Here we go again.

In 2010, WikiLeaks published a disturbing heads-up video of US helicopters strafing “insurgents” who turned out to be Reuters journalists. Weeks later came Cablegate, a leak by Bradley (now Chelsea) Manning of 251,000 US diplomatic cables.

By the time Edward Snowden’s name became famous in 2013, the mystique around US intelligence agencies was disappearing faster than the movie assassins who fancied a crack at killing Jason Bourne.

Yesterday, WikiLeaks returned with a further instalment dubbed “Vault 7/Year Zero” that exposes the first cache of 7,818 partly redacted web pages and 943 attachments that make up some of the CIA’s most precious software riddles.
