Wikileaks sparked Arab revolution, says MI6

EnergyScholar writes "Former British intelligence chief Sir Richard Dearlove credits Wikileaks with helping spark revolution in Middle East, in an off the record speech someone serreptitiously videotaped. In previous stories about the Middle East revolution there were several conversation threads in which people asked whether there was evidence that Wikileaks had helped spark the Middle East revolutions. This is my first story posted to Slashdot, but it's safe to say it won't be my last on this topic. Interested readers should follow the phrase "disruptive compliance" for information about the origins of Wikileaks. "What sort of Hacktivist applications shall we write?" Indeed!"
