The guy that wrote the pedophiles handbook getting arrested on obscenity charges... It is as if they're working together to destroy the first amendment in the name of public saftey.In that, whether he knows it or not, I think he is a tool. A well used tool, but a tool nonetheless.Now, the rape allegations...Why put yourself in a position where there might be any question? If you were truly working for the common good, and truly believed in your cause, you would not have put yourself in a position to be accused of rape.I think the Wikileaks furor, the pedophile handbook obscenity charges, the rape allegations and the net neutrality legislation have all been orchestrated by the same organization.Tell me I am crazy, I'll most likely agree.

It just seems to me to be too convenient. I am sure that our govt had sent some moles in to keep an eye on them thats just the way the CIA rolls.

And the U.S. Government was offered complete control over redaction (within reason, we have to assume). They turned it down, probably to safeguard their ability to pursue a prosecution that will never happen anyway. So they would rather take the chance that something harmful be released than appear to cooperate with Wikileaks.Goddamned stupidity. For that volume of information to be leaked, their data security had to be a great big joke -- not markedly different than just releasing it themselves.As always, no one gets fired. No one ever gets fired.
