    Julian was part of the cypherpunk/coderpunk groups back in the day.   I'm sure he was an international arms trafficker like the rest of us back when ITAR was the law of the land.

    It is darkly funny that there was a long-standing discussion about "Assassination Politics" on the cypherpunk mailing list when various political actors and pundits are now calling for Julian's assassination.
