    Book: Julian Assange Held Back Wikileaks About U.S., Israel



    People on both sides of the argument have been quick to rush to judgement on the motivations of Wikileaks’ Julian Assange. Moral crusader or compromised egotist?

    In a new book about Assange written by the Guardian journalists with whom he worked closely, Assange is quoted as saying that negative cables concerning the United States and Israel were deliberately omitted from initial Wikileaks releases last year to prevent the organization being stereotyped as anti-American.

    “We shouldn’t go exposing, for example Israel, during the initial phase….the exposure of these other bad countries (Russia, Arab countries) will set the tone of American public opinion,” Assange is quoted as saying in the book.
