Update: Amazon Kicks WikiLeaks Out of the Cloud

As expected:

WikiLeaks has been "ousted" from server space rented from the U.S.-based internet retailer Amazon.com, the website behind a massive disclosure of confidential U.S. documents announced Wednesday.

"WikiLeaks servers at Amazon ousted. Free speech the land of the free," the organization, which facilitates the anonymous leaking of secret information, posted on its Twitter page Wednesday evening. "Fine -- our $ are now spent to employ people in Europe."

I haven't seen an official statement from Amazon and several websites are speculating quite pedantically about which clauses of the Amazon AWS contract were invoked to kick WikiLeaks to the curb.

Strangely, Senator Lieberman is claiming credit for Amazon's decision to pull the plug:

U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman, chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs committee, said Amazon cut off WikiLeaks after inquiries from his aides. In a statement issued by his office, the Connecticut independent called on any other company hosting WikiLeaks to follow suit.

Um, okay?

WikiLeaks is now bemoaning the state of the First Amendment in the United States, having apparently no idea what the First Amendment actually contains.

Yeah, dumbasses even think that "separation of church and state" isn't in the First Amendment.

2 That's the best news I've heard all day.

I, like I'm sure many others, wrote to Amazon to let them know that I would think twice about dealing with them if they deal with the likes of Wikileaks.

Now, we just need to get that Assange guy, give him a fair trial and if found guilty, make him the Unibomber's neighbor in Ultramax.

19 Here's the money quote from Lieberman:
"WikiLeaks' illegal, outrageous, and reckless acts have compromised our national security and put lives at risk around the world," he said. "No responsible company -- whether American or foreign -- should assist WikiLeaks in its efforts to disseminate these stolen materials."
By that logic, shouldn't the New York Times have been the first "responsible company" to have received a call from Lieberman? Perhaps it's that they aren't a responsible company?

IIRC, they were the ones who told the press they moved the site to Amazon AWS in the first place. They should've paid a little more attention to the fine print in that on-line registration process.

They then become an accesory to Spying, as they are helping to make this material available to foreign agents (through the Web). They could also be brought up on charges of TREASON, for providing material to our enemies.

Amazon has speech rights too. Isn't it an American corporation? Posted by: slickdpdx

You're confusing the issue. Commenters here are responding to Assange's claim that he has the right of free speech on Amazon's servers, not that Amazon has the right of free speech vis a vis the US government. The claim is not that Amazon was shut down by the Fed's but that Amazon shut down TiddlyWinks.

Also, I do not believe the bill of rights islimited to U.S. citizens, its about limiting thegovernment's powers to do things.

Posted by: slickdpdx

The bill of rights is limited to US citizens because the US government does not have sovereignty over citizens of other countries. We (the US) cannot claim to guarantee the freedoms of those that live elsewhere.

The concept that visitors to the US are accorded the same or similar freedoms is only because of convention and our exceedingly generous application of reciprocity and international law.

Wikileaks website founder Julian Assange is in Britain and police know

international warrant for his arrest, a British newspaper said on
Thursday.


The 39-year-old Australian, who
founded the whistle-blowing website that has disclosed a trove of
secret U.S. diplomatic cables, supplied British police with contact
details upon his arrival in October, The Independent said.
The
newspaper cited police sources who said they knew where Assange was
staying and had his telephone number. It added that it was believed he
was in southeast England.http://tinyurl.com/22plvyy

I gather that it's not short term toxic, but long term. IOW, our life expectancy is much longer so we're for sure going to develop the cancers that come from exposure. The animals don't live as long, though I gather the lack of mutations is a surprise to some. But yeah, it's flourishing.... fruit trees, animals etc. Ironically, the asphalt-concrete are the safest places to walk, stand or drive on. If it's organic, it's much more dangerous.I find it fascinating in a morbid kinda way.

It'd be a great place to hide or preserve anything, and yeah.... just put all the endangered species there--- especially the edible onees. It'd make a wonderful book or movie plot. There are actually small settlements of people who've returned to live in some of the less hot spots (the radiation fell in splotches so you'll have a relative safe area in the middle of a super-hot zone).Very Mad-Maxish without the desert parts.

Recruiter did phone screen and passed on the resume, they company asked whether I had a non-compete with an ex-employer - yes. Didn't plan on going to a competitor, left to go to another industry altogether and that glorious plan went tits up when the guy who hired me left before my temp-to-perm went perm. So I have 9 more months of non-compete left.
