    For historians Wikileaks is a god send. Such source material is usually hidden for all of a lifetime between youth and old age. A historian has to work from an incredibly biased and incomplete record when dealing with the age they have lived in. Wikileaks, and it's informant Bradley Manning, have given a godsend to the world's historians. It is also perdition for those who's public lies have been revealed by their secret statements in the past. Hillary Clinton deserves credit for standing up and taking the rap and taking the heat for her nation. Have the same admiration for others who have tried to defend the indefensible in the name of their nation such as Valerian Zorin, Tariq Aziz, and Andrei Gromyko. Excuse my tolerance for a certain type of scoundrel. Wikileaks has left no refuge for Hillary or the USA. So Hillary must battle on, totally discredited, without hope of ever escaping the associations she has chosen. Hillary continues to bravely defend the indefensible long after the battle was lost because that is the only possible way to defend her government.

IfNotNow doesn’t deserve the support of left-leaning Jews
