    Assange has done nothing wrong. The very fact that he’s facing extradition, is a crime unto itself. No man should have to endure what Julian Assange has been through. If anything, the man is a hero, for exposing the heinous actions committed by the American military, guided by the U.S. govt., in Iraq; and for exposing other hidden atrocities. In a truly just world, the man would be praised and honored; not degraded, humiliated, and treated like some sort of caged animal. The U.S. government is way overstepping it’s bounds on this one, and anyone that can not see that, needs to look at it through an entirely different lens, perhaps – a lens that filters out untruths, deception, and propaganda, preferably. At stake is the basic fundamental core of journalistic integrity, and what it is that keeps the governmental powers-that-be “in check”, so that they do not become too overly powerful. If this case fails, and Assange indeed gets extradited and thus sentenced here in the U.S., so fails all hope for any future endeavors involving putting any sort of restriction or limitations on governmental power and/or corruption; and ultimately, this failure will cost us our basic rights. Whistle-blowing is not a crime, it’s a “service” of the utmost importance in any “real” democracy. What’s it going to take for us all to truly grasp that concept? Both Eric Snowden and Julian Assange should be totally free men today… not imprisoned or on-the-run. Unless these things get corrected, (Now!), we can say goodbye to justice, to democracy, and to our ‘Constitution & Bill of Rights’, here in the U.S. forever. It’s just that critical; and also, that blatantly obvious. It’s time to wake up.

    Every little bit helps. Stickers on windows to absorb vibration …..
    This testimony must settle it for Julian’s rights to privilege … to confidentiality .. inviolate.
    But, I am forgetting.
    This is deepsnake. The law does not apply to the swamp creatures. only to us. The cattle.

    Consortium News is the only place I can find decent reporting on this trial. I don’t expect anything from the NYT, but Democracy Now has been useless as well.
