Obama’s Administration Efforts to Bankrupt Wikileaks – Wikileaks: Our Funding Blocked
US official has been repeatedly attacking Wikileaks and its founders, Julain Assang, reports before the release of the 90,000 secret logs of the Afghan war suggested that US officials were looking to assassinate Julain.
According to UK newspaper Guardian, Wikileaks said that the whislteblowing website’s funding has been blocked, moneybookers a UK registered Internet payment company that collect wikileaks donations, emailed wikilekas telling them they had to close the account because it has been on an official US watchlist and on an Australian government blacklist.
The Guardian posted moneybookers reply to wikileaks supplied by Wikileaks founder Julian Assange:
Hi Daniel, you can inform him that initially his account was suspended due to being accessed from a blacklisted IP address. However, following recent publicity and the subsequently addition of the WikiLeaks entity to blacklists in Australia and watchlists in the USA, we have terminated the business relationship.’”
US officials have repeatedly asked WIkileaks to “do the right thing” return the logs and destroy all copies. Which is something TOO late. as all files are now at the finger tips of thousands of people around the world.
Julain Assange defiant response to the “do the right thing,” is releasing thousands more of the secret logs it has obtained, this time about the War in Iraq which would expose the amount of murder the US army and its allies has committed against Iraqi civilians.
Is this an outrages and hypocritical move by the US administration, as the public in USA and around the world have the right to know the hidden secrets of how power is being abused by totalitarian and dictator governments around the world? Is this 100% against the principles of free speech and free flow of information?
However the site seems to be down for a while. Is this the case at your end?
