|WikiLeaks, the online leak group, said Thursday that it would begin releasing a cache of more than 2.4 million e-mails between Syrian politicians, government officials and companies dating from 2006 until March of this year. WikiLeaks said it aimed to "shine a light on the inner workings of the Syrian government and economy" and that the disclosures in the e-mails would embarrass not only President Bashar al-Assad of Syria but also adversaries of Mr. Assad and his ruling Baath Party.|
