Obama May Need to Resign and Other WikiLeaks Weekend Updates

Assange Says Obama 'Must Resign'

Forget Hillary. Assange is now going after the man on top.

In an interview on Sunday, the WikiLeaks founder said U.S. President Barack Obama should resign if it can be shown that he approved spying by the country's diplomatic figures on UN officials.

"The order is so serious it may well have been put to the President for approval," Assange told Spanish daily El Pais in an online chat published online. "Obama must answer what he knew about this illegal order and when.” (via AFP)

Any rumors that Wikileaks is holding Obama’s citizenship records in its toxic tarball?

The idea that diplomats shouldn’t be spying is just silly.

Obama needs to resign, but not for that.

haha! I have been saying this as well. That fact alone leaves me on the fence about the Wikileaks stuff.

I am betting that Mr. Assange will find himself in a one-car accident a la Vince Foster.

Paging the Clintons...

Exactly. He should resign if he ordered the State Department not to spy.

I say release it all. He claims he has aerial footage of US troops killing civilians in Afghanistan. Show it. So what. About time our gloves came off. I think Americans are sick of fighting the war with one hand tied behind our backs.

Got BP files. Great. Let loose. What I think this guy fails to realize is that most Americans are sick and tired of the US caring so much what others think.

Release it all, Mr. Wikileaks. You want to play that game, go ahead. Gloves off, you lose. Let's get the cards on the table and start acting like a super power again.

He will not resign, he will not be impeached. This is a wasted story. Nobody even understands the story. The problem is that when they first began discussing the story, they made it seem like a soap opera with this person not liking this person so the classified stuff was not reported properly. So now when people say, “Hey this was serious.” The American people just shrug. TRUST ME....THIS WILL GO NOWHERE. Even Hillary will not get dirty from this.

If you remember during 9/11, when the first poor souls jumped to their deaths off the WTC, the networks stopped showing the footage because they felt it was too “graphic” and “disturbing?”

The WORST thing that could happen to the GOP and conservatives would be for Obama to resign.

He’s the BEST possible target.

If he HAS to go, let him be beaten in a primary - that will lose the Rats the Black vote.

Why would the Clinton’s take him out? What do you think the term “UFO” really meant? Flying saucers — or documents from an Unidentified Foreign Office?

Why else isn’t Obama going after JA? Why did he fly to Afghanistan and wrap himself in American miltiary cammo?

If you put the rest of the puzzle together eventually you can cut the exact shape of the missing piece.

"In an interview on Sunday, the WikiLeaks founder said U.S. President Barack Obama should resign if it can be shown that he approved spying by the country's diplomatic figures on UN officials." -------------------------------------------------------- That is not an attack. It is just a red herring diversion from the real targets of BO's WikiLeaks. Assange knows that BO did not order spying on his Terrorist Pals at the UN. The only spying that BO has ordered in on the US Military and Ambassadors and our Allies. The only documents damaging to the US Military and Ambassadors have been leaked by BO through WikiLeaks. Demand that your Congressman, Senators, County DA, Sheriff, State Legislators, Governor, Attorney General etc. take legal action to remove BO before he completely destroys our Country. http://thesteadydrip.blogspot.com/2010/07/taking-aka-obama-directly-before-scotus.html

Excellent assessment.... of Assange trying to set the terms and conditions for a impeachment.... and shape world public opinion on the world stage (while he has it).

He is attempting to redirect the heat from his co conspirator.

Maybe this guy isn’t quite as bad as we thought.

That being said - he still published sensitive information that should never have been released. Information that puts US service men and women in real danger. For that, he deserves the gallows.

By the way - instructions to diplomatic personnel to spy on other diplomats would, by necessity, come from the “top” - that would be The One.

Spying on UN officials should be a given.

Ejecting the UN from our shores and removing ourselves from it should earn a standing ovation.

Exactly - gloves off. People forget the ugly truth about how the US and allies won WWII - it wasn’t by playing Mr. Nice Guy. Think about it - firebombing German cities (with the intent of killing civilians), Two nukes on Japan (again - nearly all casualties were civilians). But we WON because we were willing to do whatever it takes.

The US lost that fighting spirit between WWII and Korea. Name ONE war we have decisively wont sine WWII - just One. Korea? Stalemate. Vietnam? WE got kicked out - mostly by the Press and limp-wristed politicians. Panama? What the heck was that? Desert Storm? We stopped short - thus requiring “Iraqi Freedom”... Afghanistan? By any measure - not really a victory - and as soon as we leave, guess who will come right back...

Weapons don’t make a superpower - will to use them does.

No, this guy is worse than anyone thought. I get the jokes, but here’s a guy trying to dictate terms to the United States of America. He’s not even an American and he’s trying to blackmail the President of the United States. That’s F’ing offensive.

And no, I don’t play the “he’s not my President” game. I leave that to the ignorant Bush haters.

Wouldn’t that make a Merry Christmas?

I suspect, however, that he wouldn’t be calling for Obama to resign if he had evidence on him.

Those birthers who follow Lucas Smith and believe his Kenyan BC is real ((I don’t) should tell Smith to send it to Assange.

I'd say he should resign if he didn't order spying on those corrupt bastards at the UN. Hell, most of them are either two bit cleptocrats looking for all they can steal or espionage agents working under diplomatic cover.

The UN long ago ceased to be of any potential worth. It's time we got out and told them to go away and play their game somewhere else.

Saudi Arabia on the Women's Rights Commission????? It's beyond a joke.
