According to Noam Chomsky, the abhorrent treatment of Julian Assange is the fault of many governments, including ours.
The official line is that Chelsea Manning is back in jail over making false statements in her court-martial. The real reason is as grim as it is obvious.
The defense of Julian Assange has largely been left to the individual. Noticeably, no media outlets have stood beside him. Their silence speaks volumes.
With the Ecuadorian President threatening to revoke Julian Assange’s political asylum if he continues to be Julian Assange, the future is desperately bleak.
The WikiLeaks presser was fizzer. Julian Assange eventually appeared, asked for employees, then left. Some people were best not pleased.
