The Wikileaks saga continued today. After Wikileaks attacker “The Jester” stated that an imposter had claimed that his home was raided by police, reports have come out saying that “The Jester” may in fact be pretending to be the imposter.
“Amazon’s press release does not accord with the facts on public record. It is one thing to be cowardly. Another to lie about it”
Next Wikileaks moved to the Swiss hosted domain “Wikileaks.ch”. This domain is hosted by both French and Swiss servers. But, on Friday France moved to ban Wikileaks from its servers due to the political backlash of the document release:
“Industry Minister Eric Besson says it’s “unacceptable” for French servers to host the site, which “violates the secret of diplomatic relations and puts people protected by diplomatic secret in danger.“”
It also looks like Sweden may be turning on Wikileaks also as it finally finalized an arrest warrant for founder Julian Assange:
“Swedish officials issued a Europe-wide arrest warrant for Assange earlier in the week, only to have to refile it when British officials got in touch to say that it did not meet their standards. Swedish authorities said they have now passed on all supplementary information asked for by British police, meaning that an arrest could be imminent.”
It looks like time may be running out for Assange.
In the meantime, the White House released a memo to government employees warning them not to read the classified memos on the Wikileaks site. Apparently, even though they are on a public site, it does –
“…not alter the documents’ classified status or automatically result in declassification of the documents. To the contrary, classified information, whether or not already posted on public websites or disclosed to the media remains classified, and must be treated as such by federal employees and contractors, until it is declassified by an appropriate U.S. Government authority”
But could a government employee be fired for reading classified documents on the Wikileaks site? Possibly, says White House Office of Management and Budget spokesperson Moira Mack:
“Any breaches of protocols governing access to classified material are subject to applicable sanctions under long-standing and existing law.”
Well, it seems that the entire world can read the documents on the Wikileaks site, but you better stay clear if you are a government employee…
Wikileaks needs to be shutdown. Assange needs to be prosecuted and the sources need to be court martialed as traitors.
Hopefully this madness will end soon.
