WikiLeaks, the whistle-blower group that has released hundreds of thousands of pages of classified government information over the past few months, announced on its Twitter feed that it plans to share "over 100 new Bahrain revelations" sometime tonight.
WikiLeaks to release over 100 new Bahrain revelations tonight.
While WikiLeaks has come under fire from world leaders for exposing government secrets and possibly endangering the lives of soldiers and citizen informants, the group has also been credited with starting the unrest that led to the eventual downfall of the Tunisian government. Diplomatic cables sent by employees of the U.S. State Department detailed ex-President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali's extraordinary wealth, sparking outrage among Tunisian citizens.
The domino effect of the demonstrations in Tunisia has, of course, spread to Egypt, Libya, Algeria, Jordan, Syria, Iran, Sudan and, last but not least, Bahrain.
So what will be contained in the new leaks? If WikiLeaks can be trusted, we'll know soon enough.
