Wikileaks May Have Withheld Key Russian Documents From ‘Syria Files’ Leaks
Wikileaks withheld a batch of emails showing a $2.2 billion transaction between the Syrian regime and a Russian government-owned bank, according to a Daily Dot report. If true, the report will likely have a lasting negative impact on Wikileaks’ credibility. The report alleges that the transparency organization betrayed its own core values of “pristine leaking,” and did so in a way that protects Russia’s public image.
So…. Julian Assange’s repeated claims of providing “pristine” leaks is kinda turning out to be BS. Can the organization just get rid of him? I feel like a whistleblower site like Wikileaks is important but oh how the mighty have fallen. They've published 80 variants of malware in one dump, personal details of citizens in others, and then there's Assange deliberately timing the release of emails to maximally disrupt the proceedings of the DNC – because he has a personal beef with Clinton.
