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: The Wednesday version of this blog.
10:40 Wash Post with big take on what was mainly first reported by McClatchy last week–on mental health specialist advising that Bradley Manning not be sent to Iraq. Report attributes much of this to Manning’s problems with a "personal relationship." Some have accused Army of "leaking" this infomation now.
10:35 NY Magazine covers the WikiLeaks 9/11 cables and the plotters who got away that we noted earlier below.
10:30 And the hits keep on coming: new cable with report on radioactive uranium from U.S. allegedly found in the Philippines in 2007, nine bricks, for sale.
10:25: Just scheduled, doing book salon "chat" at FireDogLake on Thursday re: new book, details here.
7:55 I noted earlier this very angle, but here’s Marcy Wheeler at FDL on NYT turning over cables to State Dept before publishing while Guardian refused.
5:45 Australia’s prime minister rejects Assange’s plea for help in extradition fight, but says he can return home, like a good boy, when it’s all over.
4:40 Seemingly major news break via WikiLeaks’ new partnership with The Telegraph — the 9/11 plotters who got away. From Qatar. Not sure what to make of it — perhaps old story, much ado about little — but in several parts, here’s one. And here’s another, on how they fled to London. And this on how our 9/11 Commission mentioned that such accomplices might have existed and fled.
