WIKILEAKS founder Julian Assange is set to be on the sharp end of some unwelcome exposures as a former ally spills the beans on the controversial Australian and his whistle-blowing organisation.Almost sounds like Keith Olbermann. Except for the brilliant part.
"Inside WikiLeaks" is billed as a warts-and-all account of Daniel Domscheit-Berg's time as chief programmer and media spokesman for what his tell-all book calls "the world's most dangerous website."
Set for release in 16 countries tomorrow, it says that "chaotic" WikiLeaks cannot protect its sources and accuses the "power-obsessed" Mr Assange of being uneconomical with the truth, according to leaked excerpts.
Mr Domscheit-Berg, along with others, left WikiLeaks in September complaining that Assange was being autocratic and that the organisation, ironically for a group on a crusade for openness, was becoming excessively secretive.
WikiLeaks is "far too easy to attack," the 32-year-old told German magazine Stern this week, quoting him as calling Mr Assange "brilliant" but "paranoid" and a "megalomaniac".
