If you're counting on the common sense of the American people I suspect you are going to be sorely disappointed.

In agreement with Michael McCollough. The American public is fascinated with Fox/Beck /Limbaugh. Fox news has taken some important, positive, videos of Assange/Wikileaks mission and intentions down, claiming copyright. Americans have made their own brains into jelly by not investigating other media sources and caring about their goverment and what is happening Internationaly. If the press and especially investigative journalists does not stand up and include sources like Wikileaks in legal protection, then they might as well take up another profession.
Perhaps running a copy machine for government intelligence agencies. At lease we would not wonder whose pocket they operated from.

This is only classified secret to the American public who pay the bills in blood and money -borrowed in our name.
The victims, the "enemy" knows damn well what the US is doing to them, as does most of the rest of the world...
