As Gizmodo reported earlier, Julian Assange appeared ready to make good on a promise to extradite himself to the United States — a country which has not publicly charged him with any crimes — following clemency for Chelsea Manning. Less than 24 hours later, Wikileaks's editor-in-chief is weaselling out of a deal no one asked him to make.
The news that President Obama has commuted Chelsea Manning's sentence — with her release slated for May of this year instead of 2045 — is a huge relief to many. A major exception to that is Julian Assange, who managed to trip on his own dick in a big way.
After Fox News aired an interview between motorcycle-wanter Sean Hannity and animal costume-enthusiast Julian Assange, former US vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin took to Twitter and Facebook to apologise to the Wikileaks founder. She also recommended her fans check out Oliver Stone's Snowden, calling the film "quite enlightening".
After getting his internet privileges taken away by the Ecuadoran government in October, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange is evidently bored. Currently in exile from the United States and facing rape charges in Europe, without internet, Assange has found a better way to pass the time: Playing dress-up with his kitty cat.
