It would be interesting to see what Assange would do if he were approached by someone he believed to be an Al Qaeda turncoat offering information on their future operations.

I would love to see some enterprising journalist or maybe even the FBI put him to the test to see what he would do.

Ask your self honestly what do you think Assange would do if he was aware of a ticking time bomb somewhere?

Al Qaeda doesn't need to attack us any longer, we have destroyed ourselves. Our reputation in the world is shattered, we are flat broke. When we invaded Iraq and Afghanistan we were doing exactly what they wanted. Bin laden succeeded beyond his wildest dreams.

The might army of Al Qaeda all 100 or so of them that train for war on monkey bars, whose leader Osma "supposedly" was still calling the shots from a broken down home, with no communication abilities , an extension cord necessary to watch reruns of the I love Lucy show etc- apparently he was using the Camel Express to give orders to his might army- They knew our ego would bring us down, we declared war on? and for what? we waved that flag in the wrong direction- 19 guys- 19 horny half pilots- have put us where we are- seems there smarter than we are-

Perhaps homeland Security can give him a "snitch of the year" award. Hopefully his dual citizenship will help Manning (his mother is Welsh), as he has no chance for a fair trial from the military who are hungry for revenge and don't care how they get it.

The evidence against Manning includes several laptops, a hard drive and a device used to link computers to the secret military system where the documents Manning is accused of leaking were available. These items were siezed from his quarters. A computer hacker is expected to testify that Manning confessed to him that he downloaded the documents and gave them to Wikileaks.

Down below I made the point if the acquittal system operates in military court martials and there's one gay on the jury, Manning will be acquitted. I wasn't trying to be funny, I was just pointing to the wealth of evidence showing gays are a sex cult not a traditional minority.

In California that judge who ruled against a repeal of the ban of the same-sex marriage law should have recused himself because he's gay. The rule of recusals says if the public might have reason to believe you have a vested interest in the outcome you must recuse yourself. He didn't and the reason he didn't is because his loyalty was to the gay community not the general public.

Yesterday an American spy was captured in Iran. The fact that Manning's release of 250,000 documents to Wikileaks may have caused this capture means nothing to the gay community; they still consider Manning a hero; they still believe he "did the right thing."

My point of course is that when gays talk about same-sex marriage, gay adoption, DADT, Transvestite school teachers, the nomalization of homosexuality in school curriculum, the innocence of Bradley Manning they're talking about things that will benefit the gay community not the general public on the whole.

How happy for us that we can all sit back and discuss a whistle-blower's fate. How civilized. Our government is becoming more and more secretive, declaring in some cases that they can legally say that information does not exist, even if it does. They are trying to gut the freedom of information act, expanding the patriot act, and basically attacking our RIGHT to information at every turn. The law that Manning broke was an unjust law, but that doesn't matter. What matters is he should not be in prison. He did a good thing. The people of this country have a right to know what their government is up to. That is a democratic right, and if it is taken away, our votes become even more meaningless than they are now.

In 1919, the U.S. Supreme Court unanimously ruled in Schenck v. United States that the Espionage Act did not violate the freedom of speech of those convicted under its provisions. Citizens have no right to download and disseminate military and diplomatic secrets. You might have an argument if Manning had released only information about an incident or incidents he considered war crimes, but he released everything he could get his hands on wihtout regard to its content or the damage it might cause.

I don't think Orwell's only target in 1984 was "Socialism" or "Communism" 1984 was a thinly veiled commentary on post war Britain with a few sci-fi tropes like video screens added in to throw TPTB off the scent. 1984 is really about Britain in 1948.

Manning, is accused of leaking hundreds of thousands of sensitive items? How is it humanely possible he would know the nature of that many documents? He either did not send out hundreds of thousands, or he was reckless. If he did give that much out, he is like a spammer just riffles of anything and everything. And his noble sincerity would have no credibility.
I have a lot of question as to Manning motives. I’m not so sure he was not just looking for attention. And as for WikiLeaks. From the looks of this, I’m not sure It’s were one would want to blow a whistle at.

Not true. Due to the information released we have had to relocate many individuals and their families to prevent them from reprisals. And God only knows the amount of recruits who joined various terrorist entities due to the spin of the released information by various media outlets.

Is this just an exercise to see how truly gullible the American Public is and how they can be manipulated? He is a Pfc. Do service members of such low rank really have access to Top Secret information with no supervision? Are there not security measures in place to prevent this in the so called greatest military in the so called greatest country in the world? Something smells fishy and the word scapegoat comes to mind.

They do have access to that information, especially if they have been cleared for TS/SCI level information. It helps to do your research or actually have experience with these things, something that at times is lacking in many of the comments here. That is not meant to denigrate you or your comment, however.

In other words, for upholding the Constitution that he swore to upheld, he is being labelled a traitor and worse. While the real traitors and chickenhawks go away scott free and publish memoirs that claim to explode heads in Washington.

Going after Manning and Assange forms a nice distraction and takes away one's focus on the real criminals of the Iraq War. Play to the simple minded, jingoistic, bigoted, and authority loving tendencies (not all in one person, I'm sure) loudly enough and you can sweep the real crimes under the rug. Where is the outrage against those who knowingly (or otherwise) got us into a war that cost us ~$1 trillion, thousands of American lives, tens of thousands of Americans wounded, hundreds of thousands of Iraqis killed and injured, and made it possible for Iraq and Iran to embrace ever closer (at least Hussein, our poodle once upon a time, kept Iran at bay and from thinking about nuclear weapons until we decided to go about traipsing in their backyard)...

If Iran gets a nuclear weapon, you can bet it will be aided by Iraq and the two will join together to a former a superstate if Iraq doesn't degenerate back into a civil war again. What a mess.
