    He is not a Terrorist, He is however someone who Committed Espionage against the US, and should be treated as Such. What we gained by having light shed on some bad Practices by our own Government, was totally eclipsed by the Damage he did, and Lives he put in danger, by the way he went about it.

    Future martyr. Nothing will be gained by shutting him up, quite the contrary, but it will not prevent him from one day soon dying by the hands of the US government.

    Seriously? he exposed Methods, Relationships, Operations, and a lot of what we did and did not know.

    It's pretty simple to deduce his Leaks did Major Damage to our Intelligence Gathering Capabilities, and Ability to get certain Parties to work with us in the world.

    It Could have been handled differently, he could have taken only those Documents that exposed some Stupid shit we were doing, and Redacted the Thousands of UN-related Documents that only Served to Expose our Secrets, methods, Assets, and Relationships. He was less worried about letting Americans know what their Government was doing, than he was interested in Doing the US Harm.
