He should NOT be deported to US under any circumstance.
Frankly I think UK should hand him over to the EU Courts.
I don't trust UK courts, too much US influence on our politics. We're not going to be able to be neutral in this judgement with US bitching down our ear to hand him over imo
Our anger at WikiLeaks should not obscure the fact that it is Washington's absurd data-sharing policy that made this possible. That's the scandal here that needs fixing. FAREED ZAKARIA
There's an awful lot of foaming at the mouth lately by Americans in general and conservatives in particular. A more reasoned analysis shows that the diplomatic cable releases have at least up to this point not been all bad for Americans and American diplomacy.
Excerpted from WikiLeaks Shows the Skills of U.S. Diplomats By FAREED ZAKARIA, TIME, Thursday, Dec. 02, 2010
I don't deny for a moment that many of the "wikicables" are intensely embarrassing, but the sum total of the output I have read is actually quite reassuring about the way Washington or at least the State Department works.
First, there is little deception. The WikiLeaks documents show Washington pursuing privately pretty much the policies it has articulated publicly. And often this foreign policy is concerned with broader regional security, not narrow American interests. Ambassadors are not caught pushing other countries in order to make deals secretly to strengthen the U.S., but rather to solve festering problems.
The cables also show an American diplomatic establishment that is pretty good at analysis. When foreigners encounter U.S. diplomats and listen to their bland recitation of policy, they would do well to keep in mind that behind the facade lie some very clever minds.
The most significant revelations in the trove are those relating to Arab views of Iran. It's one thing to have diplomats expressing these sentiments in private, quite another to have the direct and explicit words of the King of Saudi Arabia.
Real environmentalists live in cities, and they visit what's left of the wilderness as gently and respectfully as possible. Donna Moulton, letter to the editor, Tucson Weekly, published on August 23, 2001
His nationality is irrelevant. To use an example to illustrate(I realize that the comparison is not exact), if a Soviet had gone to Europe and tried to get some one at a US embassy to give him secret information, he would be guilty of spying, even though he has not entered the US, nor was he a US citizen.
