Julian Assange through his Wikileaks website promises greater government transparency. But his document dumps have angered officials around the world.
US Senator Joseph Lieberman has pressured internet companies to withdraw their services from Wikileaks. Rather than protect internet freedom, Amazon and PayPal have willingly complied with US demands.
Efforts to take down Wikileaks have proven futile, thanks to mirror sites.
Meanwhile, Assange has been arrested in the UK on rape charges. He has vowed to release more documents in a ‘nuclear’ option if arrested or killed.
