Julian Assange Arrested
Whether you’re a fan of him or not, well it doesn’t really matter at this point. Ecuador canceled…revoked…we’re not 100% sure of the proper terminology, but we know that Ecuador is no longer offering Julian Assange, founder of Wikileaks, asylum. And he got arrested in London early this morning. So ends the 2,487 days at the Ecuadorian Embassy.
Some people are huge fans of his, being that he exposed the widespread corruption of our government. Others are not so much in love with the guy that posted classified information from all over the world, not just the United States. And there are some who are not such huge fans of his due to the alleged sexual assault that Julian has long denied took place.
But…all of that now, every last bit of it we assume, will be brought before a court in the United States as the United Kingdom plans to extradite Mr. Assange to the states.
The Assange case is a wonky one. Truth has become so convoluted that at times with all the misdirection and smearing of a person’s public character, it’s difficult to truly know who the good guys are. While the courts will hear the case and the lawyers will argue back and forth, we know that ultimately, history will be the ultimate judge of Julian Assange and whether or not his deads were righteous or malicious.
What is our opinion you may ask? Hell man, we don’t know. We don’t want the NSA spying on us, but we also don’t want our secrets being compromised either…it’s difficult to draw the line with this instance because we can all agree that no matter how cool we think we’ve gotten with our NSA agent (his name is Todd, we believe), a government spying on its citizens it’s pretty damn not ok so thanks for telling us about that…however…um dude don’t go around letting our classified info fall into hostile hands, we’re pretty pissed about that.
So…we’re not really sure where to go with this whole ordeal.
