Thank God - Julian Assange is Free!

Don't know the details.  Appears to be a plea deal.  I'm glad he took it.  Any thinking human knows he did not violate the Espionage Act nor could he.  If American law applied to him (which it did not) then the First Amendment also did and he was blameless.  He sacrificed so much for all freedom lovers and it's great that he is finally out of prison after the horrific torture our embarrassingly government and its allies inflicted upon him.

If humanity is lucky and free in the future, his name will be up there with the greatest movers of humanity in the face of the common tyranny of the time.
