The Wikileaks.org disclosure of over 90,000 classified military documents continues to send shock waves through Washington and the world, and tonight, "Nightline" brings you an interview with Julian Assange, the founder of Wikileaks.org. The reports, which represent one of the biggest leaks in intelligence history, detail American military actions in Afghanistan in extreme and excruciating detail. While the documents contain disturbing information concerning civilian casualties and enemy missile strikes, perhaps the most troubling revelation suggests that Pakistan's military spy agency, the ISI, has been double crossing the United States. Though the White House and others have criticized the release of the war logs, Assange insists he did the right thing. Read the ABCNews.com article HERE "What we are doing is taking the 1st Amendment and giving it to the world," he said. Tune in tonight for Jim Sciutto's interview with Assange, and check out Martha Raddatz's report below: Do you think Assange should have released the documents?
