10:20  Philosophy Prof. Jonathan Lear suggests what moved State Dept. spokesman PJ Crowley to speak out about Manning. 

5:10  Bradley Manning’s attorney David Coombs explains new "mail policy" for client.  "PFC Manning is eligible to receive mail from anyone who wishes to write to him.  However, the Joint Regional Correctional Facility (JRCF) does place certain restrictions on what can be sent to the facility.  The JRCF will reject any mail that violates postal regulations or contains obscenity, blackmail, contraband or threats.  In addition, the JRCF has provided the following list of authorized and unauthorized items…." 

5:05  Assange warns, in that ceremony today where he got peace prize medal (see below) that no other site could be trusted with leaks, a slap at the new WSJ portal and others.   "How are you to assess whether these people will sell you out, as the WSJ permits in its terms and conditions to sell you out any time they like?"  And more from his remarks.

5:00  WikiLeaks scares Canada into admitting it could suffer massive diplo leaks itself — and needs to take action.

12:10  Assange wearing his Sydney Peace Prize gold medal awrded today in London.  Catch up with his remarks via @Asher_Wolf at twitter.

10:15  Important reply from longtime NYT legal counsel James C. Goodale to horrid WSJ column over the weekend uring prosecution of Assange.  "According to reports in the press, the government has given up trying to prosecute WikiLeaks under the Espionage Act because of the difficulty it sees in such prosecution. Instead, the government is trying to end-run the Espionage Act by attempting to show that Assange conspired with Bradley Manning to violate the Espionage Act and conspired with Bradley Manning to violate relevant computer laws.

"These efforts to end-run the Espionage Act also have their own First Amendment problems and should not succeed. The government tried to use this general tactic against The New York Times to prosecute the Times following publication of the Pentagon Papers. These efforts failed."

David Corn in Mother Jones: A "chillng" section in one of the Gitmo files suggests that an "anthrax operative" owns four pharmacies in New York City.   "Either the information regarding this suspect is accurate or not.
