Barack Obama a ‘wolf in sheep`s clothing’: Julian Assange

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said that he expects the American government to keep attacking his whistleblowing website.



Melbourne: WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has described re-elected US President Barack Obama as a ‘wolf in sheep`s clothing’, adding that he expects the American government to keep attacking his whistleblowing website.

Speaking by phone from Ecuador`s London embassy, the 41-year-old Australian said on Wednesday that Obama`s victory was no cause for celebration.

“Obama seems to be a nice man, and that is precisely the problem,” the Herald Sun quoted Assange, as saying.

“It`s better to have a sheep in wolf`s clothing than a wolf in sheep`s clothing,” he added.

According to the paper, Assange complained of the ‘persecution’ of WikiLeaks by Obama’s government.

“All of the activities against WikiLeaks by the United States have occurred under an Obama administration,” the paper quoted him, as saying.

“The Republican party has not been an effective restraining force on government excesses over the last four years,” he said.

“There is no reason to believe that will change - in fact, the Republicans will push the administration into ever greater excesses,” he added.
