Question: if Wikileaks got punked, how would we know?
I’m not suggesting it has happened, or should happen, but yeah. How would we know? Let’s say I skillfully forged a bunch of really incriminating “classified” material and got it into Wikileaks data (how, I don’t know, but someone could, I’m sure). Someone peruses the info and finds this “revelation.” It makes it to the press. The government legitimately denies it. Who would we believe?
Furthermore, what does that say about our current state of affairs?
