8 February 2011. Cryptome comment posted to:
The Domscheit-Berg book excerpts were made by the unknown source from a review
copy. Cryptome has not seen the book.
Jay Lim was used as a nym for the WL Volunteers mail list from
9 June 2007 to 7 March 2008. These messages were commingled with others by
Julian Assange, J, J.A., and
Another WL mail list message concerning TW refers to two people,
xxx/lim, asking about Chinese language capability.
Julian Assange has many pseudonyms, anonyms, fictional characters, obscuratisms
and operations he deploys to manage his reputation and hide his great fortune
from tax authorities who will pay handsomely those who leak locations of
This is not unusual for scoundrels online and off, indeed, obligatory to
heighten drama and mystery as Wikileaks admitted at its beginning and as
demonstrated by the former Mr. Schmidt, along with the brave posters here.
You may call me scoundrel JY, omitting the A.
And another by Cryptome, same place:
Good observation about sitting on the alleged documents. However, every leak
outlet, like any media, has the opportunity to benefit from what it chooses
to make public and what it provides in secret.
Open and secret information are always united with each being used to increase
the value of the other. Open to publicize the products availability
with alluring samples, then secret distribution to those with capability
to pay for exclusive access.
That is the arrangement worked out among Wikileaks and its succession of
main stream media partners. The MSM partners are quite accustomed to this
two-faced way of doing business, especially proclaiming about not paying
for news and never admitting the sale of information to secret buyers, or
more commonly, bartering one type of information for another. Sources become
publishers, publishers become sources.
Wikileaks is a crafty newcomer to a very old practice and is likely to be
screwed for love until able to convert to the gold standard by marrying a
rich mate, or more accurately, several mates simultaneously and serially.
Julian is inside the mansion being clothed, fed, bedded and feted like a
prince after being on the run from hoodlums on his tail, and he looks quite
pleased with his concubinage in ankle bondage.
The promise of this exalted stature to last several years of litigation and
madcap media bloodsucking his droning verbiage must be intoxicating as if
a Chaplinesque dictator.
The cables will slowly fart for the duration of incarceration. Why take low-grade
submissions when this mysterious pile assures never-ending avoidance of paid
OpenLeaks is setting out to do the same marketing of virginity, awaiting
proposals for polygamy.

The excerpts published in Cryptome are not accurate translations of my
authorized, final text.
In respect to the passage on the data, my text reads:
"The architect has taken care to instruct the other technicians. Patiently
he explained to him in the transfer phase, as the whole thing had to be
configured. The young techie's actually a really good programmer, and would
he also knows, in our new project always welcome. However, he was simply
overwhelmed with the reconstruction.
Julian has not adequately cared or supported him, but rather just complain.
Why the system in January 2011, four months after our departure, still not
working again, I do not know exactly, but it can think of.
We are still waiting on that Julian restore security so that we can give
him back the material, which was on the tendering platform. We have no interest
in the material, even for OpenLeaks we will not use it. We are Julie but
return again until he can prove to us that he can keep it safe and so carefully
and responsibly deal.
Until now, until the publication of the book, we have what anyone says. Because
we were afraid of the public debate. We were afraid we might lose them. Maybe
that will happen now. But I am fully on this decision. We were and are primarily
committed to the safety of our sources. "
This is my text, any other versions are not accurately translated.
We have never wanted to take away any of those documents, but no one cared
to tell us where to put them. Specifically not Julian. We have on numerous
occasions after we left reconfirmed that we want this handover to happen
to no avail.
The only thing that happened rather than just organizing that we have offered
hand over that for months now, is that I have recently received a letter
from lawyer John Eisenberg, who seems to represent Julian here in Germany.
Cryptome comment to:
To correct an earlier message to Detlef about the number of Wikileaks volunteers:
A Jay Lim fund-raising message dated 14 September 2007 on the WL Volunteer
mail list states:
"While Wikileaks has many diverse friends including over 1500 people on this
list, the reality is a few journalists, graduate students and anti-corruption
people do -- with a handful of notable exceptions -- all the work. So far
most work has gone on recruiting sources, protecting sources, censorship
resistance and writing articles. Presentation and indexing of source material
has not been automated but there is so much material it is impossible to
deal with manually. It is a big task and the only way to have it and several
other tasks done quickly is to pay specialists to work on them full time.
None of the founders are experts in these areas."
It is common to claim as participants those who merely sign up for information.
The CIA does the same with what it calls "sources." See
In addition to the private mail list,
had several public mail lists which overlapped:
WIKILEAKS (press office)
Some 415 messages were distributed by these various public lists from 14
January 2007 to 7 March 2010. This is not to say there were not others lists
and means for public commnunication besides the main web site which provided
links to forums and bulletin boards.
