Julian Assange

A column on 12 July suggested that Wikileaks founder Julian Assange had hacked into the security services and published information which got people killed.

Mr Assange asks us to clarify that Wikileaks does not itself ‘hack’ but provides a secure facility for anonymous sources to deposit information online.

While the U.S. government has warned that Wikileaks disclosures put lives at risk, no such deaths have to date been reported.

[It’s not clear which story this refers to. This one was published on the right day, but doesn’t make the claims listed. Perhaps it has been silently corrected]

[Update: It seems that this correction refers to this Littlejohn column. All references to Assange and Wikileaks have been silently removed from the article, but they are still mentioned in the comments.]
