Time Magazine journo who called for drone strike on Assange faces Twitter backlash

Washington, Aug. 18 : A Time magazine reporter has caused outrage after saying on Twitter he said he 'can't wait to write a defense of the drone strike that takes out' WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.


Michael Grunwald's tweet, since deleted, was quickly met with outrage.

Glenn Greenwald, who recently broke several revelations about NSA surveillance programs based on documents provided to him by leaker Edward Snowden, was particularly vocal in expressing his disgust with Grunwald's statement.

According to the Huffington Post, one person tweeted a caricature of a man with an exaggerated hook nose rubbing his hands together with the words 'found this picture of you'.

Shortly afterwards Grunwald apologized for the tweet, calling it 'stupid,' the report added.
