WMR has learned from Asian intelligence sources that there is a strong belief in some Asian countries, particularly China and Thailand, that the website Wikileaks, which purports to publish classified and sensitive documents while guaranteeing anonymity to the providers, is linked to U.S. cyber-warfare and computer espionage operations, as well as to Mossad’s own cyber-warfare activities.
Wikileaks claims to have decrypted video footage of a U.S. Predator air strike on civilians in Afghanistan and that covert U.S. State Department agents followed Wikileaks’s editor from Iceland to Norway in a surveillance operation conducted jointly by the United States and Iceland. Iceland’s financially-strapped government recently announced a policy of becoming a haven for websites that fear political oppression and censorship in their home countries. However, in the case of Wikileaks, countries like China and Thailand are suspicious of the websites’ actual “ownership.”
Wikileaks says it intends to show its video at an April 5 press conference at the National Press Club in Washington, DC but that its presenters may be detained or arrested before that time. WMR’s sources believe the Wikileaks “militancy” in the face of supposed surveillance appears fake.
Our Asian intelligence sources report the following: “Wikileaks is running a disinformation campaign, crying persecution by U.S. intelligence- when it is U.S. intelligence itself. Its [Wikileaks’] activities in Iceland are totally suspect.” Wikileaks claims it is the victim of a new COINTELPRO [Counter Intelligence Program] operation directed by the Pentagon and various U.S. intelligence agencies. WMR’s sources believe that it is Wikileaks that is part and parcel of a cyber-COINTELPRO campaign, such as that proposed by President Obama’s “information czar,” Dr. Cass Sunstein.
In January 2007, John Young, who runs cryptome.org, a site that publishes a wealth of sensitive and classified information, left Wikileaks, claiming the operation was a CIA front. Young also published some 150 email messages sent by Wikileaks activists on cryptome. They include a disparaging comment about this editor by Wikileaks co-founder Dr. Julian Assange of Australia. Assange lists as one of his professions “hacker.” His German co-founder of Wikileaks uses a pseudonym, “Daniel Schmitt.”
Wikileaks claims it is “a multi-jurisdictional organization to protect internal dissidents, whistleblowers, journalists and bloggers who face legal or other threats related to publishing” [whose] primary interest is in exposing oppressive regimes in Asia, the former Soviet bloc, Sub-Saharan Africa and the Middle East, but we are of assistance to people of all nations who wish to reveal unethical behavior in their governments and corporations. We aim for maximum political impact. We have received over 1.2 million documents so far from dissident communities and anonymous sources.”
In China, Wikileaks is suspected of having Mossad connections. It is pointed out that its first “leak” was from an Al Shabbab “insider” in Somalia. Al Shabbab is the Muslim insurgent group that the neocons have linked to “Al Qaeda.”
Asian intelligence sources also point out that Assange’s “PhD” is from Moffett University, an on-line diploma mill and that while he is said to hail from Nairobi, Kenya, he actually in from Australia where his exploits have included computer hacking and software piracy.
WMR has confirmed Young’s contention that Wikileaks is a CIA front operation. Wikileaks is intimately involved in a $20 million CIA operation that U.S.-based Chinese dissidents that hack into computers in China. Some of the Chinese hackers route special hacking program through Chinese computers that then target U.S. government and military computer systems. After this hacking is accomplished, the U.S. government announces through friendly media outlets that U.S. computers have been subjected to a Chinese cyber-attack. The “threat” increases an already-bloated cyber-defense and offense budget and plays into the fears of the American public and businesses that heavily rely on information technology.
It is also pointed out that on Wikileaks advisory board is Ben Laurie, a one-time programmer and Internet security expert for Google, which recently signed a cooperative agreement with the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) and has been charged by China with being part of a U.S. cyber-espionage campaign against China. Other Wikileaks advisory members are leading Chinese dissidents, including Wan Dan, who won the 1998 National Endowment for Democracy (NED) Democracy Award; Wang Youcai, founder of the Chinese Democracy Party; Xiao Qiang, the director of the China Internet Project at the University of California at Berkeley, member of the advisory board of the International Campaign for Tibet, and commentator on the George Soros-affiliated Radio Free Asia; and Tibetan exile and activist Tashi Namgyal Khamsitsang.
Our sources in Asia believe that Wikileaks ran afoul of their CIA paymasters after it was discovered that some of Wikileaks’s “take” was being diverted to Mossad instead of to their benefactors at Langley. After a CIA cur-off in funding, “Daniel Schmitt” took over and moved the Wikileaks operation to Belgium and Sweden with hopes of making a more secure base in Iceland.
There are strong suspicions that Wikileaks is yet another Soros-funded “false flag” operation on the left side of the political spectrum. WMR has learned that after former Senator Norm Coleman (R-MN) decided to oppose Soros’s choice of UN Secretary General Kofi Annan’s deputy Mark Malloch Brown as President of the World Bank, succedding the disgraced Paul Wolfowitz, Soros put the Wikileaks operation into high gear. “Daniel Schmitt” hacked into Coleman’s supporters list, stealing credit card info, addresses, and publishing the “take” on Wikileaks. Democrat Al Franken, who was strongly backed by Soros, defeated Coleman in a legally-contested and very close election.
It is also believed by informed sources that Soros is behind the operation to move Wikileaks to Iceland. By becoming a power in Iceland, Soros can prevent Icelanders from paying back the British and Dutch investors in Icelandic online Ponzi scheme banking and continue his all-out war against British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, who has, in turn, targeted Soros for betting against pound sterling.
Iceland is classic prey for Soros. The Icelandic krona has been decimated as a currency and has no where to go but up in value, especially if the British pound and the euro depreciate. Soros is currently talking down the euro, planning its fall and shorting it, just like he did versus the pound in London in the 1980s. After the UK’s and Europe’s currencies are devalued, Soros will buy every euro note in sight, thus making trillions.
Soros and his Wikileaks friends have in Iceland a practically unregulated banking system desperate for an influx of capital — money that will come from the exiled Russian tycoons in Israel, London and the United States. Israeli investors like Bank Leumi, and awash in siphoned-off Bernard Madoff cash, will do their bit for this smash-and-grab operation by Soros’s Quantum-linked hedge funds.
With Wikileaks firmly ensconced in Iceland, the “brave” and much-heralded information leakers will run an international blackmail operation against Soros’s foes and launch computer break-ins against Soros’s business rivals and non-Quantum banks. Wikileaks will be used as the info-hitmen against President Obama’s and Rahm Emanuel’s enemies in the 2012 re-election campaign.
From Iceland, Soros will be well-positioned to gain control over the massive mineral resources under the melting ice sheet of Greenland. Under the ice are the only major rare-earth deposits outside of China and with such minerals at his disposal, Soros can control the world’s electronics industries. This past week’s volcanic activity in Iceland could, however, disrupt or destroy Soros’s plans to establish and control a North American-European gateway in Iceland.
The following are some of the emails Young revealed in his exposure of Wikileaks’s CIA connections (as well as to the Russian “phishing” Mafia, an operation run by Russian-Israeli Jews using Israel as a base) [Note: in the second email, “JYA” is a reference to John Young Associates]:

J. We are going to fuck them all. Chinese mostly, but not entirely a feint. Invention abounds. Lies, twists and distorts everywhere needed for protection. Hackers monitor chinese and other intel as they burrow into their targets, when they pull, so do we.
Inxhaustible supply of material. Near 100,000 documents/emails a day. We’re going to crack the world open and let it flower into something new. If fleecing the CIA will assist us, then fleece we will. We have pullbacks from NED, CFR, Freedomhouse and other CIA teats. We have all of pre 2005 afghanistan. Almost all of india fed. Half a dozen foreign ministries. Dozens of political parties and consulates, worldbank, apec, UN sections, trade groups, tibet and fulan dafa associations and… russian phishing mafia who pull data everywhere. We’re drowing. We don’t even know a tenth of what we have or who it belongs to. We stopped storing it at 1Tb.

March 26-28, 2010
Following up on WMR’s March 25, 2010 report on Wikileaks’s ties to U.S. intelligence, Mossad, and George Soros, WMR has received additional information that points to the Icelandic media law that would turn the economically-battered country into an information safe haven for websites like Wikileaks as being a contrivance of George Soros’s Open Society Institute (OSI).
WMR has learned that OSI’s Mark Thompson spoke at the May 2009 First Council of Europe Conference of Ministers responsible for Media and New Communications Services. Present at the conference was Katrin Jakobsdóttir, Iceland’s Minister of Culture, Education, and Science and members of the Icelandic parliament, the Althing. It was after this conference that the Icelandic Modern Media Initiative was introduced with much fanfare from Wikileaks and its co-founder Julian Assange. Thompson has a background that includes propagandizing for the western incursion into the Balkans, including directing the Media Analysis Unit for the UN mission in Yugoslavia, UNPROFOR; the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, and Soros’s OSI.
Wikileaks claims it is the first website dedicated to revealing sensitive and classified information. This is false. In fact, Cryptome, founded by New York City architect John Young, was the first and Wikileaks is a mere poor facsimile. John Young once proudly proclaimed to this editor that he would likely become America’s “first political prisoner” from the Internet. Young’s Cryptome has gone far beyond Wikileaks by publishing a list of British MI-6 agents, Microsoft’s manual on how it conducts surveillance for U.S. law enforcement, photos of Guantanamo and a list of the detainees imprisoned there, and even overhead photos of Dick Cheney’s home in McLean, Virginia while it was under construction.
And Wikileaks appears to have climbed on to the previous work of others. In 2008, Wikileaks claimed to have obtained, through “hacking,” the credit card records of the Norm Coleman Senate campaign in Minnesota. In fact, WMR has been informed that the credit card files, along with the campaign’s backup material, was stored by the webmaster in an unprotected folder. It was this file that was downloaded. The “hack” was heralded by MinnesotaIndependent.com, a Soros-funded operation. The illegal operation was never acted upon by law enforcement. In addition, the website PoliticsInMinnesota.com reported on the leak of the files several weeks before the Coleman data appeared on Wikileaks.
It is Young’s Cryptome that has been harassed by the U.S. government and Internet Service Providers. Meanwhile, Wikileaks has come up with a fanciful tale of its activists being tailed in Iceland by shadowy Icelandic and American gumshoes and fears that they will be “taken out” before they can air a video at the National Press Club in Washington, DC on April 5 showing a U.S. missile attack on Afghan civilians. There is also a specious claim that the military’s encryption codes were somehow broken to obtain the video. If that is true, the real story is that the United States suffered a major compromise of its cryptographic keys, something that has only rarely occurred in the past.
When John Young pulled out of the Wikileaks operation in 2007, suspecting it was a CIA front, there were also early allegations that Wikileaks was funded by Soros. Soros fronts for the CIA by running the operations of Radio Free Europe, Radio Liberty, and Radio Free Asia. In fact, one of Wikileaks’s advisory board members, Chinese dissident Xiao Qiang, is a commentator for Radio Free Asia.
Soros has been heavily involved in Iceland since 1998 and it is Soros who helped found the small Democracy Movement. The website Reykjavik Grapevine took the Democracy Movement to task last October 22 when it wrote, “A speculative column appearing on Vísir.is points out that billionaire George Soros has enough money to buy Iceland . . . Foreign investment – or foreign exploitation – of Iceland has been on the minds of a lot of Icelanders lately, especially as more companies from abroad express an interest in Iceland’s natural resources . . . And look at this, Obama’s OMB director Peter Orszag (the name is Jewish from Hungarian-Romanian Transylvania like fellow vampire Soros) and his connection to Iceland: “In 1998, after serving in the Clinton administration, Orszag co-founded an economic consulting group company with his brother and Joseph Stiglitz called Sebago Associates, where he served as president through 2007. The firm’s clients have included the World Bank, the Nordic Council of Ministers, and most notably, the Central Bank of Iceland. The once prosperous economy of Iceland has been devastated by the current economic crisis, which its citizens say was carried out by a gang of financial criminals who followed disastrous policies and advice – provided by Peter Orszag and Company.”
Soros appears to have been partly behind the collapse of the Icelandic economy and now his minions in Reykjavik and his contrivance, Wikileaks, wants to transform Iceland into an information technology safe harbor from he and his NGO network can engage in massive propaganda campaigns and destabilization efforts around the world without the fear of legal ramifications.
WMR’s sources report that the Soros Private Equity group (since renamed TowerBrook Capital Partners) invested $10 million in TradeDoubler, a Swedish online provider and platform, in cooperation with the Icelandic venture firm Arctic Ventures. TradeDoubler handles online financial payments and transactions but mainly online advertising, and is big in online betting throughout Europe. The downfall of Iceland’s banks was enabled by online banking and investment. Ragnar Thorisson, an Icelander, worked at VBS Securities before founding Arctic Ventures (where he invested in E-Trade Nordic). He then invested in Argnor, a wireless service provider. Ordinary members of the TradeDoubler Board of Directors include Niclas Gabrán and Ramez Sousou of Soros Private Equity group, now TowerBrook Capital Partners. Thorisson reportedly sold his shares in TradeDoubler.
It is also noteworthy that TowerBrook is heavily invested in healthcare services and pharmaceuticals and stands to reap huge profits from President Obama’s health care program.
Although Soros claims he is for freedom of information, going as far as promoting Iceland as a freedom of information paradise, criticism of Soros’s operations don’t appear to be covered by the former Hungarian Nazi collaborator’s largess as seen in the following RT program when this editor criticized Soros’s operations. Iceland’s Soros-prompted media reform bill also contains a provision for an Icelandic Freedom of Expression Award, a typical Soros construct. Soros’s NGO network provides for a number of awards that are used to pad the resumes of a number of dubious bad actors.
March 29, 2010
More details have emerged from WMR’s sources about the Wikileaks claim that it is subject to intense surveillance by U.S. and Icelandic authorities.
Wikileaks, a website that claims to publish explosive sensitive documents from government agencies around the world, claims to have been the subject of surveillance because it plans to release a video of a missile attack by American forces of Afghan villagers. The site also claims to have broken top secret U.S. military encryption codes to obtain the video, which it plans to release at a press conference at the National Press Club in Washington, DC on April 5.
Wikileaks has been party to a proposed media bill in the Icelandic legislature that would establish a “freedom of information” zone in Iceland benefiting journalists, human rights campaigners, and whistleblowers.
WMR’s sources claim the entire Wikileaks episode in Iceland and its claims are a fraud inspired by George Soros, a frontman for the CIA and the Rothschild banking family in Britain.
Iceland appears to be getting wise to the Wikileaks caper. According to IceNews, Iceland’s Ministry of Justice has distanced itself from Wikileaks’s alleagtions of Icelandic surveillance and Fridrik Smari Bjorgvinsson, chief of the Reykjavik police, said the only link to the Wikileaks charges was the arrest of 17 year-old in Kopavogur on March 22 for breaking into a business. Wikileaks claims the individual was questioned about how the U.S. military video was obtained. However, according to the Icelandic government, Wikileaks is creating a fantasy issue over the arrest of a young person for breaking and entering in a country where such crimes are rare.
John Young, who runs the bona fide sensitive document exposure website, Cryptome.org, left the Wikileaks board in 2007, charging that it was a CIA front. In a leaked January 8, 2007, e-mail, Wikileaks’s co-editor wrote that WMR’s editor “see[s] conspiracies everywhere” and that the condition was “possibly age related.” This editor was 52 years old as of the date of the e-mail.
WMR has learned from knowledgeable sources that Wikileaks’s claims that it protects the identity of whistleblowers and leakers are rife with problems. Wikileaks uses the program “TOR” for file downloads. WMR has been informed by one source that TOR, the German word for “gate,” “gives away email accounts, user names, and passwords on a user’s computer, meaning the CIA can trace any whistleblower dumb enough to believe Wikileaks’s hype and everyone who is downloading.” From an unrestricted information zone in Iceland, Wikileaks would be free to collect such sensitive user information to pass on to Langley and Soros’s operatives — working under non-governmental organization (NGO) cover, around the world.
Last year, Wikileaks leaked its own confidential donor list on its website. Wikileaks released a statement that the list was leaked “possibly to test the project’s principles of complete impartiality when dealing with whistleblowers.” One was a convicted hacker who had broken into Worldcom’s intranet and obtained Social Security Numbers, bank account information, and direct deposit details for over 80,000 WorldCom employees.
Soros has long preyed on Iceland’s economy. WMR’s sources reveal that during the winter of 2007-2008, Soros hedge funds were shorting the Icelandic krona. There are reports that the U.S. Justice Department is now investigating Soros’s SAC Capital for shorting the euro and the British pound.
The collapse of the Icelandic economy, aided and abetted by Soros and Rorthschild financial interests in Britain and the Netherlands, set the stage for Soros to make the approach to financially-broke Iceland to become a global information “safe harbor.”
Wikileaks critics also point out that the website has produced information that had previously been available elsewhere, including such “exposés” as U.S. detainee abuse, use of chemical weapons in Iraq and Afghanistan, and U.S. military propaganda operations. The recent revelation of a 2008 U.S. Army Counterintelligence Center report citing Wikileaks as a threat to national security is a red herring. The document proposes to identify those who leak to Wikileaks to “damage and potentially destroy” the Wikileaks “center of gravity.” According to WMR’s sources, Wikileaks’s use of TOR has already exposed the leakers. At the least, the U.S. Army’s fears about the Wikileaks site is an extreme over-reaction. At the most, the Army was attempting to boost the website’s bona fides as part of a cyber-psychological warfare campaign.
