Let me play devil's advocate. WikiLeaks has been all over the news recently (duh), as well as the people who defend it. But what about Morgan Tsvangirai? For those of you who don't know of him, a Wikipedia summary will suffice: "Morgan Richard Tsvangirai (born 10 March 1952) is the Prime Minister of Zimbabwe. He is the President of the Movement for Democratic Change - Tsvangirai (MDC-T) and a key figure in the opposition to President Robert Mugabe. Tsvangirai was sworn in as the Prime Minister of Zimbabwe on 11 February 2009. Tsvangirai was the MDC candidate in the controversial 2002 presidential election, losing to Mugabe. He later contested the first round of the 2008 presidential election as the MDC-T candidate, taking 47.8% of the vote according to official results, placing him ahead of Mugabe, who got 43.2%. Tsvangirai claimed to have won a majority and said that the results could have been altered in the month between the election and the reporting of official results. Tsvangirai initially planned to run in the second round against Mugabe, but withdrew shortly before it was held, arguing that the election would not be free and fair due to widespread violence and intimidation by government supporters." Morgan Tsvangirai: Good Man. Now, the following is an excerpt from a Wall Street Journal editorial dated January 21, 2011. The authors have a clear bias against Assange, but if you ignore that, they seem to make some very valid points. "Late last month Julian Assange secured a million-dollar advance from two publishers to write his autobiography. The WikiLeaks founder says he needs the money to cover the legal expenses arising from charges that he raped two women in Sweden. But perhaps Mr. Assange would do better to defend himself and pay the lawyers' fees of the people now in legal jeopardy thanks to his wanton disclosures. One worthy candidate is Morgan Tsvangirai, Zimbabwe's long-time opposition leader and now its powerless Prime Minister. Yesterday, the Associated Press reported that Zimbabwe Attorney General Johannes Tomana, a loyalist to despot Robert Mugabe, has assembled an "expert panel" to review 3,000 U.S. diplomatic cables published by WikiLeaks for evidence that Mr. Tsvangirai committed treason. "Treason," AP adds, "carries a possible death sentence in Zimbabwe." The charge that hangs most heavily on Mr. Tsvangirai's head is that he privately urged Western diplomats to maintain sanctions on Zimbabwe—sanctions that target Mr. Mugabe's cronies—even though the Prime Minister has opposed those sanctions in public. Maybe Mr. Assange imagines that he's usefully exposed a case of blatant political hypocrisy. The rest of us are more likely to forgive Mr. Tsvangirai for trying to help his country in private while having no choice but to concede in public to a desperate political reality. This is not the first time the regime has sought to indict Mr. Tsvangirai for treason, and no doubt it would resort to other dirty tricks were it not for the convenience of the leaked cables. But there's no doubt, either, that Mr. Assange has made the regime's work that much easier. Even a million for Mr. Tsvangirai's defense wouldn't begin to cover WikiLeaks' collateral damage." So, in a den of WikiLeak's supporters, I ask: what about Morgan Tsvangirai?
