So much for Swedish justice!

Greenberg has exhaustively researched the story — and the back story -- providing the reader with the ultimate bird's eye view of the unfolding story of WikiLeaks, Internet privacy and the corporate and governmental battles waged against them; this is one kick ass piece of work!
From cryptography and cipherpunks to the extreme efforts of hacktivists, Greenberg delivers mightily.
