Few things..some answers various posters have asked, some corrections...
I know of only 1 wikileaks member, head of operations in Germany, that defected because he did not like the direction wikileaks was taking. This got
twisted in the media to 'some members.' Only one- that same one- was ever quoted or reported on. Julian also stated he was the only one.
No one hacked into anyone's computer. Assange certainly didn't. The media wants him linked to 'hacker' to confuse people not willing to really
follow the facts closely. Assange is pure brilliance and has written a lot of the code, strategy, and encryption for the wikileaks project. Bradly
Manning, if it was him, did not hack into anyone's computer. He had legal access to the documents, found them horrifying, and as an act of civil
disobedience copied them with a thumb drive to leak them. When Elsberg took the Pentagon papers, that's what the Supreme court said he did - not
theft, but an act of civil disobedience when faced with government injustice.
Yes, there has been a call to resistance of sorts. On Twitter, supporters are encouraged to tweet with #imwikileaks as a hash tag. Techies all over
the place have copied and mirrored those documents and are actively working to counteract censorship.
