Chutzpah just got defined up. Check this out:
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has hit out at the US military, saying that it bears the ultimate responsibility for any deaths of Afghan informers in the wake of the publication by his organisation of 75,000 leaked files of American army secrets.
Assange and WikiLeaks, the whistleblowers’ website that publishes leaked documents from around the world, have come under increasing fire amid accusations that publishing the files put people’s lives at risk. But in an interview with the Observer, Assange said the blame for any deaths lay squarely with US military authorities.
“We are appalled that the US military was so lackadaisical with its Afghan sources. Just appalled. We are a source protection organisation that specialises in protecting sources and have a perfect record from our activities,” he said.
Translation: “You made it too easy for me to get people killed, you killers!”
