Bravo, WikiLeaks

I was traveling and unavailable to comment on the latest WikiLeaks story when it broke. Suffice it to say that the publication of classified U.S. government documents about the floundering imperial effort in Afghanistan illustrates the value of the Website/organization and its editor-in-chief, Julian Assange. Private watchdog efforts like WikiLeaks are absolutely vital, and you better believe I support them in any conflict they may ever have with a government, including the nasty behemoth that presides over the country in which I currently live.

Oh yeah. And Marc Thiessen, the chest-pounding thug who wants the government to use “not only law enforcement but also intelligence and military assets to bring Assange to justice and put [WikiLeaks] out of business” can kiss my ass.

    Screw all the people in Afghanistan who were outed by this treason and are being hunted down and killed. Objecting to the war is fine. Betraying your country for political point scoring is not. They should turn Assange over to the families of the Afghans who are being murdered by the Taliban because of the information he released.

    You can kiss my ass if you support him.

    And how many hundreds of innocent civilian Afghanis were killed by American troops in misfired or merely callous actions? Wasn’t it Gen. Stanley McChrystal who said, “We’ve shot an amazing number of people and killed a number and, to my knowledge, none has proven to have been a real threat to the force.”?

    I hate working out balance sheets on this sort of thing, but reining in official misdeeds almost always saves a lot of lives.
