WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is irked by government leaks . . . about Julian Assange.Assange doesn't have a problem with obtaining and transmitting hundreds of thousands of classified documents about US foreign policy that can affect US national security, foreign policy, diplomacy, and international relations, but the moment someone releases salacious information about Assange's dirty little secrets and the ongoing investigation into the alleged rapes in Sweden, he gets righteous about confidentiality and the law.
British papers over the weekend printed bits of a police report accusing Assange of committing a variety of sex crimes during a 10-day trip to Sweden this past summer.
Now his lawyer wants the leaker unmasked -- plus a criminal investigation of the leak itself.
Live by the leak, die by the leak -- isn't that fair, Julian?
