Wikirebels – the documentary

with 2 comments

Those who have followed the Wikileaks saga know that Julian Assange spent time in Iceland as the Iraq war logs were being prepared for publication. Now that Assange is fighting Swedish rape accusations an Icelandic journalist, Kristinn Hrafnsson, is more or less in charge of Wikileaks.

The Swedish TV has made a documentary on Wikleaks, their story, how they work and the controversies, also controversies related to Assange’s person. You can watch the documentary here. It’s available until December 13.

The next big thing from Wikileaks is allegedly documents relating to one of the big banks, thought to be Goldman Sachs since Assange mentioned Goldman when he announced the coming leak. Judging from previous leaks, that could be revealing. Icelanders got their first insight into the Icelandic banks when an overview of Kaupthing’s big exposures was leaked. The bank tried to gag the Icelandic media but eventually couldn’t prevent the leak.

  1. I would like to see if Assange shows the same enthusiasm to expose secrets of countries other than those in the West, or if his ire is solely directed against USA and its allies. Should that be the case it would give credence to the likes of Victor Hansen –

    Thus far I am with Glenn Greenwald who has been tirelessly defending Assange –

  2. Thanks for the link to the Swedish documentary.
    I thought it was pretty fair, and if the USA seems to be the bad guy in this, we shouldn’t forget that no other country is actually pretending to have the right to control the whole world like they are.
    Even the Brits have got over their Empire pretensions.
