A few hours ago, Julian Assange gave a press conference at the Frontline Club in London on Wikileaks' release of the Stratfor e-mails:

And what about when they're talking about when to release information like massive voter fraud?

Surely that means they're in bed with TPTB.

no, what companies like this do is get involved in illegal activity. They get paid with our taxes. We have an obligation to stop them. They should all be put in jail, along with everyone that does business with them.

Time has come to respect us a people. Corporate impunity is at an all time high. That must end.

Not sure what you are getting at?

The voter fraud email is something the citizen should know about, just like a lot of the coming emails, I'm sure.

Those affected that are innocent (see simple subscribers to the services whose information is being released) are just collateral damage then, right?

Oh, but the military does it all the time! LOOK AT THE WARS WE'RE IN!

So, I have to ask - stooping to that level is what you're seeking? Somehow, two wrongs are making a right? Ethics be damned, all of a sudden?

The line is quickly being blurred between good guys and bad guys.


Yes collateral damage just like when you drop a cluster bomb in a residential area in Tripoli, credit cards can be cancelled, arms and legs dont grow back

My point is, how is that indicative that they're working for/with TBTP? It seems like they were trying to figure out the best time to announce this revelation. Certainly a company in the back pockets of the elite wouldn't even think about letting information that could put their puppets in jeopardy get out. Much less discuss when they're going to release it. Not even "if", but how and when.

And that makes it ethically sound to you? A lesser form of a wrong is still a wrong. I thought someone with such a strong moral compass as yourself would realize that.

As well as stealing the date, Anonymous' statement went on to claim that the group had already used the stolen credit information to donate $500,000 to a number of unnamed charities.
O.O

I'd personally like to see multiple threads to single out the important revelations that come out of these releases in their own spot in the 'News Forums' section.

There's a lot to sift through… and I arrived late.

The story surrounds the company from your neck of the woods


Perhaps a Forum would be nice.

Thats just plain funny. i mean crime is not funny and those people are bad people, but thats still funny.

At least some of the cash might be going where its meant to be going for once.

And how are the people whose personal info is being released involved in any of this? Some of them may be people like yourself who were just interested in an analysis of the global theater. Not everyone that had a subscription to the service was some bigwig executive thinking of the next way to screw over the sheeple.

Let's say you are privy to information that one of your neighbors is a serial killing pedophile who kills 2 little kids a week.

Let's also say that the only way to stop him is to break the law as it is currently written.

I don't know about you, but I'd stop him in a heartbeat.

And we aren't talking about one guy who kills 100 kids a year, we're talking about a corporate owned government who kills tens of thousands.

Almost any of us here would gladly sacrifice ourselves for the good of our children and our grandchildren, it's human nature and that IS what this all boils down to!

He didnt steal it

If some guys steals a paintingt and emails you a picture of him giving it the big thumbs up on a distant island and you publish it, that does not make you responcible for its theift

If you were at a cocktail party and somebody came up to you complaining that she had her entire family kidnapped, tortured, had her house burnt down along with having all of her possessions confiscated, and is now living everyday in fear of being killed just for existing...
would you reply with "Yeah, I totally know what you mean. I had my identity stolen once!"

No, wrongs are not all equidistant from right. It is very insensitive to say otherwise.
