5:30 am
on t.v. felony law whatever that may be the 1st in it it looks like someone who wants to be a rock n roll group feels nothing approaching him and really chasing him down and finally she also succeeds in it and they share a one night stand which at some point becomes a. bit was only after learning that a song should slept with both of them at the women decided to go to the police that proved to turning point both phone wiki leaks and for julian assange it was when this story took a very different. women went to the police. once there to report a rape they report they wanted to encourage him to have an h.r. vito's because they've had sex with him unprotected and were concerned about but.
5:31 am
so there was no like actual rape right there was no violence there although all the newspapers afterwards they were saying rape allegations rape allegations there was no actual rape there was this is this miss this is this is exactly this is that was the aim of the whole exercise to start hearing the word rape in connection with julian assange. destination and wiki leaks in our ancient israel to links in the round and you just saw me in there with a rape allegation only a shrink easing is really more news in the renomination. in many people's minds there's something suspicious about him and i left because he hasn't and he's run away from. i think it would have been better had he gone to sweden because i think he needed his opportunity to clear his name but. at the same time i completely understand why he didn't see the problem in sweden who it's not a country where. in addition to the media climate has been set up in sweden.
5:32 am
i think that if. julian went to sweden at that point he would have been extradited he was often like mocked in the prez and people will say ah he just wants to know as he doesn't want to face the music in sweden and so on and then said he's paranoid but i think from today's perspective we don't really know now what the that unites us is really after him and i think he was. the big thing that i think cruelly undermined the public support for julian was a swedish case obviously you would find the newspapers of high repute. television stations to doing julian in and became gratuitous.
5:33 am
i think to be fair to say the mainstream media never really liked chile and. they didn't really like to him because his model publishing was a threat to their existence. and there was a great deal of jealousy in the mainstream towards wiki leaks and tortuous own particular why i wanted to be more like all. the one the boss. when they wanted access to the commands they were then that this person simply says . no they cannot even do you know great that's a little note with respect. in the moment they collided with him they took the information he had. but then immediately let's say the next day you had
5:34 am
a hit piece in the new york times from bill keller he was the editor in chief at that time who described him as a bag lazy. he came immediately something about his character up. there i think that is a betrayal it's a betrayal of principle. what do you think of the allegations that julian assange geez and the direct quote from the new york times is that he's a narcissist with an outsized view of his own of origins and that he has no interest in monday matters like personal hygiene. really. i can't think of another journalist or publisher who has won a major international journalist wards. and for whom media
5:35 am
organizations have complained about whether his socks were dirty or hadn't washed here i mean really. i wonder whether any single human being has been subjected to about never most news. in the parts and was at school. in 20 a little in a british court released a social bill on condition that he didn't leave the country. he was also required to remain at the country house owned by a close friend the british journalist form smith. i'm now sitting in a chair morning. sort of house that is the products of
5:36 am
wealth that my silence has generated for hundreds of years my family moved here in 17 months to find. fortunate. to have that response when she took off her. own smee is an investing at the journalist and that's why our journalist. who kindly offered these may be a secure place to be the place from letter to publications with me mate. p.c.'s a nexus. if you will say just one country yes it's always a bit safer to be much much safer i was here and no one knew i was here but as far as a few we can ground in these cases because it's about as good as. we can make space if we turn this into the office for quite a lot so you would have come in here and you to found people who working on computers bits of paper printouts everywhere running around with these little disks
5:37 am
and things like this so that involved having julian it had involves having. the people wept for him and involved having everybody who wanted to interview him but this was the main office this was going to keep things head coach this. is the place where. a lot of word later down the road sosa came to happen but i would say that the big fear. the big publications for. cable gates they were conducted. wireless jordan was in house arrest and having them all. because it was so secret you'd be herons you see people working on the computers and you know i wouldn't like office because it was you know you you know you'd be looked at and they'd wonder you think oh gosh what a silly question washed off well there you don't tell me if i want to tell me. i
5:38 am
saw them release the afghan war logs i saw them working on the diplomatic. and i saw them working on some stuff that came off the woods when they were here is interesting. to stop organizations like working. on the with these isn't going to be the end of it even if we do use disappears which is no sign that it will. become a sort of guerrilla organization for freedom of speech. on the 1st the judy it was in the x. drawn and the c. . the morning off that he went to that and the 6 i read in the news and realized a lot just lost my bail money and. that is the school and. greg was. listening to a lot. of
5:39 am
this is there could during the embassy. leave maybe 7 gives them by sees only the one of the 2 flat. so what you're looking. at the need all the balcony that the embassy which in fact was. julien's the room in the last. 5 yes. i did so stay found wiki leaks he's refusing to leave the ecuadorian embassy in london is expected to make his last public comment the soft name. i. think. we knew each. before he came to them i say. basically the possibility
5:40 am
of protecting him arrives from that friendship i want. to. lead. people said yes. this is him 30. percent so free during the embassy and so through the small bits of flight. 300. can turn into one sort. of the room. from. their building is surrounded by high buildings
5:41 am
which is just not allowed. to come into them but julian compared ceased state of the embassy. to believing being a space ship because he was subject to only a few feet. and he never saw sunlight he didn't have dental and medical they were huge challenges. first years he was constantly under surveillance their hands and when you were in the embassy you could cost them the people outside with the speaking on walkie talkie that was nearly no corner in the embassy where you watched. buildings. all that's on. base was the most. sort of
5:42 am
a place in the wall for many of us. julian assange to continue to run we can make sure in his day at the ecuadorian embassy well within its walls many new publications and revelations came to light the highest profile exposing is probably a period in 2016 the year in which a new president was to be elected in the usa. by the demick no certainly no borders and islam to nationalities. has emerged we caught up with the we don't look back seeing the whole world needs to. judge and. come in
5:43 am
a crisis like this the same things. we can do better we should do better. everyone is contributing your own way but we also know that this crisis not go on forever the challenges created with the response has been masked so many good people are helping us. it makes us feel very proud that we're in it together. during the vietnam war u.s. forces also bomb to neighboring laos it was a secret war. and for years the american people did not know. how much it is officially the must have rebounded country per capita in appalling human history millions of unexploded bombs still in danger lives in this small agricultural
5:44 am
country jordyn wieber went on to another topic that even today kids in laos full victims of bombs dropped decades ago is the u.s. making amends for that tragedy and what help to the people need in that little land of mines. seemed wrong. but all. just don't call. me old yet to say proud these days to come to advocate and engagement equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground.
5:45 am
believes the. trouble. came from the fact that he put into the body to maine. one of the d.n.c. leaks basically. e-mails from democrats. how the democrats are. trying. to present. that was something that i think the american public is really important about wiki leaks is that the russian government has engaged in espionage against
5:46 am
america and then they have that information. wiki leaks. of a $2.00 and. d.c. leaks and you know means which. is to convince us that this information was from russia well you know i don't. know whether it was from russia. leaks julian hasn't told me it was an. old. when they revealed those dirtiest facts about hillary. and the hole he put christie behind it and so want everyone he
5:47 am
was saying yah but it's not so bad but when she lost the election everybody said like oh my god this was the reason why it happened because they needed some explanation. the reception of those cables was pretty nasty i think it did there was even this outrage. and these hate make him stop making stuff make a songe stop he came out of the embassy silence he got to keep. when the years went by his situation became more difficult and difficult the pressure because bigger and bigger and then the government changed in ecuador i think the situation became pretty crazy. there was an election in ecuador. marriner lenin became president.
5:48 am
he was a great supporter of america still the. government decided to shift. going on foreign policy. and decided to have the further relationship he can states to you know was an obstacle for dot from us he started it. could release actually other sites not just the records local as you could see of this. prebuttal structure but a political belief it was healed but it must be. but. she has to show so she said this will be able to persuade us no it is not for them or a no government was to tell us that they had to get rid of him and. turned his life. hell. kind of thing away lawyers searching businesses. installing cameras in every
5:49 am
room and private meetings had to be holding the torah not supplying toilet. supplying toilet paper just. for getting some of this paper. for getting to bring forgetting to bring. if they forgot to bring food. is. related to. go i have to ask this because according to the security firm employees who are hired by the government julian was an extremely difficult guest himself. argued with the embassy staff a lot the neglected personal hygiene often left his bathroom and small kitchen in the mass. this is in the 18 months of the
5:50 am
government you're talking about that's right. why is it that none of that for the preceeding 60 years. did it change personalities all of a sudden. feces on the wall. and. they wanted to have proof and reasons. to take away his asylum which is really an international humanitarian scandal if. you're going to see this is. the signal that science is. deemed.
5:51 am
this was the 1st time. i could really see the. like i was shocked. back to 2000 and. 4. into 3. months of torture absurdities or. several. years where. god.
5:52 am
was. the united states immediately filed an extradition request with u.k. but it could not be considered until julian assange himself in the months in prison for breaching the terms of his home detention and 2012. the wiki leaks founder was sent to belmarsh prison just outside london. prison are . high security maximum security prison. murderers and terrorists. belmarsh prison is said to be
5:53 am
a worse place even than guantanamo. he is. there nodded the right fraternizing with all the person knows. he told me that when he sees people go past his cell he wishes he wished he could scream. i saw those leaked media was great he appears to have a lot lost a lot of weight. when i saw that i really started crying because when you know someone very well and see him in this position. i'm not allowed to hand him anything the only way of communicating with the outside world is to him to save their heads. we were not sure if he wanted to communicate with journalists but here's
5:54 am
a letter we have just received from belmarsh prison and it's from jill and a songe as it says here on the back. that letter reveals despair and frustration as the trial draws closer the wiki leaks founder says he has no internet or telephone nexus which seriously hinders his ability to prepare his own defense 100 he has nothing much to do except walk thousands of laps per day around the cell. it's very distressing to see someone you have worked with and who is an old friend. in such peril. and. to. think that they may not come out of it is very upsetting.
5:55 am
the charges that the u.s. government have raised against julian to extradite and have shifted. they called him a hacker and said that he had assisted manning in securing the information that manning wanted. bradley manning was a handyman who was in the armed forces and clearly was shocked by what was going on around him and. bradley manning now chelsea manning. was the original whistleblower who gave wiki leaks them most important information we ask on war logs the film from a helicopter or uses a generous pension and. the diplomatic papers all came from bradley manning. the way the u.s. ministry of justice sees it julian
5:56 am
a stanch didn't just receive information from an informant which would not constitute a crime journalist do have the right to acquire information from sources even if it is classified the american government claims that all sounds conspired with private manning who helped him access classified information intending to harm the united states. the u.s. hopes to prove that the sound is a spy not a journalist. the charges they are absolutely applicable. to the times the other journalism or media publications. during a sound being a publisher is put in prison for being a publisher for no other reason than being a publisher. they have no voice. there are no rules to the game. is free in turn a list in the united states should feel aku to
5:57 am
a scene in running down the spine. at the charges that have been leveled against this publisher. because they could be next. dear julian. you are one of the most bravest person i know and this sentence that you'll get repeated often courage is contagious it was really true. that's the reason for great movements and draws you'll have a 1000000 or so i would think of people. support and understand but there is. a wider issue at stake he is the lone he is not alone. there are a large number of people who value the contribution as main party and
5:58 am
public interest. i've remembered you today i went into another's famous when you were relatively free and i remember that you were just you know carrying his legal back. and having him very humble i. would look forward to a day where he's free and not being honest or. not being chased around the world by the americans. i hope that we can get you out of there. if you will be sitting next to us somewhere nice something water by deceit these would be like just just a bad memory or. her .
5:59 am
revel to thank you for. problem drugs don't always come from unscrupulous dealers but from pharmacies to in every state in the united states we see me very sharp increase in the number of people seeking treatment for addiction to prescription opioids invited america under the banner of medicine persisted with the pain but instead of trying to wean him off though she just goes after dose after dose after dose and really became his
6:00 am
