As I’ve done for more than nine 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: From Collateral Murder to Cablegate," here.
UPDATE: Read the Tuesday edition of this blog over here.
10:15 Human Rights Watch: Egypt welcomed more CIA detainees than any other country from 1990s through 2005.
7:35 David House in video talks about visit with Bradley Manning yesterday.
7:15 Do I need to say this again to the lazy cynics? WikiLeaks cables continue to prove valuable in so many ways. Just check out this piece by the estimable James Mann at Foreign Policy on what they show about U.S. – China relations, how tense they are "in real time," and how one state dinner won’t do much really.
7:10 @WikiLeaks tweets: "WikiLeaks releases 480 secret cables on Libya http://wikileaks.ch/reldate/2011-01-31_0.html ."
6:10 Heather Brooke of Guardian pokes some fun (via Twitter) at Telegraph for claiming Lockerbie scoop (see below) from cable– and links to Guardian story in December.
5:50 Another excerpt from The Guardian book which reveals that the paper’s editor refused to share cables it planned to use with the State Dept. in a dramatic phone call –even refused to give them their ID numbers. Yet the NYT, as editor Keller writes, shared quite a few and also decided not to publish some.
5:45 Another embarrassment from L.A. Times with headline: "R.I.P. WikiLeaks?"
5:10 We reported earlier the apparent deal with Assange passing WikiLeaks cables to The Telegraph after rift with Guardian. Now Telegraph reporting first purported scoop — on Lockerbie criminal release case. Writer, at end, admits he was wrong about not much interesting in cables, now that his paper is getting them. UPDATE: And another, on BP’s Russian arm cutting deals with "rogue states."
