I think this thread hits the nail right on the head! Well done.

I think the thing that I didnt agree with about the thrust of the thread was the assertion that Assange didnt like it that information was being released about him. However i listened to the 25 minute interview in full and he pointed out that in support of his belief that he wouldnt receive a fair trial in Sweden the Swedish judiciary were releasing snippets of information which might prove predudicial to his case. Fair comment if you ask me.
The irony is that Assange is accused of releasing disinfo (when he is in fact releasing genuine documents) and he was highlighting the hypocrisy of that argument to the interviewer as Sweden are releasing details relating to a forthcoming trial.
As for the argument about the information simply drying up, that is possible, but out of all this the goal in my opinion is to make the decision makers accountable in the future. It needs transparency and proper journalistic investigation by the masses to ensure that the interests of the many are put before the selfish interests of the fewedit on 21-12-2010 by eyestotheskies because: spelling

I haven't seen this. Care to point me in the right direction? And one document among the hundreds of thousands he released pertaining to the US is still quite a huge number to argue with.

So, all you can do is spout personal attacks and not add anything intelligent or constructive? What are you going to do next? Call me a meanie?
