Should Assange be eliminated?

The acts of WikiLeaks could be considered an act of war and its leader subject to the results of this. What do you all think should be done?

He is not in the U.S. and is hiding in a foreign embassy.

Weren't the Russians kicking him out? If not back to U.S., we should try to "get him" somehow (maybe we have been?).

You obviously have no idea what you are talking about, as seems relatively common. Likely you are thinking of Snowden. Might I recommend you at least take five minutes to gain some minimal understanding of things before making a fool of yourself.

My bad! One in a while I do indeed make a mistake (rare though).

I think the US Constitution should be amended so that Assange could be elected President of the United States.

Assange is a laundromat service for Russian propaganda.

As the estimable Assistant Secretary of the Treasury under Reagan has remarked HERE :

Quote:
Now the Ecuadoran Embassy is offering to send Assange to the Ecuadoran Embassy in Sweden to be questioned, but Washington, London, and the Swedish prosecutor have refused. They want Assange without the protection of the asylum that Ecuador has granted him....

Assange is Washington's enemy, because he let the truth get out. WikiLeaks is a journalistic enterprise, not a spy enterprise. It publishes information, some of which is leaked to it by whistleblowers, just as the Pentagon Papers were leaked to the New York Times. The information leaked to WikiLeaks has embarrassed Washington, because it shows Washington to be two-faced, a manipulator of other countries' governments and medias, and overflowing with mendacity.

If some foreigner looking to make a profit from revealing sensitive diplomatic actions, troop movements, state secrets, weak points in our national defence and selectively releasing politically compromising information that undermines America to Russia's gain is your idea of a populist hero...

I think you're confusing Assange (and probably Manning) with Snowden, an actual whistleblower who outed criminal activity by the government, vetted the information he realced to avoid all of the above nastiness, didn't make any money and took credit for his actions even offering to surrender himself for arrest so long as the government acknowledged it broke it's own laws. HE is the hero, not the Aussie worm.
Thanks from tecoyah and Cosmo

No, he let out classified information, which is enemy combatantous - plain and simple.

1.) I desire truth to be revealed, but I understand that sometimes in order to protect the populace, it mustn't be revealed.

(In this case, hiding the truth is good)

2.) I also realize that the powers that be will sometimes hide truth, not to protect the populace, but to protect themselves and allow their deceit and unscrupulous behavior to continue.

(In this case, revealing the truth is good)


Now, discerning the difference between 1 and 2 is not at all easy as one might think since, what we are talking about are hidden, and only revealed in parts and pieces.
Thanks from David and Aufgeblassen
