Wikileaks Hires Alan Dershowitz

Julian Assange's Wikileaks has hired torture-loving, Obama-concern-trolling Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz to advise it on how to combat the Justice Department's effort to wrestle data about its online behavior from Twitter.

The last time Dershowitz weighed in on Wikileaks, he was wondering aloud whether it was "complicit in the crime" of leaking the diplomatic cables, and agreeing with Hilary Clinton that "WikiLeaks poses a danger not only to the US but to international diplomacy." On the other hand, he helped O.J. Simpson get away with murder so it's not like he's picky.
