STRATFOR email on Assange refers to 'switching him off' --The accepted culture at Stratfor includes sharing advice about how to take control of informants 'by means of financial, sexual or psychological control'. Assange Counts Down to Sweden 07 Mar 2012 Julian Assange has worn an electronic manacle for 454 days. Every day for 454 days he has signed in at a police station. Every night for 454 nights Serco has ensured he is home by 10pm, monitoring him in a fixed location for a required 10 hours, an equivalent of 225 days in prison. These bail conditions are maintained in the absence of any charge being laid against him - or even a decision to prosecute. They were set after an Interpol Red Notice was issued for Assange's arrest. Gaddafi attracted an orange notice around the same time. The emails about Assange and Wikileaks are vicious; one little charmer refers to "switching him off", that is, murder. Others lament when Assange is not killed in a car accident and joke, "Screw the terrorist. He'll be eating cat food forever... Assange is going to make a nice bride in prison". Their language and suggestions are sadistic and their strategy reads like spooky prophecy because Stratfor's advice is being taken.
