WikiLeaks: You Can't Trust The Guy On The Left

Some people really know how to get our attention - emphasis ours:
A tell-all book by a former WikiLeaks insider casts founder Julian Assange as an "emperor" who has become just the kind of public figure he is trying to expose.

Daniel Domscheit-Berg, the former WikiLeaks spokesman who left the secret-spilling website after a bitter dispute with Assange, writes about his euphoria at the website's spectacular rise as well as his disillusionment with a leader he describes as delusional and power-crazed.

He said one of his motives for writing the book was that he wanted to clarify the events that led to the falling-out.

"We need to set the record straight before Assange turns into a cult, a pop phenomenon," Domscheit-Berg told reporters in Berlin on Thursday at the launch of his book.
Ha! A "cult"? Isn't it funny how Domscheit-Berg would consider that a risk - of all things - with so many smart and intelligent people around?

Or maybe, after his experience with Assange, he's discovered they ain't so smart and intelligent after all,..?
