WikiLeaks is an international new media non-profit organization that publishes submissions of otherwise unavailable documents from anonymous news sources and leaks. Its website, launched in 2006, is run by The Sunshine Press
Wikileaks is a website created by Julian Assange, containing tons of documents that tell the locations of military bases and places that only the government knows about for the country's protection. It has an encryption key of 256 numbers, so even the government cannot get into it without it.
