Open Secrets: WikiLeaks, War and American Diplomacy: Complete and Expanded Coverage from The New York Times

This morning, I was sucked into a lengthy article by Bill Keller, the executive editor of The New York Times. He wrote about his experience dealing with Assange and Wikileaks. The saying that ‘truth is stranger than fiction’ has once again been proven true. As Keller says,

I came to think of Julian Assange as a character from a Stieg Larsson thriller — a man who could figure either as hero or villain in one of the megaselling Swedish novels that mix hacker counterculture, high-level conspiracy and sex as both recreation and violation.

The tale that Keller weaves—of power struggles, secret meetings, and unlikely alliances—could pass as Larsson’s missing fourth novel if it wasn’t missing the characteristic strong female lead and ongoing theme of mental and physical abuse against women. The article is just an excerpt from the introduction of, “Open Secrets: WikiLeaks, War and American Diplomacy: Complete and Expanded Coverage from The New York Times.” I loved Larsson’s books so much that I’m going to have to read this real life thriller available at nytimes.com/opensecrets.
