Irony: Inside Dirt on Wikileaks Leaked

Yet another opportunity for the poor, misunderstood Julian Assange to play the victim.
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.

"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".
Almost sounds like Keith Olbermann. Except for the brilliant part.

"uneconomical with the truth" 

So you mean he's a goddamned liar.

Why would anyone care who he is, why he is or what he thinks.  He's the "lady ga-ga" of the internet and just as unimportant.
