What is Going On with Wikileaks? Assange MIA, MacFadyen Dead and the CIA Honeypot Trying to Tank the Clinton Campaign? What Gives?

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE 10/25/16: Cryptome Deletes Tweets from Our Conversation Yesterday After I Mention Founder’s Lifelong Association with CIA: @Cryptomeorg is a CIA Honeypot

UPDATE: Please see UPDATE at end of article which details Cass Sunstein’s involvement in the creation of Wikileaks. Then read about Sunstein and his work on the cognitive infiltration of the alternative dissident movements.


I’ve been asked on several occasions about what I think is going on with Wikileaks and all these document dumps they are releasing trying to derail the Hillary train, at least in terms of appearances, when in fact we all know that Wikileaks is a CIA honeypot designed to:

  1. aid various regime change propaganda as needed by influencing the more left-wing of the alternative media outlets
  2. serve as a black hole for real leaks from real whistle-blowers when they make the mistake of trusting Wikileaks and sending something to them

Wikileaks was established in 2006 at a time when real whistle-blowers like William Binney, Russ Tice, Mark Klein (Room 641A ) and a few others were starting to make things really difficult for our glorious leaders who had a totally different world in mind for us to live in. You may also recall in 2004 the story of Abu Ghraib broke complete with leaked photos depicting horrific torture being conducted by our troops who were running the detention center.

So in 2006 something needed to be done in order to keep real whistle-blowers from getting their stories on the front pages of every news paper and website in the country and thus, Wikileaks was born. The idea of a honeypot was hatched.

They got Julian Assange to act as it’s front-man. A sleazy character, who, like most other assets they procure for such operations, had a long history of criminal behavior and a strange history of being forgiven for it.

“As a teenager in Melbourne, he (Assange) belonged to a hacker collective called the International Subversives. He eventually pled guilty to 24 counts of breaking into Australian government and commercial websites to test their security gaps, but was released on bond for good behavior. His official bio describes him as “Australia’s most famous ethical hacker.” In the years that followed, Assange helped write a book about his exploits in the online underground and says he went on to become an investigative journalist for Australian and British newspapers.” Mother Jones, 2010

In 1987, part of the folklore of Julian Assange has him hacking the Pentagon at the tender age of 16. Four years later in 1991, he was caught hacking an Australian multinational telecom company and arrested. He was charge with 31 major hacking crimes and later, in 1996, he pled guilty to 25 of those. 25 felony charges. He was released for “good behavior”

What was that “good behavior” you ask?

In 1993 Assange gave technical advice to the Victoria Police Child Exploitation Unit and assisted with prosecutions.[37] In the same year he was involved in starting one of the first public Internet service providers in Australia, Suburbia Public Access Network

That’s right. He got his mind right and helped the system bust other criminals.

It should also be noted that when Wikileaks first started up, they openly admitted they were run by a bunch of Chinese dissident “hackers”. These are the same types of “hacktivists” who work for groups like USAID and the Soros’ Open Society Foundation who work to promote regime change in various countries on behalf of the CIA and the masters of the universe. Julian Assange describes his ideology as being in support of market libertarianism. Yeah, free market neoliberalism.

I am certainly not the only one out here who sees Wikileaks and Assange for what they really are.

“Steven Aftergood, who writes the Federation of American Scientists’ Secrecy News blog and has published thousands of leaked or classified documents, says he wasn’t impressed with WikiLeaks’ “conveyor-belt approach” to publishing anything it came across. “To me, transparency is a means to an end, and that end is an invigorated political life, accountable institutions, opportunities for public engagement. For them, transparency and exposure seem to be ends in themselves,” says Aftergood”…

“John Young, founder of the pioneering whistleblower site, Cryptome.org, is skeptical. Assange reverently describes Cryptome as WikiLeaks’ “spiritual godfather.” But Young claims he was conned into registering the WikiLeaks domain when Assange’s team first launched (the site is no longer under his name). He fought back by leaking his correspondence with WikiLeaks. “WikiLeaks is a fraud,” he wrote to Assange’s list, hinting that the new site was a CIA data mining operation. “Fuck your cute hustle and disinformation campaign against legitimate dissent. Same old shit, working for the enemy.” Mother Jones, 2010

A “disinformation campaign against legitimate dissent” and “working for the enemy”. A pretty straight forward assessment of Wikileaks and Assange from a real whistle-blower website.

When they first came online, Wikileaks made a name for themselves with the “Collateral Murder” video which was designed to give them all sorts of whistle-blower street-cred but the video itself was carefully chosen in that it could easily be chalked up to the “fog of war” since two of the party members did have AKs on them and the film crews’ tripod did look like some sort of weapon from a distance. The van that was shot up was harder to justify but it was still an active combat area with troops on the ground a couple blocks away and thus they could end up saying they were taking precautions to make sure those troops weren’t ambushed.

I wrote about all of this years ago.

I also kept up with the Julian Assange controlled opposition psyop as it developed over the years:

As if we needed any more proof of what Wikileaks really is, read this from WIRED back in May of 2011;

“WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange now makes his associates sign a draconian nondisclosure agreement that, among other things, asserts that the organization’s huge trove of leaked material is “solely the property of WikiLeaks,” according to a report Wednesday.

“You accept and agree that the information disclosed, or to be disclosed to you pursuant to this agreement is, by its nature, valuable proprietary commercial information,” the agreement reads, “the misuse or unauthorized disclosure of which would be likely to cause us considerable damage.”

The confidentiality agreement (.pdf), revealed by the New Statesman, imposes a penalty of 12 million British pounds– nearly $20 million — on anyone responsible for a significant leak of the organization’s unpublished material. The figure is based on a “typical open-market valuation” of WikiLeaks’ collection, the agreement claims.” WIRED

The CIA honeypot would make leakers sign a contract with them expressly forbidding them from leaking their stuff after they hand it over to Wikileaks under penalty of being ruined financially for the rest of their lives. That way they could ensure once they had control of the information given to them in good faith by a whistle-blower, they could bury it forever if they chose to do so, without fear that the whistle-blower would get impatient waiting for the release and give it to someone else.

That’s not the work of a whistle-blower site. That’s the signature of a honeypot. No… question… about… it.

Started in Dec. of 2006, Wikileaks was being promoted in the MSM very early on. In fact, it was promoted as a whistle-blower site by the mainstream press even before it leaked a single document.

“By March, more than one million leaked documents from governments and corporations in Asia, the Middle East, sub-Saharan Africa and the former Soviet Bloc will be available online in a bold new collective experiment in whistle-blowing. That is, of course, as long as you don’t accept any of the conspiracy theories brewing that Wikileaks.org could be a front for the CIA or some other intelligence agency.” TIME Jan. 2007

From the start and even before the start, the Mockingbirds at TIME and the Washington Post were telling us about Wikileaks and more importantly, telling us what to think about them … and what NOT to think about them. Specifically the Mockingbirds were telling us it was a “conspiracy theory” to think Wikileaks was a CIA honeypot. Kind of an odd position for an establishment rag to take regarding a website that was supposed to help bring down the establishment don’t you think?

All of this should make it perfectly clear to anyone not named Glenn Greenwald that Wikileaks is, was and always shall be a CIA honeypot designed to sucker in unwise whistle-blowers and vacuum up their potentially damaging leaks before they can be shown the light of day. They also serve the purpose of an irregular warfare operation in support of military campaigns across the world via various degrees of “hearts and minds” operations attempting to build popular support for those military objectives.

That said…

What’s going on with these leaks that look to undermine Hillary Clinton’s chances at winning the White House, Julian Assange’s disappearing act and the death of Gavin MacFadyen?

Let’s take these one at a time.

First of all, Wikileaks is saying Equador is behind the silencing of Julian Assange. The MSM is applauding them for doing it. The foreign minister of the country says they did so in order to keep from being perceived as trying to influence the electoral process of another country. But Assange is not Wikileaks and these Podesta email leaks have continued without a hitch ever since even though Assange himself has been “missing in action” for a while now leaving many to speculate about his welfare. He is no longer conducting his doorway press conferences anymore and hasn’t been Tweeting since his internet access was supposedly shut down.

But he has recently made contact with someone.

Yesterday Gavin MacFadyen died of unknown causes. MacFadyen was reportedly a director at Wikileaks and a long time documentary maker and publisher of his own internet transparancy organization the Centre for Investigative Journalism.

WikiLeaks director and founder of the Centre for Investigative Journalism Gavin MacFadyen has died at age 76. The cause of death is yet unknown. His ‘fellows in arms’ have flocked online to post their farewells, including WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange.  ” RT

Wikileaks issued a statement as did Julian Assange (though Wikileaks):

We are told “JA” stands for Julian Assange.

So apparently Assange can still communicate with Wikileaks. And apparently Assange says MacFadyen was a “director” of Wikileaks. Got that? Good.

Now here’s a little info on MacFadyen’s CIJ which is housed at the University of London (home of neoliberalism birthplace, the London School of Economics):

The CIJ’s supporters include reporters from the BBC Radio and Television, Canal Plus (Paris), CBS 60 Minutes, Channel Four, Private Eye, Sunday Times Insight Team,[7] the New York Times, World in Action producers and WikiLeaks.[8]

In 2007 the CIJ acquired registered charity status and attracted support from a number of foundations including the Open Society Institute, the David and Elaine Potter Foundation, the Ford Foundation, the Park Foundation, the Reva and David Logan Foundation, Democratie en Media, Goldsmiths, University of London and several smaller private trusts.

So MacFadyen’s little project teaching “journalism” to young impressionable minds is housed in the same institution as the London School of Economics and backed by the Ford Foundation and Soros’ Open Society Institute? And they get support from New York Times and 60 Minutes? Notice his organization was supported by Channel 4 news? They are the same institution that produced the glowing propaganda story about the “moderate” terrorists in Syria who chopped off that poor kid’s head on live video.

Makes you kind of wonder if he simply ran a Mockingbird training program over in London. Makes you wonder if Mr. Macfadyen actually trained some of those White Helmet “journalists” at his CIJ school. Pretty disgusting, right? And what a small intelligence industrial complex world it is.

The death of MacFadyen is interesting though. The timing is impossible to ignore.

Look, as you can see, I know what Wikileaks is, I know what Assange is. And I know what Macfadyen was. That’s not the question.

The question is… what is going on here?

This might be the most fascinating spy story to ever take shape in the history of our country and it looks like no one, I mean NO ONE, is seeing it for what it is.

There is obviously a conflict in the Obama White House regarding our involvement in Syria. There are tons of former advisors who are practically begging for bombing campaigns and the head of the Pentagon apparently deliberately undermined a cease-fire agreement with Syria and Russia so that tensions would be stoked in that country.

We also know Hillary Clinton had to pressure Obama to allow her to destroy Libya on behalf of British and French national interests. That is a fact. Everyone knows she is a warmonger and thus, that is why she is supported by all the neocons from the former administration who brought us the fiasco of the Iraq War in 2003.

None of that is a controversial statement on my part. The conflict between the factions in the White House is well documented.

So what are we seeing with all of these Wikileaks email dumps?

William Binney recently said that the intelligence industry knows exactly where those leaks came from. All of them. He said it was an inside job coming either from the NSA or some other alphabet agency or perhaps even from a whistle-blower (with regard to the DNC leaks)

And that makes perfect sense.

I know that we sometimes get caught up in the trap of looking at the masters of the universe and all their minions as a monolithic entity all moving toward the same goal in the same direction but my guess is, that simply isn’t the case.

It could be that there is a fascinating war going on inside the military intelligence complex between factions that hold very different opinions about how this country needs to advance their shared neoliberal globalist agenda.

Look at what Sec. of Defense Ash Carter just did to the State Department’s cease-fire agreement in Syria. Is it really so hard to imagine a similar mutiny is resulting in intelligence assets being used to influence our elections here in the states like they try to do all over the world?

So of course the story about “Russian hacking” would emerge very, very quickly from anonymous intelligence sources. The last thing either side would want to do is expose the battle raging between factions inside our own military intelligence apparatus. That would be disastrous. The roll back against the intelligence agencies for interfering with our own elections would be tremendous and neither camp wants to see that because both sides fully expect to use these agencies and these powers to the fullest in the future.

Of course, this is all speculation but it is informed speculation. Were our intelligence assets really dedicated to silencing Wikileaks all these years, Assange would have long since been ‘retired’ along with his entire staff and the website itself shuttered. The proof of Wikileaks’ real purpose has been with us for years. We understand that.

Now we see real damage being done to Hillary’s campaign as well as to the DNC itself and we have to ask ourselves why it is being allowed to continue.

We also see someone clearly affiliated with Wikileaks and our intelligence agencies end up dead under mysterious circumstances. Funny isn’t it? After all these years serving as director of Wikileaks, this man ends up dying right now as they are apparently doing some real damage to one of our presidential nominees.

Is this a war between competing factions in the intelligence industry? Is it all for show, just the precursor to the last act of the Wikileaks psyop looking to provide the final pretext for shuttering the internet and making dissent a criminal act?

I don’t know. But it is damn fascinating isn’t it? This is probably the most interesting spy story I’ve ever seen and unfortunately we probably wont know anything about it for at least ten years or so. It certainly puts that bullshit phony Snowden psyop to shame, now doesn’t it?

  1. Best Wikileaks write up anywhere, in a very very long time. Very well done, Scott. Thank you.

  2. So how does this inane theory connect with the facts, jailings, cut telecommunications, and revelations? All facts must be evaluated, especially the PRIMARY ones. Innuendo on non relevant data, not so much. We go from a possible data mining theory, which is and can be done without cooperation from anyone except government Nazis. #DrEd


    Scott characterizes Wikileaks as a “honey trap.” That is, Wikileaks poses as “leftist” in order to plant right-wing lies in the minds of progressive-minded people.

    Julian Assange: “I’m constantly annoyed that people are distracted by false conspiracies such as 9/11, when all around we provide evidence of real conspiracies, for war or mass financial fraud.” http://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/life/features/wanted-by-the-cia-julian-assange-wikileaks-founder-28548843.html

    ANOTHER FORM OF HONEY-TRAP is to plant articles in ostensibly “progressive” blogs in order to snare progressives. Such articles pose as “humanitarian,” but their bellicose jingoism is as awful as anything written by arch-neocons.

    All “white helmets”™ are heroes.
    All Syrian terrorists are “freedom fighters.”
    All casualties of US bombing are “human shields.”
    All the blame for the US-led proxy war against Syria is Assad’s.
    All people who call the proxy war a proxy war are “sell outs.”
    All leftists who fail to condemn Russia are false leftists.
    And so on.

    An example from Socialist Worker….

    An example from Counterpunch…

    An example from InTheseTimes…

    An example from WorldBeyondWar…

    With these honey-pot tactics, it does not matter if no one believes such trash. What matters is that average people remain confused and submissive while the Empire continues its genocides.

    Here’s another example…

    QUESTION: How can you call yourself progressive, while you support the mass murder of children in the Gaza Death Camp?

    HONEY-TRAP ANSWER: How can you call yourself progressive, while you support anti-Semites and terrorist Palestinians?

    The point of the honey-trap is to keep average people bickering while the slaughter continues.

    • Elizabeth,
      I wrote off Assange and WIkileaks after reading that quote you (thankfully) provided: “Julian Assange: ‘I’m constantly annoyed that people are distracted by false conspiracies such as 9/11.'” As 9/11 is a litmus test for me, that’s all I needed to know. But I do think Scott is onto something here re the possibility of infighting.

      Scott writes, “Is this a war between competing factions in the intelligence industry? Is it all for show, just the precursor to the last act of the Wikileaks psyop looking to provide the final pretext for shuttering the internet and making dissent a criminal act? I don’t know…”

      I don’t know either but, could be. However, I do think one related goal is to demonstrate how indestructible Hillary actually is. No matter how much is revealed about her–and it all seems to be coming out now–she is still standing tall. Thus, Wikileaks is helping to make her look untouchable, which she actually is. If that’s not a goal, it is certainly an effect.

      Many will thus fall in line behind their invincible leader, once Hillary takes office and begins to make matter worse–for the everyday man and woman, that is, not for her puppeteers..

      • Ha ha ha
        Once she takes office he he he
        Cough cough cough cough cough cough!

        • I never saw a Trump victory coming. Was firmly convinced Hillary would win. In comes Trump, and there goes that theory!

  4. Comment eaten by WordPress. (Maybe it was a tad too lengthy.)

    • Elizabeth,

      I just had a post eaten too. Perhaps mine was just too brilliant, or insightful, or obnoxious. Or maybe the failure was not at all sinister, even tho my stationary bike mileage counter read 666.6 when the post failure happened (yes, I was multi-tasking).

      In any event, in that post that never made it here (even tho I was asked to confirm, via email, that I was following this thread, which was part and parcel of that post!), I thanked you for mentioning the Assange comment re 9/11 (wherein Assange finds 9/11 Truth to be a false conspiracy) since I had written off Assange and Wikileaks long ago as a result of that story you cited. 9/11 Truth being a litmus test for me.

      Scott once told me that he doesn’t agree that 9/11 Truth should be a litmus test, but I have found it to be very accurate and efficient. For example, I had written off Noam (‘JFK and 9/11 don’t matter’) Chomsky long before Scott did, via application of that test, while Scott hung in there until later and finally did a magnificent deconstruction of Chomsky here on this site, which would not have been written had he employed a 9/11 litmus test.

      In any event, like Scott, I don’t know what’s going on here with Assange and Wikileaks, but what came to me was that they were throwing everything at Hillary that they could and, as you will note, she is still standing tall, and poised to be coronated. This sets her up as some sort of invincible untouchable (no, the use of the word “untouchable” is not a straight line for a Bill Clinton joke). This also paves the way for Hillary to get away with anything once she takes office (unless perhaps if she is seduced by an intern in the Oval Orifice). All of which, I feel, is part of this Wikileaks effort.

      In any event, this was the first time posting on this site has been problematic, and I do wish I had copied and pasted that now-vanished post before I clicked “Post Comment,” which I will do now, just in case.

      • “Scott once told me that he doesn’t agree that 9/11 Truth should be a litmus test, but I have found it to be very accurate and efficient.” ~ Dennis

        Agreed. We don’t have to endlessly harp on 9-11, or even mention it. But if a person echoes the official lies about 9-11, then we can immediately dismiss everything he says about it, and about every other related topic.

        As for Chomsky, he has always called himself an unabashed Zionist (i.e. a Jewish supremacist) and therefore remains suspect no matter what he says. Same with Norman Finkelstein, who calls himself the son of “holocaust survivors.” Bernie Sanders sold out to Hillary, and regards the late Hugo Chavez as a “dead Communist dictator.”

        That’s our world. That’s the cards we’ve been dealt.

        All human societies are insane. They only differ in the form of their madness, and in the number of individuals they exterminate.

  5. Donald Trump gives credit to Wikileaks in his speeches but doesn’t comment on the current speculation about Assange. He relies heavily on the Clinton emails for his campaign so you’d think he’d be very concerned about this important source of info. Or does Trump know where this info actually comes from?

    Also, if I had spent the last few years shut up indoors I’d be going stir crazy. But up to now Julian seems to have been doing just fine. I know it’s not quite the same as solitary confinement in a prison cell but I do wonder how he keeps himself together, both mentally and physically.

    Perhaps he was never there in the first place.

    And didn’t the appearance of Pamela Anderson spark a WTF moment? She’s come a long way from her days in Baywatch hasn’t she.

    • one thing about living in an embassy is the luxury of being able to travel in diplomatic cars, blacked out windows, which are never pulled over. Plus, they can go straight onto an airport tarmac and straight to a private jet without anyone even looking in the car. I’m not sayin… I’m just sayin…. I don’t think he’s been there the whole time either. Kinda like “Snowde” in that Russian airport.

  6. Excellent analysis of Wiki and Assange!

  7. Maybe the U.S.A. is just being ‘guided’ into the BRICS ‘new Eastern outlook’ scam? I saw this on a recent LaRouche site: ” While Americans are being subjected to the psychological trauma of the presidential election process the world is realigning towards China’s win-win paradigm of growth and development.”


    Ian Bremmer is the president and founder of Eurasia Group, a pro-imperialist and neoliberal propaganda mill that (he claims) has “offices” in New York City, Washington, London, Tokyo, São Paulo, and San Francisco. Bremmer is also foreign affairs columnist and editor-at-large at Time magazine.

    As an example of Bremmer’s lies, he is circulating a photo of a replica of the Statue of Liberty, which he claims was erected by the Aleppo terrorists out of pieces of bombed buildings.

    The “statue” shows how much the terrorist mercenaries love “Freedom, democracy, and the American way.”

    You can see Bremmer’s bullshit here…

    Bremmer’s lies are exposed here…

  9. Comic relief? Hardly, not when the topic is Ian Bremmer, the psychopath who calmly sat in a TV studio on 9-11, pointing the finger at Osama Bin laden, while knowing full well that his colleagues and employees in the WTC were being burned to death, were jumping out of windows from the 90th floor, and were being blown up into small pieces. And knowing beforehand that this would happen, hence his absence from a meeting that he had arranged for that time.
