On this episode of This Day In History, Tony and Armand tell us how Wikieleaks was launched on this day in 2006. The organization has since given an outlet for whistleblowers to post sensitive and classified political documents while keeping their identities hidden. “WikiLeaks is a giant library of the world’s most persecuted documents. We give asylum to these documents, we analyze them, we promote them and we obtain more,” Assange said in an interview in 2015.
Also on this day in 1895, we say happy birthday to American actor, director, and producer, Buster Keaton.
