Cryptome.org was publishing classified and secret documents long before WikiLeaks made headlines. Cryptome co-founder John Young told RT such sites are allowed to stay online so that spy services might keep an eye on their visitors.
There is no secrecy on the Internet, John Young warned.
‘In terms of their being able to see everything that we are doing, we know that we cannot keep any secrets about our site and we tell our readers, ‘You should not expect us to protect you, because we are being watched and every other site is being watched, just like WikiLeaks is being watched,’’ he said. ‘There’s no secrecy on the Internet – that’s the lesson we’ve learned and we are now trying to spread that.’
