On Wednesday Daniel Domscheit-Berg aka former Wikileaks spokesperson Daniel Schmitt appeared on German tv at Stern tv.
As soon as January 27th next year his book with the title "Inside Wikileaks - My time with the most dangerous website of the world" will be
Many see him as a traitor to Wikileaks. I myself always tried to understand his position and motives. Not everybody is strong enough to stand against
all those accusations and even calls for assasination.
But now it looks a little odd, how quickly he comes up with a book with insider views.
The Bild titles: "Now the former Wikileaks speaker is going to blow the whistle".
Here is a bad Google translation:
But Daniel is not as anti-Wikileaks as the newspaper wants to think us on first sight. He says, Assange is a brilliant person with his own weaknesses,
he thinks, it was important to release the cables to get a complete picture of our own history and that it is important to have websites, which make
such things public.
On the other hand, Daniel told in former interviews, that he quit his job a year ago and had spent all his money while working for Wikileaks. This
could be a motivation to write a book that quickly.
However I look at it, I also remember him criticizing, that even he as a spokesperson did not know, who was working on what at Wikileaks. So I wonder,
what he has to tell about the "inside".
