  1. Due process violations? The persecution and arrest of Assange are violations of anything decent. Due process violations are minor details compared to the fact that Assange is being silenced because he exposed the crimes and other nefarious deeds of empires.

    1. Not empires, empire – OURS!
      ASSANGE EXPOSED OUR PRESIDENTS AS WAR CRIMINALS. Therefore he, like Chelsea Manning must be destroyed.

      1. @Raymond Salman
        I stand corrected in that Assange is being persecuted/prosecuted by the U.S. because of exposing crimes of U.S. empire. But he has also exposed crimes of other empires, which is what all good journalists do (they don’t pick sides, they just expose the truth regardless of who it helps or hurts).

      2. but we all knew – they made up their minds to wage illegal war and did it.
        There were protests around the world…
        – but the bullies must bully

  2. Not Empires, empire – ours!
    ASSANGE EXPOSED OUR PRESIDENTS AS WAR CRIMINALS. Therefore he, like Chelsea Manning must be destroyed and silenced to suppress the press.

  3. Gonna need another 9/11 Booster pretty soon…
    It’s in trials (rehearsal, costuming, planned exercises, insurance frauds)
