Citing unnamed sources at the Department of Justice, the Times reports officials have that if they were to prosecute Assange, they would have to also prosecute U.S news organizations and journalists as well, calling their conundrum a “New York Times problem.” The Times published reports on many of the documents Assange provided.

Of course they would have to.

I think this is just a ploy to get him to ease up and face charges for the sexual assault (or whatever it was) and hope it's the end of it, but the US Eagle will swoop in for him.

This is hardly breaking news as the article is dated November 26th.

On topic, I see the reasoning behind this rumors but I highly doubt that Assange would get away unscathed if he were to step foot on American soil, or get caught at the wrong place at the wrong time abroad.

Chances are he will be dealt with out of the justice system...if you know what I mean.

Part of me still thinks he is part of one giant psy-op but that's another thread.

good news. How can you want to punish a guy that's just telling the truth? Shouldn't all government documents be public unless it's operationally unsound...like a military strategy and location of cia operatives in foreign countries? That's about it. Just about everything that Assange, Manning, and Snowden, to name just three, that they 'leaked" is stuff we should have known anyway...more embarrassing then anything else. Assange is a hero, and anyone who thinks differently is someone that has something to hide or doesn't love freedom. Period.

Can`t agree more. I`m also wondering how stupid they are to think that he will fall for the bait? Sounds to me like an act of desperation.

I know what I would do at the moment I stepped into the embassy...but won`t tell it incase he is thinking the same thing. Don`t want to ruin his chances if this thread is being monitored=)

DittO: Same goes for Edward Snowden. Its possible that Snowden feels enough of an accomplishment so far regarding world opinion against the actions of the US government under the guise of the NSA that he, like Julian Assange, might just be on a track to freedom as the whistle-blowers - not traitors - that they really are. It could very well be that there's a glimmer of light at the end of a very dark NSA tunnel for them both.

I didnt see article dated. IT was top of Googles search for Julian, so it's normally most recent.

MODS, move this accordingly.

Not a chance. No one should believe that a whistle blower will escape the vengeful claws of the US. No chance, regardless of what any MSM outlet suggests.

It's a trap. Edward and Julian to not fall for it.

For anyone who believes in goodness and light you'll have a better chance picking up those two unicorns on Craigslist for $900K.

Hang on, they would have to charge News organizations and Journalist. What ? What about the criminals, for the crimes exposed?

No, Julian ass ange r wouldn't be charged on this logic either, especially because he is one of them. NSA Honey trap.
Niether is going to happen.

"U.S. Says WikiLeaks Founder Julian Assange Unlikely To Face Charges"

Well that would be perfect, then they can treat him like the scores of other prisoners that are tortured and locked up indefinitely without charge. Or maybe they'll just wait til he's out and about and drone him.
Remember guys and gals, in today's America, charges don't matter!
