WikiLeaks Founder Walks Out on CNN Interviewer


While WikiLeaks' Julian Assange has made a name for himself by putting members and operations of the U.S. military under the public's microscope, don't expect him to shed light on his own personal trappings.

During an interview with CNN, the interviewer presses him to discuss rape and sexual molestation charges previously brought against him in Sweden, Assange abruptly ends the interview and walks off camera:

"It's completely disgusting," he remarks to the interviewer. "I'm going to walk if you're going to contaminate us revealing the deaths of 104,000 people with attacks against my person."

According to reports, once the Swedish charges were filed, Assange told a Swedish tabloid he believed the U.S. Department of Defense was behind them.  "We have been warned that the Pentagon, for example, is thinking of deploying dirty tricks to ruin us. And I have also been warned about sex traps," he said.  Later it was revealed that the "dirty tricks" had been hatched by a couple of Swedish Wiki fans.
