Handy thread summarizes today's news of the CIA's assassination, rendition plans for #Assange
Replying to @kgosztola
The CIA could not prove WikiLeaks was working at the behest of the Russian government. So rather than claim authority to target WikiLeaks that way officials sought to reframe the organization as a "hostile entity." Then it wouldn't matter that they weren't working for Russia.

That transparency is not in the interest of the CIA, even if the discloser were “hostile” to it, doesn’t necessarily make the disclosures those of a “hostile entity”.

Transparency defeats the entire purpose of the CIA. By design.

In light of these findings, why is this case not considered tampered with and thrown out? #FreeAssangeNOW

WikiLeaks is a hostile entity, and I certainly see plenty of evidence that it's a Russian chess piece.

The Embassy kicked him out, rendering all this elaborate maneuvering somewhat useless, no?
