Pvt Manning proves ‘slippery slope’

Bradley Manning, the Army intelligence analyst accused of leaking a massive trove of classified material to WikiLeaks, has been imprisoned since May 2010. The treatment to which he has been subjected, including protracted isolation, systematic humiliations and routinised sleep deprivation, got more extreme last week when the commander of the brig at Quantico, Virginia, imposed on him a regime of forced nakedness at night and during an inspection of his cell every morning until his clothing is returned.

Legal expert slams Assange case

A former chief prosecutor in Sweden has criticised his country's handling of the case against Julian Assange, founder of whistleblowing website WikiLeaks. Sven-Erik Alhem, appearing at the second day of a hearing in London to decide whether Assange should be extradited to Sweden, said it was "quite peculiar" that investigators in his country did not obtain Assange's version of events before issuing an arrest warrant.

WikiLeaks Transforming journalism

So, as a move away from the occasional leaked document, reporting on press conferences and working from press releases, will WikiLeaks shift the standards of journalism? Moreover, will WikiLeaks usher in more control over the internet, when it was precisely the control of information that it sought to undermine? Are we in the midst of the first information war?

Net freedom ‘at stake’ on WikiLeaks

Since the release of the 'Collateral Murder' video in April of this year, Julian Assange has been a hunted man, with calls for everything from treason (rather ineffective, given that Assange is an Australian citizen) to vigilante justice. Now, in the wake of Cablegate, it is no longer just Assange and his cronies, or WikiLeaks, but Internet freedom that is at risk. For some time, free speech activists have expressed concern about the powers that private companies have over online speech, an issue dubbed "intermediary censorship" by researcher Ethan Zuckerman.
