Larry Rochelle, Author of OCCUPY FEARRINGTON, available on AMAZON Kindle.
Despite the bias of the journalists against Bradley Manning, the book is an informed account of the relationship between Bradley Manning and Julian Assange; and The Guardian and Wikileaks.
The writers (who were the journalists in collaboration with Julian Assange) present themselves and The Guardian as moral guardians who educated Julian Assange about media's ethics. While that's probably true, this aspect of the narrative felt like the writers are too eager to delineate their own position, and distance themselves from Assange.
Nevertheless, the writers debunk the spin and propaganda around the sexual assault charges against Julian Assange.
Written by one of Britains' most distinguished investigative journalists, it's a real page turner, full of twists and turns, that held my interest from beginning to end.
If the reader can bypass the writers bias, it's a must read for anyone interested in investigative and citizen journalism, and it's relationship to Whistleblowers.
Julian comes across as an intelligent man, driven by a fractured childhood. A gifted hacker who, by serendipitous circumstances crosses paths on the internet with a troubled young US Army private, who unbelievably had access to reams of sensitive military and diplomatic traffic.
This book, written under the auspices of The Guardian, gives us a shallow view of a silly imbroglio that by all rules of statecraft, should have never happened.
As is normal in today's America, no General or politico will be punished or relieved of duty. Everything will be focused on a kid just three years off the high-school playground.
Read the book, but don't expect much more than you already knew
