FBI given the bum's rush out of Iceland, score one for Wikileaks.


REYKJAVÍK (Rixstep) — FBI agents landed in Reykjavík without prior notification in an attempt to investigate WikiLeaks operations in the country, but Home Secretary Ögmundur Jónasson found out about the visit and forced them to leave the country, with the Icelandic government then issuing a formal protest to US authorities, according to Islandsbloggen.

The hunt for WikiLeaks by the US has on several occasions involved private individuals and companies on Iceland. Authorities in the US have for example succeeded in obtaining account information from Twitter on parliamentarian Birgitta Jónsdóttir. Jónsdóttir today refuses to travel to the US out of fear of being arrested for her connections with WikiLeaks.

Birgitta Jónsdóttir is also one of the people behind a new piece of Icelandic media legislation which will make the country a bastion for freedom of speech and source protection. The law proposal is still a long way from being completed and can still take years before it's ratified by the Icelandic parliament.

I have seen her in an interview with Alex Jones (skype) and the Wikileaks guy walked around in the back, LOL!

Perhaps the Icelanders...

... didn't want any of the Federal buildings bombed.

Good news.

Since EU had already lost all balls, Iceland has a courage to gamble on the fact that USA government might feel shy to crush a country of white people. Should a third world country tried to do the same, special forces would be already hinting to local government officials that their children's education at Harvard and their shopping in New York would be denied.

BAMF Iceland!

SO impressed!

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--


"According to my sources, Jónasson demanded that the FBI agents pack their bags, get back onboard, and leave the country."

You know those thugs showed up all in black, acting like bad-a$$es, not understanding that the entire world is NOT their playground...

I wish there was video. I want to hear that quote above in the proper dialect. "Pahck yer bahgs, git baack awn boort, und leef the coontry..." with the FBI agents looking more deflated with each phrase...

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.


You left out one of them mummbling, "Wait til daddy obama hears about this!"

That's Finnish

You Family Guy Lover ;)

Lima-1, out.

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.


I was shooting for this:

All of 'em sound alike to me... ;)

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

look out, here comes yet

look out, here comes yet another military "humanitarian" intervention and drone bombing to save the Iceland's citizens from their evil leaders.

Nevermind, Iceland is predominately white. Never fool the Sheeple with that. Got to be dark skinned to receive our military generosity.

Perhaps they'll just crank up Harrp

and focus it upon Iceland in the hopes of a massive volcanic eruption.

There are no politicians or bankers in foxholes.

Most excellent!

Iceland is looking like a great country to emigrate to - if they'll let us in!

If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.
James Madison

well Iceland let Bobby Fisher in

when the US government was trying to persecute him, for b.s. violations of unreasonable US laws. For example, going against the UN sanctions by playing a chess match in Yugoslavia when the UN had an economic embargo against them in the 1990s.
The US state department was very disappointed in Iceland when they granted him asylum.

Its cold, dark, & people are 1000 years worth of viking convicts

Think again. Iceland is named after ice. Its cold, dark, & people are descended from 1,000 years worth of viking convicts. If the world is wondering why they are tough with plundering bankers and FBI thugs, well, its cause they know a mass-murdering maniacal plunderer when they see one: its in the blood.*

*On the other hand, a girl in my school class was Icelantic, and she turned into a hippy. Must've been the sunshine!

"Cowards & idiots can come along for the ride but they gotta sit in the back seat!"

May I summarily direct you

to the back seat - where you belong.

You cold-blooded viking plunderers have no sense of humour

You cold-blooded viking plunderers have no sense of humour, I swear. FYI, the Pharaonic One (Barack Hussein) put us all in the back seat some time ago.

"Cowards & idiots can come along for the ride but they gotta sit in the back seat!"

@fightapathy, maybe you could do a bit more research

Iceland was not named after Ice and Greenland was not named after Green.

Lived in Iceland for 2 years. There is approximately 1% viking blood there. As for dark, naturally it is 6 months light and 6 months darker due to latitude. Cold, ya it's cold in winter, but not cold like the Great Lakes area due to the Gulf Stream and T-shirt warm in summer.

If you really want to know more, check out the Invasion of Iceland.

Iceland received their independence from Denmark in 1919 (or 1918), Iceland had followed a policy of strict neutrality. In 1939, Iceland had denied Germany's request for landing rights for Lufthansa trans-Atlantic aircraft.

Therefore, they were being consistent with their neutrality policy when they denied the British Foreign Office's request for military basing rights following Churchill's initiative.

Having asked nicely and gotten rebuffed for their efforts, the British government decided to land a detachment of Marines in Iceland on May 10, 1940, beginning a British military occupation that would last through August 1942.

The government of Iceland initially protested Britain's use of military force but reluctantly accepted the fact that they had no choice in the matter.

The US took over the military base in 1942 and finally close it in 2006.

The gulf oil false flag

could be to punish Iceland for getting rid of the banksters. The gulf stream has slowed considerably since the oil spill.

Now tell me:

What excuse will we need to go in and kick their asses?
The bankers are already pretty solidly upset with their actions.
So I know we have to find something they are doing against humanity.
If I could take the cold, I might consider that place as a go to.

I love my country
I am appalled by my government

I was thinking the same.

Since Iceland kicked out the bankers in 2007 and wrote off 92%-96% of their debt as "fraudulent," I was thinking we're going to need some excuse to go in there and set up a Central Bank.

Maybe that will be a part of the 2020 plan :(

Iceland: come show us the way.

Lima-1, out.
