Sacrificial Lamb, or principled individual protected by the rule of law?

    This seems rather the most significant, most obvious demonstration of the utter corruption of the US and western countries legal systems.

    Julian is comparable to John Peter Zenger. He has informed the public and angered the Crown. Spoken the truth and be punished for it.

    He has broken no meaningful law and has already served 7 years in prison. He has exposed the crimes of government, the highest civic duty, and has been imprisoned for 7 years.

    If there is a drop of dignity left in the US Justice Department, it's time to obey the law.

    But that same Justice Department lied to SCOTUS in the Reynolds v. US case, 1953. So it's a long shot that justice will be done to Julian anytime soon. I hope I am wrong.

    I hope you're wrong too!

    The sane need to make a stink about this - we're few in number, but can be mighty in voice!

    My guess is that he will end up facing allegations of hacking in the US after being extradited from the UK to Sweden and then onto the US . IIRC Obama had a team trying to make this very case but decided there was no evidence. Imo ,the squeeze is obviously being put on Chelsea Manning to try to manufacture some evidence with which to make for a decent chance of a conviction. I think / hope she will stay strong because they are lost without a change in her testimony surrounding the data she gave to Wikileaks
