The idea for this strip really came from the whole concept of “Who watches the watchers?” I’m always intrigued by the ability of many people to believe in complex conspiracy theories, but never question the people delivering those theories to them.
Of course, that’s not to say there is anything nefarious necessarily about Wikileaks, but some healthy skepticism about them, as well as their targets, certainly wouldn’t hurt. Then again, I just described paranoia.
JIMMY: Shouldn't Wikileaks have to release all of their communication, too?
TREY: No, that's stupid. They might put some of their sources in danger.
BILLY: Like with their military leaks?
JIMMY: What if we set up a Wikileaks-leaks to keep them honest?
RICK: Then who would watch us?
