WikiLeaks said Monday that Ecuador cut the Internet connection for Assange, who has been holed up in the country's London embassy since 2012. Deeply disturbing silence from the Ecuador embassy following yesterdays shut down of Julian Assange’s internet access. Of course, the real question is to what extent the Ecuadorian government has been compromised and what that ultimately means for the fate of Assange. Clearly, Assange has made numerous enemies over the years with his repeated release of confidential information that has been somewhat embarrassing for many world leaders.Certainly, Hillary’s opinion on how to handle Assange was made quite clear when she asked, “can’t we just drone this guy".
Of course Kerry pressured Ecuador to stop Assange. There is an election coming up. Kerry wants to make sure that nothing else damaging about Clinton is released before the election. Clinton has her secrets and Kerry knows it. The only thing Kerry can do is silence freedom of speech so Assange can't tell the truth.
Yes, Secretary of State Kerry appealed to Ecuador to stop Assange because he was releasing too much classified information to tamper with the presidential election. An outside party or nation should not be able to have a say in who is elected here. Kerry had no choice but to ask Ecuador for help.
John Kerry may have wanted to stop Assange, but Ecudor has said that they made the decision on thier own to stop Assange. If Kerry had asked them to, they would not have kept this a secret. They were open and honest about the fact that they cut off his internet access.
