Source: Associated Press


22 minutes ago

QUITO, Ecuador (AP) — Ecuador’s president says Britain has provided sufficient guarantees for Julian Assange to leave his government’s embassy in London, where the WikiLeaks founder has been living under asylum since 2012.

Lenin Moreno said in a radio interview Thursday said his government had received written assurances from the U.K. government not to extradite the Australian activist to any country where he would face the death penalty.

Moreno didn’t say he would force Assange out, but said Assange’s legal team is considering its next steps.

Assange has long maintained the he faces charges under seal in the U.S for revealing highly sensitive government information on his website.

1. If I were him, I would have become the housekeeper

or the cook. I would have worked in the gardens and made myself useful. Everyday.

I would have been so grateful to be sheltered that I would have traded any skills I had to say thank you.

And I sure wouldn't have been accused of not cleaning out the cat litter.

There's something wrong with that man - he didn't get it. But I guess he will.........

3. So Now He's Free

to walk the streets of London?

Wonder what device the Russians will use to inflict death. Shaving cream, toothpaste, mouth wash...

or just a simple prick of a needle while he is entering or exiting a cab?

Maybe someone could start a betting pool.

6. It will as likely be a CIA hit squad that sweeps him up first.

They want him in person to settle a bunch of old scores. A quick if painful death would be too soon for that.

4. Abusing the hospitality of your host

by using their embassy as a base from which to conduct espionage operations was probably not the best idea, if he wanted to stay there long term. Maybe he didn't figure his little alliance would ever be exposed.

7. If I were him I wouldn't worry about an American indictment

I'd be worrying about how and where Putin is going to strike.

9. I'm hoping he's going to be extradited to the US under a guarantee of "no death penalty."

Just life in prison with Don, Jr., as his bunkie.
