At the UK Telegraph, on 13 December 2010, Andrew Gilligan, who blew the whistle on the Iraq dodgy dossier, now blows the whistle on Julian Assange.

Julian Assange Wined and Dined at U.S. Embassy

According to Andrew Gilligan:

Less than a year ago, Assange was entertained at the US ambassador's residence in Reykjavik, Iceland.

Assange chatted with Sam Watson, the embassy's deputy chief of mission.

"He certainly had fun at the party," said Birgitta Jonsdottir, an Icelandic MP and former activist in WikiLeaks.

WikiLeaks' Icelandic base is known as "the bunker."

Comments from Telegraph readers:

1. We have Cass Sunstein writing a Time magazine article promoting WikiLeaks, then he writes an academic article about Cognitive Infiltration to undermine "conspiracy theories" and then we have Assange pretend 911 was not a staged event which everyone with a brain knows it was foster the war on terror.

You have John Young who started the first WikiLeaks link and runs Cryptome saying that WikiLeaks is part of a CIA/Soros operation to take control of the internet...

2. The CIA is doing a bit of social engineering using a 'pseudo-gang' called WikiLeaks and the proles are eating it up while the party members indulge in their 2 minutes hate and the inner party sleeps well at night.

3. Of course Julian Assange went to the embassy function and spent time with the deputy chief of mission; he has to meet his CIA handler somewhere!


"On 5th October, 1986, a Sandinista patrol in Nicaragua shot down a C-123K cargo plane that was supplying the Contras. That night Felix Rodriguez made a telephone call to the office of George H. W. Bush. He told Bush aide, Samuel Watson, that the C-123k aircraft had gone missing." (Cached) This may not be the same Sam Watson.

The man that Assange may be staying with over Xmas - Vaughn Lockhart Smith - has quite an illustrious right-wing history (even more so than Jemima Goldsmith). His family go back to Count James Lockhart, whose daughter Maria married John Smith of Ellingham Hall. Ellingham is where Assange will be staying. James was also in the Grenadier Guards.

His father and grandfather also have reputable military histories - as befits anybody entering Mi6.

(see Lt.Col. Henry Lockhart Smith - in Landed Gentry)

Interesting to see Litvineko and Boris Berezovsky as past members of Vaughn's Frontline Club.

Not a bad way of controlling conflict coverage, is it?

Count James Lockhart:

Is he with or just watching Julian?
