‘Oh My’: GOP Senator Calls Out Hannity for Tweet Praising WikiLeaks

Sean Hannity, who once said that people could die as a result of WikiLeaks’ actions, praised them on Twitter today and said no one died and they’re never wrong:

Compare that to this actual comment from Hannity in 2010 in a conversation with Ann Coulter on what WikiLeaks released back then:

“75,000 documents were released, including the names of 100 Afghans that are helping us privately identify Taliban leaders. So all their lives have been put in jeopardy. Then last month… 390,000 classified documents. Now all of a sudden there’s outrage because… this embarrasses the Obama administration… The fact that people may die didn’t motivate them in the early stages of this when the guy [Assange] telegraphed that he was gonna release a lot more of these.”

Well, Hannity’s flip-flop earned him a bit of Twitter mockery tonight:

Oh, and one of the people who called him out was a Republican senator (who, in turn, got called out by WikiLeaks):
