If you follow the link as suggested by the topic poster and read about this man you will probably think why not? His media award by Amnesty International is a good starting point. xoxosmile.gif 
So he's won some awards, including the one you mention from Amnesty International. Does that then excuse him from having to answer to sex charges? I think not.

WikiLeaks reveals cable identifying 'sensitive sites'

By Mary Beth Sheridan

U.S. officials expressed outrage Monday after WikiLeaks released a State Department cable that listed sites around the world whose "loss" could "critically impact" the health, communications, economy or security of the United States.

The cable, from February 2009, was part of an effort to compile an international list of infrastructure sites for the Department of Homeland Security, which maintains a similar database of domestic sites it seeks to protect from terrorist attack.

The State Department cable listed many obvious sites -- various countries' dams, bridges, mines, underwater communication cables and oil pipelines. But it also identified specific factories that are key producers of vaccines and weapons parts.

"This is really irresponsible. It is tantamount to giving a group like al-Qaeda a targeting list," said State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley.

And he has threatened to release the encryption key for even more sensitive information, which he has already released to the web, should he be arrested.  

This is hostage taking, plain and simple.  Any credibility his argument might have had that he is trying to facilitate government transparency, is completely undermined by this threat.  

His intentions and sentiments are clear.
