WikiLeaks -- radical use of the web

I was interested to read about this inspired use of the web in The Australian weekend magazine of 30-31 May. Through a complex arrangements of servers and by uploading the files from Sweden where the law protects journalists' sources, Wikileaks offers a place where documents of significance can be made public anonymously by people around the world.

The site says:
Have documents the world needs to see? We help you to get the truth safely out.

Among the documents posted has been the United States' classified operations manual for Guantanamo Bay.
