Lest you think ASSange and his crew are whistleblowers and heros:

Whistleblowers don't threaten to release more sensative information if their leader is arrested on completely separate charges.

Extortionists do.

(Because if you really thought people needed to know that stuff, you'd release it regardless, right?)

And Whistleblowers don't attack the livelihoods of businesses who don't want to be associated with them.

Criminals and Thugs do.

Just saying.

Thank you, for this articulate post! Very true. It's shocking to see how naive some people are about international affairs and how many (Americans included) view any government as unconditionally one-dimensional and evil. Sigh.
