WikiLeaks Leaks 'We Steal Secrets: The Story Of WikiLeaks' Transcript, Slams Film As Filled With 'Errors'

Posted: Updated:

After years of releasing hundreds of thousands of sensitive U.S. government documents, WikiLeaks went the same route against a documentary about itself.

The anti-secrecy group released an annotated transcript of "We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks" on Twitter Thursday -- one day ahead of the film's debut.

In an introductory note posted on justice4assange.com, the documentary is slammed as "filled with factual errors and speculation." At the top of the list of grievances is erroneous evidence that founder Julian Assange "may be guilty of conspiring with Bradley Manning."

The leak comes in lieu of final pretrial hearings for Manning, the Army private who gave more than 700,000 secret U.S. documents to WikiLeaks. It also comes months after late-February speculation that Assange was the subject of a sealed indictment by the U.S. government.

Over recent months, WikiLeaks has continued to make its presence felt. In April, the organization announced a release dubbed "The Kissinger Cables" -- a trove of more than 1.7 million documents tied to the launch of PlusD, the WikiLeaks Public Library Of U.S. Diplomacy.

"The collection covers US involvements in, and diplomatic or intelligence reporting on, every country on Earth," Assange wrote in a press release. "It is the single most significant body of geopolitical material ever published."

"We Steal Secrets: The Story Of WikiLeaks" is set to debut on Friday in New York and Los Angeles, and additional cities will have a May 31 opening, according to CBS News. For the full leaked transcript, click here.
