Is the secretive Julian Assange going to disappear with another secret?

There is quite a lot of evidence out there, albeit of a circumstantial nature, to more than suggest that 9/11 was an inside job. That's right an "inside job" and without it, there would be have been no war in Afghanistan or in Iraq. Well, at least, not until the men on the inside had come up with another pretext. Anyway, there we were watching 'Oil, Smoke and Mirrors and it is not that the students didn't get the point, that they didn't take it all in, and it is not as if they weren't aware of the implications of what they were seeing and hearing. Nevertheless, the sun had its' hat on outside and we can be pretty sure that an hour or so after class some of them were sitting in Munich's 'English Gardens', enjoying the good weather, the real news forgotten and life goes on. Not that important, after all, is it?

Anyway, some news from today's 'Guardian': "American officials are searching for Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks  in an attempt to pressure him not to publish thousands of confidential and potentially hugely embarrassing diplomatic cables that offer unfiltered assessments of Middle East governments and leaders." With the 'Daily Beast', the newspaper that the 'Guardian' got the story from saying that "given the contents of the cables, the feds have good reason to be concerned." "We'd like to know where he is; we'd like his cooperation in this," one US official said of Assange, who apparently has no fixed address. "No fixed address" and if the whole of the American government, the Pentagon and the CIA wanted my "cooperation", I would certainly consider the hobo option. All the more so if, like Julian, I was in possession of information which, according to the well-known "Pentagon Papers" whistleblower, Daniel Ellsberg, shows that the United States is "supporting and facilitating dictators and corrupt and murderous governments," and are quite aware of their nature." No, never, really, what a surprise!

Well, it might just be that Julian's secretive life is just about to culminate in a mysterious disappearance. However, it might just be that he will publish and prove what the less myopic among us have known for a long time. However, a little birdie told me that Washington has another card up its sleeve should that happen. Yes, they are working on a great big sunshine making machine and when the real news appears, we will either all be sitting enjoying the sun or too interested in getting out to enjoy it to bother too much about a dose of reality. Still, the few who might be interested in the truth, can click on the Wikileaks website and who knows maybe, maybe, lying in the English Gardens and watching all the pretty girls or/and boys go by, or sitting in front of that big open air screen and watching Wayne Rooney score England's winner, and ruminating on more important things are not mutually exclusive.
