Kenya erupted in violence following a controversial presidential election in January 2008.

This week anti-American activist Julian Assange made a stunning admission to The Guardian. The Wikileak founder confessed that a document his organization leaked “flipped the election” in Kenya where “1,300 people were eventually killed, and 350,000 were displaced.” But then Assange went on to say that, “On the other hand, the Kenyan people had a right to that information.”
The Guardian reported:

Vaughan Smith, the director of the Frontline Club, tells me that he’s more or less subsisted on “two hours’ sleep and two sandwiches”. But then, there’s something about Assange that if not superhuman, is almost as if sleep and food are mere technicalities that might concern the rest of us, but that he has found a way of simply dispensing with. Combat, intellectual combat, seems to be his stimulant of choice. It just fuels him.

When I try to question him about the morality of what he’s done, if he worries about unleashing something that he can’t control, that no one can control, he tells me the story of the Kenyan 2007 elections when a WikiLeak document “swung the election”.

The leak exposed massive corruption by Daniel Arap Moi, and the Kenyan people sat up and took notice. In the ensuing elections, in which corruption became a major issue, violence swept the country. “1,300 people were eventually killed, and 350,000 were displaced. That was a result of our leak,” says Assange. It’s a chilling statistic, but then he states: “On the other hand, the Kenyan people had a right to that information and 40,000 children a year die of malaria in Kenya. And many more die of money being pulled out of Kenya, and as a result of the Kenyan shilling being debased.”

It’s the kind of moral conundrum that would unnerve most people, that made some wonder last week what the potential ramifications of the latest leak might be, but it is a subject on which Assange himself is absolutely clear: “You have to start with the truth. The truth is the only way that we can get anywhere. Because any decision-making that is based upon lies or ignorance can’t lead to a good conclusion.”

The other key thing about WikiLeaks is that it’s internationalist in the true sense. “We do not have national security concerns. We have concerns about human beings,” says Assange.

  1. I sure hope you’re f–in’ happy with all those dead people on your conscience, leakyboi.

  2. The other key thing about WikiLeaks is that it’s internationalist in the true sense. “We do not have national security concerns. We have concerns about human beings,” says Assange.

    “1,300 people were eventually killed, and 350,000 were displaced. That was a result of our leak,” says Assange.

    Damned by his own words.

  3. Does that include the whole truth? It is often the case that people of ill will can take a select document or quote, and stampede others into jumping to stupid conclusions.

    This guy is a total dumbass. A document dump doesn’t yield truth, it yields chaos and death.

  4. Isn’t this the election that put TheWon’s cousin in power? And isn’t Soros a big contributer to Wikileaks?

  5. Its all about power. He’s a meglomaniac who gets of on manipulating governments, institutions, and people. No sane person would willingly cause the violent deaths of people who have done nothing to harm him. The sooner this creep is rendered harmless, the better for all of us.

  6. Assange is a classic sociopath. And an all round POS!

  7. Well I want him to expose Barry first then he can go to ………..

  8. He likes to sit back and watch the inferno. He is a sick %$#&

  9. Daniel Arap Moi? Say what? He wasn’t running for re-election at that time, he wasn’t president at that time, and EVERYONE in Kenya KNEW his government was corrupt. Who needed a document telling them what they already knew, in spades, for years?

    Assange is a liar. Obama, using US taxpayer funding, as a US Senator, nepotistically campaigned in a foreign election for fellow tribal Luo Odinga, who claims to be Obama’s cousin. Odinga screamed MURDER at the results, and set Luos on Kikuyus.

    So, now we know Assange’s loyalities: Obama.

    Maybe this is to divert attention from the 200,000 or so homeless Kenyan victims’ appeals to the International Criminal Court.

  10. …………………

    ………………………………

    There’re simpler explanations than supernaturally superhuman:

    Assange is lying to the idiot.
    Assange is manic depressive. Watch out for the crash. Probably will dump Sarah Palin’s obstetrical records and then “anguish” about it for entire minutes.

    Well a third: the writer is making up this crap as he goes… and given the rest of the piece, that’s certainly a real part of it.

    Not a pretty choice. HONESTY is the one thing that’s glaringly missing in all this Wikileaks “expose.” Anyone notice that “Where’s Assange” is suspiciously similar to “Where’s Waldo” or “Where in the World is Carmen Santiago?”

  11. Man oh Man, very twisted logic. “We have concerns for human beings” therefore our involvement in the killings of hundreds of thousands of human beings is just the price that has to be paid.

  12. the more i learn about this international man of mystery– dare i say– the james bond of intellectual espionage, the more i want to release his chakra. forget that global warming Lothario, al gore, seems like we got a new kid on the block ladies.

  13. He can say he’s concerned about human beings, that doesn’t make it so. He can say he’s above all the fray; he started the fray. All those deaths in Kenya, he can lay at his own two feet; whereas the neglect of the world of Kenya’s troubles, those injuries and injustices are at the hands of elected officials both within Kenya and at the UN and other places where a blind eye has been turned. But those deaths are the direct result of his data dumping. He can rationalize but that’s all it is, an excuse.

    He’s put himself in the front as the catalyst and seems to revel in anarchy if it stems from his organization releasing materials.

  14. The real story is that the people of Kenya voted for Kibaki, and Obama’s cousin didn’t like not winning. So, his men runded up the Christians and set them ablaze in Churches or hacked them to death with machetes.
    I think Mr. Assange is giving himself way too much credit, for causing this atrocity. Looks like he also suffers from that now abolished DSM-VI disease, narcissistic Personality Disorder.
    If anything, Obama was over in Kenya, campaigning for his cousin Reile Odingo, in direct violation of the Logan Act.
    It seems to be that this Assange is an Obama operative and a revisionist historian.

  15. When truth becomes treason, we are all doomed.

    =====================================

    That’s one hell of a sanctimonious soapbox you’re standing on.

    But the end justifies the means, right?

  17. Well what was the document???

  18. Obama also made big news for stirring up Kenyans against corruption while he campaigned for Odinga on his Kenya trip in 2006, prompting Kenyan President Kibaki to call Obama a “stooge” of Odinga. Of course, corruption is endemic throughout Africa, and is something that Odinga has not changed and never intended to change.

    It seems likely that Assange was engaging in the same kind of pro-Odinga politicking as Obama. We know why Obama was politicking for Odinga: because Odinga was exposed by Kenya’s Muslim leaders in 2007 to be a secret Islamofascist, just like Obama. What is Assange’s excuse?

  19. Hand in glove.. if the glove fits you must convict..

    ‘As Barack Obama campaigns to be the next president of the United States of America, his slogan is that he is the agent of change. What exactly that means is not clear. From what he says, it seems to mean that he will tax the rich and redistribute the wealth. With the money garnished from the rich (e.g., a family earning over $250,000 per year), domestically he will provide universal health care, better education for every child, revive the economy and make serious inroads into energy independence. In foreign affairs, he will bring our boys home and/or redistribute them to Pakistan. He will sit down and talk to Iran’s Mad Jihad Man without preconditions — although Ahmadinedjad has some preconditions of his own. He will take immediate action to reviving the peace process between Israel and those who are fixated on destroying Israel, with an aim of redistributing land to the Palestinian Arabs.

    Raila Odinga ran for president of Kenya on the slogan: “Your agent for Change.” Odinga is not coy about saying what he means when he announces he is an agent of change. He is an admitted Communist (with a Capital C) and he wants eventually to replace Kenya’s current democracy with a government that will give more weight to groups now elbowed out of power. He is of the Luo tribe — as was Obama’s father — and he certainly wants a bigger slice of the pie for his tribe. A nominal Anglican, he has also made an alliance with the Muslims, but the terms of their agreement are not clear.

    At issue is the claim that Obama supported Odinga’s bid for the presidency, and when Odinga lost, helped force the winning side to take Odinga on as prime minister.’

    Not only did he support Odinga but he misused U.S. tax money to subvert the vote on the Kenyan Constitution and thus gave Kenya sharia law which most did not want..
