"If they want to push the line that when a newspaperman talks to someone in the government about looking for things relating to potential abuses, that that is a conspiracy to commit espionage, then that's going to take out all the good government journalism that occurs in the United States," he said.
"Whoever the terrorists are here, it's not us," Assange said. "But we see constant threats from people... calling for my assassination, calling for the illegal kidnapping of my staff.
For that reason, he later said, "these two alleged victims have to be treated very seriously and Mr. Assange has to answer the questions." (Assange hasn't been charged with a crime, but has been asked to answer questions in Sweden about the claims.) "That's not what's at issue here," Moore continued. "I'm much more concerned about that there is a concerted attempt to stop WikiLeaks."

I live in the US and I try to stay very active in politics (because a lot going on here worries me) but I have to be honest - I don't know WHAT is going on here.
I think Houdini is in charge.
We have had nothing if not a huge mostly successful attempt at redirection on the whole Wikileaks fiasco.
If I go out on the street today, and talk to 100 people, maybe **1** might have accurate facts on the case, and will MAYBE know something they've heard in the media about one of the actual cables themselves.
It is not legal to incite murder in the US and at the very least it looks like some FCC regulations have been broken. Maybe some of us need to complain along that route. I don't know.
Dyncorp is getting by with pedophilia again, the Sales Dept -uh, I mean State Dept, is getting by with conspiring to starve 250 million people...I could go on and on.
I am CONFUSED. Man I am confused. All my friends even want to talk about is the rape stuff and specifically now they want to argue over was it rape-rape like Whoopi Goldberg uses the term or was it like some other rape? They don't know. Is he a pompous Butt or what? They argue over that.
I am like a deer in the headlights here and I'm afraid there's an oncoming car.
I wish I could answer your question about what is going on in the US. Mass confusion is all I know. The US public seems to have been brainwashed years ago that we are the best, nothing bad can happen here, the govt. has it all under control, we'll crush anyone that bothers us, life is mostly good and will never change because WE ARE THE BEST - HOOO HA! - now the economy is crumbling, some are starting to think "WOW, it CAN happen here!" People are mostly stumbling around -I'm probably one - but most folks don't want to get out of bed.
There's a HUGE sense of disempowerment in the USA. For all the chest beating and patriotism, most people honestly don't want to know because 1. It hurts their little heads to think and 2. they really, deeply feel that they can't control anything anyway.
