Sometimes he looks like he has a kind of Elric of Melnibone thing going on (if Elric was dressed by his mum)

God damn it.


Take it easy. We're talking about his clothes.

Anyway, looking forward to the next release, apparently its about Bank of America.

And it will become harder for the US to gain the trust of allies in the future because of the spying program disclosure. (Not that it was ethical)

It's not like there's huge amounts of new stuff that's been revealed, but the "open window" so to speak is quite revealing, particularly in the pretty much constant fact that the US government says one thing in public and does/feels the exact opposite in "private." Perhaps that should inform a discussion of how apparently the government has refused to help edit the releases to protect people - they'd rather deny it and then lambaste Wikileaks for not editing.

I'm sure the sex charges are partly true and partly trumped up - the timing DOES seem rather convenient, and it DOES seem the only reason this guy would get girls, based on his style, is if a) he has money or b) he's got international notoriety. Either way, though, Wikileaks needs someone to be their public face who's a little less... dramatic and controversial.

Manning, who did far more for Wikileaks than Assange ever did, will never enjoy his life again.

I don't think the leaks in question are big surprises....

Gordon Brown a weak PM?

Sarkozy a control freak and Berlusconi a pervert?

Saudi sponsoring terrorism and wanting to destroy Iran's nuclear capacity?

British Royals being rude and obnoxious?

CIA spying on the five members of the security council?

No way...

What's next?

George Michael is gay?
The last is virtually identical to an acquaintance's Facebook post on the topic.

Really?

I didn't know George Michael was big in the States...

It is a further proof that these Leaks are no surprise to any person with some superficial geo -political knowledge..

Is Russia really a rogue state?

Yeah, that one should be quite entertaining. Lynch mobs in NYC, anyone?

Hm, I get the most breathless, slavering and in-depth reporting about Wikileaks from the Guardian online.
