Rabbit Hole -- This Shit Is Definitely Not True

Long-suffering friends of this dubious blog will know that we are consistently sloppy on innumerate counts as pertains to style (Yes, and as pertains to most everything else.) Yet when we let loose the occasional canonating certitude --well, we are invariably smackaroo in the money.

Friendz know that much.


Tidy tensions 'tween WikiLeaks and the Papers.

[Assange] had become the victim of his own methods: someone at WikiLeaks, where there was no shortage of disgruntled volunteers, had leaked the last big segment of the documents, and they ended up at The Guardian in such a way that the paper was released from its previous agreement with Assange—that The Guardian would publish its stories only when Assange gave his permission.

Lots of good stuff for the careful reader, until this stinker:

“He is short of money and short of secrets,” someone who has worked extensively with Assange told me. “The whole thing has collapsed.”

This is not true, and then the writer tries to argue that the stateless nature of WL is a disadvantage.

Writer went down the rabbit hole.


Government officials are also worried that foreign intelligence services may be trying to acquire the cable collection, a development that would heighten concerns about the safety of those named in the documents.

Do ya'think? 

That fucking cat is out of the bag already.  They need not wonder any longer.
