WikiLeaks Criminal Complaint Claims U.S. Seized Leaked Garani Bombing Video – Forbes

“I am informed by my legal advisors that this formal document may trigger an investigation and that independent judicial bodies may seek explanations of the responsible authorities as a result,” writes Assange in his statement to the Swedish government. “I request that Swedish judicial authorities act swiftly to question and arrest if necessary those who are likely to have information about or bear criminal responsibility for the actions taken against WikiLeaks and my person as detailed in this affidavit.”A Swedish arrest warrant for visiting U.S. officials on charges of seizing their own illegally leaked materials, of course, seems unlikely. Assange’s statement acknowledges as much. “I file this affidavit in the knowledge that there will likely be pressures for this matter not to be investigated, but in the knowledge that the law requires an investigation,” he writes.Assange’s affidavit puts the spotlight back on the unpublished Garani airstrike video, which is thought to have captured a B-1 Bomber attack on a target in the Farah province of Afghanistan in 2009. The strike killed somewhere between dozens and 150 civilians, depending on various estimates from the U.S. and Afghan governments. The U.S. government has apologized for the incident and released the results of a formal investigation, but never published the video.
