Quote of the Day
In my role as Wikileaks editor, I've been involved in fighting off many legal attacks. To do that, and keep our sources safe, we have had to spread assets, encrypt everything, and move telecommunications and people around the world to activate protective laws in different national jurisdictions.
Wikileaks didn't help confidence with American administrations because of conversations made public so easily.

If I had some information, the last thing I would ever do with it is send it to Wikileaks.
As we have seen, WikiLeaks is a robust organization. During my time in solitary confinement in the basement of a Victorian prison, we continue to release, our media partners continued to write stories. The important revelations from this material continue to come out. We have approximately 2,000 cables into 250,000.
WikiLeaks presents a clear and present danger to the national security of the United States.
I also urge the Obama administration - both on its own and in cooperation with other responsible governments around the world - to use all legal means necessary to shut down WikiLeaks before it can do more damage by releasing additional cables. WikiLeaks' activities represent a shared threat to collective international security.
WikiLeaks is designed to make capitalism more free and ethical.
In the history of Wikileaks, nobody has claimed that the material being put out is not authentic.
Wikileaks is a mechanism to maximize the flow of information to maximize the amount of action leading to just reform.
Julian Assange, the WikiLeaks founder, has on several occasions talked about transparency as an absolute principle. I don't personally believe that.
You know, in the WikiLeaks cables, the Chinese discovered that Kevin Rudd was urging the Americans to keep the military option open against them. This is hardly a friendly gesture.
People intrinsically know there are secrets being held from us. Look at WikiLeaks: There are secrets that are really true to the world.
Julian Assange is certainly no hero. The man behind WikiLeaks issued threats as if he were Dr. No bent on ending civilization as we know it. We will find him, lock him up, and throw away the key. But give the man credit; for a week the truth was laid bare.
