Julian Assange: Hero on the Run

Perhaps the best piece of journalism I've seen in a long while re Wikileaks and Assange. Not Murdoch I'll bet.

Ed.:Read on for The Hero Becomes the Hunted, Who Is the Real Criminal, and Popular Disbelief.

“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.” - Mark Twain

Great Find thank you

I loved this part

"And what do America’s leaders regard as the “right thing” in this case? Obviously, keeping silent about Washington’s doing the wrong thing."

Thank you for posting this about Assange...!

This is what the Liberty movement is about. If you haven't already done so, please go to this site and sign the petition to the Ecuadorean president to grant Assange asylum. I was proud to sign.

Truth is Treason in the Empire of Lies.

Bradley Manning too is another political prisoner who is being persecuted for exposing war crimes. He also needs our support.

Bradley Manning, = missing.

thanks for the link to opinion-maker, very informative.
the article covers a lot about govt-s wrong-doings exposed by the heroic people at WikiLeaks, Julian Assange & co-workers. a line or a few words about the courageous Bradley Manning would have enhanced the quality of this article. It was Bradley who provided the most damaging punch that hurt The-PTB, - the article mentions =
" - damaging information on procedures at the Guantanamo Bay prison camp and a video documenting attacks on civilians in Iraq."

I will copy-paste a couple of sentences from the conclusion, =
"many of us can not recognize when we are being lied to or misled. And, if someone tries to tell us what is happening, they sound so odd, so out of place, that we are made anxious and annoyed."

I think this is the reason for Cognitive-Dissonance. For a better understanding of its meaning refer to Wikipedia.
