Many Arab officials have close CIA links: Assange

From The Peninsula

DOHA: Top officials in several Arab countries have close links with the CIA, and many officials keep visiting US embassies in their respective countries voluntarily to establish links with this key US intelligence agency, says Julian Assange, founder of the whistle-blowing website, WikiLeaks.

“These officials are spies for the US in their countries,” Assange told Al Jazeera Arabic channel in an interview yesterday.

The interviewer, Ahmed Mansour, said at the start of the interview which was a continuation of last week’s interface, that Assange had even shown him the files that contained the names of some top Arab officials with alleged links with the CIA.

Assange or Mansour, however, didn’t disclose the names of these officials. The WikiLeaks founder said he feared he could be killed but added that there were 2,000 websites that were ready to publish the remaining files that are in possession of WikiLeaks after “he has been done away with”.

“If I am killed or detained for a long time, there are 2,000 websites ready to publish the remaining files. We have protected these websites through very safe passwords,” said Assange.

Currently, his whistle-blowing website is exposing files in a ‘responsible’ manner, he claimed. “But if I am forced we could go to the extreme and expose each and every file that we have access to,” thundered the WikiLeaks founder. “We must protect our sources at whatever cost. This is our sincere concern.”

Some Arab countries even have torture houses where Washington regularly sends ‘suspects’ for ‘interrogation and torture’, he said.

  1. he could expose all the files in creation and it wouldn't make a whit of difference. what a fucking drama queen! "if i am killed" indeed. he certainly is richly deserving of death but not for anything else than being the controlled CIA sock puppet provocateur par excellence he is. what a nauseating play actor reeking of compromising filth. just ask Bradley Manning whom he helped hang out to dry and twist tortuously in the wind while this anemic twit signs a million dollar book contract.what could be more obvious. a plague upon him and all the credulous fools who rally to this fucking sheep dipped honey pot.
