In a Swiss bank's nightmare come true, a former Swiss private banker gives WikiLeaks data on 2,000 offshore bank account holders. WikiLeaks' Assange says it will take at least two weeks to vet the new information before a possible release.

    At what point do we acknowledge that Wikileaks is a criminal operation and a fence for stolen information? When the plans for a bank and the combination to safes are "published?" When the health records of all Americans using Obamacare are leaked?

    From the article:

     

    "Elmer, who worked in the Cayman Islands for eight years, said: "I know how the system works...It's damaging...(I want) to educate our society.""

     

    The data was handed over for honorable reasons.

     

    "On Sunday, Elmer told Reuters he hoped Monday's news conference would call attention to offshore financial abuses and that WikiLeaks was his last hope to get his message out."
