Yesterday, in the Westminster Magistrates Court in London, the lawyers for WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange presented to the judge a document from me stating that I have put up $20,000 of my own money to help bail Mr. Assange out of jail.
Furthermore, I am publicly offering the assistance of my website, my servers, my domain names and anything else I can do to keep WikiLeaks alive and thriving as it continues its work to expose the crimes that were concocted in secret and carried out in our name and with our tax dollars.
We were taken to war in Iraq on a lie. Hundreds of thousands are now dead. Just imagine if the men who planned this war crime back in 2002 had had a WikiLeaks to deal with. They might not have been able to pull it off. The only reason they thought they could get away with it was because they had a guaranteed cloak of secrecy. That guarantee has now been ripped from them, and I hope they are never able to operate in secret again.
So why is WikiLeaks, after performing such an important public service, under such vicious attack? Because they have outed and embarrassed those who have covered up the truth. The assault on them has been over the top:
And indeed [Wikileaks is a terrorist organization]! They exist to terrorize the liars and warmongers who have brought ruin to our nation and to others. Perhaps the next war won’t be so easy because the tables have been turned — and now it’s Big Brother who’s being watched … by us!
He goes on to explain how 9-11 and the Iraq war and other stuff might have been prevented if Wikileaks had existed back in those days. Or something like that.
Lachlan Markay and Scott Whitlock at Newsbusters both eviscerate Moore’s ridiculous “argument” here. Make sure to read the whole thing. Me? I’m going to go vigorously wash my eyes out with soap, because they feel really dirty after reading not only Moore’s “defense” of Assange but also his poor excuse of an explanation for why he posted $20,000 in bail money for him – words like “patriot” and “transparency” were used. Sick, sick, sick.
