Julian has been charged with conspiracy to commit journalism. The free press has not ducked a bullet here; it’s taken one to the chest. 1/7

Additionally, Manning “copied a Linux operating system to a CD” HEAVEN FORBID and provided Assange with part of a password to a system she already had access to and ask him to crack it and he didn’t succeed. FAIL 7/7

Governments don't much like the truth being out there. Our own is currently busting a gut to gaol whistle blowers for revealing the truth about Government authorised spying on one of our nearest neighbours and friends for profit. Assange will get no help from the Australia.

Jesus ! A journalist defending Assangdy. This is new. I notice British journalists (the country he's actually been arrested in) are painfully quiet. Not much speaking truth to power.

Every investigative journalist present their case with facts figures and documents. And to do that, they must dig into it and get hold of it. Julian Assange is no exception to the rule. I support Juluan Assange.
