Rumoured attempts by Australia to withdraw Assange’s passport will not deter Wikileaks. It is more than a website, and more than Julian Assange. It is now a Movement, one for transparence in foreign policy and for putting an end to hypocritical public utterances by governments. Crowley’s statement that US diplomats are only diplomats is nonsense, a blatant lie. Every US embassy employs in its staff a “political officer” whose job is to gather intelligence. Yet the spineless US media never questions such assertions.
