WikiLeaks founder Julian AssangeThe Pentagon is attempting to quash coverage of its activities by alleging that any reporter seeking classified information is collaborating with the source and guilty of conspiracy to commit espionage, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange says.

In an interview published in “Rolling Stone” magazine, Assange, now under house arrest in England, said the Pentagon demanded “we not only destroy everything we had ever published or were ever going to publish in relation to the U.S. government, but that we also stop ‘soliciting’ information from U.S. government employees.”

War, Occupation, and Massacre

civilian-casualtiesThe latest massacre in Afghanistan is just one more in a long history of US atrocities. Most of these acts by US troops go unnoticed - hardly rating a mention on the nightly news. Why has this news report broken through the wall of silence? And why is there a media reaction to it? The media has ignored so many other atrocities. When interviewed by Leslie Stahl on CBS, Sixty Minutes (May 12, 1996) Secretary of State Madeleine Albright stated that the deaths of 500,000 Iraqi children were worth it.
