    I agree, Assange is not a US citizen, did not work for any US agency, has no legal obligation to the United States, all he did was disseminate information in a very clever manner that makes it difficult to cut off or censor.

    If there is treason it is from the leakers within the government, the incompetence of those who run the classification system and the moronic diplomats who put gossip in cables.

    But then one does not have to be exceptionally bright to be a diplomat, the role is nothing more than a parrot wearing a tie.

    Anybody know if they're on line for casual perusal?

    No one with an IQ over 20 suggests that Assange committed treason... he would have to be an American to commit treason. What he did was espionage. He is guilty of receiving and disseminating information stolen from the US Government. Mmmmk? Now that we have that cleared up....He can, and I hope he will, be charged with espionage.

    This is not about stupid gossip, this is about our ability to maintain our credibility with security services around the world. Anyone who cannot understand the importance of being able to share information without the concern of it being leaked to a world audience is an idiot.

    Good to know that you're desire for gossip outweighs our national security.

    Paul is referring to Mike Huckabee who said that those who leaked the information should be executed for treason.

    It's all just 'Shoot the Messenger' at this point. Our MSM in this country have become subservient Lapdogs to the Government. Why no discussion on what the Government did? Why is the discussion only focused on the Messenger? The answer is that our MSM is in bed with the Government. There is no independent Media in this country.

    What about Hillary Clinton and the CIA ordering spying on UN Members? Our MSM has completely ignored this and wont even discuss it. Instead they continue to only focus on the Messenger. This is no coincidence. I've noticed our MSM only becomes slightly less of a Lapdog when a Republican is in the White House. When a Republican is in there,they pretend to be somewhat of a Watchdog. When a Democrat is in there,it's 24/7 boot licking. Chalk that up to their Liberal/Democrat Bias,which has been proven. But overall they're mere Lapdogs. This Wikileak scandal proves that.
