What is WikiLeaks and how does it work? WikiLeaks aims to expose secrets and make available important, and often classified, information to the public. The organization's commitment to encouraging and protecting whistleblowers and journalists is seen by many to be a heroic fight for free speech and government transparency. But at what point does the First Amendment matter more than security and diplomacy? Is the organization's agenda really as pure as it purports? Through reading a variety of authoritative viewpoints on the topic, readers will be encouraged to make sense of this ethical dilemma.
Taylor, Carrie Ann, editor.
