Edward Snowden was hunted, pushed into exile, all for doing something that authorities and even the people going after him tacitly admitted was a vital public good. jacobinmag.com/2020/09/edward- twitter.com/sunraysunray/statu

Thank you @joerogan and @snowden for defending Julian against this abusive prosecution and explaining why everyone who cares about a free society should too, as a matter of principle.

Re When I wrote this line on the third page of PERMANENT RECORD, I never imagined the government would underline it with a lawsuit on the very first day of publication:

Re Ellsberg called the assertions of the US govt "highly cynical."

Were any of [alleged exposed individuals] subject to what State Department claimed - death, violent harm or incarceration? "Isn’t the answer no? Did one of them suffer the carrying out of these threats?" twitter.com/kgosztola/status/1

Re James Lewis: All fault of American government for letting Assange publish?

Ellsberg said they bear heavy responsibility and then noted fortunately no one was harmed.

He was told there would be blood on his hands. Those critics were wrong. twitter.com/kgosztola/status/1

Re Ellsberg said, "I have no doubt that Julian would have removed those names."

State Department and Pentagon, according to Ellsberg, chose to "preserve possibility of charging Mr. Assange with precisely the charges you’ve identified rather than take these steps to protect them." twitter.com/kgosztola/status/1

Re Ellsberg: Assange withheld 15,000 files from Afghan papers. Requested help with redactions from State Dept and Pentagon. Both State Dept and Pentagon could've helped protect names. twitter.com/kgosztola/status/1

Re Ellsberg testified on widely held belief by people who want to criticize Snowden, Manning, or Assange. They don't seem to want to criticize me so "they make a distinction which in my view is entirely misleading." twitter.com/kgosztola/status/1

Re Ellsberg said he published the name of someone he knew, a clandestine CIA police officer. Their identity was well-known in South Vietnam. The Intelligence Identities Protection Act wouldn't have excused him for putting it out, but he did not want to redact a single word. twitter.com/kgosztola/status/1

Re Ellsberg: "I did not get a fair trial despite a very intelligent and conscientious judge." No one since his case has had a fair trial.

"Julian Assange could not get a remotely fair trial under those charges in the United States." twitter.com/kgosztola/status/1

Re Ellsberg shared how he was stunned that evidence of torture, deaths squads, and other significant corruption was in material classified below top secret level. Suggested officials no longer regarded these acts as "sensitive." twitter.com/kgosztola/status/1

Re Ellsberg distinguished the classification level of the documents Assange and WikiLeaks published. Pentagon Papers were top secret while the material on Iraq, Afghanistan, Guantanamo, and US diplomacy was no higher than secret. twitter.com/kgosztola/status/1

Re Ellsberg on WikiLeaks revelations: "Like the Pentagon Papers, had the capability of informing the public that they had been seriously misled about the nature of the war, the progress of the war, and the likelihood that it would end successfully, if at all." twitter.com/kgosztola/status/1

Daniel Ellsberg - known for leaking the Pentagon Papers in 1971, revealing the Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy and Johnson administrations had misled the public - is about to give evidence in Julian Assange’s extradition hearing. He can be heard but not seen by the court. twitter.com/CourtNewsUK/status

Watch: @joerogan speaking to @snowden on : "The US govt is trying to extradite & put him in prison for the rest of his life..for work that won awards in every country..This could all be made to go away if AG William Barr dropped the charges - & he should"

Each day Julian is woken at 5am, handcuffed, put in holding cells, stripped naked and x-rayed. He's transported 1.5h each way in what feels like a vertical coffin in a claustrophobic van. He's in a glass box at the back of court from where he can't consult his lawyers properly.

Stella Moris: Today I'm launching a crowdjustice campaign to free Julian.

Our children need their father back. Please help me make that happen.
