I got this from Doonesbury’s Say What? :
— Brookings Institution senior fellow Michael O’Hanlon, asked what he would do if he were sitting across the table from Julian Assange
You do realize that Julian Assange could not do what he does if there were not people in the diplomatic corps and the military who think exactly as he does, don’t you? These are not foreign spies, but American soldiers and diplomats, who have more insight to what goes on (because they are inside what’s going on) than you do, who think that their country would be better served by more transparency.
