    The debacle in Afghanistan shows we should have listened to, not criminalized, Julian Assange

    The founder of Wikileaks informed us long ago, with documentary proof, that US/NATO troops in Afghanistan were not winning the hearts and minds of the people; instead, they were making themselves hated. But the message went unheard and now the messenger is in prison awaiting judgment.
