Irony, Thy Name is John Kerry

Yes, Senator Kerry, who by the way, served in Vietnam, actually said this about WikiLeaks on Meet the Press on Sunday:

I was very much involved back in the days when the Pentagon Papers came out.  This has no relationship to something like that.  This is voyeurism.  This is sort of an anarchical kind of act by someone who wants attention that is not revealing some truth about a government lying or a policy that’s been mislead, this is just letting people in on the inside of something where it has great ability to undo our ability to protect the interests of our country.

Because Kerry’s radical chic Winter Soldier phase had nothing to do with voyeuristic performance art, anarchy or undoing America’s ability to protect its interests.

Meanwhile, Christopher Hitchens dubs Assange “a middle man and peddler who resents the civilization that nurtured him,” a line that cuts remarkably close to some of Hitchens’ more radical and atheistic turns as well.

“This is voyeurism. This is sort of an anarchical kind of act by someone who wants attention.”
