What Assange was indicted for

Robert Graham explains.

I'm not so sure that passwords had to be longer than 10 characters back in 2010, but really don't know.  Good explanation of the technical details.

Our noble class now has an even worse problem. Now they have him... what are they going to do with him? Publicly burning him at the stake wouldn't work, the peasants are ready to revolt as it is. All around the world the wrong leaders are being elected, and as soon as one dissident voice is silenced on the internet, 100 others spring up.

I think they may be 'Tommy Robinson' him. He'll be told to shut up and go away, or he will be found having committed suicide with a nail gun and seven spikes in his noggin.

Glen, people are already speculating that he might be able to shed some light on Seth Rich.

Thanks for posting the explanation for the indictment.

It is too bad that the Bard isn't around to write a play regarding the political actors of the last ten years.
He would not lack for material: greed, long term plots for power, assassination, sex change, corruption in high places, corruption in low places, sons with questionable heritage, betrayal, treason, sedition...
The story writes itself.

So he's getting arrested for assisting Bradley Manning, who got pardoned.

I think there's more to this than just assisting Manning, considering the congressional IT personnel that got off scot-free and their congresscritters who protected them, all the congressional staffers who have leaked classified info, leaked to them by their congresscritters, all who have gotten off scot-free.

Sounds like they found a reason to bring him here. Now we get to see what is actually going to happen, if anything.

Could this be used to re-arrest Brad and finally nail that nasty little bug to the wall?

So it appears that even though his "journalism" led to the death of American, there was no crime, or not much of one.
How about Accomplice to Murder.

Yes, the password requirement was already longer than 10. Just sayin... And Assange is not, nor has he ever been a 'journalist'...
