Nice interview. Much like the first week. Episode two no doubt, had many people wondering (likely Assange himself) over where the direction of the show was heading. Great to see Assange back in charge of the interview. Perhaps one to one interviews are better.

One can read between the lines:
Have you seen your file - the answer is there are a lot if files etc etc - so really let us talk about something about which I am allowed to talk.

The Tunisian stance on Syria - look at the parallel with Bahrain of all the places! Why should we expect anything better than a tangential referral to not offering Assad a hiding place. Let us be serious JA - good you exposed this man to the world but there are far better people and lot more that the Peoples of the World need to know - so try something more deserving, PLEASE. By the way revealing something that people knew existed but could not prove is much appreciated; our sympathies are with you.

Thank you for this interview. The questions and replies are strong and sincere. They give hope to ALL of us.

The show should be an hour long. Very few shows tackle and ask pertinent questions to power that be, except shows on RT. I hope RT can also ask important questions to the Russian power elites too!

Best interview yet. I could see Marzouki and Assange getting a bit emotional towards the end. One human rights activist to another, fighting the good fight!

Show was good!:-)
Very serious questions were asked.
I must say that I didn’t know who is president Marzouki.
You learn every day something new!
So thanks J.A. for that!:-)
President Marzouki appeared to be a wise politician.
But I didn’t like one thing he said!!
That is!! That He and/or his government stands behind Bahrain but not Syria!!!
It is illogical!!!???
If you are really pro-human rights and democracy you will not support any of them!!!???
But I guess that is a price of power and price
of being Tunisian president!:-(
J.A. Show should be longer!!!
Time passes quickly when you ask serious questions
and there is so many
questions and topics to be discus!!!

iI am pleased that you referred to psychological torture. Such torture can be subtle and insidious and a person doesn’t need to be in prison to be subjected to it. It seems t be the modus operandi of government departments whether military or civilian, as a way to deal with their dissidents, whistleblowers and truth tellers. The similarities are so incredibly similar that I make the assumption that it’s a policy, a cruel unwritten policy that has taken lives by suicide, murder by proxy, and destruction of families, destruction of careers, reputations and so on. Psychological torture seems to be a normal or tolerated system to undermine an individual that I theorise about what is behind it. The ’trickle down theory’ or ’Milgram experiment’ theory. But wherever the government wants to protect itself from truths they are very ready to launch into such torture, like it’s policy. And I’m only talking about civilian torture of non detained persons.

Yes and there`s something even worse than torture ...and that`s government by fear....a Reign of Terror...where people are frightened to protest about injustice because of what the CIA or Mossad might DO but also what Fox and the BBC MIGHT SAY about destroy their REPUTATION!

In Britain today we are ruled by people who impose the craziest most counter-intuitive policies that a post-industrial failing welfare state like ours could possibly adopt.

Of course party politics is a waste of time..... but we can protest in the streets if we accept that the BBC/Westminster "journalists" and "politicians" will single us out for exposure as racists and right wingers....though they would be slower to criticise Asians and Zionists and Roman Catholics who can express more extreme views without attracting criticism.

It`s like living in a New Inquisition watching BBC programmes like "Question Time"!

Syria is not democratic.
The USA is not democratic.
Bahrain is not democratic.
Democracy is an illusion, like Communism was.
