    Who's talking about TRYING him? I'm talking about taking him somewhere and making him WISH he was dead for about three weeks before granting that wish. Then feeding the remains to the Great White's off the coast of his homeland.

    If you don't want to put a suspected criminal on trial then you favor things that go against what our country is supposed to be about.

    Let's just say that I have a different view of "What this country is supposed to be about" than you do, and leave it at that.

    Doesn't the USA consider him an enemy combatant for helping the terrorists by releasing sensitive information and wouldn't that make him a prime candidate for Gitmo or one of the secret prisons in another country?

    Yes. He revealed that the USA was covering up a massacre of civilians by the US military, among other things. I am against gov't secrecy, since it is usually about cover ups and not technical, strategic, weaponry, or intelligence related secrets. It is my personal opinion that 99% of whistleblowers are heroes, and consistently persecuted by our gov't police agencies. We are attacking the wrong enemy repeatedly.

    I find nothing wrong with uncovering some horrific truths of our governments atrocities. I think the American people have the right to know when our government is going to far, and we shouldn't punish those who bring secrecy to light.

    Those of you who want to try him under treason laws fail to understand treason. He is an Australian citizen, so that would disqualify him from that charge. Now espionage may be another issue, but we simply don't know all the facts. We're only being told what government officials have been telling us about Assange.

    Secrecy in government is something that we should never condone in the United States. You simply cannot have secrecy in a free and open society. We shouldn't hate Assange for bringing some of that to light, but our government for having them in the first place.
    Too far for what?

    All he did was complicate international issues and humiliate foreign-officials (not just our own) - he didn't uncover **** that 'we needed to know about' - he was just a ****ing douche who wanted to cause a problem. There was no focused whistle-blowing. There was no deep undercover investigation to reveal a deeper truth about some well kept lie or something.

    Don't fool yourself - and then try to fool others - he did nothing of the sort.

    And your view on secrecy not being allowed - geesh - it's not *against us* that we do such things - it's *for our betterment* - if we didn't try to keep things secret how do you think WWII would have really ended? Not well for us, that's for sure.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    He complicated issues by showing that they were lying. Thank you.

    Don't fool yourself. He showed that they were liars. Publically. Thank you Assange.

    Keeping lies a secret is a good thing since when? If the citizens knew that the gov't knew three days before the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, what would the reaction have been? Secrets just protect some deadbeats ass, 99.9% of the time. That's reality.
