    The Wiki LEAKER is an American soldier...at least that's what he's been charged with.

    Yes?
    No?
    If you are talking about the Americans who leaked classified info to wiki-leaks then yes they should be executed for treason,those from other countries should be executed for treason by their countries whom they leaked classified info from. If you are talking about the guy who runs wiki-leaks, I think at most he can be treated as a spy and punished accordingly since he is not a US citizen. The the only people would be able to charge him with treason is Australia (assuming he has classified Australian intel on wiki-leaks). I assume you mean the American soldier who leaked classified info so I answered yes to the poll question.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    The leaker is an austrailian? I thought he was an American soldier?



    But yes, if this leaker is found guilty of treason in a time of war, the punishment is death.

    Though it was clear in the initial post... guess not.
    The correct charge is still espionage.

    It would be more useful to keep him alive in case he leaked other info that we don't know about yet. Also, he's pretty young and who knows what forces were manipulating him. In any case, I hope he has a good defense.

    But I do understand the primitive American need for vengeance and retribution, so he will likely die a needless death if populism has anything to say about it.

    As if you are so enlightened, please. Where is your enlightened compassion for the folk who are at greater risk due to this persons treason. There is nothing "primitive" here.

    How so? I'm pretty sure it's treason.

    I have no use for the guy, I hope he never sees the light of day again, but executing him seems to be going a bit far to my mind.

    why? if his actions caused the indirect death of one soldier, he should achieve room temperature.

    The Little Bastard is headed for a Court Martial . Can't imagine it not happening.
