"this is putting americans at risk"

The rich americans and wealthy class sure are worried and scared of Assange and wikileaks
its no surprise CNN is joining the joint government attack on Assange.

I Fully Support Assange now.

This is hilarious. He was given the information. He didn't hack or steal it. Instead of prosecuting those who have been revealed to abuse their powers they go after the messanger. Discusting

Ex post facto laws applied to criminal prosecutions are unconstitutional in the United States. They can't make a law against a journalist publishing leaked documents, then go after Mr. Assange or WikiLeaks for something done prior to the existence of that law. I very much doubt that such a law could be enacted, even now, anyway. The espionage act doesn't apply to journalists. Mr. Assange is not, so far as has been shown, the agent of a foreign power. The Sine qua non standard might apply to a criminal conspiracy to steal government documents, but not to behavior that is not prohibited by law. Case law shows that publishing leaked documents is not, in itself, considered a crime. Ross

How can they still be holding him in jail. The people that made the allegations against him flee the country, so no witnesses, no way to prove the allegations against him, thus he should be released. Now I'm not sure how the legal system works over there, if anyone knows please add, but he is simply someone who released files. He is not a spy nor should be charged with espionage those could be charges laid against the person who gave Assange the files or stole it themselves.

Are Americans this dumb?
How was he spying? He received documents and published them (never once claiming them to be his own either). He did not gather the info. He was not directing what info he was to recieve. He has used them for no illicit purpose but to inform the wider general public what a toilet the USA is.

There are a number of sites that claim Wikileaks HELPED Pvt Manning get the documents to Wikileaks.
that help is what the charges will be based on as it is conspiracy to commit espionage.

If the US government can prove this HELP they have a case.

And the US has Pvt Manning
who can if given curtain favors in his case testify against The wikileaks founder.

Claims are not facts. Often, they aren't even a satisfactory basis for legal accusation. I've read an interview of Adrian Lamo, who turned Pvt. Manning in. He says Manning had technical help from another source, but does not name it. Rather vague. If there is any more definite claim being made, involving Mr. Assange or Wikileaks, could we, please, see a link to it, or at least a web address where it can be read? Thanks. Ross
