Julian Assange's visit in the Swedish capital achieved several things. Assange will be writing for Aftonbladet and WikiLeaks will be applying for full source protection under Swedish constitutional law. Assange already works with the New York Times, the Guardian, and Der Spiegel. But he's not yet worked as a columnist for any publication. Starting now that will change.

Please visit the link provided for the complete story.

Julian Assange is going higher profile and will get official source protection from Swedes government, the pentagon is not going to like it. I wonder how this will play on the diplomatic channels.

Very much on topic is to enter that wik search "royal mottos of swedish monarches".
Read down to the 1809 King's motto and click the "note1" reference.
Then read the current King's motto.
Comments anyone?
My impression is they are very disgusted with our leadership choices in America.
No wonder this is allowed to happen.

good move

everyone should support wikileaks, since they attack injustices in the world

if people support WAR because it will give them PEACE, come on, you wont support wikileaks, because there is a RISK that someone will use that to kill people?

lol ... some people are just living in their own little manipulated world and deserve to be trashed

For the lazys:


1809: The welfare of the people my highest law[1]
[1]Compare with the motto of the U.S. state of Missouri (1821): "Let the welfare of the people be the supreme law". Originally from Cicero's De Legibus, Book III, Part III, Sub. VIII.

Present: For Sweden – With the Times

One interesting side of this, is by providing sources protection Wikileaks have to not undermine Sweden national security...
