I cannot, for the life of me, figure out why some conservatives are so hell-bent on defending him.
Probably because there are still some (not many!) conservatives who value freedom, government accountability and limited government.

Further, I'd like to argue that if you support Assange and WikiLeaks you're not a conservative, you're an anarchist, but that's a little too No-Scotsman-y for me to attempt.

I will say I'm saddened to see the mistrust of our government is so strong that many people openly praise acts that put A LOT of American lives at risk just so they could stick their thumb in the government's eye.
Why is it not the fault of the government for being untrustworthy? It's not like it's undeserved.

There is a right way and a wrong (illegal) way to report governmental abuses.

Assange is a scumbag who doesn't care one bit about protecting Americans, in fact his actions put many American lives in danger.

Get the fuck out of here with that sort of nonsense. That dog simply won't hunt.

Assange's criminal actions don't absolve our government's misdeeds any more than our government's misdeeds justify Assange's criminality.
