Julian Assange

The wiki-leaks are in the news big time this week.

The controversial website WikiLeaks collects and posts highly classified documents and video. Founder Julian Assange, who's reportedly being sought for questioning by US authorities, talks to TED's Chris Anderson about how the site operates, what it has accomplished -- and what drives him. The interview includes graphic footage of a recent US airstrike in Baghdad.

Be afraid. Be very afraid.

I always thought the point of leaking was that you'd get somebody on the record saying 'this is garbage' or 'it's true, but...' and take it from there. The Pentagon's present position is that they don't comment on leaks. The third way.
