WikiLeaks gets it wrong

A good scavenger hunt aims for the predator, not the prey.

We didn’t need WikiLeaks.org., to inform us that alleged ally Pakistan is a two-faced player on the terror-fighting battlefield. That nonsense nation is on record for creating and championing the Taliban, selling atomic secrets on the black market and turning a blind eye to the porous border it shares with the North West Frontier province — a dangerous and explosive region nestled in the Himalayas, Karakoram and Hindu Kush mountains with a well-earned reputation for being the toilet of the world, ruled by drug-addled bandits.

WikiLeaks’ founder Julian Assange is a traitor for irresponsibly dumping close to 100,000 pages of secret information about the U.S. military’s strategy against a zealous and ruthless enemy — allegedly leaked to him by a disgruntled Army private.

Sensitive, classified information, at that, which was kept confidential for good reason, because might has to accompany right before evil can be vanquished.

Assange’s eagerness to help promote radical Islam’s Fourth Reich and boost its jihad has compromised our national security, and he should be prosecuted as an accessory to war crimes.

The document dump, no feather in the cap of his chicken-hearted watchdog group which cravenly and conspicuously lets radical Islam off the hook, also exposes Assange’s dodgy logic. Couple that with his astonishing lack of insight — foresight, too — and the purported brainiac’s PhD, should stand for “Piled higher and deeper.”

American and allied soldiers now face increased dangers on the frontlines, thanks to Wikileaks. As if they didn’t have enough to contend with so that Assange and his ungrateful ilk can live freely. So, too, do the brave Afghans who risked their lives to rat out the Taliban. They are more than likely being tortured, maimed and killed by those treacherous thugs as you read this. Credit that –— lock, stock and barrel — to Julian Assange.

The War on Terror is also a war of clashing ideologies. Make no mistake about that. Whatever our military tactics, though, they could never be as merciless and immoral as those wielded, unchecked, by our adversaries.

It would be more noble, more significant to the war effort and more of a public service if WikiLeaks had the cajones to solicit and publish the gory game plan of the execrable and elusive mujahideen, whose murders of more than 3,000 innocent people on Sept. 11, 2001 prompted the U.S. offensive — which Assange finds so reprehensible — to begin with.
