  •  Huh? Let Assange and Snowden face the charges (1+ / 0-)

    against them.  If they don't, then they don't have the courage of MLK or Gandhi or Ellsberg.  

    I admit that Assange's charges are of a different nature than the ones against MLK, Gandhi, Ellsberg, and Snowden.  The charges against MLK, Gandhi, and Ellsberg are charges that they can arguably and/or legitimately be proud of; the charges against Assange, not so much.  Assange is more like just a common criminal, accused of an ignoble crime, on the run from the law.
