  •  Thank you again for telling us what is going on. (8+ / 0-)

    After finding out that Wikileaks & Assange are now "enemies of the state", your reporting of their unconstitutional crimes could get ugly.

    Prayers and blessings to you.

    Jesselyn, how do we combat these things? I've written my Congress Critters and Senators, I've written letters to the editor (never published) and they send me their customary form responses.

    Are there not any legitimate Judicial employees that have read our damn constitution?

    If I ever found out that they were unconstitutionally collecting my information, I'd scream first and file as many charges as I could, but since it's secret, how do we prove they're doing it?

    Is it any wonder our government's approval ratings are at unprecedented levels?

      As usual, most of the reporting related to the assange case falls into compost-heap quality.  And gotta love the sensational spin in the initial report, too -- a document about a proposed charge against someone suspected of leaking data that didn't even mention Assange and which never even went to court got spun into "The US military thinks Assange is the same as al-Qaeda and plans to execute him".

      And anyone else here amused at the irony of using a document gotten from the Freedom of Information Act to argue that the US is keeping too many secrets?
