WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has strained his relationship with the Ecuadorean government by helping NSA leaker Edward Snowden.
Ecuador's President Rafael Correa is furious about the collaboration between one of the country's diplomats and Mr Assange, British newspaper The Independent reports.
The pair organised a safe passage letter for NSA employee turned whistle blower, Mr Snowden.
President Correa said the government wasn't consulted about the letter.
Ecuador's President Rafael Correa was furious with his own diplomat Fidel Narvaez, who - in conjunction with Mr Assange - organised the handing of a safe passage letter to Mr Snowden. He called the move, which was apparently made without consulting the central government, a "serious error", for which the consul was likely to be punished. And WikiLeaks' involvement in the debacle also angered Quito.
"There is a fog of war due to the rapid nature of events. If similar events arise you can be assured that they do not originate in any lack of respect or concern for Ecuador or its government."

Are they really just Mad that Assange posted the letter on WikiLeaks?
You know how it is with children. If you don't let them do something themselves then they get all bent out of shape.
But as was mentioned before it is really not the fault of Assange, he was just a party to it.
