Thanks for the link

I liked this one - US first amendment end times: Library of Congress blocks WikiLeaks

So many runs so little time.

NP!

Here's an interview he did today with the guardian... Julian Assange answers your questions | World news | guardian.co.uk

and an excerpt on UFO's: Asked whether WikiLeaks had ever received documents relating to UFOs, he said: "Many weirdos email us about UFOs or how they discovered that they were the antichrist whilst talking with their ex-wife at a garden party over a pot-plant." However, he said, none had yet satisfied the twin publishing criteria: "that the documents not be self-authored; that they be original."
But he added: "It is worth noting that in yet-to-be-published parts of the cablegate archive there are indeed references to UFOs.

some low level computer geek that is in the army hacked into the files and compressed them and burned em to a cd.

being in the army; he had a security clearance. but he shouldn't have had access to all these type of secret documents

But how does this guy get all this information. And I assume its credible...
Private First Class Bradley E. Manning, a 22 year old intelligence analyst, is charged with disclosing the Collateral Murder video, and is believed (by the U.S) to have leaked the 260,000 diplomatic cables.

Manning has been called a hero by the whistleblower behind the Pentagon Papers, Daniel Ellsberg. Manning has said he hopes the release of the videos and documents would lead to "worldwide discussion, debates, and reforms."

According to chat logs, Manning brought in CD-RWs containing music, which were subsequently erased and rewritten with the leaked documents.

Clearly a fifth grader could outsmart military security protocols. As far as I'm concerned he did you a favour by exposing the vulnerability

Hackers are often hired by governments, Nortel and news agencies after an offence, not through any well-intentioned memo. All levels of government are already reevaluating their security systems, so while your point isn't lost on me, I'm merely pointing out that a necessary biproduct came to fruition. Better this generally valueless release than something truly damaging.

On another note, Ron Paul had my vote then, he has my vote now

Typical Aussie politicians. Selling out another citizen.

PM has betrayed me: Assange

So many runs so little time.
