Julian Assange Doesn't Do Irony Well: Threatens His Own Internal Leakers With $20 Million Penalty
from the that-seems-just-a-little-hypocritical dept
It’s no secret that Wikileaks’ Julian Assange is a man of many contradictions, who has what appears to be a vindictive and angry streak against those who disagree with him on certain plans. However, now reports are coming out that he made his own associates sign an incredibly draconian non-disclosure agreement which threatens anyone who leaks documents from within Wikileaks with the potential for a $20 million penalty. I guess, you could argue that since he recognizes how much leaking goes on, that it makes sense to put in place extreme penalties. Of course, the alternative explanation that many seem to prefer is that he’s just annoying, paranoid and, at times, more than a bit hypocritical.
