    Nice find, Boe. Seriously. I'm told he's facing over 50 years in prison. WTF? 50? Let's hope there are further charges pending.

    It says he exceeded his authority, so even though he had some clearance, he exceeded it. That doesn't put the blame on the people that classified him or Obama.

    "Why would anyone with a lick of sense read the media when they can read original material from WikiLeaks?

    "The average american reporter and editor must be very angry that his/her own cowardice is so clearly exposed by Julian Assange.

    "The american media is a whore, whereas the courageous blood of warriors runs through WikiLeaks’ veins.

    "Just as american politicians want Bradley Manning executed because he revealed crimes of the US government, they want Julian Assange executed. In the past few days the more notorious of the dumbshits that sit in the US Congress have denounced Assange as a “traitor to america.” What total ignorance.

    "Assange is an Australian, not an american citizen.

    "To be a traitor to america, one has to be of the nationality.

    "An Australilian cannot be a traitor to america any more than an american can be a traitor to Australia.

    "But don’t expect the morons who represent the lobbyists to know this much."

    What Wiki..

    That'll be because it's not their fault. This is Manning's responsibility and his alone. No one else should be held accountable for his actions.

    We should hand it over to the Military and let them deal with him.

    Absolutely. And the Military has some rather harsh penalties.

    I don't know exactly how to word this, but maybe what is meant by "traitor to America" is that since Australia is an ally Assange acted in a manner contrary to what would generally be the position of an allied country. In a sense, he has betrayed Australia. What's to stop this creep from getting his hands on the secrets of other nations (particularly those who are currently clapping their hands and licking their lips over US secrets) and expose them to the entire world? How happy would it make those nations and their citizens?

    I don't wonder that Interpol is looking for him. Every agency on the planet should be doing the same thing. If this was the old Soviet Kremlin being exposed you can bet your ass he'd be hunted down. The only thing I can make of his running into hiding is that he's nothing but a coward.
