In an interview with CBS's "60 Minutes", Wikileaks founder Julian Assange said he loved watching banks "squirm" about rumors of his latest upcoming leak.  (Source: CBS)

Questions about Mr. Assange's motives (he has called himself an anarchist in the past) went unasked, as did the question of whether Wikileaks might be profiting off the stock shifts its leaks cause.  (Source: CBS)
Assange claims U.S. is utterly incapable of removing his site from the web

So, unless you're questioning government wrongdoing, you're not allowed to question? Ever heard of the phrase, "many mean well as they're sending you to hell"? I'm skeptical of everything! And the previous posters simply sound cautious to me. That's not the attitude of a sheep IMO. I am a big proponent of whistleblowing and was happy to hear of a website that gives whistleblowers a place to go (although the media has been in their corner for decades). Assange brings negative press to a good website and may end up destroying a very good thing with his antics. Let the site speak for itself.

Saying that the guy is "an anarchist, pure and simple" (to my mind) is not just being a little "cautious".

That guy's comment was perhaps the one that looked as silly as any that I have seen, mostly the calling Asange a "bully", which was just ridiculous.

My comment however, was aimed just as much at many people here, who just go along with the herd, and do as they are told.

Anyway, I don't know why you are saying that I have said "unless you're questioning government wrongdoing, you're not allowed to question?". I never said anything like that.

In fact, I think quite the opposite, and maybe (pom pom poooooommmmm) I think that morons writing gibberish and nonsensical shite (as I feel the person that I replied to was) about Assange being a "bully" (as if he or anyone persona can "bully" the US governments and large multinational corporations and banks) actually weakens reasonable questioning of what is going on.

Simply ranting about Assange being an anarchist and bully is silly, and pointless. Let's keep it reasonable, and not just swallow anything dished out from "news" streams that might well not reflect exactly what Assange might have intended his comments to say, and take them as gospel, dismissing him and judging him out of hand willy nilly. To do so, makes you look like a bit of a simpleton, and a sheep, IMHO.
