Julian Assange and 'Band on the Run"

Julian Assange is a computer programmer, publisher, and journalist.   In 2006 he founded Wikileaks and is taking refuge in the London Equadorian embassy. He is currently wanted by Sweden.  He has been releasing delicate emails involving numerous US government officials.  Julian's internet connection was terminated by Equador on Monday morning.  The lost connection occurred at a crucial time while planning to release additional emails.    

If Assange was feeling a bit down he has had several visits from an interesting celebrity.  Pamela Anderson, blonde beauty from Baywatch was seen wearing a blue dress and pink heels as she carried bags into the embassy to visit Assange.  She was visiting because of her concern for Julian's welfare  and brought him a vegan meal.  

If you were a man in hiding could you possibly turn down a visit from Pamela Anderson, who is also  a porn star?   The visit  caused a barrage of Twitter comments claiming that Anderson had been paid to poison Assange, and that he is dead.  No one seems to know his status,  but I'm betting that the rumor isn't true.

In the midst of a chaotic United States presidential election  I would assume that more Wikileaks emails will be released through the network of hacker supporters.  

Netflix has a film on the Wikileaks "god" titled "We Steal Secrets: The Story of Wikileaks (2013).  "The Fifth Estate" is another movie that chronicles  the founding of Wikileaks.  Who knows what tomorrow will bring, but hopefully more details on Pamela Anderson's visit.
