As Rumors Swirl, UN Expert Warns Extraditing Julian Assange to US Would Violate Human Rights Protections

Jessica Corbett, staff writer

While Ecuador denies plans to revoke Julian Assange's political asylum, a top United Nations human rights official has vowed to investigate fresh rumors, noting that if the WikiLeaks founder is expelled from the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, he likely would be arrested by British authorities and extradited to the United States.

Not wise to expose the war crimes of the USA. We are experts in assassinations,torture,rendition,as well as exporters of weapons to foment conflict. War is our only foreign policy. Much profit in militarism.

Here is a version of American government that is a five minute creation. Eliminate federal legislature, most judicial, and much of the executive.
States take over power. The fed sends tax money to the states according to population. States take care of their own for the most part. The fed could tax the states for military spending, and not much more.
The states pass their laws, and as residents, your state law follows you around the country. Laws are passed by voter referendum.
Anyway, you can see where I am headed with this, but it needs checks and balances just as our national government did.

Maybe they will let us have Assange for a few days so we can have a heroes parade before they cut off his head.

Including evidence of unequivocal, video, evidence of the murders of innocent people in Iraq. No wonder Julian is an anathema to the Amerikan, war criminals who know they are guilty as hell.
