"Mr Assange is understood to be particularly angry with a senior reporter at the paper and former friend for 'selectively publishing' incriminating sections of the police report, although The Guardian made clear that the WikiLeaks founder was given several days to respond."

Julian Assange and this whole Wikileaks affair recently reminded me of a line from The Dark Knight when Alfred is telling Bruce about his days in Burma and the stolen jewels. Bruce can't understand the logic behind going to all the trouble to steal the jewels just to turn around toss them away like so much rubbish. To which Alfred replies:
"Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn."
Mr. Assange appears to be 'tossing away the jewels' in this latest episode of the Wikileaks Saga.
I think there are more people than we'd care to know about running around this planet who are,whether they realize it not, Nihilists or simply lost,misguided fools, who neither care about their own lives or the outcomes of their actions. I don't know if Mr. Assange is one of these kinds of people but he sure doesn't seem to helping himself or others too well at the moment.
