1. The Ethics of WikiLeaks

I have to confess that I was not familiar with the Web site WikiLeaks until last April when it posted a video that purported to show U.S. forces killing Iraqi civilians. Then in July, the site released an Afghan War Diary that included nearly 77,000 documents related to the war in Afghanistan, many of which had been classified documents, and some of which allegedly reveal wrongdoings by the U.S. military in Afghanistan. Shortly thereafter, Bradley Manning, a 22-year-old U.S. Army intelligence analyst, was arrested for leaking the documents. It’s not clear at this point whether Manning was responsible for the leak or what charges the government might eventually bring against him.

Sounds like it be a great 'listen'! I'll see if I can find a site to listen.
