WikiLeak Update: Are You Gawking at This Yet?

Julian Assange    Source: Guardian.co.uk
It's a bit of a perfect mess now, isn't it?   Julian Assange, Editor in Chief of WikiLeaks,  is in jail on trumped up charges of  unexpected sex (when sex was certainly expected). Mr. Assange has a second bail hearing Tuesday in which his attorney will argue vehemently for his release. Julian's mother, Christine has flown in from her home in Queensland to provide support.  In an interview with Sunshine Coast Daily , she quoted a statement from her son,

My convictions are unfaltering. I remain true to the ideals I have always expressed.
These circumstances shall not shake them. If anything, this process has increased my determination that they are true and correct.
 We now know that Visa,  Mastercard and Paypal are instruments of US foreign policy. It's not something we knew before.
I am calling on the world to protect my people from these illegal and immoral acts.

His one accuser, Anna Ardin, has left Europe on a Christian-based mission to bring peace to the Middle East. Her Swedish accomplice, Sophia Belin, remains in silent seclusion. We're betting they both have Hollywood agents and are negotiating for a six figure exclusive tell-all of their adventureTwo Women Scorned, The Wiki Leaked.


The always fair and compassionate Western governments and their lackey national news media-darlings are demanding justice for the embarrassing diplomatic cables. According to Assange's lawyer, a secret grand jury is rumored to be investigating WikiLeaks for possible violation of  U.S. spying laws. [ed note: he's Australian, not American,-good luck with that]

 A disgruntled ex-employee is launching his own kinder, gentler WikiLeak called OpenLeaks.  Based on his business plan, he should re-name it NoLeaks.

Websites that oppose WikiLeaks are attacked faster than an F-5 tornado. We are all under surveillance by a shadowy world citizen's group who call themselves Anons.

Gawker.com showed us their arrogant side, sent a message of support to Obama, taunted the Anons for a weak DDOS attack, and then referred to their bloggers/users as peasants (see below)  while their own servers were being drained of every last user name and password by a group calling themselves Gnosis. Anyone who ever briefly registered in order to post a comment on a gawker website spent today changing every password on every site they have ever registered for- a very inconvenient and time-consuming job for millions of unhappy soon-to-be-former gawker clients.

Gawker Admin refers to
their bloggers as "peasants"

We first received an email at 6:59 a.m. EST this morning from hint.io that gawker.com had been hacked and our passwords were floating along in a sweet bit torrent, millions of passwords strong- shining like little beacons to criminals all around the world.  Hint.io also took a dig at gawker.com
In situations like this, time is of the essence, which is why we were surprised & shocked to find that Gawker Media hadn't taken the initiative to notify you of this privacy breach immediately. We HIGHLY recommend you change all of your online passwords as a precaution. 
A full 14 hours later, at 8:59 p.m. Monday night, gawker.com sent us the official "we've been hacked and your password is compromised" email.  In 14 hours, thieves could have emptied our bank accounts, drove toWalmart, bought a Samsung 54" LCD TV, set it up, turned it on, watched Inception, ordered Chinese Take-Out, and watched the first half of the Giants- Vikings football game.
 Here is the opening paragraph of gawker.com's email:
This weekend we discovered that Gawker Media's servers were compromised,
resulting in a security breach at Lifehacker, Gizmodo, Gawker, Jezebel,
io9, Jalopnik, Kotaku, Deadspin, and Fleshbot. As a result, the user name
and password associated with your comment account were released on the
internet. If you're a commenter on any of our sites, you probably have
several questions.
We only have one question. And a comment.  14 hours, WTF?  and  EPIC FAIL.   We know these are technical terms that don't include an iphone4 for you to tear apart and destroy in order to understand how critical it was to notify the peasants that your security had been breached!

And a special thank you to hint.io for letting us know in a timely manner that our internet security was severely compromised in a manner that required immediate action.

Meanwhile, the U.K. keeps Julian Assange in a cell with no computer, with cameras on 24/7. The cameras are to prevent anyone from attempting an assassination, Julian was told by authorities.  Apparently, the authorities have never watched Mission Impossible or seen Gnosis in action.  It's a safe bet the U.K. will deny him bail, then extradite him to the United States for more trumped up charges. Mr, Assange could become our first enemy combatant in the brand new undeclared war...against truth.

This Wikileaks story has become both Shakespearean and Orwellian.


Tuesday morning update:  Gnosis reveals that this ain't over.  We are praying for the 15 year old teenagers who accidentally or stupidly will ping gawker media's site. Seems the law enforcement community is focused on those poor, sacrificial lambs.  Run, little children, run!

Postscript: 
 Here is a copy of the letter Julian Assange wrote to the United States Government on November 26, 2010 requesting their assistance in vetting the U.S. Diplomatic cables in order to protect certain assets (secret agents) from harm.




Julian Assange
Editor in Chief, WikiLeaks
Ambassador Louis B. Susman
US Embassy
24 Grosvenor Square
London, W1A 1AE
United Kingdom


26 November 2010


Dear Ambassador Susman,


I refer to recent public statements by United States Government officials expressing concern 
about the possible publication by WikiLeaks and other media organisations of information 
allegedly derived from United States Government records. I understand that the United States 
Government has recently devoted substantial resources to examination of these records over 
many months.


Subject to the general objective of ensuring maximum disclosure of information in the public 
interest, WikiLeaks would be grateful for the United States Government to privately nominate 
any specific instances (record numbers or names) where it considers the publication of 
information would put individual persons at significant risk of harm that has not already been 
addressed.


WikiLeaks will respect the confidentiality of advice provided by the United States Government 
and is prepared to consider any such submissions made without delay.


Yours sincerely,




Julian Assange
