ACLU Comment on Julian Assange Arrest by ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union)

Any prosecution by the United States of Mr. Assange for Wikileaks’ publishing operations would be unprecedented and unconstitutional, and would open the door to criminal investigations of other news organizations. Moreover, prosecuting a foreign publisher for violating U.S. secrecy laws would set an especially dangerous precedent for U.S. journalists, who routinely violate foreign secrecy laws to deliver information vital to the public’s interest.

From my perspective, the USA stopped being a constitutional democratic republic circa October 26, 2001.
