For me Julian assange, the Wikileaks founder, is the of the year.
Any scribe, anywhere pains to disagree. The embattled US
administration, for obvious reasons, is furious with the Australian
journalist. Wikileaks has initiated an extra ordinary campaign of
vilification and persecution, on which is totally compatible with
the treatment meted out of the dissidents in china or Myanmar.
Barack Obama’s attorney general Eric holder is now shouting from
the roof top about the stapes he has already taken to bring down
Wikileaks and criminalise the lay king of embarrassing
information. Sinator Dianne, a self-proclaimed liberal,-in Rupert
Murdoch’s wall street journal- called for assange to be put behind
the bars for a mere 2500000 years! Hold your breath. She wrote,
“When Wikileaks founder Julian Assange released his latest
document trove- more than 25000 secrete street department cables
– he internationally harmed the USA govt. The release of these
documents damages our national interests and puts innocent lives
at risk. He should be vigorously prosecuted for the espionage. “The
law Mr. Assange continues to violate is the espionage act a city at
1917. This law makes it a felony for a unothorised person to
process or transmit information relating to national defence, which
the processor has reason to believe, could be used to the injury of
United Stats or to the advantage of any foreign nation. Importantly,
the courts have held that information relating to national defence
‘Applies to both classified and unclassified material. Each
violation is punishable by up to ten years in prison’.
