Assange is a non-U.S. citizen operating outside the territory of the United States. This means the government has a wide range of options for dealing with him. It can employ not only law enforcement but also intelligence and military assets to bring Assange to justice and put his criminal syndicate out of business.
That is the only sentence that matters in this screed from some eejit at the AEI.
He is calling for the US to go murder Assange under the guise of national security.
Don’t give me any shit about the sentences that appear after that one. This is the key sentence, period, end of story.
We already have a policy of assassinating Americans deemed a threat.
Assange is dead. And this is where you saw them call for his death.
