Tuesday with Julian

Yesterday, Amy Goodman interviewed Julian Assange, founder and editor-in-chief of Wikileaks, on Democracy Now. Wikileaks is the media outlet that published close to 400,000 classified US military records on the war in Iraq.

The documents contain things from Frago 242, “a classified order” that “the US military not intervene in these cases of Iraqi police and Iraqi officials committing torture” to “a little girl on the street, who would–in a yellow dress, who would frequently go to collect candy and so on from US troops, one day a tank goes past, and for an inexplicable reason, a shooter comes out of the US tank and blows her away.”

Let’s listen in as Mr. Assange talks about these classified documents.
