FOXNews.com - WikiLeaks Founder Describes Possibility of Casualties as Acceptable Risk
"As far as anyone can tell, this has never happened," Assange responded. "When we deal with such serious issues and such [a] large amount of information, we have to accept the risk that it might, but this is balanced by the understanding that such information is also likely to save a great many lives."
It seems like the founder of Wiki Leaks has no problem releasing potentially harmful information even when warned by the Pentagon. I wonder if his opinion would change if someone posted his personal info somewhere or information was published that places his life in danger.But U.S. officials have said the documents could nevertheless endanger sources in the Afghanistan field. Defense Secretary Robert Gates said in an interview this month that the information was published "without any regard whatsoever for the consequences."
