To expose the wrongdoings of an organization, the help of a whistleblower is essential. But the threat to one’s own security and life prevents a whistleblower from revealing what his institution has been doing wrong. That is where WikiLeaks comes into play.
WikiLeaks is an amorphous, international organization, based in Sweden that publishes anonymous submissions and leaks of sensitive documents from governments and other organizations, while preserving the anonymity of their sources.
If anybody has important information about the immoral actions of a company, they can safely submit their information with proof to WikiLeaks; WikiLeaks will check the evidence’s validity and then make the information public.
The most prominent example of this is WikiLeak’s action to make public thousands of classified documents related to the war in Afghanistan. Visitors to the WikiLeaks website can read everything that the project has exposed so far.
