CIA Director Mike Pompeo: "What did I just say?"
Julian Assange: Global traitor or legitimate publisher?
He's a grave danger who is not worth thinking about, according to Mike Pompeo.

"... political persecution masquerading as law enforcement"
The mainstream corporate media (whose self-muzzling is the reason for the rise of whistle-blowing and crazy bloggers) don't seem to find this issue particularly newsworthy. Consequently, after all these years, just mention Wikileaks to anyone with white hair (in my experience) and you'll hear, "You know, he's a sex offender!"
Allegedly (with charges long since withdrawn), but so is Harvey Weinstein, and people still appreciate his movies.
Meanwhile, the media do only what they are commissioned to do, neither a jot nor a tittle more.
April 2017: According to Central Intelligence Agency Director Mike Pompeo, when speaking to and of the CIA he can't say enough good about them:
When denigrating the activities of Assange and Snowden, however, he can't find a single redeeming merit. And, as low as they are, they don't even qualify as decent whistleblowers because:
Does Pompeo even know what a whistle is? Blow into one and you'll hear how discreet it is.
Seemingly on a roll, he strangely then quotes The Intercept as saying:
So is he concerned ... or is he not?
Pompeo doesn't seem aware of his own contradictions -- or does he cynically, like the consummate politician he is, bank on a lack of awareness in his audience?
Assange "is a fraud" he continues:
Oops again. He decried inaccurate movie depictions of the CIA (read the speech), and then used The Wizard of Oz to describe Assange -- and inadvertently himself, a Kansan.
Ahhhh ... according to the BBC he routinely changes gears when necessary to support his own career aims:
Pompeo teaches Sunday School kids with that mouth.
When he comes to the end of his road, will he say, as Billy Graham allegedly did, that [...] he wished he had not become as involved in politics [and]
Ah well, Billy and Mike and the CIA know who and what they are, and it appears that, although the CIA may have enjoyed Pompeo's glowing praise of them, they were not in the least taken in by it:
In other words: if he fibbed about us, he'll fib to us.
