Afghan leak: Wikileaks' Assange denies 'blood on hands'


www.bbc.co.uk

The founder of the website Wikileaks has rejected US claims he has blood on his hands after releasing 90,000 leaked classified documents on the Afghan war.

Julian Assange told the BBC there was no evidence that any informants had died as a result of the leaks.

He accused the Pentagon of trying to distract attention from the thousands of lives being lost in the war.

This is just typical.

The good work that Wikileaks is doing is unsurprisingly coming under attack from the Military Industrial Complex of the United States.

This also falls in line with the strategy that the CIA / FBI / NSA authored (that was leaked to Wikileaks) in which they seek to undermine the moreal authority, and source integrity of Wikileaks.

I am a supporter of Wikileaks, however in my view, they will need to step up their release of damaging materials relating to the US Military, and soon - or they will lose the PR battle. Wikileaks has them worried, and rightly so - but you don't take on the most powerful government in the world and expect to come out smelling of roses!

I think ATS would do well to have an interview with Julian Assange or something similar?

Parallex.

Assange is 100% correct. It's too bad the MSM is focusing on whether or not his actions were "the right thing to do" rather than informing the public about the actual atrocities covered in the leaks...

I've been a staunch supporter ever since they first popped up.

But they're starting to smell...

Osama orchestrating attacks? Outright denial of a 9/11 conspiracy?

Sure, I mean, Osama could be alive and 9/11 could have been carried out by Al Qaeda... but to make these claims without evidence and to make these statements in such a matter-of-fact tone within in the confines of documents which deal mainly with actual military action is a bit strange.

Yet to be swayed either way, Assange, if you read this, leak something worthy of being called a leak.

I didn't know whether to laugh or cry when I read that the Secretary of Defense had accused Julian Assange of having "blood on his hands" as a result of the recent document leaks. The SECDEF's hypocracy indeed knows no bounds.

The old saw about pots and kettles comes to mind (or perhaps it was the one about glass houses and stones).

Seems like Wikileaks has become a thorn under somebodys' saddle blanket!

Thanks for the thread - S&F

It great to be young and idealistic. In reality you have no clue, but your young and idealistic.... All of us was at one time and some of us have lived to old age with some wisdom.

Assuange will have the blood of hundreds on his hands when all is said and done. The Taliban will have all the named sources killed along with their families in the next few years. Assange was too stupid to realize this as he has tunnel vision in trying to bring done the man.

He's no hero, no one to look up to; nothing more than an opportunist trying to make a buck. At some point, wikileaks will go away and then expect him to write a book about his "been there, done that" life.

Yeah, it's great to be young and idealistic, enjoy it while you can. The best advice I can offer is something told to me long ago. "A young fool has the ability to grow into an old fool unless he does something stupid".

yeah right you are assuming the US and British forces dont "accidently" kill them 1st. Also why are foreign troops in Afghanistan? I am almost certain they was not invited. Another thing if Assange was ever to get blood on his hands it would be far less than the blood on the US And British hands whose jobs is to protect civilians. THey have killed more civilians and friends than they have killed taliban.

guys there are a lot of interviews out there from Assange


he said he offered the opportunity to the US gov to censor the names, they didnt respond

read above

plus

he said in an interview that all those accusations are non sense, until today there is no proof that any person is in danger and come on ... the US got its chance to save lives, but they choose the other side ...

and their idea is simple: disclose everything ... off course, trying to minimize these dangers but we need them more than anything else

lets hope Assange uses this to release some more heavy stuff to counter them

follow @wikileaks at twitter, a lot of news and interviews are linked there
