We have made a decision for your death. You have five days to leave Afghan soil. If you don’t, you don’t have the right to complain.
We feel confident. The material is seven months old; we reviewed it extensively. We held back 15,000 documents that we felt needed further review because the type of classifications they had. We've been publishing for four years a range of material that has caused the changing of constitutions and the removal of governments, but there's never been a case that we are aware of that has resulted in the personal injury of anyone.
quote: If the executed individual was in fact one of the leaked names than Assange (and Bradley) is fully responsible for their deaths.
quote: You probably don't understand exactly how the law works
quote: you are going to be convicted of that death.
quote: Any contributory act that leads to a deliberate murder can also be convicted of the crime.
quote: In theory this statement might be true. However, the vast majority of "contributory acts" are highly unlikely to result in a murder conviction. Driving the car in a drive-by is one case where you probably would get convicted. Driving someone to the location where they committed a murder is less likely.

quote: What is absolutely not in dispute is the lives of at least 70 people are ruined by terrorists in a different country that believe they can do or kill whoever they want as long as the claim in it the name of jihad.
quote: And what's absolutely NOT in dispute is the lives of at least 70 people are now ruined because of the leak.
quote: Prove it? That's not really the point - it doesn't matter if these 70 people are informants or not. Their lives are still ruined all the same.
