Outrageous statement… not really. Julian Assange should have been killed because he is a spy and an enemy provocateur. The fruits of his attack on the U.S. has been the death of numerous assets that he revealed the names, villages, relatives’ and even precise GPS locations of Afghans co-operating with Nato forces that were accessed easily from files released by Assange, and have been killed as a result. Besides the blood that is on his hands, letting him live set a precedent.
Julian Assange is not an American citizen and he has no constitutional rights. So, there’s no reason that the CIA can’t kill him. Moreover, ask yourself this question, If Julian Assange is killed tomorrow what message do you think that would send about releasing sensitive American data?
We witness the results of the precedent set by Assange with Snowden. Snowden has quoted Assange several times in his interviews. Also defending Assange as a hero. He espouses the same beliefs that not only should the U. S. not be spying on it’s people but also the U.S. should not be spying on the other 95% of the world.
Then there is both these wackos cry of justification. “The public has a right to know. Information wants to be free. The more you know the better.” There is some truth to that, but for the most part, it’s complete crap. If you don’t believe that, post the password to your email account and all your credit card info on the Internet. No why not? There should be no secrets, right?
Snowden had the ability to take his concerns to the Congress. There are myriads of avenues to Whistleblow. Instead just as Assange did he ran and hid. He is releasing secrets piecemeal just like Assange, in a manner that does nothing to stop what he objects too, but does do damage to U.S. security.
If Assange had been dealt with properly, Snowden would have acted within the law. After all he is a man of conscience, isn’t he?
Look at it this way, If we knew an Iranian spy had acquired the same information that Assange did and he intended to hand it over to Iran, the CIA wouldn’t hesitate to kill him. While we might prefer to arrest him, few Americans would protest if the CIA killed that spy before he could hand the data to Iran.
Assange did that one better. He didn’t just give sensitive information to one unfriendly regime. He gave the information to every hostile government in the world. Julian Assange may not be a terrorist nor is he using the same methods, but he has the same goal, to do as much damage to the United States as possible. He has now inspired a copycat with Snowden. Assange is the enemy of the American people and we will be safer when he’s dead.
That is why Assaange should have been killed.
