Reuters: WikiLeaks BofA Documents a "Dud"?

by Calculated Risk on 2/09/2011 04:10:00 PM

Last year I mentioned a rumor that WikiLeaks might release some BofA documents.

Here is an update from Reuters: WikiLeaks Founder Suggests BofA Documents Are a Dud

The bombshell that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has said could "take down a bank or two" may in fact be something of a dud.
...
Assange said it consists of e-mails from the hard-drive of a Bank of America executive's computer and that the latest messages are dated sometime in 2006. ... Assange's private characterizations of the Bank of America material as being dated and difficult to interpret contrasts with inflammatory public statements he has made ... touting the significance of bank-related materials WikiLeaks has been planning to publish.
Note: I only mention this because I posted the rumor last year.
