    Didn't say you did. You do seem to think Asange actions would have been acceptable in the 1700s, but I doubt the Founding Fathers would have given a second thought before sending Asange to the hangman's noose or the firing squad.

    why would the patriots have had a problem with someone who would have exposed the pending stamp act

    What about his trial.. examining the information he leaked? You really think the founders would be for hanging somebody for making public classified documents, detailing the corruption in our government? The government isn't going to expose itself..

    Admittedly, I didn't go to his site before it was shut down.. but I read reports about things he leaked like Obama helping former Bush admin members get out of being indicted by Spain for creating a legal framework to making torture, not torture.. Who would have thunk Obama would be helping out the old admin? And then the Cheney issue in Africa and the charges he got out of..

    And watergate was leaked too... gee, you really think Washington and Jefferson would have hung that guy if he exposed Great Britain's corruption?

    You're entitled to your opinion.. but don't try to label me as ignorant about history because you don't like my opinion.

    I certainly hope you are not ignorant about American History, but you are definitely ignorant about the content of the leaks. He did far more than leak the minor things you mention, which are not even noteworthy. He put American national security and American lives in jeopardy. He also put the lives of many innocent people and their families into danger.

    He's a piece of slime and I have no doubt he will face an unfortunate end.

    What did he leak that put the national security in danger? I vaguely remember something about Russia, and there was the middle east wanting us to attack Iran. I can understand how that would upset them.. but the fact is, they were for it. Supporting it didn't bother them, us knowing what they support doing is what bothered them and that is funny...

    Right off the top of my head, he leaked secret information on an electronic IED jammer that our military has been using. Think that has the possiblity of getting some soldiers killed in Afghanistan??

    He also leaked the names of Afghanis that helped the NATO forces by supplying information on the Taliban's movements and identities. Think that will put them and their families in danger ??

    I could go on, but hopefully you have the picture now.
