Wikileaks founder wants to keep his own data secret

The charmless publicity-seeker who founded Wikileaks was in court in the UK this week seeking bail. Part of the usual procedure involves stating where the accused will be residing if granted bail.

At which point Assange's lawyer asked the presiding judge to keep this information from the British media...on the grounds that it would represent an invasion of his client's privacy.

So let's review: Secrets are bad--but only if you're the U.S. government. But if you're the founder of the organization that publishes stolen secret government cables (thus encouraging witless wonders like Private Manning to steal secrets on your behalf), it's an invasion of your precious privacy.

You'd think leftists' heads would explode from the contradictions.
