The Business of Wikileaks

If one word sums up the news agenda in 2010, it’s “Wikileaks.” Kipp takes a closer look at the brains, money, and effort behind the whistle-blowing website.

In the past year, Wikileaks has revealed over 76,000 secret Afghan war documents and 392,000 files from the Iraq war into the public domain, making the leaks the largest breach of US military documents in history. But that hasn’t always been the site’s focus. So how did it start? Details on the sites creation are murky at best, but we’ll bow to Wired magazine:

“Wikileaks is believed to have been founded in 2006 by a group of political activists, journalists, and entrepreneurs who have never been named. It exists to allow people to anonymously submit otherwise-unavailable documents, which are then checked for legitimacy, edited and published on the web.

“Over the years that it’s been active, it’s released documents from a multitude of countries. The first was a decision to assassinate Somalian government officials signed by Sheikh Hassan Dahir Aweys. Since, it’s documented corruption in Kenya, the operating procedures at Guantanamo Bay, the “secret bibles” of Scientology, a list of BNP members, the UK’s postcode database, and 9/11 pager messages.”

Information about the organization and its running remain surrounded by secrecy. Little is known about the staff except for Wikileaks co-founder, director and spokesman Julian Assange, who has a history in internet and computer hacking.
