    And why not?

    They have now inserted themselves in the war on one particular side and must be prepared for the consequences.

    This guy should be hung by his toe nails.

    Enemy combatant of the United States. Might as well have bombed us.

    Many things in the real world are illegal but the democracies also have to fight back when their interests are being threatened.

    I've dealt with SIPRNet, I've always suggested having it on systems with (at the time) floppy drives) was a glaring error of judgment.

    You did notice I didn't mention the USA, right?

    But hey, don't take my word for it:
    Sounds like Assaunge has changed his own mission. With which other key personnel have disagreed with him on and have left.

    Oh well. Not surprising really. But while I might not like him targeting the US exclusively I still think that such an organization needs to be around. Perhaps he will get sent to prison for that pedophile charge (hopefully if it is true) and his ex-buddies will start up their own wikileaks type site.

    What would be the point in shutting it down? It would just get shoved to a different set of servers. Assuming of course that Obama really could have it shut down being as the servers would have to be within US jurisdiction for them to have it done legally.

    He's attacking the security of the United States. I would say he falls into the, "enemies, foreign and domestic", catagory.
