Wikileaks begins release of 2.4 million emails from Syrian government

Wow…

WikiLeaks spokesman Sarah Harrison told a news conference the emails from Syrian political figures, government ministries and companies dated from August 2006 to March 2012.

She read out a statement quoting WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange as saying: “The material is embarrassing to Syria, but it is also embarrassing to Syria’s opponents.

“It helps us not merely to criticise one group or another, but to understand their interests, actions and thoughts. It is only through understanding this conflict that we can hope to resolve it,” she said.

    I’m looking forward to actually reading some of these! We already know a company part owned by the Italian government sold equipment to the Syrian authorities. I bet there’s plenty more to come!
