After reading this thread I was a bit baffled to say the least.
Wikileaks is not just Julian Assange, it consists of over 800 people all over the world. Anyone could have made that tweet. I would assume it was
someone else other than Julian as he is quite busy at the moment and the lads back at HQ would be on the ball with the documents.
Concerning the "Who is Wikileaks"
versus "They've been around a long time and now BHAM they're famous - why"
. Well, my answer to
that is, it takes time to verify, analyze and reformat tens of thousands of documents.
I trust Julian, why? Because I followed the CCC (Chaos Computer Club) news, events and magazine for a long time, I followed a lot of hacking news and
personally what Julian is doing I think is fantastic. There were a few hackers in Australia back in the 80s that were quite famous, there are even
documentaries about them.
Julian's life makes sense to me, I can understand how he became what he is and how he got on that path. When your young and interested in hacking, a
lot can happen; especially if you move house over 32 times.
What will be leaked I am assuming will be about China
, and how big they are and what they have been doing. I do not think Wikileaks would
released Alien related material, since they try and sway themselves from the 9/11 conspiracy. That in itself shows you that they know most people
think 9/11 was done by Al Qaeda, and will not say otherwise as they need their PR and they need people to take them seriously. Imagine the number of
people who would not take Wikileaks seriously if they stated 9/11 was an inside job; yeah sure we would love it but there are more sheeple in the
world than those that have awakened.
Julian is a good man, hes on the run at the moment because he know that this smear campaign is working, he has been framed and he knows he can't do
anything about it. Sweden is the only place where Julian feels safe due to the laws of journalism there and now he can never get permanent lawful
residency due to this smear campaign. He will probably stay anonymous and be M.I.A. until the evidence is brought forward to prove his innocence.
Wikileaks need donations because they can work and provide an income because they spend 24/7 going through all those documents, risking their lives,
while we all sit at home on ATS thinking we are saving the world with text; while they are in the field risking their lives every single day. Even in
the future they can't get a proper career because they will be assassinated. They need to stay anonymous, but they also need a public face; and that
is what Julian is for them as well as a senior editor.
