"Is one failed attempt to crack a password really enough to embroil Assange in a felony hacking case?"

Yes, hacking government computers is a felony. It really is that simple.

Additionally, a failed attempt doesn't make something legal.  If I attempt to rob a bank...  because I failed I shouldn't be charged??? Yeah, no.

Assange knowingly committed a felony and got caught.  I really don't get the problem here.  Regardless if the punishment fits the crime, the law is there.  He knew about it and decided to ignore the consequences.
