Julian Assange Arrested. Did He Sabotage Wikileaks?

Julian Assange was arrested inside Ecuador's embassy in London early Thursday morning, reportedly under a U.S. warrant for cracking a password on government computers related to Chelsea Manning's release of damning information about the use of force by United States forces during the occupation of Iraq.

Was Julian Assange arrested for publishing information that made the war effort look bad, or for allegedly committing a crime and breaking a government password with Chelsea Manning to retrieve that information? And how should this play into our understanding of him and his prosecution? Thom Hartmann dives in.
