Where is the interesting part of the article?
Whatever WikiLeaks eventually thinks of the movie being made about Julian Assange, it’s proving expert in the business of buzz-generation. After shooting began in Reykjavik at the end of January (Iceland Review), the organisation has revealed - completely co-incidentally, of course - an incident in August 2011 in which FBI …
I'm sick to the back teeth of the Hanlon's Razor Nuremberg Defence. "They were only being lazy and stupid."
Ignorance and willful stupidity *are* malice. If you can't be f***ed to learn and you can't be f***ed to understand, that's f***ing malice aforethought. Just 'cause it seems more fuzzy and friendly than outright hostility, it's as antisocial as ti comes nonetheless.
@Falanx Malice would imply some ill will from the FBI towards the authorities of Iceland. I would suggest that "arrogance" is more likely i.e. it probably never occurred to the FBI that other counties have their own laws and procedures and that perhaps they should check before just turning up.
Piss myself laughing if they were actually there on holiday or even better doing something that had fuck all to do with Assange!!
Not that the oxygen thief is getting annoying now, but seriously a couple of FBI agents go to Iceland.....
.......mines the smoking gun on the grassy knoll!!!
That's an interesting theory and crazy notion to actively develop for further exploitation of advanced opportunities with zeroday vulnerabilities in politically inept applications in globally minded institutions with stealthy programming projects.
And whenever it be true, The Vociferous Time Waster, does it indicate that Russia are leading in that particular and peculiar competitive race?
Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence. Probably a procedural balls up ……. AC Posted Sunday 3rd February 2013 23:06 GMT
Probably a procedural balls up, AC? Oh please, you cannot be serious whenever incompetent malice is systemic and endemic in a big scary country.
Yes you're right, it's of no interest that a bit scary country sent it's enforcers illegally to a smaller country, and it was hushed up. Assuming you are the tyrant of said big scary country that is. … tirk Posted Sunday 3rd February 2013 23:14 GMT
If you can believe the evidence/news here, ….. http://www.thedailybell.com/28642/Paul-Craig-Roberts-In-Amerika-Law-No-Longer-Exists-the-extermination-of-truth …. would they be wannabe tyrants of a big scared country/failing executive body/second rate sub prime sysadmin in dire straits need of novel betas with better intellectual property feeds and seeds.
And there is no question of that analysis not being right.

And what are Ögmundur Jónasson's links to Dickileaks pet she-troll Birgitta Jónsdóttir? Given his own involvement in the Icesave mess, maybe he was just paranoid the FBI may have been looking at where all those "protected" Icelandic investors were spending their political contributions.
/Holmes as we don't have a Jack Bauer icon.
"It's interesting that the US managed to move from "moderately trustworthy" to a status well below China and Russia in less than a decade, and continues to dig deeper."
Huh? Seriously? So they were a bunch of huggy my-little-ponies during the 'Red Scares', Cold War, Vietnam, et al? How about when the US government dragged its heels over getting involved in a couple of World Wars until they deliberately racked up enough credit with every other superpower to effectively destroy future competition?
Heck didn't they annex California, New Mexico and Texas before 1850?
The US has been an imperialist, expansionist power.
Like father, like son!
Apparently so. And some Texans I met while there still don't like the situation much.
From a British perspective, much development in the region for agriculture was being bankrolled by London around that time. Needless to say, compensation for the early investors was not generous nor forthcoming.
Provided that I give them all body cavity searches while wearing my shoulder length gloves, and then a good scrub down on one of the CIA style wooden horizontal showers.....
Maybe smear them in their own shit and take photos - or attach electric wires to their genitals etc...
Or how about feeding them Depleted Uranium suppliments, there's 1300 tons of that laying around Iran and Iraq.
A few grams each shouldn't hurt.
FAIL - The Americans and their spreading "Peace and Democracy" to the world, sure has united it. The rest of the world has the same flag as the American's, but theirs is on fire.
1692 - Salem witch trials
1950 - McCarthyism
War on drugs, on terror, forcing thru' IP protectionism...
America has never had a problem with seeing monsters under the bed and trampling all over due process.
But I suppose it's Britains fault really, we should never have let the terrorists win, (1775–1783) - ooh, ouch!
"we should never have let the terrorists win"
Never mind: At least we ALL learned our lesson of not trying to inflict policies on a local population who doesn't want you there, on another continent, at the end of long supply lines, in inhospitable terrain, against irregular forces who are personally invested in the future of their nation.
Be careful what you say about Assange, judging by my earlier comment either people didn't get the humour or they took exception to me referring to St Julian as an Oxygen thief!!
Anyway back on topic, has anybody said what the Feebs were doing in Iceland in the first place, or is it just 2+2=4 or 2+2=Assange, in other words were they looking at Assange or something completely unrelated to Wikileaks?
If you think the FBI left without already having all the info they needed , consider this.
Who knows how many of them stayed after their chummies were sent home ? Don't believe a thing you read or hear in a public news source about secretive organisations.Ain't that a bit of what the lesson left by Wikileaks is about ? This said . Iceland kicking them out could have been part of the plot all along.
Disinformation is just that. Still cheering for Iceland ?
