I don’t get this goddamn frenzy. It’s like Julian Assange is the greatest terrorist the world has ever known or something. He released a bunch of diplomatic cables, not secret plans for a nuclear warhead or top-level military plans. Yes, it was damaging on the political level, but not cataclysmic.
At this point, the story is less of “what he did” and more of “what’s happening now that he did it”. I’ve noticed a comically low number of stories that actually delve into what was in the documents. Odd, that.
