    Really? What if the expose on the Banking and Wall Street expose comes out in the open for everyone to see? Then will he be a hero?

    I somehow doubt it. He would go from hero to Communist in 2 seconds flat.

    BTW... I find it amusing that the expose that Assange promised on those entities never came out. Also funny how he was arrested for sexual assault at approximately the same time as the said expose was supposed to be released. Coincidence? I think not.

    It makes me wonder about another high profile arrest recently... the IMF guy... his name escapes me at the moment. You'd think an old rich geezer like him would have been caught in his sexual improprieties a long time ago. What does he know? What may they be trying to stifle?

    Not saying it's so... just makes me wonder.

    I trust Big Business and Wall Street about as much as a Shiite trust government.

    I see Point A.
    I see Point B.

    I don't see a connection.

    Point A: Manning blowing the whistle on the absurdities of our wars.

    Point B: "What if the expose on the Banking and Wall Street expose comes out in the open for everyone to see? Then will he be a hero?

    I somehow doubt it. He would go from hero to Communist in 2 seconds flat."

    I don't see the connection. In fact, many people do not view Manning as a hero, but a traitor. They believe that transparency is a violation of patriotism. Only a minority of believe that Manning is hero who acted rightfully on his conscience.
