Commentary: In a WikiLeaks world, nothing is secret

The surprise isn't that WikiLeaks is apparently going after Bank of America. The surprise is that it hasn't happened before now. More than a year ago, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said he had a trove of information taken from a BofA executive's hard drive. Since then, WikiLeaks has published a classified video of U.S. forces killing Iraqi civilians; war logs from Iraq and Afghanistan; and, just this week, more than 250,000 messages from U.S. diplomats stationed all over the world.
