Years ago, WikiLeaks smashed the mainstream media paradigm by leaking crucial videos and documents which were evidence of war crimes on the part of the US government and their allies. In recent years WikiLeaks has been more or less silent and pushed into obscurity by various governments that have sought to take them down.
However, it seems that WikiLeaks may now be back with a vengeance, with news this week that the whistleblower organization has come into possession of hacked files that were retrieved from CIA chief John Brennan’s email account.
WikiLeaks said that the information will be released “soon.”
ANNOUNCE: We have obtained the contents of CIA Chief John Brennan's email account and will be releasing it shortly.— WikiLeaks (@wikileaks) 12:07 AM - 22 Oct 2015
The hack was reportedly carried out by an American teenager who worked with others to tap into Brennan’s email account. The hackers have yet to be identified, and have been taunting the government for the past week about the emails.

When Brennan asked the hackers what they wanted, they replied by saying “2 trillion dollars hahhaa, just joking.”
According to Wired, Brennan replied, “How much do you really want?”
They told Brennan “We just want Palestine to be free and for you to stop killing innocent people.”
