In a rare interview, WikiLeaks' Julian Assange tells Forbes that the release of Pentagon and State Department documents are just the beginning. His next target: big business.

"Early next year," reports Andy Greenberg for Forbes' The Firewall, "Assange says, a major American bank will suddenly find itself turned inside out. Tens of thousands of its internal documents will be exposed on Wikileaks.org with no polite requests for executives' response or other forewarnings. The data dump will lay bare the finance firm's secrets on the Web for every customer, every competitor, every regulator to examine and pass judgment on."
