Still under house arrest, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange discusses the experience of solitary confinement with the new president of Tunisia.  President Marzouki offers him asylum. Fascinating interview on RT:

Earlier Jack made an excellent comment on this post about only trusting Assange if he died in custody - referring to widespread allegations that he works for US intelligence and Wikileaks is some kind of disinformation campaign. I accidentally deleted the whole post trying to embed the video in it - and lost the comment.

I'm really sorry, Jack. I can't recapture your elegant turn of phrase.
I share Jack's concerns about Wikileaks being some kind of disinformation campaign. The hundreds of thousands of cables are extremely hard to research being released en masse like this and rarely contain information that isn't already available somewhere on the Internet.

I don't think Assange is the problem, though. I think US intelligence has been using him as a mule for their own purposes. I think Julian is a sweet boy with Asperger's. His lack of understanding of social relationships made him extremely easy to set up on the rape charges, and his concrete black and white thinking made it hard from him to recognize some of his associates (for example Applebaum, who teaches TOR to the Arab Spring activists) work for the CIA.

I think he's a classic Lee Harvey Oswald, another famous geek who seems to have suffered from Asperger's.
Not quite as funny, Don as Your deranged comment, only days ago:

We go to war "". . .from time to time . . ."

to which I responded:

"From an institution FAR more esteemed than where you taught:


Since WWII america has found justification to militarily intervene in the affairs of Iran (four times), Yugoslavia, Uruguay, Greece, Germany, China, the Philippines (three times), Puerto Rico, Korea, Vietnam, Guatemala (twice), Egypt, Lebanon (twice), Iraq (three times and ongoing), China, Panama (twice), Vietnam, Cuba (twice), Panama, Indonesia, the Dominican Republic, Cambodia (twice), Chile, Angola, Oman, Laos, Libya (three times)), El Salvador, Nicaragua, Grenada, Honduras, Bolivia, Liberia (twice), Saudi Arabia, Somalia (twice), Yugoslavia (twice), Bosnia, Haiti (twice), Zaire, Albania, Sudan, Afghanistan (three times and ongoing), Yemen (three times), Macedonia, Colombia, Liberia, Pakistan, and Syria.

you call this from time to time?

Ever wonder why your audience is primarily a life-long loser who ran for regional office, once and garnered ~ 1% of the vote?

wink, f*ckin', wink."

To which you, ever the loquacious one, had no response -- too busy working on your next drunken screed?

I've seen part of all of the Assange series. He's not really a talk show host as much as a really good investigative reporter. The American media trashed him royally for his interview with the Hezbollah leader, but who else in the USA would do an interview like that? Assange asks tough questions, and in the process, we all learn a lot that we didn't know before.
I agree, ONL. He lays out issues and introduces us to personalities that the corporate media doesn't dare touch.
I watched his interviews, and I agree, he is an excellent reporter. Yes, he asks the tough questions, but also one can detect that he has no agenda whatsoever. It is refreshing. If he is faking it; he is doing a great job. R
