assange saga v.VIII-- $1.5M book deal, kenya assassinations

Rate: 0 Flag

hi all. latest Julian Assange news.

  • more info on the "assassinations" related to wikileaks, assange was presumably referring to kenya writers/leakers who attempted to publicize kenyan police corruption on wikileaks. apparently shot by a quasi-police hit team, March 2009.
  • "open letter to those inciting murder on julian assange" arguing its a criminal offense in most civilized countries
  • assange signed a book deal for $1.5M, he says partly to help defray his legal costs.
  • assange paid about 2/3 of wikileaks budget in salary, it comes out to about $90K/yr. I presume he spends a *lot* of that on travel expenses
  • a wired editor replies to criticism about not publishing full chat logs of manning/lamo, which glenn greenwald of open salon feels might help exculpate manning.
  • the reporter he had a falling out with, nick davies responds to criticism. asserts that his article "proves" that the women are not involved in an intelligence-agency sponsored "honeytrap" without further comment [huh?]. (uh nick, I dont see the proof of that at all.)
  • famous pentagon paper lawyer floyd abrams criticises wikileaks. rebuttal by jack shafer in slate
  • zionist pro-israeli group insists wikileaks is spreading conspiracy theories about israel.
  • son of the rosenbergs comes out against the use/dangerous vagueness or generality of the espionage act
  • commentary on the decision by apple & other corporations to cut off links to wikileaks
  • competing site cryptome writes obituary for wikileaks
  • a good analysis on the "neocorporatist" agenda gunning for wikileaks.
  • fbi raids 4chan site implicated in wikileaks-related DDoS attack on paypal. wikileaks backers launch DDoS attack on Zimbabwe web sites over threat to sue over wikileaks revelations.
