WikiLeaks' Julian Assange Responds to Hillary Clinton: Fair U.S. Trial for Snowden "Not Possible" 9.7.2014 Democracy Now!
In part two of our exclusive interview, Amy Goodman goes inside Ecuador's Embassy in London to speak with Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks. Assange has been living in the embassy for more than two years under political asylum. He faces investigations in both Sweden and the United States, where a secret grand jury is investigating WikiLeaks for its role in publishing a trove of leaked documents about the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, as well as State Department cables. Assange responds to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's recent comments that National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden should return home to face trial. "It's the advice of all our lawyers that he should not return to the United States. He'd be extremely foolish to do so," Assange says. "It's not possible to have a fair trial, because the U.S. government has a precedent of applying state secret privilege to prevent the defense from using material that is classified in their favor."

70 Years Later, Still Playing Politics With Freedom of the Press 18.6.2014 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
It is sometimes forgotten that President Franklin D. Roosevelt once wanted to order marines to occupy the Chicago Tribune's tower, or that Nixon famously said "subpoena all those bastards" before sending a Harvard professor to jail for refusing to testify against the New York Times. Every few decades, the White House takes a swing at a criminal investigation of the press, and each time gets closer to the ball. When we forget episodes like these, they are bound to repeat. In fact, since the passage of the Espionage Act, the spy law passed in the anti-German frenzy of World War I, every espionage investigation carried out against a publisher by an administration has targeted a major political enemy of the president. In each case, the publication under investigation had openly and actively aired the president's dirty laundry. Roosevelt despised the Chicago Tribune -- his feelings were "long running and well known" against the paper that regularly attacked his New Deal policies. He called for a criminal ...

WikiLeaks Statement on the Mass Recording of Afghan Telephone Calls by the NSA 23.5.2014 Commondreams.org Newswire

The National Security Agency has been recording and storing nearly all the domestic (and international) phone calls from two or more target countries as of 2013. Both the Washington Post and The Intercept (based in the US and published by eBay chairman Pierre Omidyar) have censored the name of one of the victim states, which the latter publication refers to as country "X".

Julian Assange on Being Placed on NSA "Manhunting" List & Secret Targeting of WikiLeaks Supporters 18.2.2014 Democracy Now!
Top-secret documents leaked by Edward Snowden have revealed new details about how the United States and Britain targeted the whistleblowing website WikiLeaks after it published leaked documents about the U.S.-led war in Afghanistan. According to a new article by The Intercept, Britain's top spy agency, the Government Communications Headquarters, or GCHQ, secretly monitored visitors to a WikiLeaks website by collecting their IP addresses in real time, as well as the search terms used to reach the site. One document from 2010 shows that the National Security Agency added WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange to a "manhunting" target list, together with suspected members of al-Qaeda. We speak to Assange live from the Ecuadorean embassy in London, where he has sought political asylum since 2012. Also joining us is his lawyer Michael Ratner, president emeritus of the Center for Constitutional Rights.

The other day I referred to those who "evince zero interest in the substance of the revelations about NSA and GCHQ spying which we're reporting on around the world", but "are instead obsessed with spending their time personally attacking the journalists, whistleblowers and other messengers who enable the world to know about what is being done." There are dozens of examples, one of whom is the author of a post thi
