Pollster Peter Wickham named in Wikileaks cables as an informer

SKNVibes "BASSETERRE, St. Kitts - Since the release by Wikileaks of hundreds of classified documents about the Caribbean, in which they named Pollster and Head of CADRES Peter Wickham as an informer, many are left wondering whether Wickham was a spy, double agent or whistle blower while he moved among OECS governments, including St. Kitts and Nevis, over the last five years.

The documents contain many crucial revelations and are part of leaked confidential cables allegedly taken from the US embassy in Barbados. They quote Peter Wickham on a variety of topics.

In one entry of Feb. 3 2006, the then US Ambassador Mary Kramer states: “Wickham has met periodically with Emboffs (Embassy Officials) over the past several years to offer his views on a variety of issues”. In an entry dated Sept 22, 2006, she refers to Wickham as “a credible source”."
