Question is: Who is sitting in the glass house here?
Assange who's likes to leak information about others and has now information about himself leaked? Or governments who cry foul when information about them is leaked but happily will leak information themselves when it suites their purpose and can be used to to spread unpleasant information about political opponents or other disliked persons.
Well, probably both.
Looks like one of those cases where the prosecutors know they don't have enough evidence for a conviction in court, so they pronounce the sencentce themselves and execute it immediately. The sentence being: Destruction of reputation.
