35. The other Wikileaks operators were against the document dump.

Assange insisted on putting more than 250,000 documents into the public space without reviewing them. Some good came of that. And likely the lives of soldiers, diplomats and spies were put at risk.

That was not investigative journalism. It was not the hallmark of a hero fighting for truth. That was a bone-headed stunt.

Doing something like that without considering the consequences is something he should answer for.
