Wikileaks Cables: US Mocked Over Failure To Censor Wikileaks Cables
In the latest US diplomatic cables released by whistle-blowing website Wikileaks, the US ambassador in Beijing claims to be the victim of a prolonged Chinese bullying campaign because of America’s ongoing inability to silence dissidents, such as on the whistle-blowing website Wikileaks.
As site founder Julian Assange sat through another day of his extradition hearing at Belmarsh Magistrates’ Court, in London, cable 11BEIJING439 was mysteriously uploaded from an unknown location within Belmarsh Magistrates’ Court, in London.
The cable dated 11th February, 2011, states: “Derision toward US Government and Embassy now prolific, frequently personal. Chinese government finds ongoing extradition case in London of great amusement.
“Morale very low in the Embassy. No one dare leave building for fear of further mockery. Alternative career options considered.”
It continues: “Resolution on Assange case strongly urged, reassurance over the privacy and security of these cables required. One more leak could herald an early conclusion to this ambassador’s suicidal tendancy.
“Tell my wife I love her, and I’m sorry about that whole thing with Lisa.”
Under the document’s sub-heading ‘Bullying Tactics’ the ambassador gives a detailed analysis of his deteriorating relationship with Chinese officials.
“Anonymous call to cell phone, only laughing can be detected on the line. Contact terminated without engagement of discourse.
“About 17 tense minutes pass. Email from Chinese official sent to Embassy suggesting Assange be gagged with our testicles. Second email retracts earlier advice, since the US Government is ‘without balls’.
“Within two hours, all of our Facebook profile pictures have been modified to an image of Hu Jintao pointing and laughing, menacingly.
“Our statuses each read: ‘Useless American, could not silence mouse. When Wikileak finish, PROC dominant superpower. Bye bye!!!'”
The cable also hints at months of diplomatic fragility, with the Chinese initially offering their help and advice over Wikileaks, suggesting they knew someone who could ‘sort Assange out’.
After the Americans rejected the advice, including a proposal for the US to ‘install one of its dictators in Sweden’, the Chinese appear to have turned against them.
“Watch and learn, wide eyes,” an excerpt from the cable quotes a junior Chinese official.
“This is the dissident address. This is the phone number for dissident assassin. This is the arrest warrant for dissident’s extended family.
“Go figure, asshole.”
After the judge at Belmarsh Mags once again adjourned the hearing of Assange’s extradition case today, anti-government protestors in Egypt celebrated a more decisive verdict in the case of Hosni Mubarak’s presidency.
US Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, groaned: “The protestors in Egypt have shown what can be achieved through dissent, discord, disobedience, determination, knowledge, honesty, peace, the social media.
“None of which are American dreams.”
