The American government wants to burn Julian Assange at the stake.
I ask President Obama to do the right thing, the United States must renounce its witch hunt against WikiLeaks.
Assange has been accused of rape and molestation. The UK Supreme Court ruled that he should be extradited to Sweden
to face trial for questioning, which is why Assange is currently seeking political asylum at the Ecuadorean embassy. (CORRECTION: Assange is not currently facing a trial.)
If Bradley Manning did as he is accused, he is a hero and one of the world's foremost political prisoners.
Manning has been held since May of 2010.
