    He made 1.3 million from an autobiography after he became the peoples champion of not knowing when to shut the **** up, as well as an $800,000 dollar deal with another publisher in the works. Speaking of, in his book, he says this little gem:

    What a swell guy.



    Of course there were, it just isn't in the papers. We already ****ed up by letting this happen, why go further by confirming kills for the Taliban?


    Assange is an activist, not a journalist.


    Yeah, that happened in 1798 with the Alien and Sedition Acts. Illegally publishing classified military information is not, and should never be protected by the First Amendment, just as libel, slander, incitement of violent acts, and terrorist threats aren't protected. There has always been limits to the First Amendment, and for good reason.
    Robert Gates was on TV when I saw him say that what Wikileaks had released caused harm to NOBODY. He was the Sec Def. So all that wicked stuff people like to attribute to Assange is a bit of a hoax.

    He's a hero in the sense that Paul Revere was, and heros are few and far between.

    It's true he is no angel, for he is a man. Nobody is perfect, and perfection is not an option.

    But he's one of the few people in the world telling the truth about certain matters.

    Except raping women. He apparently isn't willing to tell the truth about that in a court of law.

    If you knew the whole story, you would not post like that because the whole truth is a fairly long story and reveals that it was not rape at all. The Swedes have weird laws, and the first prosecutor dismissed the case.

    If you had full knowledge of the case, you would understand.

    You need to cite this claim.

    He's a hero in the sense that Paul Revere was, and heros are few and far between.

    It's true he is no angel, for he is a man. Nobody is perfect, and perfection is not an option.

    Revere was a warhawk that perpetuated tensions between the colonies and Britain, resulting in a war of attrition that lasted 8 years and cost an estimated 50,000 dead and wounded. Assange is a lousy activist that likes the smell of his own bowel movements, and contributes nothing of value to anybody.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    I have no problem with what Assange is doing.

    There's something murky and dubious about the powerful government that's ruling you holding "classified" data.

    Gates comments were on one of the MSM news programs, maybe more. When he was in office. There were stories about it in the print media too. It was way more than a year ago, maybe 2. Sorry I can't link to it.

    Paul Revere was responsible for the American Revolution?

    For the US government to call Manning a traitor is like Hitler calling a pesticide man a mass murderer.

    He can't face those charges if the government that's charging him has ulterior motives. Until Sweden can get its act together and stop being uncle sammy's bitch, it doesn't make sense for him to stand trial there.

    Except the dudes he pissed on are higly-placed individuals in government and corporations--individuals who would do anything to save their own asses.

    That's why Assange is living it up in Ecuador, giving speeches at this convenience, while David Cameron and Obama are shaking in their boots.
