Amazon Drops WikiLeaks Website
WikiLeaks’ website meanwhile was temporarily shut down on Wednesday after the online giant Amazon dropped it from its servers. Independent Senator Joe Lieberman, chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, said Amazon had acceded to his demand to stop hosting WikiLeaks. In a post to its Twitter account, WikiLeaks said, "If Amazon are so uncomfortable with the first amendment, they should get out of the business of selling books." In Washington, U.S. State Department spokesperson P.J. Crowley criticized Assange for calling on Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to resign over her orders for U.S. diplomats to spy on foreign officials.
Every patriotic American supports what Wikileaks is doing. Period.
Update: I canceled my Amazon account today. This brings up a problem unrelated to Amazon's anti American decision to take down the Wikileaks site. Instead of allowing users to enter their data during each transaction, which is the safer and more responsible practice, Amazon requires users to set up an account. The result of their policy and their accounts setup is that anyone with password cracking software can get into your account and get a huge amount of information that would be incredibly useful for identity theft. Even if you aren't bothered by Amazon's censorship of web whistleblowers, protecting your identity online should be a major consideration.
