Re: wikileaks still under attack, pressure revved up

Hey Cal - hope all is well...

Along those lines, I think it is also interesting to take into account how much similar information is being 
distributed by military personnel themselves on social sites like Facebook.  Thomas Ryan did an interesting Blackhat 
presentation on "Robin Sage" where a fake account was friended by multiple military people, who in turn were posting 
iPhone and other geo-tagged images on facebook where their location was tagged and the associated names of others were 
available (I didn't actually get to attend, but I had prior knowledge of the content).

So while this type of stuff is great Conspiracy Theory fodder, I seriously doubt that there is some illegal military 
operation behind the attacks on Wikileaks.  If they had any additional information they wished to share, there are a 
million other ways of getting the data out there - we'd be seeing that stuff on Twitter instead of tech updates.  I 
think we'd also be seeing Facebook takedowns as well...

T

P.S.  I think I'm going to set up a social network for hookers and call it "Twatter" if anyone is interesting in 
investing.

This will be my first and last post on this topic (again).

I've just finished watching some videos about what wikileaks have been doing.

It appears that they released a bunch of documents that revealed information such as GPS co-ords + details of those who 
co-op'd with soldiers. He also posted the names of these people too, and a bunch of information which could jeopardise 
the protection of soldiers on the ground, from all countries.

I can appreciate his previous efforts, but what he has done here is put many lifes at risk, both civilians and soldiers.

So, if the US military have launched an all our war on Wikileaks, whether it be legal or not, I can't say it would be 
entirely shocking.

Sorry to all of those who think this is "gossiping", but:

Wikileaks has been down for ca. 2 weeks now during which time the US has
at least cut off their financial channels.
This during a period where WL has announced another major leak release
this time re. Iraq.
What is also extremely disconcerting is the absolute silence of _all_
main street media to the topic (gag...?)

Now the latest tweet reads:
"WikiLeaks communications infrastructure is currently under attack.
Project BO move to coms channel S. Activate Reston5."

Yet again I would like to pint out that there seems to be a concerted
high power attack going on against WL
And yet again I would like to point out it would be interesting to know
what is rally happening.
And yet again I'd like to emphasize that this indeed a security issue;
it does concern netizens and citizens in general if major government
organisations engage in what seems to be a dirty war against a
whistleblowing organisation.

If anybody knows more, pls. do share insights...
