I break my more than two day silence – which I was considering making permanent (more on that, perhaps, another time) to bring you this story which I think brings some much needed cheer for Julian Assange and breaks open the myth of US intelligence service honourable and honest efforts in the country’s interests – showing and shaming them as utter rogues, capable of the most heinous and despicable of crimes, against anybody. You, me, anybody – including Julian Assange.
I found this on the ‘World Socialist Web Site’ but thought [sadly], hey, nobody is going to take that as honest truth unless supported – though why that should be the case any more than Western MSM ‘stories’, I can’t imagine. So I also choose to add a link to the story in none other than ‘Stars and Stripes’. There obviously are others, but this seemed a fitting juxtaposition. Judge for yourself which is the more relevant.
While they both say some of the same things, I prefer the much more in-depth WSWS version. More meaty and juicy – and much more hard-hitting. Still, they are both fair in their own way, which in itself is quite surprising.
I will say no more.
