WikiLeaks starts publishing the Guantanamo Bay files leak.
WikiLeaks is a non-profit organization that publishes secret and classified information from anonymous sources. It was founded in 2006 by Australian journalist Julian Assange and a group of other activists, with the goal of promoting transparency and accountability in government and other organizations.
Over the years, WikiLeaks has published a large number of leaked documents, including classified government files, corporate emails, and other sensitive information. Some of its most high-profile releases have included the Iraq War Logs, the Afghanistan War Logs, and the diplomatic cables leak.
WikiLeaks has been praised by some for its commitment to transparency and exposing government and corporate wrongdoing. However, it has also faced criticism and legal challenges from governments and other organizations who argue that its activities are illegal and pose a threat to national security.
