I’ve been writing about Barrett Brown for over two years now. The first time I published about his plight was on January 3, 2013 in the post: Barrett Brown: A Jailed American Dissident.

Barrett Brown: A Jailed American Dissident

If you watched the excellent Anonymous documentary We are Legion, you will be familiar with Barrett Brown.  The interview below is from March 2011, but I found it really interesting since in it Barrett cryptically discusses his potential future arrest; an event that ultimately took place in September 2012.  When asked about him being targeted for arrest he states amusingly:

There is a Free Barrett Brown twitter account if you have any interest in following his story further.
