Ex-State Department spokesman compares WikiLeaks to New York Times
Source: Raw Story

The former Obama administration official who criticized the military's treatment of Bradley Manning is now casting doubt on the potential that WikiLeaks will be prosecuted.

Former U.S. State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley told Salon's Justin Elliot that prosecution would be difficult because "it is hard to distinguish what WikiLeaks did from what the New York Times did."

The comparison may not sit well with Times editor Bill Keller, who has published an unflattering profile of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

4. I haven't seen much form Wikileaks lately, Just anonymous and
60 Minutes picking up the baton. Have they revealed anything since the BOA download?

5. Not yet, to my knowledge.
Bear in mind that timing is very important for a thing like that, and at the moment the largest part of our attention is quite rightly fixed upon Japan.

6. The BoA download -- I was not aware that the big one happened -- where is it?
(There was a little one that was, I think, released by Anonymous.)
