Now: Assange v. Singh in India's Cablegate

Wikileaks founder accuses of Indian PM of lying to the public

WikiLeaks head Julian Assange accused Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh of lying to the public by claiming US diplomatic cables were not authentic that allegedly suggest that the PM's Congress Party bribed legislators to drop their opposition to the India-US nuclear deal during a 2008 parliamentary trust vote, the Times of India reports

"The comments I have been hearing from Prime Minister Singh these, to me, seem to be a deliberate attempt to mislead the public by suggesting that governments around the world do not accept the material," TOI quoted Assange as saying in a TV interview.
