Why the world needs WikiLeaks: Julian Assange on TED.com

Posted by: Tedstaff

The controversial website WikiLeaks collects and posts highly classified documents and video. Founder Julian Assange, who’s reportedly being sought for questioning by US authorities, talks to TED’s Chris Anderson about how the site operates, what it has accomplished — and what drives him. The interview includes graphic footage of a recent US airstrike in Baghdad. (Recorded at TEDGlobal 2010, July 2010 in Oxford, UK. Duration: 19:34)
