WikiLeaks Founder: We Have Enough Information To Make An Exec At A Major Bank Resign


www.infowars.com

An upcoming data dump by WikiLeaks will be damaging enough that an executive at a major American bank will resign, the organization’s founder Julian Assange told the U.K.’s Times in a recent interview.Speculation has swirled that WikiLeaks may be targeting Bank of America in its next leak, which Assange said in a Forbes interview will target at least one major bank. In a 2009 Computer World interview, Assange said that he had a 5 GB hard drive from a Bank of America executive. The bank recently In an interview with the Times, Assange said: “We don’t want the bank to suffer unless it’

So what do you think? Does Assange have the goods or no? Either way I believe if he does not much will happen. Most likely, they'll get a slap on the wrist, just so they ( USG ) can save face with the people.
But regardless, it should be interesting non-the less.


On a side note: Inside the Securities and Exchange Commission, the organization is bracing for a public outcry, according to people who have recently spoken with some high-ranking officials about the prospect of a WikiLeaks release of bank documents.

Awwwwwww BS! If he had information he would have released it. And if he does and he doesn't release it, that tells us something completely different about this Assange character, now wouldn't it!?

I believe he does. He has already proved his word or threats depending what your mindset is regarding WLs, that he has what he says. But if he does not produce, his crediability with believers in what he does will diminish. personally speaking I hope he has information to hit the banks and business crooks hard.

Oooohhhhh! A whole single bank executive! Maybe he can also get a drive - thru teller or a janitor to go down with this enormous revelation.

I have to say that I've been pretty much underwhelmed by the whole wikileaks thing.

I can't really recall a single disclosure that's made me raise my eyebrows.

Probably will just end up being swept under the carpet like all the other cables so far. None of the cables have received much coverage at all in the MSM. Not really heard of any great implications of any cables either, at least linked to positive change, as of yet.

The whole Julian Assange media sideshow is getting slightly tedious, though. Instead of just promising "poison pills", hyping up future cables and so on, can't they just realise that actions speak louder than words. The media have focussed far more on the man himself and his legal plight than anything of actual substance. With tactics like this, I fear wikileaks are playing perfectly into the hands of those who want these cables kept under wraps.

One thing at least seems certain, Julian seems more bothered about discussing his legal plight, rather than the actual contents of the leaks (maybe that isn't the case, but the way it's going, it is and has been incredibly easy for the media to portray it like that). His attitude concerning this is understandable, however, a man in his position should realise it is counter-productive, and all it is doing is providing the media with a distraction from any damning information released.

I thought Assange/WL had originally stated they had a leak that would take down/damage an American bank and not just an executive of an American Bank. Wasn't it just recently that WL tweeted something about moving your money from BofA so it would be 'safe'? If the only damage can be done to a bank is taking down even the CEO that seems, well, rather weak.

I would have to say I agree with your stance. I've read article's that WL was just a government run coup. To get the attention of the people elsewhere, while sinister actions occur beneath the line. Who knows though?

IMHO wikileaks is a psyop against this administration by the CIA and Assange is simply an asset. The whole thing is a warning shot to let the admin know who's in charge and what can happen if they don't play along. Does anyone else find it the least bit curious that all of the "Leaked" info is so pedestrian?

People like you make me raise my eyebrows. WL has an astounding record of realeasing leaks that are huge. Even in this cable issue the very first leaks instantly showed corruption and criminal activity. Seriously what you wan't? Would you be happy if they'd release JFK assasination docs? How about secret reptilian mind control agenda or santa clause secret hideout for the rest of the year? What is it that would make you happy?

Thank you for illustrating my point perfectly. That is exactly what is wrong with this world. People don't care untill something bites their own ass. It doesn't matter if the world is dominated by corrupt criminals. It doesn't matter that freedoms are getting screwed left and right. It doesn't matter that modern news media is nothing but paid propaganda. Nothing matters untill it hurts you specifically.

i never said it doesn't matter.

i just dont care. So far all they have told me are things that i already knew.

i cannot speak for everybody, but im pretty sure a good chunk of people feel the same way.

if the information they have presented has somehow enlightened you to world corruption, then great.

ill drink to that.

What I would like to see is something that is materially actionable, in that it would immediately shift the way people organize their thoughts about their communities, their governments and their lives in general.

The notion that bank executives are corrupt is hardly a revelation, nor is the idea that diplomats speak in less than glowing terms about their international counterparts. Is it earthshattering to learn that barack obama is a corrupt slickster that uses threats and bribery to force his agenda? Hardly. Are our internal cognitive and emotional schema altered when we see video US military forces in what appears (at least initially) to be a hairtrigger livefire operation that kills civilians? Not a chance.

What would be interesting enough to be cause to raise eyebrows for most people? Hmmm. How about this...videotape images, audio recording and verified eyewitness testimony that our "leaders" - local, state, national, international - were actually practicing satanists who regularly and in an organized way conducted pedophilic orgies with kidnapped children, and then offered blood sacrifices in honor of their their dark lords in exchange for their wealth and power? Documentation that the people who have repeatedly called themselves "public servants" thrive on the infliction of deception, pain, terror, death on truly innocent people who trust them?

This is the kind of stuff that I believe many here on ATS consider. This is the kind of disclosure that I believe would motivate your rank-and-file Joe Schmuck to get off his couch, put down his beer, and go pick up the nearest blunt heavy object and go find those "leaders". I think that this kind of data is out there. Maybe not so dramatic or wacky, but I think there are people out there who are truly evil.

Wikileaks slow drip of low level ignorance and bureaucratic stupidity ain't gonna cut it. Most of us know there is more out there, and we know that the vast majority of people "in charge" are evil scumbags.

all staged

a big show for the sheeple and the conspiracy fanatics with plenty of episodes,

a lot of blah blah blah, but no content (yet at least, prove me wrong and show something on israel julian)

as secondary objectives we could think of : an official reason to put the web under control of the state? entertainment to keep the sheeple distracted from the real deal ? dividing the conspiracy front between the followers and the skeptics ? removing those agents and executives reluctant to follow some agenda ?

however it's hard to see the primary objectives of the operation yet;

anyway, just a perspective leading to the 3 trillions $ (i've stopped counting at 3) question : what's the hidden agenda of those protecting assange and allowing msm to talk about wikileaks ?

It will come to naught. The focus now is so squarely on Julian that the info he releases will be brushed aside. The cables caused no up roar and quickly disappeared from the public mind. This info will do the same. Especially when somebody "official" comes out and says, "this information is from 2009. We have addresed these issues and have began working with the Federal Reserve and SEC to ensure that these types of oversights don't become an issue in the future." The people will be pacified and life will go on.

Never overestimate the average American.

1)Actually the only thing BS is your reason and logic.

2)Google what insurance means

3) He will release it when the time is right . You dont like his rules ? Then go back on MSM lap .

4)It tells us this Assange character taking as many precautions as he can . For his safety , HIs staff , the future of wiki leaks , future of internet censorship , and the future of any leaks.

5) Back in your hole now troll.

here's a snippet from 2007 article prior to the launch of the site:


uk.reuters.com

...However, Wikileaks says it wants to be a "central clearing house" for such leaks. And, taking to new heights the current Web vogue for crowd-sourcing -- encouraging users to contribute -- it says it will take a "democratic" approach to verifying the information.
Anyone will be able to comment on the importance -- and judge the authenticity -- of the whistle-blowers' submissions.
"Instead of a couple of academic specialists, Wikileaks will provide a forum for the entire global community to examine any document," it says...


Flash forward to now, from my observations, their approach now seems to defy what they professed in 2007.

Now, WL holds onto the information, vetting some through handpicked newspapers, creating insurance deals, and teasing folks with what may be released.

It is a far cry from what the adverted to be prior to launch, yet the blind only defend their practices and Assange.

If WL is what it claims to be, there would be no vetting, no teasing and no insurance.. just the release of files and let the

entire global community to examine any _/i]


Anything less is dishonest, and reeks of corruption IMO.
