One minute there is a (suspicious) warrant for Julian arrest the next minute the charges are dropped.

It’s starting to sound like a page right out of the book - The Girl who played with fire.

I wonder how long before they try and arrest him for murder or terrorist charges?

Not going to happen and I don't see how they can charge him for terrorist charges? He is just a whistle blower like anyone else. He is too famous/known now for any intelligence service to try and take him out of the picture.

Do whatever you want to do man.

The USA have already announced that he will likely face charges there for leaking the Afgan War Docs. If they issued a warrant for him its going to get a lot harder for him to move around the world. You've got to respect the man and his mantra, but it does feel like a ticking time bomb...

Slightly OT, there was an article on NZHerald about a, which was setup to allow access to Thai related documents from within Thailand where Wikileaks is supposedly blocked (although the Government claims otherwise). Not really news worthy in any sense though. One wonders how long before a lot more copycat sites pop up piggy backing on Wikileaks reach.

DataCraft: One minute there is a (suspicious) warrant for Julian arrest the next minute the charges are dropped.

This is the first shot on a likely campaign of death by a thousand cuts. The idea will be to put stress on him. Make him they have done to Fidel Castro (Cuba) and Hugo Chavez (Venezuela)  and many, many others in the past. The paranoid target person then does 'odd' things that feed back into the campaign to destroy his credibility. The paranoid person withfraws into a space they think is secure and relies on trusted associates....a group that will by now almost certainly have been infiltrated..or soon will be.  More pressure. More stress. More isolation.  

At the same time, the seed is sown in the public mind that there is a question mark over this guy. Not too sure about him. Those two women said stuff. Where there's smoke there's fire, right? Might not lift too many fingers to help him out next time he gets in a (programmed in) scrape. 

The warrant itself may have been enough to get him on one of those "no-fly" lists...and when he applies for visas he will be declined....and they don't have to give a reason. 

This is just the start. 

It's been done many times before. 

The broad mass of the population fall for it every time. I don't know of a single case where it hasn't worked. Most people are both ignorant...and continue to trust the media that feeds them this garbage based on press releases from people who know how to play the media like dupes to run their campaigns. 

It's called PsyOps. Pyschological Operations. It brought you the Iraq War and WMD and mushroom clouds.....and much, much more.

@Linuxluver -

I think in the past those tactics worked - but the internet really has changed everything no longer are the masses so reliant on the big media sources. Information is power and they are slowly loosing control of it.
