Going out with C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
Various people around the globe are feeling rather peeved at Wikileaks following the revelations featured in Daniel Domscheit-Berg's recently published book "Inside Wikileaks".
Alan Taylor, admin of PGPboard.com, suggests Assange is peddling snake oil, "bullsh**ting gullible media outlets with techno-babble and downright lies in order to serve their own interests," referring to the reaction of a certain Maria Technosux who has posted various inconsistencies and lies uttered by Wikileakers.
The disappointment and outrage vented about the past behaviour of Wikileaks and the current antics of Julian Assange are thoroughly understandable. After all, Daniel Domscheit-Berg admits lying about the capabilities and, most importantly, the security of Wikileaks.
Private Eye editor Ian Hislop has written that he received a rambling phone call from Wikileak's boss Julian Assange, claiming that British journalists, including the editor of The Guardian, were engaged in a Jewish-led conspiracy to smear WikiLeaks. The Guardian reports on it here.
Hislop said that Assange was especially angry about a Private Eye report that Israel Shamir was a Holocaust denier, and complained the article was part of a campaign by Jewish reporters in London to smear WikiLeaks.
Assange told Hislop he should be ashamed of himself for joining in the international conspiracy to smear WikiLeaks.
He claimed that the article was an obvious attempt to deprive him and his organisation of Jewish support and donations.He really is just disgusting.
