How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Filmmaker Michael Moore Defends WikiLeaks Founder and Posts $$$

Controversial and seldom-at-a-loss-for-words filmmaker Michael Moore is stepping into the fray and defending WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange — and putting up money too.

In a statement posted on his website Tuesday morning, Moore wrote:

“Yesterday, in the Westminster Magistrates Court in London, the lawyers for WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange presented to the judge a document from me stating that I have put up $20,000 of my own money to help bail Mr. Assange out of jail.”

“Furthermore, I am publicly offering the assistance of my website, my servers, my domain names and anything else I can do to keep WikiLeaks alive and thriving as it continues its work to expose the crimes that were concocted in secret and carried out in our name and with our tax dollars.

“We were taken to war in Iraq on a lie. Hundreds of thousands are now dead. Just imagine if the men who planned this war crime back in 2002 had had a WikiLeaks to deal with. They might not have been able to pull it off. The only reason they thought they could get away with it was because they had a guaranteed cloak of secrecy. That guarantee has now been ripped from them, and I hope they are never able to operate in secret again.”

Some Congressional lawmakers have called Assange a traitor and a spy and have demanded that he be prosecuted. Attorney Gen. Eric Holder Jr. recently announced that a criminal investigation into the leaks was underway.
