Wikileaks’ DNS service was cut off due to collateral damage from the DDOS attacks of gigabits/s volume.
The US Government doesn’t get it. The truth is out there and attacking the messenger does nothing to fix their tarnished image. What about the stupidity of distributing the stuff internally to millions of people and assuming it would never leak? What about the stupidity of spying on the world and assuming the world will continue to trust the USA? What about the stupidity of trying to hide civilian casualties when the civilians have families and can do the maths? Could the attacks on Wikileaks be a smoke-screen to hide all that? Could it be easier to wage a war than to change for the better?
The Canadian government is little better. An advisor to the PMO has called for the murder of Assange. That advice is a criminal offense in Canada. Criminals are running our countries.
Maybe our governments should keep the utilities running and mind their own business rather than trying to manipulate the world.
UPDATE It continues. PayPal has blocked payments. They claim they don’t want to support inducement to commit illegal acts. I guess they will have to block every news organization on the planet because they all invite leaks… Seems like this is a double standard.
UPDATE Another crazy, writes for the Washington Times…
