Read about or order my book The Age of WikiLeaks in print or as an e-book., or brand-new Bradley Manning: Truth and Consequences as e-book here and print here
UPDATE: This blog for Friday.
7:50 Now we’re really "getting down" to the important stuff — leaked video of alleged Assange on the dance floor!
7:25 My new piece, “Chatting With Bradley Manning,” on how chat logs dispute Frontline claim that turmoil in his personal life main reason for alleged decision to leak.
7:20 Computer scientists hit ruling on "Twitter 3."
5:15 Jeremy Scahill in big Nation piece makes use of key WikiLeaks cables on Yemen.
5:10 Michael Busch has now posted his lengthy interview with me up at the Institute for Policy Studies site.
3:25 Qaddafi “buxom Russian nurse,” allowed to leave him last month, now says she missed Libya: “According to Oksana, the Libyans seemed happy with their lives. Tripoli is a giant construction site today, she said. Gasoline is cheaper than water. In shops, they let you off if you are a couple of coins short—you can pay later.”
3:10 From the Norwegian paper Aftenposten: Norwegian soldiers only 500 yards away when six kidnapped in Afghanistan.
3:00 And now a word from my sponsor: My new book, Bradley Manning: Truth and Consequences, just published as e-book here and print here. Remember, e-book nowadays also means phones, iPad, PC reading, etc. Plus, first excerpt from the book (“From Oklahoma to Baghdad to Prison”) right here.
2:00 This bubbled up yesterday but now Fox News on it: Porn actors real names and HIV status leaked via a PornLeaks site. “This essentially ‘outed’ them to any passing Googler, which caused an uproar in the industry since many porn performers try to keep their real name secret, for obvious reasons,” Gawker’s Adrian Chen wrote. “That 15,000 names were on the list was significant, especially considering only about 1,200–1,500 performers are currently working in California’s Porn Valley.”
