WikiLeaks on a Roll by ProQuest


On April 5, WikiLeaks soared from obscurity to worldwide notoriety when it posted the "Collateral Murder" video on its site. The video taken from the cockpit of a US Army helicopter, shows a small group of men being shot from the helicopter in a Baghdad suburb in 2007.

WikiLeaks often harkens back to the Pentagon Papers as an example of how principled leaking can affect needed change.
