Whistleblowing was once encouraged several administrations back.
If wrongdoing is found should it not be exposed ?
Or are certain institutions above the law ?
Condoning law breaking in the name of "National Security" is a slippery slope.
It is not a violation of law to expose violations of law. Similarly, you can't be guilty of violating the law if the investigators violated the law to begin an investigation. That is why many guilty people "get off" on technicalities.

Yeah, that sounds like some good reasoning to create an international incident, huh???
"Mr. Assange, we've had to feed your cat twice now and now he's peed on the fake Aztec relic we stole from the Mexicans! Plus, you've been using the internet to access ATS after 10pm again which is not allowed! We told you about this for the last time...now GET OUT!!"
