Wikileaks Connected to Swedish Nazi

Comment: Wikileaks–in the news after publishing classified U.S. military documents–is connected to “Pirate Bay,” the patron of which is the Nazi-affiliated Carl Lundstrom.

Are Nazi elements seeking to undermine [what’s left of] U.S. credibility and/or assisting the Taliban. (Unlike the Pentagon Papers, with which the Wikileaks material has been compared, the documents disclose hard information about U.S. military tactics and operations.)

The web-hosting company, PRQ, that’s also owned by the Pirate Bay owners is hosting the Wikileaks site. It is not clear if this means that PRQ is also going to be routing all the leaked documents that people anonymously send to Wikileaks, but that certainly sounds possible.  And if that’s the case, then a neo-Nazi’s company is able to read all the anonymous submissions of classified documents sent by people around the world.

In the context of the Lundstrom/Wikileaks connection, we should bear in mind that Sweden–officially neutral in the Second World War–has a vibrant Nazi and fascist community. Fans of Stieg Larsson’s novels and the popular motion pictures being produced from them should note that the events portrayed by Larsson actually occurred.

” Swedish Web Hosting Firm Confirms WikiLeaks Link” by Karl Ritter [AP]; msnbc.com; 8/6/2010.

Excerpt: A Swedish Internet company linked to file-sharing hub The Pirate Bay says it’s helping online whistle-blower WikiLeaks release classified documents from servers located in a Stockholm suburb.

Mikael Viborg, the owner of the Web hosting company PRQ, on Friday showed The Associated Press the site — the basement of a drab office building — in Solna on the condition that the exact location was not revealed.

“This is the office. The server room is further inside,” the 28-year-old Viborg said, with the door to the office cracked open. Desks with computers, documents, and empty pastry boxes and soda cans could be seen inside before he closed the door.

WikiLeaks posted more than 76,900 classified military and other documents, mostly raw intelligence reports from Afghanistan, on its website July 25. The White House angrily denounced the leaks, saying they put the lives of Afghan informants and U.S. troops at risk.

The secretive website gives few details about its setup, but says its “servers are distributed over multiple international jurisdictions and do not keep logs. Hence these logs cannot be seized.” . . .

  1. Hi Dave,
    What do think of “Anonymous”?

    They appear to me to be affiliated with Wikileaks.

    Very interesting.
