Could Julian Assange Arrested Conclude Wikileaks Debacle?

Could Julian Assange arrested conclude the Wikileaks debacle? The US, as well as many around the world are frustrated with Australian Julian Assange's insistence on leaking certain documents that have arguably caused a lot of worry to US officials, as well as our allies.

The founder of Wikileaks has been arrested on a warrant issued by Sweden, and was on Interpol's most wanted list.

Assange is accused of sexually assaulting two women in Sweden, and that's the charge he's being held on. He's currently in Britain, and will have a hearing on December 14 over whether or not he can be extradited to Sweden.

Previously, Assange claimed that he had an 'arsenal' of more information that he would leak on the site if he were arrested, or if his site, Wikileaks continued to have technical difficulties which many think are caused by hacks by countries who don't want Assange's information to get out there.

Now that Julian Assange is arrested, maybe at least for now the whole Wikileaks scandal will end. There's a reason some information is classified, and for matters of national security I think it's best if it's not out there for all the world - including our enemies, to see.
