Say what you want about Assange but Wikileaks has done some good work. And Assange is certainly correct on the below. Obama has gone after whistleblowers with a particularly vindictive zeal. Largely I think because he doesn’t fundamentally trust the apparatus around him.
“Obama has prosecuted more whistleblowers under the espionage act than all previous presidents combined – more than twice as many,” Assange told RT’s Afshin Rattansi in a London interview.
“Of course he [Obama] says that’s espionage, but there is no allegation that any of these people have given their secrets to a foreign government or are working with a foreign government: allegations are they are working with the media,” he added.
