Having made its indelible mark on U.S. foreign relations of late, WikiLeaks is taking on another considerable force for its next act, targeting an as-yet-unnamed major U.S. bank with a big reveal planned for early next year. It doesn’t look good for said bank, as WikiLeaks’ honcho Julian Assange invoked the name Enron in an interview about the upcoming sting. —KA
Julian Assange declined in an interview with Forbes to identify the bank, but he said that he expected that the disclosures, which follow his group’s release of U.S. military and diplomatic documents, would lead to investigations.
“We have one related to a bank coming up, that’s a megaleak. It’s not as big a scale as the Iraq material, but it’s either tens or hundreds of thousands of documents depending on how you define it,” Assange said in the interview posted on the Forbes website.
