But just what did the leaks accomplish? Were they simply released to piss people off? I mean, from what I have heard, pretty much the only outcome was harm to American/European relations? Neh?
I remember reading a very interesting article on this that essentially said Assange believes the governments are inherently corrupt and a scheme to make money, a conspiracy which he wishes to undermine. To that end, his goal is to get as many government secrets into the open as possible, since no conspiracy works without shadows. Unfortunately, I can't seem to locate that article, but I'll post it when I find it.
The only opinion I have on this is that Assange looks like an albino supervillain. That and it's pretty interesting to watch.
