In the post entitled, Julia Gillard Betrays Australians there is a video of Julian Assange asking questions of the Prime Minister, Julia Gillard, on the ABC television program Q&A.
In the video clip, Julia Gillard, denies having spoken with officials about Julian Assange. However what she didn’t tell us was that while she was rubbing hands with Washington dignitaries, her entourage of Australian government officials were doing the dirty work for her.
It’s been no secret that Julia Gillard dislikes Wikileaks and Julian Assange. Despite the fact that the Wikileaks Diplomatic Cables exposed horrors committed by despots in places like Tunisia, Libya and Egypt, they also exposed how her very own supporters, such as Mark Arbib, effectively acted as CIA assets and fed information to the US Government.
Now the Australian Greens want the answers.
The Greens have asked the Federal Government to state whether it knew about secret US charges against Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. Greens Senator Scott Ludlam has demanded that the Prime Minister comes clean about what she knows. He has also asked whether the PM will defend Julian Assange from extradition to the US.
The problem is however, Julia Gillard knows that nothing will prevent extradition to the US if Julian Assange is sent to Sweden. She can gleefully rub her hands clean as she sees an Australian citizen subject to the new wave of American Justice, the kind where the proverbial black bag is placed over ones head and the subject whisked away never to be seen again, or at best, facing multiple life sentences never to be released from jail.
Julia Gillard likes being cosy with the US. So much so that sacrificing Julian Assange is a win win situation for her. She dislikes Assange, so much so that she declared his work at Wikileaks illegal before the Australian Federal Police determined he had broken no Australian law. She dislikes Julian Assange because he embarrassed her and her Government for outing people within her own circle as sources of information about the machinations of government and her party to US diplomats (read: spies).
Julia Gillard is able to dispatch Julian Assange without even needing to lift a finger, all she needs to do is sit back and watch the UK extradite Julian Assange back to Sweden. If that happens his life will take a downward spiral as the US get’s it’s grubby paws on him from there.
It’s time for Julia Gillard to pick up the phone to the UK and demand our citizen back. She should demand the United Kingdom return Julian Assange to Australia and give him all the protections that an Australian citizen deserves from a rapidly ravenous United States of America.
Below is a video of an exchange between Julia Gillard and Julian Assange on Q&A from March 2011.
Will she intervene to protect Julian Assange, an Australian citizen? We hope so but we’re not holding our breath, as the only person Julia Gillard cares about is Julia Gillard.
