Julian Assange on Bank Leak

KROFT: Do you have a 5 GB hard drive?
ASSANGE: I won’t make any comment in relation to that upcoming publication.
KROFT: You’re certainly not denying it.
ASSANGE: You know there would be a process of elimination if we denied some and admitted some and denied others.
KROFT: So it it might not be Bank of America BofA and you’re just going to let them squirm until you get ready too –
ASSANGE: – I think it’s great to have all these banks squirming thinking maybe it’s them.
KROFT: You seem to enjoy stirring things up.
ASSANGE: Well, when you see abusive organizations suffer the consequences as a result of their abuse and you see victims elevated, yes that’s a very pleasurable activity to be involved in.

Israel urges world to curb criticism of Egypt’s Mubarak

From Haaretz:

Israel called on the United States and a number of European countries over the weekend to curb their criticism of President Hosni Mubarak to preserve stability in the region.

Jerusalem seeks to convince its allies that it is in the West’s interest to maintain the stability of the Egyptian regime. The diplomatic measures came after statements in Western capitals implying that the United States and European Union supported Mubarak’s ouster.
