WikiLeaks Exposes Secret USA-Japan Whaling Talks

The Guardian reports:

Japan and the US proposed to investigate and act against international anti-whaling activists from the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society as part of a political deal to reduce whaling in Antarctic waters.

In other words, America was not only willing to agree to continued Japanese whaling, but was also willing to pass laws that would subject Sea Shepherd activists to federal prosecution.

I’ve lost my capacity to be surprised by anything WikiLeaks reveals. Link.
