I guess these past 12 years or so have basically thrown out all legal statutes and the goverment can do whatever it damn well pleases. very sad and frightening.

Um, since when does the State Department decide what’s legal and what is not?

And the world watches. If you really want to police the world, you might want to familiarize yourselves with the law outside “the center of the known universe.”

Assange is not currently in the US. He was not in the US recently. He did not break US law while in the US. He is not a US citizen. Why is this difficult for Liberman et. all to understand?
