Julian Assange, the Wikileaks founder is considered by many to be the most dangerous man in the world. And has emerged as a new power broker on the world scene. He is engaged in an epic struggle with some of the most powerful nations on Earth, including the United States and Russia. Both of whom would like to see him dead in a real bad way.
All the while he manages to somehow stay one step ahead of security forces, bouncing from country to country, hotel room to hotel room, only to pop up suddenly from out of nowhere to do an impromptu televised news conference somewhere and then pull another one of his world famous "vanishing acts".
The question is how does he do it?
We already know why he does it, not so much to elude authorities but to thwart state sponsored assassination attempts.
Before, during and after the Wikileaks dump of hundreds of thousands of top secret war documents pertaining to the Afghan and Iraq wars, there have been discussions by certain elements who serve the state of whether or not to have him assassinated.
RUSSIA'S FSB to Wikileaks founder: "WE COULD DESTROY YOU!"
In Russia the FSB ("Federal Security Services") aka: "Federal 'naya sluzhba bezopasnosti Rossiyskoy Federatsii", which employs over 350,000 employees, and plays a role in counter intelligence and surveillance - one of the most notorious spy agencies in the world is tracking Assange every move.
They are apparently taking Wikileaks threat to reveal secrets very seriously, according to Russia Profile. In fact the FSB Center for Information Security was quoted recently by Life News as saying:
"Preliminary analysis shows that there is no threat posed to Russia by Julian Assange's resource...You have to understand that if there is the desire and right team, it's possible to shut it down forever."
Such an ideal threat should not be discounted. Links between hacker cells, organized crime and the FSB are certainly credible. In Andrei Soldaton book "Russian secret services" details how the Russian FSB "maintains a sophisticated alliance with unofficial hackers, such as those who carry out cyber attacks on the web sites of enemies of the state."
If this were not bad enough, unconfirmed reports state that Russian "wet ops" teams have been pre deployed in the event that Kremlin leaders decide that Assange must die!
Assange is also being tailed by the FBI, CIA, DIA, NSA, MI6, ASIS, AVID. FSB, SVR and others just to name a few of the world secret intelligence services. He is also hated and feared by some of America's elite.
for example wants the Wikileaks "criminal"Julian Assange "hunted down, grabbed and put on trial."
Sounds good comrade - the problem is how are you going to do it?
As it is Assange continues to play a very deadly game of "cat and mouse" with spy agencies all over the world, and besting all of them!
He is certainly the most targeted individual ever to emerge on the world scene in recent times.
It's also very interesting that he can outflank them all at will, using nothing more than a team of dedicated private security personnel and a few bodyguards.
"No I'm not running for my life, but we do have to take extra security precautions" Julian Assange to Israel's channel two in an interview in London.
Assange has reportedly hired the worlds best ex- special forces bodyguards money can buy.
So secret are the names of these private military security personnel that Assange himself doesn't know.
These men are near to Assange at all time, and hide themselves in the shadows and behind stage at news conferences. They also surround the building and guard entrances and exits.
During news conference they are rumored to sometimes pose as journalists carrying unconventional weapons of their own design.
They also employ many methods used in counter intelligence, including switching vehicles. In one case in London authorities tracked Assange Black SUV to a covered parking garage and moments later 3 identical Black SUV's left the garage traveling in 3 different directions. About 30 minutes later Assange was spotted getting into another vehicle and leaving the area.
That kind of sophistication cost's a lot of money and requires a degree of coordination that would make the US secret service, who guard the President of the United States look sick.
On thing is clear whoever is orchestrating his personal security are the best of the best. I suppose they have to be in order to keep Assange alive.
