Golly, a mainstream journalist not afraid to write about Assange? Hope he stays safe. No sudden heart attacks or urge to commit three bullet suicide or something like that. Thank you @BobEgelko for your courage. Truly.
Attacks on whistleblowers have more to do with protecting crimes and wrongdoing than National Security. What has already happened is well know by those interested. It’s just that the general public were ignorant and it needs to be kept that way to protect political interests.
