BBC Reports on particulars of Wikileaks information released in but the few hundred pages of thousands that international newspapers chose to review. They interview John Verdi, the Director of Open Government Project who says that there is no question that WikiLeaks should not be closed down when pushed by the host of BBC News whether that should occur.

"They've provided a tremendous amount of information..."

"...the reality is that the issues on which WikiLeaks has published documents are really the big issues confronting American voters, British voters and voters around the world - when they ask themselves whether their elected officials and appointed officials are prosecuting the war on terrorism or other foreign policies in a way that's consistent with their values."

2. Why don't they do it themselves
Why are all the middle east countries wanting America to bomb Iran. If they feel that much of a threat do it themselves.
It would be just another reason for the middle east to hate the United States.

5. Two headlines, one report
on the scroll below the YT post I was watching, it said BBC Condemns wikileaks. I thought it would be an update of the YT post I was watching, 'BBC Showcases wikileaks. Nope, same story-different headlines. Remarkable.

6. I know - the YT title is nothing like the video says

I was expecting the announcer or at least the reporter to say something critical about WikiLeaks - but really nothing. And it turned out the video actually ended up putting WikiLeaks in a good light, given the title on YT said it 'condemned' them.

must be damage control working the YouTubes
