In 2008, the United States Army got a little bit testy about some of its secret documents ending on Wikileaks and commissioned a secret investigation on the pesky website. Naturally, said report ended on Wikileaks three days ago and the story has since been making the run around the interwebs.

The classified (SECRET/NOFORN) 32 page U.S. counterintelligence investigation reports the most unforeseeable finding ever in the history of reports: Wikileaks uses "trust as a center of gravity by protecting the anonymity and identity of the insiders, leakers or whisteblowers''. Hence, the most thought-out recommendation ever in the history of recommendations: 

"The identification, exposure, termination of employment, criminal prosecution, legal action against current or former insiders, leakers, or whistlblowers could potentially damage or destroy this center of gravity and deter others considering similar actions from using the Web site''.
I'll give the US Army some credit here and posit it never even entertained actually enacting this plan; what with comments all over the web coming to the same outstandingly outstanding conclusion. Ironically, enough, the one plan that could actually work is the one that the very addressees of Wikileaks' efforts would carry on: a fund drought. Despite the fundraising drive, Wikileaks has only received two thirds of the annual $600,000.00 needed to run the site. After 4 months! If it keeps going on like this, if we keep taking Wikileaks for granted, then there will not even need to be a plan to end the adventure, we'll have managed just fine on our own.
