Alex Gibney on ReasonTV Talks Bradley Manning, WikiLeaks, & War

John Glaser, May 23, 2013

“It’s terribly important that we see the horrors of war, because then we know what’s happening in our names,” Academy Award-winning documentary filmmaker Alex Gibney tells ReasonTV.

“If that stuff is kept secret, then we’re on our way to tyranny.”

In this ReasonTV interview, Gibney talks about Bradley Manning, Julian Assange, WikiLeaks, transparency and the horrors of the U.S. national security state.

Update: See here and here for WikiLeaks’s response to some of Gibney’s claims.

  2. This film is a hatchet job. Wikileaks has released the full transcript with lots of notes correcting all the lies and distortions, with links to evidence. Apparently, Gibney has got three of his interviewees telling flat-out lies straight to camera (and Wikileaks prove it, beyond any question). They also show how Gibney has deliberately ignored evidence they sent him by email during the filming and how he's edited stock footage so it ends up saying the exact opposite of the original quote, and how he's used a statement that an interviewee had already retracted. Another interviewee has complained he "filleted" her interview.

    Gibney is wittering on Twitter that the Wikileaks transcript has "cut out all Bradley Manning's words" he used in the film. What he doesn't say is he used all the stuff in Lamo's chatlogs about Manning's gender issues and other prejudicial stuff (I mean, LAMO's chatlogs – yeah, like they're trustworthy…), whereas Wikileaks' annotations on the transcript quote copiously from Bradley Manning's plea statement given to the court.

    Here, read this before you see the film.
