    It all depends on how he got the information. If it was handed to him without paying for it, or by stealing it himself, then he has done nothing illegal in publishing it. Btw, saying he's a **** for publishing it is absolutely acceptable too.

    Irrelevent as the 1st Amendment is a restriction on the government. Not people. As such the Federal Government cannot restrict ANYONE in regards to any of the Rights outlined in the Bill of Rights. Be they citizens or not. People often forget this little fact.

    Last I knew he never paid for the information he got, nor did he steal it, Manning did and he did it willingly.

    Then of the two, Manning is the only guilty party. Manning was not his sole provider, though.

    LOL!!

    Be realistic, eh? If the wikileaks owner ever came to the US, First Amendment rights would do nothing to protect him from our government throwing anything they can find in the book at him.
