A Wikileaks expert has mysteriously disappeared in the Arctic Circle. Big League Politics reports:
According to a New York Times report, a cybersecurity expert tied to WikiLeaks has disappeared without a trace on August 20, last seen in a remote northern Norwegian town near the Arctic Circle.
“The disappearance of Arjen Kamphuis, 46, has so far flummoxed a widening police investigation that has chased stray clues and false leads in Norway, Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands and Sweden,” the report said.
According to the report, Norwegian police do not know if Kamphuis was a victim of foul play, and they are investigating all possible angles.
“The uncertainty, and Mr. Kamphuis’s links to WikiLeaks, the anti-secrecy organization that has run afoul of governments and other powerful interests, has the internet buzzing with conspiracy theories,” according to the report. “Some suggest a kidnapping — or worse — involving Russia, the C.I.A., MI6, Islamists or the Clintons, while others ask if he intended to disappear, possibly on some secret assignment for WikiLeaks.”
Is this foul play?
