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 to early February, in print or as e-book.
UPDATE: Here’s the Wednesday edition of this blog.
8:55 WikiLeaks releases two new cables revealing Gaddafi Family Values, i.e. squabbles. Foreign Policy reports.
8:05 I love this: small San Diego weekly has been checking WikiLeaks often for any references to local concerns, and has found some beauties and oddities: "So far, these have included reports on a shady Russian politician with property in Carlsbad, a North County energy company investing in lawless southern Italy, Maria Shriver’s heart-to-heart with Sonia Gandi, and Congressman Darrell Issa’s scheming with Lebanese Brazilians.
"The stories keep coming, but sometimes they’re fairly minor. One cable mentions how the San Diego Natural History Museum and the San Diego Zoo were among the first buyers of chambira palm tree baskets from the Amazon. Another details how San Diego Community College was helping a Brazilian school develop a biotechnology curriculum."
7:00 Final day of cut price on print version of my "The Age of Wikileaks" book. E-book edition also available. Hailed by Dan Ellsberg, Glenn Greenwald, others. I am now selling foreign rights, contact me at address above if interested.
