Julian Assange: Australian editor, publisher, activist and founder of WikiLeaks
Julian Paul Assange is an Australian editor, publisher, and activist who founded WikiLeaks in 2006.

These leaks included the Baghdad airstrike Collateral Murder video, the Afghanistan war logs, the Iraq war logs, and Cablegate. After the 2010 leaks, the United States government launched a criminal investigation into WikiLeaks.
