    Assange evangelises Whistleblowing while creating controversy with publising Afghan war logs which provoked Pentagon to go after him with legal assault. But creating a criminal case against WikiLeaks would be controversial and complicated, and would expose the Obama administration to criticism for pursuing not just government leakers, but organizations that disseminate their information.Julian Assange discusses what Whistleblowers can do to protect
    their disclosures and themselves. WikiLeaks provides a secure, military grade protection programme for whistleblowers which has enabled the safe
    transmission of important evidence to the public. Julian Assange did make a surprise appearance at the TED Global conference at Oxford University Chris Anderson, TED’s founder, interviews him onstage and talks through Wikileak’s mission, structure and history and was asking if it’s fair to say that Wikileaks has released more secret documents that the collective enterprise of journalism.
