Let’s be fair to Jules Stenson here, he makes it very clear that he didn’t go on Newsnight to talk about the terrible things that he, personally, was responsible for. He didn’t go on there to defend the newspaper that he worked for who hacked into the voicemails of a murdered teenager in order to try and make money. He went on Newsnight to try and make the Guardian look bad by quibbling over details of things that he hadn’t actually looked into properly. And who can blame him for that, eh?

Julian Assange's battles threaten to overshadow WikiLeaks' work http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2011/02/04/AR2011020405201.html?sid=ST2011020407315

There’s an extraordinary exchange showing Assange’s attitude to Afghan informants in this Washington Post article:

"Well, they’re informants," he said, according to the journalists’ account. "So, if they get killed, they’ve got it coming to them. They deserve it."

Wow.
