Openleaks Website Plans Launch Dec 13: WikiLeaks Rival
Openleaks.org is Planning on Launching on Monday December 13
The founders of Openleakes are former WikiLeaks members and say they are unhappy with the way the site is being run under Julian Assange.
One of those founders is Daniel Domscheit-Berg, who claims that WikiLeaks has become too focused on one person, Julian Assange, and that is dangerous for any organization.
Openleaks essentially has the same goal as WikiLeaks and plans to distribute information to organizations and news sources without being identified.
Domscheit-Berg said WikiLeaks put "everything we had" into the high-profile disclosures of hundreds of thousands secret U.S. documents over the past five months.
"I think the wisest thing to do would have been to do this slowly, step by step, to grow the project. That did not happen," he says in [a] documentary.
Assange is currently being held in a British jail and has been in custody since Tuesday. He is currently battling extradition to Sweden where he will face allegations of sexual assault.
