    Whose national security? He's not an American. If you were to compromise the national security of Mozambique by exposing war crimes, would you consider yourself a terrorist?

    I prefer the analysis carried out by the same two expert analysts who determined the number of deaths Milosovic was responsible for. You know, the analysis that the US accepted and was used as key evidence in finding Milosovic guitly at the Hague.

    Funny how when the same two analysts are sent to Iraq to carry out an identical assessment, with an even larger sample size, the US questions the accuracy of the report. Funny that isnt it!

    Lets assume the US defence department is correct with an estimate of about 100,000 dead Iraqi civilains. Sounds like a crime against humanity to me? And remember, Saddam was tried and hung for the death of about 140 prisoners.

    This has to do with exposing war crimes and atrocoties - purely a moral and legal matter. Not a time to politically pollute the issue with your paranoic left right tribalism
    So you've now downsized from 1.4 million to 140,000. I guess that's progress.

    It has nothing to do with what country and everything to do with ambassador communications with higher-ups being classified. That is legitimate security, and Assange violated it just like he allegedly violated women. He has no sense of deceny, and no problem throwing the US under the bus for the fame and glory spewed upon him by conspiracy theory people.

    He didn't "expose war crimes", he released thousands of classified documents from ambassadors concerning their speculations about their respective assignments.

    which is still better than your approach, which essentially is 'My country never'. Unless, of course, they abandon capitalism and convert to a socialist utopia, and never again venture beyond the borders of the United States.

    In the bizarre world of the Far Left, this constitutes terrorism.

    Yes, having an ambassador that can send his speculations to higher-ups via classified channels is terrorism. Hah.

    CTers, what can one do?
