Wikileaks Founder “Annoyed” At 9/11 Theories

Julian Assange

Conspiracy theorists have begun developing their own ideas about Wikileaks founder Julian Assange after he said in a recent interview that he is “annoyed” at “false” conspiracy theories surrounding the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

“I’m constantly annoyed that people are distracted by false conspiracies such as 9/11, when all around we provide evidence of real conspiracies, for war or mass financial fraud,” Assange told The Belfast Telegraph in an interview published July 19.

When asked about whether he believes in conspiracy theories, Assange said, “I believe in facts about conspiracies. Any time people with power plan in secret, they are conducting a conspiracy. So there are conspiracies everywhere. There are also crazed conspiracy theories. It’s important not to confuse these two. Generally, when there’s enough facts about a conspiracy we simply call this news.”

Last November, Wikileaks released several thousand pager and text messages that were sent on September 11, 2001.

That move was widely applauded by most within the so-called “9/11 Truth Movement.” Assange’s latest comments, however, have gotten another reaction.

“Very disappointed with Mr. Assange lately,” wrote citizenx on Alex Jones’ Prison Planet forum. “Beginning to think the people who say he is/was CIA are right. Not just the 911 thing.”

“This casts further doubt on that whole ‘I cracked AES 256bit encryption and was able to walk into a marine base with a writable CD-ROM in hand, walk up to the CD-RW writer and burn a copy of all the files’ excursion….,” wrote another “Truther,” squarepusher., one of the most established websites on the subject, wrote that “Mr.Assange seems to have conveniently forgotten that 9/11 may be, in a very concrete sense, a ‘conspiracy for war’, leading directly to the wars in Afghanistan, Iraq and the permanent “War on Terror”.”

Another established 9/11 conspiracy website,, which has been highly skeptical of Assange for some time now, wrote that the Wikileaks founder is either  “profoundly ignorant” of the evidence, picking his battles, or running a honeypot operation.

Assange has not responded to the reaction to his statements.


  • I don't buy into all the 9/11 conspiracy theories myself, but this is an interesting development in the Wikileaks story.

    Why would Assange, who is the new vanguard of exposing government secrets and conspiracies, outright dismiss the largest government conspiracy theory since the JFK assassination?

    Many would reject the idea that Assange is government disinfo because, after all, he's exposing military secrets that have been proven embarrassing to the government. But the bulk of the info he's exposed has been from the Bush era. And, some of the released documents actually support the agenda of the current administration, such as how dangerous Pakistan has become.

    So, could Assange be an Obama-approved project that discredits and embarrasses the military accomplishments of the Bush Administration, while simultaneously continuing cover-ups that are bigger than just one administration?

    Just asking….

  • The US government's official story of how 9/11 happened is itself a crackpot conspiracy theory that in fact violates the laws of physics and is therefore a huge lie:

    Assange's job is to distract attention away from this glaringly obvious fact.

  • I don't know if this good or bad news… It could/would be better if those who believe the official story end up being conduits of information which undermine it…. Try this: and try :

  • my question is usA GOVT that Do u think wikileaks persons related to alqaeda? USA GOVT honestly accept these activities and stop to thinking ABOUT WAR?usA govt drems to capture whole world like adolf hitler?

  • 9/11- The us Gov? How could a inept president and a government that can’t even deliver a post card to the right adress,pull off a job like 9/11 with out a hitch? and thats only after being in the office for 9 months. I havent seen anything the government can do with out a plethera of snafu’s. Come on now.

  • As one who had been well aware of the attacks of 9-11 since 1997 I find 9-11 conspiracy theories to be preposterous. Anyone able to reason for himself can dismiss the majority of them almost immediately. Absolutely, the attacks were the result of a conspiracy, but not the utterly ridiculous conspiracies that truthers and so-called 9-11 scholars assert. In fact truthers give the truth a bad name. They disgrace the memory of those who were injured and killed on September 11, 2001.

    However, I did tell about 130 people about those attacks over a period of four years before they happened. Detailed information I gave to law enforcement in Stuart, Florida in 1998 and in early 2001 was no conspiracy theory, and that information WAS CONCEALED before and after the attacks were executed. This I know for an irrefutable fact. I told them the details myself. No conspiracy theory here. This I know.

  • It seems like the government let 911 happen, helped the bad guy to get away, and used this as an excuse for war. They should publish all the leaks even if they are misinformation but not if it is dangerous for some (good?) persons.
