WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. At first, the whistleblower platform published only selected diplomatic dispatches from its cache of 250,000 State Department files. They were carefully chosen and redacted to protect informants. Now, though, they are all available to the public, without redactions -- a disaster for WikiLeaks.
