WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is on the run

"Julian Assange moves like a hunted man. In a noisy Ethiopian restaurant in London’s rundown Paddington district, he pitches his voice barely above a whisper to foil the Western intelligence agencies he fears. He demands that his dwindling number of loyalists use expensive encrypted cellphones and swaps his own as other men change shirts. He checks into hotels under false names, dyes his hair, sleeps on sofas and floors, and uses cash instead of credit cards, often borrowed from friends"

So begins a New York Times profile of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, which Assange himself calls a "character assassination."   Read about Assange's response in the Huffington Post here.
