    Assange: Clinton should resign over alleged spying - U.S. news - WikiLeaks in Security - msnbc.com

    The founder of WikiLeaks, the organization that has published tens of thousands of confidential American diplomatic cables, says U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton should resign if she ordered diplomats to spy.

    "She should resign if it can be shown that she was responsible for ordering U.S. diplomatic figures to engage in espionage in the United Nations, in violation of the international covenants to which the U.S. has signed up," Julian Assange told Time Magazine in an interview.

    That takes some nerve for a wanted man to say.

    'Ridiculous and absurd'
    The White House called Assange's statements on Clinton "ridiculous and absurd," according to CNN.

    "I'm not entirely sure why we care about the opinion of one guy with one website,” White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said. "Our foreign policy and the interests of this country are far stronger than his one website."

    I'm not a big fan of Gibbs, but Rock on big man! Tell that screwball he's under arrest!

    No she shouldn't.

    We live in an age when espionage needs to be used due to the all the corrupt politicians in the world. Having intel on a suspected enemy or a country that's intentions may change is only beneficial.

    If anyone thinks that the same is not being done to our delegates, they are not applying their intelligence....or they dont have any.

    This release of documents could help Obama. Hilary has effectively been shown to be incompetent. So much for "her" being competition in the next election.

    On the flip side, do you think he will publish Obama's school records or long form birth certificate?

    Hillary- did nothing wrong
    Assange-insignificant. We are America...we will survive this as well
    Gibbs on Fox ands Friends today- Artriculate and to the point. Not a fan of his, but today he told us the way it is. The Fox and Friuends crew acted like asses as they attacked him for his answers.

    US- Best not to pursue this. We, America allowed it to happen. We need to be more careful. But on the same note, we should never feel it appropriate to attack a form of media for reporting the truth...even if we dont like it.

    Next time...take more care tokeep classified docs...CLASSIFIED.

    Maybe, but I doubt it.

    He's funded by that need to have fame. He could care less about the consequinces of his actions as long as he gets his face on TV. [imo]
