More Fallout from WikiLeaks Scandal

Canadian security experts are warning the corporate elite that Canada is not immune to WikiLeaks. Michael Murphy, the vice president and general manager of Symantec Canada has warned that many Canadian companies lose critical information simply from carelessness. He commented forgotten USB sticks and misplaced laptops are the most common cause.

He also warned that Canadians don’t place as much emphasis on security as Americans do. he warned that Canadian companies and government officials should step up if they want private sensitive information kept secret.

The message is clear: the bourgeois in Canada may be next. The ruling and wealthy class in Canada has a great deal of secrets they want kept hidden. They too have blood on their hands that need to be quickly be washed away.

I hope WikiLeaks spares no one from the Canadian bourgeois who are just as bad as the American ones.

The WikiLeaks found Julian Assange has announced that early next year the next target of private information will be big business. The WikiLeaks webpage has announced that it has tens of thousands of internal documents from a major U.S. bank.

The say they intend to expose the criminal activities of its bankers. They won’t release the name of the bank, but they warn there is much more coming.

Assange said this in an interview:

“It’s like the Enron e-mails… It will give a true and representative insight into how banks behave at the executive level in a way that will stimulate investigations and reforms.”

WikiLeaks plans a wave of new leaks from the corporate sector, he said, including damaging documents from pharmaceutical companies, energy and oil companies and many banks.

The entire world is anticipating their release.

It is beginning to look like the US government might use the Espionage Act on Julian Assange. It’s a rarely used law that came into effect in 1911 that makes it illegal to leak classified information that creates a national security risk. This is a very serious law with very serious consequences. As a matter of fact this law was most often used against so-called Communists in the 40s and 50s.

Experts are saying that when applied to a media outlet the chances of prosecution are very slim. Freedom of speech is a constitutional right and has been held up in Supreme Court. Previously two American-Israel public affairs committee officials were charged in 2007, but walked because they were Israeli citizens.

The situation for Julian Assange is getting very dangerous and he really should consider Ecuador’s offer of citizenship and protection.
