscheit-Bergs bok släpps i 16 länder i morgon, hålls slutpläderingarna i den rättsprocess, som skall avgöra om Julian Assange utlämnas från Storbritannien till Sverige, där han är misstänkt för våldtäkt.

Assange motsätter sig utlämningen, eftersom han befarar att han från Sverige kan komma att utlämnas till USA. Enligt Assange riskerar han dödsstraff om han utlämnas till USA.

Svårt fall för åklagarsidan


Som det ser ut nu så verkar de juridiska myndigheterna i USA ändå ha stora problem med att sätta ihop åtalet mot Assange. Enligt tidningen Wall Street Journal har utredarna misslyckats i sin viktigaste uppgift, nämligen att knyta Assange till den amerikanske soldaten Bradley Manning, som misstänks ha läckt material om bland annat krigföringen i Irak och Afghanistan till Wikileaks.

Myndigheterna har utgått från att det var Assange som uppmanade Manning att läcka informationen, men enligt Wall Street Journal har utredarna kommit fram till att Manning arbetade helt på egen hand. Just nu ser det alltså ut som om det blir svårt att hitta ens en hållbar åtalspunkt mot Assange. Att åtala honom för till exempel landsförräderi är så gott som omöjligt, då Assange inte är amerikansk medborgare.

...och inte nog med detta.

Sen kommer Justitiemördaren själv fram i ljuset och förklarar för den svenska mobben att han inte längre kan förbli en Svensk Tiger.

Världen har överskott på tyranner! Det är skrämmande hur mobben beter sig nu när alla autentiska domstols dokument i denna ruttna affär finns att tillgå och inte behöver läsa eller lyssna på mass medias uppdiktade politiska förljugenhet.

En tänkbar dialog: Hon sa till Honom; "Jag tar risken att bli med barn med dig men på mina villkor"

Han sa till Henne: "Jag tar risken att göra dig med barn, men på mina villkor"

Vem förföljde vem?

Det förvånar mig att folk fortfarande tror att det finns två olika kön.

Verkligenheten ligger väl mitt emellan: Internal penis och external vagina. Ingen kan längre dupera den andre eller gömma sig bakom ett läppstift eller en slips varken i Riksdagen eller därute på gatorna.

Med "boken" som vapen. Vem bryr sig om en Gutenbergsprodukt i 21 århundradet. Möjligtvis några avdankade akademiker ser fortfarande boken som en helig produkt. Enda effekten en bok har är i andra tryckta obsolete media som t.ex. Tabloida skvaller tidningar med dess vanebildade läsare, som inte läser boken utan bara läser rubrikerna om att en bokdjävul har blivit publicerad av ett djävla bokförlag och tar för givit att det är något viktigt som hänt. Vilken media bluff.

Bokläsarnas tid är förbi.

En avundsjuk och hämnd lysten f.d. "talesman" för WikiLeaks har fått paranoia och beter sig som en asgam.

 Gillard continues to get it wrong on Assange

349 Comments

Stephen Keim

"The latest statements by Australian Prime Minister, Julia Gillard, as to her Government’s lack of responsibility concerning WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange, continue to reflect a misunderstanding of key issues concerning Mr Assange, the Australian citizen facing extradition proceedings from the United Kingdom to Sweden, and the actions of the WikiLeaks organisation."

"Ms Gillard is quoted as saying that she has no responsibility and can do nothing about the legal situation faced by Mr Assange. There are a number of things that the Government can and should do for Mr Assange. For example, the Australian Government should seek very clear diplomatic assurances from the Swedish government that Mr Assange will be free to return to a country of his choice if the investigation concerning alleged sexual misconduct by Mr Assange in Sweden is determined in Mr Assange’s favour. The Australian Government should do everything in its power, diplomatically and legally, to ensure that there is no risk that the Swedish extradition request would be used as an excuse to have Mr Assange extradited from Sweden to the United States to face charges that have all the hallmarks of being politically inspired".

      This whole page below incl. the comments should be read by the English Court early Friday, 11 Feb EST and in good time before more derailed decisions are taken.

      The whole matter should be transferred to The European Court ASAP.

      At the same time a law suite against the Swedish Government should be filed for the defamation of Mr Assange incl a summon, by Assange's English legal defense team.

          Why does Mr Assange have to be in Sweden to be questioned?
          Can't they do that via teleconference?

              The purpose was to put him in room in custody isolated without any contact at all for some time, to make him "soft".

              Now it looks like the tide is turning the other way around. The two girls and their legal entourage may have to go to London instead for cross examinations.
              Still, Assange's claim for a super compensation will remain for the defamation of his name.
              All the court paper of this case is avaliable on the internet, unfortunately in Swedish and that will be some problems with translation and interpretations as the Swedish language is in danger of extinction.

                  But Mr Assange is not a journalist. He is the owner of a website.

                  Lots of people posting here have their own website or blog but it doesn't make them a journalist.

                  You might say the current problems in the Middle East have been greatly exacerbated by Assange's release of information about Saudi Arabia asking for action to be taken against Iran.

                      If I say he is a journalist, he is a journalist, and a publisher, editor and a website owner.
                      Writings are overrated!
                      Journalism is basically thoughts, and can be expressed in a numbers of ways.
                      Do you think journalism is a sacred act?

                          So he's a former journalist? Had things published in his school magazine? Was that at the same time he was working as a computer programmer?? Or when he was hacking under the nom de web "Mendax", and was found guilty of 25 offences? He did the research on the Hacking book by Dreyfus. That doesn't make him a journalist.

                          I have worked as a research assistant. It doesn't make me a journalist.

                          He does not write the stuff he releases on his website. He just 'manages' the uploading of it. His qualifications consist of half a science degree from University of Melbourne. He describes himself as a managing editor.

                          If I wanted to apply for a job as a journalist, I would find that I needed tertiary qualifications such as Bachelor in Journalism or Mass Communication and often a subject speciality as well, such as sport, politics, religion, etc.

                          I, too, belonged to journalists' unions in UK when I worked in newspapers over there. Have been a website editor, too, but didn't realise I could call myself a journalist.

                            Post Script:

                            Someone like Christopher Hitchens is a journalist. Just take a look at the list of his publications: essays, books, articles, reviews, etc.

                            Oxford graduate and very widely read. Contributing editor - note 'contributing' - to Vanity Fair.

                            Christopher is a great many things, including a (real) journalist!

                              ...and now Assange will publish a book and that means he is an author too.
                              As more books you write as more failed your are as author or writer or journalist. Books are bad, they don't even bounce if one throw them on the floor.

                        Well, we just heard the US Ambassador in Australia right now on Lateline saying: "We are not after Julian Assange..."
                        What else would we expect to hear and what would an ambassador's word stand for?

                        Laughable, but not funny. Facts from an article by Andrew Kreig.

                        "Nils Rekke, head of the legal department at the Swedish prosecutor's office in Stockholm, said Assange would be protected from transfer to the U.S. by strict European rules."

                        That's strictly bullshit.

                        "Best-selling spy thriller author Thomas Bodström ─ an attorney whose firm represents the two Swedish women making the notorious sex charges against WikiLeaks leader Julian Assange ─ knows better than most people that truth is stranger than fiction. As Sweden's Minister of Justice, Bodström, helped his nation in 2001 secretly turn over to the Central Intelligence Agency two asylum-seekers suspected by the CIA of terror, according to materials recently obtained by the Justice Integrity Project and by the Legal Schnauzer blogger.

                        The CIA flew the terror suspects to Egypt for torture as part of the decade's rendition effort requiring secret, high-level Swedish cooperation. Assange is the subject of a recent global manhunt by the Swedes seeking him for questioning. The United States is investigating him intensely, but has not filed charges. But Assange can take only cold comfort that Sweden, under international pressure, eventually awarded the 2001 asylum seekers damages for torture.

                        On Jan. 11, Assange's attorneys spoke of their fears that if Great Britain sends their client to Sweden for an inquiry on sex charges he could end up being sent by Sweden to the United States on spy charges. There, the defense lawyers said, Assange could face death or imprisonment at Guantanamo in Cuba, where the Bush and Obama administrations can hold so-called terrorists almost indefinitely with minimal due process. As a parallel development, the Obama administration has used the disclosures as rationale for a wide-ranging crackdown not simply against WikiLeaks but against anyone in government or the media, particularly the web-based media, who might disclose secrets that the government regards as threatening national security.

                        Our project summarized these developments this week in a column, "Whistleblower Says: Obama's DoJ Declares War on Whistleblowers."

                        Bodström left his parliament seat last year to move to the United States for six months, citing a need for family time and to write another book.

                        Is he again cooperating with U.S. authorities in their all-out effort to save the United States, Sweden - and perhaps Bodström himself - from further embarrassment caused by cables WikiLeaks might release from its still-secret trove?"

                        The answer to the last question is yes

                            "That's strictly bullshit". Yes indeed it is!
                            and more; Thomas Bodstrom's childhood friend, Johan Eriksson is part owner of Assange's current Swedish lawyer Bjorn Hurtig's legal firm "Forsvarsadvokaterna". Thomas Bodstrom and Johan Eriksson did have a legal office together earlier and before Thomas Bodstrom was appointed as Minister of Justice in Sweden. It is a small country, and many are the problems with regards to "conflict of interest" and the ethical aspects.
                            This case should be handled by a European Court, not a Swedish.
                            The current Swedish Minister of Justice, Beatrice Ask urged Assange to "turn him self in", but seriously she would turn her self out and resign instead in company of Nisse Rekke, ASAP.

                          Julia Gillard is a lowlife, er... politician so, we know what to expect. Anything but the truth. Julian Assange, by exposing the lies and hypocrisy of governments will save more lives than it endangers. Colin Powell got off lightly.

                            Ms Gillard's dangerous message is already delivered.
                            Do you expect her to withdraw?

                            To put the two Swedish girls behind bars may be the only solution to this case for the return of Assange home to Australia in waiting for the Nobel Prize.

                            The alternative would be to swap Gillard for Assange in returning Ms Gillard to England. It is her birth rights!
