Update on WikiLeaks Panel

At the Santa Fe conference this past fall, the two-hour panel on WikiLeaks featured a lively discussion on whether or not there have been any serious ramifications from the extensive leaks. The debate continues and on December 8, 2011, The Wall Street Journal published an op/ed Don’t Cry for Julian Assange by Floyd Abrams, noted First Amendment lawyer. Abrams argues that Julian Assange and WikiLeaks have exhibited “persistent recklessness” in such disclosures as a classified report describing the radio-frequency jammers used in Iraq by American soldiers to cut off signals to remotely detonated explosives.
