Whiny Quote of the Day: The real victims of the WikiLeaks Gitmo disclosures

| »

Sure, WikiLeaks just released scores of classified papers revealing all sorts of legal tyranny and various human rights violations going on (and largely ignored) at Guantanamo Bay, where the vast majority of captives are held without any semblance of due process and are only there in the first place because of extremely flimsy evidence … but they are not the real victims, here. No, those who suffer most are brave martyrs in the government such as Pentagon Press Secretary Geoff Morrell, who tweeted thus:

Tweet by Geoff Morrell (@PentagonPressSec) [04/25/11 ~ 11:00 AM]: “Thx to Wikileaks we spent Easter weekend dealing w/NYT & other news orgs publishing leaked classified GTMO docs”

Thy heart, it positively bleeds for you.
