Wikileaks founder Julian Assange said this morning in an exclusive interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos on “This Week” that there is no stopping the release of additional NSA secrets obtained by Edward Snowden, a former contract employee of the organization.

“There is no stopping the publishing process at this stage. Great care has been taken to make sure that Mr. Snowden can’t be pressured by any state to stop the publication process. I mean, the United States, by canceling his passport, has left him for the moment marooned in Russia. Is that really a great outcome by the State Department? Is that really what it wanted to do?” Assange said, speaking from the Ecuadorian embassy in London.

stephanopolous is such a piece of garbage

I would so love to be face to face with that goon and give him a piece of my mind. I want to stare him in the eyes and just rip him apart verbally.

Assange, keep doing what you are doing homey.

He Sounds Sick

Can't they get him medical attention?

Thank you!

Great and marvelous interview.

Thank you for posting.

I was surprised ABC had that female guest in studio because she would not tolerate any of the lies and propaganda George was trying to force on her and the audience. She abruptly corrected him and of course we didn't see George go back to her.

I praise her courage for holding the line!

2nd to last observation: Really? The ENTIRE interview was spent on attacking the messenger with not one minuscule particle of effort expended on looking at the true criminals in government.

Last point: Wow! Snowden would have a 99.7% chance of an indictment, and 99% chance of conviction if tried in the court 6 kilometers from Washington DC. I mean, of course, that would be the case. The criminals have totally taken over.

Indeed Snowden is a hero! May God bless and protect him.

How dare you question the regime!?

Stephanopoulos is dripping with contempt. How dare they insult the system that has made him filthy rich?

Awesome interview!



Great stuff!

Edward Snowden was upholding

Edward Snowden was upholding the supreme law of the land and not hiding behind the breaking of that law by saying, "I was just following orders to keep illegal secrets".

Assange and Radack

spoke excellently. George Stephanopoulos interjecting while they were making clear points just makes him like a tool.

Remember, Stephanopoulos is

Remember, Stephanopoulos is the same shill for the establishment that sneered at the idea of Paul winning the presidency:


oh, I remember

Part of my desire for Dr. Paul to win was rooted in that day.

never heard of Jesselyn Radack before

She spoke really well. Learning about her made it possible for me to suffer through Snippylittlepuss's comments.

She did an interview on

democracy now with three former leakers. That's where I first came across her. It's worth finding and watching. I think she was their lawyer. Also, It's hard to measure with the bar for journalism being so low lately, but I'm pretty sure George Stephanopoulos is the worst.

More smoke to distract from the fact that

the CIA controls the NSA.
This Guardian article states that the CIA obtains information "on request". Really?
Also worth checking out is this interesting fact sheet about the former CEO of Salon.com., the station directing the "news" of Snowden.
Who owns Salon now? who is the CEO? what is their work history?

Good Info Jill

Thanks for the links

aching to hear Assange say...

If the US government really sees Snowden as a national security threat, they would grant him immunity to lure him home, away from our "enemies".

That fact that the US government does not do this either indirectly implies that the US does not consider him a threat or that the public relations charade of demonizing him as an example to us all, is of higher value than say... protecting us from terrorists.

You cannot save your ass and your face at the same time.

US history is largely one of a nation most often opting to save face.

US security policy has clearly shifted from protecting people and their rights, to protecting its apparent status as a hegemonic entity of the baddest mofos on the planet.

Watching John Kerry's comment

seems to be proof in point that he indeed took shrapnel in his arse, which happens to be the storage facility for his brain...
