Assange: Reelected Obama a 'wolf in sheep's clothing'Submitted by fonzdrew on Sat, 11/10/2012 - 17:16
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange sees no reason to celebrate the reelection of US President Barack Obama. The US aggressively pursued and “persecuted” the whistleblower site under a Democratic administration, he explained.
“Obama seems to be a nice man, and that is precisely the problem,” the 41-year-old told AFP, speaking from his room in London’s Ecuadorian embassy.
“It's better to have a sheep in wolf's clothing than a wolf in sheep's clothing,” he said. “All of the activities against WikiLeaks by the United States have occurred under an Obama administration.”
Assange was equally critical of the Republican, saying it “has not been an effective restraining force on government excesses over the last four years.”
