Right now it's getting tough for me to leave work for 2 days or so, My boss isin't really happy that i was always leaving during day and night when i actually was suppose to be working so i left aprox. 4 days when i was seeing you guys then the 2 days in DK, They aren't quiet open for allowing me to leave again unfortunately but i'll push them.

Ok, hopefully you can work it out because we want to see you again, but don't take chances that might make your boss inform your other organization about these trips. We can get you the money in person, but not before hand.

From: [EMAIL ADDRESS] Date: Sun , Nov 13, 2011 at 7:58 PM To: [ALLEGED FBI EMAIL ADDRESS]

Some New Development in the argument between me and wI.

Dan is the mediator or what's it call in english (the person to negatiate peace between me and WL) WL won't file any charges against me. And they are quietly trying to end this case without court or any media attention. But they still wan't a refund obviously after i have calculated what i think i really owe then and all that.

Hey, we are trying to get our schedules together to see you again and hear in person what is going on and if we can help. We are thinking around the first week of December. Where do you have the most other drives? Does Nov 29-30 or Dec 6-7 work for you? Keep your head up,

From: [EMAIL Date: Sun, Nov 20, 2011 at 3:05 PM To: [ALLEGED FBI EMAIL

I can come to the states if that helps. On 28-2nd dec i'li be on a Kidnap and Ransom Crisis Course but i'li reschedule that - so im pretty much available anytime.

From: [ALLEGED FBI EMAIL Date: Mon, Nov 21,2011 at 2:38 PM To: [EMAIL ADDRESS1@gmaiLcom

Ok, thanks for the flexibility. I thought you had some hard drives in various places outside your country co-located with WL servers. I just want to make sure when we next meet, that we can get the most data possible. Right now, I understand that you have two new hard drives with you plus the others in various other locations. Let me know where those other drives are and we can figure out where is the best place to meet. Thanks,

From: [EMAIL Date: Mon, Nov 21, 2011 at 4:59 PM To: [ALLEGED FBI EMAIL ADDRESS]

Due to the current situation with WL - 1m not sure i can reach out for those harddrives.

I spoke to Dan today (Who's handling negotiations between me and WL) Kristinn wan'ts some kind of a agreement on wednesday and i think that possibility of going to the Hall is getting worse every day that passes and might get zero if i can't propose any plan to Kristinn - since i won't get into the hall with 50 $ or 10$ So i really need an answer prefereble before wedensday if you guys will assist.

From: [EMAIL Date: Tue, Nov 22, 2011 at 7:29 PM To: [ALLEGED FBI EMAIL

Hey, Time is getting really little on this matter unfortutnately . If i go tomorrow with no answer or no plan what so ever or anything to propose to them or him, then our hope and/or chance will be really little.


Date: Wed, Nov 23,2011 at 2:17 PM To: [EMAIL ADDRESS]

We can't help in this respect at this time . We'll still plan on meeting you soon though. Good luck.

From: [EMAIL ADDRESS] Date: Wed , Nov 23 , 2011 at 2:32 PM To: [ALLEGED FBI EMAIL ADDRESS]

Are we still planning for the 29-30Nov?

From: [ALLEGED FBI EMAIL ADDRESS] Date: Mon, Nov 28,2011 at 4:04 PM To : [EMAIL ADDRESS]

No, I will be in touch with you shortly.

From: [EMAIL ADDRESS] Date: Sun, Dec 4 , 2011 at 5:34 PM To: [ALLEGED FBI EMAIL ADDRESS]

hey , you have any idea when i will be able to get the 1860 $ ?

From: [EMAIL ADDRESS]@gma Date: Mon , Dec 12, 2011 at 4:34 PM To: [ALLEGED FBI EMAIL ADDRESS]

any idea when or if i will hear from u guys again?

From: [ALLEGED FBI EMAIL ADDRESS] Date: Fri, Dec 16, 2011 at 5:49 PM To: [EMAIL ADDRESS]

Yep, you are going to hear from me early next week . I want to travel to meet you again soon. Sorry for the silence on my end recently, I had some issues I need to work through for our meeting, but we should be good going forward. Thanks for sticking with us.

From: [EMAIL ADDRESS] Date: Sun , Dec 18, 2011 at 8:28 PM To: [ALLEGED FBI EMAIL ADDRESS]

oki doki.

From: [EMAIL ADDRESS] Date: Tue , Dec 20 , 2011 at 4:02 AM


Just one question about the 1860$ ?

From: [EMAIL Date: Thu, Dec 22, 2011 at 7:34 AM To: [ALLEGED FBI EMAIL

Hey I have to raise my dissapointed a little here.

Every time you required something from me , hard drives or to travel or anything in perspective everything was requested to happen ASAP . but now when i tried to contact you guys i almost waited a month for a reply from you guy witch stated will contact early next week . Now it's obviously not anymore early this week. And when i ask about a 1860$ that i was told i was going to get at our next meeting . I get no answers or anything. I keep on holding to some hope witch im not sure what is.

But my question is ... what's going on?

.. .Witch week were you talking about.. ....

From: [ALLEGED FBI EMAIL Date: Fri, Jan 6, 2012 at 9:11 PM To: [EMAIL

Ok, I hear you and I apologize for leaving you out there. You deserve to be frustrated with us. There were some bureaucratic issues beyond my control that prevented me from maintaining contact. I thought I had those worked out when I sent you my last email, but then those issues resurfaced and I couldn't follow up. Suffice to say, our relationship has been problematic for some others. This is not an ordinary case. But those were not my issues and I have been diligently trying to work out those issues so we can continue our relationship . I still want to meet as we discussed before and believe we can continue down that road . Are you still willing to meet me in the same third country we met before? Beside all that, how are you doing? Is WL still threatening you? Let me know what's going on with you and if you are still willing to meet. What week is good for you? Thank you for your understanding,

From: [EMAIL Date: Mon, Jan 9, 2012 at 1:04 AM To: [ALLEGED FBI EMAIL

Thanks for this, this clarifies alot of things :-) Off course i'm willing to meet. No i haven't heard from WL for some time, And i don't think that they have been in any contact with Dan either so it might look like that they are just making this fade silently away i guess .... something like i shut up and they don't do anything . Any week is good for me right now. Just working slowly and working out my debts and stuff so any week suits. Sure the same country suits fine If that's a problem i could also come to you. Iv'e been keeping contact with sabu and he's always talking about information and such and providing them - he's still on the idea that im still with WL and i haven't exactly been hurrying to tell him other wise since i thought it might be beneficial to you guys that he still thinks that. He still want's to meet up with me.

From: [ALLEGED FBI EMAIL Date: Mon , Jan 9, 2012 at 3:55 PM To : [EMAIL

Great, thanks for the update and understanding. Let me talk to some people and get back to you with a proposal for meeting . Take care,

Hey, I think we are ready to start up again . If you are still willing to come to the US, how about flying to DC on Feb 7th and returning a few days later? We'd put you up in a hotel. I'd like to talk to you about a few things we should both do before then to make it productive. What is the best number and time to call you at next week, say Monday or Tuesday? Thanks,

From: [EMAIL ADDRESS] Date: Sat, Jan 21,2012 at 3:14 AM To: [ALLEGED FBI EMAIL ADDRESS]

00354-7779470 Time, doesn't matter - just remember the time changes so it won't be int he middle of the night DC sounds good . But i don't think it's any problem comming - just that i will go back to Iceland that's the only thing i'd like.

From: [ALLEGED FBI EMAIL ADDRESS] Date: Tue, Jan 24, 2012 at 3:54 PM To: [EMAIL ADDRESS]

A guy from Princeton Univercity, Charlie Metzger always want's to do something for Wlkileaks and put up some debate between Daniel Ellsberg and Julian Assange , what should i do about that? continue to ignore him or start talking to him again?

If i can ask .. . what is it that you expect from this trip?

You can obviously decline to answer i won't go cry of you decline. :-)

From: [ALLEGED FBI EMAIL Date: Wed, Feb 8, 2012 at 8:37 PM To: [EMAIL

Ok, I'll get tickets pretty soon for those dates . Your question about what to expect from this trip is a good one and I'm glad you asked it. I was going to talk to you when I'm back on the phone , but in general, I wanted to spend some time talking to you about your current situation and relationship with a number of people . Also, we have spoken before about the drives and we'll get a chance to image those. Finally , I wanted to talk to you about future things we can do. One of those things is you starting to chat with those people we discussed on the phone. We'll talk about specific goals of the chats, but you can get a head start before our meet by just getting in touch and catching up with them. If you need to know who specifically, we can discuss on the phone. Thanks,
