In an interview produced by Millar Grattan Media, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange claims that the United State’s response to his organization’s activities has been the most severe reaction since the McCarthy era.

“The United States has brought out to the public an extremely aggressive response,” he said. “In private, it is also doing other things. That response has been the most aggressive response to an international publisher ever.”

“I think there is a perception that the public rhetoric went too far,” Assange added. “But under the surface these investigations continue.”
