An Australian man who is editor of the whistleblower website WikiLeaks has told SBS he suspects the Pentagon is concealing a damning report into its troops’ accidental killing of two journalists in Iraq in 2007.

Julian Assange says it is clear from the wording of the official report on the incident that a second probe was never released.
The official document does not discuss whether troops were within their rights to fire on the men because this was investigated in a ‘collateral report’, according to Assange, WikiLeaks’ co-founder.
“If you look really closely, you see this is not actually the report that looked in to whether the soldiers had followed the rules of engagement,” Assange told SBS.
“There’s actually another one that they did not release … because they say it is covered in a collateral investigation.”
