Glenn Greenwald Interview of Adrian Lamo, 6-17-2010

Part 1, transcribed by bmull:

Lamo: “I contacted Army authorities through an intermediary late the day after [we first chatted], rather I got the ball rolling on that. I wanted to make sure we had the right team for the job, so I asked a friend of mine to find who at Army CID was good at this sort of investigation, who would handle it right and who would handle it sensitively.”

Part 2, transcribed by calamar:

Lamo: “I’ll bet you either ten bucks or a beer at a hacker conference that [Manning] doesn’t do more than six months.”
