It turns out that Amazon.com’s Cloud service is being used by Wikileaks to get around attempts to disrupt their publishing of thousands of sensitive diplomatic documents. A clear and blatant breaking of international law, an act of espionage against the United States of America.
WikiLeaks is finding some safe haven with online retailer Amazon.com following a series of hacker attacks, reports indicate. The anti-secrecy website, which says it's come under cyberattack since publishing a large collection of U.S. diplomatic cables Sunday, has tapped Amazon's cloud computing business to host data, according to the Wall Street Journal and other media.
An act that has resulted in a international warrant (wanted notice) for the arrest of Julian Assange the founder of Wikileaks. This is an action that can not be condoned by any American we must take action to force Amazon to cease giving aid to the criminal organization run by Assange. I also call for a boycott of all newspapers that betrayed the public’s trust by giving Assange a public forum to promote himself/website and allowing him to attempt to embarrass us by disseminating our dealings within the international stage, exposing only what is a vital and necessary part of being a world leader . Assange is a “stateless foreign agent” as far as I’m concern and those who aid him in his attacks on our nation need to be brought to justice and charged with treason and if convicted given the maximum sentence applicable.
All this is void if Amazon has already done the right thing, The NY Times however needs to give up their source from Wikileaks and turn over any and all information they have on Assange and his organization.
Correction/clarification: The Interpol warrant stems from rape charges Assange has denied, These charges first came to light after the release of Wikileaks’ “Collateral Murder” video and it looks like they are just now getting around to charging him. Very Interesting. I made a grammatical correction or two as well.
Update: At least two other bloggers are joining me in a call to Boycott Amazon along with a writer from the Seattle PI. (Amazon is based in Seattle)
I learned of my compatriots via the Seattle Weekly’s post expressing thinly veiled displeasure at such calls.
Update 2: Amazon Boycott called off! Amazon did the right thing and has I mentioned above my call for a boycott is now void. But the New York Times is not off the hook yet.
