    Should Wikileaks release Bank of America documents?

    Found this article while wandering the web...

    Assange says Swedish accusers in a 'tizzy' - Yahoo! Asia News

    Near the end:
    Assange also confirmed that WikiLeaks was holding a vast amount of material about Bank of America which it intends to release early next year.

    "We don't want the bank to suffer unless it's called for," Assange told The Times. "But if its management is operating in a responsive way there will be resignations," he said, without giving details about the material.

    Shares in Bank of America have fallen amid speculation that it was a WikiLeaks target.
    So should they release the documents?

This, in my humble apprehension, it to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution." —John Adams

    Perfect example of my vigilantism is wrong, who gave him the power to decide whats right and wrong, or who "needs" and doesn't need to suffer.

    I'm torn on this one... as much as I'm curious to find out what BoA has done, if anything, I'm concerned that it could really damage BoA. If we hadn't bailed them out I probably wouldn't care either way.

    This guy is a hypocritical asshole of a thug. I'm sick of him flexing his "power" over nations and corporations. I hope he rots in jail for a very long time.

    If it's anything like the diplomatic cables, the "wrongdoing" is probably entirely in Assange's mind.

    Wikileaks should be fire bombed like Dresden.

    I would love to see a corrupt business exposed and destroyed. Then the magical market can prop up a replacement, and set the precedent that if you transgress, you will be punished. Banks should not have some kind of special treatment. If you break laws and hurt people, you pay the price.

    Now, if WikiLeaks is just trying to force some kind of leverage, that's equally uncool. Honestly, he shouldn't make it contingent. He should just release the information, so that the guilty can be brought to justice.

    What makes you think Bank of America is corrupt?

    And what "special treatment" are you talking about? The special treatment that a private entity's private papers are . . . private?

    I mean, the government would need a warrant to get them, and you think objecting to having them stolen and published is arguing for "special treatment"?

    Let him play his leverage, just like theyre playing leverage with his sex trial. Which is more about him being the wikileaker than it is about a sex trial. Exposing the corrupt? Fine with me.
