Transparency will set us free, we used to say back then. WikiLeaks had published papers belonging to a Swiss bank , Julius Baer, which it said strongly suggested a money laundering operation. Even then, working with WikiLeaks was enormously frustrating. In the weeks leading up to the award ceremony, Assange went silent on us.

It was Julian Assange — then, as now, addicted to drama. He was apparently paranoid enough to avoid the main entrance, but not quite paranoid enough to avoid accepting an award in front of most of the British media and legal elite, who had paid good money to bask in the presence of worthy dissidents. Iceland would become a safe haven for whistleblowers, hackers, and internet freedom activists. His enthusiasm for full transparency for those he perceived as powerful elites was only matched by his own demand for full secrecy from those around him.
At an Index on Censorship event in late , Assange embarrassed the free speech—focused organizers by demanding no press photographers be allowed in the room.

He has gone to extreme lengths to avoid facing sexual assault accusations in Sweden: For that, he is a coward and a misogynist who should face up to the consequences of his actions and attitudes toward women. But the charge brought against him by the US is about an act of journalism — an act people may agree or disagree with, but which should not take up the time of a federal jury. In Britain, as I type this, police are attempting to prosecute a pair of journalists for using material supposedly "stolen" from police in their investigation of a massacre of Catholic football fans watching a game during the World Cup.

Why should they, when the stupid leaders of the United States will do it for them? We checked a previous comment by Trump on this topic. They're forcing people into our country. Is the Mexican government sending people across the border, rather than individuals making decisions on their own to leave in search of seek employment or to join family members in the United States?
