Wikileaks’ James Bond Styled Secret Headquarters Revealed

If you thought Wikileaks is being operated out of a memory stick from a dinky cold basement by some sleep-deprived programmers ready to abandon their hideout at moment’s notice, think again. Recently pictures of the supposedly secret headquarters surfaced through a number of news sources – pictures that will blow your socks off. A headquarter located in a cave 100 feet below the ground in a former Cold War nuclear bunker futuristically redesigned to look like a set out of a James Bond movie.

The disused bunker turned datacenter was reopened in 2008 and redesigned by Swedish architects Albert France-Lanord. Complete with a 'floating' conference room, suspended glass corridors, lunar landscape flooring, designer furniture, and even, intriguingly, German U-boat engines as back-up generators. “All that is missing is the bleached-blond Assange himself, stroking a white cat”, writes The Daily Mail.

The bunker which could reportedly withstand a nuclear attack, vast cave, also houses dozens of computer servers used as storage by many companies.
