I suppose conservatives should just stay out of this, because when your opposition is digging a huge hole for themselves, you shouldn't stop them. But reflexively, I do want to tell Assange to STFU.

I want Assange prosecuted under any number of laws. Marched into a 10 by 10 foot cell and left to rot.

Several “targets” in this release. Wonder if Hillary is one of them or just collateral damage?

"Wonder if Hillary is one of them or just collateral damage? "

I'm going with collateral damage. I think we tend to look at these kind of multi-national or international events with a (too) partisan filter. Assange and his ilk hate America, and everything it stands for. Just because Obama is at the helm, isn't going to change that (of course, Obama is too stupid to understand this). If the damage from Assange takes out Hilary or even Obama, he couldn't care less precisely because his primary objective is accomplished - diminishing America's standing and power in the world.

What is yet to be discovered, does Assange just hate America, or is his hatred nonpartisan, more along the lines of an anarchist. I think it may be the later, and it's a condition that is likely to be cured by the FSB, probably sooner rather than later.

I have 1 single zip disk I’ve been using since ‘96 with no problems to backup my web server.

I can’t count how many CD’s and DVD’s I’ve had to trash because of one minor scratch on them, many of those scratches caused by the CD/DVD storage cases themselves. Lost several thumb drives due to misc problems.

ZIP disks are low capacity compared to other solutions available now, but they sure are reliable. A lot of it has to do with that hard plastic protective cover they have.

However the life of my Zip drive is nearing it’s end because my next computer upgrade won’t have the old IDE connection to run the thing.

Assange is a sad naive little doofus. It's the job of diplomats to spy on the other side, to try to gain information that maybe the other side doesn't want them to have.

But I understand that Mr. Assange is about to mess with the Russians. The Russians don't have much use for sad naive little doofuses.

Assange doesnt believe what he is doing is espionage.

Even a lot of people on our side support what he’s doing. Go to some of the Ron Paul and Tea Party message boards and they like this Assange guy because they think he’s exposing corruption of the federal government.

Actually, at this point, it doesn’t matter what he says anymore.

I don’t know.

Another way to look at this is: it’s a convenient way for Hillary to get out of the administration just in time to set up her 2012 campaign infrastructure.

And she can say that Obama sided with the UN and she sided with America’s interests.

Just sayin’...it’s a possible strategy.

Drudge is pushing this, bigtime. He has been doing yeoman’s work exposing Obama, but he really, really hates Hillary, having been confronted by her during Monicagate. If she ever gets back into the White House, she will have his head.

And, I must say, I agree with him. She would be just as bad as Obama, but a whole lot smarter and more ruthless.

And a lot of this stuff isn’t even spying. It’s just reporting on what you’ve done, which is the essence of what the state department does. I met with so-and-so, and here’s what he thinks about this-and-that. The officials know their conversations are with the US government, they’re not under false pretenses.

What they DON’T expect is that they’re going to leak out in public.

I don’t think so. If she resigns after having done a wonderful job as Secretary of State (as all the MSM will say), then she has finally put something on her record.

But if she resigns because she was forced out by the left, then she is washed up.

I tend to agree with you. It could be one or the other.

The ultimate loser is the US. The NWO is achieving it’s goals.

And doing it without a shot fired, which doesn’t say much for humanity.

All media eventually degrades. I have an old Zip drive lying around in a box somewhere, haven’t touched it in ages. For backups I just use a USB external drive, with a mind to pre-emptively replace it every year or two.

Last time I had to back up a web server, it was in a corporate environment, so I just used the existing backup system there.

I’ve had excellent luck with a 4 GB USB flash drive that I carry around with me- I have been using it since they were expensive without issue. I am in IT, so I use it frequently.

“Go to some of the Ron Paul and Tea Party message boards and they like this Assange guy because they think he’s exposing corruption of the federal government.”

I think that there is some truth to that view. However, he’s also exposing a lot of sensitive info that very well may get people - a LOT of people - killed, up to and including lighting off some real instabilities that could turn into real wars and get real US servicemembers killed. That trumps the first part IMHO. By a lot.

How come no one is talking about the little faggot who gave the documents to wikileaks because he opposed the military for "don't ask don't tell".

I say that if PFC Manning enjoys men on men sex then he should be stripped naked and thrown into the toughest prison in the US and give the guards a 30 minute break.

He'll get a lot of pleasure out of that!

All Hillary has ever wanted to do is collect heads. That's what no one understands - they think they can get on her good side. The White House, Communism, Drugs, Treachery, Lies, Spying, Politics, Feminism, Healthcare - she doesn't care about any of them.

She just wants to kill, and kill, and kill.

The Elite are staggering morans - they think she needs them, and that she sees them as on her side, etc. She'll have their livers with a side of fava beans and a nice chianti.

It really doesn’t matter whether or not. Brezenski (Clinton admin) and Steven Hadley (GWB admin) were discussing this on PBS last night, and the consensus is that it is foolish for diplomats to NOT gather as much info as they can. It’s not the shocker it’s made out to be.
