Greg Mitchell, author of the Media Fix blog for TheNation.com, discusses Julian Assange’s extradition hearing and the possibility of a non-public trial in Sweden; Donald Rumsfeld’s 800 page defense of his legacy, where he expresses regret about “misstatements” rather than apologizing for lying us into war; how the WikiLeaks revelations have become so numerous that we need reminding of them already; and why delays in the promised Guantanamo prisoner files and bank documents could mean WikiLeaks is struggling to survive.
