Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, the man behind the publication of more than 250,000 classified U.S. diplomatic cables, could face spying charges in the U.S. under the U.S. Espionage act.
Hiscontends that it puts all media organizations at risk but activating rather than repealing the act, contending that the government will now take the actions in the future to censor papers and reporters through using this old legislation.
IMHO this argument is utter idiocy. In fact the newspapers who published the cables actually had the Pentagon and State Department redact the cables for security purposes. Assange is being prosecuted for illegally obtaining the cables for the express purpose of promoting his own goals.
