The Drone That Takes Out Juilian Assange

Earlier this year, as the Edward Snowden story was just starting to break, Michael Grunwald – the Time magazine senior national correspondent and poster boy for everything wrong with journalism, no strike that, poster boy for everything wrong with the blowback inducing homicidal bull in a cultural, religious and geopolitical china shop of US foreign policy that I like to call manifest destiny’s child, wrote that he “could not wait to write a defense of the drone strike that takes out Julian Assange. “

While it might be a stretch to imagine that Julian Assange is on Barack Obama’s infamous kill list- there is a overt trend to brand journalists as terrorists.  If the objective behind this trend is successful, it might grant Michael Grunwald his sadistic wish after all.

For example, this week it was revealed that British police are examining whether Guardian newspaper staff should be investigated for terrorism offenses over their handling of data leaked by Edward Snowden, Britain’s senior counter-terrorism officer said on Tuesday.


If one parrots the talking points that filter down form on high, for example, one is considered a journalist. If you challenge the dominant narrative, and very few do, you run the risk of being labeled a terrorist.

Ask Laura Poitras, the documentary filmmaker who worked with Glen Greenwald to film Edward Snowden and break perhaps the biggest story of the year. You’ll have to go to Germany to ask her, however, because she will not work in her country of birth, the United States, out of fear.

Ask Glenn Greenwald- who continues to break more of the evolving Edward Snowden story and saw his partner, David Miranda, detained in an airport under a terrorism act.

Ask the editors of the Guardian UK who had hard drives destroyed under the orders of UK security officials.
