Trying to stifle and attack WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, at a time when jailed Chinese dissident Liu Xiaobo has been being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize highlights the irony of double standards that are existent in the ‘free world.'

The charges against Julian Assange are surprising. As far as America is concerned, the WikiLeaks cable expose is one of the most embarrassing situations it has had to face in the recent past and has a fallout in international diplomatic circles. The credit goes to WikiLeaks and Mr. Assange for exposing the ugly face of hypocricy.
