Assange: Dig Down

Abby Zimet

Bravo to Julian Assange and Wikileaks, whose massive release of U.S. military files on Afghanistan show "the true nature of this war." Assange insists on the ancient and honorable duty of journalism to "take on powerful abuses" - including untold numbers of civilian deaths - and to tell an ugly truth that fewer and fewer media sources are willing to dig for. We salute him. Much powerful material here.
