I thought this was very interesting analysis and thought-provoking recitation of the events of WikiLeaks. It didn't really change my opinion of Julian Assange.

Greg Mitchell's dispatches on media coverage of the Iraq war have been among the most useful dispatches on that imperial nightmare. Unfortunately it seems he didn't get much time or much pay for this book, which is a good and smart read but is too short and a could have used more work. That said, it's well worth reading, especially for those wondering about the validity of what they've read and heard in the corporate press on wikileaks.
