and fell into the black hole of MSM:

Part of the Problem is it's technical; another part is: will this Administration or any of the regulatory agencies do anything, like prosecute?

The leaks are criminal, not photogenic or sexually shocking.

4. You're right -- I did miss it. I was wondering if Asssange was hanging on to it
as a "get out of jail" card if the US (or other countries) go forward with prosecution. I know I would if I were he, and I certainly wouldn't fault him -- or anybody -- for using that to stop a railroading.

But thanks for these -- eagerly going to check them out! :hi:

11. Funny how all there was all this faux outrage by the US and calls for Assange's head...
but when Wikileaks releases the info about the banks...

not a peep. it just gets buried. not a word reported in the MSM.

that was my point. I should have been a bit more clear.

7. No one wants to help the competition, right?
It makes the M$M look bad... no investigative qualities remain.
