US Registrar Yanks WikiLeaks Domain

Posted by defensebaseactcomp on December 5, 2010

We have found reports in previous WikiLeaks that uphold injured contractors claims that were denied due to them not having access to them.

US Registrar Yanks WikiLeaks Domain

It is interesting that a country that espouses Freedom of Speech will resort to such tactics.

Now, some will say, “Well, he is releasing secret information that might cost lives”.

There is, however, doubtful support of that contention.

If there is a problem in that area, it is not Americans having access to that information who will pose threats to those who might be at risk. Obviously, it is foreigners who have access that pose that risk.

So, the rest of the world can read WikiLeaks, since it is only the US Registrar blocking the domain. Consequently, it is only Americans who are denied the information.

Is it, perhaps, more likely that the government doesn’t want US to know what they are up to?

What other websites will be disabled the same way, because the government doesn’t want criticism or exposure?

You can access WikiLeaks by using either of the following links:

    Well, have to retract my earlier heads up for their supposed truthout on the plain facts of what happened in Iraq because they redacted and self-censored the originals to the point of being useless to us in terms of proving our claims.

    Place, date, names etc XXXX ed out for no good reason.

    Even worse, their rendition of events do not always gel with the official original CPA/ military/ contractor accounts of the war with much of the real action missing in the WIKI reports. So the supposed real leak just justifies obliterating real events because they are not mentioned.

    This is not to say you should not check them out, just know their database is not complete, and in some ways more harmful because they pretend to be the real thing.

    You can’t have your cake and eat it, wikileaks. We are no fools. We suffered too much in real life.
