Rop Gonggrijp, Wikileaks and Americans in Iraq

In the Netherlands Rop Gonggrijp is best well as computer and Internet specialist. He was co-founder of XS4ALL, which was - to my knowledge - the first successful Internet provider in the Netherlands. He is also a longstanding advocate of privacy and civil rights, especially in the digital world. In January 2011 he got the worrying news that the U.S. authorities demanded Twitter all data about him in connection with their witch hunt against Wikileaks. The cause of this was the fact he helped to realise  the video "Collateral Damage" in april 2010.
