A episode I recorded with Conn Carroll of The Heritage Foundation is now posted. Above we discuss Wikileaks, its decision to publish classified information about the war in Afghanistan, and whether the US military should've worked with the stateless group to request the redaction of sensitive names.

Interestingly, I think neither one of us is remotely persuaded by the other's argument. (One factual matter I remain unclear on is whether Julian Assange broke US law.)

The rest of my conversation with Mr. Carroll can be found here.
