Julian Assange: Is President Obama wearing pants? By: Tal Kopan March 7, 2014 05:40 PM EST

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange Friday questioned whether President Barack Obama is in control of the nation’s intelligence operation, saying based on the response to the leaks from Edward Snowden, it doesn’t look that way.

“There is a real question about who is wearing the pants,” Assange said on MSNBC’s “Now With Alex Wagner” when asked about reforms to the National Security Agency announced by Obama in response to revelations brought forward by Snowden.

Speaking via satellite presumably from the Ecuadorian Embassy in London where he has been staying in asylum from an extradition order for more than year, Assange said the government has not addressed the concerns raised by Snowden.

“It has been six months now since the Edward Snowden revelations started to occur,” Assange said. “In that time, have we seen the commencement of a criminal investigation against [Director of National Intelligence James] Clapper for lying to Congress, or anyone in the National Security Agency for violating the law, the U.S. Constitution? No. Have we seen the firing of a single person associated with those breaches of the rights of American citizens and arguably others as well? The answer is no.”

Assange said the lack of response raises questions about who is in control.

“So who really calls the shots in the executive? Is it Barack Obama?

In my green metal suit I’m preparing to shoot up Ukrainie
And the ring at the end of my nose makes me look rather pretty
it’s a pity there’s nobody here to witness the end
Save for my dear old friend and confidante - Madamoiselle Reggie

People have posted photoshopped images of Obama and given some drive by posts but the article touches on a very serious matter.

The president of the United States has basically abdicated any responsibility in foreign affairs. The guarantor of the "Pax Americana" that has existed for almost 70 years has rescinded its guarantee. This is not a good thing.

We should call Obama, ‘The Pink Panties President’.

One: because he’s a marxist, communist-in-training
Two: because his favorite color in the Rainbow is Pink
Three: His favorite singer is “Pink” (Not)
Four: his panties are Pink. It’s Rahm Emanuel’s tutu that is Pink.
Five: His face is Pink due to his total incompetence in dealing with Putin’s invasion of the Crimea/Ukraine
Six: Joe Biden said that “PINK” is a five letter word.
Seven: Obama’s favorite support group is “Code Pink”.

I’m declaring a CODE RED on his ass!

I wonder if he ever ate a “Reggie Bar”? It was chocolate and had nuts in it.

[For those less enlightened, I’m referring to a Reggie Jackson candy bar. Oh, you though that I was referring to ...... Gotcha!]

Instead of “The Pink Panther” he is the “Pink Poseur”.

“There is a real question about who is wearing the pants,” Assange said on MSNBC’s “Now With Alex Wagner”

I think it’s safe to say that Rita Repulsa look-alike Valerie Jarrett is wearing the pants. Sissy-boy is wearing Mom jeans.

Many, many in this administration should be arrested for their crimes against Freedom & the Constitution...then waterboarded so (for once) to get the truth about many things.

LOL! Alex Wagner and the lefty-lib MSNBC audience would consider the male chauvinist query “Who is wearing the pants?” to be a vile sexist slur!

IOW, none of what has happened has been Obama’s fault. It’s almost as if the leakers (traitors) and Obama are on the same side...

Meme-building ping.

The crazy ironic part of Julian Assange’s comment is that he is currently hiding out in the Ecuador Embassy in London because two Swedish women have accused HIM of not wearing HIS pants.

Pretty sorry state of affairs when a Julian Assange has the moral/ethical/manliness high grounds to be able to mock “the most powerful man on the planet”.

Is President Obama wearing pants?

I dunno. Do mom jeans qualify as pants, in the strict manly sense of the word?

Silly Assange! Of course not - we live in a tyranny. Tyrannies don't prosecute crimes by their enforcers or bureaucrats.

OK. In a fistfight between Assange and MomJeans, who would win.

I think we all know the answer to that...

Tyrannies don't arrest their governmental criminals*.

*See Stalin's Russia, Hitler's Germany, Mao's China, etc., etc.
