Wikileaks is a leak website, better known than the older Cryptome. In October 2017 a US Senate was debated that contains a section that if passed would designate WikiLeaks and Julian Assange as a “non-state hostile intelligence service.”ref>http://www.topsecretwriters.com/2017/10/us-senate-bill-labels-wikileaks-hostile-intelligence-service/</ref>
Julian Assange, stated in 2006 that Wikileaks had already "received over one million documents from 13 countries". In 2010, the New Yorker and then Wired claimed that these documents were not knowingly leaked, but had been captured by Assange's running a modified Tor exit node. Asked to clarify whether this claim was true by The Register, Assange denied it, stating that "The imputation is incorrect. The facts concern a 2006 investigation into Chinese espionage one of our contacts were involved in. Somewhere between none and handful of those documents were ever released on WikiLeaks. Non-government targets of the Chinese espionage, such as Tibetan associations were informed (by us)."
September 11th, 2001
In November 2009, Wikileaks published around 500,000 pager messages - 29 hours worth, from 5 hours before the first 9-11 attacks to 24 hours after. Little significant evidence was found among them to contradict the US government's official narrative. In July 2010, Assange commented about 9-11 that "I'm constantly annoyed that people are distracted by false conspiracies such as 9/11, when all around we provide evidence of real conspiracies, for war or mass financial fraud." Unwelcome Guests has cited this quotation as evidence that Wikileaks is a modified limited hangout.
Articles and other information about the Wikileaks Afghan War Diaries
There is an extended series of articles by Arthur Silber on his "Once Upon a Time" blog  in ardent support of Wikileaks which repay careful study. They also contain copius links to further information.

Puffed up outrage clearly in service to the official narrative
On the face of it the organisations listed here are bona-fide Establishment critics/dissidents. The problem is that they are large NGO's which, like Wikileaks itself, wiil ALWAYS be targets of the SIS's. The longer they are established, the more likely and thorough the penetration. In the case of Reporters Without Borders there is ample evidence of their complicity in furthering covert Western agendas in third world countries - especially Cuba and Venezuela

- Wikileaks: Giving Leaks a Bad Name A blog post by Steven Aftergood of FAS - The Federations of American Scientists. In Mr Aftergood's world, there are Good leaks and there are Bad leaks. He is clearly staking his claim to be the official arbiter of which is which. The comments on this piece tell a story too.
Deep Background Information on Wikileaks
- This is a Google search of the Cryptome site. Cryptome has the most detailed and insightful inside track on Wikileaks of pretty well any other source. John Young, its operator, was the original registrant of the Wikileaks domain name. He resigned from further involvement with Wikileaks over its fund-raising ambitions and the full story of those early days is available from the links produced by this search.
Some high-profile WikiLeaks leaks
- Full article: Wikileaks/Vault 7
- Full article: Wikileaks/Vault 7
"Mysteriously teased in February," on 7 March 2017, Wikileaks posted a lot of information on the capabilities of the United States Central Intelligence Agency to perform electronic surveillance and cyber warfare. The files, dated from 2013–2016, include details on the agency's software capabilities, such as the ability to compromise smart TVs, web browsers (including Firefox, Google Chrome, and Microsoft Edge), and the operating systems of most smartphones (including Apple's iOS and Google's Android), as well as other operating systems such as Microsoft Windows, macOS, and Linux.
CIA project to bolster European support for the Afghan War
On 26 March 2010, Wikileaks posted a classified CIA analysis of possible PR-strategies to shore up public support in Germany and France for continued war in Afghanistan. After the Dutch government fell on the issue of dutch troops in Afghanistan in April 2010, the CIA became worried that similar events could happen in the countries that post the third and fourth largest troop contingents to the ISAF-mission. The proposed PR strategies focus on pressure points that have been identified within these countries. For France it is the sympathy of the public for Afghan refugees and women. For Germany it is the fear of the consequences of defeat (drugs, more refugees, "terrorism") as well as for Germany’s standing in NATO. The memo is a recipe for the targeted manipulation of public opinion in two NATO ally countries, written by the CIA. It is classified as Confidential / No Foreign Nationals.
The document provides detailed insights into the covert world of intelligence sponsored propaganda 
The 'Collateral Murder' video
On 5th April 2010 10:44 EST WikiLeaks released a classified US military video depicting three airstrikes from a US Apache helicopter on July 12, 2007 in New Baghdad, Iraq. At least eighteen people were killed in the airstrikes, including two journalists working for Reuters, Saeed Chmagh and Namir Noor-Eldeen. 
The video was recorded by the gunsight camera on an Apache helicopter, identified as Crazyhorse 18, and is accompanied by the radio communications of the helicopter gunmen as they communicate with their commanders and troops on the ground.
This video was amongst 1/4 million classified US Diplomatic cables leaked by 22 year old Bradley Manning.
The 'Afghan War Diary' reports
25th July 2010 5:00 PM EST WikiLeaks has released a document set called the Afghan War Diary, an extraordinary compendium of over 91,000 reports covering the war in Afghanistan from 2004 to 2010. 
The reports, while written by soldiers and intelligence officers, and mainly describing lethal military actions involving the United States military, also include intelligence information, reports of meetings with political figures, and related details.
The reports cover most units from the US Army with the exception of most US Special Forces' activities. The reports do not generally cover top secret operations or European and other ISAF Forces operations.
- Detailed data-searching and reading guides together with a map pinpointing each reported incident is available on a separate page 
- Diary Dig is a separate, non-Wikileaks, site with comprehensive facilities to search and browse the entire database by any of the fields (categories) in the original data files :
DiaryDig.org is an independently produced website which provides an easy way to search through the Afghan War Diaries, which were made public by Wikileaks on 25th July 2010. The documents are a set of over 76,000 reports (with more coming in the future) which cover the war in Afghanistan from 2004 to 2009. 
You can browse through all of the documents that have been released, organized by type, category, date, number of casualties, and many other properties. From any document page, clicking on the green underlined text will open a popup that links to other documents that contain those phrases, making it possible to see important search terms and connections that you might not otherwise notice.
Our hope is that this tool will be helpful to reporters and researchers who are interested in learning more about the US's war in Afghanistan and making sense of this important database. If you wish to support this work, we encourage you to make a donation to wikileaks or the Bradley Manning legal defense fund. 
- Afghanistan and Pakistan Violent Event Analysis using ACLED and Wikileaks Data . This site contains pdf's of two thorough statistical analyses of the data contained in the 'Afghan War Diaries' leaked data.
Technical criticism from Cryptome
From Cryptome remarks that:
The Wikileaks Afghan War Diary files deserve very close study. The contaminating news reports, condemnations and 'blogwash' need to be surpassed. The WikiLeaks site is heavily loaded and slow. To ease the load and for a quicker download, Cryptome offers mirrors of the now digitally-hashed compressed file packages which were downloaded 27 July 2010, at about 4:40PM. 
- Full article: Seth Rich
- Full article: Seth Rich
Wikileaks has offered $20,000 for anyone providing information which leads to a conviction in the case of murder victim Seth Rich. When Julian Assange was interviewed on the Dutch television program Nieuwsuur his Dutch host commented about the murder of Seth Rich, "That was just a robbery, I believe. Wasn’t it?" Julian Assange replied: "No. There’s no finding. So... I’m suggesting that our sources take risks." He continued to hint that Seth Rich might have been a source for Wikileaks.
