Yet more legal threats from Julian Assange

A cryptic description of Wikileaks: Wikileaks is noble art in tradition of information sharing

Bullshit, Assange and his group of shadow warriors are masters of the art of intimidation:
But the political commentator Douglas Murray, director of the centre for social cohesion, challenged Assange over the website's sources of funding, its staffing and connections with the Holocaust denier Israel Shamir, who has worked with the site.

"What gives you the right to decide what should be known or not? Governments are elected. You, Mr Assange are not."

Murray also challenged the WikiLeaks founder over an account in a book by Guardian writers David Leigh and Luke Harding, in which the authors quote him suggesting that if informants were to be killed following publication of the leaks, they "had it coming to them".

Assange repeated an earlier assertion that the website "is in the process of suing the Guardian" over the assertion, and asked if Murray would like to "join the queue" of organisations he was suing.

The Guardian has not received any notification of such action from WikiLeaks or its lawyers.
In the brief moments between legal threats, Assange fantasizes he's head of the people's CIA:
We are, in a sense, a pure expression of what the media should be: an intelligence agency of the people, casting pearls before swine.
Did Assange mean to claim he provides pearls of wisdom for the masses who are too stupid to appreciate them? Consider his megalomania and decide for yourself.
