"they" won't kill him, they'd rather make an example of him to put the fear into anyone else who would dare lift a curtain. That won't stop them
from using the MSM to try and encourage someone else to take things into their own hands, however.
Worst case we all might finally get to see what's in the insurance file. I hope it's worth it.
On the off chance you don't know there are a lot of cases dealing with espionage and prosecution of individuals. Assange is not being made an example
of, and as his followers are quick to point out, because no charges have been filed against him by the US.
If Assange goal was to expose corruption then I have a question for you. How does that stated goal work with these actions by Assange -
The hypocrisy demonstrated by Assange as well as Asange supporters is well documented.
Julian Assange Threatened To Sue Guardian For Publishing
WikiLeaks Cables: Vanity Fair
The Man Who Spilled the Secrets
On the afternoon of November 1, 2010, Julian Assange, the Australian-born founder of WikiLeaks.org, marched with his lawyer into the London office
of Alan Rusbridger, the editor of The Guardian. Assange was pallid and sweaty, his thin frame racked by a cough that had been plaguing him for weeks.
He was also angry, and his message was simple: he would sue the newspaper if it went ahead and published stories based on the quarter of a million
documents that he had handed over to The Guardian just three months earlier.
So he is all about releasing classified information because there should be no secrets, except when it comes to Assange and his megalomania.
Lets continue down this road and see where it leads -
In Rusbridger’s office, Assange’s position was rife with ironies. An unwavering advocate of full, unfettered disclosure of primary-source
material, Assange was now seeking to keep highly sensitive information from reaching a broader audience.
Hmmm.. Something Assange preaches against on a daily basis again except when it comes to him, and then the standards change for his own benefit.
Lets keep going -
He had become the victim of his own methods: someone at WikiLeaks, where there was no shortage of disgruntled volunteers, had leaked the last big
segment of the documents, and they ended up at The Guardian in such a way that the paper was released from its previous agreement with Assange—that
The Guardian would publish its stories only when Assange gave his permission.
So Assange is preaching openess and disclosure, to hold be accountible, again except when it comes to himself. For assange to make the statements he
did in his latest media encounter while at the same time he is breaking those very words he accuses others of doing.
The Guardian had the files leaked to them yet Assange makes demands....
Lets see just how out of touch Assange is -
Enraged that he had lost control, Assange unleashed his threat, arguing that he owned the information and had a financial interest in how and when
it was released.
Now wait a minute.. Assange claims the information belongs to him and that he had a financial interest in them. The very position the US government
used, that the documents belonged to them and Assange cannot publish them. A point Assange ignored because he has some higher moral authority and the
laws dont apply to him.
