I’m thinking of starting a website for whistleblowers. I’m just a bit worried about one thing.
What? That those exposed will come down on you like a tonne of bricks?
Well, I did something some months ago that I'm not proud of...
Oh. What did you do? Don’t tell me like WikiLeak founder Julian Assange you’ll also be charged with rape.
You mean charged for non-consensual unprotected sex.
Oh, is that the charge?
Yes, Assange had sex with two women who have charged him with ‘surprise sex’.
Is being surprised that anybody is willing to sleep with someone a crime?
No. In the first case, the condom broke;
in the second, he didn’t use a condom.
And you think you’ll be charged with...?
I had an unprotected conversation with Niira Radia about condoms well past their expiry dates being doled out free in the run-up to Delhi University elections.
Hmm. That is tricky. But you think Assange is being harassed by the US government for posting those diplomatic cables?
US defence secretary Robert Gates did
say with a crooked smile that his arrest ‘sounded like good news’. But it’s so
hard to tell.
What did you plan as your first upload on your site?
Diplomatic cables from envoys of the Pope regarding the pontiff’s statement about condom usage by Catholics.
Wow! Is the whistleblower Dan Brown?
No, Julian Assange.
Do say: Will Assange now blow the lid off the US judicial system from inside a prison?
Don’t say: You can’t sheath the truth.
