[tor-talk] Tor and WikiLeaks


Transcript of secret meeting between Julian Assange and Google CEO Eric Schmidt
Friday April 19, 2013

On the 23 of June, 2011 a secret five hour meeting took place between
WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange, who was under house arrest in
rural UK at the time and Google CEO Eric Schmidt.

Also in attendance was Jared Cohen, a former Secretary of State
advisor to Hillary Clinton, Scott Malcomson, Director of Speechwriting
for Ambassador Susan Rice at the US State Department and current
Communications Director of the International Crisis Group, and Lisa
Shields, Vice President of the Council on Foreign Relations.

Schmidt and Cohen requested the meeting, they said, to discuss ideas
for "The New Digital World", their forthcoming book to be published on
April 23, 2013.

We provide here a verbatim transcript of the majority of the meeting;
a close reading, particularly of the latter half, is revealing.
