WikiLeaks said on Thursday it had begun publishing more than 2 million emails from Syrian government officials that would embarrass not only Damascus, which is trying to crush a 16-month rebellion, but also its opponents.
A statement quoted WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange as saying: “The material is embarrassing to Syria, but it is also embarrassing to Syria’s opponents.”
The spokeswoman said “The Syria Files” would shine a light on the inner workings of the Syrian government and economy, but would “also reveal how the West and Western companies say one thing and do another.”
