Here (via reddit) and here. An earlier assessment from FP magazine (including the word “backpeddle”) concludes the leaks are really more about a news agency trying to professionalize itself with respect to world governments and find a middle path between dealing with them rationally and being their sockpuppet. It’s going to take a bit of digestion before this makes sense.
Wadah Khanfar responds on Al-Jazeera. Ultimately, I find the fact that he’s being replaced by a member of the Qatari ruling family of greater concern than the wikileaks citations, which seem to be somewhat sensationalized in the way they have been de-contextualized (as usual) in order to create an incendiary headline. With any luck, A-J will continue to engage this topic rather than shoving it aside. Once again, the leaks establish their value in allowing conversations like this to happen in the public arena.
