(Newser) – The man quickly becoming Public Enemy No. 1 in world capitals still has a warm and fuzzy place in his mom's heart. Quotes from an interview with Christine Assange about son Julian and his WikiLeaks exploits in Australia's Herald Sun:

  • "He sees what he's doing as doing a good thing in the world, fighting baddies, if you like."
  • "Of course, I'm his mother, he's my little boy."

  • He's a "seeker of truth."
  • "Whether you agree with what Julian does or not, living by what you believe in and standing up for something is a good thing."
  • "I'm concerned it's gotten too big and the forces that he's challenging are too big."
  • "What people don't realise is that Julian is very funny."
