Wikileaks Still Holding Powerful to Account as Founder Julian Assange “Slowly Dies” in Prison

Assange’s treatment serves as an example to anyone who plans to challenge power and constitutes a continuation of President Obama’s war on whistleblowers. Chelsea Manning, who leaked the infamous Collateral Murder video, which showed U.S. military personnel massacring civilians, including Reuters journalists, in cold blood, has been re-incarcerated and faces a debt of nearly $500,000 for refusing to testify against the Wikileaks founder. Meanwhile, Edward Snowden remains exiled in Russia, claiming he would “likely die in prison for telling the truth” if he ever returned to the United States.

  1. Quote: “claiming he would “likely die in prison for telling the truth” if he ever returned to the United States.” There is no doubt of that… but only until the oligarchs in power change the law and bring back capital punishment for whistleblowers… for a start…

    • Yes, but this is much more insidious; they want “the people” to become conscious of this process and to grow in agreement with it, just as Hitler did with the German people. “The people” are being programmed to not only accept but demand that “enemies of the state” be made examples of. Propaganda and brainwashing with the use of scapegoats… more and more scapegoats until those cheering today become the state’s victims of tomorrow. Nothing new in that and “the people” always, invariably, buy into it, hook, line and sinker.
