Wikileaks criticized by human rights groups

John Moe Aug 10, 2010

The Wall Street Journal reports on new criticisms of Wikileaks coming from a variety of human rights groups.  At issue is the redaction of names of Afghans who are helping the US effort against the Taliban. The groups, including Amnesty International, are concerned that by publishing these names, Wikileaks is putting lives at risk:

“Taliban representatives have said publicly that they are searching the documents and plan to punish people who have helped U.S. forces.”

Wikileaks is taking most of its responses to Twitter.
