I’m beginning to grow hostile at people who just blindly lash out at Wikileaks or treat this like it is just some radical anarchist with a vengeance to bring down America. The records the DOJ subpoenaed today were in regards to an attempt to prosecute people for the crime of informing us that our government was overtly lying to us about the gleefully conducted murder of innocents:
Those were real people, you assholes. Maybe I feel more strongly about this because I advocated for this war and carry a helluva lot more guilt than some of you. This isn’t about Assange, who may or may not be the world’s biggest asshole and a rapist. It’s about our government lying to us about their conduct, and then launching campaigns against the people who exposed those lies. It’s also about the future of journalism and whistleblowing.
