Julian Assange is a political prisoner worn down by a rigged judicial system that will never stop seeking to destroy him 

The WikiLeaks founder is so put upon that I hardly recognized him at first this week. The unrelenting cruelty that the US and Britain are inflicting on him for exposing their war crimes is shameful.

At the High Court in London this week, the United States dealt yet another blow to Julian Assange, the journalist and founder of WikiLeaks who continues to languish in a maximum-security prison.

I have covered Assange’s extradition hearings from the start and attended his High Court hearing this week remotely.

The court ruled in favor of the United States, allowing it to appeal a judge’s decision not to extradite Assange, on all of the five grounds it sought.

Originally, the United States had only been given permission on three out of five grounds. Among them were empty assurances not to place Assange under Special Administrative Measures or SAMs (a nice way of saying torture) ??– which it could withdraw at any time if Assange were to “misbehave.”
