It is today that we must remember that warnings and leaks mediated by Assange and Wikileaks have revealed war crimes and abuses so heinous – and in such numbers – that they are difficult to describe and impossible to comprehend. What is worse is that we have gradually come to expect that the crimes have not led to any kind of prosecution either,. . .
