WikiLeaks death wish?

http://www.time.com/time/world/artic...028283,00.html

Say what you will about Julian Assange, founder of the whistle-blowing website WikiLeaks, but his work has shown him to be pretty fearless. After his site published the biggest cache of secret files in U.S. history on Oct. 22, detailing some of the ugly truths about the war in Iraq, he continued to travel around Europe despite U.S. reprimands and warnings. He even told the global media that new leaks would expose more secrets not only about the U.S. military but about other "repressive regimes," such as Russia and China. The signals coming from Moscow, however, suggest that the Russian reaction will not be as reserved as America's. So is WikiLeaks really ready to take on the world's more callous states?

Hey, if the guy got information that shows some of the BS that's gone on out here, feel free to air the dirty laundry out. Now if some of that information can compromise a current mission, especially the safety of some of our troops currently deployed, you get whatever is coming to you...

The US is planting the seed that the Russians or someone else will be to blame when he gets killed...but, in reality, some CIA spook will pull the trigger.

That would make me feel better about us. We'd be putting our money where our mouth is, but not tipping our hand, as it were.

Give me a dollar.
