Ironic and hypocritical for the young Icelander. He joins Wikileaks when his nation was at the height of it's economic woes, the very same nation who
actually arrested corrupt bankers and politicians, but then he later contacts the US embassy willingly wanting to become an informant while also
pocketing money he makes off of the Wikileaks name.
Eh, Manning released information he felt the world should know about. Now some people over exaggerate and try to say Manning put military members in
harms way but I see no evidence of that what so ever. He did sign many contracts to never divulge any secrets to anyone, especially a foreigner, so
he was fully aware of the consequences. Manning wasn't seeking compensation when he gave Wikileaks all of those gigs of information. Was it worth it
in the end? I don't think so and now this young man will forever be behind bars.
Assange and his Wikileaks, god bless them because clearly these gov'ts, all of them, are corrupt, immoral, and down right evil so it's nice there's
some sort of checks and balances no matter how small.
Btw, that comic pic is so small, I cannot read it.
