Public Disclosure

WikiLeaks claims to be working to keep governments and secret organizations in check by publishing classified information, but who is checking up on WikiLeaks? "It has proclaimed itself the 'intelligence service of the people', and plans to have more agents than the CIA. They will be you and me. WikiLeaks is a long way from that goal, but this week it staked its claim to be the dead drop of choice for whistleblowers after releasing video the Pentagon claimed to have lost of US helicopter crews excitedly killing Iraqis on a Baghdad street in 2007. The dead included two Reuters news agency staff. The release of the shocking footage prompted an unusual degree of hand-wringing in a country weary of the Iraq war, and garnered WikiLeaks more than $150,000 in donations to keep its cash-starved operation on the road."
