‘All lies’: how the US military covered up gunning down two journalists in Iraq | US news | The Guardian

Assange, he says, brought the truth of the killings to the world and exposed the lie that he and others had not.“What he did was 100% an act of truth-telling, exposing to the world what the war in Iraq looks like and how the US military lied.”
