Known to have made enemies with the Pentagon, Wikileaks is set to release another set of classified documents that will apparently top the Iraq war logs, which it released earlier in the year.
“Next release is 7x the size of the Iraq War Logs. intense pressure over it for months,” the website wrote on its Twitter account.
It was then followed with this an hour later, “The coming months will see a new world, where global history is redefined.”
Wikileaks has been in the press more after publishing more than 500,000 secret documents about the two wars the US and Australia are/were engaged in Iraq and Afghanistan. The more infamous one, as well bringing the site into the spotlight, was the release of the Collateral Murder video.
The public face of the site, Julian Assange, is also currently embroiled in an alleged rape scandal, where the charges were initially dropped before a Swedish court approving a motion to bring him into custody.
The Iraq War Logs were sent to a dozen media organisations including the BBC, CNN, The New York Times and The Guardian by the website, whose tagline is “We open Governments.” The leaks have been called as the biggest military leak since the Pentagon Papers.
The organisation has also been in the news for leaking the Australian Government’s secret blacklist maintained by ACMA, though that claim is disputed.
