    Another fake news story

    If you hear this, ignore it. Assange has been blacked out by the Ecuadorian embassy for more than a month. He couldn't release this. And he wouldn't even if he could.

    This is either made up totally by Newsweek (I don't give them credit for being that smart) or somebody in the government who wants to undermine Assange's credibility and trust.

    ICEPatrol: WikiLeaks Publishes Database of ICE Employees Despite Attempts to 'Censor' List

    WikiLeaks has published a searchable database of personal LinkedIn data of US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) employees, under the banner “ICEPatrol.” The Julian Assange-led whistleblowing platform said that it would be an “important public resource.”

    The archive is split into categories including location, job position, school attended and company, with some employees also being listed as working for other government branches including the U.S. Customs and Border Protection. But the majority of individuals, over 2,000, are tied to ICE. The federal agency was criticized this week for detaining and separating children from their families.

    The LinkedIn data was removed from websites GitHub, Medium and Twitter this week after being scraped by programmer Sam Lavigne, leading to accusations of doxxing, which is the unwanted release of private information. In a blog post on June 19, Lavigne confirmed he uploaded the repository online, slamming “inhumane surveillance and detention efforts” by ICE. USA Today reported WikiLeaks as saying the data had been "censored" online, however that tweet appears to have been deleted.

    The publicly-available LinkedIn data covers other federal agencies including Homeland Security, the Department of Justice, Air Force and the Navy. The ICEPatrol site holds headshots, job descriptions, education histories and personal biographies. WikiLeaks did not respond to a request for comment.

    I wouldn't respond either. Especially if I was being kept away from any way to communicate with the outside world like he is. But I wouldn't bother dignifying phony stories from the likes of this rag even if I could.
