Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has passport confiscated
The Australian founder of the whistleblower website Wikileaks had his passport confiscated by police when he arrived in Melbourne last week.

Julian Assange, who does not have an official home base and travels every six weeks, told the Australian current affairs program Dateline that immigration officials had said his passport was going to be canceled because it was looking worn.

However he then received a letter from the Australian Communication Minister Steven Conroy’s office stating that the recent disclosure on Wikileaks of a blacklist of websites the Australian government is preparing to ban had been referred to the Australian Federal Police (AFP).

Yes it was classified... reuters had been trying to get a hold of a copy for 3 years but the government refused.

The Wikileaks computer team also had to de-encrypt the video to even be able to view it. From what I understand this was a costly and lengthy operation.

When they released the Iraq footage, they also claimed they would release more footage this time from Afghanistan. Has anyone heard anything about this?

Another proof that wikileaks is controlled opposition runned by TPTB. They pick them up, make some headlines in the press, and then release them. It happened to the "Democracy Now" crew in 2008, you can find more examples of this method.

A huge blow? No it wasn't. The war has been going on for 8 years and hundreds of thousands of people are killed. This is no "news". Or are there "nice" ways to kill people?

The purpose of this "leak" is to raise indignation against the US among people all over the world. TPTB wants to destroy the US to prepare for the NWO.

Second thoughts. Maybe perhaps he has a case for harassment.

Assange told The Age his passport was taken from him by customs officials at Melbourne Airport when he entered the country last week after he was told ''it was looking worn''.

When the passport was returned to him after about 15 minutes, he says he was told by authorities that it was going to be or was cancelled.

Passports are routinely taken from travellers for short periods by immigration officials if they are damaged.

Yes this is absolutely true, but sad to say... videos like that are the only hope we have for waking up the Sheople in the USA... it's just like 9/11. Yeah, of course it was a huge mind fuck to kick start the agenda but it also woke a hell of a lot of people up...

Yeah, this is what im trying to say, if you just think for a moment.
He had agents following him, to see what it was he had.
They confiscated his laptop.
When they seen it was not classified, they let him go.
If it was classified, we would have never heard from him again.

They are examples of controlled opposition. They are allowed to expose some of the corruption and often they channel peoples opposition into some meaningless grassroots movement. Like the 9/11 truth movement for example, they refuse to acknowledge that the planes where faked on the TV videos because they are not allowed to put the blame on MSM. More fake opposition: Michael Moore, Noam Chomsky etc etc
