Are you saying that Assange, before knowing the identity of Manning, somehow used Manning's love for GaGa to make this story more accessible to popular web habits of the common "teenager"?
No...I do not think Assange was clever in using Gaga's name just to promote his website (or this story) more.
He would have had to know Manning before he even whistleblew...
No I'm not saying what you are implying at all .I am not saying anything of the sort . These stories of Manning and Lady GaGa have only surfaced since Assange finished his dealings with Manning and Manning was incarcerated .These stories are not more than two weeks old .Manning isn't exactly giving interveiws from a millitary prison is he ? These stories a recent creations .I am simply saying having the Lady GaGa tag will give this story a lot of traffic . That's logical .You are implying that I am putting the horse before the cart , not at all if you can understand the chronological order I just placed them in . If you don't like Assange that is your right .Even I sit on the fence with this guy so please don't put words in my mouth or imply that I worship him .

The human race doesn't need Assange or his rinky-dink trap "Wikileaks" to blow lids off of scandals and conspiracies.
