WikiLeaks saves us from Greenwald

"Data Pirates of the Caribbean: The NSA Is Recording Every Cell Phone Call in the Bahamas"  The first thing everybody noticed was the missing country name, exactly the kind of redaction provided by traditional liars like the New York Times using the same kind of ultra-vague excuse (safety, national security, 'deaths').

"WikiLeaks ignores ‘deaths’ warning, threatens to name NSA-targeted country"  Fair warning to Greenwald to do the only right thing.

"'Country X': WikiLeaks reveals NSA recording 'nearly all' phone calls in Afghanistan"  Bahamas is uninteresting; Afghanistan is a real story.  With one word, Greenwald's non-story becomes a real story.  It looks like the original story was crafted to hide information.

"WikiLeaks statement on the mass recording of Afghan telephone calls by the NSA"

"WikiLeaks Threatens To Reveal Information That Glenn Greenwald Says Could Lead To 'Deaths'"  The honest man here may be Jacob Appelbaum.

"Why Did Wikileaks Name "Country X" When Glenn Greenwald Wouldn't?"

Predictably, Greenwald's first big story for Pierre turns into a censorship fiasco.
