I had a feeling about this

While I, in most part, supported the whole wikileaks thing, the more I watched it, the more it started to seem like the whole thing was staged. I started to get the feeling that Assange was given a lot of money, nothing he released was really all that damning and all the posturing by the government was just a dog and pony show. Now, I think I know why:
US supreme court justice Sonia Sotomayor has said the court is likely to have to rule on the issue of balancing national security and freedom of speech due to WikiLeaks posting a cache of US military records about the Afghan war.
And so it begins....

When Mr. Wikileaks tipped his hand by castigating all 9-11 truth-seekers, I pretty-much was convinced that he was a false-flagger.

So here's where several Bill-of-Rights summarily get crapped on by the nine whores of the Supreme Court ... all in the name of national security, of course.

Be afraid, be very afraid.

Not necessarily, Dan. Didn't the court rule that Ellsberg had the right to leak the Pentagon Papers? They at least ruled that he couldn't be prosecuted so i's the same thing, in effect.

Here again we will witness the perverse prevarications of the most mendacious, insipid, bigoted, racist, fanatical religious right of the GOP, which has for so many years demanded judges that were supposedly "strict interpreters" of the Constitution. If they have succeeded this Supreme Court will follow the mandates for a free press and refuse to allow prosecution of this leaker just as they did, historically, with Daniel Ellsberg.

Had Nixon been able to obtain a favorable court ruling censoring the leak and printing of the Pentagon Papers and/or allowing the prosecution of Ellsberg for doing the leaking then there would never been a break-in to Ellsberg's suite/office at the Watergate Hotel and Watergate itself would never have happened.

So let's wait and see if we now have a court that will strictly interpret our constitution.
