Senator Dianne Feinstein Calls for Julian Assange to Be Prosecuted Under the Espionage Act

The argument against Assange and WikiLeaks seems to be coalescing around the notion that the more horrendous the truth, the more essential it is for the public to remain unaware of it. Like many others, I’m unconvinced of the merits of WikiLeaks’s diplomatic cable dump, but on the whole, I support WikiLeaks.

The bottom line is that I think we’re better off knowing too much of the truth than too little.
