- He took on the Church of Scientology, the Mormons, the Bilderberg Group, and Sarah Palin and few people cared.
- He revealed US military secrets about Guantanamo (2007), Iraq, and Afghanistan. The Pentagon only kvetched a little.
- Conservatives who now want Assange murdered once cheered his climate memo leaks.
- The State Department knew what embassy cables were going to be released months before the leaks. If they were worried about those leaks they would have attacked Wikileaks long ago.
The search for Osama Bin Laden never reached the global efforts to capture Assange. The worldwide effort to silence Wikileaks exceeds everything ever done to shutdown al Qaeda's extensive cyberspace presence.
The World War against Julian Assange is frightening but it only happened after Bank of America was threatened. What we can assume is that BofA has more dangerous secrets to hide than the US government.
