Ha ha ha - John Young says that the Internet is just a giant spying machine (at 4:15). That's so part of the standard controlled line of garbage. Internet is most a mass psywar tool.
My guess is that Wikileaks is an OP designed to:
-> serve as a magnet and sole destination for leaked information
-> identify whistle blowers
-> bring the practice of leaking documents to the World Court, or some other international body, where it will be smashed and Wikileaks will hand-over all the contact details of whistleblowers.
So, they contain the whistleblowing by creating a destination and giving it lots of media attention, so that it becomes the primary destination, almost monopolizing the service. Then, when everyone knows about it they smash it "legally", with their own lawyers running the bogus defense, in order to dissuade anyone else from starting such an organization.
