Thanks for the link. I generally like Charles Hughes Smith, and he's right on the money here!

I love this part:

"Employees of state entities such as Ellsberg, Manning and Snowden are bound by vows of secrecy and threatened by the promise of severe punishment. Outsiders such as Assange are even further beyond the pale because they can't be accused of being traitors, as they never took the vows of secrecy required by the Deep State."

The most masterful irony.

It sounds like truth to me. What makes you say it's irony?

People like Assange who are less culpable are even further beyond the pale.

So you think it should have been kept secret that our government was illegally spying on us?
