U.S Plan to Discredit Wikileaks Leaked

Kara Reeder

In an interesting twist, Wikileaks has published a U.S. Army Counterintelligence Agency report that recommends destroying the reputation of the whistleblower Web site, reports V3.co.uk.


The 2008 plan calls Wikileaks "a potential force protection, counterintelligence, OPSEC, and INFOSEC threat to the US Army." According to the report, foreign governments could be using the site to gather information about U.S. Army secrets.


The report says Wikileaks operates on trust that insiders, leakers and whistleblowers will remain anonymous. The report concludes that:

The identification, exposure, or termination of employment of or legal actions against current or former insiders, leakers, or whistleblowers could damage or destroy this center of gravity and deter others from using Wikileaks.org to make such information public.
