Interesting to see how many people here believe that its US pressure on Sweden to extradite him, my opinion is that of the same as a lot of you, to me its so obviously clear that these charges are politically motivated and Kaiserhawks comment was interesting too, how with all these world criminals out in the world we see so much effort and global team-ups on a man who simply embarrassed the US and some other nations as well (not to the extent as the US with the delegates comments) Personally I think these leaks are important, there showing the people what the governments really are like behind closed doors and we the people deserve to know, I do agree some information is risky to publish (the list of US security risks they themselves made) but majority of these leaks aren't really all that dangerous, and its not Assanges fault, as Danimal said, he's a journalist himself, its people inside the American government who are leaking this information and the US is trying to make an example of Assanges, and his arrest and threat of extradition is fueling public outcry, hell even an organisation calling themselves "Anonymous" (yes, most of find a joke in there) and this organisation has already cyber attacked PayPal, MasterCard and Visa websites because of Political pressure to freeze Assanges accounts. I can only see things getting worse if Britain were to actual give in to Sweden (Us pressure even?) to extradite him and some of the comments coming from American outcry are rather sad, there are people calling for his assassination... I wonder how well educated those people are in whats actual happening regarding these leaks. (And by no means was that an attack on America n general, I'm merely referring to certain comments I heard on the news)
I'm not reading that novel, I'll just assume you said something great, and Agree with it.
Good point friend.
