- There exists a solid legal strategy based on precedence and experience (!)
Half of the reason for this is because calling the coach of your competitor to tell him of your whole line up and strategy is the best way to loose the Champions League Final or The Superbowl.
The other half of it is simply because a few good women and men are fighting the biggest baddest army of asshats the world has ever seen. Their wallets are deep and they can stoop so low that... call Guinness Book of...
That takes care why you dont hear much about legal strategy. What about PR and campaigns? Since Colvin left there is lack of skills and no time - in that dept. Additionally some time in the past it was decided (cont.)
Of course they did not. It was a technical hearing, not a bail hearing. Bail would have been applied for at the proper time. Now, feel lucky that we learnt from Day 1 that the extradit. judge is a corrupt crook too.
There are several reasons, main of which is that they have isolated him almost completely. The second is that Mr. Assange is sick. What legal or support team would advise their client to talk while reduced? Non! Sound strategy
What expert have you ever heard advise that a client indited for everything under the sun to chit chat publicly when every word he says can be used by the governments trying to break him? Dont be silly now.
We have heard from Assange from his replies to people around the world. Some of it very good and some maybe a danger to future tactics and attacks from the UK/US gov and their trained spies and narrative spinners.
The 1st that happened was that we heard from Assange. Through videos and photos taken by another "prisoner". Anyone with a smidgen of experience will tell you that he was likely the target of a CIA direct action with an A++ result.
Mr. Assange is now isolated between 22 and 23 hours per day. He interacts with almost no one, has no computer, news, legal databases or contact with US lawyers. When he every now and then is let speak to someone, it should lawyers...
... family and friends. He has little time and a lot to do. So does his reps. I for one do not expect them to inform me, I would be horrified if they spent more than 15 minutes talking to me. A waste of time given the task they face.
Supporters question things. Thats good, they are a resource and an extension of the hive mind that will save Mr. Assange in the end. It would seem some ardent supporters, especially those connected to a particular (cont..)
Take a chill pill & help them get answers, and then go right back to defending Mr. Assange. Please?
Another reason why I beg you to chill and not harass: A crowd of a few dozen supporters with no previous experience dealing with state actors, sub contractors and their former CIA master minds - is sooooo easy to (cont.)
There are literally dozens of reasons why. Main one being manpower and the staggering workload that they have. They have budget constraints too. Besides, should they stay on Twitter all day or serve their beneficiaries.
It does not mean they are hiding something, it only means that they are either focused and/or overworked. Supporting them should be our main concern, IMHO and very personal opinion.
When they are able to it they will probably update their website descriptions about donations, because they like you, will want to ooze trust to increase donations. IMHO, you can expect to happen in a short few weeks.
If and when they find the time they should send out newsletters to supporters signing up. Unless they already do. (I get all the press releases and it helps a lot but treating your donors as clients is a thought too, no?)
