Assange: Reelected Obama a 'wolf in sheep's clothing'

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.”

More Like a Wolf in Wolves

More Like a Wolf in Wolves Clothing. And it is only the sheep of this country who could mistake a Wolf for a sheep.

It was no mistake. Those who

It was no mistake. Those who voted for Obama knew what they were doing and why.If you don't believe me, just compare the 2008 and the 2012 exit polls. Just like a good Shepard know his sheep, Obama knew his.

The wolf in sheeps clothing

The wolf in sheeps clothing is on the shield of the Fabian socialists, so it is a good comparison.

I question Assange

Remember the "Leaked diplomatic cables"? Hundreds of thousands of cables supposedly leaked, the gov was in a tizzy about it- and what was the worst thing to come out of them? Some fluff about how "Hillary doesn't respect some countries leaders" or some crap like that. I mean c'mon, for how corrupt our government is you'd think there would have been SOMETHING more meaty, but no. Idk, i hope i am wrong about him- but these days i almost don't trust anything. Our CIA is all powerful.

That there was no fallout is a common media myth

The arab spring probably would not have occurred if not for wikileaks. Don't believe me? Believe the ex-MI6 honcho who said the exact same thing (though the video's been taken off youtube). There's a treasure trove of information if you're willing to look. I've found plenty of damning content on Israel's treatment of Palestinians (forcing food trucks to pay tolls to pass into Gaza).
Or how about the story of hired (contractor) thugs holding parties where they do drugs and prostitute afghani children? That's not a big deal, but this Patraeus scandal bullshit is?

The truth is, the good content that lies therein, be it from cable leaks or stratfor emails, you'll never hear about from MSM because MSM has been utterly humiliated by wikileaks. Wikileaks' existence reinforces the reality that our media do not do their job at all, and that investigative journalism is dead in those circles.

Assange has to go with what

Assange has to go with what he's given. More meaty stuff on Wikileaks included telling the truth about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. You're not likely to find very much in the equivalent of diplomatic tweets.


His Points About O-bomber Is Already Common Knowledge here. Please leak new information, Assange!

Educate the masses, and win in the end.

It's hard to do when the previous whistleblower

is still on the proverbial cross for every potential future whistleblower to see.

Remember when Obama said he wouldn't go after whistleblowers?

Pepperidge Farm remembers.

Remember when the liberal media first celebrated this man

for doing their jobs so much better than they ever could? They seem to hate the guy now.

I just can't seem to figure out why...
