WikiLeaks Beclown Themselves

The Telegraph reports that the folks at WikiLeaks sure think pretty highly of themselves:

WikiLeaks has sparked outrage after suggesting the Libyan embassy was attacked because the US had backed Britain’s threat to storm the Ecuadorian embassy in London and remove Julian Assange.

The website issued a tweet suggesting that America had given ‘tacit approval’ to the threats from the Foreign Office.

At the time the FCO was warned that if they removed Assange it would jeopordise its own diplomatic rights in other countries.

However the tweet, which was quickly removed, was criticised by Jemima Khan as ‘absurd and shockingly offensive.’

The whistleblowers made the controversial remark on Twitter following the death of the US ambassador to Libya in protests this week.

..[Assange] has been accused of raping and sexually assaulting two women on a visit to Sweden where he was promoting his WikiLeaks website.

Who even remembers that WikiLeaks is still around?

The only news they ever make is when Assange goes to yet another extreme length to avoid facing his accusers. As Sweden is not some third-world backwater judicially, it’s pretty obvious that Assange must be guilty of something.

All I could think of when I saw this story, aside from “what a bunch of douche-nozzles,” was Carly Simon’s “You’re So Vain”

Note that this is some sort of mash-up between and old and a newer recording of the song…
