Raw Story reports on an interview that Julian Assange gave to the Australian news show Dateline.

Assange told SBS’ Mark Davis that the “material that we published through a Lebanese, Al Akhbar, newspaper was significantly influential to what happened in Tunisia.”

“And then there’s no doubt that Tunisia was the example for Egypt and Yemen and Jordan, and all the protests that have happened there,” he added.
