Encourage leaks? Who? Me?

Julian Assange: I didn't do nothing wrongWikiLeaks founder c says once again he’s done nothing wrong in releasing secret U.S. documents, noting he’s never asked anyone to take the classified material.

Assange, in an interview with CBS’ “60 Minutes” scheduled to air Sunday, denied encouraging anyone to leak the secret U.S. military and diplomatic material.

Assange’s latest comments come in response to a U.S. criminal investigation into how WikiLeaks obtained the documents. Assange has called that investigation harassment.

Federal prosecutors have subpoenaed details about the Twitter accounts of Assange and Pfc. Bradley Manning, the Army intelligence analyst who is in custody and is suspected of giving WikiLeaks the classified documents. Attorney General Eric Holder has vowed that anyone found to have violated U.S. law in the leaks will be prosecuted.

    “Attorney General Eric Holder has vowed that anyone found to have violated U.S. law in the leaks will be prosecuted.” …extract from article

    It would be nice if the AG had “fire in the belly” to go after the crooks on Wall Street, large center banks and the mega-insurers like AIG for their activities which were tantamount to fraud and conspiracy to commit such. I know some folks will say, but they didn’t break any laws. Bullsh*t I say! If the government is doing their job then they have the power to indict a ‘ham sandwich’ if they come up with irregularities of which I’m sure there are many.

    Holder is another running dog for the shadowy powers that be; ie., Goldman Sachs, J.P. Morgan et al. Have and have mores are immune from prosecution…no?

    Many governments promise “transparency”, but Wikileaks publishes what they are really saying in private. It’s a real eye-opener.

    Julian Assange is a hero!

      If a single American service member got so much as a hangnail from this foriegner’s releases, Ass ange should be drawn and quartered….

        So far Jim0001 indications are that his leaks had absolutely zero impact on the theaters of conflict or any service related hangnails or deaths.

        The one’s suffering hangnails or worse are our wheeling dealing, flim flam Dept. of State personnel from Hillary on down. It’s not called ‘foggy bottom’ just because of its location in D.C. either. / : |

    It would be nice if Holder would prosecute Pfc. Bradley Manning instead of letting him rot in solitary for the last eight months. They say it only takes six months of solitary confinement for a person to lose their mind. How much of Pfc. Bradley Manning will be left for trial?

      Maybe that’s their intent ; ie, to destroy Manning’s ability to testify in any coherent manner, thus protecting his supervisors or anything else that will shine a light on their shufflebutt, comcenter op/s. Possibly he won’t even make it to trial.

      We’re witnessing the face of true evil, the snarling beast of a failing empire along with its corrupt leadership biting its tail. Seemingly their PNAC scheme for a Pax Americanus, unlike Rome’s 200 years of such has fizzled out within two decades or less. It must be the water whereas in Rome’s case it was the lead in the cookware, goblets and clay water pipes. They ended up mad with us seemingly just suffering terminal “what me worry” stupidity. : |
