Yeah, that place out 'there'. Anything not really Cambodia related should go here.

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange

Post by phuketrichard »

announced Monday that after spending two years in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London he will "soon" leave the diplomatic safe harbor.

He made the comments during a joint press conference with Ecuador's Foreign Minister Ricardo Patino. Assange did not elaborate on the timing.

Saw the news conference on cnn. seems he has been hurting plus I think is tired of the bullshit,

So how many agree with what he did with Wikileaks/is doing I do

How many believe the Swedish government made trumped up charges to get him back to Sweden so the us government could take him I do

How any believe we (all governments) have to many secrets? I do

I support Wiki leaks, all whistle blowers in fact. Odd thing is he hasn't, to my knowledge, been charged by Swedish authorities to date.

Depends on what secret is being told. Loved snowden. But think Bradley Manning should executed via fire squad.

I support whistleblowers who expose what I consider to be cover-up's going against the public interest in any sphere of authority, so Assange is good in my book. I believe Sweden are being used by the US to get Assange, the timing of the allegations were too coincidental. What interests me is what the US are using as leverage on Sweden. I admit I'm a conspiracy theorist and also noted the coincidental timing of the Cambodian police nabbing the Pirate Bay guy a week or so after the government received a large aid donation from Sweden.

In the UK I fully expect a former Home Secretary to be exposed as covering up and possibly being involved in a particular strand of the ongoing child abuse enquiry. If it weren't for the persistence of Private Eye I doubt the whole phone tapping scandal would have been forced out.

So my respect goes to those that risk their personal freedom against Big Brother.
