As I’ve done for the previous nearly four weeks and more, I will be updating news & views on all things WikiLeaks all day. All times added at top are ET. For more follow me at Twitter. Read about my latest book here.
UPDATE: Here the Tuesday edition of this blog.
11:55 FDL with new compilation of key Bradley Manning case articles.
10:50 Does Ron Paul regret his strong (and rare) backing for WikiLeaks early on? New interview with National Revliew folks shows he is standing by it, maybe more so. "This can’t be allowed to go without a full debate. If you don’t protect the rights that we have to broadcast and print—as well as for individuals who want to tell the truth about our government—we’re in big trouble" Not so keen on Manning, though.
8:50 Glenn Greenwald debating Fran Townsend (and host) on CNN tonite.
7:50 Good piece by noted author/columnist Richard Reeves (like me, he’s written a book about Nixon) on Wikileaks as the #1 "game changer" of 2010. Yeah, others will pick something else as "top story" but game-changing is what really counts.
5:55 Should be fun: Glenn Greenwald on CNN tonite at about 7 with former Bushie, Fran Townsend.
5:30 With little help now from NYT and Guardian, WikiLeaks has become WikiDrips, latest count still just short of 2000 published.
4:55 Capping day on Wired/Manning front (see below), a fun parody for "Hired" magazine cover.
3:55 Huff Post’s Ryan Grim notes NYT publishing cable on Karzai releasing drug dealers. "President Hamid Karzai has repeatedly released well-connected officials convicted of or charged with drug trafficking in Afghanistan, frustrating efforts to combat corruption and providing additional evidence that the United States’ top ally in the country is himself corrupt."
2:45 Robert Mackey at NYT blog reports on Assange book deal, and as often true with Times coverage of WikiLeaks the past few weeks, adds nothing to what’s known.
