“Mohamed Bouazizi did not set himself on fire so Barack Obama could be re-elected.” Julian Assange

Julian Assange of Wikileaks

Julian Assange, via video link from the Ecuadorean embassy in London to a side meeting of the U.N. General Assembly in New York on Wednesday, September 26, 2012, said that the US is now claiming the Arab Spring as their conquest, that Barack Obama and his administration is audacious in claiming this as their doing.

According to Democracy Now’s Amy Goodman, “Documents obtained under the Freedom of Information Act show WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange may have been designated an “enemy of the state” by the United States. U.S. Air Force counterintelligence documents show military personnel who contact WikiLeaks or its supporters may be at risk of being charged with “communicating with the enemy,” a military crime that carries a maximum sentence of death.”
