WikiLeaks leaks ‘We Steal Secrets’ doc transcript

LOS ANGELES (AP) — WikiLeaks characterizes the new documentary, “We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks,” as biased and accuses its director, Alex Gibney of “errors and sleight of hand.”

The publishing site released a statement Thursday announcing it had posted an annotated transcript of the film ahead of its Friday release.

No author is cited for the statement that accuses the film of inaccurately portraying the relationship between WikiLeaks leader Julian Assange and Bradley Manning, the U.S. soldier who provided hundreds of thousands of classified American documents to the site. The statement asserts that no one recently associated with WikiLeaks participated in the documentary.

Gibney was not immediately available for comment.
