Recall that in August, Assange admitted that his leak during the 2007 Kenyan election led to 1,300 deaths (“That was the result of our leak”). Assange’s justification: “On the other hand, the Kenyan people had a right to that information and 40,000 children a year die of malaria in Kenya.”
So a few more Kenyan deaths don’t matter. Interestingly, around 140,000 Australians die every year. Would one more make a difference? Apparently so, if it’s Julian.
