Mr. Assange was asked about what he hoped to achieve through the leak of U.S. diplomatic cables. He said it was too early to tell but noted, approvingly, "Israeli Prime Minister [Benjamin] Netanyahu coming out with a very interesting statement that leaders should speak in public like they do in private whenever they can. He believes that the results of this publication, which makes the sentiments of many privately held beliefs public from senior political figures, will lead to some kind of increase in the peace process in the Middle East and particularly in relation to Iran."Just like we all want Israel in the NPT framework, right? And we're all cool with the Wikileaks cables going all over the place as long as they're not exposing OUR dirty little secret assassinations in Dubai or our kidnapping and treatment of people who blow whistles on our SECRET. NUCLEAR. WEAPONS.
That said, if you really want a dose of hypocrisy, check out Egypt, Hezbollah and some other friendly friends around in the region. So not like Mr. Netanyahu is in bad company.
But by all means, blow the whistle and leak on our enemies' SECRET. NUCLEAR. WEAPONS.
