Assange's father's identity was unknown until the Guardian got Australian court files released for this book.
At an early meeting with international reporters in a restaurant he told them: " 'Well, they're informants,' he said.
They deserve it. Assange promised an exclusive deal, then gave away the paper'ssecrets to rivals.
Davies: "I felt betrayed". He also threatened to sue the Guardian, for helping the New York Times.
David Leigh is the Guardian's investigations editor. His most recent journalistic award was for the exposure of toxic waste dumping by the oil traders, Trafigura. He lives in London with his wife, the barrister Jeannie Mackie.
Luke Harding is the Guardian's award-winning Moscow correspondent. But within weeks, Domscheit-Berg and one of the programmers had left WikiLeaks for good and taken the submission system with them.
They seized the system because they had doubts Assange would handle the documents securely, due to lack of care he had allegedly shown for submissions in the past.
We will only return the material to Julian if and when he can prove that he can store the material securely and handle it carefully and responsibly. WikiLeaks had been running on a single server with sensitive backend components like the submission and e-mail archives connected to the public-facing Wiki page.
The Architect separated the platforms and set up a number of servers in various countries. In a statement Wednesday, WikiLeaks essentially confirmed Domscheit-Berg's version of why the site's submission system is missing. The organization said the system remains down months after Domscheit-Berg left because his "acts of sabotage" forced the organization to "overhaul the entire submission system" and the staff lacks time to do so. The statement does not explain why Assange had previously claimed the submission system was down by design to stop an already huge backup of documents from growing even larger.
Domscheit-Berg writes that he and the Architect won't release the unpublished documents and will return them to WikiLeaks once Assange builds a secure system. Noting that the current site has no SSL support , Domscheit-Berg warns that anyone who visits the site to read submission instructions could be monitored.
Domscheit-Berg told Threat Level in an interview on Sunday that the hijacked leaks only include those submitted since the time the system came back online in July following an outage, and the time it went down permanently.
Anything submitted before then, or via other methods, would still be in Assange's possession. Aside from the infrastructure issues, Domscheit-Berg's book alleges that Assange has told other tall tales to the press and supporters. For example, Assange told a New Yorker writer last year that his group had spent three months decrypting a U. Army video that the site published in April under the title "Collateral Murder. In fact, Domscheit-Berg says, WikiLeaks had the password to the video.
That account is supported by statements alleged leaker Bradley Manning made in chats with ex-hacker Adrian Lamo when he claimed to have leaked the video to WikiLeaks. Manning told Lamo that the Iraq video "was never really encrypted" when he found it on an Army server, but that he encrypted the file to transmit it to WikiLeaks and then separately sent the password to WikiLeaks to unlock the video file.
Domscheit-Berg began working with Assange after meeting him at a hacker conference in Germany in December Although WikiLeaks claimed to have hundreds of volunteers and an untold number of staffers, the organization consisted essentially of Assange and Domscheit-Berg, who pored through submissions, did little more than simple Google searches to verify documents and posed as non-existent staffers in e-mail and other correspondence to make WikiLeaks seem heftier than it was. The two were later joined by "the Technician" in and "the Architect" in , both of whom assumed responsibility for the technological infrastructure, while Assange and Domscheit-Berg handled content and media relations.
That is, until internal fighting began in Initially, the fights were over Assange's lack of transparency in handling donated funds, but eventually encompassed everything from the security of sources and submissions, to Assange's lack of trust in Domscheit-Berg, and Assange's relations with women.
Below are some of the highlights from the book. Documents ————————————————————————- Domscheit-Berg adds to recent revelations from the Guardian that Assange cared little about protecting the identity of sources named in U. Army documents that were published with media partners last July. The Guardian reported recently that editors insisted Assange redact names of anti-Taliban informants before publishing the documents, but Assange replied, "Well, they're informants.
So, if they get killed, they've got it coming to them. To that, Domscheit-Berg adds that four days before the documents were to be published, Assange had not told the WikiLeaks staffers preparing the documents for publication to redact names.
