Subject: DA Notice Letter of Advice to All UK Editors – Further Wikileaks Disclosures

To All Editors

Impending Further National Security Disclosures by Wikileaks

I understand that Wikileaks will very shortly release a further mass of US official documents onto its internet website. The full scope of the subject matter covered by these documents remains to be seen, but it is possible that some of them may contain information that falls within the UK’s Defence Advisory Notice code. Given the large number of documents thought to be involved, it is unlikely that sensitive UK national security information within these documents would be recognised by a casual browser. However, aspects of national security might be put at risk if a major UK media news outlet brought such information into obvious public prominence through its general publication or broadcast.

Therefore, may I ask you to seek my advice before publishing or broadcasting any information drawn from these latest Wikileaks’ disclosures which might be covered by the five standing DA Notices. In particular, would you carefully consider information that might be judged to fall within the terms of DA Notice 1 (UK Military Operations, Plans and Capabilities) and DA Notice 5 (UK Intelligence Services and Special Forces). May I also ask you to bear in mind the potential consequential effects of disclosing information which would put at risk the safety and security of Britons working or living in volatile regions where such publicity might trigger violent local reactions, for example Iran, Iraq, Pakistan and Afghanistan?

As always, I am available 24/7 to offer DA Notice guidance…

Yours Sincerely,

Andrew Vallance

Air Vice-Marshal
Secretary, Defence Press and Broadcasting Advisory Committee

    U.S. Prepares Allies for Embarrassing Wikileaks

    The U.S. Department of State has been working overtime to warn its allies that Wikileaks could be releasing this weekend highly sensitive details about the inner workings of government and diplomatic relations.

    U.S. Embassy officials in Canada, Australia, Britain, Turkey and Israel, among others, have all warned their counterparts about the impending release.

    Previously, Wikileaks said the release would be “seven times” as large as the Iraq and Afghanistan war documents released in October.

    State Department Spokesman P.J. Crowley said Wednesday that Wikileaks is in possession of “classified cab les,” although he did not elaborate on their content.

    Even the expenses scandal was handed to them on a plate. Useless c*u*n*ts to a man. Newspapers filled with celeb pictures and Tiffany (23) from Stourbridge (34-24-34) telling us how worried she is about North Korea. And that’s the Telegraph.

    The BBC reporting faithfully from College Green the vacuous mouthings of some vagrant Labour shadow fuckwit.

    40 years ago when I was just a kid, the least trusted people in the UK were politicians, journalists, estate agents and lawyers. 20 years ago I used to think people who thought like that they were just cynical old fuckers.

    They weren’t cynical. They were just realistic.

    I think the government is pissing in the wind if they think they can stop the flow of information, unless they behave like China or Iran and apply complete control to the internet.

    The days when Maggie Thatcher was able to stop the pubilication of a book about the secret service activities in the UK, but didn’t even suceed in preventing its publication around the world are long gone.

    Now that the internet is here they have no chance and all the better for it. Lets see what governments are really doing in our name.

    My wish is that more will come out about the Al-Megrahi cover up and the deal in the desert.

    I hate to intrude in the comment mong-fest, but I’m quite pleased that we’re trying, no matter how ineffectually, to counter the damage caused by the US’ monumental security breach. Fair dos, if someone has evidence of Gordon Brown pocketting rolls of £20 notes, then it needs to come out. But if its the name of some poor bloody Afghan farmer who spoke out because he was sick of girls having acid thrown on them for wanting to learn to read, then frankly censor away. I’m all for bringing corruption etc to light, but how much of this will actually do that. And how much of this will lead to piss poor bastards in hovels getting slotted so some hipster twat can tell his next conquest how he stuck it to the man.

    That said, the real wankers in this are whichever complete and utter moron of a US general allowed such unprecedented information to be accessible to some pissed off private with a USB stick. Much as I wouldn’t piss in Julius Assange’s teeth if his mouth were on fire, and cheerfully hope he gets to use Ikea’s prison range, the person who should be torn apart by wild horses first is whichever complete and utter muppet allowed his little friend to get the info in the first place. Sods law they’ve probably been promoted.

    As 7/11 will have informed you we are all at risk from the cheery, happy-clappy force for happiness that is Islam.

    I actually prefer it when those with an issue with our government take direct action against our government. At the moment that appears to be confined to the grunts of the NUS but it may be that, in time, the religion of peace concentrate their ire not on the 60 million who just want to get on with their life but the 650 or so who are content to go along wiyth any imbecility as long as that’s the party’s agenda for today.

    Look at that C*u*n*t Winnick. Supporting his fifth column trashing private property but utterly complicit in voting…

    Oh aye. Very happy to have folk taking direct action about having to pay 30K to be hidden from the dole queues…

    Voted strongly for introducing student top-up fees.

    but I bet he’d be dead against folk jabbing him in the chest about his knee-jerk support for the Iraq war. The useless c*u*n*t.

    Voted very strongly for the Iraq war.

    Panic over leaked British secrets: U.S. puts No.10 on alert as 3m documents are set to go online says:

    U.S. warns Britain over new WikiLeaks revelations that will ‘expose corruption between allies’

    3 million documents set to go online
    Bombshell leak thought to include U.S. assessments of Gordon Brown
    Secret talks on return of Lockerbie bomber to Libya may also be leaked

    Allegations ‘include U.S. backing of Kurdish terrorists’
    U.S. diplomats face being kicked out of countries in backlash
    Corrupt politicians expected to be named and shamed

    David Cameron was warned last night by America that damaging secrets of the ‘special relationship’ are about to be laid bare.
    The U.S. ambassador to London made an unprecedented personal visit to Downing Street to warn that whistleblower website WikiLeaks is about to publish secret assessments of what Washington really thinks of Britain.

    The website is on the verge of revealing almost 3million documents, including thousands of sensitive diplomatic cables sent to Washington from the American embassy in London.

    The bombshell leak is thought to include U.S. assessments of Gordon Brown’s personality and his prospects of winning the General Election, and secret discussions on the return of the Lockerbie bomber to Libya.

    Assessments of David Cameron’s election chances and his private assurances to U.S. officials may also be included, Government sources believe.

    Fox News in the US has noticed that the audience is shifting, with one third of Americans believing 911 was an inside job. Two weeks ago they ran a programme saying they were more open-minded than they were on it. Wonderful thing, the internet, at breaking the power of shadow governments. Murdoch is starting to break ranks and go Tea Party. The same will come to Britain in time. I look forward to the first programme admitting the London Tube Bombing was a false flag, carried out with Blair’s knowledge in advance.

  103. 103

    The file is about 2 gig in size, with nearly 3 million documents in it.

    It’s also encrypted using 256 bit AES, and so far Wikileaks hold the key, so until they’re ready to drop the big one it’s most unlikely anyone without a quantum computer could read anything.

    Wait for Sunday – I’m sure the Grauniad and maybe even the Telegraph will have the goods.

    Tony E says:

    The letter itself seems like quite a measured response to the situation. He doesn’t threaten, just requests that the journalists in question refer to him any material which they believe might apprach the normal standing D notices for advance clearance.

    Ok, it might be finger in the dyke and probably won’t have much effect, but he couldn’t really just sit and do nothing.

    As it is, I would imagne that the coalition are quite relaxed about this. The most obvious outcome is that the previous Labour government was allowing all sorts of corruption and collusion with foriegn agents with little thought of the consequences. There will also be advice to US ambasadors which probably states that they though Gordon was insane and not to be trusted. There will be some FCO/State Frencie Bashing which will give the government plenty of opportunity to get rid of Brown’s civil service chums.

    The most dangerous things to come out might be assessments where the EU/Eurozone is headed, assessments of coalition politicians and possibly collusion with foreign terrorists against other states. None of this is likely to hurt the coalition too much as it has not been in office long enough to be responsible for it.

    That’s a good analysis, and probably very close to the truth. From what I’ve heard on the Beeb, the thrust of the Yanks’ warning is about embarrassing remarks about allies. Clearly, saying nasty things about, for example, Brown or British embassies abroad will not help things along, but doesn’t really have a major impact on security matters.

    That being so, the US feels obliged to inject some security implications, whether true, hyperbole or downright lies, in order to give suppression some legitimacy which would otherwise not be the case if it was merely about snide remarks and hurt feelings.

Whether you believe in God or not this is pretty impressive as it also screws with accepted physics in that matter can neither be destroyed nor a it be created.

    I agree, the media is just a handful of people manipulating the Masses point of view. The worse offender is the BBc, unless they become 100% transparent across the board and declare the true political gender of ALL its employees then this will remain so. Failure to do so will always throw up the question, is the BBc impartial? About 17 years ago we went to Romania and were amazed at Ceausescu’s regime, state run media was a terrible manipulation of the truth with up to 80% of air time dedicated to Rom. Gov. propaganda. Income tax under his regime was running at 70 % and guess what there was a handful of very rich at the top and some very poor people at the bottom.

    So yes JMG2 40 years ago I was brought up to not trust politicians, journalists, estate agents and lawyers but I will emphasis to my children not to trust the state run media, it is and will always be the biggest offender.

    Whilst the Wikileaks information will be no doubt fascinating the reality of accessing government communications between or amongst each other is a double edged sword.

    Plenty of us must have,at one point or another, considered that these days anything we commit to the or pretty much anything else is no longer confidential. Whilst we are not criminals or terrorists we have nothing really to conceal but that does not mean we should relish the fact that our private conversations, opinions or thoughts on any matter should be publicly known.

    If governments cannot rely on confidential communication the whole ethos of diplomacy is put at risk. That in itself can only lead to raised tensions and give succour to those that would or could undermine countries or individuals or groups within them.

    I believe we should always support absolute freedom of speech and information but revelations and consequences resulting from the exercising of that right,without our acquiescence, must concern us all.

    Remember that all the cables will tell us is that the US had information that X was true – not that X was actually true. Informants and reports have been known to be wildly inaccurate.

    OTOH the concept of a metaphor (in general) and a fable (in particular) implies a narrative that can have more than one referent: the ‘obvious’ one and a ‘coded’ one. It remains a mystery to me why so many so many scientific people continue to be stupid about this. Can it be insecurity?

    DA Notices, the last of which was issued in April 2009 after sensitive defence documents were photographed using a telephoto lens in the hand of Assistant Commissioner Bob Quick as he arrived at No 10 Downing Street for a briefing, are requests not to publish, and therefore not legally enforceable.

    AC1 is a tinfoil hat wearing conspiracy theorist who believed the lies told by Bush and Blair. He believes the ‘official’ conspiracy theory of 9/11 too even after the commission members and their legal council have publicly admitted that the official 9/11 commission report, their own report, is not the truth.

    This wikileak will contain a lot of true and accurate and genuine info, some of it will be a bit embarrassing diplomatically, but none will cause Bush or Blair to be arrested and charged with crimes.

    Hidden within the mountain of truth will be the lies and propaganda that one nation needs out in public to harm their enemies.

    People are more likely to believe those lies, because of how they are disseminated into the public domain. It would be more believable than having a secretary of state announce these lies from a press conference.

    LONDON: British spies promoted an impostor whom they believed was a top Taliban commander key to the Afghan peace process, paying him several hundred thousand dollars, reports said on Friday.

    Britain’s foreign intelligence service MI6 believed the man to be insurgent leader Mullah Akhtar Muhammad Mansour, a figure capable of negotiating with US and Afghan officials, The Times and The Washington Post reported. Agents even flew the man on Royal Air Force transport planes from Pakistan to Kabul on several occasions, but it now appears he was either a minor rebel, a shopkeeper or even just a conman, the reports said.

    Something Stinks about Wikileaks – By F. William Engdahl, 3 August 2010
    Since the dramatic release of a US military film of a US airborne shooting of unarmed journalists in Iraq, Wiki-Leaks has gained global notoreity and credibility as a daring website that releases sensitive material to the public from whistleblowers within various governments. Their latest “coup” involved alleged leak of thousands of pages of supposedly sensitive documents regarding US informers within the Taliban in Afghanistan and their ties to senior people linked to Pakistan’s ISI military intelligence. The evidence suggests however that far from an honest leak, it is a calculated disinformation to the gain of the US and perhaps Israeli and Indian intelligence and a coverup of the US and Western role in drug trafficking out of Afghanistan. Since the posting of the Afghan documents some days ago the Obama White House has given the leaks credibility by claiming further leaks pose a threat to US national security. Contd…

    Not Moslems. They are for the most part good gentle people. They did not carry out 911 or 7/7. These were false flag inside jobs carried out by our own governments to commit us to wars we otherwise would not have agreed to.

    These are far more dangerous – our own governments who think our lives are expendable to their schemes and ambitions.

    They bomb us and use propaganda to disguise their dirty work as that of others. They bankrupt our once healthy economies. They kidnap our children and commit them to institutions where they can be raped with impunity.

    I would rather a Moslem any day to David Cameron, Tony Blair and those others who think us a sub-human species that they can subjugate, murder and exploit.

    Read Christoper Booker today for the most disgusting story you will ever read. As I say bring us Moslems please. Fear instead our own government. They are the ones that need to be destroyed before they destroy us.

    If Cameron thinks he is a good person who cares about the quality to our lives, why does he permit child seizure from innocent parents to be continuing and growing in Britain?

    These stories of state child seizure should be carried by the Daily Express now. They must expose the disgusting acts of the same politicians and bureaucrats that desire us to be ruled by the EU and other OWG supranational institutions, who are so distant and powerful, they believe themselves untouchable whatever they do.
