Internet Censorship Alert: Wikileaks

The Pentagon has been accused of spying on a whistleblower website that specialises in leaking top secret documents. The US Army has already labeled the website as a security threat. Now Wikileaks - which won Amnesty Internationals news media award last year - has issued a statement claiming its editors are being investigated: WikiLeaks is currently under an aggressive US and Icelandic surveillance operation.

In this excellent investigative segment, Jacques Peretti looks into Wikileaks, the anonymous whistle-blowing internet site. It features interviews with John Young of Cryptome and Julian Assange of Wikileaks.
