Here's to hoping that that IMF loan will not bankrupt Ecuador.

The price for Assange turned was $4.2 billion, signed 6 weeks ago.

 

NYTimes covered the fact that Monero was trying to sell Assange for US debt relief last December... Paul Manafort was allegedly the middle man. [link]

wihout wikileaks and assange, we wouldn't know:

that people were being tortured in guantanamo

that the military had taken no action on civilian and press killings in iraq

that barclay's and other big banks were laundering money for crime syndicates

that governments everywhere were spying on their own people

the details of the TPP, and so it would've passed

the criminal conduct of hillary clinton, and so she would've won the election

just to name a few. democracy depends on voters having information, so of course those who want to keep their shady deals secret want us all to think assange is a terrorist.

Snowden covered the "governments everywhere were spying on their own people" one in the most detail. It was already obvious they were doing it in the US since a whistleblower inside a large telco had reported what they had to do - clone all traffic over to the government but Snowden really blew the lid off how global it is & confirmed that Microsoft, Google etc are in on it. Wikileaks released the tools & methods that the CIA uses to hack people with their Vault7 dump years after Snowden's revelations.
