Julian has got himself into a right pickle.
What I find even more interesting than the leaks themselves is the official response. It is far too orchestrated; too much like an Orwellian witch-hunt. It is obviously designed to bring pressure to bear on those who support Wikileaks, that it's better to distance oneself from the organisation.
I see the smear campaign has raised the "sexual assault" allegations that got main street press after the Iraq footage was released. That died down, but the press needed to trot it out again after the latest leaks. Now that that avenue appears dead, they have had to try a new tack - citing Julian an enemy combatant, and at least one politician has labelled him a terrorist. Obviously anyone hosting his site will be considered to be involved in espionage, which is essentially why Amazon acceded to US demands.
What an extraordinary allegation.
The response is way overblown. The only thing I can suggest is that governments fear what Julian has in his possession and has yet to release.
A coordinated Denial of Service attack has been launched against the website:
Wikileaks is currently under heavy attack.
In order to make it impossible to ever fully remove Wikileaks from the Internet, you will find below a list of mirrors of Wikileaks website and CableGate pages.
It is ironic to watch the Iraq footage and then listen to the US saying Julian has put our lives in danger.
Is it just me, or does the response smack of fear and a need to control our response to Wikileaks with obvious Groupthink? If you support Wikileaks, you're supporting a terrorist....If you think the site is necessary, then your also guilty of putting lives in danger.
