Assange Makes Much Anticipated Video Appearance, and This is What we Learned [VIDEO]

Written by Philip Hodges

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange had canceled a major and much anticipated announcement because of “specific information” presumably pertaining to his security. He was planning on making his announcement from the balcony of the Ecuadorian embassy in London where he currently resides and has taken asylum for the past five years.

He decided to postpone his announcement to coincide with his document-leaking organization’s tenth anniversary celebration the very next day.

Once he finally made his video appearance at his organization’s tenth anniversary celebration in Berlin, probably millions of viewers – mostly in the United States, hoping for damning information that would bring Hillary Clinton down – were sorely disappointed. Even Alex Jones is mad at him.

“I’ve seen the internet, and I understand that there’s enormous expectation in the United States,” he said with a smirk. “Some of those expectations will be partly answered, but you have to understand that if we’re going to make a major publication, in relation to the United States, at a particular hour, we don’t do it at 3am.”

Nevertheless, he went on to assure viewers that “we have a great many upcoming publications.” He said he hoped to generate new leaks every week for the next 10 weeks pertaining to Google, war, arms trading, mass surveillance, the U.S. national election. All documents related to the U.S. presidential election would be released prior to November 8.

What’s important to remember is that much of the hype surrounding upcoming leaks from Julian Assange stems from the media. And then Americans – particularly Hillary’s opponents – get the impression that Assange’s main goal is to bring Hillary down, and they develop these unrealistic expectations. That’s not his main goal. His main goal has been to expose the corruption at the top, and Hillary Clinton is merely a part of that.

I think it’s safe to say that whatever he has pertaining to the U.S. elections will be revelatory, but not damning enough to bring down anyone in particular.

Here’s video of his tenth anniversary conference. Assange joins via video around 1:26:00:
