Glenn Greenwald, constitutional lawyer and contributing editor at Salon, said today that secrecy is a “religion” of governments. The consent for such secrecy by the masses is a faithful example of conscientious ignorance, but a free society is no institution is immune to scrutiny and WikiLeaks, a site for whistleblowers to confidentially shed light on institutional secrets, is a crucial barrier between freedom and slavery.
Earlier this month, the site’s heroic founder, Julian Assange, spoke with TED.com’s Chris Anderson about the vital role his site has to play in society, the organization’s methods, the line between legitimate and illegitimate secrecy (19:34):

Glenn Greenwald, consitutional lawyer and blogger at Salon, discussed the case of Pfc. Bradley Manning—the 22-year-old U.S. Army intelligence analyst in Iraq kidnapped by the U.S. military for reportedly leaking the Collateral Murder video, the May 2009 Garani Massace in Afghanistan and a quarter-million diplomatic cables to WikiLeaks—at AntiWar Radio with Scott Horton. He added that the government and media smear tactics against Pfc. Manning are typical U.S. government tactics vilify its heroic enemies, like it did with Daniel Ellsburg when he leaked the Pentagon Papers (9:53):
