As I’ve done for nearly six months, I’m updating news and views on all things WikiLeaks and Bradley Manning all day, with new items added at the top. All times ET. Contact me at Read about my books The Age of WikiLeaks in print or as an e-book, and Bradley Manning: Truth and Consequences as e-book here and print here.

UPDATE:  Here is Wednesday edition of this blog.

7:50  Belfast Telegraph joins The Independent in Dublin in covering the new IrishLeaks.   Too bad Bloody Sunday predates.

6:00 Folks, I am off to Paris tomorrow afternoon and then on to visit with daughter, husband and one-year-old grandson in Nantes.   So that will be final day of the consecutive day streak for this WikiLeaks blog, ending streak (for now) at 185 days — starting with the run-up to the first cable releases back in late November.   Well, it lasted more than three times as long as Joe DiMaggio’s 56-game hitting streak — and what few know is that the day after Joe D’s streak stopped, he started another long one….So this is not end of the blog but the (first) streak. 

5:50  Heritage Foundation writer, in wake of WikiLeaks and related hacking, calls for "cyber-counter-insurgency" drive.

5:30  My book The Age of WikiLeaks in print or as an e-book, or Bradley Manning: Truth and Consequences as e-book here and print here, both hailed by Glenn Greenwald, Dan Ellsberg, Bill Moyers, Amy Goodman.

"In diplomatic cables released this week on the WikiLeaks website, embassy officials said they had ‘credible and compelling information’ that Supreme Court Justice Winston Spadafora took bribes to influence court cases."

1:50  New 7-minute video from Demooracy Now:  former Honduras president Zelaya on what he learned about coup from WikiLeaks.

7:00 You, too? WikiLeaks’s Irish leak launches via Independent : How US got Ireland’s secrets. Whole package covers thirteen pages and you can see brief video that probably was the Assange TV ad some spotted yesterday..

6:55 Pentagon says hacking can be act of war.

6:00 Another Wikileaks game.

12:05 Wall Street Journal covers PBS hack attack, and broader view.

12:00 Taking his hacks: Tupac announces he’d rather be dead than live in New Zealand, “like those Conchord dudes,” disappears again.

From late Monday

Frontline site appears back to normal—for now. See below for the wild hacking of past day.

A correspondent e-mails: “Thought you’d like to know that Julian Assange has been appearing in a TV ad running in Ireland today. In the ad, he says that the Ireland Wikileaks cables will be published this week in the Irish Independent. There’s also this tweet from Irish Independent journalist:!/fionnansheahan/status/75290599019913216.”

After Frontline and PBS issue statement on hacking (se below)—disappears and hacked again.

PBS and Frontline issue statement denouncing hacking of their site, calling it “chilling, “but say nothing essential compromised. However, Frontline chooses to also use this as a defense of its WikILeaks show. Note wording: program got both praise and criticism but critics were “supporters” of Manning and Assange, not anyone with legit journalist issues. Also, they suggest they sought out comments from Assange and David House—when what actually happened was that they weighed in out of the blue during an online chat.

More on the PBS hack, from Parmy Olson at Forbes. Before the fake Tupac story was taken down it had gotten a lot of “likes.” Hacker, not affilitated with Anonymous (as reporter earlier), claims he/she was not happy with that Frontline WikIleaks saga. Also posted some user names and more )see below)..
