democracynow – Apr 8, 2013

www.democracynow.org – The whistleblowing website WikiLeaks has just published “the Kissinger cables,” 1.7 million U.S. diplomatic and intelligence documents from 1973 to 1976 that include many once-secret memos written by former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger. While the documents have been available to the public at the National Archives, WikiLeaks has created a searchable online database to allow anyone in the world to quickly search them. WikiLeaks founder and editor Julian Assange reportedly did most of the work creating the database from his refuge in Ecuador’s embassy in London. WikiLeaks spokesperson Kristinn Hrafnsson joins us to discuss the documents’ release. Hrafnsson also comments on the recent anniversary of the release of the “Collateral Murder” military video, which shows U.S. forces killing 12 people in the Iraqi suburb of New Baghdad — including two Reuters employees, Saeed Chmagh and Namir Noor-Eldeen. After the video’s release, Hrafnsson met with family members of the victims in Iraq.

  7. Now we’re getting somewhere…bravo!

    I remember only too well my response to the Orwellian spectre of Kissinger’s televised address to the UN general assembly in ’73 or ’74.

    Every time I’ve witnessed “collateral murder,” my stomach churns and my body chemistry races from disgust, distress and suppressed rage ~ massively augmented by the horror of our post-facto knowledge about those innocent children.

    • When I hear the beginning of the video, Collateral Murder, I don’t watch it. But at the same time, I strongly believe it should be available for the public to see. Real war, real deaths. Something the corporate media likes to ignore, of course.
