The story is too old to be commented.

I hope Wikileaks continues to deliver the information the American public is asking for

Ya, while I feel both sides have a valid argument in the end the government is accountable to the people. The power is in the people, and the politics are an extension of us...which by no means is true at all anymore. So it shouldn't be the governments decision whether these leaks are a danger to the people. Which in the end is proof that it its probably only dangerous to the politicians and not the people themselves.

"To convey information with intent to interfere with the operation or success of the armed forces of the United States or to promote the success of its enemies. This was punishable by death or by imprisonment for not more than 30 years or both."

The only issue is it is yet to be determined if the enemy has gained this type of advantage from these leaks. But there are so many ways to make this guy disappear, especially since he is revealing information that OTHER countries do not want revealed.

It is not about America's restraint, but what about the restraint (or lack thereof) of other nations that have been offended by this? Mercenaries work for cheap, that's all I'm saying. This guy will be lucky to live another 5 years.
