    I believe he's still a suspect, and I believe that he might not have acted alone, and I believe that you should really stop acting like a judge and declare what happened and what didn't happen as it damages the credibility of your claims.
    The Wikileaks organization might have ordered or asked the person/s who has/have stolen the files to commit the theft, that needs to be investigated as we do not know that yet.

    Ofc he won't.
    US will ensure he doesn't get a fair trial after the witch hunt they have initiated.
    Froze his assets, had his site domain removed, stopped his funding in its entirety, his site hacked many times, had his server closed down and issued a warrant by Interpol ... ALL of this based on an alleged sexual assault that isn't even proven?

    No, I do take that back.
    US seems squeaky clean next to countries like Saudi Arabia.

    Which btw, I had a freaking blast reading how it funds terrorism and extremism in the world
    US sure knows how to picks it allies I suppose oil can make you over look alot eh? lol

    Common sense suggests that if he'd broken a law, the U.S. would already have issued a warrant and/or convened a grand jury.
    Until investigation is complete, we do not know even that.

    Says who?

    He published it. Publication of classified information is not a crime in the U.S. It's the release of information by someone with security clearance (Bradley Manning) that is the only crime in the case.
    No, but I did say achieve and illegally.

    That is why I said it was not exact. Imagine though that he contacted embassy personal away from the embassy.

    Oh, good grief. If we had a shard of evidence that he was involved, we'd already have issued a warrant and snatched him. Did you know that the British police knew his whereabouts the entire time?

    Speaking of wild speculation. There is little sugests that Assange did ANYTHING besides publishing the already leaked reports & cables. Ockham's razor, y'all.

    You cannot simply declare that it did and you cannot simply declare that it did not, as you weren't observing the event of stealing and you are not aware of the facts that regard to Wikileaks' involvement.
    Wikileaks simply disseminates info, it states on its website it does not encourage people to share info, while we can't know for certain, it seems a bad idea for Assange to risk what amounts to his lifes work on some crappy diplomatic cables.

    He may have aided Manning with technical advice on how to do it. He may also have encouraged him to do so. This is just two ways he could in fact be complicit in the crime of stealing the information. Rushing to judgment is always a mistake, whether for or against.

    There are questions unresolved in the Manning investigation. Read up on it.
