Julian Assange and Wikileaks have no First Amendment Rights relative to free speech.

You are incorrect. The First Amendment protects anyone being prosecuted/sued in a US court. If Assange can be prosecuted in the US, he can use the First Amendment as a defense. It's not that the law applies to the whole world, it's that it protects people in US courts, regardless of their citizenship.

Remember wikileaks can only leak what is given to them.
And it seems US has the biggest numbers of Leakers/whistleblowers/traitors ect.
In Russia or China such people meet very quick demises.
If Manning had been Russian he would have likely got his sex change operation from putin with a pair of rusty scissors before being given a polonium cocktail.
The UK and Germany did get some diplomatic cables released.
Can you give an example of that?
