Why WikiLeaks is important

Glenn Greenwald: The war on WikiLeaks and why it matters. Short version: The CIA is concerned about manipulating public opinion in Europe to maintain the support of various governments for the war, and is concerned that if WikiLeaks continues their work in bringing hidden documents to light, ie: if the truth comes out, it could galvanize public opinion against the war and undermine those efforts.
