How does this embassy-refuge thing work? Do you get a nice room? Do they do your laundry for you?

What about clothes and food? Do they bring you new things all the time?

And do you get to attend the embassy parties? That seems like a good time.

He won't get elected. The only way a minor party candidate gets elected to the Oz senate is if they have some preference deals with the major parties. Good luck with that Julian.

ya see, if you ever bothered voting in Australia, you'd know straight away that the senate vote is basically a lottery and at least tossing a useless vote for Ass-flange is keeping the religious nutjobs floating around somewhere outside the range of the skill crane that is proportional senate voting here.  Not only is it funny, it makes sense.  +1 Ass-flange to keep the nut job quotient fair and balanced!

It's a good thing that Australia wouldn't, on the basis of its extradition treaty with Sweden, pack him off to Sweden on the basis of his having been charged with an offence under Swedish law.

Oh, wait:

"Each Contracting Party undertakes to extradite to the other Contracting Party...any person found in its territory who is charged by a competent authority with, or has been convicted of, an offence against the law of the other Contracting Party...
 Subject to the provisions of this Article, extradition shall be granted only in respect of the following offences:
...
(vii) Rape.
(viii) Unlawful sexual intercourse with a female.
(ix) Indecent assault."

Twinkles: I don't know how this works: would he, as Senator in Australia, have automatic diplomatic immunity?


Generally speaking NOBODY gets automatic diplomatic immunity unless explicitly specified in a treaty between two nations.

A diplomat arrives in the country, presents his diplomatic credentials, his credentials are accepted, and he takes his post with the level of immunity granted by his position.  (Only full ambassadors and visiting heads of state get total immunity, most diplomats and officials get lesser immunity)

If their credentials are not accepted, or are later rejected and they are declared persona non grata (i.e. not welcome in the country), then they are to leave the country immediately.

However, taking a person who is sitting in an Embassy of one country, and have another country try to extend diplomatic status to him so he can use that to avoid an arrest warrant and travel through his host country to return to the country that extended the diplomatic status is WAY out of the norms for diplomatic anything.  Then again, this Assange numbskull is a walking diplomatic incident.

I hope he rots for everything he's done.  Even if it's only conviction for the rapes, at least justice will be served that the scumbag who endangered countless soldiers and covert operatives with his reckless and childish "secrets are bad!  information wants to be free!" philosophy will be behind bars at last.

If he thinks secrets are always bad and all information should be free, why not start by posting his credit card and bank account numbers to wikileaks.  Yeah, didn't think so.

Good point. It'll make life difficult if he ever wants to leave Australia and/or his term ends, though!

Not that it matters, since the two dozen Met. officers stationed permanently outside the embassy will arrest him first and worry about the legal niceties once he's on the first flight to Stockholm...

Even if this plan is fool-proof, he still has to get elected.

And "Vote for me because I was falsely accused of rape because the US wants to get me for leaking classified information and I can't leave the Ecuadorian embassy in London, UK" is not a great party platform.

Don't forget "Down with America." The man's got a bit of an obsession with that, and there's no way that won't leak into the party platform.

FarkinNortherner: Good point. It'll make life difficult if he ever wants to leave Australia and/or his term ends, though!


My guess is that he'll hop a plane to Ecuador 2-3 hours before the end of his term, because yeah; Australia will extradite him the moment it gets the chance. It might even evict then extradite, political consequences be damned.

He may BE an ass...but can you point to a single soldier actually endangered by his actions?
Beyond the kneejerk "anything the government deems classified is good enough" I've seen in this matter.
Frankly, the stuff I saw released, actually makes the U.S. look pretty good.

Assange's personal data is a red herring, unless you truly believe governments should be LESS accountable than individuals...which would make you an authoritarian.

I genuinely don't care what he believes.  I don't care about his motivations for his little crusade.  I just want to see him either rotting away in a jail cell, or rotting away 6 feet under ("disappearing" is another valid option).

What I know is that he actively seeks to undermine the USA through releasing state secrets online, and releasing edited versions of videos to specifically make it look like the US is commiting war crimes.  He even admitted the "collateral murder" video is not unedited and was edited to cast the US in a bad light.  He pretends to be on some crusade about truth or justice, and is really just a foreign national with an anti-American agenda.

What I care about is the safety of my brothers in arms and my colleages in the Intelligence Community, something he has zero regard for.

1.  Three Million SIPRNET users?  Citation needed.

2. There is accountability.  PFC Manning did it WAY wrong.  "I am a Soldier in the US Army, and a member of the Military Intelligence Corps with a Top Secret/SCI clearance. I have found something on SPIRNet that I think may be a Law of War violation. I should. . ."

Wrong:  "Copy this, plus a quarter-million other files I haven't reviewed and give them to a foriegn national so he can post all of them, the vast majority of which I haven't been able to even read myself, on the open internet!"

Less Wrong: "Copy the files showing specific violations of the Law of War, then send it anonymously to investigative reporters at major Newspapers of Record to let it be handled by investigative journalism."

Right: "Tell somebody with oversight authority.  I can tell my chain of command.  If I don't trust them, I can report this to the Inspector General's Office.  If I don't trust ANYBODY in the DoD, I can notify a sitting Congressman's office and be legally protected to whistleblow to any Represenative or Senator and be completely legally protected under the Whistleblower Protection Act, and the Congressman can use the Speech and Debate Clause of the Constitution to override classification issues, like was done in the Pentagon Papers case."

3. You think they're going to say who was hurt by this?  The government still considers the documents, and their contents, classified.  National Security Does Not Work That Way.  They aren't going to say anything about them, including who was hurt by the release of what document.  Well, they'll say it, but in closed classified court hearings, like the ones PFC Manning is undergoing.
 
2013-02-18 07:56:32 AM
I really get the feeling of a not very well socialised, control freak type off this guy tbh.


Swedish authorities' case against him is "falling apart'', he says.
Really? Not "on hold for as long as he's in legal limbo" then, he hasn't disproved anything he's just put himself out of reach.
He says things like that and, charitably, I begin to wonder about his ability to tell truth from fiction. Were I inclined to be uncaritable, I might wonder if he's not just dishonest.
 
2013-02-18 07:57:03 AM
Has he tried inverting the polarity yet?
 
2013-02-18 07:58:28 AM
The people calling him a hero seem pretty blind to me.

He seems to only release "heavily edited" data sometimes taken out of context.  And only for countries/governments not paying him.

Notice he has a TV show on RTV, the Russian propoganda channel for the west.  Notice he doesn't release anything incriminating about Russia, China, etc.  Only western countries and nations that people paying him don't like.  I guess it's just a coincidence.

I'm just speaking my honest opinion about him.  Would you prefer a pretty little lie or for Fark to actually have people not speaking their mind?

I know a a number of soldiers at Ft. Huachuca, and some colleagues in other agencies, who would volunteer for Manning's firing squad, and wouldn't shed a tear if Assange fell down an elevator shaft onto some bullets.

I know I'm not the only person thinking this, it's a safe bet there are 100,000 military servicemembers and members of the intelligence community who have a similar feeling about both of them.
 
2013-02-18 08:01:56 AM

Why would he have any regard to for people that openly advocate for murdering or disappearing civilians?

Anyway, I don't think he's some folk hero but you're part of the reason he exists.

Somebody who is going out of his way to actively undermine the national security of a nation by obtaining its classified information then providing it to the enemies of that nation has very little claim on being some innocent civilian being wronged by the big bad Government.

He's no innocent bystander, he's somebody who set out to antagonize governments and endanger people defending their nation, then acts like he's a poor, oppressed civilian when things turn on him.

Did he really think he could take a quarter million classified US government documents and dump them on the open internet without serious consequences?

As for people like me being the reason people like him exist. . .no.  People like me exist to protect the country we love from all threats, foriegn and domestic. . .and he's a foriegn threat, every bit as dangerous (or probably moreso) than any random Taliban gunman or Al Qaida bombmaker:  A foreigner who seeks to undermine the security of this nation by trafficking in its secrets and posting those secrets openly to the world because he is ideologically opposed to the US government.

Of course they're not going to say.  But over-classification has been a huge problem for decades now...that's why you've got four million people just trying to keep track of our own 'top secret' documents...most of which are self-serving crap, or harmless, as this scandal basically proved.

Arguably the most massive data dump in our history, and not ONE concrete national interest has even been alleged to have been harmed.

Plenty of mindless 'trust the government' flag-waving, though.

All you need to know about the CIA, for example, is they've gone from being a spy agency to being just another ass-covering bureaucracy:  they gal who caught Bin Laden?

Do you feel the same way about the good American native-born son who outed Valerie Plame?

Hint: there's only one correct answer here, unless you're a partisan hypocrite.
