whether or not you believe the charges against julian assange are trumped up or not. we have to give it to matt drudge for running the headline of the week ‘horny hacker.’ today the guardian newspaper and politics today note that neither visa nor mastercard will allow their cardhold users to donate to wikileaks.
it is clear that if bradley manning downloaded classified info from the formerly most powerful country in the world, that he should be prosecuted. and maybe 52 years in prison isn’t quite long enough.
but for politicians to be calling for the murder of the head of a news organization. that’s just beyond creepy.
