Julian Assange, Julian Assange, Julian Assange

Did you know that by merely posting his name to my blog, that my blog now becomes suspect according to a new subpoena by the U.S. attorney general's office? Any website which has any connection to Julian and Wikileaks is now suspect.

Exposing the truth will always harm liars and help honest people. (And the U.S. is not the worst liar on the Wikileaks chopping block , by far. Looks like Yemen and Aghanistan are the title holders there. )

Perhaps the people who oppose Wikileaks the loudest are probably just the ones with the most secrets and the most lies.

Our news organizations have castrated themselves, and now do nothing more but parrot state press releases. Ethical, investigative reporting is a dying profession. It seems to me that Wikileaks is some sort of "last bastion", where the truth is freed.

Do we dare to live in a new age where "stat secrets" are not necessary - where we operate as a powerful nation who is proud of what it's leaders, diplomats and citizens are doing?
