Has someone been posting your classified documents online? Are you tired of them thumbing their nose at you? Would you like to see them taken down? It seems that it's open season on Wikileaks founder, and personality Julian Ass'ange. A Hacker that goes by the online handle Jester, has already taken credit for taking the Wikileaks website down once. Jesters' stated reasoning, he's a Hacktivist For Good. The Swedes of all people are trying to extradite Ass'ange, from wherever - it's not like he isn't hiding in plain sight. Oh and Ecuador took back their offer of safe haven. NYDailyNews, Ecuador's President retracts 'offer' of safe haven to Julian Assange made by deputy foreign minister. After uploading and publishing 100s of thousands of classified documents, and pissing off just about everyone not inhabiting their parent's basement - Ass'ange can't seem to stop catching a break.
While Assange has not made a public appearance for nearly a month, his lawyer insisted authorities know where to find him.
"Both the British and the Swedish authorities know how to contact him, and the security services know exactly where he is," Stephens told The Associated Press.
Interpol targets wikileak founder Julian Ass'ange with red notice. That looks serious. I wonder what is a red notice?The red notice does not compel individual nations to act on it, Mr. Kopel adds, and "Countries make their own decisions about how to treat a red notice. Some countries treat a red notice as an actionable request for an arrest; the United States does not." Nor does Interpol have any enforcement powers itself – it cannot enforce criminal laws, but rather is a mechanism to share information between law enforcement organizations around the globe.
I see, so it's a notice that the international community is going to gossip about Ass'ange's alleged kinky Swedish sex life.
I have to admit, I am cynical about Julian Ass'ange's motives for publishing classified American documents. Ass'ange, stated the documents he posted on the wikileaks website proves that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton should resign.
Stengel had said the U.S. Secretary of State was looking like "the fall guy" in the ensuing controversy, and had asked whether her firing or resignation was an outcome that Assange wanted. "I don't think it would make much of a difference either way," Assange said. "But she should resign if it can be shown that she was responsible for ordering U.S. diplomatic figures to engage in espionage in the United Nations, in violation of the international covenants to which the U.S. has signed up. Yes, she should resign over that." READ MORE HERE AT TIME.COM.
From what I have read Secretary of State Mrs Clinton, has been carrying out the duties of her office. Who does Julian Ass'ange think he is? " The Pollyanna of Hackers" In all honesty he comes off as a bit of a girl to me. I think the only reason the United States is moving on doing anything about Wikileaks is because of Ass'ange's threat to publish "Early next year, a major American bank will discover all its innermost workings exposed to the world." Okay maybe the Pentagon will shrug off a low level classified paper dump, and maybe even the State Department will let the little fish swim in the big pool, but when you start messing with Investment Bankers - Perhaps it's a document dump too far.
Right now at this point in the leaked documents, I can't tell if Julian Ass'ange is going to sink or swim. But if he goes ahead with his threat to publish corporate, and private banks documents. I think he might find that his public notoriety won't be enough to keep him buoyant.
Imus's guest this week Laura Ingraham, Mike Wallace, and Chris Reid. Each took a swing at the Wikileaks revelations and their impact.
Chip Reid - Was more concerned Michael Vick is still playing professional football.
Laura Ingraham - Channels DHS Janet Napolitano, Full Body Scanner Experience.
Mike Wallace, probably has the best take on what makes Julian Ass'ange tick. Mr Wallace compares what Ass'ange does to pornography.
