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:

    So what's so funny then? Are you stupid?

    Thanks for answering my second question; I'll accept that as an affirmative.

    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...?

    [when in doubt... it's THE SQUID...!!!]

    Reasonable hypothesis there blogger Richard Weed...

    Of course Dennis Kneale and your friends probably call you Dick...

    Right you are "Problem Child"... actually they call my Dick Weed, but you can call me Mr Dick, if you wish...!

    They call your dick, "weed?" I am giving you a chance to clarify...

    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.

    something doesn't smell right. why would wiki use servers in the u.s.? even zerohedge is smarter than that.

    Spalding_Smailes's picture

    Its all the same. We control it ...

    barkingbill's picture

    by the way spalding...you're wrong anyway. the "monkeyhammered" website is up and running and so is the cable site....seems as if team America had to punt no?

    or was that a fumble?

    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.

    I have no problem with either http://www.wikileaks.org/ or http://cablegate.wikileaks.org/. Both work for me fine and fast.

    Smailes,

    A 'rat' is a coward who sells out his mother to save his own skin, not someone who risks sticking their neck out for the benefit of ingrates like you, you tit.

    Get your tongue out of City Hall's ass spooge plug, we all know who the real ratz are:

     and as a doting 'enabler' you're equivalent to their anus'.

    Assange will be lucky to keep his life.

    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.

    Quick some one ground that Air force One.....hahahaha

    Spalding_Smailes, you are fucking idiot. "Hes a .........Rat." You use  mafia lexicon. The USA is NOT yet a mafia controlled state like Russia. 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.

    Spalding, you're fooling yourself if you think the game is over with this move.  That data has been copied the world over.  Is the NY Times going to be taken over by the government next?

    Didn't that already happen?

    Yes, silly me, I forget how politically vigilant some ZH'ers are regarding the NY Times.  Der Spiegal, will the US govt take them over?

    "Responsible Journalism" = don't print anything that bothers advertisers or your government handlers (keep in mind the government is a big octupus and some of the arms don't always agree with the others).

    Spalding_Smailes's picture

    Sure another Wikirat's will spring up.

    When she does her time will be short. Don't fight the USA you will fail.

    erik's picture

    You have faith in the government's ability to stop data flow when they couldn't protect it in the first place.  I don't share that same faith.

    Give me some insider info/video one the abortion mills in China over the last 30 years.

    Iraq war crimes/murder has nothing on this ...

    Give me some wikileaks on child prostitution mills in India,Asia ... The child slave labor in China ?

    doomandbloom's picture

    this maybe a message to similar websites....soon no one will post leaked material.

    mission -1  accomplished

    The next mission is to pass laws around censorship of the internet..

    lets see how that goes

    Alex Jones channel was removed from youtube yesterday, the infowars news feed has been removed from google news (not the google search yet!). They are shutting down free speach and the internet.

    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.
