My Thread on why Julian #Assange is not a journalist but a online activists!
Julian #Assange is a 47 year old #Australian born men who founded #WikiLeaks in the year of 4 October in 2006 in #Iceland, He build the website with a other guy who resigned, for one purpose only! To expose and to publish government secret intelligence documents.
#Wikileaks who got documents of "Bradley Manning" who was arrested in may 2010 in Iraq for the leaking of classified documents of the United states in #Iraq, gave the thousands of military documents through a encrypted message platform to Julian #Assange, to expose war crimes. 1/
The thousands of Documents leaked from "Bradley Manning" to #WikiLeaks through Julian #Assange what contained the Names of hundreds of US soldiers, Strategy methods, vehicles positions, tracking methods, and even frequency signals of calls to military bases, and videos 2/
The most popular leaked "Document" in the leaks was one single video of Two Apache helicopter killing a journalist and civilians, who military thought the camera and tripod was a RPG launcher weapon in #Iraqi suburb of New #Baghdad. 3/
When #WikiLeaks had the thousands of leaked military documents it could not figure what to do with them! The #US knew after the arrest of "Bradley #Manning" that #Assange had the documents and asked Jullian Assange to go through them carefully and redact names and methods 4/
But Julian #Assange had not planned to have Thousands of the documents leaked from Bradley Manning. And instead as a "Journalists" would do, go through them one by one and redact them according to Journalism handbook, instead asked money from the #US to be precise 500.000 USD 5/
To preform the work as a "Journalist" to go through the thousands of leaked military documents, instead Julian #Assange asked extortion for money or else he would publish the Thousands of military documents to the #WikiLeaks website un-redacted to the world to see. 6/
Then the #US refused to pay Julian #Assange the 500.000 dollars to go through the document, and #Wikileaks published all the leaked documents un-redacted what was done in a Activist matter then rather in journalistic way! "Lets publish it all without seeing them first" Julian 7/
The Snowden leaks were more professional in the matter he preformed the leaks! Edward #Snowden first contacted the media to preform the leaks and redact any methods and or names of any #US military personnel! Julian #Assange not, only wanted the money, as #WikiLeaks only wants 8/
#WikiLeaks have published the names and pictures, and living area of 9243 I.CE. and border patrol agents on their website. That is a thing a journalist never would do, but the work of a activist. Julian #Assange and Wikileaks as a whole are not "journalists". 9/
