I consider myself a great friend of the United States of America. I support and cherish the ideals of freedom contained in the Declaration of Independence. Over the years I also created a lot of business and a lot of money for american companies. I consider the USA my second home. 

Yet I am a supporter of Wikileaks. I support wikileaks because I believe governments, including the US government, must come clean and adopt transparency. 

Mr. Manning (the whistleblower who allegedly stole the confidential cables) IMO has not been a man of honour: he broke a sacred trust. He was a soldier. He shouldn't betray his group. 

The position of Julian Assange is different. I don't know the man, so I don't know if he is a good person or a bad person. I cannot tell. If he molested other women, it's not ok. 

However he is right in publishing the cables. Let the governments of the world be transparent. I am against confidentiality and secrecy by governments. If their dealings are ethical why should they keep it hidden?

The United States should know better. Don't prosecute Assange for publishing the cables.
