    Freedom of the press, freedom of speech, etc. also require of us to exercise those freedoms responsibly and not do anything that may hurt someone else because that infringes on their rights. I heard someone say today that the newspapers and other news agencies in the US published some of these documents when provided with them and that this was not being a "good citizen". To me that is the biggest understatement of the whole situation.

    All the information Julian Assange and Wikileaks released is available on a dozen other sites out there. Only they have subscription fees to the tune of 60-100K a year for access to the information. Aimed at corporations, the 'crime' is that wikileaks turned innformation that was making a choice group of people alot of money in to public domain. Where it was supposed to be and is under law but through manipulation was kept controlled. U might compare it to the music industry but that doesnt really work because music has copyright. Assange wasnt breaking any copyright. He just rained on the gravy train of the elites.
