Comment Re:Assange lacks integrity. (Score 1) 527

We know that Manning's indiscriminate collection and divulgation has caused damages,

"We just can't prove it or actually point to any damage, or have any evidence of damage, but we just know it!"

Sorry friend. That kind of logic is not persuasive.

Pray ask Gates/... directly how they reconcile the fact that the indiscriminate nature of Mannings collection and release of information were indisputably harmful and the the claimed absence of damage from them.

That one answers itself: they can't point to any actual damage, but anything that exposes US war criminals is bad, m'kay?

My statement was more about principle, rather than this particular incident. In this case the person admitted to having the password and was seeking to extort payment, that is problematic (the information was not theirs to sell, they did steal the by denying access to it by the proper owners). The hardware, well, the employer has to prove it is theirs and the contractual conditions under which they gave the employee that hardware, before they can try to claim it back. Obviously they did not simply claim it was stolen, hence it ownership is questionable, they can only really sue for it's return. Google is still largely at fault for the problem, they simply did the cheap thing, fobbed it off and failed to deal with it properly.

Manning will still be a convicted felon and traitor

No. Manning was never charged or tried for treason. She's a convicted felon, but in no way a traitor. More than one active duty general and Defense Secretary Robert Gates have admitted that her leaks caused no damage except to the reputations of war criminals.

Consider the alternate. Which other parts of you body are you content to smear your faeces over and then consider clean with simply wipe with a piece of paper. Hell, you wash your hands and law mandates you wash you hands if you work in a kitchen and that was with a piece of paper between your hands and you faeces, yet you are content with your non-self cleaning butthole and surrounding contaminated regions. Get used to it, the change is very likely to spread no matter how much the dead tree ass wipe companies fight it. Logically it should be compulsory in food preparation areas and hospitals, no so much for the butt but for the hands.

Most of that stuff went off balance sheet for uses other than was intended, extortion and investments ie managing the funds of criminals with the off balance sheet CIA hedge funds taking a substantial portion of the profits and the targets accepting making very large deposits because they get some returns and it is better than nothing and losing all their ill gotten gains, also tied into some very disturbing sexual practices part of the extortion and partners in high crimes thing.

Only invisible if you are one eyed and blind. Flooded New York, melty Alaska, eroded coastlines world wide etc. I mean see the ice, see no ice, not invisible. NASA do monitor temperature via the infrared spectrum, so not invisible either. What you are really saying is it does not affect you personally at this time and screw everyone else you don't care, you want more of everything right now, not just more, but you want it all. You here much but all you listen to is your own greed.
