As I’ve done for more than thirteen weeks, I will be updating news and views on all things WikiLeaks all day, with new items added at the top. All times are ET in USA. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, Read about or order my new book, The Age of WikiLeaks, just updated to early February, in print or an e-book.
8:00 Foreign Policy’s review of the Week in WikiLeaks.
7:00 Seemingly personal tweet from Assange @WikiLeaks: “From house arrest with love; ‘All Quiet on the Western Front’ for World Book Night http://is.gd/YQoMxM .”
4:00 Rep. Kucinich asks re: Manning —“Is this Quantico or Abu Ghraib?”
3:30 My piece, a useful backgrounder: “Bradley Manning and the Tomb of the Well-Known Soldier.”
3:00 I had this yesterday, but getting more attention today: Former UK spy boss credits WikiLeaks with helping to spark revolts in Egypt and elsewhere, in off-the-record speech captured clandestinely.
1:50 Editorial in The Guardian:: “Bradley Manning and the stench of US hypocrisy”
1:45 If you are just catching up to the Bradley Manning case, there’s a lengthy chapter on his arrest, background, and controversy up to early February. The print edition of The Age of WikiLeaks is here and e-book (also for phones, iPad etc.) here.
1:15 Glenn Greenwald rips Pentagon spokesman Morrell for misleading comments on Manning, also knocks NBC reporters Todd and Guthrie for not challenging him at all yesterday. Potemkin Village, revisited. And that’s even before latest update (see below).
