Julian Assange was interviewed briefly by a correspondent from CNBC today and revealed that Wikileaks was going to release documents on one major bank by January 2011. Though Assange has not claimed which bank he is referring to, Wikileaks supposedly obtained a hard drive from a Bank of America executive in October 2009 and many believe this is where the documents are from. Assange also went on to say that banks around the world were “attacking” Wikileaks, but did not elaborate.
In my opinion, I do not see any threat coming from Assange’s comments. As I have said prior, the financials have already been beaten down to where their stock price was less than there book value. Unless Assange has evidence that some executive was secretly conducting sacrifices to please the profit Gods, don’t get your hopes up that banks will fall.
