Does anyone else get the feeling that the US cares more about catching Assange (wikileaks) than it does about catching Osama?
They can hunt Assange down with great speed and efficacy, but apparently Osama is so much harder.
I totally agree. Actually, something seemed odd about Osama from the beginning. Bush immediately said he wasn't the priority. We had him, and let him go. We came up with everything we could think of to turn the focus away from him. The entire hunt has seemed strange from the beginning.
You think Osama might have been the equivalent of Goldstein in 1984?
Yeah, it's pretty disgusting.
The whole thing reminds me of the music/movie/tv industry's pitiful attempts to cling to the past. Wikileaks, TPB, and their ilk are the future and we're never going back, so fighting them is futile. As the Site-That-Shall-Not-Be-Named says, We are Legion. Adapt, people, adapt.

WikiLeaks is involved in uncovering many hateful activities of the US government. In this respect would it be justified to restrict their activities by the US government?
