Leigh and Harding only falter a few times in this fast-moving, bio-scandal hybrid about Assange and Manning, and the leak of many secret documents.
1. FOX NEWS wants Assange assassinated.
2. Senator Lieberman wants Assange terminated.
3. Hillary Clinton would like Assange to be erased.
4. But, then, a few months after the massive leak, America learns that the leaks actually increased the popularity of the USA among the regular people in the Middle-East.
5. Yes, the clear, colorful descriptions of criminal elements in Russia, Iraq and Afghanistan really made citizens of these countries both angry at their leaders and happier about the USA.
6. So, the USA backed off...a little.
7. But, today, Manning is still locked up and Assange can't go out and play.
8. Obama's State Department seems aware and useful.
9. But, Obama and the USA military remain angry cretins.
10. We learn, basically, that leaks can help the world.
11. But, pity the poor leakers.
12. They must be punished and tortured and kept in solitary and hurt and criticized and deported or jailed or killed or driven insane.
13. Nice country you've made, Mr. President.
14. And, by the way, keep up the drone assassinations of brown people. These killings are really getting you support among the innocent victims.
15. Hope you bring the drones to the USA ghettos and barrios soon. I know you want to.
