WikiLeaks Volunteer Was a Paid Informant for the FBI

Wikileaks' secrets leaked to the FBI by a mole in the organization? You have to admit, that's pretty damn funny when you think about it.

For the next three months, Thordarson served two masters, working for the secret-spilling website and simultaneously spilling its secrets to the U.S. government in exchange, he says, for a total of about $5,000. The FBI flew him internationally four times for debriefings, including one trip to Washington D.C., and on the last meeting obtained from Thordarson eight hard drives packed with chat logs, video and other data from WikiLeaks.
