Guardian Editor on Wikileaks at Democracy Now

This broadcast is a couple of days old now, but in response to the continued bleating about how the simultaneous publishing of the Wikileaks war logs by the NYTimes, Spiegel, and the Guardian puts the lives of the troops and civilian informants/collaborators in danger, here is Guardian editor David Leigh explaining how Wikileaks and the three papers, together with the White House, avoided that pitfall.

Assange has stated elsewhere that the month long collaboration between Wikileaks staff and the three papers was carried out in a room at the Guardian.

Many other interesting issues discussed in this interview which can be seen in its entirety at Democracy NOW. (h/t Toe in comments below)
