WickedLeaks

Thursday, December 16th, 2010

I’ve been following this whole wikileaks thing pretty closely, on the web and on TV, and I have yet to see or hear anyone make this point. What is to prevent Julian Assange, a guy with a crazy, anarchist agenda, what is to prevent him from slipping a few cables of his own into the 250,000 supposedly leaked documents?

Who vouches for the authenticity of this massive amount of electronic, easily altered, material? Is the New York Times just taking Assange’s word for it?
