What should the government be able to keep secret? Were the WikiLeaks a good thing?
The release of secret U.S. State Department diplomatic cables by WikiLeaks has prompted a draconian response, ranging from calls for founder Julian Assange's assassination to repeated attempts to shut down WikiLeaks and its satellite Web sites. Attacks from leading American political and media figures -- not to mention Assange's arrest -- suggest that it's a far graver sin to expose secrets than to govern under their aegis.
Clayton Morgareidge hosts this Old Mole episode centering around war, weapons of war, threats of war, and the national security state. We hear from David Krieger, an expert on nuclear weapons and their abolition; from the Movie Moles about Daniel Ellsberg and the parallels with Julian Assange; from Larry Bowlden about a novel raising questions about war reporting; and, in a piece presented by Clayton, from Tom Engelhardt on the growth of the national security state.
How does the State create the fear needed to justify its extreme security measures, and what does it cost us? Clayton Morgareidge comments on and reads from Tom Engelhardt's piece "The National Security State Cops a Feel" from the website of the American Empire Project.
