UNSEALED AFFIDAVIT TRIES TO PUT WIKILEAKS IN CAHOOTS WITH THE TALIBAN, BIN LADEN | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

UNSEALED AFFIDAVIT TRIES TO PUT WIKILEAKS IN CAHOOTS WITH THE TALIBAN, BIN LADEN

On Monday a federal judge in Virginia unsealed the original 2017 affidavit and criminal complaint on which Assange's extradition request to the US is based, offering new details including chat logs between Assange and former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea (then Bradley) Manning, which attempt to support a single count of “conspiracy to commit computer intrusion” which may or may not have succeeded.

The US alleges Assange actively sought for and encouraged Manning to crack a password to access classified information on a Defense Department network; the affidavit claims details related to this charge, for instance chat log discussions between the pair over how to crack a password, though the affidavit notes that "it remains unknown whether Manning and Assange were successful in cracking the password," related to the conspiracy charge.

Concerning a potential extradition to the US, “probable cause” is cited to be the hundreds of messages sent between Manning and Assange on the Jabber platform. The argument is that Assange and Manning understood that it “would cause injury to the United States,” especially with US forces active on the ground in Afghanistan.

But on this point of whether the leaks did actual harm and damage to US efforts, the document is left reaching, trying to spin and insinuate a narrative that puts WikiLeaks and terrorist groups like the Taliban and al-Qaeda in cahoots.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sorry folks, but the US Department of Justice (now known as just-US!!)has well and truly jumped the proverbial shark on this one.

And the attempt to describe "collusion" between Wikileaks, the Taliban and Al-Qaeda working together?!? Please, don't get me started!!

I am hoping and praying that Assange has an absolute "dream team" working for him, to get these charges dropped.
