    Default WIKI LEAKS DOT ORG - Annonymous Whistle Blowing

    Has anyone ever heard of this website before?


    From Wiki Leaks Website
    Wikileaks is developing an uncensorable Wikipedia for untraceable mass document leaking and analysis. Our primary interest is in exposing oppressive regimes in Asia, the former Soviet bloc, Sub-Saharan Africa and the Middle East, but we also expect to be of assistance to people of all regions who wish to reveal unethical behavior in their governments and corporations. We aim for maximum political impact. Our interface is identical to Wikipedia and usable by all types of people. We have received over 1.2 million documents so far from dissident communities and anonymous sources.

    We believe that transparency in government activities leads to reduced corruption, better government and stronger democracies. All governments can benefit from increased scrutiny by the world community, as well as their own people. We believe this scrutiny requires information. Historically that information has been costly - in terms of human life and human rights. But with technological advances - the internet, and cryptography - the risks of conveying important information can be lowered.

    Wikileaks opens leaked documents up to stronger scrutiny than any media organization or intelligence agency can provide. Wikileaks provides a forum for the entire global community to relentlessly examine any document for its credibility, plausibility, veracity and validity. Communities can interpret leaked documents and explain their relevance to the public. If a document comes from the Chinese government, the entire Chinese dissident community and diaspora can freely scrutinize and discuss it; if a document arrives from Iran, the entire Farsi community can analyze it and put it in context. Sample analyses are available here.

    In its landmark ruling on the Pentagon Papers, the US Supreme Court ruled that "only a free and unrestrained press can effectively expose deception in government." We agree.

    We believe that it is not only the people of one country that keep their government honest, but also the people of other countries who are watching that government. That is why the time has come for an anonymous global avenue for disseminating documents the public should see.

    Volunteer to help. Almost everyone can be of some assistance.
    According to the group, Wikileaks will be "an uncensorable version of Wikipedia for untraceable mass document leaking and analysis."[11] Wikileaks developers have stated that there will be checks in place to keep the "completely anonymous" system from being flooded with false documents, porn, spam, and related things. All users will be able to comment on all documents, analyze them, and identify false material.[5] Their stated goal is to ensure that whistle-blowers and journalists are not thrown into jail for emailing sensitive or classified documents, such as what happened to Chinese journalist Shi Tao, who was sentenced to 10 years in jail in 2005 after publicising an email from Chinese officials about the anniversary of the Tiananmen Square massacre.[12] According to James Chen, an organizer of the site, traffic since its disclosure increased from 8 Google searches to over 1,000,000 in the first two weeks.[13]

    My friend just showed this to me online. Apparently the last document to be 'wikileaked' was one that showed how a Swiss bank in the Caymans was being used to Launder money for organized crime etc... Days later the website was hit with a DoS attack and hit with a restraining order by congress or something...

    I really like the idea of this website. I hope it proliferates.

    I only wonder how many things on this website will be real and how many will be sensationalized garbage or outright fake.


    Heres some links that are working right now:
