    Re: U.S. nervously awaits next WikiLeaks

    I wonder how it feels to be Assange knowing that there are professional assasins near him at all moments now who simply wait for their government's green light to end his life in a split second. And I feel sure not all of these folks are native English speakers by now. I am not advocating this as I would hate to see him be turned into a martyr.

    Perhaps his magnificent hubris protects him from this cold, hard and ever present fact.

    first victims:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2010/11/30/wo.../30tehran.html

    TEHRAN — Unidentified assailants riding motorcycles launched bomb attacks early on Monday against two Iranian nuclear physicists here, killing one of them and prompting accusations that the United States and Israel were behind the episode, state-controlled media reports said.

    The dead scientist was identified as Majid Shahriari, a physics professor at Shahid Beheshti University in northern Tehran, whose wife was injured when a bomb attached to his car was detonated remotely. A second professor at the same university, Fereydoon Abbasi, was injured in a separate, simultaneous attack. His wife was also hurt.

    Iranian media reports said the attackers attached bombs to the cars of both academics and detonated them from a distance.

    The semi-official Fars news agency declared: “The United States and the Zionist regime perpetrated a terrorist attack on two professors at Shahid Beheshti university.”

    Some unofficial Iranian media reports, controlled by hardliners, described Mr. Abbasi as a loyalist supporter of the Iranian regime involved in nuclear research at the Defense Ministry and said both scientists were from the nuclear engineering department of Shahid Beheshti University.

    Mr. Shahriari was said in some reports to have taught at the Supreme National Defense University, run by the Iranian Army.

    Iranian media accounts called the attacks terrorism.

    The attacks were similar to a bombing last January in which a remote-controlled bomb killed another physics professor, Masoud Ali Mohammadi, outside his home. The Iranian authorities also blamed that attack on the United States and Israel — a charge the State Department in Washington rebutted as absurd.

    You do know it is illegal for US operatives and the US to assassinate people right? Ford kinda banned it...

    well, the assassination comes one day after wikileaks releases the cables, and they're both working for Atomic Energy Organization of Iran. they're most likely informants who got spotted and killed by Iranian Intelligence Ministry. at least the style matches their previous assassinations.

    Boy that is one hell of a stretch lol. And considering it is not the first assassination, then linking them to wikileaks is ...

    You need to stop with the "you do know" ****.

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    And you need to read up on your own countries executive orders... Ford and Reagan both signed off on this ban, and as far as I know it has not been removed.

    Not officially and technically. It depends on how you define "political assassinations". The drone attacks are on military targets and not political targets. The wiki-leaks guy would clearly be a civilian political target.
