WikiLeaks head walks out of interview

The head of WikiLeaks, Australian Julian Assange, terminated an interview with CNN, when reporter Atika Schubert turned away from discussing the 400,000 war documents he released, and asked about rape allegations made against him in Sweden.

Assange was asked about a former disgruntled employee, and accusations of rape he had made. He said they were fabricated by the Pentagon or another enemy.

“I’m not going to talk about that in relation to this … this interview is about something else. I will have to walk if you’re going to contaminate us revealing the deaths of 104,000 people with attacks against my person.”

Former WikiLeaks spokesperson Daniel Schmitt were fired, and have now gone running to the media saying their boss was a bad leader and made "questionable choices" including unilaterally deciding to release names of Afghan intelligence sources who will probably face discipline by the Taliban.

Evidently, Juliana Assange supposedly told employee Herbert Snorrason “I am the heart and soul of this organization, its founder, philosopher, spokesperson, original coder, organizer, financier, and all the rest,” and, “I don’t like your tone. If it continues, you should quit.”

Assange’s British visa expires next August, and the Australian Government has said it will side with the US.

Bryan, I seem to remember that smearing the messenger was a tactic you used recently on Syd Walker in an attempt to discredit his views on the Wild Rivers legislation. Does that mean that you, too, are predictable, pathetic, and evil?

To be frank "Frank", Syd is not a messenger. Syd is a fabricator - just like John Howard.
