And Mugabe, the butcher of Zimbabwe, thanks you for your help too, Assange.
A few of the revelations nicked Mugabe and his family, revealing their ties to the blood diamond trade. But most of the disclosures have eased the life of the dictator. The ruling party is now hunting for traitors, based on information from the leaks. Party-controlled media have played up American criticisms of Tsvangirai, even while accusing the opposition of being American puppets. And the Mugabe-appointed attorney general has named a commission to consider legal action, perhaps including charges against Tsvangirai. "The WikiLeaks appear to show," the attorney general says ominously, "a treasonous collusion between local Zimbabweans and the aggressive international world, particularly the United States."
