Next for WikiLeaks’ War on America: ‘Take Down a Bank or Two’
November 29, 2010
(ChattahBox US News)—-Not content to rest on his anarchist laurels and revel in the damage caused by his release of stolen U.S. diplomatic cables, WikiLeaks’ founder Julian Assange is bragging about his next leak that could topple American banks. Assange says his next attack against the U.S. will consist of tens of thousands of documents that would expose wrongdoing of a major bank. “Usually when you get leaks at this level, it’s about one particular case or one particular violation,” said Assange.
AFP reports that the mysterious Assange mentioned Goldman Sachs, but didn’t reveal what U.S. bank he was targeting.
“Speaking to Forbes magazine, Assange said that he was ready to unleash tens of thousands of documents that could “take down a bank or two.”
“Comparing the documents to the emails that exposed Enron’s dealings amid its collapse, the controversial Australian said an existing “big US bank” was the subject of a pending data dump.”
“Asked about any future leaks, he said: “Yes. We have one related to a bank coming up, that?s a megaleak. It’s not as big a scale as the Iraq material, but it?s either tens or hundreds of thousands of documents depending on how you define it.”‘
The “megaleak’ is expected sometime early next year. Oh boy.
