    Assange interview: ‘Prism is beyond the worst nightmares of Orwell’

    Julian Assange, the co-founder of the famous WikiLeaks website that exposed war crimes committed by US troops in Iraq, has talked about his worst disappointments, US total surveillance and the future of NSA leaker Edward Snowden in an interview to the UK’s Daily Mail.

    The whistleblower said his biggest achievement was “going head to head with the US State Department, the Pentagon, the White House, the FBI and CIA and winning.” “WikiLeaks hasn’t destroyed any of its publications or stopped publishing as they demanded. In terms of results, helping move the internet from a politically apathetic space to a politically engaged one,” he confessed.

    Mr. Assange also said that some media were circulating libel against him. Among others, he was called a CIA spy, a Mossad agent, a Hezbollah catspaw, an agent of George Soros, and…even a cat-torturer. “A book claimed I was so mean to someone's pet cat when I visited their flat that I induced feline psychosis,” he told the Daily Mail.

    Speaking about US secret surveillance program Prism and the CIA man who revealed it, the top WikiLeaker said he believed it to be another proof of the Western world’s transition to a surveillance dystopia.

    “Prism is beyond the worst nightmares of Orwell and the greatest fantasies of the Stasi. Obama has taken on what Bush began and decided to ‘do it properly’. Snowden is a hero who stands accused of everything from spying for the Chinese to being rude to his neighbours,” he concluded.

    The WikiLeak’s co-founder is accused by Sweden of sexual assault and harassment he allegedly committed in 2010. The UK government officially intends to extradite him to Sweden, which is easier said than done because the 41-year-old has taken cover at the Ecuadorian embassy in London and has been given political asylum.
