As I’ve done for more than twelve 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 email@example.com, Read about or order my new book, The Age of WikiLeaks, just updated, in print or as e-book.
UPDATE: Here’s the Tuesday edition of this blog.
7:40 Love this: someone finally links WikiLeaks to my fave modern writer Graham Greene. It’s at Foreign Policy site. "Revenge of the Quiet American."
7:35 WikiLeaks just tweeted link to new t-shirt designs at its online store. Includes a "typographical Assange" and a WTF– WikiLeaks Task Force."
7:30 Fouad Ajami, who long ago was wise man, peddles embarrassing "everyone knew everything in WikiLeaks cables" nonsense here.
6:30 Jonathan Bernstein at The New Republic on WikiLeaks, "Curveball," and what do insiders really know, anyway?
4:10 Glenn Greenwald rips NYT for its "shameless" hiding of CIA alleged killer Davis at request of White House (see below), especially in light of Keller statements vs. Assange. Times called him a "diplomat" while knowing it was a lie, he points out. "With some noble exceptions, loyally serving government dictates is, like so many American establishment media outlets, what they do; it’s their function: hence the name ‘establishment media.’"
3:45 Major new Wash Post piece by the veteran Walter Pincus on what cables show about U.S. and Bahrain. For one thing: "The cables released Wikileaks also show that U.S. military, intelligence and diplomatic relationships with Bahrain run much deeper than just the presence of the Fifth Fleet headquarters and the Naval Support Activity facility, which also serves as home for other American units."
