Also, you first have to believe in and trust in something before you can be a traitor to it.

Also, intention and motive still matter. I'm not convinced that Assange intended/intends harm to the USA. Or any other nation.

To specific bad actors, real and perceived, within their governments, though? Almost a certainty.

Disagree

I think you just have to be a member/citizen. Which is the point: Assange is Australian, not American. Even theoretically, he can only betray Australia, not the US.

You're arguing from courtroom POV, I'm in the philosophical POV. So that leaves us both right.

It's an airport ...
