Unhappy Welcome to USSR

This used to happen in communist Russia, now it's taking place in Washington

US may pass new law to prosecute Assange

Thats crap. Ex post facto states that one cannot be charged with a crime if it wasnt illegal when they did it.

You're right, which is the reason why they worded it so that if he does it again he gets snagged.

The Espionage Act which they are going to try him with is 93 years old and needs an update.

Yea the article talks about how the Act has major loopholes that protect Assange. To actually make it better they need to re-word a couple of sections so that Assange and papers like the Washington Post can be held accountable if they post secret material.

Yes, let's take more freedoms away b/c the state department is too stupid to keep their chit chats confidential.
