This is a custom API for accessing all the leaks from wikileaks.org (as of 2016). This API is unaffiliated with Wikileaks. It was created in order to easily query for url's to leaks associated with different countries and leak groups.
My API requires that you specify a country.
Each country consists of 20 leakgroups and those leak groups consist of links and names.
This is the key difference between the way wikileaks.org shares information and the way my API shares that same information. By funneling the leaks through a set of filters my aim is to bring caution to information overload.
"Information overload occurs when the amount of input to a system exceeds its processing capacity. Decision makers have fairly limited cognitive processing capacity. Consequently, when information overload occurs, it is likely that a reduction in decision quality will occur." - Alvin Toffler
What does it mean today to have access to any(most) information and therefore not have access to the right parts? How do we scrape the true, right information?
My aim with this API is different than wikileaks.org's: I am not throwing potentially "catastrophic files" along with a bunch of unimportant files at you.
Through a systematization we can query the information we need. I am giving you a tool to to re-represent this information in a systematic way.

This website is a demo for use of the custom build WikileaksAPI.
You can click on the countries on the map and select from a leakgroup from the list that appears. All links you see come from wikileaks and will take you to those spesific files uploaded to the website.
Specify a country, you can't use this API without choosing a country to query from!
how to access: http://wiki.lalavgen.com/api?country=name
After choosing a country,
1-You can choose a leakgroup (country=name&leakgroup=name) ,
2-And/or count for how many links you want to get back (country=name&leakgroup=name&count=number)
**If you only specify a country and no count or leakgroup, you will get all data all leakgroups have on that country.
**If you only specify count and a country, you will get however count is from all leakgroups from that country.
