FBI Whistleblower on Pierre Omidyar and His Campaign to Neuter Wikileaks

I cannot vouch for all these claims, but I do know one thing - the philosophy of Wikileaks is to release everything and to let the public sort it out, while the philosophy of The Intercept seems to be to release only that which The Intercept sees fit to print.
Which of the two do you prefer?
By the way, I like Sibel Edmonds. I believe she has just one agenda - to tell the truth. I'm not so sure about these other guys.
