65. Thank you, I think I will. This whole post was so
totally wrong I didn't know where to begin to try to correct it. Eg, Wikileaks is an award-winning news org. that has been exposing corruption and human rights violations in countries that are NOT the U.S. since its inception. It has received several awards for its work, one from Amnesty International.

This blatant attempt to smear them to protect one politician in this country is simply mind boggling to see on a democratic board.

Thank you for reading. I don't have time right now, but later I will be posting some facts about the organization. Something I thought people here already knew, but this post and some of the comments surprised me in their ignorance to be honest ~ :-)
