Salon’s premiere liberal bomb-thrower, Glenn Greenwald, aims his outrage today at Hillary Clinton.

It launched an “unprecedented” criminal investigation into the online organization and threatened international-relations students not to read or share the leaked cables if they ever wanted to work in government.
