In an eye-opening account, Daniel Domscheit-Berg, the former spokesman of WikiLeaks, reveals never-disclosed details about the inner workings of the increasingly controversial organization that has struck fear into governments and business organizations worldwide and prompted the Pentagon to convene a 120-man task force. In addition to Germany and the U.S., Inside WikiLeaks will be published simultaneously in 12 other countries.
"Daniel Domscheit-Berg, THIS BOOK IS SOUR GRAPES!"
WikiLeaks, a platform for disclosing information, has managed to produce more scoops in the last three years than the Washington Post has in the last 30: the gruesome video of Iraqi civilians and journalists being murdered by members of the US military; the true circumstances surrounding the bombing of two hijacked petrol-tankers in Kunduz, Afghanistan; the plundering of the Icelandic bank Kaupthing; the planning documents for the Duisburg Love Parade, and many more.
Since its launch in 2006, WikiLeaks has rapidly grown into the most powerful and influential whistleblowing organisation ever. Its status as a repository and publisher of leaked sensitive and confidential governmental, corporate, organisational, or religious documents while preserving the anonymity and untraceability of its contributors, and the statements and behaviour of its leader Julian Assange have made WikiLeaks both daily front-page news and a topic of enormous controversy.
