While WikiLeaks is milking the moment of publishing damaging information about the Swedish FM, the latter teases the whistleblower to do so to expose the emptiness of the accusations. “Sweden’s political kindergarten continues,” tweets WikiLeaks.
Foreign Minister Carl Bildt has rejected allegations of being a long-running American influence agent, saying it is a part of an FM’s job “to inform other countries about sensitive issues.”
WikiLeaks has threatened to expose the foreign minister of Sweden as an American agent since the 1970s if Stockholm continues to pursue Julian Assange’s extradition for questioning over sexual assault allegations, informed Swedish tabloid Expressen on February 22.

An internal WikiLeaks memo reviewed by Expressen proposes to publish classified data, organize blockades of Swedish embassies and boycotts of Swedish companies around the world.
These tough measures are meant to help Julian Assange, whose legal battle with the British justice system over extradition to Sweden has entered the final stage.
“I cannot imagine what it’s about. But let’s see if they have something to publish,” Bildt told the press in London when asked about the expected exposure.
Earlier WikiLeaks stated it has details of the documents showing that Carl Bildt’s contact in the US administration was former US presidential adviser Karl Rove.
WikiLeaks believes that the documents it has in its possession “reveal that Bildt cooperated with the American administration in a way that violates Swedish law,” the whistle-blowing site told Expressen. They say the publication will force Carl Bildt to resign.
“It will be the end of his political career,” they promise.
Bildt waved off conspiracy schemes, saying “I know a lot of people around the world,” adding he is not worried about the documents WikiLeaks has.
Having waited for two days for the promised grilling, on Friday morning Carl Bildt tweeted “Another day and WikiLeaks are still refusing to release the documents they plan to use in their ‘smear campaign’ against Sweden.”
“I note the information in Expressen that WikiLeaks is preparing a smear campaign, you can yourself figure out what I think about it,” Bildt told media.
In his blog Carl Bildt challenged WikiLeaks to publish the “damning report" so that "When that happens, this part of their planned ’smear campaign’ will quickly fall apart," Swedish FM wrote.
WikiLeaks is sure Stockholm has already struck a deal with Washington over Assange’s further extradition to the US once Sweden has got the whistleblower in its jurisdiction.
First and foremost, the US justice needs Assange to testify against former US soldier Bradley Manning, the man suspected passing hundreds of thousands of classified US documents and diplomatic cables to WikiLeaks. Quite possibly Assange will be charged with espionage if passed to the US justice.
The upcoming premiere of Julian Assange’s talk show on RT in March may provide a glimpse into WikiLeaks’ mechanics and more.
