During an interview in London, WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange, walked out of an interview with CNN. The interviewer, Atika Shubert, continuously asked Assange about his personal legal issues. Assange thought she should be focusing on the 400,000+ pages of Iraq War documents just released by WikiLeaks. (Source).

“This interview is about something else,” Assange said to Shubert. “I’m going to walk if you’re going to contaminate us revealing the deaths of 104,000 people with attacks against my person” (Julian Assange Walk Out of CNN Interview)
And I agree with Julian Assange. Atika Shubert represents the West’s complete lack of care toward the torture, abuse, and murder inflicted upon countless Iraqis at the hands of American soldiers. And all she cares to ask about are Assange’s personal legal issues.
Why is she diverting the momentous release of Iraq War documents? It’s sickening, and that is why, I suspect, Assange walked out of the interview.
