A Conversation With Chris Blackburn On The Contradictions Surrounding Mifsud After the publication of Disobedient Media’s coverage of ‘eclectic scholar’ Joseph Mifsud’s unexamined ties to UK intelligence officials, this author was contacted by Chris Blackburn, a UK Political Analyst focusing on International Relations and Security, whose Twitter post instigated this writer’s research into the matter.

US Aggression Towards Syria Escalates As Assange Remains Unable To Speak Out

US Aggression Towards Syria Escalates As Assange Remains Unable To Speak Out Since Ecuador cut Julian Assange off from communication with the outside world two weeks ago, speculation has run rife on the nature of the driving forces behind Ecuador’s decision. With the drums of war now being sounded for the United States to enter into a full military attack on Assad in Syria, it is especially troubling that the Wikileaks Editor-In-Chief is prevented from expressing his views to the outside world. Assange has long been an extremely effective and ardent anti-war voice, often promoting the work of like-minded...
