    It's a man's name. I've never heard of a woman named Julian.

    I may actually start watching CNN again. Assange is a Hero. The Governments of the World are the villains. He simply told the truth. Your Government lies to you on a daily basis. If CNN is praising him,well Kudos to them. I may have to give CNN another chance.

    Julian Assange is a creepy man from what I've read about him.(his emails and such)

    As for Wikileaks, his claims of high morality and transparency are for money.
    His espionage game is a a disgusting steal and tell game that endangers and probably has killed Afghanis and their fight for freedom and the soldiers who battle for the Afghanis families, women, children.
    There are some times of war and national security that need to be classified, sensitive and secret for sake of life, intelligence, imminent danger and security to country and military.
    I fear what Assange has or could have comprimised by the theft of vital information.
    I also hope he is eventually charged with some sort of penalty for espionage.

    The Associated Press: Coalition informant plays both sides of Afghan war

    That claim has been debunked enough times as to be embarrassing.

    So the theft of confidential government documents is justified?
    How far do you tip the scales releasing political sensitive cables about nuclear weapons and facilities or human rights endeavours.....for all to read and access.
    How will these incautious releases of diplomatic conversations stifle human rights and democracy around the world.....by quashing the sensitive and confidential talks among leaders...

    The cautious and sensitive talks among LEADERS?? Haha, what makes you think they are leaders, and that their talks are cautious and sensitive? I think you mean scandalous and secretive because if anyone found out, they would want to behead them. The only time you keep things secret is because you want to make money and don't want to let anybody in on it. Don't think our government stands for a higher purpose when it comes to international politics. It's about them making money and that's it. We have our own problems here we need to do with. When our government is committing illegal acts daily, both covertly and blatantly? YES, it is very justified. Governments need to be held in check. Assange is a hero to humanity. End of story.

    This fear based campaign of 'he might cause others to be killed or harmed' by having released these documents is bogus. I don't buy it for a second. It's just something fox news , which by the way is "THE MEDIA," tells you.

    And you'd shit your pants in rage if he threatened to release Obama's college records.

    Assange desperately wants to be perceived as a Bond villain, but he lacks the horsepower to pull it off.
