Julian Assange is the supposed director of the organization. He is described to be an Australian internet activist and journalist. The organization is made up of journalists, mathematicians and technologists from all over the world.
In April 2010 Wiki leaks, leaked a video from a 2007 incident in which Iraqi civilians and journalist were killed by the US forces. Recently the group has leaked war documents: a package of almost 400,000 documents called Iraq War Logs.
Wiki leaks are indeed quite contradictory and opposed by the US government. The US government has deemed the organization as, “reckless and dangerous” because it threatens the security of the US citizens.
Assange was bailed out of prison by Michael Moore and other notable people. Moore affirms that Assange was only put in prison because he had enough courage to expose American war crimes. Assange tells the public to protect the organization.
