Uh oh Assad, you’ve got some explaining to do. WikiLeaks announced Thursday that it is publishing 2.4 million Syria emails, several from government accounts. An official said that the emails show a relationship between Assad’s government and Western companies. Assange said that both Syria and the people in the emails will find the document dump “embarrassing.” The emails (WikiLeaks hasn’t said who the source is) cover the time between August 2006 and March 2012.
