Ex-Hacker Adrian Lamo to Accept Salon.com's Offer to Rebut Wikileaks / Bradley Manning Story
The story author offered Lamo opportunity to rebut content in Salon's own pages, unedited and uncensored. Lamo is electing to accept that opportunity.
Salon's Greenwald proffered to Lamo that any response he had would be run unedited and uncensored on Salon.com. Following strange accusations of government collusion, Lamo decided to accept.
A journalist was tapped to fact-check Greenwald's work, and Lamo is engaged in penning his reply.
Although the reply is a work in progress, it is safe to assume that any response to allegations of a possible government plot will be lighthearted at best, as the issue does not merit serious reply.
Lamo's reply will be available this week.
