New Statesman piece on Wikileaks

New Statesman has a must-read piece by the redoubtable John Pilger on “Why Wikileaks must be protected.”

A sample:

I like Julian Assange’s dust-dry wit. When I asked him if it was more difficult to publish information in Britain, with its draconian secrecy laws, he replied: “We haven’t found a problem. When we look at Official Secrets Act labelled documents, we see that they state it is an offence to retain the information and an offence to destroy the information. So the only possible outcome is to publish the information.”
