WikiLeaks founder 'being persecuted' | The Australian It seems to me that it's awfully coincidental that the founder of Wikileaks is being prosecuted for sexual offenses right now. I'm suspicious. The site has been pulled, I noticed. I had never been to it, but was curious about it after all this hubbub. I wouldn't be surprised if he and others in that organization ended up dead, actually. They pissed off a lot of important people worldwide.
