War Criminal against US
Unsure but irrelevant I believe WikiLeaks motivation is justice
He is a spy trying to put Americans in harms way
I have no opinion
Because the threat that accompanies someone leaking classified information with no limitations is infinitely greater than the threat that accompanies a country seeking to downplay bad actions like every other country in history.Why is people spending more time criticizing Assange than the idiots who are covering up this bloodied mess?
People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
I refuse to trust the random person in the government just because they're in the government, and as I've said the "guidelines" have protected too much data strictly to keep reputations from being tarnished for me to care about them.
Well, I'm glad you feel better.
I've seen and studied the ugly side of our many bureaucracies and governmental departments often enough that I abjectly refuse to blindly trust someone whose face I'll never even see just because they have a badge or an ID card or a certification or a clearance.
That still doesn't answer the question, this is not merely a matter of downplaying actions (because these are serious allegations). We have found evidence of the US allowing human rights abuses to go unnoticed and we have caught the US government lying about the number of civilian deaths. The US government has a legitimate concern in regards to Assange, however, they are using this opportunity to divert the attention for there own crimes and people are buying into it. Where is the finger pointing at the US government?Because the threat that accompanies someone leaking classified information with no limitations is infinitely greater than the threat that accompanies a country seeking to downplay bad actions like every other country in history.
Unless the US government apologizes and takes the necessary actions to ensure the public such a thing will not happen again, they really have no ground to say Assange threatens troops when it is clear the government has no respect for human life as it is.
