The NYT and WikiLeaks

The NY Times posted a brief video of Executive Editor Bill Keller and others describing the Times’ involvement last year with WikiLeaks’ release of U.S. government military and diplomatic documents.  At 6.5 minutes it is not an in-depth story, but it provides some interesting information.  For instance, the Times, not WikiLeaks, redacted the names of Afghan informants from the military field reports.  Julian Assange was prepared to release the entire document trove without redaction.
