Swedish Paper: WikiLeaks to Reveal Swedish Foreign Minister Bildt as US ‘Spy’

- Common Dreams staff

WikiLeaks aims to release documents exposing Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt as a US spy, as part of a campaign to stop Sweden from extraditing founder Julian Assange to the United States, according to a Swedish daily.

 Saying it had seen the WikiLeaks documents Expressen reported on Wednesday that WikiLeaks has threatened in an internal memo to publish a diplomatic cable ‘where Sweden Foreign Minister Carl Bildt is shown to have been an informant for the United States since the 1970s.’

They report: “According to WikiLeaks, Bildt’s original contact is political consultant Karl Rove, a former adviser to President George W. Bush, and someone who Bildt has openly referred to as “an old friend”.”

Stockholm’s The Local, Swedish news in English, reports:

[...] “This is going to hurt Sweden more than the debate about the Mohammad cartoons,” a source with knowledge of the matter told Expressen.

While WikiLeaks spokesperson Kristinn Hrafnsson refused to comment on the details of the report about Bildt, she told Expressen “it’s going to be released soon”. [...]

Feds Withholding Evidence Favorable to Bradley Manning, Lawyer Charges:  The civilian lawyer for Bradley Manning, the Army private who allegedly leaked tens of thousands of classified U.S. government documents to WikiLeaks, is seeking to question the severity of the leak by requesting the government’s own internal damage assessments that reportedly contradict statements that Manning irreparably damaged national security.

Don´´t like hearing the truth?


The corporations and banks, currently being protested by the Occupy
Wall St. movement, have launched a financial blockade on the
whistle-blower website, WikiLeaks.

The corporations and banks, apparently, don’t like the rabble
hearing the truth. Especially if it’s about them or the the
diplomats they own.

WikiLeaks is going to stop publishing secrets and may go dark
all together with no funds to continue operations due to the
blockade.

Two New Books


The Unauthorized AutobiographyJulian Assange Scottish publisher Canongate approached Wikileaks editor-in-chief Julian Assange to publish his biography. They acquired the rights and hired novelist Andrew O’Hagan to ghost write. After several late night meetings with Assange, O’Hagan penned down his story and submitted it to him to read the result. Assange was not happy with the result as it was too much biography and not enough politics and pulled back from the project. Canongate decided to publish it anyway as they thought they did justice to Assange and his cyberpunk movement. Well, what can we say? The book is on the shelves, read it and decide for yourself. Confidence Men -

Ron Suskind The hidden history of Wall Street and the White House comes down to a single, powerful, quintessentially American concept: confidence. Both centers of power, tapping brazen innovations over the past three decades, learned how to manufacture it. Until August 2007, when that confidence finally began to crumble. In this gripping and brilliantly reported book, Pullitzer Prize-winning journalist Ron Suskind tells the story of what happened next, as Wall Street struggled to save itself while a man with little experience and soaring rhetoric emerged from obscurity to usher in “a new era of responsibility.” It is a story that follows the journey of Barack Obama, who rose as the country fell, and offers the first full portrait ! of his tumultuous presidency.
