Global crackdown on truth: WikiLeaks’ Assange goes into hiding

‘Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has gone into hiding, fearful of arrest by U.S. authorities, an Icelandic parliamentarian confirmed Friday. “He’s just been following events in the U.S., and State Department press conferences and so forth, and they have been trying to get hold of him,” Birgitta Jonsdottir, a close supporter of Assange in the Icelandic Parliament, said… Jonsdottir said the Icelandic Parliament last night “unanimously” passed legislation that would create an “international safe haven” for national security whistleblowers.’
