this is quite interesting found this article on aussage getting a book deal.. thought i would share.

On Monday, New York publishing firm Alfred A. Knopf told the Associated Press the company had signed a deal with Mr. Assange for his autobiography “prior to the holidays.” Assange, who masterminded the Nov. 28 release of a flood of secret US diplomatic cables, told The Sunday Times of London the deal would bring in more than $1 million. He claimed $800,000 would come from Knopf and roughly $500,000 would be paid by British publisher Canongate.

“I didn’t want to write this book, but I have to,” Assange told the Sunday Times. He claimed to have already spent the equivalent of $310,000 on legal costs. “I need to defend myself and to keep WikiLeaks afloat,” he told the paper.

aware of govt. corruption.

But, it makes sense when a country is at war not to release documents that will put our troops or other civilians in harms way. He deserves what ever he gets.
