Former New York Times Hacker Calls For New Charges in Wikileaks Case
Ex-hacker Adrian Lamo, whose alleged victims included Microsoft, Yahoo!, Google, MCI Worldcom, SBC, America Online and others, said today that Bradley Manning was "induced and aided" by co-conspirators in what is rapidly becoming USA v. Wikileaks.
"Known co-conspirators reside in districts competent to arrest, prosecute, and punish these people for their involvement in one of the greatest breaches of trust in the history of our intelligence community," Lamo said, adding ".... it would be irresponsible in the extreme for us to not use all the tools available to us in bringing them to justice.
Leaning forward, almost imperceptibly, Lamo emphasized: "All the tools."
Praise was also in order, as Lamo lauded investigatory efforts, highlighting the lawful and brief invitations extended to David Maurice House, inter alia, to explore, during recent detentions, the mandatory safety facilities which most civilians never get to enjoy.
Lamo noted "It is also my sincere desire for Wikileaks founder Julian Assange to face justice for his deplorable actions. The cowardice of certain members of the international community in failing to take the gloves off in dealing with this information pirate and criminal is not yet so far gone that swift, stern action cannot redeem it."
"Much like O.J. Simpson, Assange and his co-conspirators in the U.S. are likely to find that none are truly bulletproof,"
Extending an olive branch, Lamo put forth his personal and heartfelt sympathy to Bradley Manning for his extended detention, encouraging Manning to extend all possible cooperation needed to cement his acceptance of responsibility, adding hopes that Manning returns to serving his country honorably by exposing those who would threaten the lives of its citizens through acts of information-
Lamo will be available for questions via e-mail. He added his approbation of the hard work of USACIDC, DOS, NSA, and other government agencies in the case.
Adrian Lamo is a journalist, public speaker, and former hacker who exposed Bradley Manning's role in the Wikileaks scandal.
