    If he actually sexually assaulted anyone, then of course he should be tried for it. As far as his 'betrayal' goes, who exactly did he betray? As far as I know, he doesn't work for a government or anything. He was given that information freely, and there was no expectation that he would keep it to himself. The ones at fault here are whoever leaked it to him in the first place.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    I dispute your poll. It's not my place to say whether or not he should be tried. If there's a law that government thinks he's violated, and they feel they have sufficient evidence, then sure... give him a trial. This doesn't mean I think he should be convicted, I don't have all the evidence they supposedly do.

    As for the Wikileaks stuff (not his questioning for sex by surprise or whatever they called it D, again, if they feel they can convict him then they can put him through a trial. It's not my place to say whether they should or not, we should put anyone through a trial who breaks the law.

    I do dispute the Espionage Act though, and as it stands think it should be gotten rid of, at least insofar as civilians are concerned, and certainly for whistleblowing organizations/news media. I'm open to discussion on this, if you have any points you feel I might be interested in please, by all means, chuck em down.

    So my position is neutral, as far as the poll is concerned.
