WikiLeaks has opened the Pandora’s Box for the government and has revealed some interesting and amusing conversations from embassy cables across the nation.
However, this only marks the beginning of a series of releases. There was definitely more to follow and they had talked of it earlier this month. Forbes had an exclusive with Assange and this is what they have to say about it:
In an exclusive interview earlier this month, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange told Forbes that his whistleblower site will release tens of thousands of documents from a major U.S. financial firm in early 2011. Assange wouldn’t say exactly what date, what bank, or what documents, but he compared the coming release to the emails that emerged in the Enron trial, a comprehensive look at a corporation’s bad behavior.
The overwhelming response on the WikiLeaks submission channel was so intense that they had to close submissions in December as they were running out of places to publish the submissions. Assange has decided to release matters that are more serious as compared to other not so important ones. So remember, anything that we see next, is the best Assange has.
