Obama 'must resign', Julian Assange says

Swedish prosecutor: No 'political pressure'

MADRID (AFP) - President President Barack Obama should resign if it can be shown that he approved spying by US diplomatic figures on UN officials, the founder of WikiLeaks said in an interview published Sunday.

"The whole chain of command who was aware of this order, and approved it, must resign if the US is to be seen to be a credible nation that obeys the rule of law. The order is so serious it may well have been put to the president for approval," Julian Assange told Spanish daily El Pais.

"Obama must answer what he knew about this illegal order and when. If he refuses to answer or there is evidence he approved of these actions, he must resign," he added during an Internet chat interview published online.

WikiLeaks threw US diplomacy into chaos when it started releasing more than 250,000 classified State Department cables on November 28, creating an international firestorm as American diplomats' private assessments of foreign leaders and politics have been publicly aired.

According to one of the documents, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton asked for UN personnel's telephones, emails, credit card details and frequent flier numbers.

The United States and other governments said the release of the documents broke their laws.

Assange gave the interview to El Pais on Saturday from an undisclosed location. The 39-year-old Australian is believed to be in Britain, and a report said he could be arrested this week.

To all the people bleating about the "deceit" the US diplomatic service has engaged in, you are woefully ignorant of the history of diplomats and diplomacy. Nearly ALL diplomats engage in a certain amount of obfuscation and gilding the lily, and have as long as diplomacy has existed. Regulus, the captured Roman general who was sent back from Carthage to obtain unfavorable terms of peace from Rome or die, was perhaps the last candid diplomat in human history - he went back to Carthage to die.

Julian Assange and the Tea Party reading from the same sheet. Amazing.

However, this is one of the things that makes me distrust the veracity of many of the more interesting Wikileaks cables. The Department of State has traditionally resisted being used as an infrastructure for intelligence agencies beyond the usual CIA station chief and other operatives under diplomatic cover. That non-CIA State Department people would take part in active amateur spying is literally incredible.

Quoting Jón Halvársson:
Congratulations to all the agencies attempting to keep Wikileaks down. Julian Assange is a prime example of what happens when someone finds themselves with too much power, and no freaking idea how to use it.

He is nothing more than an international terrorist, and the quicker the British Police arrest him and get him out of the limelight, over to the US and where he should be (in jail), the better.

You are gay FTP

WIKILEAKS organization nomination for Nobel Peace Prize for 2011 for bringing into the public domain the deceitful games the US has played in the world. Greater transparency will in the long term be a force for a more just and peaceful world.

I just can't wait to read the leaks relating to the cir[censored]st ances leading to both Gulf wars and the criminal acts that followed.

Name them and shame them !

No matter Assanges motives, he is serving a purpose that is sorely lacking in the US....OVERSGHT! Where are the investigative reporters that should be doing their jobs? Perhaps satisfying the peoples need for titilating stories by supplying " Inside Edition" With drival. We are lost without the Assanges' of the world
