Julian Assange Speaks to The United Nations and Obama Declares Assange America's No. 1 Enemy To Be Taken Dead or Alive

President Obama once again makes a flowery speech 
disingenuosly and audaciously claiming that  He and America are always on the side of freedom and was and is on the side of the Arab Sping reform movement .

Meanwhile Obama is still giving orders to kill innocent citizens in othe countries such as Afghanistan, Libya, Iraq all under the pretext of The Global War On Terror and bringing freedom and democracy to the Middle East and other parts of the world.

It is difficult for anyone outside the West to take Obama seriously and why should they. Since day one Obama has acted as badly and as criminaly as the former Bush/Cheney Regime .

This was just more empty rhetoric on the part of Obama which ignores the current policies and actions which are now part of  the historical record of the USA and Obama himself.

Meanwhile in the USA under the orders of President Obama Bradley Manning the alleged leaker of US gov't documents to Wikileaks has been indefinitly detained and abused and tortured in American prisons .

Julian Assange to UN: 'US trying to erect national secrecy regime' (Full version)

Published on Sep 27, 2012 by Russia Today

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has called on the United States to move from words to actions, and put an end to its persecution of WikiLeaks, its people and its sources

What is most troublsome is that the USA and the Obama administration and the mainstream media have learned nothing from the fiasco in Iraq.

In fact Obama called the Iraq invasion and occupation even though a million Iraqi citizens died  a success story since the US left Iraq ostensibly last december.

But the main reason Obama decided to withdraw from Iraq because the Iraqi government refused to extend  US troops and personnel immunity  from prosecution by the Iraqi government or courts .

" WikiLeaks Declared 'Enemy' In US Military Documents, Australian Newspaper Reports "By Jack Mirkinson Huffington Post, Sept. 27, 2012

The United States has declared WikiLeaks and its founder Julian Assange to be an "enemy," an Australian newspaper reported Wednesday.

The Sydney Morning Herald, which has been reporting for months on behind-the-scenes government communications about Assange, wrote that declassified Air Force documents showed that military employees found to have been in contact with WikiLeaks personnel could be charged with "communicating with the enemy."

The maximum punishment for communicating with the enemy is death. The Herald wrote that this is the same classification given to Al Qaeda or the Taliban.

The revelation will do little to quell fears among WikiLeaks supporters about the American view of the organization. One of the reasons Julian Assange says he is still holed up in the Ecuadorian embassy in London is that he fears being extradited to America. Though there has been fierce debate over whether this could occur, and whether Assange is instead attempting to avoid a potential sex crimes prosecution in Sweden, it is clear he is no friend of the US government.

The Herald has also reported that Australian diplomats believe the American government has been investigating a possible prosecution of Assange for over a year,

Assange is not keeping quiet. Just on Wednesday, he spoke via video satellite to a meeting of the United Nations.
