Key witness in Assange case jailed in Iceland after admitting to lies and ongoing crime spree

Sigurdur Thordarson, a key witness for the FBI against Julian Assange, has been jailed in Iceland. The notorious alleged hacker and convicted pedophile was remanded to custody in Iceland's highest security prison, Litla Hraun, on September 24. Þórðarson´s lawyer, Húnbogi J. Andersen, confirms that he is in custody. Thordarson was given immunity by the FBI in exchange for testimony against Julian Assange.

Thordarson was arrested the same day he arrived back in Iceland from a trip to Spain, and was subsequently brought before a judge after police requested indefinite detention intended to halt an ongoing crime spree. The judge apparently agreed that Thordarson's repeated, blatant and ongoing offences against the law put him at high risk for continued re-offending.

[...] Thordarson is a key witness for the United States Justice Department according to documents presented to a UK court in an effort to secure the extradition of Julian Assange. He was recruited by US authorities to build a case against Assange after misleading them to believe he was previously a close associate of his. In a recent interview with Stundin he admitted to fabricating statements to implicate Assange and contradicted what he was quoted as saying in US court documents. In fact he had volunteered on a limited basis to raise money for Wikileaks in 2010 but was found to have used that opportunity to embezzle more than $50,000 from the organization. Julian Assange was visiting Thordarson's home country of Iceland around this time due to his work with Icelandic media and members of parliament in preparing the Icelandic Modern Media Initiative, a press freedom project that produced a parliamentary resolution supporting whistleblowers and investigative journalism.

    You have it completely backwards. The CIA was founded by literal Nazis (your people), who were spirited away from serving justice by the US:

    The FBI used Nazis too:

    From what has been made public of their activities, the FBI and CIA appear to share much of the ideology of nazi/fascist/alt-right/conservative*/kkk/christian identity/whatever Nazis are re-branding themselves as, at the moment.

    E.g.,
    MKULTRA - horrific human experimentation that would make any Nazi proud
    COINTELPRO - far-right white supremacist (Nazi-esq) operation against civil rights
    And, the too numerous to list, campaigns of torture, assassination, terror, etc.

    * Real conservatives are not these people, but Nazis have co-opted the term.

    Jesus fuck, you are stupid. That's how spying works. Your intelligence officers recruit the enemy as agents.

    Also, Wild Bill Donovan would probably shoot you in the face for calling him a Nazi. Take your 1984 revisionism elsewhere.

      "Wild Bill Donovan" would have been sent to the gallows if there was rule of law in the US.

      Your comment is a good example of what Upton Sinclair was referring to with, "wrapped in a flag".

      “When fascism comes to America it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross”

    Nope. The OSS and thus the CIA was full of Jews. Remember the "lamp shades made of Jew skin" psyop? Do you think it's a coincidence Biden, the race traitor, was made president through election fraud while he mobilizes the FBI to hunt out "the #1 threat of white supremacy" while appointing nearly all Jews to cabinet positions, while NGOs (non-gentile organizations) bring in millions of hostile non-whites and teach them in our own schools (bolshevik babysitters) that whitey is inherently evil? The USA has been increasingly owned by the Jews since at least 1913. This is why we stupidly killed our racial brothers in WW1 and WW2, went to Vietnam (uss liberty? Kennedy assassination?) and have since been busy destabilizing the middle east for the Greater Israel project, and allowing the NGOs to ship those refugees into Europe, while White race traitors get rich?

    As far as the FBI and civil rights. No non-whites should be in America. America is a nation founded by whites, for whites. The fact that they are still here is further evidence we have a parasitic infection. It starts from birth when brainwashed white parents let their newborn boys have their genitals mutilated, and later in childhood, when white children are taught the JEW psyop of Christianity. We have to break the spell and rid white nations of the Jew. The international Jew will undoubtedly start WW3 over any white nation trying to expel the parasite like they did in WW2, but it has to be done.
