1. ten years ago,#WikiLeaks published the #CollateralMurder video depicting a #US Apache helicopter killing innocent civilians in Baghdad and laughing at the dead: collateralmurder.wikileaks.org The innocent civilians targeted included children and 2 #Reuters staffers
2. the #CollateralMurder video was NOT secret (and in fact it is NOT included in the list of classified documents at the center of the US indictment against Julian #Assange): after the death of its 2 staffers, #Reuters had tried to obtain the video filing a #FOIA at the #Pentagon
3. the Pentagon had rejected the #Reuters FOIA. Only thanks to the courage of #ChelseaManning, Julian #Assange and the #WikiLeaks journalists, it was possible to reveal the #CollateralMurder video

1. esattamente 10anni fa,#WikiLeaks pubblicava il video #CollateralMurder in cui si vedeva un elicottero americano Apache sparare su civili inermi a Baghdad mentre l'equipaggio rideva: collateralmurder.wikileaks.org
2. tra i civili inermi c'erano non solo bambini, ma anche due cameramen della #Reuters,che furono ammazzati. Il video NON era segreto,per questo #Reuters aveva provato a richiederne copia al #Pentagono con il #FOIA,ma il Pentagono aveva negato il rilascio
3. Solo il grande coraggio di #ChelseaManning che aveva accesso ai database classificati del governo americano ha permesso di rivelare #CollateralMurder. Il coraggio di Chelsea e il coraggio di Julian #Assange e dei giornalisti di #WikiLeaks che l'hanno pubblicato

"Consortium News today begins a series of articles, “The Revelations of #WikiLeaks,” that will look back on the major works of the publication that have altered the world since its founding in 2006."
"This series is an effort to counter mainstream media coverage, which is ignoring #WikiLeaks’ work, and instead is focusing on #JulianAssange’s personality. It is the uncovering by WikiLeaks of governments’ crimes and corruption that set the U.S. after #Assange..."

Whatever you think of #Assange personally, that does not matter. He’s a journalist. And if you don’t think he’s a real journalist, then he’s a real source. It’s one or the other — and both must be protected if freedom of the press means anything in Britain or the United States.
I used @WikiLeaks documents in my reporting, finding that 17 months before the Deepwater Horizon explosion that killed 11 people, the owner of that platform, BP, in connivance with the US State Dept, had covered up an identical blowout in the Caspian Sea. gregpalast.com/chelsea-mannin…
#CollateralMurder: The crime was committed by the US military in covering up war crimes. This was a tremendous service by #Assange, @xychelsea, and @WikiLeaks. They deserve the Congressional Medal of Honor, not prison time. Cc. @couragefound

1. buongiorno! per ora, continuiamo a smascherare le falsità dell'informazione italiana sul caso Julian #Assange, poi vi spiegherò perché in Italia l'offensiva contro Julian #Assange è particolarmente intensa

3. il giudice chiamò a testimoniare il capo della Task Force creata dal #Pentagono x stabilire rigorosamente se la pubblicazione di TUTTI i files segreti del governo USA leakati da #Manning (#CollateralMurder,#AfghanWarLogs,#IraqWarLogs,#Cablegate,#GitmoFiles)avesse causato danni
