Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

The hero-worshippers will be horrified anew when the extent of Mr. Assange’s document drops are made clear in court. Julian Assange and Chelsea Manning cast their purloined secrets on the wind unedited, unredacted and unexamined for the risks they posed to the innocent. The idea seemed to be that the innocent would just have to take care of themselves, and if some of them had to die, well, that’s just a risk the leakers were willing to take. There’s a broken heart for every light on Broadway, after all, and every omelet has a broken egg or two in it. Somebody has to suffer for a greater good, and all that. Now we’re about to see who else can suffer.
