This should be interesting to watch.
i was too lazy to read. whats goin down?
http://www.c-span.or...s+Briefing.aspx <--Video from the Pentagon (This video is 47 minutes long.)
http://www.viddler.c...lub/videos/459/ <--Julian in this video (This video is 1 hour and 29 minutes long.)
Basically, WikiLeaks has some DoD (Department of Defense) documents that they released, and they have 15k more records they're ready to release, and the Pentagon is telling them to get rid of it "or else". This should be fun.
Moved to current events
Also pretty cool stuff
all they're gonna get is
Error: 404 - Arguement Not Found
Jesus christ. He just said in part of the video that there could be up to 125 people on the task force working on this. That's hilarious as shit. We're not worried about the economy. We're worried about leaked documents of old missions, since there shouldn't be anything going on anymore since we were "working for democracy." If I'm not mistaken, democracy is already in effect. So what am I missing here?
how does this have anthing to do with WWIII?
lets break this aes encryption and see what the fuss is about
lol. If you want to spend the time breaking AES256 for a document that you could possibly get in trouble for having in the long run, if this does turn into something big--you go for it. Julian isn't a US citizen, so he doesn't have to worry about what the US government would do. They still have to extradite him from the Australian government to even prosecute him here, regardless of what they want to do.. and I really don't think the Australian government is going to care that US documents got leaked. They're probably laughing at our government right now because of all of these documents that got leaked, and no one was checking up on the guy that leaked them. It makes me giggle like a schoolgirl. They can't touch him, or the servers that the data is stored on, without having to go through like.. 3 or 4 different countries. Also, that article was saying something about the Army hiring Russian hackers to take it down, but it's like it says later in those articles that Wikileaks has survived through one judge shutting down their site, and then having to open it back up because of the 1st amendment. How that happened, and Julian isn't a citizen, is beyond me. However, there are loopholes. I.E, if the site was registered in the US, but the hosting is somewhere else. US has control over the domain, but not the servers it's hosted on. Lot of legality shit involved with this that they probably haven't thought of yet, and they're throwing threats out to Julian and the community saying that if they don't delete it, that there may be action against them? That's like going to Defcon and telling all the hackers that they're being arrested for what's being taught to them, if they don't delete it when they leave. How are you ever going to find out? They could transfer it to another disk as a backup, hide it somewhere, and boom--there's a hardcopy for when they get out of jail to release anyway.
Edit: By the way, for those of you wanting to know: There was 77,000 documents already released--with these 15,000 still being withheld. Sooo, yeah. Go figure.
Didn't bother reading it all, but I am laughing at how stupid some people can be.
Yeah I know, people love making fun of the US government, but do they really think leaking classified and confidential files is going to end well for them? Colton, you say he's not a US citizen? Ok, so they charge him as a terrorist or something with the reason being that he's threatening national security. :rolleyes:
Doesn't matter. They still have to extradite him from Australia, meaning Australia has final say over whether the US can touch him, or if Australia will prosecute him. If he gets prosecuted in Australia, they might just give him a slap on the hand, and let him go about his merry day. Australian laws are no ways like US laws, in no means.
Colton, trust me they will send him to the US, we are the backbone of their defense. If shit goes down hill in that part of the world were going to help them by a treaty we signed back in WWII. Don't think their gonna want to run the risk of us backing out of the treaty for a lowly hacker. Australia has much to lose if they dont send him over to us.
plus what's stopping this guy from leaking Australian's stuff?
I wouldn't mess with the Us gov., not with something like this. This Idiot just put a big ole' "kick me!" sign on his back.

I knew there was a good one I could think of.
lol @ the comments saying U.s. protection in a war. in Australia ? seriously who'd travel 12 hours to fuck that place up ? xD
Well i remember that in WWII Japan did. Just saying since you asked who would and theres your answer . Also on a sidenote, it kind of stands where the indian ocean meets the pacific ocean so that also. Would make a nice base to use for expanding in either direction.
Australia doesn't have anything to lose. Australia's government is the same as the UK government. Same queen, everything. Go wiki it. So really, I don't think Australia cares. They have 2 countries on their side, verses our one.
You know people can go missing very easily or just end up dieing from a car crash etc right?
That's what I was thinking. broski is gonna end up ODing on some drug that all his close friends/family never knew he took.
lol I doubt any country is going to go to war over 1 guy. I HIGHLY doubt england would go to war over 1 guy who isn't even in their own country.
Hell Canada gave up Marc Emery to the US, I'm sure Australia will give this little hacker up.
BTW all Marc did was sell plant seeds, this guy is giving out US documents, I'm sure he's gonna learn "not to poke the bear".
