Dissatisfaction with Assange: Former WikiLeaks Activists to Launch New Whistleblowing Site - SPIEGEL ONLINE - News - International

I agree with the following concept, within reason:

"As many people as possible should have access to as many documents as possible," the former Germany spokesman for WikiLeaks, Daniel Domscheit-Berg, told the newspaper.

I also believe that Julian Assange does want more entities doing what he's doing including tweaking it.

I'm getting the sense that WikiLeaks had much less money backing it up than it appeared in terms of what it was able to accomplish. They managed a great deal on a shoestring.

Julian had a vision, and I can understand why he would not throw it wide open. He's not nearly as anarchistic as the U.S. government has wanted to paint him. Daniel Domscheit-Berg is only 32. On the surface, he showed an under-appreciation for the level of control Julian feels he has needed to exercise so the organization wouldn't be ruined from outside or within.

The problem now arises as to which groups will be trustworthy in the eyes of leakers. Government/intelligence groups could, and will, pose as WikiLeaks like groups.

This site/page claims that Daniel Domscheit-Berg says Julian Assange received funding from Israeli bodies "semi-formal" (semi-formal meaning what exactly?) and entered into a written agreement that WikiLeaks would not release any documents that may cause harm or damage to the interests of Israeli diplomacy or security.

Daniel Domscheit-Berg

Who is Daniel Domscheit-Berg? Julian refused to entrust him with full access.

We shall see.
