WikiLeaks: Das Ende der Meinungsfreiheit

Bei diesem Beitrag handelt es sich um ein Blog aus der Freitag-Community

John-Perry Barlow :"Der erste ernsthafte Informationskrieg hat begonnen. Das Schlachtfeld ist WikiLeaks. Ihr seid die Truppen."

Secret US Embassy Cables (neue WikiLeaks Adresse)

The U.S. State Department has imposed an order barring employees from reading the leaked WikiLeaks cables. State Department staffers have been told not to read cables because they were classified and subject to security clearances. The State Department’s WikiLeaks censorship has even been extended to university students. An email to students at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs says: "The documents released during the past few months through Wikileaks are still considered classified documents. [The State Department] recommends that you DO NOT post links to these documents nor make comments on social media sites such as Facebook or through Twitter. Engaging in these activities would call into question your ability to deal with confidential information, which is part of most positions with the federal government."

Daniel Elsberg: "I’m disgusted by Amazon’s cowardice and servility in abruptly terminating its hosting of the Wikileaks website, in the face of threats from Senator Joe Lieberman and other Congressional right-wingers. I want no further association with any company that encourages legislative and executive officials to aspire to China’s control of information and deterrence of whistle-blowing."

WikiLeaks insurance file torrent

" Supporters of WikiLeaks around the world are downloading a file the site had called an insurance policy. The files are encrypted with a code so strong it's unbreakable, even by governments.If anything happens to Assange or the website, the plan was for a key to go out to unlock the files. It seemed unlikely Friday morning that WikiLeaks staff, or Assange himself, would send out the key to the encrypted file in reaction to EveryDNS dropping their site, as their content was back online via the Swiss domain only hours later.In theory, if news organizations or other WikiLeaks supporters get the key, there will be no way to stop the information from spreading like wildfire, because so many people already have copies."What most folks are speculating is that the insurance file contains unreleased information that would be especially embarrassing to the U.S. government if it were released," said Declan McCullagh, chief political correspondent for CNET, a CBS company."
