I don't like Assange, but I can't quite figure out how somebody who never set foot in the US, and isn't a US citizen can be charged with a crime in the US.
It's a tough call for me to say that a foreign citizen on foreign soil should be beholden to American classification laws. On the flip side, if some dude in the Russian military sent me classified Russian documents, and I post them inn GAF. Would it be reasonably for me to be expedited? Would it be reasonable for the US to charge foreign heads of state with crimes for ordering intelligence operations on the US?
Im not even saying this is wrong... but tyrying to understand where that line is drawn.
