History of wikileaks

Assange’s website began life controversially but “Since 2010, however, it has been pretty hard to make the case that WikiLeaks is a neutral transmission system. Nearly all its major operations have targeted the U.S. government or American corporations. When WikiLeaks released U.S. government cables, its stated purpose was to reveal ‘the contradictions between the US’s public persona and what it says behind closed doors.’ By contrast, when it released Syrian government cables in July, Assange was quick to point out, ‘The material is embarrassing to Syria, but it is also embarrassing to Syria’s opponents.’ This at a time when 14,000 people had already been killed in the uprising against Bashar al-Assad’s regime”.
