Assange Says WikiLeaks Team Aiding Snowden on Iceland.

Julian Assange, founder and publisher of WikiLeaks, said his legal advisers have talked with lawyers for Edward Snowden to help arrange asylum in Iceland for the American contractor who leaked information on U.S. electronic surveillance methods to newspapers.

“We have been in touch with Mr. Snowden’s legal team,” Assange said on a telephone conference call with reporters today. “Our people in Iceland have been in contact with his legal team and the Icelandic government” and are “in the process of brokering his asylum in Iceland.”

Whistle Blowers are a becoming thing.

“Uncontrolled search and seizure is one of the first and most effective weapons in the arsenal of every arbitrary government. Among deprivations of rights, none is so effective in cowing a population, crushing the spirit of the individual and putting terror in every heart”. — Justice Robert H. Jackson

Whistle blowers will soon be coming out of the walls!!!

The first question...

that came to my mind...
If it's 'safe' in Iceland for asylum...
why isn't Assange there?

If it's NOT safe for Assange..
Why is he 'brokering' for Snowden to GO there?

I'm NOT suggesting ANY conspiracy... please (spare me the CIA/Zionist double agent stuff :) )

I'm just asking a simple question looking for a logical answer?

Well I can't answer that...

But my first question to you is why would you trust Wikileaks in the first place?

The more Snowden associates himself with Wikileaks the more skeptical I become of his entire story. Of course Wikileak lawyers also miraculously got contacted by Hastings about his being investigated by the FBI a few hours before a car crash in LA. How interesting is it that Wikileaks is so involved in all these high profile stories. I don't believe it for a sec. It's also one of the main reason I have a totally different view of the Michael Hastings saga and wrote about in the following post: Who is Michael Hastings?

I believe that if he steps foot out of the embassy door,

he loses his asylum and will be arrested.

It would be neat...

If would be neat if Assange creates a safe infrastructure for protecting whistle-blowers and leakers and such. More would come out if there was a clear path to safety.

If I were him, I'd want a Chinese military jet escort all the way just to make sure the plane isn't shot out of the sky on the way to Iceland.
