    He wasn't giving classified documents to the enemy or providing them aid and comfort, he was giving them to a neutral third party.

    That's fair.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    Considering the fact this neutral 3rd party is showing it to the entire world he is indeed giving classified documents to the enemy. The soldier in question knowingly gave the info to a middleman who gave it to the enemy. Giving classified info to a middleman is as worse as directly giving it to the enemy.

    "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"

    This thread has been illuminating for the lack of reading comprehension.

    I think the OP was pretty clear (but I guess folks read the headline only), and then clarified a few posts down... THIS IS ABOUT THE MILITARY DWEEB THAT LEAKED TO WIKI-LEAKS... not the scum from Australia trying to hide in Sweden.

    Phew.

    He's not merely a spy... he swore to defend and protect this country and instead sold us out and jeopardized our security. That's betrayal, which is treason.

    I think he should be made an example of and executed. If not now... when?

    Giving it to the enemy and giving to the world aren't identical. If the enemy has an exclusive, then they know information we believe is hidden and can use it that much effectively against us. If it is given to the world, we have a mutual awareness and can develop counter measures.

    One signals that the U.S. soldier wants primary objective is to hurt the United States, which is treason. The other doesn't necessarily imply a desire to hurt the United States because he might believe it is overall in our best interests for the public to have the information.

    Ummm.... Why are you trolling and trying to turn this into a race debate?
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    He should be given a medal.
