The magician, while using some cleaver patter, always directs your attention elsewhere - away from where he’s performing the trick. Assange has most of you so focused on the horrifying events the trick is never revealed. Hidden is the fact that the insurgents are only pretending to be innocent civilians! Regardless, you all seem to be enjoying the show.

To Bill_Cromer,

After reading your comment on here thought I'd say you seem quite astute in the way you spin what Assange is doing.
However... you give yourself away as the true magician here, by mentioning how we " all seem to be enjoying the show. "
Only a sick and deranged person would say theirs enjoyment in watching, and knowing of this outrageous, atrocity !
You mean to say the two Reuters journalist that are shown being killed in Cold-Blood are to be considered " insurgents " as well !?... not to mention the children that were too !!!
You are the one who is pretending, Sir !
To make lame-ass excuses for what I'm sure you nothing about, other than what your told by those who wish to control You !
Too many citizens of this nation are confused about the essance of the meaning on what makes this country different from others... That being the ability to have " Free Will ! "... Not... what I'm sure you would say... " Free~Dumb ! "
Now be a good-boy, and do as your told !
You Fool...
