Whatever you think of Julian Assange, his address to the UN via video link is thought-provoking and revealing. There's no doubt in my mind that the US wants him locked up not through any desire to impart justice, but just to take him off the world stage, effectively silencing him, as Bradley Manning has been silenced (note that Assange's mention of the imprisoned American soldier is the only one in recent months). The US has no problem breaking, bending, re-interpreting or even ignoring the rule of law whenever it likes, either at home OR overseas. The only reason Assange is still alive is that any hit on him would unavoidably be tied to the US, and therefore Obama personally.Assange Talks Turkey. And Armenia, Ecuador, Sierra Leone, etc...
