    Is it a crime what Assange did? Or is he protected by Free Speech/Free Press? You make the call. I'm interested in hearing what you all think. Thanks.

    The most basic definition of espionage is the use of spies by a government to learn the military secrets of other nations. So your topic question is illogical.

    It is a Crime. It is an act of war. It is Cyber Terrorism. The Site should be shut down.

    He isn't an American citizen, he isn't subject to US law. Case closed.

    He has obtained illegal Contraband, Classified Information illegally obtained, and has done great harm to this Country. This is a hostile act that will cost in human life. You stick your head up your ass, if you must, don't include the rest of us. Fight to have the site shut down. Boycott it until it is.

    or better yet download a copy of the insurance files.

    I can't buy the argument that leaks vetted by the DOD are contraband. Sorry. Besides that same DOD steals every e communication on earth that they can steal. Billions/year. They do it in violation of our law and international law and they steal biometric data from foreign embassadors.

    Not being US they can't use the 1st as a protection device.

    Espionage is another matter.....

    If he was a muzzie we would have got him by now.

    But he is a muzze lover and, just like Mohammed, a pervert (Interpol are after him).

    Assange is bound to have an accident in the future, one would assume.

    He is an online Osama bin Laden.
