Australia 'helps US target WikiLeaks staff'

Post by Rickster58 on Sat Feb 12, 2011 4:41 pm

There was an interesting Panorama BBC documentary on last night on WikiLeaks and secrets. Ive posted the link in Janeys breaking news.

Also if you keep an eye on Europe room, Luna and myself have been keeping an eye on Julian Assanges extradition court case.
