Julian Assange Responds to Increasing US Government Attacks on WikiLeaks
It’s been ten days since the whistleblower website WikiLeaks published the massive archive of classified military records about the war in Afghanistan, but the fallout in Washington and beyond is far from over. Justice Department lawyers are reportedly exploring whether WikiLeaks and its founder Julian Assange could be charged with violating the Espionage Act of 1917 for publishing the classified Afghan war documents. Meanwhile, investigators in the Army’s criminal division have reportedly questioned two students in Boston about their ties to WikiLeaks and Private First Class Bradley Manning, a leading suspect in the leak. We speak with WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange. [includes rush transcript–partial]

A “tangled web” has evolved…not unlike the wad of tangled hair one removes from a hairbrush after many uses. The public senses it; media “plays with it” and/or attempts to separate out of the tangle various single hairs; readers and listeners react to any and all hairs, while desperately trying to find the brush from which the hairs have come.
There are countless Lady Macbeths in this on-going tragedy of human civilization. (And don’t think I’m not constantly examining my own hands!)
