One of America’s most wanted men and Wikileaks editor-in-chief, Julian Assange, released a message Tuesday slamming Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton.
Assange, who is likely a permanent resident of Ecuador’s London embassy after Swedish police wanted to question him for an alleged sexual assault and possible child molestation, called out Clinton for her “poor policy decisions” while Secretary of State under the Obama administration, saying that “a vote today for Hillary Clinton is a vote for endless, stupid war.”
“Hillary didn’t just vote for Iraq. She made her own Iraq,” Assange wrote. “Libya is Hillary’s Iraq and if she becomes president she will make more.”

The statement was released on Wikileaks’ Twitter account early Tuesday morning. Assange also blasted the Pentagon’s generals for “destroying the Libyan state” and labeled Clinton as the architect of its destruction.
“I have had years of experience in dealing with Hillary Clinton and have read thousands of her cables. Hillary lacks judgement and will push the United States into endless wars which spread terrorism. Her personality combined with her poor policy decisions have directly contributed to the rise of ISIS.”
He closes the opt-ed tweet by claiming Clinton isn’t done meddling with the Middle East and she plans to continue the war in Syria by expanding beyond the scope of Obama’s airstrikes-only campaign.
“Hillary’s problem is not just that she’s war hawk. She’s a war hawk with bad judgement who gets an unseemly emotional rush out of killing people. She shouldn’t be let near a gun shop, let alone an army. And she certainly should not become president of the United States.”
