1. ten years ago,#WikiLeaks published the #CollateralMurder video depicting a #US Apache helicopter killing innocent civilians in Baghdad and laughing at the dead: 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
4. To do great journalism, you need courageous sources and courageous journalists. The New York Times tried to hide the #JamesRisen and #EricLichtblau's scoop on #NSA for more than a year, until Risen was ready to scoop its own newspaper by publishing his scoop in his book
5. a month after revealing the #CollateralMurder video, #ChelseaManning, one of the greatest journalistic sources of all times, was arrested. She is STILL in prison. Seven months after, Julian #Assange was arrested. He is STILL in prison
6. while #ChelseaManning has spent 8years in prison,Julian #Assange has never known freedom again,the #Reuters editor(who had sent the 2staffers to film) had a #nervousBreakdown,soldiers&spies who have committed #WarCrimes in #Iraq,#Afghanistan,#Gitmo are free as the air
7. many media (if not most) have spent the last 10 years crucifying Julian #Assange for the victims and crimes that never were rather than asking for accountability to the soldiers and spies who have contributed to kill and torture millions
