    WikiLeaks, you must know
    Since the summer of 2010 until now, Swedish television has been following WikiLeaks, a network of secret means, and his enigmatic Editor in Chief, Julian Assange.

    Reporters Jesper Huor and Lindquist Bosse have traveled to key countries where WikiLeaks operates, interviewing board members, such as Assange, new spokesman Kristinn Hrafnsson, and people such as Daniel Domscheit-Berg, who is now starting its own version - Openleaks . org!

    Where do you direct this organization so discreet? Stronger than ever, or disarmed by the U.S.? Who is Assange: champion of freedom, spyware or rapist? What are their goals? What are the consequences for the Internet?

    Quote from George Orwell:
    If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.

    Enjoy the video 57' english with spanish subtitles:

    The documentary on Swedish television site here.

    Don't miss the incredible architecture of one of the WikiLeaks headquarters, by Albert France-Lanord Architects

    To finish, I'm very frustated about the final facts of the documentary, I would add a final quote, to sum up, because the reaction of the other members of Wikileaks can produce a single huge post about human being.

    Quote from Rabindranath Tagore:
    He who is too busy doing good finds no time to be good.

    wikileaks' headquarters looks built for a climactic James Bond standoff.

    just for due-diligence, that's not actually the wikileaks headquarters, a few of their servers are stored there, along with many others people's. the architect was indeed inspired by James Bond secret HQs, however.

    from the same article u link to:

    It seems that the New York Post article was misleading. The Pionen – White Mountain facilities, a Bahnhof computer center, hosts two Wikileaks servers at these facilities and provides power, cooling, and Internet access to the servers.

    misleading, i'll say so. that thing's forever gonna be considered the WikiLeaks HQ and actually does more damage to their efforts. more propaganda grist for the mill.

    I edited the post showing what you say nothisbody :)
    With the mention of the HQ, I would to illustrate how WikiLeaks people focus every decisions with a particular point of view, and at this case, with amazing spy look for his installation.

    I Also add another quote and final comments.

    What specifically frustrates you about the Documentary ? Do you mean that you believe it to be inaccurate, or that you are frustrated over the real-world events discussed in the documentary ?
