What if what he/she has doesn't really do anything for us, but puts a whole lot of people in danger?

This could really be anything and we want it released without kowing what it pertains to?

If its videos showing illegal acivity then I say release them. Doesn't matter how he got them, he should show them.

But we don't know what it is and that is very dangerous. I don't know this guy and am not comfortable with him making this decision.

Current time in Las Vegas is 9:15 AM, and J.Assange is expected today at 4:35 PM at Ballroom 3&4 in the Las Vegas Sun (2360 Corporate Circile, Henderson NV 89074) for the IRE 2010 conference.

We just have to wait a few hours to see :
- If he will be really here : proof that he is not hiding. And interesting to see if some "black men" comes too.
- If he don't come : Proof that he is hiding. Because his presence was confirmed, and that will mean that he have to change his plan at the last moment.

IRE Conference details schecule is accessible here
@cupocoffee : i don't give any crucial information, it was published today on their wikileaks twitter account.

Why wouldn't America, and in particular the Pentagon, not need to go after someone who is about to release classified communications in a time of war?

Why is this imperative seen as something sinister...or an attempt to cover up evil doings? In a time of war, any combatant nation is involved in all kinds of activities that it cannot afford to have revealed to its enemies.

I am sure that if this guy was about to release a raft of Al Qaeda emails, he would have Osama et al up his butt too!

This guy is Australian, an American ally with people in harm's way in Afghanistan. Depending on what this guy is threatening to release, this action is possibly treasonous.

What is wrong with people on here cheering for a guy that might cost lives of the guys fighting on our side?

Of course, as said earlier, I don't know where previous commentators hail from....
well because. in America we are supposed to have the right to know these things. they can call these "national security" documents, but what they could be is proof of lies, fabrication and damning evidence against the Government WHICH IS WHY THEY DONT WANT IT LEAKED!

Infact I would wager the reason this is taking so long is because wikileaks is going to be careful with what they post. The government WORKS FOR US THAT IS THEIR JOB. It is not their job to LIE AND STEAL

The last thing I heard from Julian Assange was that wikileaks was sitting on "History making leaks." I think it will be highly probable they will come through. Wikileaks is no fool. From what I have seen they create fail-safe plans to release sensitive documents just in case someone try's to stop them.

Could these "history making leaks" be related to disclosure of aliens? I'm sure they have more to do with military and backroom govt business but it would be interesting if this ends up being the event/leak that exposes the truth about alien involvement with this planet.

I can only hope.

Maybe Julian Assange IS an alien!!! He sort of has that "I'm an alien living in the body of a human" look about him. Maybe this is how he is able to elude the authorities.

Time will tell...or not...whatever.

Hi Hulk:

Yes I understand that eventually all Government activities must be held up to the light, and if people in positions of power are engaged in illegal activities, they must be held accountable. In the U.S. I think you have procedures (Freedom of Information Act?) that require that Classified documents must eventually be released to the public.

However, I think that in a time of war the rules are somewhat different. There are a lot of things that are not, and should not, be made public because of the possibility of thwarting battle plans...or the possibility of putting friendlies in harms way.

Of course, I think we would all agree that if Wikileaks has video or emails pertaining to overtly illegal activities (like, say, soldiers murdering civilians...or stealing property from locals...or something), and that do not endanger national security - they should be able to blow the whistle.

Because we live in the free world, and we have rules that require our political leaders to held accountable for their actions, we can sometimes seem to be forcing ourselves to play right into our enemies hands.

These are not easy issues to deal with, that's for sure.

Imagine the range of topics this could blow the lid on, if these cables contain such damaging info.

9/11- what if messages relaying knowledge or info surrounding the events before 9/11 took place are in there?

Terrorism- Information surrounding Al Qaeda, Osama Bin Laden etc. Bin Laden's location or knowledge of his death etc. Collusion between western forces to create terror networks in order to maintain the wars. CIA and covert drug smuggling operations.

Iraq and WMD? We all know they lied, but did they discuss that in these cables?

Iran? Nth Korea?

And.....
Alien Disclosure.(come on, this is ATS, had to be said :lol

Prince warns Saudi royal family to leave

People, the #'s about to hit the fan!

What these leaks could do is implicate all the Zionists in the US collaborating with Blair and the Bushes for 9/11.

I'm sure the Prince knows this, not only that... but a lot more crap they've done that's about to be 'SPILLED' like how BP spilled oil. LOL

I'm not actually sure about wikileaks, the last video released by them I couldn't really fault the military for anything but being over eager I don't think it was actually that much of a big deal an accident but these things happen.

If they were about to release any UK files that threatened National Security in any meaningful way I'd actually support an assassination and it's about the only thing I can think off where I would.

Unless these are mind blowing change the world files the guy should probably just hand them back, otherwise it's not worth the risk he's taking here.

So no matter what is in these cables everyone is just going to buy it?

I smell a rat. What could they be trying to pull? This could all be BS.

Anyone remember this
from a couple days ago?

He may not have it.

The govt. said - publically - that they wanted to catch a major whistleblower.

Manning is 22 years old. He's their public whistleblower.

Assange does not seem to be the type to worry about money - unless said money is going to some organization that needs it to further the cause of open transparent information and govt. I doubt it.

He may not have it - that might just be their excuse for wanting to capture him.

In any event, he looks like someone I met once, at a hacker convention, that I had a long talk with, and I decided that I liked. I'm not 100% sure it is the same person but I'm pretty close to it - I hope they don't catch him. I'm hoping that he is half the angel that he looks like.

I'm sure there are both positives and negatives that could come from the release of all of this information. One one side, it may reveal the identities of moles or operatives around the world, putting their lives in danger and risking national security; on the other side, it may expose corruption and illegal activity. Are people willing to cause some damage to expose corruption and crime at the highest levels? I'm quite sure most are. Personally, I'd like to see this go through, because as most of us understand, there ARE sinister events going on that the public is strictly not to know about.
