Assange is a smug, arrogant, self satisfied anti-American punk.

If you want to continue to believe that wikileaks has noble motives and goals you deny what the site and person have said about themselves. They want to be the sand in the cogs. More anarchy than open, more selective than full disclosure, see the MIT Technology Review article. Assange is not "about letting sunlight into the room so much as about throwing grit in the machine." Everything You Need to Know About Wikileaks

Wikileaks and Assange have changed the way we interpret information governments around the world want us to hear. World media often get leaks of public information. Sometimes, govt only gives hte information they want us to hear while hiding the real truth of the information. The war in Iraq and Afghan was based on lies. The great majority of the media in the US who were embedded with the war effort prints only those news the government want us to hear. Thousands of innocent Iraqis died in that particular conflict, thanks largely to Assange for leaking this information out.

there's no excuse for censure. the only way to promote responsibility is through openness and transparency. more lives are lost on opaque policies.

The same people who, as an attempt to justify the constant intrusion of privacy, tells us that 'as long as you have nothing to hide why do you care if you are filmed and every move recorded for every single second of your life' go absolutel...y bananas when the spotlight is reflected back on them. All the secrecy they enjoyed for so many years produced several world wars, countless economic disasters and continuous decline on the standards of living for at least the last 40 years (i.e. Negative correlation of working hours, wages and inflation).

Saying war is good for nothing is wishful thinking which flies in the face of history. War is very good if you're fighting for freedom or to end oppression. Even when wars are commercial, the victors reap great profits. Both sides suffer loses, but that's not the same as saying nobody wins. Everybody recognizes some justification for war, even if those justifications are diametrically opposed. As for shifting blame for endangering lives away from Assange and toward the government, I could just as easily argue that we're fighting for oil overseas because environmentalists won't permit drilling in Anwar for the sake of a few dozen caribou. You seem to be saying that even if Assagne directly costs the lives of American soldiers that it's the government's fault. Assagne pushed the over a cliff, but the U.S. put them near the cliff in the first place.

I think he should be able to release any reliable information he can find as long as it doesn't endanger lives. That's the litmus test. I must add that this is the most poorly run symposium ever since so many people's questions were inaudible.

First get your facts straight. Assange is an Australian. That's why he's not in the basement of a US embassy begging for his life.

The only reason that there are any lives in danger, is because our governments put them there - not WikiLeaks. Our sons/daughters/brothers/sisters/mothers/fathers who are fighting in foreign lands FOR CORPORATE INTERESTS, should be home with their families where there belong.
