After 7 Years of Deceptions About Assange, the US Readies for Its First Media Rendition
Jonathan Cook | counterpunch.org | 2019-04-12
For seven years, from the moment Julian Assange first sought refuge in the Ecuadorean embassy in London, they have been telling us we were wrong, that we were paranoid conspiracy theorists. We were told there was no real threat of Assange's extradition to the United States, that it was all in our fevered imaginations. For…

Roaming Charges: Tongue-Tied and Twisted
Jeffrey St. Clair | counterpunch.org | 2019-04-12
The main difference between the anonymous leaks from US intelligence officials about RussiaGate peddled nightly on MSDNC, CNN, the NYT and the Washington Post and Julian Assange's exposure of US war crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan is that what Wikileaks published turned out to be true. In this system, you're only held accountable for exposing the truth about imperial power.

Caitlin Johnstone | indybay.org | 2019-04-12
Extradited for journalism. In a blur, everything that Assange and WikiLeaks have been warning about for years has been proven correct, contrary to mountains of claims to the contrary by establishment loyalists everywhere. The same government which tortured Chelsea Manning is in the process of extraditing her publisher so that they can silence him forever.

The Martyrdom of Julian Assange
Chris Hedges | truthdig.com | 2019-04-11
The arrest Thursday of Julian Assange eviscerates all pretense of the rule of law and the rights of a free press. The illegalities, embraced by the Ecuadorian, British and U.S. governments, in the seizure of Assange are ominous. They presage a world where the internal workings, abuses, corruption, lies and crimes, especially war crimes, carried out by corporate states and the global ruling elite will be masked from the public. They presage a world where those with the courage and integrity to expose the misuse of power will be hunted down, tortured, subjected to sham trials and given lifetime prison terms in soli…
