Rereading some of my posts I stumbled on something that I want to amend. In the post 'WikiLeaks' I wrote:
Even if they take out Julian Assange with a bullet or drone strike or that bullshit rape allegation I want to make sure that as many people as possible can access this information.

Emphasis added after-the-fact to the part I feel guilty about. It was completely hypocritical of me to simply dismiss those charges. I think that Michael Moore explained a much more sensible stance to take when he defended his decision to post Julian Assange's bail on the Rachel Maddow Show. Basically; while Assange deserves a chance to defend himself those charges still have to be taken very seriously.
