And of course, he'll probably get it.
Afterall, they also gave it to Osama Bin Laden.

Time Magazine never fails to disappoint.

From Time Newsfeed

There was a time that diplomatic dissension remained behind closed doors.

No matter how much ire international governments display, the damage has been done. Sunday marked the arrival of another quarter-million dispatches via The online portal has planted Julian Assange as the mastermind behind government misconduct reaching the forefront of public consumption.

What about computer hacking and theft? That’s OK? What about further endangering our troops? That’s OK?

Quite a bit of debate over what he is doing and while I'll have to admit that I am a little torn, in the end my verdict is that he is dead wrong and must be stopped


Reason, because war is wrong!
... BUT, there is no way in hell any left winger can ever guarantee that for every weapon we lay down in the name of peace, the enemy will do the same.

In fact, they'll probably take the opportunity to regroup and even pick up the weapons we lay down as we bow in submission.

Same for the this Assange character.
If he can guarantee that the enemy will also leak their classified documents, (if they have any) and post them on the internet for all to see, then I would say YES, what he is doing is for the greater good for all of Mankind, not just for Islamic fundies.

Considering the damage Assange is doing, I'm not so sure Obama would agree with you on that.
Nor would Hillary for that matter.

would also like to show another
article by CNN that shows the secret life of
Julian Assange.

there is both good and bad in it
so I guess they gave both sides at least

I would laugh my @r$e off if
Time gave him Person of the Year


he was on Interpol's most wanted list
at the very same time.

When in history has that ever happened ???

folks just love a rebel

just ask James Dean

They gave it to Osama (checking to make sure the name was spelled correctly with an 's'),
so don't be surprised if they also give it to the power drunk Assange, who now appears to be in over his head.

Although, TIME needs to decide what they plan on doing with him first.
It's all about control.

Ok,so this guy tells people about documents that are ten years old and information pretty much anyone can find out with alittle thinking power of where to look. Everyone talks like this guy is the end all man of the world and his information could destroy everything,give me a break you dont even need a security clearance to get that info.
