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 epic1934@aol.com. 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.

10:55 Can hardly believe there is now a tribute site for end of 185-day WikiLeaks blogging streak.  Man, they know about me and baseball all too well.  Thanks to all.  I am outta here about 1 pm, might be some news breaking about then….

7:50  BBC summarizes 2nd day of Irish Leaks.

7:45  Folks, I am off to Paris this afternoon and then on to visit with daughter, husband and new grandson in Nantes.   So that will be it for 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. … Thanks to one of the great contributors to the WikiLeaks (and other) cultural scenes,  @ExiledSurfer, for tribute to my streak at left, as I am pictured with Assange (his write-up here).  Not sure who is Joe D and who is Lou Gehrig.
