WikiLeaks Furious At Google

So why is WikiLeaks mad at Google for handing over information about its employees to the FBI? I thought Assange and Co. were all about obtaining and releasing private info without consent. At least in this case Google was complying with a warrant.

In a letter written by one of the organization's lawyers, Michael Ratner of the Center For Constitutional Rights, WikiLeaks says that it is "astonished and disturbed" that it's just learning about this information request now. In particular its upset that the three staffers in question, Sarah Harrison, Kristinn Hrafnsson and Joseph Farrell were not able to prepare a legal defense that may have prevented their information from being shared.
