Alexander Cockroach Still Using WikiLeaks’ Resident Holocaust Denier

Julian Assange and Joran Jer­mas aka “Israel Shamir”

COMMENT: It says a great deal about the sor­ry nature of the so-called pro­gres­sive sec­tor in this coun­try that Alexan­der Cock­burn (I call him “Cock­roach”) con­tin­ues to uti­lize Joran Jer­mas aka “Israel Shamir” the unabashed Holo­caust-denier who, along with his son Johannes Wahlstrom (of a sim­i­lar polit­i­cal fab­ric), com­prise a key ele­ment of the Wik­iLeaks infra­struc­ture.

Along with the oth­er dupes who have fall­en in behind Wik­iLeaks, Cock­roach appar­ent­ly sees noth­ing wrong with putting for­ward such a loath­some indi­vid­ual.

Now, Jermas/Shamir is access­ing mate­r­i­al from Wik­iLeaks that casts asper­sions on Pres­i­dent Oba­ma’s take­down of Bin Laden, serv­ing the inter­ests of the GOP and Amer­i­ca’s ene­mies. Remem­ber that Karl Rove has a major pres­ence in Swe­den, where Assange, Jer­mas and com­pa­ny have come to roost.

As dis­cussed in the exhaus­tive For The Record series on Wik­iLeaks and the Pig­gy-Back Coups, Wik­iLeaks is a far-right, Nazi influ­enced intel­li­gence net­work.

As stat­ed before, WHO is vet­ting the authen­tic­i­ty of these “leaked” cables? What sort of qual­i­ty con­trol is being exer­cised with regard to their authen­tic­i­ty?

“Cross and Dou­ble Cross with Git­mo Files; US Knew Where Osama Was Since 2005” by Israel Shamir; Coun­ter­punch; 5/4/2011.

EXCERPT: The unredact­ed Guan­tanamo files show clear­ly that the trail to Abbot­tabad was known to the US intel­li­gence ser­vices at least since 2005, when al-Libi, anoth­er Abbot­tabad dweller, was cap­tured.

Tim­ing is every­thing. The US Pres­i­dent announced killing of Osama bin Laden just as Wik­ileaks com­plet­ed its pub­li­ca­tion of Guan­tanamo files. Was it coin­ci­dence? If not, what was the con­nec­tion?

An answer to this ques­tion is direct­ly con­nect­ed with the cross and dou­ble cross accu­sa­tions exchanged in the murky world where the intel­li­gence ser­vices meet main­stream media.

Pub­li­ca­tion of the US secret papers, the Guan­tanamo Files, was done almost simul­ta­ne­ous­ly by two com­pet­ing media groups.
One was the Wik­ileaks of Julian Assange and their part­ners The Wash­ing­ton Post, The Dai­ly Tele­graph, the French Le Monde.

Anoth­er one was The New York Times, The Guardian, the Israeli Haaretz.

The Guardian said of the files: “They were obtained by the New York Times, who shared them with the Guardian, which is pub­lish­ing extracts today, hav­ing redact­ed infor­ma­tion which might iden­ti­fy infor­mants. The New York Times says the files were made avail­able to it not by Wik­ileaks, but “by anoth­er source on the con­di­tion of anonymi­ty”.

Haaretz made more of it: “A few media out­lets, includ­ing The New York Times, the Guardian and Haaretz, obtained the doc­u­ments from an inde­pen­dent source with­out the help of Wik­iLeaks founder Julian Assange, who is under house arrest in Britain await­ing his appeal not to be extra­dit­ed to Swe­den, where he faces charges of rape and sex­u­al assault.” The Guardian’s David Leigh twit­ted “dou­ble-cross­ing Assange!”

Now we’ll give you the sto­ry behind the sto­ry: who crossed and dou­ble crossed whom, which infor­ma­tion was redact­ed and how did it lead to OBL?  . . .

  1. Hel­lo Dave,

    After reflect­ing on the whole issue for sev­er­al months, I have come to real­ize that it is the results of an enter­prise that reveal to us the true nature of the pre-exist­ing inten­tion that moti­vat­ed that very enter­prise. In oth­er words, by the results, you see what effects were planned for a par­tic­u­lar action. Today, as we have dis­cussed it on a few occa­sions, social move­ments are a mix­ture of sev­er­al ide­olo­gies that, in the past, were con­sid­ered in com­pe­ti­tion. Extreme-Right, Extreme-Left and Islamism today com­pose the fab­ric of sev­er­al groups and, for the Lib­er­al world, it is a cat­a­stro­phy. The results of the actions of groups such as Wik­iLeaks, Lyn­don Larouche, Tea Par­ties, etc, are desta­bi­liza­tion of their soci­eties. You can see that their intent was not good in any way.

    I agree with you that to asso­ciate one­self with an Holo­caust denier does­n’t make sens, but in this new real­i­ty, that’s the kind of bizarre com­mit­ments that we will see more and more often. The abil­i­ty for the major­i­ty of the peo­ple to think in a log­i­cal way is impaired. And we know who is respon­si­ble for that.

    Any­way, have a great day.
