It's alright mate, I'm only taking the mickey pre-weekend, being very laid back. Even the supermarket staff were amazed at the hugeness of my grin on the way back, and it seemed to cheer them up. (I'll admit that I've toyed with the idea of an iPad2) (Once or twice)
Yes, the Jonsdottir stuff is interesting and please note the other two quotes in which it is clear that Assange not only knew what he was doing when he released the names of low level Afghan informants, thereby rendering them vulnerable to Taliban 'punishment' attacks, but also sees them as deserving of such treatment:
"After the NYT published articles based on classified documents WikiLeaks provided on the US-led war in Afghanistan, Assange was “angry that we declined to link our online coverage of the War Logs to the WikiLeaks Web site, a decision we made because we feared – rightly, as it turned out – that its trove would contain the names of low-level informants and make them Taliban targets,” Keller writes."
"Assange's apparent gung-ho attitude in an early meeting to naming U.S. informants stunned his media collaborators, the new book claimed.
The title said he told international reporters: 'Well, they're informants so, if they get killed, they've got it coming to them. They deserve it.' The book continues: 'There was, for a moment, silence around the table.'"
The wheels will come off the bus one day, for Jules, Jonsdottir and many others. Meanwhile, lots of herbs, spices and stuff, and it's sunny today. This ought to be a good weekend.
