Really Mr Bleich?
So those emails are just another fairy tale maligning the good old US of A?

Let's see:-
Email #(375123)
"Not for Pub — We have a sealed indictment on Assange. Pls protect."

Email #(1056988)
According to Burton: "Assange is going to make a nice bride in prison. Screw the terrorist. He’ll be eating cat food forever."

Email (373862)
A few weeks earlier, following Julian Assange’s release from a London jail, where he had been remanded as a result of a Swedish prosecutor’s arrest warrant, Fred Burton told SkyNews: "extradition [to the US is] more and more likely".

Your security firm and you tell us "You're not interested..."
Once again proving that Yankee politicians and diplomats only ever open their mouths to lie to us.

Oh Mr Bleich.
In addition to those above this next one really has to be my personal favourite....

Email #(402168)
Three days before Manning arrived at Quantico Brig, Burton wrote to George Friedman, Stratfor CEO and founder:
“... blah blah blah...
The owner [Julian Assange] is a peacenik. He needs his head dunked in a full toilet bowl at Gitmo.”
