Antiwar Radio: Julian Assange interviewed by Scott Horton

Assange talks about forthcoming leaks, Wikileaks is deluged with materials from whistleblowers. He makes a plea to support Bradley Manning who has said he was willing to face life in prison or even a firing squad if that's what telling the truth meant; now Manning has effectively been renditioned to Kuwait.

Bradley Manning moved to Virginia last night.

Army Private in WikiLeaks Case Transferred to US Military Jail
30 July 2010

The U.S. military says an American soldier suspected of leaking military secrets to the WikiLeaks website has been moved from Kuwait to a military jail in Virginia.

Army Private First Class Bradley Manning was flown to Quantico Marine Base to await trial for leaking the top-secret information.

In April, WikiLeaks posted classified video of a 2007 helicopter strike in Iraq that killed two Iraqis who were on assignment for the Reuters news agency. Two months later, the U.S. military announced it had detained Manning for allegedly releasing the classified information.

Manning also has come under suspicion after WikiLeaks this week published tens of thousands of secret documents relating to the Afghan war. The U.S. Defense Department has said the latest leak may cost lives and damage relations with allies.

is "damage to relations" with allies the new meme

also posed re the AZ bill fight....(damage to our "relations" with Mexico)....

since when do our "relationships" with foreign countries define our policies....

oh yeah, ever since we forgot to avoid becoming entangled

(like the rest of the world does not know what kind of "ally" we really are)

cee cee

cee cee, You're right.

Regarding this immigration issue, how about any damage to the U.S. relations with the state of Arizona! I guess that is all right.

and notice the spin evolution

version 1: no "real secrets" exposed in the 90,000 docs...no important information contained within same

version 2: leaks are damaging to "foreign relations" (supposedly the Paki's are furious)

version 3: leaks are "aiding" the "enemy" (creating hit lists for Taliban)

wonder what tomorrow's version will be? and if #1 is true, how can 2 or 3 or 4-99 be true and correct

cee cee

Excellent interview with helpful transcript.

Encouraging to hear that Wikileaks received "deluge of new high-level leaks from people inside the US Government" and that they have six months' backlog. "Interesting days ahead" for us all.

Scott H's interview with Mike Gogulski (Help Bradley Manning) is VERY good, too. http://antiwar.com/radio/2010/07/27/mike-gogulski/

I can't imagine what Manning

I can't imagine what Manning is going through. Bless him!
