I don't know Assange so I, like everyone else, can only make (hopefully, educated) guesses at Wikileaks' modus operandi. Why has he not released a
large amount of national security documents for Britain, Russia, China, India, Iraq, Spain, etc..? Perhaps, the answer is as simple as Wikileaks has
not received a large amount of leaks of national security documents for those countries. To assume the quantitative differences between leaks and
their respective countries of ownership is to assume an unnecessary conspiracy without reason. (And this is without even considering the fact that,
right or not, the US is the primary mover of pieces on the global chess set, so obviously, the bulk of info in this arena is going to be re the US, if
not initiated by the US.)
To me, this is the same as virtually all of the accusations that have been launched against Assange and Wikileaks. For some reason, people are just
absolutely desperate to not only disparage Wikileaks, but to be the one that can claim, "see, I told you so" were that day to come.
It's a concern because despite the absence of known factual information that undermines Wikileaks, look how many people just covet labeling them
disinfo or anti-American or whatever. If they have the information they claim to, can you imagine how rough the road ahead is going to be? If people
can't reserve judgment of Wikileaks now, when there is no valid reason not to, what it's going to be like when things get really real? We'll never
permit our own salvation. A cynical view, perhaps.
