Assange's case shows US & British hypocrisy on press freedom
The UK government on June 17 approved the extradition of Julian Assange, the founder of Wikileaks, to the United States.
It is reported that Wikileaks released large numbers of documents on US-launched wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and disclosed facts about CIA's cyber hacking operations. Over the past decade or so, the US government has woven plenty of charges to continue to suppress Assange and try to arrest him.
Assange's case is like a mirror, which reflects the hypocrisy of the US and the UK on 'press freedom' that people are free to expose other countries but subject to severe punishment if they expose the U.S., the UK and their allies.
