Following the release of more than 90,000 classified military documents on whistle-blowing site Wikileaks, founder Julian Assange took part in a special event at the Frontline Club.
Assange talks about the impact of the documents that were released in partnership with The Guardian, The New York Times and German paper Der Spiegel which chronicle in minute detail U.S. military operations in the country between 2004 and 2010.
He also discusses the journalistic implications of the way the information has been released as well as talks through the possibilities for journalists and citizens using the vast amount of data available online.
Julian Assange is an Australian journalist, programmer and Internet activist, best known for his involvement with Wikileaks, a whistleblower website.
WikiLeaks editor-in-chief Julian Assange says his organization is not concerned with whether the sensitive information it leaks to the public poses a threat to U.S. national security. "States have national security concerns, we do not," says Assange. "We have concern for human beings."
