ZeroHedge:"Edward Snowden: Assange Arrest "Dark Moment For Press Freedom" - One For "The History Books"

By Tyler Durden

“Assange's critics may cheer, but this is a dark moment for press freedom,” NSA whistleblower and leaker Edward Snowden wrote on Twitter in reaction to seeing WikiLeaks' Julian Assange dragged by UK police from his seven year asylum captivity at the Ecuadorian embassy in London on Thursday. 

A bearded, disheveled-looking Assange was filmed being roughly escorted out of the embassy by British police and loaded into a police van. Assange can be seen shouting:

"The UK must resist this attempt by the Trump administration."

The arrest came, as WikiLeaks predicted, a mere days after the organization was tipped off that Ecuador was preparing to swiftly end Assange's asylum and hand him over the UK authorities, after which it's further believed the WikiLeaks founder will be extradited to the United States

As we reported Assange's lawyer has confirmed that he was arrested not solely on charges stemming from skipping bail in the UK, but in connection with an extradition request from the US.

Snowden tweeted that the dramatic images of UK authorities dragging Assange out of the embasy were a “dark moment for press freedom.”

He further commented that a publisher of “award-winning journalism” being arrested and thrown into a security van would “end up in the history books.""

This really is a very dark moment press freedom indeed, for any freedom.  I wonder if Kim Dotcom will be next in their sights. 

Anyone that has a recognizable internet profile who defies tptb's narrative shall be cast out.

All (legitimate/moral) whistleblowers shall be treated as traitors and dealt with.

What is up is down.

Their order our chaos.

And only if we let them.
