New documents released by the site WikiLeaks provide an increasingly clear--and chilling--picture of the war in Afghanistan. Katrina vanden Heuvel notes that the documents, released simultaneously by The Guardian, the New York Times, and Germany's Der Spiegel, as well as in full by WikiLeaks, are an example of "asymmetrical media," allowing the public to access the raw documents as well as the parts filtered by the traditional press. In addition to the WikiLeaks revelations, Katrina joins us in studio for The Nation on GRITtv to discuss the Netroots Nation conference, JournoList and Andrew Breitbart, Elizabeth Warren, tax cuts, and new ways to cut down on Wall Street's power.
