Assange Says Spying Obama Must Resign

From the Agence France-Presse:

Obama should resign if approved UN spying: WikiLeaks founder

December 5, 2010

MADRID — President Barack Obama should resign if it can be shown that he approved spying by US diplomatic figures on UN officials, the founder of WikiLeaks said in an interview published Sunday.

What exactly is wrong with spying on members of the UN. Isn’t turnabout fair play? (For the record, that is the primary job for most UN employees, second only to grifting.)

"The whole chain of command who was aware of this order, and approved it, must resign if the US is to be seen to be a credible nation that obeys the rule of law. The order is so serious it may well have been put to the president for approval," Julian Assange told Spanish daily El Pais.

"Obama must answer what he knew about this illegal order and when. If he refuses to answer or there is evidence he approved of these actions, he must resign," he added during an Internet chat interview published online

Well, anyone who calls for Mr. Obama’s resignation can’t be all bad. Though, Mr. Assange is probably just ticked off that Mr. Obama hasn’t bowed to him yet.

Assange gave the interview to El Pais on Saturday from an undisclosed location. The 39-year-old Australian is believed to be in Britain, and a report said he could be arrested this week…

He said WikiLeaks had "dozens" of people who were helping the organisation deal with the cyber-attack and set up the mirror websites "but it takes a lot of time for us to manage the process".

"We are automating that process and will soon have hundreds. If there is a battle between the US military and the preservation of History, we have insured History will win."

There are always people around the world who are willing to take up arms – at least cyberly – against the United States. That is, when they aren’t asking for money from us.

Assange said he and others who work for WikiLeaks had received "hundreds" of "specific" death threats from "US military militants".

"That is not unusual, and we have become practiced from past experiences at ignoring such threats from Islamic extremists, African kleptocrats and so on. Recently the situation has changed with these threats now extending to our lawyers and my children," he added.

Sure they have. Because of all of the devastating exposés WikiLeaks has published about Muslim and African countries.

By the way, note that Mr. Assange says that the US military are threatening their lawyers and children, unlike the high minded Muslims.

Assange said he believed the "ripples are just starting to flow throughout the world" from the release of the State Department cables.

"But I believe geopolitics will be separated into pre and post cablegate phases," he said.

This ‘drama queen for a day’ could give Mussolini megalomania lessons.

Still we can’t help but wonder how long it will be before Mr. Obama apologizes to him – and bows down?

    Sure sure sure, this cluck just popped up out of nowhere and millions of precious documents just happened to land in his hands. Uh huh.

    No one has yet commented on the remarkable symmetry of the STUXNET worm reportedly going all the way back to m 2006 in theorizing and formulating so the hard work of designing a working model could be released by 2009, And that Wikileaks came on line in 2006.

    Cyberwar. One is soft, the other hard. Either way, remember Charles Hayes. And if you don;t the story of Charles Hayes and his fabled Fifth Column, that just goes to show you how well our state media can control what you think you know.

    Wikileaks is white-hat cyberwar against the entrenched elite.

      You have to note the wiki waif’s media sympathizers. It’s practically the entire elite media. Which is to say their loyalties haven’t been to the state or Obama necessarily but their multi-national super wealthy Leftist funders.

      I believe it’s the maniacal enviro-fascist wing of the International Aristocracy going rogue on the rest of the world regimes after their movement was publicly thrown under the bus probably in no small part because, heh, China wanted nothing to do with their scam!

      The release of those internal regime files from the Dopenhagen Accord that Steve covered is very telling.

      Little Satan Soros letting his new favored Assboy go rogue on all these regimes he either bought, including his fallen president, or those with whom he was competing, like the old school commies to the East and the Arab puppeteers.

      Curious how he’s still alive but Britain’s probably the relatively safest territory.. Other than America, where I fully expect him to come after releasing his probably over-hyped insurance cache (unless the BoA files somehow implicate the fraud in the bailout conspiracy). Then a huge show-trial about how this was for the best and blah blah, and finally a pardon.

      I’m not gonna panic until something is revealed that is worse than a sneer at foreign leader.

      And I’m not believing it is anything other than the Obamy cabal until they publish his birth certificate or Traitor John’s original discharge papers.

    • tranquil.night says:

      Pro, what do you think the Moron regime gains by releasing cables that by and large validate the Neo-Con view on world diplomacy and politics, especially with his domestic and economic policies also being exposed as frauds?

      Is it simply an ideological point or distraction that’s fallen flat, or is total internet (speech) regulation on the basis of national security truly the endgame here like Rush just suggested?

      “This would be the first case to lay out the moral impeative for an international legal foundation for regulated speech, vis-a-vis Net Neutrality.” 9/22/10 http://sweetness-light.com/archive/assange-dod-may-be-behind-rape-claim#comment-186949

      If so, we’ve had this pegged from the beginning.

    • proreason says:

      Nothing has come out that hurts the cabal in the slightest. It’s all arcane mumbo jumbo. There isn’t a single item that has caught the public imagination. Oh, there are some mildly embarrassing disclosures like the Hildabeast spying on diplomats (Quelle Shocke !!), but nobody will even remember what they were 5 minutes after the msm stops chattering about them.

      That’s why I think the cabal is involved in the release. It’s hard to imagine there aren’t tons of really embarrassing diplomatic cables that would be headline news. Instead the headline is “250,000 cables revealed as administration remains silent”. O’Reilly is upset of course, but he is perpetually mistified that strange things seem to dog a smart american patriot like his buddy Barack.

      But the hubub does keep the press off Obamy’s back while his handlers plot and scheme during the lame duck session, doesn’t it?

      It’s just flak in Obamy’s war with America. While we twitter about NK, unimportant cables and whether 250K or 1M is “rich”, he destroys another cornerstone of freedom.

    Assange has children? Why didn’t he think he think about their welfare before he got involved in this nonsense? What a self-involved idiot…not unlike our president.

    There are always people around the world who are willing to take up arms – at least cyberly

    The one thing the computer has done is enable the passive-aggressive. Those who have no other means to vent their psychosis. They can sit in a room, undetected, unknown and launch a viral attack, screw with credit reports and steal identities, or, publish sensitive information about a nation, a person or both. Such is the characteristic of a cyber-bully. A new term that has come to much attention in the past couple of years. Life-wreckers and trouble-makers really get their jollies doing this. I therefore feel no compassion towards them when they meet with a horrible fate.

    Assange likes to play the innocent while acting out his desire to damage people or entities when the real problem is that he hates himself, his gay-tendencies and wishes he could be a caped superhero, if only for one moment in his otherwise pathetic, meaningless but all-too-messed-up life. He’s a pathetic, weak, useless thing.

  4. NoNeoCommies says:

    One arrogant narcissist attacking another.
    Maybe this sickly, not quite male, infoterrorist would like to play some street ball with Obama.
    I think the Prez can take him, even with the well deserved fat lip.

  5. JohnMG says:

    Isn’t this guy’s (Assange) fifteen minutes just about up?

  6. GL0120 says:

    “Still we can’t help but wonder how long it will be before Mr. Obama apologizes to him – and bows down?”
    This guy looks like the type of pretty boy Obammy is rumored to like, perhaps bending over rather than down is in the cards.
