Julian Assange, the WikiLeaks founder who was arrested for rape Tuesday, can’t stop taking swipes at everyone connected with the U.S. government. In an op-ed piece he wrote for The Australian, Assange goes after ex-Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, other Republicans and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

As for government officials, “There have been dozens of serious calls in the U.S. for me to be ‘taken out’ by U.S. special forces,” Assange writes. “Sarah Palin says I should be ‘hunted down like Osama bin Laden,’ a Republican bill sits before the U.S. Senate seeking to have me declared a ‘transnational threat’ and disposed of accordingly. … Australians should observe with no pride the disgraceful pandering to these sentiments by … U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.”
