If I didn't take this opportunity to appeal
to world leaders of today, I would be amiss. Of all world governmental bodies,
I appeal to the United Nations to hear my case and make a ruling on my
predicament. My followers and those who believe in the freedom of information
are eager for a resolution. I appeal to your august body that represents all
that is noble in humankind's history. Please hear my case. I ask with humility
your assistance to solve my stalemate so I can be free again.
I appeal to all freethinking countries in
the world to acknowledge the revolution that is now afoot. Appeal to the new
generation of Web-savvy hackers and social media gurus that make up your voting
base and hear their voice to learn that they support my case because I have
brought betterment to the world and brightened their future. Become world
leaders in our collective effort for transparency. Have nothing to hide. Act
nobly and honor goodwill. Show transparency in your governance so there is no
fear of secrets. Being accountable is good policy. And good policy wins
elections. It's a sustainable platform for continued prosperity. Without the
truth there would be no light. Honesty is man's most noble virtue, and its most
universal. If you give your people honesty they will follow you, believe in you
and fight for you because they now have developed their sixth sense to discern misinformation.
People have a nose for the truth. All truth must be embraced because that is
what the human race uses as their foundation to live. It is the universal
language beyond language. Appeal to those who want truth in their lives.
Please hear my case and rule with impartial
justice. But most of all let's end this legal stalemate.
When you have time to whittle it all down
there is not that much more to say other than look at what I have done and
understand how the story has unfolded. I hope that I can once again recover my
freedom from under this layer of legal netting.
I see it all as a publishing issue, pure
and simple. The submission platform is secure. There is no way I can identify
the source. I only act as a conduit, benign and impartial. That's its strength
and also where it becomes dangerous. It's all fun and games until danger
becomes real and fear is an ever-present emotion that lingers into the night
hours. It hinders sleep.
I have chosen to remain quiet for some time
now mainly because of my legal cases. For a man who values freedom and
information and the integrity of good reporting, it is ironic I'm now confined
to a small room on the third floor in an embassy in London. Despite my sad
state of affairs, I am still hopeful that I can see it all through and emerge
in the warm light of day on the other side. I keep faith that this moment will
