People died because of their affiliation with Wikileaks


www.wikileaksforum.net

People have died because of their affiliation with secrets website WikiLeaks, according to founder Julian Assange.

In a little-noticed interview with BBC's John Humphrys, Assange claimed that WikiLeaks is not just facing financial and legal attacks. People associated with the website have actually been assassinated, he said.

Well it seems a little cryptic and it is a shame the interviewer never followed up on this, becuase if true seems like a gem.
Whom could he be refering too? People in the past have leaked information to him. Maybe he means them or does he mean people that work for him....
Either way I wouldnt ay it is the safest organiation to work for. He seems real good at peeing off people in power...

Tis best to take note and wait till more evidence comes out before making a finite judgement...

my biggest question here is
could this remark from Assange
mean an actual death or could he
mean that their credibility or
reputation has been assassinated?
Pity, this was not followed up on
with subsequent questions.

It's possible, but for different reasons. Since there are a lot of dubious details about Wikileaks, it feels more like a front, or a set up. They had to set up the site and have some legitimate people submit legitimate details. Some were published, but what if some documents that were submitted were really damning to some entity?

If we are to believe that Wikileaks is a gov't agency front, then it's possible that such documents were never published, and that their submitters were, ahem, removed.

All the submissions that happened before Bradley Manning are probably on record somewhere and the identities of the submitters were investigated/are known.

Wikileaks, Assange, and the wikileaks fanboys, are a bunch of drama queens.

I highly doubt anybody died because of their affiliation with wikileaks.

If you were to make the argument with credible information, it would be more believable.

It is probally safer to say people have died because of the wikileaks information being released.

The wikileaks psyop operation is designed to curtail our freedoms abroad and online.

Whether they are honest, real, a CIA front, drama queens, or whatever, it does not change the fact that they are making available information that we would not have received anyways.

Making an argument with credible information is important...yes.. so maybe you should before stating off the wall comments like:

evidently you walk the walk but you cannot talk the talk....

as for evidence what i supplied came from a bbc interview with assange and we can only speculate because facts are missing.. I was not attempting to provide an argument there is not enough evidence for that.

share your love not your pain...

sure its all drama, nobody gets assassinated, thats hollywood stuff


the best way to hit wikileaks activities is to assassinate some members ... the others will just give up in fear

I watched a documentary and a journalist associated with wikileaks gets death threats for him and his family every day ...

A new theory just occurred to me.

We've all heard about the 'fishyness' of WL and people behind the scenes (now forgive me if somebody has already raised this point) but perhaps WL and Assange are working with the U.S and other governments providing an 'anonymous' method of leaking information for government/military employees etc. when in fact they are just identifying "traitors" within the ranks?

Hmmmm seems to make a lot of sense- no evidence or suggestive articles here just my mind at work

The worst that can happen, is that Wikileaks pros are telling BS.

This happens in this thread.

Well if it did happen it wouldn't be
front page news .."if it was done right!"

Well, it is possible that there are organisations pissy enough to call for some geek pushing for transparency of government to have his clogs popped,

OR

Assange feels he's losing the public vote and has to add an edge of danger to keep their attention.


I'm undecided as to which I feel is more likely.

A little more - names, dates, proof of affiliation with wikileaks, proof that deaths were non-accidental or at the very least, suspicious - might help me decide.

Originally I was a proponent of this Wikileaks thing, but now I'm starting to agree with you. Until I see some truly stunning information revealed with credible information to back it, Assange will look like nothing less than a media whore/government pawn.

I wouldn't be surprised by this. Reminds me of that part when they got volunteers to go through the Iraq war files to censor sensitive names that would put people in danger one of them commented "I left the meeting with a thumb drive containing the Iraq war files." At that moment I thought I would probably piss myself if I had the whole uncensored files in thumb drive. That intel would be very valuable to some people. That is just one example. Thing is that they probably don't wan't to make a martyr out of Julian but some unknown volunteer working covertly is another thing. Organizations have killed for less not to mention that WL is going against really big players both corporate and governemental.

I believe he used the term "assassinated" to refer to their careers or reputation however, he used that particular word to draw a raised brow. In other words, for drama sakes only. Too bad the supposed "journalist" did not have the guts & integrity of an actual Journalist to follow up on it.

Julian is trying to keep his 15 minutes going. First we have the "We can make a major bank exec resign!" Now it's "People have been assassinated. Put up or shut up, really. If WikiLeaks were anything nmore than a personality cult, Assange would queitly go about the business of leaking stuff rather than posturing obver what he "could" do. Do it, or leave it to someone not so interested in the limelight and sleeping with everyone he can.
