WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange calls on Obama to end 'witch hunt'
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange urged President Barack Obama to end a so-called "witch hunt" against his secret-spilling website, appearing in public Sunday for the first time since he took refuge two months ago inside Ecuador's Embassy in London to avoid extradition to Sweden on sex crimes allegations.

...so spilling military and intelligence secrets is okay in Assange’s world?
You notice that Wikileaks never discusses Assange’s personal details....
In the case of Wikileaks, I think First Amendment also applies. The guy who should be punished is that twerp Manning, to violated his oath of office by giving the messages to Asange. He should be executed.
Both POSs should be killed by drone strikes.
Rapist Assange is a cowardly little douchebag. I hope the Brits storm the embassy and haul his sniveling ass out so he can stand trial in Sweden. Posing as a warrior for free speech is a smokescreen.
Extradition for rape is the real issue and is between Sweden and the UK. Assange’s paranoia over America’s “secret courts” is his own delusion.
Ur right. Same thing for insider trading.
Pretending that Obama and Assange are not in league together is the definition of naivete.
I think the Swedes would be surprised to hear that they are US lackeys.
I am rather surprised that Assange (wherever he is) hasn’t started a personal Cu-coated Pb “collection” by now...
