New leaks of WikiLeaks documents revealed that the US Embassy in Baghdad has shipped more than 1 million kilograms of unknown goods from its Baghdad headquarters to different parts of the world.
"The shipment of mysterious goods from the US Embassy in Baghdad to other US embassies and consulates around the world has been revealed through the WikiLeaks database," the Helsinki Times reported in its translation report.
"The database pointed out that the orders to ship goods to all US embassies in the world have revealed that the headquarters of the US embassy in Baghdad has been the source of mail and the shipment of tons of cargo," noting that "Although the military shipment may be expected between Baghdad But the records showed that all US embassies across Europe, Africa, Asia, the Middle East and the Americas are receiving shipments from Baghdad. "
According to the WikiLeaks database, 540 tons of cargo was shipped from the United States in May 2018, while the documents indicated that the other main delivery destinations included Europe with 120 tonnes and Africa with 24 tons and only 2.5 tons Goods inside Iraq ".
He noted that "the content of supplies to the US embassy is not yet clear, although the application contract suggests that household appliances, carpets, electrical goods, linen, kitchenware, furniture, piano, refrigerators, books, Chinese utensils, clothing, Are among the materials sent, but in practice the transfer of many types of household materials across continents is questionable. It remains unclear whether the amount of the load is associated with many small payments or the transfer of a large amount in several small batches. "
"The results of the WikiLeaks database coincided with the discovery of an unknown former warehouse of the US Embassy near Malmy Airport in Finland, a convenient storage facility to receive a large truckload of incoming cargo. The documents also show that the US Embassy in Finland requested a new security fence for the warehouse complex in April 2018 and the purpose of the warehouse remains unknown. "
"The recent findings of the Wikileaks site raise concerns that the US Embassy in Baghdad may serve as a center for clandestine operations around the world. The database also reveals that the items listed as" tactical spy equipment "have been ordered to US embassies In Latin America, where Colombia and El Salvador received a range of spy cameras disguised in the form of pens, sunglasses, hats, USB drives and even t-shirts.
