A new WikiLeaks leak reveals “over 600 United Nations investigative reports, over 70 of which are classified ‘Strictly Confidential.'” These include anything from weapons trafficking, to rape of refugees by UN peacekeepers, to fraud, to corruption. See here.

If you have not heard of WikiLeaks, it is a site dedicated to open information and anonymous whistleblowing. Hence, it serves as a safe place for individuals to share sensitive information with little fear of retaliation. It is censored in many countries, and has received numerous lawsuits in many countries, and was even shut down for a short time in the United States.
