The Arrest of Julian Assange and What It Means for WikiLeaks

Hosted by

As the world copes with online document dumps by WikiLeaks, Julian Assange has been jailed in England. Has he made the work of American diplomats harder than ever, or created a new standard of openness and accountability? Has he violated the law? Also, President Obama defends his tax-cut compromise, and Thomas Porteous of New Orleans has become the eighth federal judge in history to be removed by the US Senate.
