“He is so paranoid and afraid of the USA that one wonders what he knows that nobody else does. Right now, his only fear is that the USA will get him and that will be the end of him and his quest to vanadlize international relations” – Anonymous
It seems that WikiLeaks have a few leaks of their own and the talk within the organization is that WikiLeaks founder is scared to death of the United States. He fears that the US will soon indict him or abscond him from the UK and that he will never again see the light of day.
In an attempt to curry favor with the USA, Assange has hired an American law firm to represent him, but now it seems that most law firms fear the long arm of the law as it applies to espionage against the USA, and aiding those who do it, and in this case the law firm who aids him might spend the rest of time battling the US State Department — a move that would bankrupt any law firm.
“He is scared to death of the United States,” said a source close to Assange. “His animosity towrads US policy has now turned to extreme fear and he even tried to get a friend to bring an ultra-light aircraft to the mansion in England where is he under house arrest. He has even consulted magazines and TV shows in an attempt to adopt a more American look lest he end up in the USA looking like a foreigner. He is a real coward despite the fact that a lot of people claim otherwise and see him as a conquering hero — he is anything but.”
“He always assumed that the left wing power and influence of the Obama administration would protect him, but he was wrong. He also assumed that the Europeans would protect him but he was wrong about that too. He had very childish and naive ideas about how the governments of the USA and Europe work, and while there are petty squabbles between the USA and western Europe, Assange was stupid and unaware that in the end, blood is thicker than water and that almost all of Europe would turn on him. He’s smart in one way but very very naive and stupid in the ways of politics and the world.”
Assange is snowbound Ellingham Hall, a supporter’s 10-bedroom country mansion where he is confined on bail as he fights Sweden’s attempt to extradite him on allegations of rape and molestation. Assange insisted to television interviewers that he was being subjected to a smear campaign and “what appears to be a secret grand jury investigation against me or our organization.”
He did not elaborate, but said he had retained an unnamed U.S. law firm to represent him.
Assange has repeatedly voiced concerns that American authorities were getting ready to press charges over WikiLeaks’ continuing release of some 250,000 secret State Department cables, which have angered and embarrassed U.S. officials worldwide.
U.S. officials are investigating WikiLeaks and considering charges, a case that if pursued could end up pitting the government’s efforts to protect sensitive information against press and speech freedoms guaranteed by First Amendment free speech right. The government suspects WikiLeaks received the documents from an Army private, Bradley Manning, who is in the brig on charges of leaking other classified documents to the organization.
The stand-offishness of President Obama on this issue speaks volumes. TheDamienZone.com thinks that Assange’s days as a crazed freedom fighter might be numbered.
