- Julian Assange, founder of WikiLeaks

There’s a history of abusing the media and public opinion, too. Assange happens to be a pro at it. But you won’t learn that in Philip Shenon’s interview with him for The Daily Beast. The two discuss the new Afghanistan “carnage” video Assange claims he’ll release, and how the US government’s displeasure over the news has compelled Assange to take hiding overseas, just to be on the safe side:
