Julian Assange is alive and doing what he knows best – leaking documents. The controversial WikiLeaks founder has recently leaked a new batch of diplomatic “cables”, but the big amount of data makes finding anything interesting very hard.
The main problem with WikiLeaks replacing investigative journalism is that there’s no investigation or journalism at all, but that’s the way we get our news in today’s society. But, have you ever wondered what is Assange’s ulterior motive? Is it just to undermine governments around the world or is there something other behind it all? The amount of data leaked until now is staggering. Here’s a report on the recent leaks by Dailycaller:
“WikiLeaks Releases More Than Half A Million US Diplomatic Cables
WikiLeaks released Monday more than half a million U.S. diplomatic cables from the year 1979.
“If any year could be said to be the ‘year zero’ of our modern era, 1979 is it,” Assange said in a press release. “In the Middle East, the Iranian revolution, the Saudi Islamic uprising and the Egypt-Israel Camp David Accords led not only to the present regional power dynamic but decisively changed the relationship between oil, militant Islam and the world,” he added.
The total number of documents in the WikiLeaks’ diplomatic cable collection is now 3.3 million, with the addition of these new 531,525 cables.”
