First I doubt you know the meaning of eStalker...
But whe you write the following:
"Yes they are, this is but the 3rd set of documents leaked. The last batch were in December, before that it was the police reports prior to the extradition request even beibg issued."
Uhm, yeah. Now I'm confused. Is this a 3rd set of leaked documents or the third time a single set of documents have been leaked?
And since you seem to be an expert on this... what do you define as being leaked?
A reporter uncovering the documents? Or an anonymous source posting the documents on the 'net for all to see?
Heck, you stand there and accuse me of 'making up facts' as I post, yet you seem to be unclear on what you mean when you post.
To the best of my knowledge this is the first set of Assange's legal documents to be leaked anonymously to the web. If you know of other batches, please by all means share.
With respect to the leak coming from within Assange's camp in England, I refer you to the following quote:
"The documents appear to consist of pretrial discovery material that prosecutors provided to Assange’s Stockholm lawyer Björn Hurtig last year, which Hurtig subsequently faxed to the office of Assange’s British attorney Mark Stephens. The documents begin with a Nov. 23 cover letter addressed to Stephens’ co-counsel, in which Hurtig advises: “Please note that the documents are legally privileged information for Mr Julian Assange and nobody else.”"
I don't know about you, but when I have to fax confidential documents, I don't let the faxed documents out of sight. But I can't control the receiving end of the fax machine.
So I would say it would be most likely that the leak happened in the UK.
I'd say that this is the most plausible explanation.
But since you're supporting a nut jobber who's paranoid, lets introduce some alternative theories.
Theory #1: The UK law firm uses a fax server and the admin receives the fax and then emails them to the lawyer. The lawyer's e-mail account was then hacked by unknown hacker.
Theory #2: The original docs were scanned w cover letter, sent via e-mail. See theory #1
Theory #3: Unknown government agency has a tap on the lawyer's phones (either side) and intercepted the fax. Thus they are publishing this information as a way to further discredit Assange.
I would have even added a theory that the NSA intercepted the fax, but they monitor cell and satellite calls from around the world. Land lines would require a physical tap.
It seems to me, that you not only don't have your facts straight, but you seem to attack the poster not the content.
