WikiLeaks: Pentagon ready to discuss Afghan files

WikiLeaks: Pentagon ready to discuss Afghan files 18 Aug 2010 WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said Wednesday the Pentagon has expressed willingness to discuss the online whistleblower's request for help in reviewing classified documents from the Afghan war and removing information that could harm civilians. "This week we received contact through our lawyers that the General Counsel of the U.S. Army says now that they want to discuss the issue," Assange told The Associated Press by telephone. In Washington, Army spokesman Col. Thomas Collins denied army lawyers are involved but said Assange might have meant to say the Pentagon lawyer instead.
