Wikileaks Threatens "Doomsday Files" Info Drop If Harrassment Doesn't Stop

Filed under--Waiting for the other shoe to drop
Whichever side of the fence you're on about Mr. Assange he's exposing secrets that has both the right and left up in arms, so he must be doing something worthwhile. What we're puzzled by is the vilification of Assange by the so-called "transparency in government" right-wingers who regularly meet behind closed doors with the elites and special interests out of public view and scrutiny. The same group who wants Assange's head on the block for allowing the world a front row seat into the inner workings of governments.

Double standard anyone?

We'd love to see the BP and energy company documents!

The latest on this fascinating drama:
Julian Assange, the WikiLeaks founder, has circulated across the internet an encrypted “poison pill” cache of uncensored documents suspected to include files on BP and Guantanamo Bay.
One of the files identified this weekend by The Sunday Times — called the “insurance” file — has been downloaded from the WikiLeaks website by tens of thousands of supporters, from America to Australia.
Assange warns that any government that tries to curtail his activities risks triggering a new deluge of state and commercial secrets.
The “doomsday files” are part of a contingency plan drawn up by Assange and his supporters as they face a legal threat. He is wanted in Sweden over sexual assault allegations, and the US administration is reviewing the possibility of legal action after the release of 250,000 diplomatic cables.
Ben Laurie, a London-based computer security expert who has advised WikiLeaks, said: “Julian’s a smart guy and this is an interesting tactic. He will hope it deters anyone from acting against him.”
The file is 1.4 gigabytes in size, which would be big enough for a compressed version of all the files released this year and additional data.
Assange said last year that he had been leaked a computer hard drive from an executive at Bank of America and warned this month he was planning a major release on a large American bank. He also claims to have confidential files on BP and other energy companies. Tens of millions of personal computers were hijacked last week in an act of sabotage that crippled the WikiLeaks website. WikiLeaks revealed that a “denial of service” attack that temporarily shut down the website used a network of “zombie” computers, which were infiltrated by the hackers. Read more here
Assange is probably not the kind of guy to piss off any more than he already is, but with big egos comes small judgment, and we predict they'll push him over the edge. Probably not the best idea to play chicken with a Mack truck.

It will be interesting to see how this plays out in the near future.

But, there is another side to this and some independent news sources and bloggers have raised questions about the authenticity of Wikileaks and Assange--is he a plant, a fraud and is this for real? The government (CIA) is a master at deception and the "authoritative" MSM press follows along dutifully more often than not, so anything is possible. 

*Update--Senator Lieberman is trying to change the law, after the fact we might add, and make Wikileaks illegal, in addition to going after the NY Times for publishing documents. Here's a link to a petition if you think that's suppression of information and Wikileaks should continue.

  1. Transparency one way of the other. Looks like the 'other' is coming down the pike. I can't help the fact I love this, even with rough truths coming out.

    Good job, Max!!!

  2. Did the government lie about the BP spill? Do they lie about being in bed with the energy giants? If we were to see the lies would it be compelling?
    Yes to all of the above.

  3. Wikileaks has jumped the shark.

  4. It's a fair question considering the second round of info has been out there for a while, waiting for the "right moment." They, whoever they may be, know where Assange is and could get him anytime they wanted. What scares me is I heard a Birmingham local talk show host suggest "a bullet to the brain would stop him." That's real close to condoning the murder of someone you don't agree with and very inappropriate for an on air personality to say, in my opinion. Who said it? WAPI Leland Whaley Dec 6.
    That idiot should be fired for what he said, but he won't be, he probably won't even apologize and claim first amendment free speech, which may apply, but he was still exercising very poor taste with his comment.
    They just don't get it that they are under the microscope too for what they say on the airwaves. If a liberal has said that, it would be all over the evening news, but this is Alabama and republicans can say whatever they want with no reprimands. Especially certain radio hosts and that station has two that run off at the mouth constantly.
    But if Wiki is for real I can't wait to see the next, borrowing form you Max, shoe to drop!!!!

  5. 10-4 Kat heard that myself, but what do you expect from a former Rileyite? I stopped listening to that station when they hired Murphy for the am drive. Big mouth blowhard if ever there was one. Okay to preach to the congregation, but if you yell at them don't expect them to keep coming. We have better choices for morning radio, but they are not on as long unfortunately.
    WAPI morning bunch is pissed because a lot of the right is getting their comeuppance from Wiki. Assange should just go ahead and open the second barn door and quit bellowing about it.

  6. Assange is playing his cards right, if you ask me. And he has some mighty good looking cards so far. How would anyone expect these blowhards to act? I think it's funny. Let them all squirmy, wiggle, jiggle, moan and groan. The light is shining on their grubby little pointed pinheads. If they didn't want to be discovered, they should have tended to their business a lot better. Remember? The bigger they are the harder they fall? TIMBER!!!

  7. Radio is becoming irrelevant because they won't get the real story and tell the rest of us, it's all talking points crap and politically correct dumbo jumbo.
    Assange needs to come on with it. Stop teasing.

  8. Murphy=blowhard bloviator who argues nonstop with anyone who disagrees with him. I cannot stand that whinny voiced pinhead! Leading up to the election all he did every damn day was act as a commercial for his republican candidates. It was sickening how in the tank he was, not too mention all the free campaigning certain politicians got from him and WAPI.
    Whaley's a little more laid-back, but that comment he made today was way out of line! Inmates running the asylum over there.
