Not that I agree with ANYTHING the mass media tells us, particularly about "The War On Terror", I'm inclined to give a lot of credence to Julian Assange.
It now seems that since Assange has done what any good journalist does: He printed statements, and backed them up with facts, and proof of those facts, he's now the most wanted man in the world. Kind of odd, don't you think? Remember Osama Bin Laden? Public Enemy Number 1. I didn't know they caught him, (not like they were ever really looking for him anyway).
Right now, you can't turn on a News Channel, Radio Broadcast, or pick up a Newspaper anywhere in the United States, without seeing something about Julian Assange. Why? Because he pointed out with FACTS what douche bags you are? Or, is it, (and I believe it is), that he's a patsy to divert the attention away from your failing Bail-Out money? The fact that despite all the money being thrown around across the planet, we're still going deeper and deeper into debt?
Have you noticed that? So much in the news about Julian Assange, and WikiLeaks, (I just noticed the site has been taken down), but nothing, or at least very little about the economy. Why do you suppose that is? Is it because THEY don't want us to notice what's really going on? Is it all part of a massive brainwashing campaign? Designed to manipulate us into believing whatever we're told by our elected officials, and news broadcasters? Well, so far so good.
Am I to consider from your post that you are of the opinion that Asange is being used as a PATSY by the US government as a distraction from our current economic crisis?
If so, this would imply that he is being controlled.
So, your point would be that Asange is being used as a PATSY to distract the US citizen's from the current economic crisis and that, as a part of this process, he is now being sought after as the number one most wanted man in the world for sexual harrassment charges and he could, quite possibly, face imprisonment and, all of this was orchestrated by the PTB in order to distract the people from the current economic crisis facing the US.
Sorry, but I don't think there is much that can distract the US citizen's from our current economic crisis of which OBAMA is doing nothing.
So, if the government of the US or any other corrupt entity used Asange as a PATSY for purposes of distraction, they failed.
