DID YOU HAVE AVE ANY IDEA? with Noam CHOMSKY from CaTV on Vimeo.

"Julian Assange should be congratulated for carrying out the responsibilities of a citizen in democratic societies, where the population should be aware of what their selected representatives are doing and planning.
The Wikileaks revelations have surely advanced such awareness and understanding, and are a valuable contribution for that reason".
December 2011

public should find out and choose for themselves
terrorists - means somebody who does something that we don't like
nelson mandela just got off the terrorist list - 
suddam hussein - 1982 - removed iraq from the terrorist list, famous handshake
gap on list - because of hussein removed - so put cuba on
when suddam was tried and hanged it was for 1982 - if they had attributed to true crimes - would have shown us supporting him
last part of pentagon papers 1968 - issue of sending in troops. couple hundred to send - wanted to keep - to keep order of civil upraising - graphic illustration of how a public non-violent protest can inspire - 
this came from a leak - but hasn't made it to the public, not because of censorship - but because of unwillingness
