Julian Assange’s aim of free speech

A dream come true for WikiLeaks founder, DAILY NATION 2 Dec 10, The founder of the whistleblowing website WikiLeaks whose exclusive dossiers have captured the attention of the world is a man who seems to have achieved his dream.

Julian Assange had dreamt that one day the Internet would be used to step government and corporate excesses.

Assange who has caused major embarrassment for both the Pentagon and US State Department by the diplomatic cables has announced that his next target will be the private sector and an American bank in particular.

Mr Assange, 39, told The Telegraph in London that he had a new set of secret documents that, when released, will trigger another Enron scandal.

“It will give a true insight into how banks behave in a way that will stimulate reforms,” he told Forbes in an interview published on Monday night.

He said the documents include secret BP files and other energy companies, pharmaceuticals and “industrial espionage.”……….
