Assange blasts UK government

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange lashed out at the UK government over Twitter on Friday after Britain’s official UN account (UK Mission to the United Nations) tweeted “A free and independent media fulfils a vital role in holding the powerful to account and giving a voice to the powerless,” with a link to a puff piece waxing eloquent over the UK’s commitment to free speech.

      The United Nations were, of course, the brainchild of FDR, who was aided in pursuit of this project during WW2 by Sumner Welles (whose career ended in disgrace after he propositioned an African American gentleman on the Presidential train), Harry Hopkins (who met with Josef Stalin in Moscow way before either Winston Churchill or FDR himself, and who offered the Sovet Union aid way before America was even in the war) and the one and only Alger Hiss.
