The WikiLeaks Syria Files

WikiLeaks has obtained some 2.5m emails traded between August 2006 and January 2012 by Syrian officials at every level with western organizations or individuals.

Now, I am not a fan of WikiLeaks or its mission. In fact, I think they’ve done more harm than good when the organizations leaks information and cables aimed at harming the US in the course of conducting its foreign affairs under normal circumstances.

Syria today does not qualify to be under “normal circumstances”. The in question emails show total disregard for the law by western companies selling their wares to a regime of violence under very strict sanctions. Laws have been broken here and that is the only reason why this post exists. Dividends should not be above the law.

The List of Documents page started today. It shows Italian firms Finmeccanica and Tetra Technologies in cohort with the Assad regime.

With new elections in Italy, this is an opportunity to reign-in runaway illegal activities without harming profits and trade.
