Assange for President ?
On a Serious note; the US and the UK and whomever else should cease and desist in trying to arrest him on false charges .
There was no arrest. No escape. No surrender. No assassination attempt. No human smuggling. No helicopter or hovercraft. Just a wanted man, on a balcony with a microphone.
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange emerged from a window onto a small balcony of the Ecuadorean Embassy on Sunday, where he made his first public remarks since being granted asylum.
“I ask President Obama to do the right thing,” Assange, who’s been holed up in the embassy since June, said as he read a written statement. “The United States must renounce its witch hunt against WikiLeaks. The Unites States must dissolve its FBI investigation. The United States must vow that it will not seek to prosecute our staff or our supporters.”
A crowd of 200 gathered near the embassy to hear Assange speak as dozens of London police officers–who had created a wide barrier in front of the embassy–stood watch.
