    as I pointed out in another comment above.

    Having said that, it's a pretty silly controversy. If you read the email, it's pretty clear that whoever wrote it is taking about "annihilation of the current regime" (which would have been the Bush/Cheney regime at that time) in the same way a Democrat might talk about "annihilating the Tea Party movement" by voting them out of office. A bit over the top maybe, but it's not a call for violence, but for political change/reform.

    Also as others mentioned, there's no name on the email anyway - it's from a list of dozens of emails from the Wikileaks mailing list, all which have the names blanked out. It could have been Assange, or some other member of the mailing list.
