Scott interviews Andy Worthington about his testimony in Julian Assange’s extradition hearing. Worthington reminds us how important the revelations in Chelsea Manning’s Guantanamo Files leak were, stressing just how much harm has been done to the dozens of men held, and often tortured, there—including the 40 who are still detained today. Assange, says Worthington, is not a hacker or a hostile intelligence actor; he is simply a heroic journalist working to expose government crimes to the people.
