  •  So the cure is to appoint himself (0+ / 0-)

    the one who takes not only THAT information but literally every single other bit of information he could get his hands on and hand it to a foreigner?  Sorry, this point doesn't sell.  Moreover, I've watched that footage many times.  One thing I noticed was that during the initial encounter the background chatter was to the effect that there were American Humvees nearby and whoever was looking at it on the feed clearly believed he was looking at weapons.  So I've never bought the idea that the initial shooting was a deliberate murder, but more the fog of war.  But that asshat Assange LABELED it a deliberate and calculated murder and ran around selling it as such. As to the second attack, that's far more problematic, but still, we don't know the entire story behind it.  Looks criminal, yes, but a lot of so-called simple crimes really aren't.
