If you wish to speak the truth, then leave America. On American soil, the truth will not set you free; it can kill you.
Julian Assange knows this. In 2010, his organization WikiLeaks released hundreds of thousands of confidential documents; they pulled back the curtain on the lies and atrocities that constituted the wars in Iraq and in Afghanistan
For aiding and abetting the truth, Assange confronted extradition to Sweden on flimsy charges, from where he would have been extradited to America and charged with treason despite being Australian. He sought sanctuary in Ecuador’s embassy in London. On the one-year anniversary of his haven, Assange stated, “…if the Swedish government immediately drops their request tomorrow, I still cannot leave this embassy.” Why? “If I walk out the front door I could be arrested in relation to the United States.” A complicit UK has stationed police officers outside the embassy and in its lobby at a cost of nearly $6 million (as of the end of May.)
