There has opened up an alarming call for the assassination of Julian Assange and the death penalty for Pvt Manning who allegedly passed on the confidential documentation to Wikileaks. First Ms McFarland wrote a article on Fox News website calling for the prosecution then execution of Private Bradley Manning;
Let’s charge him and try him for treason. If he’s found guilty, he should be executed.
She also stated that President Obama should use his influence to have Iceland shut down Wikileaks, for they are hosting the site, then he should turn to Australia to revoke Julian’s Passport leaving him stranded in whichever country he is residing. Then she suggest that Obama should request that Julian must be charged with espionage. If that is not going far enough Ms McFarland wrote that President Obama should have Julian extradited to the United States of America and have him brought in front of military tribunal even though he is not a terrorist or part of any military and should be tried for his ‘crimes’.
Now Professor Tom Flanagan , the adviser of the Stephen Harper Prime Minister of Canada, said that Julian Assange should be assassinated for publishing those confidential documents. He did it in a joking manner saying Obama should have Julian assassinated and he should use drones to do it. That someone could say something so callous on a news broadcast just show how power hungry politicians have become. They honestly believe people do not have right to political or military information. That as normal citizens who they ‘rule’ instead of working for, they have the right to do as they please without giving explanations of what is truly happening they are only interested in protecting themselves. Without people like Julian and without sites like Wikileaks the people will be ignorant of what their governments are doing behind their backs.
