[liberationtech] Assange's claim about Tor losing US government support due to WikiLeaks

Hey Jake,

I didn't intend to speak badly of Julian.  If what I wrote came across that way, it was inadvertent.  What irritated me was the flippant "who cares what cryptome thinks?"  Julian has done a number of good things, and some going back into the eighties.  But Julian didn't get into publishing leaks until many years after John and his spouse started doing it on cryptome (and associated sites).
