    Congressman Sam Albert: [on TV] We knew that we had to monitor our enemies. We've also come to realize that we need to monitor the people who are monitoring them...
    Carla Dean: Well who's gonna monitor the monitors of the monitors?
    Robert Clayton Dean: I wouldn't mind doing a little... "monitoring" myself.
    Carla Dean: Yes, and you've got lots and lots of... "monitoring" to do.
    Eric Dean: Are you guys talking about sex?


    RIP Tony Scott

    Sure, the Swedish charges are trumped up, but the guy basically gave out sensitive infomation; it's like, God damn it I'm sure he knew what he was doing and now he's got to pay the price.
    He's a traitor to America? How does that work?

    The whole wiki leaks thing.

    Giving out infomation that he shouldn't have.

    It's like... You do that, fine, let the world know, but do you really think you're entitled to get away with it?
    He's a fugitive now and a refugee in some embassy for it.

    Treason: "In law, treason is the crime that covers some of the more extreme acts against one's sovereign or nation."
    Julian Assange: "Julian Paul Assange (born 3 July 1971) is an Australian editor, activist, publisher and journalist."

    Not what I was getting at. The point is in Nico's post.

    He's not American, so how is he a traitor? If Australia wanted to hang him up for treason, or even if the UK wanted to, that would be different. They're not the ones after him. He is not a traitor by the definition of the word, you may call him an enemy of the US, that's all, he's on the run from a country he has no allegiance or obligation to.

    Just because they call him that, doesn't make it repeatable.
    Especially when fraternising with said "enemy" carries a death sentence...
    Of course, the US is no stranger to unilaterally declaring war on its imaginary enemies. And creating real ones in the process.

    Indeed, which is why I say to ilikeitlikethat that "he may", I find the whole thing unconscionable, that an Australian like me can be threatened with being dragged to the US for releaseing documents they have deemed private, and as a non-citizen he should give a shit, because lets face it, they don't make em look good, and potentially be faced with the death penalty, something our country has outlawed, unconscionable. The US makes it's own global policies.

    They don't give a shit about this guy. They are just using him as an example. They're saying that they won't tolerate a non military, non citizen fucking with them.

    They aren't after him because of what he did being all that wrong. They're after him to show other people who might get the same ideas that shit will not be put up with.

    "You're either with US or you're with the enemy, there's no inbetween."

    Simple-minded folk need simple distinctions: Black/white. Good/evil. US/them. God-fearing Xtian/KILL IT WITH FIRE.
