Wikileaks Loses Website

Tyler Durden's picture




 

And an update from Reuters: "Amazon.com ceases hosting services for WikiLeaks website -Senator Lieberman" and  "DHS says Amazon has agreed to stop hosting WikiLeaks." Game Over

It seems the days of Wikileaks are over. The Associated Press reports that the website appears to have lost its host. The question now is who will be the next Wikileaks.

The website of WikiLeaks, the organization that just released a trove of sensitive U.S. State Department documents, appears to have lost or left its main Web host, Amazon.com.

The main website and a sub-site devoted to the diplomatic documents were unavailable from the U.S. and Europe on Wednesday, as Amazon servers refused to acknowledge requests for data.

Availability of the sites has been spotty since Sunday, when it started to come under a series of Internet-based attacks by unknown hackers. WikiLeaks dealt with the attacks in part by moving to servers run by Amazon Web Services, which is self-service.

Amazon.com Inc. would not comment on its relationship with WikiLeaks or whether it forced the site to leave. Messages seeking comment from WikiLeaks were not immediately returned.

Below are the Wikileak mirror pages. So far we can't seem to access any of them:

Real mirrors on different IP Addresses

  • wikileaks.info - Mirror hosted in Switzerland [62.2.16.94]
  • wikileaks.se - Mirror hosted in Sweden [88.80.6.179]

    Seems to me that it was Squidly... Squidly is everywhere... Assange just has stated that the next big dump of leaks would have come from a US bank... alot of folks mistakenly thought it was BAC... when all of the time it was...

    THE SQUID...!!!

    Ask yourself this question... Who else would have the power to shut down all of their servers worldwide...?

    So a senator tells Amazon to shutdown a website with no court order, ** AND THEY DO IT**.

     

    Amazon, how are you going to feel when another senator asked for your site to be shutdown?

     

    The solution?  BOYCOTT AMAZON.  Just never buy from them again.

    You're not familiar with Amazon's Cloud Services. You can host your servers anywhere in the world. Of course, Amazon still does a lot of business with the U.S. Government, so that's how they got bought out. Standard Operating Procedure here if you're familiar with infowars.

    One neat trick with the Cloud Services is for locally distributed content. E.g. shows that are only broadcast in one country. For $15 a month, you just put up an instance to be served in that country, and have it redirect the show to your local system. It's pretty neat.

    As far as censoring Wikileaks goes, this is silly. There are alternative networks which have been designed from the start to be strongly resistent to censorship. The Usenet is the oldest, and has survived from the 1980's. That one won't ever go down, and it has seen the greatest attempts possible.

    All this censorship effort has done is to raise Wikileaks higher (ala the Streisand effect). It won't stop the flow of information. There are just too many ways to distribute it.

    this is either a use Assange as a scapegoat into world war 3

    or The LAunch of Obama's new "SHUT THE BITCH down" powers.  (the net)

    See there is a bunch of sites they want to shut down. Assange is the "911" of cyber/military bullshit. 

    Lets see who Obama shuts down next?

    Why does Obama have 12 stiches in his lip?

    Because the tele prompter read " ....and now I will punch my self in the face.....I mean I will punch .....Assange.  I will punch Assange in the face.. Ya, that's it Nigger

     

    what would you do if they assinated Obama, blamed it on the terrorsits,  fast track their man Biden, to top post. New war on "domestic white terriosts" good for GNP and the police state. Biden handels the blowing up of Iran with a profitable hand. Currency keeps inflating keeping sheeple happy and fat. 

     

    Biden wins the 2012 election.

As a side note, our politicians develop plans to use arm-forces to control America in a case of a large-scale civil unrest. These politicians are idiots who do not realize that in this case the country will swiftly move to a military dictatorship with many of these politicians running for their lives.

    What is so laughable is that the government could have stopped it before it ever came out, and chose not too!  It's to late.  I am not a Wkikleaks/Assange fan but I find it curious that after the shit comes out we shut down the site and Interpol issues an arrest warrant for him.  Talk about a fuckin wicth hunt.  This is as bad as the guy who picks a fight and gets his ass kicked and then comes back later to slice the tires of the guy who kicked his ass.  This is the total reactionary behavior of a loser.

    That's been my pet theory all along.  This is how the Obama Administration deals with out of control government and banks--they start telling the truth, but it isn't "they" who can do that, but some outsiders who happen to leak certain information.  They just took out Hillary Clinton, and now they're going to take out Goldman.  It's brilliant.

    Lots of politicians know that they have been the fool, played like a grand piano. They are the patsies for the next move as the sovereign crisis turns into a political nightmare.  They played right into it, to find a proverbial gun to their head - captive of the banking cartel.  Can't take them on out in the open... so, why not covertly.  Makes sense.  A little tin-foil hatty.  But makes sense.  This whole mess does seem way to "engineered," the moves going forward like a professional game of chess.

    I second that!

    This latest release was very unusual because wikileaks allowed MSM orgs to control the release process. So you have news outfits like NYT (which is pretty much a propaganda arm of the US government) to cherry pick which cables are to be released. Why couldn't wikileaks just dump the entire 250K docs like they did last time? Why only give access to MSM orgs?

    I guess we'll find out soon. If Assange gets killed in the near future, then we'll know the guy was legit.

    You'll have access to everything the media had access to. The NYT's were given the docs by The Guardian (Wikileaks would not give them to the Times). It's good that the media gets them first because it shows how far media outlets will go to protect the state. The Times didn't get this release because of how they handled the last release. Documents are being released each day. You can download all of them. The media won't see anything that you won't be able to see. They just get to see them first.

    Wed, 12/01/2010 - 16:58 | 769574 Dont Taze Me Bro
    Dont Taze Me Bro's picture

    No, that's not correct.

    Only a few hundred cables are released to the public on the wikileaks page every day. But NYT/Guardian/etc ( it doesn't matter who got the stuff first, all MSM orgs are the same) have access to all 250K docs, hence, they get to choose the release flow in the least damaging way to the establishment.

    Sorry I misread your first word. I thought you were saying "You have access", but I just re-read your post again and saw that you were saying "You'll have access". What a difference two L's can make :)

    At any rate, that doesn't change my view one bit. Getting 200 docs per day is not the same as getting all of them at once. What I am trying to convey is that release timing in modern day media is as important as the content of the news itself. And yes you are correct, in the long run things would level out, but in the meantime, NYT and rest of the elk can cherry pick items that support their agenda. In about 2-3 months from now, people will lose interest in the topic and by then they can start releasing the more damaging stuff.

    Wed, 12/01/2010 - 20:05 | 770232 AnonymousAnarchist
    AnonymousAnarchist's picture

    I understand your point but I still think it's moot. The NYT can use the docs in whatever way they want to promote the state's agenda and continue to destroy what little credibility they might have remaining but that is no different than what they would do if all the docs had been released[*] at once or if no docs had been released at all.

    As Arthur Silber said in a recent post...

    To justify its quest, the United States invents a series of terrifying threats, all of which, in one way or another, are alleged to be “existential” threats to our very survival. With almost no exceptions at all, the leaders of the American Empire concoct these threats out of nothing.

     

    Nothing.

    Consider the fact with great care. With this momentous and endlessly horrifying fact in the forefront of your consciousness, ask yourself: What does it signify that those who seek still further war and conquest will use the Wikileaks material to provide more supposed justification for their murderous actions? To ask the question, to ask it with the nature and history of American Empire in mind, is to see how completely irrelevant it is when evaluating Wikileaks and its work.

    Of course they’ll use the Wikileaks material to justify their policies. That’s what they do. They do it with everything — and they do it with absolutely nothing. I repeat: That is what they do.

    If you want to avoid their using the Wikileaks material, or anything else, to justify their policies, there is one course you can follow, and only one. Henceforth, you can say nothing whatsoever. But if you choose to resist the profound evil committed by the U.S. government, evil which it continues to commit today and will commit again tomorrow, you must reject that course.

    To drive the point home, let me express it another way. As demonstrated repeatedly by the historical record and by events today, the leaders of American Empire use everything and even nothing to justify their actions and policies. In this sense, the leaders of American Empire are profoundly irrational and endlessly, murderously destructive. Their arguments are self-contradictory, massively inconsistent, and frequently incoherent. Yet today’s leaders of American Empire also possess the most frighteningly powerful weaponry and military in all of history. From this perspective, the Empire has all the power.

    In comparative terms (and even in absolute terms), Wikileaks has no capabilities or powers at all — except for one. And that is the ability to make information available to everyone, information which the otherwise all-powerful leaders of Empire seek to keep secret from those they rule, and from those they seek to subjugate in the future. In this context, and especially when we keep in mind the gaping abyss between the powers of Empire and the single power of Wikileaks, to blame Wikileaks (or anyone similarly situated) for the improper use of the material they release is to blame Wikileaks for someone else’s irrationality and immense destructiveness. It is to blame Wikileaks for actions over which Wikileaks has no control whatsoever.

    Does that make any sense at all? No, it doesn’t.

    Beyond this, it is critical to appreciate the further implication. In effect, Forte and others who make the same criticism seek a mediating authority: that is, they seek some means to ensure that leaked material is used only for purposes they view as “good.” But this represents a failure to understand the nature of the work to which Wikileaks is devoted, just as it represents a failure to escape the reliance on authority itself. Forte (and others) want authority to serve a purpose that is very different from that of the Empire — but they still want an authority to make their desired outcome more likely.

    But the very purpose of Wikileaks is to challenge any and every authority of this kind. For Wikileaks, the only authority that matters — the only person who is ultimately entitled to all available information and who properly should judge it — is you. In this sense, which I submit is the highest and best sense of the term, Wikileaks is a genuine “leveller.” It seeks to make each and every individual the ultimate judge of the truth, just as it seeks to empower all people to make the determination as to what course of action is indicated, if any. This, dear reader, is what a real revolution looks like.

    His latest is also worth a read. Don't worry about the sheep.

    [*] I personally think that if they didn't trickle out, the NYT would stop talking about them after a week. Now they won't be able to.

Do ya think this might change how things are done, just a little?  What do you think will happen if the guvmnt tries to limit or censor the internet now?  This is amazing stuff and I'm sure much more will be exposed  in a brief period of time.

    retribution is a bad concept...bring people to justice for criminal acts is more appropriate.  When they are tried and convicted then they can be sentenced to the appropriate punishment...to me that would include taking away all of their and their family's assets, putting them on a boat, taking them out to sea and chaining 100 lbs. of weight to their ankles before consigning them to the briny deep. (how's that for justice?)

    To be expected, actually, given the last batch of cables Wikileaked:

    America's CIA completely compromised the Spanish judicial system by pressuring and colluding with prosecutors in Spain to nullify court cases in progress (reminds one of those Swedish prosecutors gone wild, hmmm?).

    And Hillary Clinton's clearly hatred for democracy and her acting in contravention of United Nations charter and rules (which she is supposed to adhere to).

    And the fact that America's deficits grow rather colossally each time the VP of Afghanistan moves millions of dollars to offshore United Arab Emirates' accounts ($17.7 billion unaccounted for Afghanistani military aid).

    Oh yeah, and that item about Saudi Arabia financing al Qaeda.

    Losing a host means close to nothing.

    Just look at various Islamic anti-American or anti-Russian websites. From time to time, they do lose their hosts and in week or two they are back in business.

    I have different issues with WikiLeaks:

    • Why does WikiLeaks clear the contents of their releases with major media? It is not a big secret that the mainstream media in America and EU are controlled by the ruling elite and the governments.
    • How come are WikiLeaks releases sanitized to the point that no real secret information ever released?
    • WikiLeaks is not that stupid to know that by releasing really sensitive information they may expose itself to CIA, Mossad, and other thugs. These people did not hesitate to take out JFK or execute the 9/11 or, just recently, slaughter the entire Polish leadership in Russia with EU and American approval.

    Something is not that simple with WikiLeaks.

    Do they do it for money? No.

    Do they do it for publicity? No.

    So, why do they do it and who provides them with information? Just the volume and contents of WikiLeaks releases tells me that it is quite a sizable operation.

    IMHO, their is a very sizable split in the USA ruling elite. I  think that the Ruling elite is very concern about the entire geopolitical, political, and economic situation in America. I do not think the ruling elite will allow Jews to have a complete control of America and its future.  They know very well that Jews will ruin the country and the the ruling elite future.

    1. There has not been a trace of freedom in this country since the early 1960s

    2. What part of stealing and publishing private emails and documents represents freedom? It's a violation of black letter law.

    3. The scarier implication is that after two major leaks of united states classified documentation there were no actions taken by the feds. Upon assanga's threat to release Bank of America's private documents, assanga is charged with rape, and warrents are issued for his arrest to interpol. Torrent sites are shut down by the DHS to freeze any pontential transfers of data, the site is hacked to keep it from issuing any more releases. Now anything resembling wikileaks is blocked. Assanga is headed to the torture chamber until BOA gets that thumb drive back.

    4. Much like the climategate leak, this will be completely forgotten in six months, and all of the raw data will be destroyed. Right down the memory tube.

    Until then, no credibility should be given to Wikileaks.. All way to convenient for my taste.. Doesn't pass the smell test..  And no, i'm not a hippie liberal..

    I couldn't agree more. And nothing short of that would do it for me either.

    Pretty much tells one all they need to know about who really runs things - and has run things for a very, very long time.

    The psychopaths worry little about karmic retribution but the sociopaths are scared of having their eyes dug out with mellon ballers.

    Seriously. Something has to be done about those 2 groups. As it is the sociopaths recieve several benefits from the psychopaths. But it's become a managing expectations problem. The psychopaths will behave but they won't keep it up and they can't be changed. So they set up big "show" changes where some raping killing fucktard pretends he's figured out what he's doing is wrong.

    They keep trying to sell the uncondintional love crap which takes the expectations management out of everyones hands and puts it clearly in the sociopaths hands which is why they've become so good at it. Everything from constantly harping about how many advances we'll make and how good things will end up if we stick with them all the way to trying to teach us to accept rapists, thieves, all kinds of crap. The sociopaths don't really love the psychopaths but they can pretend hard enough to make them believe they have friends and support. Then they just sick them on us in however way they see fit.

    The problem is the sociopaths don't really love the psychopaths and know they can't change them. But we should still stick them with them forever and bury them behind a fuck off wall. After all they did benefit from them the whole time. So it's only fair that they pay the piper now. Like I said they psychopaths don't care. They've been treated to the worst we can dish up. So they really aren't afraid. It's the sociopaths that are scared shittless. Because their role in the whole thing is becoming clearer and clearer by the day and they know they psychopaths aren't really going to appreciate them all of a sudden thinking it's a good idea to dump them off. And the people are going to be too fooled for nearly an eternity to know exactly what has to be done.

    You can't make a decent society with this shit. It's just how long it will take people to realize this.

    "...and in the wake of these events we're left asking ourselves if we do, in fact, have too much freedom on the internet. We must make laws to make sure this doesn't happen again. The terrorists are winning! Diplomatic 9/11! B'YOAH!..."

    They'll just find a different internet host.  They'll be back with in 48 hours, or after the DoS attack is repelled.

    Not with the NSA controlling the name servers.  The F-117 is now public knowledge.  Their power over the internet has been secret until a strong enough motivation required the revealing of their pwer.

    Perhaps China would be interested in now hosting WikiLeaks?

    China is blocking access to Wikileaks.  http://news.idg.no/cw/art.cfm?id=9BE721E2-1A64-67EA-E4FD8EF635EC6E77

    LOL.  I laugh at so-called Americans (traitors at heart) who look to China as some sort of savior.

    And I laugh at so-called americans (outright traitors to their constitution) who still see america as some sort of democracy, and not a state currently ruled by a politcal system more or less equally as authoritarian as the bogeyman's they've been spoon-fed, China's.
