Gates Asks FBI to Aid WikiLeaks Case

Defense Secretary Robert Gates asked the FBI on Thursday to assist in the WikiLeaks investigation, so that it can potentially cover subjects who are not in the military. He refused to say whether journalists or WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange could be charged, but Admiral Mike Mullen had harsh words for Assange and his source, saying they could “already have on their hands the blood of some young soldier or that of an Afghan family.”
