Kevin Gosztola accounts for the role of U.S. national security agencies in targeting Julian Assange and WikiLeaks. He describes what is known about the CIA and the FBI’s roles in the prosecution. Through several examples, he shows the extensive lengths that those in the shadow government have gone to instill paranoia and fear among those in Assange’s inner circle, who represent him publicly and legally, and those who campaign for his freedom.
