Assange Calls For Obama's Resignation If Confirmed President Approved UN Spy Ring

Tyler Durden's picture


When we first heard of the latest Wikileaks "cablegate" fiasco, we speculated that Hillary Clinton may be forced to resign for what is rapidly becoming the biggest crisis for US foreign policy since the Bay of Pigs. Today, in an interview with Spanish El Pais, Julian Assange goes one better and says that if it is proven that he approved the spying on UN officials, then Obama should resign. As a reminder as per one of the released cables, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton
asked for UN personnel's telephones, emails, credit card details and
frequent flier numbers. Let's recall that Nixon resigned to avoid impeachment under somewhat comparable circumstances. The only difference is that back then Woodward and Berstein were not on the receiving end of what is becoming an endless barrage of death threats for doing their journalistic duty. This time around, the "deep throat" is the target of an international witch hunt, where however is moot: the early attempt by the like of Joe Lieberman to censor the internet is doomed from the beginning. However, it does show that in the past 40 years little has changed at the top echelons of power when the sordid truth of "Standard Operating Procedures" are revealed. And, unfortunately, things have only gotten worse. Also, keep in mind that Wikileaks has so far released only a small fraction of the 250,000 cables that will ultimately be declassified by Wiki. One wonders just how long the world can maintain the damage control before foreign relations between both friends and enemies are terminally frayed.

More from AFP:

"The whole chain of command who was aware of this order, and approved it, must resign if the US is to be seen to be a credible nation that obeys the rule of law. The order is so serious it may well have been put to the president for approval," Julian Assange told Spanish daily El Pais.

"Obama must answer what he knew about this illegal order and when. If he refuses to answer or there is evidence he approved of these actions, he must resign," he added during an Internet chat interview published online.

WikiLeaks threw US diplomacy into chaos when it started releasing more than 250,000 classified State Department cables on November 28, creating an international firestorm as American diplomats' private assessments of foreign leaders and politics have been publicly aired.

According to one of the documents, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton asked for UN personnel's telephones, emails, credit card details and frequent flier numbers.

The United States and other governments said the release of the documents broke their laws.

Assange gave the interview to El Pais on Saturday from an undisclosed location. The 39-year-old Australian is believed to be in Britain, and a report said he could be arrested this week.

To be sure, life for Wikileaks over the weekend has gotten progressively more difficult: first Paypal rolled over, and agreed to stop all Wikileaks transactions, and now even the site's last bastion: it's Swiss hosted site, is intermittently off and on.

He said WikiLeaks had "dozens" of people who were helping the organisation deal with the cyber-attack and set up the mirror websites "but it takes a lot of time for us to manage the process".

"We are automating that process and will soon have hundreds. If there is a battle between the US military and the preservation of History, we have insured History will win."

Assange said he and others who work for WikiLeaks had received "hundreds" of "specific" death threats from "US military militants".

Oddly enough, despite broad speculation that the British authorities are well aware of where Assange is located, his arrest has so far been elusive, making many wonder just what is contained in the 1.4 gigabyte file floating in torrentspace, which is considered to be Assange's prison insurance...

bank guy in Brussels's picture

Expanded list - Points favouring that Wikileaks is a fraud of US intelligence agencies with Mossad, as noted on the web:

- Board members of Wikileaks from CIA-entities, including ones tied to CIA-Google contracts and funding, and to CIA's front NGO 'National Endowment for Democracy'

- Thrust of Wikileaks revelations supporting US war initiatives against Iran and for military intervention against Pakistan, trying to make Lebanese distrust and fear each other, slander of independent Al Jazeera news, other US & Israeli larger objectives

- Israeli Prime Minister happy about Wikileaks in effect supporting war in Middle East, and Julian Assange praises the Israeli Prime Minister

- Wikileaks has something like € 1 million in bank, € 200,000 annual budget, supposedly from small 'donations' via PayPal etc. ... but bigger sweetheart funding likely behind it

- Wikileaks website doesn't reflect million-in-assets organisation, many have done much more with much less

- One of Julian Assange's lawyers is also lawyer for US Associated Press, giant US-gov't linked corporate media agency, owned by major US media owned by ruling US oligarch families

- With € 1 million in assets, a small army of international lawyers, and Assange and friends 'expert computer hackers' ... they sign up for US-based internet services, just like they are a bunch of newbies on Facebook

- With all his great international legal team, Assange chooses to hang out in Britain, which has a uniquely corrupt fascist extradition treaty with the US, whereby the UK will hand anyone over to the US without evidence or probable cause, just because the US requests it ... The US gov't can fabricate charges against anyone in 5 minutes ... yet nothing is filed against Assange, even though the US could have him, just by simply asking their UK best buddies

- One of Wikileaks site names registered by Jimmy Wales founder of Wikipedia, notorious CIA-agent disinfo site (proven in Wired news etc.), Wales himself part of CIA-linked CFR (Council on Foreign Relations) major US gov't policy tool for oligarchs & establishment. Jimmy Wales is also a close personal friend of President of Israel Shimon Peres, even recently attending an intimate birthday party for him.

- Wikileaks has unusual super good access to corporate media, NY Times and UK Guardian, both shills - mouthpieces for US and UK governments and establishment, media with fake 'progressive' image but refusing to carry much anti-gov't reporting, however nice open door for Wikileaks

- Julian Assange hostile to other progressive revelations, Assange hostile to questioning about US 11 Sept for example

- Julian Assange childhood troubled, under tutelage of parental figures involved with CIA-mind-control-experiment-type application of severely mind-altering drugs upon children

- Assange has previously used internet code name 'Mendax', ancient Latin word for 'liar'

- Weird situation with Assange and Swedish girls, one of them previously published web treatise on how to get revenge on ex-boyfriend re false accusations, one of them has departed for Israel ...

- Was it time to put some 'heat' on Assange because too many people were beginning to write about the CIA-Wikileaks connections?

- Was it time to make it look like Wikileaks is anti-US, to cover for the fact it is a US intel operation?

- The best lies are those that mix some truth with the lies, and the US gov't, has little problem with a further expansion of the well-known fact it is a torturing, murdering, killing-of-innocents regime. A few more Iraq and Afghanistan war atrocities exposed, are a small price to pay for:
--- A world-class media manipulation project to help sponsor more upcoming wars, and
--- Enabling the US to achieve greater dominance over internet content, and
--- Enlisting other Western governments in US-led global efforts of internet censorship, as has already occurred thanks to Wikileaks.

Just sayin' ....

Video « Is Wikileaks a CIA Operation? », speaking of some of the above on YouTube:

Mon, 12/06/2010 - 04:03 | 781457's picture

And we're supposed to believe that "bank guy in Brussels" has no questionable connections? Belgian waffles are always served at CIA Christmas parties (they go great with single malt Scotch) -- need I say more?

And we're supposed to go along with Joe Lieberman and Sarah Palin (who wears an Israel flag pin) when they trash Assange. All makes perfect sense.

Or, does it seem that some people are going to incredible lengths to discredit a man who has until now done nothing but leak secrets from governments across the globe. If calling him a terrorist doesn't work call him a rapist. If calling him a rapist doesn't work call him an Israeli spy. I really can't imagine what the next claim will be.

either way you in the US are losing the battle.

A) your industrial and military complex's security technology is even worse than expected not being able to keep these secrets. (no doubt the new TSA regs sit all the better with Joe Public now the whole the country is thrown bare ass naked into the international media)


B) your industrial and military complex is even worse than expected and is willing to bring shame to your entire nation by exposing confidential correspondence from nearly all of its allies in order to justify invading another sovereign state (not that I think Iran should be armed with that kind of gear) and thereby creating an ideal scenario to oust the (A) the only non-white leader you've had and (B) only leader you have had in a long time that looks outside your shores. Not saying your domestic politics have improved since "Change you can believe in" but then again he had nothing to work with from the beginning so is at least only partially responsible.

Anyone so wholeheartedly believing the promises of a politician regardless of race, colour or creed is a knobhead. They are all crooked, why is this one any different.

If Assange can produce a list of all the "donations", official and under the table provided to congress then it is clear he isn't some super triple agent James Bond but of course, James Bond would have killed him before that could happen.

HE wants Obama to resign... Yeahh. Apply for Citizenship and Vote like the rest of us.

I think he wants people who want Obama out to mirror his website.

I dont like BO but I don't see him resigning over some BS like this.

I can't wait to see the big red circles on the "Threat Map" that the spooks throw up in front of the polytricksters after this shit is over.

i agree. one of the biggest tragedies in the us is the almost totalitarian like obedience to the pentagon/national defense idea. of course the manipulators know that, so they just keep playing whatever games, saying this or that about national defense, and the people eat it up.

then one day something blows up, a president's head, or maybe a couple towers. who did it? oh the russians, or maybe these other evil guys from the middle east...ah ok, lets fight some more wars...and the game continues with so many little gi joes out there waving the red, white and blue. 

unfortunately the destructive threatening element, is right there, buried among all the patriotism. who watches the watchers?

Presumably, one of those national things we would like to secure is the the freedom of the printing press and freedom of speech.

Is it Wikileaks who put that at risk or the actions of the state department? Everyone touched by this who doesn't resign is putting our national security at risk and putting themselves ahead of the nation they claim to serve.

Wikileaks, like terrorism, is a new reality. We can either adjust to the new paradigm and use it to our advantage diplomatically or go the way of the calvary charge.

Addressed what? No, you didn't. You have spent more time bickering than presenting information.

Pay attention: when Paul points out the absurdity of leveling treason charges against a non-citizen it doesn't imply backing. It pathetic reporting.

The soap I use is from Nablus and it looks much like the package on this page:

I got the soap from Riad Hamad at the Palestine Childrens Welfare Fund. He was a good, good man but now he's gone.

I've got to find another source for the soap. It's the only thing that will keep my hands from cracking in the winter. Good stuff. I highly recommend.

As for the blog, it's just one project among hundreds. I do enjoy making the occasional post, however. Lew Rockwell has even published one or two things from it. So that's nice.

The WikiLeaks story is all over the main stream media. Just in time for European debt crisis. What a nice distraction with nothing serious revealed. Do any of those files contain anything of substance on Rothchilds' involvement in politics, for example? I think not.


Why not release everything right away to help bring down the New World Order ASAP. Why announce it months in advance and leak the documents little by little every day. Why do the WikiLeaks staff have to read them all and filter out before releasing.

Sun, 12/05/2010 - 20:25 | 780382's picture

Wikileaks is making an effort to redact names of individuals who may come to physical harm if their names become known. That's one reason why they can't dump all the documents at once. That's not only morally and ethically sound but it helps Assange's ethos.

I found the following information to be of some import not only because it details the actions behind an ongoing crime but also because it's a leak which will appeal to the right wing while most of the war related cables would appeal to the left wing. There's something in those leaks for everybody.

I'm liking this Assange fellow more everyday. Now he's calling for Obama to resign? Think I'll fix him a cup of tea and in the meantime, don't tread on Julian.

I'm leaning in the direction of believing that Assange is on the level. No reason to believe otherwise at this time.

Write your politicians.  Ask them where they stand?  For sanctioned killings of a journalist trying to disseminate the truth about a corrupt government or for the First Amendment and transparency in government?

If you'd calm down and think and speak more clearly you would be better understood. We were discussing Wikileaks, you opposed Assange and I supported him. The next step was your assertion that I wanted war with Iran. I believed that your statement was part of the ongoing conversation and that it fit in line with that continuing conversation. I did not realize that you suddenly brought up Iran for no apparent reason.

What could possibly make you think I favor war with Iran? And what does that have to do with our conversation about Julian Assange?

Sun, 12/05/2010 - 23:46 | 781100's picture

I didn't read past the second line of your post below because it begins with an incorrect premise. Despite your assertion to the contrary the truth is that Wikileaks has published documents from other nations going back several years.

Why do you and so many others just assume that Wikileaks only published US documents?

Mon, 12/06/2010 - 00:10 | 781157 Thanatos

Because I don't see 90+ % of the documents released being other than US.

Mon, 12/06/2010 - 00:27 | 781182's picture

First you said:

Why are ONLY US Governemt documents being released?

Does WL not get files from other Governments?

Now you say that you believe that 10% of the documents published by Wikileaks are from governments other than the US. Where did you get that figure? I don't believe that you have ever even looked for documents from other nations published by Wikileaks. They used to be available here:

But of course that no longer works because of the DOS attacks against the site.

I will reiterate my question -- why did you assume that "WL (does) not get files from other Governments?" When I called you on the error why did you make up the figure of 90% US documents out of thin air. I don't mind debating this subject with you and with others but it seems pointless to discuss a topic with people who just make things up and when they are shown their error go on to make up something else.

Your'e right about my rough estimate. But I never said published.

They recieve a small amount of upload from FGs but nothing compared to US.

I never read any WL trash because I don't care for stale gossip about obvious criminals.

There isn't any "Proof" of anything in these files that means anything significant to a criminal prosecution for anyone.

The whole WL production is being managed like an episode of Dancing with the stars.

Look, I understand your frustration and confusion about the material being released, but Wikileaks can only release material they have been given by the whistleblowers after the material has been corroborated (And names removed to protect the innocent). I can imagine that it must be a very difficult task given the size and complexity, as well as  safeguarding against the chance that the intelligence services will try to fake an upload with deliberately false information to discredit Wikileaks on publication. Even so, it is a tiny fraction of a tiny fraction of the material in storage at the Pentagon to which nobody of good conscience has access.


I think Wikileaks has incredibly high standards in journalistic integrity, and I would trust them over any other source of news media. After all, the materials published are not heresay, guesses, or rumours, but sourced from the perpetrator's own hands, in their own words. 


It is to ridiculous assume that you will see everything you ever wanted to see in the Wiki releases. Try not to have high expectations, but if we ever have a high-ranking leak, we may finally find out the truth and lay all our restless ghosts to rest.

--Rpost from other WL thread sorry--

I am on the fence with this.

At every turn my gut tells me this is not what it seems to be.

Why are ONLY US Governemt documents being released?

Does WL not get files from other Governments?

Are they not as "incriminating" as the US documents?

The MSM sure seems to have a hard on for this story... Aren't they supposed to be bombarding me with Kim Kardashians under-age sex affairs? Or Hulk Hogan's latest comeback?

None of these documents contain info that would surprise anyone who has been paying attention to events in the world, yet they are "classified".

No REAL classified documentation that would really be harmful to the USG has been released that I can see.

The more I think about it, the more it seems to smell.

What is the point?

Assange admits he doesn't even know why he is doing it when asked?

For someone who values Privacy and Anonymity enough to not have a home, Assange sure is in my face on the TV and Web a whole bunch, we know more about what he is doing than our own President.

Are they trying to make him a hero?

Are they trying to make a figure head that all malcontents magnetically attract to?

It would make "Malcontent Cleanup Operations" soooo much more efficient.

This is my fear.

They will show a map of all the nodes that download this shit in the US and claim that they NEED to slap MEGA FILTERS, CLAMPS, PROBES, SPLITTERS, ETC. on the networks for National Security purposes. This won't be done in some public hearing. It will just happen.

All this will be accomplished because sheeple like gossip.

Well go ahead and dl that shit. You will end up being force fed CNBC on every channel before you know it.

I could put "Classified" on a 2 year old TV Guide and people will act like childeren trying to get a peek at whats inside.

That is exactly what is happening.

I was a WL believer for the last few years but now I know something is really, really wrong with this.




Ok.. Just saw the WL/Assange fiasco on CNBC Asia. It has officially Jumped The Shark.

This is like a foot soldier calling for Ulysses S. Grant to resign during the Appomattox campaign of 1865.

President Obama is keeping a steady hand on the till of world affairs. Julian Assange is acting like an anarchist gossip merchant.

I repeat...

Some things must remain private and confidential. In any organisation whether it be a corporation, government, defence force or charity there is a hierarchy of awareness and responsibility. Certain people are invested with executive decision making. Obviously these people should be employed on merit. Pure anarchic openness of all information sources leads to mass confusion, as people are unable to prioritise and process the data. A happy child trusts his parents to make good decisions on his/her behalf. That is why we need command and control structures in place around the world. When people feel that their confidences can be betrayed at the click of a mouse they are loathe risking authentic connections with others. I'm sure that Mr.Assange and his associates have a problem with the word "sovereignty". We actually need more respect for intellectual property and healthy boundaries everywhere right now, not less.

That only makes sense if you support current power structures that cause war and poverty. I guess I understand your POV at least.

Secrecy is anathema to freedom. Really though humanity is at the brink of much larger issues than Assagne or Clinton or Obama or Iran or pretty much anything most folks talk about. It's evolve or die time. We either will or we won't, the only hope is that the building crisis acts as a catalyst for evolutionary change of the human mind and spirit. Anything less is a death sentence whether tomorrow or 30 years from now.

Don't get hung up on the messengers. We've done that and crucified them in the past...literally. Or turned them into fat statues further East forgetting the teaching in our obsession with the teacher. Just how I see it.

Much more so than is being given credit for.

It will all become clear in time.

Then people will be aghast as they realize they are the ones who trampled their own freedoms.

The PTB just disguised freedom as something it wasn't and got everyone to trample upon it.

When you are telling the Grand kids about ZH and the WWW as it was before the "Clamps" were emplaced it will be crystal clear.

Oh, well, if "you repeat", then we had better sit up and take notice.

Fuck you and your idiotic child-parent analogy.  You may be a child (obviously), but the rest of us out here aren't.  Morons like you are what allow states throughout the world to become the tyrannies they are.  The best thing that could happen to you, for all the rest of us, is if everybody like you were "leaked".  As in, leaky.  As in, well you figure it out, douche-bag.  Although I suspect you are too stupid.

I went to the post just to see what all the chatter was about, and the first words caught my eye were " a happy child trusts his parents..."  I 'bout fell outa my chair; he didn't really say that did he? I'm gonna faint. OK, well, I guess I'll just tra-la-la over to mamby-pamby land where maybe I can get some self-confidence for me, me jack-wagon! And skip home saying "I'm a happy boy, I'm a happy boy......."

Fsck that garbage!  At any time, any of these so-called diplomats coulda used some (even rudimentary!) cryptography, and prevented the only accused leaker of this info from even knowing what he was looking at!  The MSM needs to remove their craniums from their rectums!

You do make a valid point although those in power so often abuse their positions or have agendas that differ from the public so how do we achieve the appropriate checks and balances?

Also, please explain which laws JA broke because he's being treated as a law breaker but I have yet to see anyone clearly and concisely describe the laws he violated.

Gee, who is the wiser? Adam Neira or Thomas Jefferson?

"There is not a truth existing which I fear... or would wish unknown to the whole world." - Thomas Jefferson

I go with Jefferson, Neira appears to be a toady of the state.
