While it appears that Mr Assange is taking the bulk of the money, the Wall Street Journal is quick to point out that Wau Holland is not WikiLeaks' sole monetary provider. Under the Greenpeace salary structure, department heads are paid about $7,200 in monthly salary, a Wau Holland spokesman said.
According to the Wall Street Journal, and reported by the Daily Mail, the main financial arm of the organization is the German-based Wau Holland Foundation. According to the report, Wau Holland brought in about $1.3 million, with $130,000 designated for salaries. Assange paid himself $86,000 of that last year and dispersed the rest of the money among his staff. The salaries, the Daily Mail say, are an attempt by Assange and Wikileaks to legitimize the whistleblower organization

$86,000 isnt NWO pay off money. 86000 is a basic middle class salary.
