The World Tomorrow's Episode 5, today tweeted by @wikileaks after the recent invasion of several zones of Iraq and Syria by ISIL ( https://twitter.com/wikileaks/status/477364333639659520 ), contains a very "interesting" phrase said by Julian Assange in 2012, during his talk with Mozzam Begg and Asim Quresh:

AQ:
Neither of us started the organisation. We came on afterwards…

MB:
I was in Guantanamo when it started.

MB:
My very first… when I had the first meeting with the guys who founded the organisation I said ‘You realise this is grammatically incorrect?’ So there’s always been this tension about whether or not we should change the name but there’s just so much…

JA:
Too late now.

MB:
… goodwill attached to it that it’s almost become like an unfortunate consequence of having people with very bad grammar starting the organisation.

JA:
Now I would take the Wiki out of WikiLeaks actually, but it has such capital… Um, so then we’ll go on to capturing to killing. So, Cage Prisoners represents people who are imprisoned but… with all these drones, I mean, there seems to be a policy now of not even bothering to imprison people…

MB:

Right.

" Now I would take the Wiki out of WikiLeaks actually, but it has such capital… "


So, it's not just an impression that "Wiki"-Leaks has been turned from a "wiki-site" based on collective contribute to "somethingelse" using that "Wiki" just as publicity/to attract attention ...?
