Iceland Interior Minister Reveals Plot By Obama Administration "To Frame Julian Assange"

Tyler Durden's picture

Back in October we noted a scheme, linked to the Hillary Clinton campaign, to tie Julian Assange and WikiLeaks to a pedophilia ring (see "Hillary Clinton Linked To Mysterious Front Associated with Julian Assange Pedophile Smear").  Of course, the scheme was revealed amid daily dumps by WikiLeaks of John Podesta's emails leaving the Clintons, and their many "friends in high places", scrambling for anyway possible to shut Assange down.


Therefore, it should probably come as no surprise that the former Interior Minister of Iceland, Ogmundur Jonasson, has now come forward to reveal details of a 2011 plot by the Obama administration to frame Julian Assange.  According to a report from RT, the U.S. first contacted Icelandic authorities in June 2011 to offer "help" in fending off hackers that the U.S. said were looking to destroy software systems in the country.  Jonasson was initially "suspicious" of the U.S. offer to help, suspicions which he said were confirmed later in the summer of 2011 when a "planeload of FBI agents" showed up in Iceland seeking support in an effort to "frame Julian Assange and Wikileaks."

In June 2011, Obama administration implied to Iceland's authorities they had knowledge of hackers wanting to destroy software systems in the country, and offered help, then-Interior Minister Ogmundur Jonasson, said in an interview with the Katoikos publication.


However, Jonasson said he instantly became “suspicious” of the US good intentions, “well aware that a helping hand might easily become a manipulating hand.”


Later in the summer 2011, the US “sent a planeload of FBI agents to Iceland seeking our cooperation in what I understood as an operation set up to frame Julian Assange and WikiLeaks,” Jonasson said.


Icelanders seemed like a tough nut to crack, though.




Jonasson ultimately refused cooperation with U.S. efforts and sent the FBI agents home saying that if he had to choose sides he "would be on the side of WikiLeaks."

“Since they had not been authorized by the Icelandic authorities to
carry out police work in Iceland and since a crack-down on WikiLeaks was
not on my agenda, to say the least, I ordered that all
cooperation with them be promptly terminated and I also made it clear
that they should cease all activities in Iceland immediately,”
the politician said.


“If I had to take sides with either WikiLeaks or the FBI or CIA, I would have no difficulty in choosing: I would be on the side of WikiLeaks,” he said.


Jónasson went on to discuss other whistleblowers like Edward Snowden: the Althing, the Icelandic parliament, debated whether Snowden should have been granted citizenship, but “there hasn't been political consensus” on the matter.


“Iceland is part of NATO and such a decision would be strongly objected to by the US,” Jonasson said.

Of course, none of this is particularly surprising coming from an administration that wanted to "just drone this guy."

In psychology, they call it "projection".

In everyday life, we call it "being a douche".

They tried to frame Sharyl Attkisson over her pursuit of the truth regarding Fast & Furious and the IRS's "rogue agents" targeting the Tea Party as well.

Because obviously...they hate women ;-)

These inversions you can see. Fake news was the reason she lost? Yes, actually the fake news of the MSM was exposed and contributed to the general sense that we were all being defrauded, by the democrats, during the primary.

The Clintons and the Obamas are such low life slimy people.  I'm so glad that after January they will both be out of our leadership.  It's going to be Murvolus!

Do you guys want to see a perfect example of Echo CHamber Media:

THis guy (Greg Miller   @gregpmiller ) retweeted other alt leftist journalists retweeting his own fake WaPo news shitcle.  His twitter feed propagates the fake narrative that the Ruskies helped elect Trump at least 13 times when I quit reading all the echo chamber fakery.

These guys are in major bubble.  One dipshit alt left NY lawyer actually defended the WaPo saying they were the paper of the people that brought us the pentagon papers and watergate. Obviously not the same WaPo now as it was then.

In my opion the media are fanning the flames of civil war in this nation.  They refuse to accept that Trump will be their president and are encouraging others to do the same. 

Before the Election Soros said Trump will win the Popular vote but Hillary will win the Electoral College and not one effin peep out of the Alt left media about that being unfair. 

Hypocrites to the nth degree. 

We did not need Trump or Putin to tell us our MSM sucks, and they know everyone no longer believes them so they have created a false war against alternative news media. 

Rant Off.

Don't tough Obama since he is a Nobel Peace Prize winner.


So much for the fucking Swedish Academy of Science lately awarding this shit to international terrorists.

Fuck, the misinformed around here are numerous.

Just to clarify- Swedes give all prizes with the exception of peace which are given by the Norwegians.

...and the economics one is not even a real Nobel, just a fake banker bullshit.

If Trump is legit he'd better drain those swamps ASAP because they are also discredited fakes that will try their best to take him down evert chance they get.

One of the sites on the "Fake News" list is Russia Today.  

It is Russia Today which reported this story about the FBI and Obama Administration attempting to frame Assange and Wikileaks.

This makes it clear what the motives of those who decry "fake news" really are.

Them spending so much money on this guy when a bullet is so much cheaper makes me seriously question the validity of this story.  

If Assange was to take a bullet ... no one would do anything.  Sure, there would be lots of hee'ing and haw'ing on line and the Donald Reddit, but apart from that.  Absolutely dick.  What could Ecuador do?  Nothing.  If he is a Russian asset, what would the FSB do?  Nothing.  

This is complete bullshit, imho.

This story is correct. I remeber this quite clearly.

Ögmundur was considered a great hero for doing this. A hero among many spineless politicians in the Parliament.


Ögmundur is a good politician and has always been quite popular.

Sometimes a bit absent minded :)

Fact is; Julian Assange is still missing.
