Wikileaks to release files about deadly US airstrike on Afghan civilians

Washington Post

06/21/10

Wikileaks.org plans to release as soon as this week documents related to a U.S. airstrike that killed Afghan civilians last year and plans to release combat footage of the incident this summer, the founder of the whistleblower site said in an interview Monday. Julian Assange said the documents pertain to an attack near the Afghan village of Garani, which killed scores of civilians in May 2009.

Wanted by the CIA: Wikileaks founder Julian Assange

Belfast Telegraph [Ireland]

07/19/10

“There are not many journalists who, when you ask them if they are being followed by the CIA, say ‘We have surveillance events from time to time.’ Actually it’s not a question I’ve ever asked before, and Julian Assange does not call himself a journalist. But the answer is typical of this 41-year-old former computer-hacker: cryptic, dispassionate, and faintly self-important. As the founder of Wikileaks, Assange has become the pin-up of web-age investigative journalists. The US has wanted him for questioning since March, after he posed a video showing an American helicopter attack that left several Iraqi civilians and two Reuters journalists dead. Understandably, he now avoids the US, and keeps his movements secret, though it’s thought he operates out of Sweden and is spending time in Iceland, where a change in the law is creating a libel-free haven for journalists. But if the CIA spooks wanted him that badly, couldn’t they have turned up, as a hundred adoring student journalists did, to hear him talk at the Centre for Investigative Journalism 10 days ago?
