Assange says Wikileaks has not gone far enough. Says US shadow state is more than a cold war relic, and is expanding #FODI #infosec #antisec
@JLLLOW
A transnational shadow state has developed recently that is not simply a Cold War relic (cites Dana Priest's Top Secret America) #FODI

#FODI "Visa Mastercrd Paypal Bnk of America blockade has wiped out 95% income. In your wallet is an instrument of unstatd US foreign policy"

Asher Wolf @Asher_Wolf
#Assange is correct: ever increasing number of whistleblower and leak sites prove punitive action against #Manning is not a deterrent #FODI
💧Mary Kostakidis @MaryKostakidis
#FODI "extremely abusive treatment of Bradley Manning designed to scare others. But he has set an example - you can achieve change".
