CNN is reporting that Interpol has added founder of WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, to its most wanted list. Assange is suspected of rape, sexual molestation, and additional indiscretions in Sweden. Assange had previously applied to be a permanent resident of Sweden, but his application was denied.
On Sunday, WikiLeaks released more than 250,000 documents, including secret and classified memos in an attempt to assassinate foreign relations, creating an embarrassing nightmare for the U.S.. Documents released were full of linguistic faux pas and colorful descriptions of world leaders and allies to the United States. Some memos were signed by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Assange would like Clinton to resign for what he views as inciting diplomats to take part in “espionage” acts within the U.N.. The incident has unleashed a barrage of apologies from the White House, and Clinton has been meeting with world leaders in attempt to mend broken fences and heal bruised egos.
Assange is an Australian native and a former hacker with a mental twist, who has turned aside from caution and responsibility when it comes to foreign policy and homeland security. The decision to release documents of a sensitive nature at the very least shows poor moral judgment on the part of Assange. It appears that there is no moral compass guiding the deluded head of WikiLeaks, nor does he choose to implore common sense or sensitivity to the terrorist threats that the U.S as well as other countries are currently facing. Assange acts without regard to any potential danger that his false beliefs may bring upon soldiers. Assange has been resistant to reason and invalidating evidence to his warped, misguided agenda.
The Republic of Ecuador’s deputy foreign minister surprisingly offered up the country as a place where Assange would be welcome to seek asylum, but president of Ecuador Rafael Correa was quick to retract the invitation.
In the past, Assange has claimed to be in fear for his life and that all allegations against him are untrue and no more than a conspiracy to cause him undue stress and ruin his reputation. The United States is now conducting a criminal investigation regarding Sunday’s release of government documents by WikiLeaks. Assange’s whereabouts are unknown, as he has now gone into hiding.
