DISCLAIMER: I am not--repeat NOT--offering a personal opinion on Julian Assange here though I do have a personal opinion about all that which I will probably share later. But I will admit that this Paul Wachter piece did make me back up and rethink some of my opinion about all that: So what do you think? Is Assange a villain who is attempting to undermine the security and integrity of the USA? Or is he a hero and a wakeup call for indefensible corruption in government that nobody has the courage to address? Did the quoted piece make any difference in how you look at this? Or do you see Wachter as being over the top and indefensible in his point of view?
