Wikileaks: Where Truth Becomes Treason
We, like so many other people, from all nations, have been getting some behind the scene glimpses from once top secret documents. These document are now being made available from WikiLeaks.org. The website is being attacked at all ends.” Wikileaks began on Sunday November 28th publishing 251,287 leaked United States embassy cables, the largest set of confidential documents ever to be released into the public domain. The documents will give people around the world an unprecedented insight into US Government foreign activities.
The cables, which date from 1966 up until the end of February this year, contain confidential communications between 274 embassies in countries throughout the world and the State Department in Washington DC. 15,652 of the cables are classified Secret.” from Wikileaks.org
Although not all the documents have been released as of yet, the past few days have created quite the storm of descension from many governments, colleges and companies. If you Google WikiLeaks,org, you will find their website in the search but when you click on it, their site is not there. Losing their hosting server, dns number from allowing their site to be viewed. It is available by going here: http://188.8.131.52/.
PayPal and Amazon have both pulled their accounts. PayPal was WL’s leading source of revenue. They no longer accept PayPal donations anymore. And here is why. Even the State Dept revealed to Columbia University Students: Do Not Dicuss WL on FaceBook or Twitter. You can read more at the Huffington Post why students should be very weary to engage in such activities.
While we have no idea how long WL will be made viewable, if you go there and peruse their site, you will find documents on China’s distaste for Google Earth high resoution mapping service, Google’s distaste for the harassment that China has given them, the UK stating that Obama “Is just not that into us”. These are just from the first two pages that we have viewed.
We would love to know your thoughts, both for and against. Hell, MOB could well be gone tomorrow for giving out these links. But as Ron Paul: stated “In a society where truth becomes treason, we’re in big trouble.”
