He always said the Swedes could interview him in the embassy, as he thought the charge was trumped up to extradite him to America.

He did not hack into America for info he was given it . Beware reporters as whatever misdemeanours you report, you could be hounded.

Leakers and whistleblowers will always be shown and broadcast as treasonous devious back stabbers against any country they blow the whistle on, I say good on them for an increased public education of what really goes on behind the closed doors.
Just once in history I would like to see a whistleblower given the respect and accolades he/she deserves rather than having to fight total destruction by the people they informed on.....wave
Bentlee I'm afraid you are correct blues sad world teddybear
M4 yes so would I. We all remember Kelly the scientist who blew the whistle on sexed up dossier. Which happened to be true. I felt so sorry for his family.

This time it is us the Brits, the Americans, and Ecuador who are strange bedfellows. Everyone shouts about human rights dunno none for people who were massacred, and non for jailed soldier who sent Wikileaks the info, and Swedes too let's not forget them very mad they could have interviewed Julian in the embassy. Now my own country kept him in a prison, no outside fresh air, and later years no internet, and less visiting g rights, the fellow must be stir crazy by now. What human rights has he had ::dunno:

I am so ashamed of my own country on so many levels at this moment in time.blues
Now Corbyn is getting into the debate confused hope he means it not just gaining brownie points.

The rest of the world looks on, I have to look to RT news as ours does not show much blues
It's due to US pressure, no doubt. The last thing the US government wants is a safe haven for truth tellers!
Bd totally agree it's disgusting, very mad
Oh now they put out videos of what the bloke got up to in 7 years in a room. What was the experiment, how long for a man to go crazy. doh sick all of it, oh what was that he put lives at risk wow tosh the deeds of American soldiers massacre was done.

If America didn't go around the world telling everyone that they act against human rights etc, they may have a point. Shambles, trumped up charges of rape, hacking etc all to stay friendly with a country doh
Sick world we live in.frustrated
Corbyn has always been an admirer of Assange's - they have many sympathies in common.

Not usually at odds with you but this time - nope. There's nothing noble here. He's a narcissist with a troubled childhood, an insatiable appetite for the spotlight, and an arrogance which has made him think himself above criticism, above the need to be responsible, and free to say or do anything he pleases.

Whistle-blowers are essential, otherwise our governments get way too complacent, and yes I've laughed or gasped at some of probably-true stunts Wikileaks has pulled in the past, just as I was supposed to. BUT - whistle-blowers must be prepared, at some point along the line, to pay the piper and must blow their whistles with that in mind. He's been a hacker and a Russian tool and a bit of an all-round politics-manipulating grandstander and now, to his disbelief, he is actually going to have to defend himself. Boohoo.

I have no problem with those who poke the establishment when they need it, I've been a Private Eye fan for years, and part of my cynicism is because Assange had a run-in with Ian Hislop some years ago and then accused him of trying to smear him as an anti-semite. Hislop isn't faultless, absolutely, but he takes the flak for what he says, and doesn't snipe from cover, so I have eyed Assange askance ever since. He stands for everything that is manipulative, biased, and sensation-driven about our current media. Call him a hero, and any hope of the media becoming responsible again and reporting actual, you know, FACTS, accurately and in full in our lifetimes is gone.

Devil's advocate here devil and I know when I say JMO I will doubtless be the only one with this particular opinion. dunno
Well Biff wether ASSANGE is narcissistic or not is irrelevant! We are all flawed with something grin

Wikileaks is more than ASSANGE himself, but he does play a big role in uncovering what all governments and prominent people try to con us with.

Wikileaks is not affiliated to any one country, and I believe in this world we do need such as whistleblowers etc, but they have to keep on the move scold grin no no that's not why I move laugh

The video cannot be disputed!! It s a fact as to what happened, governments should not go around the world telling folk their human rights stink, when there own stinks.

Now countries scratch each other's back confused leaves me wondering about Sweden And America.

Now as to some ladies who shout rape to morning sex wow sure makes it harder for ladies who HAVE been raped to even try to bring rapists to justice.

Old time mental wards give more freedoms to patients than Julian has had, he is bound to need help in the future, I am sure my own country could have found a way around this debacle sooner, OH its scratching Americas back.
Wow now I'm worried, this tablet as directed me to a video on u-tube about Julian ASSANGE doh are they watching all my moves uh oh to what I get hot under the collar about. confused don't like it.
To be fair to the embassy for letting the cops in, he doesn't seem to have been the easiest guest. Smelly room, feces on walls, loud music, hacking your host's phone and leaking photos of him, is not guest behaviour I would encourage here ... this is funny, though. Stephen Colbert's "Assange is not a good roommate" -

Biff I for one do not necessarily believe everything I see, read etc.

Anyway as I said 7 years wow without your freedom, and America over your head, enough to drive anyone crazy, sticking 2 fingers at the so called democratic country for their non help.teddybear

I cant bare 6 months grin in the same place never mind 7 years teddybear
Bentlee good video, let's hope the secret part of America doesn't get hold of him and a secret suicide happens (professor Kelly) whistleblower. blues sad flower
